The Dominican Republic offers guests many interesting recreational possibilities, and will appeal especially to energetic travelers. Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo is an excellent vacation destination for those who prefer to have many on-site options and give new activities a try.

Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo has one pool. Heading to the pool may not be at the top of your to-do list, but it can be a refreshing way to relax and re-energize before sunset. Even when they stay at a vacation spot with a pool, many guests spend so much time on the Dominican Republic's beaches that they don't use the hotel's pool at all. One of the closest beaches to the property is Guibia Beach, which is three quarters of a mile away. A long soak in the whirlpool on-location is another way to spend time in the water.

Fitness nuts won't need to put their workout routines on pause at this location; there is an on-site workout facility for health-conscious guests.


Those who play tennis will be especially pleased when staying at this location, because its tennis facilities — located on-site — can be a convenient and healthy family activity. The court here does have lighting so you can avoid the midday rush and set up an after-hours match.

Where else can you stay and play on-site tennis? You can compare Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo to other hotels in the area that also have courts, like Renaissance Jaragua Hotel and Casino and Hotel Santo Domingo.


Despite the fact that Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo doesn't have a golf course, you may be able to arrange a tee time during your stay. The area's closest courses are Isabel Villas Golf, Las Lagunas Country Club, and Santo Domingo Country Club. Each is within traveling distance, and the closest of the group is Isabel Villas Golf. The course has 9 holes. This 1047 yard course has been rated a par 27. For golfers who want to learn more, the course can be reached at (809) 549-6841.
