Things to See and Do While Staying at Hotel Palacio

Even though visitors probably won't find tons of recreational activities on-site at Hotel Palacio, that shouldn't imply you won't encounter plenty of other exciting things to do and see when you visit the Dominican Republic.

Hotel Palacio has one pool. Lounging by the pool might not be the most anticipated activity on your list, but it's a simple enough way to re-energize before nightfall. In fact, even when staying at a property with a pool, most guests spend so much time on the Dominican Republic's beaches that they don't make much use of the swimming pool. The nearest beach to Hotel Palacio is Montesinos Beach, which is a half mile away. After a long day of walking, it might also be nice to ease into their whirlpool.

Guests here won't have to put their exercise routines on pause; the on-site exercise facility is bound to have all the space and equipment you need.


Although Hotel Palacio doesn't have a golf course on the property, it may be possible to arrange for a tee time nearby. Nearby courses include Santo Domingo Country Club, Las Lagunas Country Club, and Isabel Villas Golf. Each is within traveling distance, and the closest of the collection is Isabel Villas Golf. This course has 9 holes total. The course has a total length of 1047 yards, and it has been rated as a par 27. For golfers who want to learn more, the course can be reached at (809) 549-6841.
