Things to See and Do While Staying at Hotel El Rancho

Though visitors might not find too many recreational possibilities on-site at Hotel El Rancho, that shouldn't imply there aren't plenty of other fun things to see and do during your time in the Dominican Republic.

There is one pool at Hotel El Rancho. With so much to see and do in the Dominican Republic, going to the pool may not be your top priority, but it could provide a brief escape from public attractions. Truthfully, even with access to a pool, most travelers like visiting the beach so much that they don't need to use the hotel's pool. The closest beach to the property is Alicia Beach.

While there's no guarantee you won't overload on the Dominican Republic's delicious cuisine, Hotel El Rancho makes it easier to stay healthy; you'll find everything you need at their on-site exercise facility.


Although there isn't a golf course at Hotel El Rancho, you can always ask the property's staff about trying to arrange a tee time nearby. There are a couple of courses within within taxi range of Hotel El Rancho. Their names are Costa Azul and Playa Dorada Golf Course. The most proximate of your choices is Playa Dorada Golf Course. It has a total of 18 holes. It's a par 72 course, and is 6309 yards long. If you'd like more information or want to inquire about the possibility of reserving a tee time, contact the course at (809) 320-4262.
