My recommendation is to take a taxi to the nearest Cabana. Which will cost you 600 pesos to get there. They are mostly for illicit sexual encounters, but for about 500 pesos for 4 hour you can stay until morning. Arrange for the taxi to pick you up 4 hours later when the buses are running and have him take you to the closest of the two Caribe Tours bus stations. Your hotel should have free service to pick you up from the Puerto Plata Caribe Tours bus station.

    1. Don't travel at night.
    2. Don't rent a car.
    3. Don't use Uber.
    4. Yes, stay in Santiago that 1st night, because, see #1. Somebody here will be able to recommend a good place to stay in la Segunda Capital (Santiago).
    5. Somebody here, can recommend public transport or a taxi company which can take you from Santiago to Infiniti Blu.
    6. Mistakes and accidents happen, but be careful here on out, because you're traveling to a foreign country. You need to be on point with things. Even the small, annoying things.
    7. Be careful.
    8. Have fun.
    9. Stay safe.
    ...whats the problem with uber, ? live in Santiago use them all the time...half the price. mostly better cars....more beer stops.... easy morning drive to puerto plata... you will be on the beach before lunch... done that trip many times... from middle of Santiago to your hotel, using uber a little less than $50 US.......Doc......

    Maybe it's not a problem with Uber but with the time that this person will be arriving. I wouldn't take or recommend Uber after sundown in a foreign country either if it was my first time visiting.

    Noted in your original post,your destination is Infiniti Blue which is in Sosua not Puerto Plata. When agreeing on the price of a taxi ride its important to give the correct destination to avoid overcharge. Safe travels.

    cbmitch9 describes my reasoning here.
