I rarely purchase vacation packages but found a great deal at an all inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic, which neither of us had ever been to. Wheels up!
We were whisked away in a private car upon arrival to a luxurious retreat Oceanside. The sprawling resort had a little bit of everything to keep us entertained all on site – bumping nightclub, tennis courts, multiple pools, weight room, ocean toys, football, ping pong, beachside cabanas, scuba diving lessons in the pool, hammocks hidden throughout the grounds and so on.
Two meals were included per day and we indulged in the Caribbean fare from a never ending buffet. And I remember lots of ice cream!
We went for daily runs and explored the entire campus via our own two feet. I remember even getting suckered into a timeshare presentation and laughing hysterically when they told us the buy in was 25k. But we gained admittance into the big Friday night beachside party that was over the top spectacular. A huge stage was set up with exotic dancers, live music, a fashion show and a massive buffet. This was one of the few times I actually got persuaded to dance on stage and it was a blast! (Yes, really)
The Dominican was a big party and I could definitely go back for more craziness!
