The Caribbean is known for its gorgeous weather and sweeping views, but like all destinations in the region, they have their own brand of nightlife too. No matter if your favorite venue is a lively lounge or an intimate nightclub, you'll find lots to do in the evening, particularly if you choose a hotel with places on-site for guests to drink and mingle.
The properties listed here are worth considering if you appreciate the Caribbean's beauty during the daytime, but want a "night on the town" experience in the evening. Some are known for keeping their guests entertained on the premises, while others are in particularly good locations for hopping to nearby venues.
Each of the properties listed in the table below have been selected for their above par nightlife and entertainment, or for having some wonderful nearby entertainment venues. Starting with the Sanctuary Cap Cana Golf and Spa, the best are listed first; their ratings were created to consider a few different details, including the hotels' on-site and nearby shows, bars, lounges, and more.
