Punta Cana is packed with all-inclusive resorts, and for good reason – miles of white sandy beach and water sports galore make it a prime vacation destination for families, couples and friends.
We narrowed down the best Punta Cana all-inclusive resorts to help you plan your next vacation:
Zoetry Agua Punta Cana
The all-inclusive Zoetry Agua has an exclusive, romantic vibe. Picture a bright blue infinity pool set against the Caribbean sea, bungalow-style rooms with thatched roofs and large soaking tubs, and a palm-studded private beach. Zoetry places an emphasis on wellness, and this resort is no exception. Guests can enjoy luxury spa treatments, yoga classes, and organic dining with plenty of vegetarian options.
Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro
Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavaro is an adults-only resort with sophisticated amenities like a two-story ocean view spa, stylish daybeds at the pool, and swim-out suites with butler service. A large Spanish ship replica sits alongside the resort, and transforms into a lively music bar for evening entertainment.
Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
Breathless Punta Cana is the perfect resort for singles, couples and friends who want to socialize. The modern resort has colorful suites with whirlpool tubs on the balconies, and trendy dining options like tapas and Lebanese cuisine. Several of the restaurants have communal seating, and there’s an open plaza with bars to encourage social gatherings.
Majestic Colonial Punta Cana
The huge lagoon pool stretches all the way to the beach at Majestic Colonial Punta Cana. The all-inclusive resort has something for everyone, including an adults-only section with swim-up suites and a separate pool with slides for kids. Rooms at the resort feel luxurious with marble floors, jetted tubs and rain showers. In the evening, guests can enjoy live music, a disco and a casino. That pool though!
Majestic Elegance Punta Cana
Majestic Elegance Punta Cana offers lots of modern features like an exclusive adults-only section, rooms with flat-screen TVs and multi-jet showers, and swim-up suites with direct access to the pool. Restaurants range from a sushi bar to Argentinean steakhouse, and Il Bottaccio restaurant offers wine tastings.
Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana
This family-focused resort made a big splash when it debuted this past spring. Kids will love surprise slimings and visits from their favorite Nickelodeon characters. Room options range from crowd pleasing swim-up suites to spacious villas, including the Pineapple Villa inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants.
CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts
CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts defines the “treat yourself” mantra. Imagine a DJ booth in the center of a lively pool, an oxygen bar, and rooms with guest-controlled mood lighting. There’s even a unique mermaid pool designed specifically for photo opportunities. As if these amenities weren’t enough, guests can upgrade to VIP status for an exclusive lounge and dedicated butler service.
Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana
Thirteen pools, a lazy river, stylish suites, and an exciting casino make the Hard Rock Punta Cana a rock n’ roll resort. If you think the music-themed resort is just for head bangers, think again. The resort caters to families, with two-bedroom suites, a rock-climbing wall, arcade, and kids’ program with musical activities. Adults can unwind at the spa and enjoy a night out at the resort’s casino and nightclub.
Sanctuary Cap Cana by Alsol
Sanctuary Cap Cana by Alsol was recently converted to an adults-only resort. Resembling a Spanish castle, the luxury resort has impressive suites with espresso machines, minibars, and furnished balconies. Enjoy a dinner at Blue Marlin, the resort’s seafood restaurant perched on stilts overlooking the Caribbean Sea.
Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa
The all-inclusive, beachfront Dreams Punta Cana is perfect for both couples and families. The resort has one of the largest pools in the Dominican Republic, stretching from the lobby to the beach. There’s a pirate ship waterslide and game room for kids, and a full-service spa and casino for adults. Everyone will love the dining options, which range from burgers on the beach to grilled local seafood.
Dreams Palm Beach Punta Cana
Dreams Palm Beach’s convenient u-shaped design, large meeting space and picturesque setting make it a perfect choice for groups and weddings. Plus, the resort’s Preferred Club category was enhanced a few years ago with modern suites and two private swimming pools.
Excellence Punta Cana
Surrounded by tropical palms, Excellence Punta Cana has a secluded feeling but there’s plenty to do, from treatments at the full-service spa to gambling at the casino. Dining options are impressive and include a pizzeria, lobster on the beach, and a tapas-style restaurant pairing small plates with wine. Guests can book a swim-up suite for direct access to the large pool.
Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda
We like the added perks at this resort, which sits in the Bahia Principe complex in Punta Cana. Highlights of Luxury Bahia Principe Esmeralda include easy beach access with exclusive drink service, a kids play area with access to the water park, and special amenities typically only available with VIP rates at the other Bahia Principe resorts.
Now Larimar Punta Cana
Now Larimar is a resort that appeals to everyone with activities ranging from water sports to an onsite bowling alley. It’s large, with spacious family rooms that can accommodate up to six people. Book Preferred Club rooms for perks like a private lounge, two exclusive pools and upgraded minibars.
Now Garden Punta Cana
This modern resort is smaller than its neighbor Now Larimar, but guests are able to use amenities at either resort. We love the inclusions at Now Garden — reservation-free dining, 24-hour room service, unlimited drinks at ten bars, pool and beach wait service, and a wide variety of activities and entertainment. There are also swim-up suites and balconies with outdoor tubs, which are always a favorite.
The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real
Luxury amenities typically only found at adults-only resorts are available for the whole family at The Reserve, a boutique resort located within the Paradisus Palma Real Resort on Bavaro Beach. This includes a family butler, personalized minibar with non-alcoholic drinks for the kids, and swim-out suites. There are plenty of activities for both kids and teens, and adults can enjoy the spa and romantic lounges.
Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino
Royalton Resorts strive to offer more than other all-inclusive resorts, and the newer Royalton Punta Cana Resort and Casino on Bavaro Beach is no exception. Picture luxury daybeds with canopies by the pool, suites with pillowtop Dreambeds and rain showers, and upscale foodie options like sushi, a steakhouse, and tapas bars.
Riu Palace Bavaro
We like the 24-hour all-inclusive service at Riu Resorts (and of course, the liquor dispensers in each room). But what really wows us at Riu Palace Bavaro are the guest rooms, including suites with whirlpools on the balconies and adult-only villas with an exclusive pool and swim-up bar. Plus, guests will never get bored of the lively nightlife and amenities at neighboring Riu Resorts.
Barcelo Bavaro Beach
This adults-only option in Barcelo’s resort complex has a hopping nightlife! Barcelo Bavaro Beach is a smaller resort, but the casino, spa, disco, and large pool keeps everyone entertained. Rooms are tropical with pillowtop beds and minibars. Book a superior sun deck room for a private sunbathing area with lounge chairs.
Club Med Punta Cana
Punta Cana’s original all-inclusive resort still charms visitors with theme nights, trapeze lessons and sailing school. Club Med Punta Cana continues to innovate as well, most recently with the addition of Zen Oasis – an adults-only pool, beach and lounge. A L’Occitane spa and new rooms with Smart TVs and rainfall showers bring modern flair to the resort.
