Meliá Caribe Tropical - All Inclusive

Great experience

Nice place to have a a vacation with your kids and family . Excellent restaurants choices and excellent staff. My room was huge (the level) and clean. The only thing that happened was that we lost the water for 20 minuets the first night however, it was something that occurred for all rooms. So I’m not going to complain for that because I definitely enjoyed my trip. My kids loved the place. The pools were amazing. The beach was okay. Drinks and foods no complaints whatsoever. I would definitely pick this hotel for my next trip.

Catalonia Royal Bavaro - Adults Only - All Inclusive

Had the time of my life!

This hotel was everything I expected and more. The landscape is aboslutely gorgeous, and there are fun activities every day of the week. It´s a short walk away from the beach. The staff are friendly and always trying to make the experience better for you. Take the free shuttle to the market so that you can see how they roll authentic Dominican Cigars, then go to the chocolate museum. The only thing I would do different, is that we felt a little harassed every day that we were there. As soon as we came through the room, they tried to up sell another more expensive room, and then tried several times to get us to sit through time share presentations. If you don´t make an appointment they will call you every day

Dreams Dominicus La Romana All Inclusive

Can't Wait to Go Back!

We visited this resort May of 2017, and May of 2018. So this is our second year staying here for our anniversary! The value for your money is unbeatable, and the beach and ocean are so good it will ruin you to other beaches. The grounds are beautiful, the rooms are comfortable and clean, the layout is nice, the food is great, and the service, especially at the Sugar Reef bar, is exceptional. The front desk/lobby staff needs some work. I'd recommend booking transportation through the resort, and bring tip money!

Now Onyx Punta Cana All Inclusive

Great stay

i totally recommend staying at this resort especially for families. The staff were AMAZING. I would like to give a special shoutout to Julia Aka Julia Roberts by the pool bar. Very friendly server and very attentive. The hotel is very new therefore everything about he resort is good so far. The only complaint I have is not a lot of selections of different foods in the buffet. The food in the buffet can feel very repetitive other than that, I really enjoyed my stay at the resort.

Pro tips from our travel blog: Everything you need to know for a perfectly rewarding trip to Punta Cana

Stay at gorgeous, palm-lined resorts in Punta Cana

Imagine teeing off on golf courses where the waves of the Caribbean Sea practically lap the fairways, dining in restaurants where the scent of seafood wafts through the air while Michelin-starred chefs work away in the kitchen, and beachcombing sands that resemble heaven on Earth. Punta Cana presents all of this and more, set on the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic in the Caribbean. Gorgeous all-inclusive resorts allow for swimming, sunbathing and spa treatments, while outside of the beaches guests can enjoy an energetic nightlife and excursions to other islands.


Things to do
Beaches

With more than 200 miles of white sand, the resort of Punta Cana is nearly surrounded by beaches. Lined with coconut and palm trees, the softest shores can be found in the north around Playa Bavaro. El Cortecito Beach is close to the downtown area, which is smaller and considered a fisherman's village. Further south, the beaches become rockier and more rugged. Juanillo is one of the most secluded at the end of Punta Cana —an upscale and luxurious setting.

Activities

Aquatic adventures range from fishing and snorkeling to windsurfing and speed boat trips. Golfing enthusiasts will revel in the dozen nearby golf courses; Punta Cana is the biggest golf destination in the Caribbean. Since rain showers are few and far between, you are sure to complete a round without a care. One of the most popular courses is located in Cap Cana and was designed by golf legend Jack Nicklaus.

Shopping

Souvenirs and beachwear are some of the most popular purchases in Punta Cana. The Plaza Bavaro Shopping Center provides a mixture of modern and traditional gifts. Next to the beach, El Cortesito Flea Market is filled with several shops selling Caribbean clothing and quirky trinkets. For a more traditional shopping trip, the Palma Real will remind you of home, since brand name items are available.

Dining

Punta Cana restaurants cater to both quick meals and more upscale tastes. Grab an easy slice of pizza, a plate of sushi or wonderful Mexican fare. Families love the wide selection of food for the kids, and fine dining restaurants like Simon Mansion and the Jellyfish abound for those seeking something classy. Many travelers stay at all-inclusive resorts where meals are complimentary inside a range of on-site venues, meaning that guests can save your money for exploring or souvenirs.


Where to stay

Punta Cana houses the highest number of all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean. Large luxury resorts like Barcelo offer swim-up bars, sports courts, kid’s clubs, casinos and massages, while smaller more intimate properties such as Tortuga Bay still have luxurious touches including canopy beds, terraces and access to a lush eco reserve. Several family-friendly Punta Cana hotels boast lower prices and fun activities too.


Special events
Punta Cana Carnival

Although many travelers will not leave resort grounds during a vacation, it is possible to enjoy events in the town. For instance, the Punta Cana Carnival takes place each March in the Village. A parade filled with top carnival troops and colorful costumes from all over the Caribbean proceeds through the streets, and live concerts showcase musical talent.

Tango Fest

A more romantic event is the annual tango festival. Dance lovers travel in from all over the world and boogie the entire weekend.


Best time to visit

The best time to visit Punta Cana is spring. Crowds are few, and the weather is warm with temperatures in the low 80s. It is also possible to find great hotel deals at this time. Winter months are busy, and Punta Cana hotels have expensive rates. Summer and fall experience frequent tropical storms.
