Don’t let the gray skies of winter turn your mood gray. Plan a getaway to the warm turquoise water of the Caribbean in the Dominican Republic. So pack your bags and head to the land of rum and coffee with your stay at the Hilton La Romana for Adults, an all-inclusive Dominican Republic adult resort.
The Relaxing Comes Easy at the Beach
This beautiful all-inclusive Dominican Republic adult resort is located in the La Romana area. Since it's more secluded than popular Punta Cana, it’s easy to catch up on the afternoon napping. Lose yourself in a juicy book on a Balinese bed next to the infinity pool. Then head to a beach lounger and get an extra dose of healthy glow.
The resort offers day-to-night activities for those wanting to liven up their days.
Hilton La Romana is Made for Adults
After a recent renovation, the Hilton La Romana updated the rooms, added new restaurants, and completed a pool makeover.
Enter your tropical sanctuary through an open-air lobby. Flanked by a coffee bar on one side and a cocktail bar on the other, it's a relaxing space with rattan seating.
Or head to the private reception area for premium guests. There, a butler will assist you to your room, a plus since the buildings lack elevators.
Hilton La Romana Premium Pool View Room
Based on my experience, I recommend a premium pool view room, overlooking the outdoor pool. Each room offers 411-square feet with contemporary touches along pops of tropical color.
After entering your room from an open-air corridor, stow your luggage in the reach-in closet space, including an in-room safe. Next to the closet, the beverage center offers complimentary in-room coffee, tea, sodas, bottled water, and juice along with local beer.
Luxury awaits in the bathroom with marble floors throughout the room. Then find a separate water closet and double sink vanity. You'll find a hairdryer and vanity mirror. The premium rooms at the Hilton La Romana feature Crabtree & Evelyn Verbena and Lavender toiletries.
With an extra-large space enjoy a couple’s shower. Find a rain shower head along with hand-held shower so each gets their own hot water.
Dressed with white linens and a tropical-colored coverlet, sleep late in the king-sized bed. You'll find USB plugs and reading lights located within reach.
The full-size dressing mirror offers a dramatic touch to the room. And take your morning coffee at the small table outfitted with a pair of chairs.
Outside the room, find a patio or balcony for evening cocktails overlooking the pool. Find two chairs and a side table. And the rooms at Hilton La Romana offer complimentary WiFi.
For an extra special getaway, consider the swim-out rooms with access to a pool from the patio.
