Location

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

Map of Golden Sand Golf & Beach Resort

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.
