    Sitting between Cap Cana Marina and Punta Cana International Airport along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, Tortuga Bay appeases travelers with luxurious amenities. Not many resorts can advertise spacious suites designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta. Aside from the stylish decor, accommodations also boast balconies or patios, Jacuzzis, walk-in closets, kitchenettes and flat-screen TVs. Guests rave about the tasty (albeit expensive) food served on Oscar's signature tables at Bamboo Restaurant (as well as at the five other eateries visitors have access to on-site and within the larger Puntacana Resort & Club complex). But that's not the only name you'll recognize. Avid golfers will likely 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 travelers like most about this Leading Hotels of the World property is how different it feels from other Punta Cana resorts. Many vacationers say that the 1,500-acre reserve – maintained by the resort's ecological foundation – is a refreshing break from the overcrowded Bávaro beach hotel scene. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – this property grants perks like suite upgrades to rewards program participants.

    Eden Roc at Cap Cana prides itself on offering secluded luxury. Tucked inside Cap Cana, one of Punta Cana's most exclusive communities, this Relais & Châteaux outpost offers a long list of sumptuous amenities. Each of the resort's 62 suites features a private pool or ocean views from a private balcony or terrace, high ceilings, complimentary Wi-Fi access and a Nespresso machine. Although past vacationers appreciated the accommodations' spacious layouts, some encountered malfunctioning suite amenities or broken fixtures. Outside the suites, travelers can unwind with a treatment at Solaya Spa or enjoy the Eden Roc Beach Club, a private facility that touts a palm-shaded pool, a barbecue area and a beach bar. For more action, families can visit the children's pool or drop their little ones off at the Koko Kid's Club for games, crafts and more. When it's time to eat, vacationers can head to one of three restaurants. Suite rates cover daily breakfast at Mediterraneo restaurant or BLUE Grill + Bar, and a third eatery, La Palapa, is also available for fresh seafood by the Caribbean Sea.

    Overlooking Bávaro Beach from Punta Cana's popular resort strip, the adults-only, all-inclusive Iberostar Grand Bávaro earns high praise from previous guests, who claim they were treated like royalty at this stylish property. This Grupo Iberostar outpost's suites offer marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, free Wi-Fi access and 24-hour room, concierge and butler services. However, some past vacationers said the accommodations lack space and feature thin walls, so light sleepers may want to request a suite away from the property's nightclub. Additional on-site amenities include an 18-hole golf course, two fitness centers, an archery range and tennis and volleyball courts. For a more leisurely vacation, visitors can unwind at the full-service spa, lounge on the beach or go for a dip in one of two pools. When dinnertime rolls around, the resort touts seven restaurants, including two buffets and five a la carte eateries that serve everything from Italian fare to fresh seafood to teppanyaki-style Japanese cuisine. Overall, recent travelers were pleased with the selection, especially at the two buffet restaurants.

    Perched between Cap Cana Marina and the Caribbean Sea, less than 9 miles southwest of Punta Cana International Airport, Sanctuary Cap Cana lives up to its name, providing a peaceful escape for travelers. At this adults-only, all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana, you'll find suites outfitted with furnished balconies or terraces, flat-screen TVs, espresso machines and silk bathrobes. When you're not in your well-appointed digs, enjoy the expansive grounds: Sanctuary Cap Cana boasts five pools and five restaurants (plus an additional six eateries in the adjacent food-focused Sanctuary Town facility). For dinner with a view, head to Blue Marlin, which is raised on stilts over the sea. While Sanctuary Cap Cana is certainly a treat for the eyes and taste buds, recent guests cited the excellent customer service as the main reason for planning a repeat visit. However, some warned that beach bums may be disappointed with the on-site beach: The tiny stretch of sand is filled with seaweed.

