As traveler and a tourist, I have visited several all-inclusive resorts including different GBPs throughout the Dominican Republic. El Portillo located in Las Terrenas highlights a proper balance of amenities and location. Las Terrenas is an exceptional spot encompassing night life (e.g., bars, restaurants along a beautiful stretch...

I've been to Mexico and Cuba but I have to say that this was the best vacation I've ever been on. The Dominican Republic is such a beautiful island filled with such beautiful, kind people.

What a great Hotel! We went from 22nd August to 5th September and almost everything about the hotel was very good. Our room was a Junior Suite and was a pretty generous size with a view overlooking one of the smaller pools - the pool shut at 7pm so there was no noise from it in the evening. The bathroom...
