The gorgeous beaches in the Dominican Republic are considered the most enticing outdoor sights that you'll find in the region.
If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, ClubHotel Riu Mambo is the right spot for you. This lodging is situated on the shore, so guests can spend as much time as they like soaking up the sun if that will make them happy. No matter the time of year, there are crowds of people who visit this popular area of the Dominican Republic, creating a fun setting for water activities and being social; however, it is known to get a bit crowded at times.
Of course, since ClubHotel Riu Mambo is located directly on, hanging out at the beach is one of the main attractions here. For guests who want to venture farther away, there are some additional beaches worth investigating. Click the names below to see more details:
