Is there a good hotel near puerto plata airport. I do not want to stay in Sosua. I would take something on the Malecon in Puerto Plata. Any advice would be welcomed . THANKS
The closest nice hotel to the airport is the Field of Dreams Inn across from the Playa Dorada complex. It's 12 minutes from the hotel to the airport.
On the Malecon in Puerto Plata is the Lormar hotel, it's about the center of the Malecon facing the ocean. Both cost about $40.00us per night.
The Field of Dreams Inn is now the Mustang Ranch operated by the strip club Cristal. This hotel comes with certain 'amenities' that could lead to many 'happy endings.' I don't think the OP had this type of hotel in mind.
It's called FOD, they have a website.
