So flying in on final approach to Santo Domingo on Sat. Dec 3rd so picture perfect! Came into 80+ weather. Finally, thru customs. On the way to get our transfer. Oh, what a ride that was! Give me driving thru Philly any day!First night at the Melia. Very nice hotel, very well-suited for the business traveler. Enjoying the local sites. The relaxation by the pool.And a beautiful sunset my first night in Santo Domingo. Tomorrow starts the fun of extreme walking. My co-workers and I off to Boca Chica. Off to hotel number 1 of 20! Now arriving at Hamaca Suites in Boca Chica. View from the lounge. Now onto the next amazing property – Casa de Campo. The lobby, celebration drinks, AMAZING FOOD, and amazing view. This is the side of the island I would stay…calm waters compared to Punta Cana side. But, I will be showing you a property there I would stay at. This property is higher end but worth every penny! Now onto La Romana….ready to dive in….it was so hot and humid…July weather in the northeast. this is Be Live Canoa – for the budget conscience family. Now onto Dreams La Romana…everywhere we stopped hotels would greet you with cold scented washcloths to refresh you and a cold drink….it really hit the spot! Beautiful gardens….inviting beds…gorgeous views!Welcome to the Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus … the most unbelievable landscaping...
did someone say buffet! Seeing and eating is believing!
END OF DAY ONE WITH MY CO-WORKERS! 6 PROPERTIES DOWN..14 MORE TO SEE. But, actually many more than that since many properties contained several levels of properties on one-site. Some as many as 4-6, so I think each day of walking was 5 –10 miles of walking. So yes, this was work at it’s hardest. Beautiful location none the less.
So how did this happen – details coming up in Day 2 of our site inspections.
