Eat, play, and party to your heart's content at this all-inclusive resort on the Caribbean shores of the Samana Peninsula.

The Destination
Type "paradise" into any search engine, and you'll find thousands of photos of palm trees dangling over white-sand beaches that fade into translucent blue waters. Or as residents of Samana call it, home. Set on the northwest shores of the Dominican Republic, this Caribbean resort town has garnered worldwide renown for its abundant sunshine, uncrowded beaches, and sprawling gardens. Discover it all, courtesy of Apple Vacations.

The Digs
From the moment you arrive at Grand Bahia Principe Cayacoa—looking out over the indigo waters of Samana Bay—you'll be on top of the world. "This serene choice opens onto Samana Bay and a good beach in an area of lush landscaping," says Frommer's. Cheerfully decorated Standard Rooms offer one king or two full beds, private baths with hydro-massage tubs, and private balconies.

Your all-inclusive package covers all buffet meals, three à la carte dinners per week, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, one hour of non-motorized water sports per day, a daily activities program, and all taxes and tips. You'll also receive ground transportation from Samana Airport to the resort.

The Diversions
The laid-back atmosphere will take your stress level down to zero. Experience the height of relaxation when you purchase a massage at the resort's spa; air out by the pool; or raise your heart rate with one hour per day of windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling, and other non-motorized water sports. Looking for a bit of action? You'll have the chance to purchase two half-day excursions to El Limon Waterfall for the price of one.

Whenever hunger mounts, descend on the resort's unlimited buffet or use one of your three included à la carte meals in any of the on-site restaurants. After four days of riding high on Samana peninsula, you won't want to come back down.

  • "The best that Cayacoa offers are the mesmerizing views: the ocean, the town, and the rolling green landscape all lie before you from this hilltop perch on the bay. Also, this is the only actual hotel in the town of Samaná."