    This 7,000-acre La Romana resort (about 45 miles southwest of downtown Punta Cana) is not set on the beach like other Dominican Republic retreats, but Casa de Campo makes up for it with an array of on-site pursuits. The property features three Pete Dye-designed, 18-hole golf courses, including the challenging and 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 treatments through the spa or go for a dip in the pool. Meanwhile, the resort's spacious rooms and suites come equipped with 42-inch flat-screen TVs, minibars, private balconies or terraces, free Wi-Fi access 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 10 bedrooms, full kitchens and living areas. Plus, all accommodations offer loaner golf carts for getting around the property. When it comes to dining, the resort houses eight restaurants that dish out everything from Italian-inspired fare to Mexican street food. Most previous visitors described their stays as relaxing and the cuisine as tasty. However, some encountered dated or malfunctioning room amenities. Keep in mind, this property is part of The Leading Hotels of the World family, so Leaders Club members receive complimentary perks like daily breakfast and room upgrades during their stays.

    Families, listen up: This resort was made for you. The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real 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 are 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, including candle-, cocktail-, sushi- and even cigar-making courses. Plus, the property hosts live music in the evenings and a variety of dance and fitness classes. There is also the Yhi Spa, which covers more than 20,000 square feet of space. For meals, vacationers have their pick of six restaurants that serve everything from pizzas to poolside tapas to fresh seafood. But keep in mind, meals and drinks from the adults-only Passion by Martín Berasategui cost extra. Overall, past travelers praised the amount of food available, although some said menu options are limited and underwhelming at times. Others warned that the customer service is hit or miss and that accommodations here are dated. Standard suites feature neutral color schemes and come equipped with flat-screen TVs, balconies with hydromassage tubs, stocked minibars and free Wi-Fi access. Family Conciege suites boast extras like kid-sized bathrobes and slippers, evening milk and cookies, baby amenities, video game consoles (upon request) and bath toys.

    Sitting roughly 15 miles northwest of the heart of Punta Cana's busy Bávaro resort strip, Zoëtry Agua Punta Cana (a Dominican Republic property that's part of the AMResorts family) earns two thumbs up from recent honeymooners. Previous guests said that Zoëtry's secluded beach location paints the scene for a luxurious post-nuptial getaway. The resort's 96 suites and villas reside beneath thatched roofs and feature deep soaking tubs, private balconies or terraces and 24-hour concierge service as part of Zoëtry's Endless Privileges all-inclusive experience. With this program, you can also partake in complimentary extras like daily spa treatments, horseback riding excursions and unlimited cocktails. (Past travelers especially appreciated the free bottle of rum at check-in.) When you're not lounging by one of two infinity pools or at the beach, take a wine-tasting, painting or a cigar-rolling class before indulging in a romantic meal for two at one of four a la carte restaurants. Although most former diners enjoyed the property's cuisine, some cautioned that the service can be hit or miss.

If you need a break from the sand, you'll have your pick of four pools, including an infinity-edge pool, a bi-level pool and two pools reserved exclusively for xhale club guests.

Recent guests raved about the resort's amenities and spacious, swanky digs – complete with hot tubs and private balconies – but some said the staff could work harder to provide a VIP experience.

    Located just south of Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa right on the beach on the Dominican Republic's eastern coast, CHIC by Royalton Luxury Resorts offers all of the amenities you could want at an all-inclusive, adults-only resort. Included in its All-In Luxury experience are perks like 24-hour room service, nonmotorized water sports equipment use, themed pool and beach parties, Wi-Fi access and unlimited meals and drinks at the property's 10 bars and eateries. Though most of the restaurants received high praise from diners (especially the steakhouse fare served at Hunter and the Italian offerings featured at Vespa), some visitors suggest skipping the buffet at Elements, noting that it was their least favorite option. Once you're ready to enjoy some sunshine, sink your toes into the sand at the property's beach or explore Punta Cana on a tour or excursion (for a fee). When you're ready to retire for the evening, accommodations boast rain showers, flat-screen satellite TVs and personal liquor dispensers. For even more luxury, upgrade to a Diamond Club suite, which comes with butler service, access to an exclusive beach area, an upgraded room service menu and complimentary access to the property's Mermaid Pool, a glass-walled pool that features its own mermaid.
