Forbes Travel Guide has published its 64th annual list of great hotels. They inspected over 1,800 locations and picked out the best for their Star Rating awards. This year, Forbes Travel Guide looked at new places in the Canary Islands, Greece, Ibiza and Malta as well as locations in traditional areas.
There were over 300 hotels that earned a five-star award, 558 won the four-star award, and there were 401 hotels that were “recommended.” The list also included restaurants, and spas.
Here in the Dominican Republic, four hotels received the four-star award: Casa de Campo, Amanera, Eden Roc at Cap Cana and Tortuga Bay at Cap Cana. The JW Marriot in Santo Domingo was recommended.
The folks at Forbes Travel Guide travel incognito and pay for their stays for two nights or more. They inspect properties and evaluate these based on up to 900 objective criteria. Most of the score is based on services and the remainder is based on the physical plant.
