There are a number of ways to occupy your time in the Dominican Republic, and the Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo is an excellent place to stay if you plan to take advantage of this incredible island setting. This vacation spot boasts an impressive range of recreational possibilities, which means you'll have lots of interesting activities to enjoy during your stay.

At Crowne Plaza Santo Domingo, guests will have access to one pool. You'll have plenty to keep you occupied in the Dominican Republic, so you may not find many reasons to visit the site's pool, but it might provide a convenient place to lounge until your next activity. Plenty of travelers like to spend their days at the closest shore even when a pool is available. One of the closest beaches to the property is Guibia Beach, which is three quarters of a mile away. If you're not fond of swimming, the site's whirlpool provides a different way to enjoy the water.

Guests here won't have to put their exercise routines on pause; there is an exercise facility on-site.


Tennis enthusiasts might want to consider staying at this property, because the tennis facilities — located on-site — can be a convenient and healthy family activity. There is only one court here, but it does have lighting for when your schedule is full of afternoon activities, and you'd rather skip out on the sunburn and play when it's cooler.

To find more nearby tennis courts, you may wish to compare this property to other hotels in the area that also have courts, like Renaissance Jaragua Hotel and Casino and Hotel Santo Domingo.
