Neither too good nor too bad, the Club Med Punta Cana is certainly not excessive. Simplicity and kindness will make you feel at home right away.

    Location 9.0 /10

    Located in Punta Cana, the tourist epicentre in the country with its 25 miles of beach, encircled by the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the west coast of the Dominican Republic, the Club Med hotel is some 29 miles from the bustling town of Higuey (1 hour) and a three hour and a quarter drive from Santo Domingo, the capital town of the Dominican Republic. The international airport in Punta Cana is 6 miles from the hotel (10 minutes), and the international airport of Santo Domingo, Las Americas, is three hours away.

    Accommodation 8.00 /10

    The 519 rooms of the Club Med, located in 2-storey buildings, are relatively spacious and tastefully decorated, combining colonial inspiration and more contemporary notes. The family lodgings (2 rooms) have a king size bed, 2 children's beds, a bathroom with a shower and welcome products, air conditioning, a hair dryer, telephone, radio / CD, a mini - refrigerator and a coffee machine, satellite television, an ironing kit and a safe. Comfort certainly, not luxury.

    Overview 8.50 /10

    It is simple. At the Club Med in Punta Cana, you will feel great immediately. The main reason is that it is welcoming. This is essential for a hotel, it is evident and yet in Punta Cana, it is extremely rare. Here, no size, no pretension, but quality equipment and a well managed organisation. A total of 25 colourful buildings, in pink ochre and pastel blue, a swimming pool overlooking the sea, a flying trapeze, a large amphitheatre, two buffets, everything seems perfectly arranged and measured. Neither too little nor too much. It is a pity there is a lack of tropical vegetation. The Village was completely renovated in winter 2001 and redecorated by Estrella Salietti, a famous designer of Spanish origin who was inspired by the Caribbean colours. The result is astonishing: a true blending of cultures, namely Mediterranean, Caribbean and European with its colours of fuchsia, turquoise, white (the signature colour of the Club) and various shades of wood. The local materials are privileged, including the coralline, straw and wood. Tennis enthusiasts will not be disappointed: the Club Med could almost host a Grand Chelem tournament, with its 14 well-equipped and maintained tennis courts!

    Food and drink 8.25 /10

    Both buffets are air-conditioned, the Samana and the Hispaniola, located at the end of the Village, facing the sea, and offer a very varied cuisine and high quality. At least at the Club Med, the dishes have taste, which is not true in all other hotels in Punta Cana. Here, there are no restaurants serving a la carte or gourmet restaurants, but there is definitely a special atmosphere... you will find the ambiance of old markets in Old Europe (Spain, France, Italy). Two bars offer a full range of brand name beverages and sweets to enjoy during the day and evening, in moderation.

    Beach 8.25 /10

    The Club Med's beach is truly exceptional. With its turquoise blue and transparent waters, white sand and coconut trees, it is difficult not to be seduced! Amid all this serenity, the hotel hosts a sailing club, which offers a wide range of activities.

    To know

    This 3* Village, built in 1982 and completely renovated in 2000, has a unique feature: the lobby - you can see the swimming pool and the sea! With its exemplary reception and organised activities, structure on a human scale, privileged location away from the beach of Bavaro (the bastion of resorts), the Club Med is one of 100% French-speaking villages in the Dominican Republic.
    A special feature: its circus school for children.
    We recommend it for a seaside holiday with your family. A great novelty, the Club Med Baby Welcome offers comfortable facilities in the rooms and adaptable restaurant services (without supervision). The Village welcomes children with the supervision at the Petit Club Med (for ages 2 to 4), the Mini Club Med (4 to 11 year-olds) and the Club Med Passworld "The Ramp". A new concept for children aged 14-17 years who are on a family holiday. A place and activities that are devoted to them 24 hours a day. Sports tournaments, karaoke nights, film screenings and board sports demonstrations are organised by the entertainers.

      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.

      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.

      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.
