All-Inclusive Resort Along Caribbean Sea
On the easternmost tip of the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana entices visitors with miles of white, sandy beaches virtually untouched by tourists. It’s part of la Costa del Coco, or the Coconut Coast, a string of sunny locales along the Caribbean Sea. Within this laid-back community lies the Spanish Colonial–style Sanctuary Cap Cana resort, which is made up of low-lying buildings with red tiled roofs, marble floors, and arched pillars. There are five swimming pools, including one filled with saltwater, all surrounded by palm trees and thatched-roof palapas. This getaway includes:
- Breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks daily
- Unlimited beer, top-shelf liquor, fruit juice, and soft drinks
- In-suite mini bar stocked daily with soft drinks, bottled water, and domestic beer
- 24-hour room service available for an additional cost
- Pool and beach wait service
- Welcome cocktail and cool towel
- All taxes and fees
You can choose from five onsite restaurants with offerings ranging from fresh seafood, pan-Asian fusion, and grilled steaks. At night, you can divide your time among the property’s lounges, which include a piano bar and an oceanfront watering hole. Spacious junior suites are equipped with flat-screen TVs, in-suite climate control, and mini bars.
Play a round on one of the two nearby Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses—one of them, Punta Espada, has garnered a slew of awards and special recognitions. The 13th hole is one of a kind, requiring a 249-yard shot over water to a peninsular green jutting into the Caribbean Sea.
Highlights of Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
- A “beautiful island paradise”: That’s how Christopher Columbus described what we now know as the Dominican Republic when he landed here more than five centuries ago.
- The white sand coast of Punta Cana, located on the island’s easternmost tip, stretches for more than 20 miles and is dotted with coconut palms, chaise longues, laid-back bars, and glitzy resorts.
- Playa El Cortecito harks back to earlier times. Brightly colored, thatched-roof shacks line the beach, and local fishermen still bring their boats to shore each afternoon with the day’s catch.
