Critic Reviews



This luxury all-inclusive is a visual showstopper and has one of the country's best spas and also one of Punta Cana's best restaurants in Passion by Martin Berasategui. The average suite, with flat-screen TV, CD player, terrace, and semi-open marble bathroom with jet showers and a Jacuzzi for two, is spacious.

Fodor's Choice



One of the most consistently popular all-inclusives in Punta Cana, with palapa-shaded beach chairs under the palm trees on the pristine white sand beach, the Paradisus is part of the Mélia chain. The Spanish influence peeks through some of the decor – the airy loggias around a pond off reception, the decorative archways in the rooms, and the odd little wooden window screens between the bedroom and bathroom sections of the suites.


One of four Paradisus resorts in Punta Cana, the upscale, 554-room Palma Real has a romantic Caribbean setting and feels bigger than its sister properties, with a palatial lobby leading to a jaw-dropping courtyard, pool and beach area. The food and beverage offering here is a highlight; there are impressive international buffets as well as a la carte restaurants (one from a Michelin-starred chef) that will appeal to adults and honeymooners.

Travel + Leisure


The all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana is set on 30-mile-long Playa de Bávaro, on the island's eastern coast. ... Guests also enjoy plenty of perks: no greens fees at the Cocotal Golf & Country Club as well as snorkeling and scuba diving trips to the Dominican Republic's longest coral reef, just off the Punta Cana shore.
