    Tortuga Bay boasts spacious suites designed by fashion icon Oscar de la Renta, just one of the property's many draws. 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 six other eateries within the Puntacana Resort & Club complex). But Oscar de la Renta isn't the only name guests will 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. The resort sits along the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, about 4 miles from Punta Cana International Airport. 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.

    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 three 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.

When it’s time to grub down, guests will no doubt enjoy the seven different dining options on-site, which range from a Brazilian grill to Japanese.  Those with kids in tow definitely appreciate all the family-friendly amenities available and say the staff were next to perfect in helping keep everybody happy and entertained. You can find the Royalton Bavaro Resort & Spa about 15 miles northeast of Punta Cana.

    Unlike other Club Med properties, this location caters more to families than to couples. Sprawling across white sands just south of Punta Cana's international airport, Club Med's bright white buildings feature 631 rooms and suites with neutral color schemes, colorful accent pieces and amenities like wall-mounted flat-screen TVs, beach towels, showers and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Despite the spacious layouts, some guests say the accommodations could use a facelift. While the kids are busy at one of the resorts four kids clubs, parents can unwind by one of four pools (including one reserved exclusively for Zen Oasis guests) or with a massage at the Club Med Spa by L'Occitane. When family play time rolls around, sign up for trapeze or archery lessons, play tennis or take to the seas on complimentary kayaks or paddleboards. But remember, this all-inclusive property's rates do not cover select activities, such as kitesurfing, tubing and scuba diving. After a long day, sit down to family dinner at one of three on-site restaurants: buffet-style Hispaniola and Samana and the seafood-focused Indigo Beach Lounge. Travelers praise all three eateries, although some warn that service can be slow at times.
