How it Ranks: Tortuga Bay ranks #1 out of 122 Punta Cana Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the Caribbean.

Our Take: Sitting between Cap Cana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the Caribbean coast, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with high-end preferences. Not many resorts can advertise spacious villas designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Guests rave about the food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo (as well as at Tortuga Bay's seven other restaurants). And 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.
