Golden Sand Golf & Beach Resort

Location

A 15-minute cab ride from the airport brings guests to the hotel complex.

Golden Sand is near the entrance of Puerto Plata's Playa Dorada complex. Playa Dorada is about 15 minutes west of the Puerto Plata airport.

Playa Dorada is a gated complex of 15 hotels, a golf course, a convention center, two casinos, and a shopping mall located just east of downtown Puerto Plata. The neatly manicured mini-city has horse-drawn carriages that promenade up and down main street at all hours. It's extremely safe and walkable, even at night -- it feels like a gated golf community in the United States. The hotels in the complex range from Casa Colonial, a luxury five-star hotel (one of the nicest resorts in the D.R.), to a plethora of budget all-inclusives and time-shares geared toward families and young partiers, like Viva Wyndham, Grand Paradise, and the Celuisma Tropical. In the center of the complex is Playa Dorada Plaza, a two-story open-air shopping center that caters heavily to tourists with souvenir stalls, sundry and tobacco shops, a playground, and a couple liquor stores. There are also a few ATMs and banks, as well as restaurants and bars including Hemingway's, Senor Rock's, Coco Bongo, and even a Pizza Hut.
