    Location 7.5 /10

    Located at Cabeza de Toro, south of the tourist area of Punta Cana, the tourist epicentre of the country with its 25 mi of beaches, between the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, on the south-eastern coast of the Dominican Republic. The Grand Oasis Punta Cana is 37.5 mi from the lively town of Higuey (1 hour), and 3.5 hours from the capital, Santo Domingo, by road. The international airport of Punta Cana is 6 mi from the hotel (20 minutes).

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    The rooms at the Grand Oasis Punta Cana are spacious (323 sq ft) and well decorated, with wooden furniture and two pretty paintings. They have a tiled floor, king-size bed (or two queen size beds), satellite television (80 channels), a large safe (sufficiently spacious to hold a laptop computer), an iron and ironing board, air conditioning with a ceiling fan, a fridge/mini-bar with a tea and coffee-making kit, and a telephone. The small balcony is furnished. The bathroom has a bath with a grab-bar, flexible shower, clothesline and hair-dryer.
    The 67 master junior suites have a marble floor, double sink, separate toilet, a large separate shower, a large jacuzzi bath framed by two columns and a very romantic four-poster bed, and naif art paintings.

    Overview 7.75 /10

    The Grand Oasis Punta Cana is a member of the Oasis Hotels and Resorts group. It was built in 1999 and renovated in 2007, and consists of seven two-storey white buildings holding 423 rooms. The beautiful heart-shaped swimming pool includes a jacuzzi bath. It is 4.3 ft deep and open from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm. Organised entertainment takes place in the main swimming pool, which is bigger, has a waterside bar open from midday to midnight, and is decorated by a wooden bridge. Paella or fajitas are regularly on offer along the sun deck terrace, which has showers, deck chairs and palm leaf sunshades.

    Food and drink 7.50 /10

    The restaurants at the Grand Oasis Punta Cana are varied and good quality. The main buffet, which can seat 400 guests, is under a large pergola. Breakfast is served from 7.00 am to 10.30 am, lunch from 12.30 pm to 3.00 pm, and dinner from 6.30 pm to 10.00 pm. To help add variety to your enjoyment, there are four restaurants: Japanese (from 6.00 pm to 10.00 pm, and take note that an additional £10.70 is charged as this restaurant is not included in the package), Italian, seafood (which becomes a snack bar after 11.00 pm), and the tex mex American Grill on the first floor, by the beach. There are seven bars to keep your thirst quenched during your stay.

    Beach 7.50 /10

    The Grand Oasis Punta Cana beach is the Dominican dream: crystal clear water at 28°C, white sand and coconut trees; it is difficult not to be seduced by this lagoon sheltered behind a coral reef! It is 985 ft long, and has a number of yellow deck chairs (set back and arranged tidily, which is unusual in Punta Cana), cane leaf sunshades, showers, and to the right a water sports centre offering a considerable number of non-motorised activities from 8.00 am to 6.00 pm. Peace and quiet are guaranteed! Miles of unspoilt beach stretch out to each side. One area has been marked off for swimmers so that they do not get in the way of the water sports activities. You will also find a beach soccer pitch, the mini-club, and massage huts. For lunch, the beach snack bar serves barbecued food from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm a few feet from the water. In the evening, you may be tempted by a tex-mex American dinner.

    To know

    The Grand Oasis Punta Cana has a cinema that shows films every evening at 7.20 pm. When we were there, it was showing Ratatouille, the latest Walt Disney film! For cycling enthusiasts, mountain bikes are available free of charge. A beach party is organised every Thursday evening. Come and relax in the Kin Ha spa from 8.00 am to 8.00 pm. There is a hot pool, cold pool, 8 massage huts, a sauna, jacuzzi bath, a Turkish bath, and a beauty and hairdressing salon. When you add the casino, discotheque, conference hall, mini club, gym and golf course, you have a complete resort with something for everyone! Following the announcement of the failure of tour operator Marsans in 2010, the treatment of some of the clients at Oasis Punta Cana left a lot to be desired. Panic-stricken by the announcement of the group's liquidation, the hotel's management turned to the clients and asked them to pay upfront for their holiday! Their passports were confiscated, they were denied access to their rooms and to the restaurants and most slept in the lobby or in the gardens. Elder guests were forced to sleep on benches. This behaviour is of course totally unacceptable, shameful and irresponsible. It is for this reason that we are taking off two points from this hotel and strongly encourage readers to compare the full hotel offering in the Dominican Republic before reserving this establishment. If however, you are still interested in stay at the Oasis Punta Cana, make sure that your tour operator is in a solid financial position before making your reservation.

      The Royal Bavaro is an upmarket hotel ideally located on the beautiful Cabeza de Toro beach to the south of the tourist area of Punta Cana and away from the large resorts on Bavaro beach, each so similar to the last. The hotel shares the facilities of the neighbouring Catalonia Bavaro. This well-maintained hotel dedicated to the seaside offers a wide range of all-inclusive services and facilities in the surroundings of a beautiful tropical garden. Smaller and more relaxing than its neighbour, the Catalonia Bavaro, it is rather more suited to adult guests.

      Tortuga Bay: the name of this luxury boutique hotel immediately brings to mind the Caribbean, pirates, and the idea of escape. Branded a Leading Small Hotel of The World, this boutique hotel is a small enclave of serenity in the vast Punta Cana Resort and Club, a luxury resort located on the most beautiful beach on the east coast of the country, with 7 restaurants including 2 gourmet restaurants, a prestigious Six Senses spa, and three 18-hole golf courses, all situated in an ecological park of just under 1,500 acres that includes freshwater springs and rhinoceros iguanas.

      A veritable resort, this upmarket paradise certainly wins the award for luxury in Punta Cana! The exclusive section of the Paradisus Palma Real, The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real Resort is set back from the exquisite Bavaro Beach, 10 minutes away, but that's its only flaw (there has to be at least one). Highlights include the spacious, maximum comfort apartments, equipped with a kitchen and a terrace with a whirlpool bath, the superb spa, the fully equipped kids club, the free Internet access, and the gastronomy, with a special mention for the Japanese restaurant. Of course, guests also have access to the facilities at the Paradisus Palma Real.
