Hotels in Punta Cana

In a region highly concentrated with all-inclusive resorts, the best hotels in Punta Cana separate themselves from the pack with A-list, over-the-top accommodations.

The Puntacana Resort and Golf Club is one of the pioneering hotels in Punta Cana, built more than 40 years ago, and it has since grown from a 10-villa establishment to one that includes a full-service spa, a marina, nine restaurants and a 1,500-acre nature preserve. Designed on an even larger scale, the 30,000-acre Cap Cana resort resembles a village with its own shops, plazas and an outdoor amphitheater. Choose from 298 seaside suites and villas, take a dip in a private lagoon and play around at the Jack Nicklaus-designed tournament golf course. Another of the best hotels in Punta Cana, Club Med’s Punta Cana outpost boasts more than 500 beachside bungalows with private bungalows and picturesque views. Offering activities for family members of all ages, the resort hosts programs such as flying trapeze and circus lessons, as well as excursions for snorkeling horseback riding and more.

For quainter accommodations, opt for Punta Cana hotels like the boutique Sivory Punta Cana. Set on 11 romantic, secluded acres in terracotta villas, suites feature banks of floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the water. Guests can dine at three on-site restaurants and sample from a collective wine list that’s 8,000 bottles strong.
