Sitting between the Puntacana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the Caribbean coast, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with luxurious amenities. Not many resorts can advertise spacious villas designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Aside from the stylish decor, accommodations also boast Jacuzzis, kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs. Guests rave about the food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo (as well as at Tortuga Bay's three other restaurants). But that's not the only name you'll recognize. Avid golfers will jump at the chance to play one or both of Tortuga Bay's courses, designed by Tom Fazio and P.B. Dye. Meanwhile, relaxation-seekers can take advantage of the Six Senses Spa, which features a full menu of massages and body scrubs. But what guests liked the most about Tortuga Bay was how different it felt from other Punta Cana properties. Many say that the 1,500-acre reserve — maintained by the resort's ecological foundation — was a refreshing break from the overcrowded Bávaro beach hotel scene. more

Sitting roughly 2 miles northwest of Punta Cana's busy Bávaro resort strip, Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana (a member of the AmResorts family) earns two thumbs up from recent honeymooners. Sitting about 12 miles north from Punta Cana International Airport, previous guests say that Zoëtry's secluded location along the sands of Uvero Alto Beach paints the scene for a luxurious post-nuptial getaway. The resort's 96 suites sit beneath thatched roofs and feature deep soaking tubs, private terraces and 24-hour concierge service as part of Zoëtry's Endless Privileges experience. With this program, guests can also partake in complimentary extras like daily spa treatments, horseback riding excursions and unlimited cocktails (guests especially appreciated the free bottle of rum at check-in). When you're not lounging by the pool or at the beach, take a wine-tasting or a cigar-rolling class before indulging in a romantic meal for two at one of four à-la-carte restaurants. more

Eden Roc at Cap Cana prides itself on secluded luxury. Tucked inside Cap Cana, one of the Dominican Republic's most exclusive communities, this Relais & Châteaux outpost offers a long list of sumptuous amenities. Each of the resort's 34 suites features a private pool, vaulted ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and complimentary use of a golf cart (a traveler favorite). Every Eden Roc guest also has access to the Eden Roc Beach Club — a private facility that touts a palm-shaded pool, a barbecue area and a beach bar. Recent guests say a visit to the beach club is a relaxing way to spend an afternoon thanks to the attentive service and ample amount of beach chairs and umbrellas. Need a break from the surf? Head to Punta Espada, one of three Jack Nicklaus-designed golf courses in Cap Cana, situated a little more than a mile from the resort. After working up an appetite, sit down for a gourmet meal four eateries — breakfast at Mediterraneo is included in your room rate, but recent visitors suggest paying extra for the seafood at La Palapa. more

This 7,000-acre resort is not set on the beach like other Dominican Republic retreats (it's about a 10- to 15-minute ride by golf cart), but Casa de Campo makes up for it with an array of on-site pursuits. Casa de Campo's campus features three Pete Dye-designed 18-hole golf courses, including the challenging, highly acclaimed Teeth of the Dog course. If you're not much of a golfer, other daytime activities abound, including tennis, horseback riding, clay shooting and water sports like kayaking and sailing. Those interested in some R&R can book outdoor or indoor spa services or go for a dip in the pool. Meanwhile, the hotel's spacious rooms have 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, walk-in closets and bathrooms with glass-enclosed showers and separate tubs. And larger groups can choose to book one of the property's villas, which boast three to seven bedrooms, full kitchens and living areas. When it comes to dining, the resort houses seven restaurants dishing out everything from Mediterranean cuisine to gourmet Italian meals. Most previous visitors describe their stays as relaxing and the staff members as accommodating. You'll find Casa De Campo about 40 miles southwest of Punta Cana in La Romana. more

This sprawling, adults-only getaway sits roughly 25 miles north of Punta Cana proper and nearly 20 miles north of its competitors along the Bávaro shoreline. Though getting here is a bit of a trek, once you arrive, you won't find many reasons to leave: The Excellence Punta Cana is an all-inclusive. The Excellence's suites cater to couples with king-size beds, whirlpool tubs and furnished balconies or patios. When you step outside your digs, take advantage of the on-site activities (some for an added fee) like beach volleyball, tennis and scuba lessons. Or, simply kick back and relax by one of two swimming pools, unwind with a treatment at the Miilé Spa, or find your rhythm at a dance class. The Excellence Punta Cana also features nine different restaurants that most recent guests said were above average. Visitors do warn that mosquitos are an issue, so it's a good idea to bring bug spray.  more

Families, listen up: This resort was made for you. The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real Resort in Punta Cana boasts that it was designed specifically for families. Not only do children stay for free at this all-inclusive property, but there is a Kids Zone, a family concierge and two family-friendly pools: one for advanced swimmers and a paddling pool for beginners. And that's not even the half of it. Typical activities range from face painting and movie nights to science workshops, magic shows and even mini Olympics competitions. But that doesn't mean adults are neglected. Parents can engage in workshops as well, which include candle, cocktail, sushi and even cigar-making courses. There's also live music in the evenings and a variety of dance and fitness classes, including yoga, Pilates and spinning. There is also the YHI Spa, which covers more than 20,000-square-feet of space. Guests also lauded the spacious guest rooms, which feature two flat-screen TVs, coffee makers, hydro massage tubs and terraces or balconies. But what stood out for many visitors was the exceptional customer service. Guests who didn't travel as a family recommended booking elsewhere if you want some peace and quiet, and urge future travelers to only drink bottled water to keep Montezuma's revenge at bay. more

The Hard Rock also offers relaxing amenities, including 13 pools and the Rock Spa; you can enjoy some peace and quiet while the little ones are busy at on-site arcade or with the hotel's Little Big Club. Recent guests rave about the hotel amenities and the spacious, swanky digs — complete with hot tubs and private balconies — but some mention that the staff could work harder to provide a VIP experience. more

The Paradisus Punta Cana Resort takes its Bávaro beach location seriously, with the surrounding landscape inspiring the resort's decor. The resort's public spaces are open and airy, constructed from local materials and brightened by indigenous flora. Suites are equipped with satellite TV, sofa-beds, and private balconies or terraces. Paradisus also encourages its visitors to enjoy the resort's setting: Enjoy unlimited green fees at the Cocotal Golf & Country Club, indulge in an all-natural treatment at Yhi Spa, relax by one of six swimming pools, or hit the Arena Blanca section of Bávaro beach for some snorkeling or volleyball. The resort's nine dining venues are just as diverse. Although some guests describe the fare as sub-par, they also say the quality of customer service more than makes up for this drawback — many report that the staff resort-wide was friendly and helpful. more
