    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.

    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 the five other restaurants guests have access to on-site and at the Puntacana Resort & Club). 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. And Leaders Club members you're in luck – as part of the Leading Hotels of the World, this property grants perks like welcome gifts and upgrades.

    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.

    Overlooking Bávaro beach from Punta Cana's popular resort strip, the IBEROSTAR Grand Hotel Bávaro earns high praise from previous guests, who claim they were treated like royalty at this stylish property. IBEROSTAR's suites feature marble bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs, LCD TVs and iPod docking stations. Outside the rooms, guests are greeted with poolside concierge services at the resort's three pools as well as a full-service spa. Those looking to be more active can take advantage of watersports like snorkeling and sailing or hit the links at the 18-hole IBEROSTAR Bávaro Golf Club. When dinnertime rolls around, IBEROSTAR touts four à la carte restaurants and a buffet. Overall, travelers were pleased with the selection, but some recent guests weren't satisifed with the cuisine's quality.

    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. Keep in mind, Leaders Club members can earn or redeem perks here. You'll find Casa De Campo about 40 miles southwest of Punta Cana in La Romana.

    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.

    Perched between Cap Cana Marina and the Caribbean Sea about 8 miles south of Punta Cana International Airport, Sanctuary Cap Cana by Playa Hotels and Resorts lives up to its name, providing a peaceful escape for travelers. Recently converted to an adults-only resort, guest rooms feature furnished balconies or terraces, flat-screen TVs, espresso machines and sitting areas. When you're not in your well-appointed digs, enjoy the expansive grounds: Sanctuary boasts five pools and five a la carte restaurants and bars to choose from. For dinner with a view, head to the Blue Marlin, which is raised on stilts over the sea. While Sanctuary Cap Cana is certainly a treat for the eyes and the taste buds, recent guests cite the excellent customer service as the main reason for planning a repeat visit.

    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.

    Fans of the Hard Rock name won't be disappointed by this Punta Cana installment. Presiding over the northern end of the Bávaro beach resort strip, the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana caters to guests looking for a rowdier vacation. Aspiring musicians shouldn't miss the opportunity to rock out with the hotel's Sound Of Your Stay experience, which includes Fender guitar "room service" (delivery of a guitar of your choice so that you can rock out like Bon Jovi). If you're looking to ride out a lucky streak, the 45,000-square-foot Hard Rock Casino houses 450 slot machines and 40 game tables. 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.

    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.

    Located near the Cap Cana Marina about 8 miles south of Punta Cana, this all-inclusive resort features its own private beach, as well as a free-form pool, a spa and seven restaurants and bars. But should you crave even more options (the on-site eateries received mixed reviews from diners), grab a bite at one of the four restaurants found at AlSol Tiara Cap Cana's neighboring sister property, AlSol Luxury Village (also covered in the all-inclusive rate). Back on the property, guests can participate in a variety of complimentary activities, ranging from bingo, Spanish lessons and wine tastings to karaoke and movie nights. Off-site excursions, like zip lining and four-wheeler tours, can also be arranged through the resort's concierge. Once you're ready for some shut-eye, retreat to your comfortable digs. Each of the 115 suites includes a flat-screen TV, a walk-in closet, a minibar replenished daily and a balcony or terrace with a hammock. But it's the friendly staff members (who have fun nicknames like Scooby-Doo, Super Sonic and Coca-Cola, according to travelers) and their top-notch service that keep guests coming back to this Dominican Republic resort.

    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 12 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.

    Couples looking for an all-inclusive romantic hideaway should consider Secrets Royal Beach. This stylish, adults-only resort pampers guests with its Unlimited-Luxury experience, which includes 24-hour room service and complimentary access to top-shelf liquors. Accommodations here earn high praise from previous guests for their colorful decor, furnished balconies, private Jacuzzis and Gilchrist & Soames bath products, though some visitors note inconsistent housekeeping. Outside the rooms, Secrets boasts a wide array of activities, from snorkeling to sailing, dance lessons to helicopter tours (most of which are included in your room rate). For a more relaxing day, lay a towel out on the nearby Bávaro beach sands, sip cocktails by the free-form pool or unwind with a couples massage at the 17,000-square-foot spa (not included). Secrets Royal Beach boasts five on-site restaurants, though some recent visitors were not overly fond of the food — you may have better luck at one of the nine eateries found at the nearby Now Larimer Punta Cana Resort.

Recent guests only complaints were problems with managers not responding to requests and inquiries.
