Airbnb only shows one apartment available for those dates at $48 per night. Would you be open to Boutique Hotels?

There are some really nice Boutique Hotels as Auryn mentioned. We tried 2 different ones when we renewed our residency a couple of years ago (sorry but I don't recall the names). I would suggest google the area and look at a few of them. Another suggestion would be the malecon in Santo Domingo. At the time it really rocked at night. I have no idea what will happen in either place this year with curfew and covid.

It will be fine. We just want a break from the beach and enjoy some of the Christmas festivities. Anyone know which cathedral to celebrate mass?

Think what you are looking for is: Basilica Cathedral of Santa María la Menor

I’ll also recommend Casa Sánchez, lovely colonial home converted into a boutique hotel. We spent one New Years Eve there. Location is great, very short walk to El Conde. Excellent staff, and its owner posts here.
