How was the weather and was there signs of storm damage from the huricanes?
It was fairly hot, mostly in the 90s. No sign of storm damage, it was 2nd week of August! Charley brushed by us a few hundred miles south of the Island, had a little wind and rain one day, so no real problems. I think they got hard hit on one of the following storms, the one that really hit Haiti hard and caused the mudslides and deaths.
Very nice, relaxing time. definitely not the place to go for nightlife, though. I will probably not return as I would like to see other places. But it is definitely one of the best values in the Caribbean. We did 7 nights stay at Hilton LaRomana with airfare and all meals, drinks (yes, including alcohol) and watersports included for $850pp. Try doing that in Bermuda or Jamaica!
