Hotel at a Glance: Ocean El Faro

At the Ocean El Faro, guests can look out from an ocean-view terrace at over 40 miles of white, sandy beaches in Punta Cana. While the kids splash and play in the on-site water park, adults relax at the Despacio Spa or lounge in the exclusive 18-and-over area with calming stream pools. Coming together, families compete at the on-site bowling alley or catch a show at the resort’s theater. Between taking a dip in the two expansive swimming pools and dining at beach-side restaurants, guests relax in luxury at this 5-star oasis of a resort.

  • Dine and drink at the ten restaurants and thirteen bars on the premises.
  • Grab a scoop of ice cream at the on-site ice cream bar.
  • Take a dip in one of the four swimming pools, including a flowing stream pool.
  • Serve a game on one of the two tennis courts or the multi-sports court.

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Miles of White-Sand Beaches

When Christopher Columbus landed on the Dominican Republic more than five centuries ago, he described it as “a beautiful island paradise.” Punta Cana, located on the island’s easternmost tip, lays legitimate claim to that description. The coast stretches for more than 20 miles and is dotted with coconut palms, chaise lounges, and laid-back bars. Glitzy resorts feature prominently along the shoreline, but Playa El Cortecito, a short drive up the coast, harks back to earlier times. Brightly colored thatched-roof shacks line the beach, and local fishermen bring their boats to shore each afternoon with the day’s catch.

The resort was so beautiful. The staff is incredibly polite and helpful. The rooms, pools, and premises are well kept and clean. The food is pretty good. The beach was closed off because of the amount of algae that was present in the water. We were told this is common for this time of the year. activities were limited because of COVID, but they made every effort to make it enjoyable.

We originally booked for 7 nights, but after 2 days we extended our stay for 3 additional nights. We loved this resort. We had a swim-up suite in the privilege section. Our butler, Raphael was fantastic and made our stay so easy. The amenities are very nice. Everything is well kept. The only fault we would find is in the food. The Italian Restaurant was our favorite. All others were just ok.

They upgraded us to a Privileged Suite because check in took awhile. The staff are really great. There are multiple themed restaurants with lots of food. You’ll be approached to join H10Premium. You’ll receive a 20 min spa massage coupon which you can use to upgrade for a different service. The beach is great! Our only regret is not bringing more people with us! We are definitely returning soon!

There is a lot to be improved as far as costumer service. Long waiting time to order any food. I needed some ice for my foot (the hammock broke when I was seating on it), it took 6 phone calls and 4 hours to get the ice. Staff don’t know what’s going on, I called internationally 5 times to ask how much it would cost for 2 children and nobody knew the answer, there they told me 900$ for 3 nights
