A team of Oyster reporters spent weeks exploring 82 hotels in the Dominican Republic. We slept in the beds, lounged by the pools, ate in the restaurants, and even sampled the nightlife, all with an eye toward selecting the most distinguished properties. Here's a list of our favorite hotels for a party-hearty spring break -- places with great beaches, free-flowing booze, a party atmosphere and fun activities. Just keep in mind that the Dominican Republic is more popular with Europeans than Americans, so like-minded spring breakers won't be as prevalent as at other destinations (like Negril, Jamaica).
