    Location 7.0 /10

    The hotel is situated directly on the beach of Arena Gorda, north of the tourist area of Punta Cana, the epicentre of tourism in the Dominican Republic, on the south-eastern coast with its 25 mi of fine sandy beach. It takes 35 minutes by car to get to the international airport in Punta Cana (22 mi) and three and a half hours to reach the capital. The town of Higüey and its famous historical basilica is 31 mi away (one hour by road), and the El Cortecito fishing village is 6 mi away.

    Accommodation 8.45 /10

    The guest rooms of the Majestic Elegance are spacious (50 m²) and decorated in a colonial style, adorned with a naive painting. With marble floors and wooden furniture, the rooms have a large plasma screen with satellite television (35 channels), a free digital safe spacious enough to store a laptop, air-conditioning, a mini-bar and a fridge, high-speed Internet access (extra), an iron and an ironing board and a large furnished balcony (with two armchairs, a round table and a clothes dryer), overlooking the garden or the pool but without any views of the sea. The rooms are also equipped with a luggage stand and a king-size four poster bed. A large hydro-massage bath stands in the middle of the room, embellished with two columns. The marble bathroom is spacious, clean and nicely decorated, with a double washbasin. It includes a bath, a large, separate tropical shower, tissues, a professional hair-dryer, a bathrobe, slippers and hospitality products. The toilet is separate from the bathroom and the rooms are also equipped with a telephone.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    Originally opened on 23 November 2008, the Majestic Elegance belongs to the Spanish hotel group Majestic Hotels and Resort. It has 597 bedrooms divided between seven three-storey buildings, nestled in a vast tropical garden scattered with palm trees and traveller's trees. With a lawn, flower-lined paths, pools and fountains, the layout is remarkable: guests who love nature will be very happy here! There is even an aviary with multi-coloured parrots like the ones that feature in pirate films! The resort has no fewer than five swimming pools! Open from 10:00am to 6:00pm and 1.50 m deep, the main pool extends for nearly 400m, towards the beach. Beautifully designed, it has fountains, waterfalls and islands with palm trees. Free introductions to scuba diving are organised here. As for the children, they have two round pools just for them. Several sun terraces are located next to one another, with deckchairs, palm leaf parasols and showers. If you forget to bring towels, don't worry, beach towels are provided by the hotel beside the pools. The swimming pool bar serves a variety of cocktails from 8:30am till 11:00pm and table tennis tables can be found dotted around the pool area. Located away from the animation and the pool area, the spa welcomes guests in a tranquil setting from 8:00am to 8:00pm. It is accessed via a path that winds through the mangroves. The spa is spread over two floors and consists of 10 treatment rooms, a thermal circuit, a sauna, a steam room, a whirlpool bath and a sensation shower. The decor is nice and the scent of the German Babor products is very pleasant. Another haven of tranquillity, the Elegance Club is an exclusive area reserved for adults, with superior rooms located in three buildings surrounding a pool reserved for the exclusive use of its guests. 1.50m deep and crossed by wooden bridges, the pool is shaped like a river and features a whirlpool bath and currents. Guests can relax on comfortable canopy mattresses. The Elegance Club has a private beach, its own reception area and an exclusive bar.

    Food and drink 8.45 /10

    The main meals are served at the gargantuan buffet which is copious, varied and delicious and includes show cooking, in an immense hall with a capacity of 400 guests and decorated with large naive paintings. You won't know what to choose from the selection of pizzas, pasta, salads, cold cuts, suckling pig, spare ribs and a thousand and one dishes from every corner of the world. For breakfast, a profusion of fresh tropical fruit is served either squeezed or chopped before your eyes and there is an infinite variety of cookies and home-made cakes and a farandole of pancakes, waffles, crêpes, cold meats, cheeses, sausages, hams, etc. Waiters move from table to table, serving tea, coffee and hot chocolate. Breakfast is served from 7:00am to 10:00am, lunch from 12:00pm to 3:00pm and dinner from 6:30pm to 10:00pm. A different theme is offered every day. If despite everything on offer, you tire of the buffet, remember that five speciality à la carte restaurants are also available: an Italian restaurant with a reproduction of the Mona Lisa (reserved for the privileged guests of the Elegance Club for breakfast and lunch, but open to all guests in the evening), a gourmet restaurant (prohibited to children under 12 years, tables must be booked in advance and proper attire is essential), the inevitable Japanese restaurant (sushi bar and teppanyaki) which is still popular in the resorts here, a steak house (set in a beautiful courtyard surrounded by arcades, in a Mexican colonial style with bulls' heads on the walls and cowhide stools), and finally a seafood restaurant (including rock lobster) in a ventilated palapa beside the beach. The seafood restaurant also serves snacks during the day from 12:00pm to 5:00pm. No less than 9 bars are available within the resort. On one of the paths, you can enjoy a break for a glass of the tropical punch served by a smiley Dominican lady in a straw hat, from her small boat used as a bar!

    Spa

    Situated away from the entertainment and not far from the swimming pools, the spa is a haven of peace open from 8:00am to 8:00pm. Access is via a walkway through the mangroves. On its two floors, guests will find 10 treatment rooms, a thermal circuit, a sauna, a Turkish bath, a Jacuzzi and sensation showers. The decoration is tasteful, and the German Babor brand cosmetic products give off some lovely scents.

    Beach 7.95 /10

    Arena Gorda beach is a wide strip of fine, soft, white sand, bordered by coconut trees that provide welcome shade. With 28°C clear turquoise blue waters, it is difficult not to fall in love with the place! However, there are more waves here than on Bavaro beach. Further out to sea, you can see a rusted ship that was wrecked on the coral reef during a cyclone. It is believed to have been a pirate ship! Guests can play beach football and beach volleyball in the shade of coconut trees, set back from the sea. From the water, the resort is completely hidden, only the coconut palms can be seen. In the evening, you can admire the superb sunset on the left, in the direction of the Central Cordillera. Massage cabins with palm leaf roofs are spread along the beach which is also equipped with plastic deckchairs, cane leaf parasols and showers. The water sports centre has a great number of activities on offer from 8:00am to 5:00pm and an area has been marked out for bathers to give them a separate area from these activities. The beach is supervised and a flag indicates the safety level for swimming. The beach bar serves snacks during the day.

    To know

    Mass is celebrated in the resort's chapel every Sunday and there is also an area available for wedding ceremonies. Shows are performed in the immense amphitheatre with a capacity of 500 people. A second resort of the Majestic group, the Majestic Colonial, is located right beside this complex. You can purchase lots of items such as souvenirs, stamps, postcards, naive art paintings, bottles of rum, cigar boxes and jewellery. Chess enthusiasts can play on either a giant or a normal-sized board, and other board games, table tennis, table football and pool can be played in an outdoor area that is filled with the sound of 1980s music. Frequented by the guests of the two adjoining Majestic resorts (the Colonial and Elegance), Caribbean street is home to shops, restaurants, a casino, a nightclub, and a great children's club: dominated by a papier-maché castle that looks like something straight out of Disneyland, it will delight children with its swimming pool equipped with water slides. It also includes video games, a ball pool and a theatre with a jungle theme. However, it is a shame that the establishment is so far from the beach. For those who like sports, a fitness room with the latest equipment is available and there are tennis and basketball courts and even a baseball pitch on site! This resort welcomes a primarily North American clientele (U.S. and Canada) with a few Europeans (French, German and Spanish mainly). The conference room, available to guests of both resorts, can accommodate up to 1000 people.
