Punta Cana is one of our most exciting and top trending destinations right now. Our customers consistently rave about the warmth and hospitality of the locals. And of course, this region is also renowned for its top notch beaches. Imagine miles and miles of pristine, snowy white sand nestled perfectly beside enchanting turquoise water. Come and work on your tan as the waves lull you into tranquility. Or if you are so inclined, go take a dip! The water is perfect for swimming or snorkeling thanks to the reliably warm temperature and the network of barrier reefs which protects the coast against any rough waves.

Perfect for honeymooners or couples just looking for that ultra-romantic getaway, the Zoëtry is a magnificent looking property that is tucked away in a secluded part of the coast, to ensure guests enjoy the utmost of privacy and relaxation. Every detail of this resort has been thoughtfully designed for luxury. Rooms are spacious and decorated to emit a chic, sophisticated vibe.

This is one of the most beautiful resorts in the south. Built to resemble a Spanish castle, it sits on top of a majestic oceanside cliff. The rooms here are splendid. All have outdoor space which allows you to sit back and admire the stunning vista. Other highlights include a huge spa area with its own juice bar, the wonderful pools (6 in total) and the delectable food.
This is our favourite resort in Punta Cana for families travelling with children. The selection of services and amenities catering to families is fantastic. Kids can find endless hours of entertainment at the Kid’s Zone, which includes games, rock climbing and a trampoline. The very extensive pool area is very kid friendly, with numerous water slides shaped in form of fun and colourful animals. Furthermore, parents who need a hand throughout the day can take advantage of the family concierge and babysitting services.
This is another great resort that caters to couples and honeymooners. However, it tends to attract more of a party crowd than the other couples resorts on this list. The amenities are simply fantastic. The pool is enormous and includes a relaxing lazy river. The swim-up bar is always very lively, and a great place to mingle with other guests. The spa is definitely something we highly recommend, as it’s a fantastic place to seek out some quiet time! Make sure to check out the great outdoor courtyard where staff will bring you tropical fruit juices.
This is a massive resort that can accommodate all types of vacationers. The list of amenities here is endless. It has 13 pools and restaurants, 23 bars, a golf course, a very active kid’s club, and the largest casino in the Dominican Republic — so you can always be assured of finding an activity that suits your mood. Although it is such a massive operation, kudos go out to the staff for keeping the property so well run and maintained. Rooms are very spacious and perfectly clean. The service is impeccable. In spite of the number of guests that converge on this resort, guests are never felt like they are lost in the crowd. The staff always make a point of ensuring that each guest is carefully taken care of and that they are having a great time.
