Dining, Nightlife & Casinos


The Dominican Republic has a tremendous amount of casinos. In the big cities, most of the major hotels and resorts have casinos full of lights, friendly hosts, and traditional games.


Both in Santo Domingo and Santiago, the majority of hotels have their own casinos.  Santo Domingo, however, also has a lot of casinos that are independent of the hotels as well. In addition, many of the popular coastal beach destinations' large resorts feature casinos that are open 24 hours a day or at least until dawn.  In fact, Hard Rock has opened its first all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic, the new Hard Rock Punta Cana.


Dominican casinos use the same odds that are used in Las Vegas, but in a lush tropical environment. In order to make the night easier for you, many casinos have ATM's where you can cash in travelers checks and charge chips to your credit card. With a stroke of luck, you might even pay off the cost of their vacation.
