Amy Adejokun Section editor

This is an unusual place for Punta Cana, where most of the resorts that take over the area of Bavaro are giant and overflowing with facilities. The Stanza Mare is a friendly-sized aparthotel standing along the peaceful little beach of Los Corales. The facilities are limited to a large swimming pool in the middle of a tropical garden and an à la carte restaurant. You will have plenty of room in one of the vast apartments equipped with a kitchen.

    Location 7.25 /10

    The Stanza Mare faces the beach of Los Corales, which is a particularly quiet spot that constitutes part of the long and beautiful Bavaro beach. Punta Cana, the country's tourist epicentre, with its 25 mi of beaches between the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean, is on the Dominican Republic's southeast coast. It is just over 12 mi from the bustling city of Higüey (30min) and 3 and a half hours by car from the capital, Santo Domingo. The Punta Cana international airport is around 13 mi away to the south of the hotel (20min).

    Accommodation 7.75 /10

    This really is the Stanza Mare's strong point. The rooms are spacious apartments equipped with a sitting room and a kitchen, and a large terrace furnished with wooden deckchairs, 4 regular chairs, and a round table, with, for the most part, spectacular views of the heavenly Bavaro beach. Fitted with white tile flooring, the rooms each have three bedrooms (one with a king size bed, one with two queen size beds, and one with a single bed) with their own separate bathrooms (with a toilet, hospitality products, a small bathtub or a shower, tissues and a hair-dryer). The sitting room has been decorated with pretty, local paintings, and livened up with an orchid and a comfortable leather sofa accompanied by wooden furniture (a coffee table, a large 6-person rectangular dining table, and an armchair with a cushion). The satellite television (with 96 channels) with an integrated DVD player can be turned towards the sitting room or the bedroom, depending on where you want to watch your programme! As for the kitchen, it is has 4 gas hobs, a microwave, a toaster, a fridge, a freezer, a sink, a coffee machine, dishes, cutlery, etc. In short, you'll have everything you need to prepare the most delicious of feasts! In terms of amenities, all of the apartments are air-conditioned (remote controlled) and have a ceiling fan, free Wi-Fi, and an iron and an ironing board plus a free digital code safe which is large enough to fit a laptop. Beach towels are provided directly in the rooms.

    Overview 7.00 /10

    Opened in 2008, the Stanza Mare consists of 12 white 2-storey buildings with green shutters and red tile roofs, which really makes for a charming style. In total, there are 108 spacious apartments equipped with a kitchen. You will be able to wind down in a peaceful ambiance (with no animation) in the vast, bean-shaped lagoon swimming pool, which is 1m40 deep and spanned by a wooden bridge. Guests can also get towels here for free. Children have access to a second decent-sized pool. Showers and deckchairs are also available here. The pleasant gardens have been planted with coconut trees and boast little red walkways dotted with flowers. The hotel's bar-restaurant is right beside the swimming pool.

    Food and drink 7.00 /10

    Contrary to most of the establishments in Punta Cana, the Stanza Mare offers neither an all-inclusive nor a buffet formula. Meals are taken at the small restaurant by the pool, the Toscana, which offers non-stop à la carte service from 9:00am to 11:00pm. It can seat up to 44 guests at a time. The ashtrays are original, filled with white sand and sea shells. The menu offers local and international cuisine: fried calamari, soup of the day, the classic Caesar salad, as well as a wide selection of pastas, meat, fish, and even lobster! The Toscana also serves as the pool bar, with plenty of drinks and cocktails on the menu.

    Beach 7.75 /10

    Protected by a coral reef, Bavaro beach is truly exceptional. A turquoise blue lagoon, clear 28°C water, fine, soft sand as white as flour, and a few coconut trees serving as natural parasols; it is difficult not to be seduced by this beach, over half a mile long! The beach in front of the Stanza Mare is called Los Corales and is different from the other large hotels due to its calm and quiet surroundings. You won't find deckchairs which have already been taken haphazardly set up all over the place, but instead just a few plastic ones in a welcoming, calm setting. In addition to cane leaf parasols, the Uva, a beautiful local fruit tree, provides some much-needed shade. You can play beach volleyball here. You'll also find showers and a sort of large wooden bunk bed with a double mattress on both levels, which allow you to take advantage of the view while completely relaxed! The area is not supervised (besides a security guard in his little hut in front of the hotel) but a swimming area is marked out by buoys. The only thing that really disrupts the peacefulness of this spot is the helicopters flying about the area.

    To know

    A member of the Dominican Coral Hotels group, the Stanza Mare benefits from its Comfort seal of approval (with a hotel service). The Stanza Mare is not a resort but an aparthotel, or to be even more precise, a condo-hotel, used as both a condominium and a hotel. Wi-Fi access is free throughout the entire establishment and room service is available from 9:00am to 11:00pm. There are no special facilities for guests with reduced mobility and there is nothing extra for children. Neither are there any entertainment or sports facilities. Each apartment has its own private parking spot which can be used free of charge.

Upmarket restaurant services and luxury decor set the tone of this superb all-inclusive hotel built alongside the magnificent Arena Gorda beach.

      The VIK Hotel Cayena Beach is the calm and exclusive part of the VIK Hotel Arena Blanca resort. Not too big but not too small, this haven of tranquillity, with 3 bars and a restaurant, is a genuine luxury in a region where each resort is bigger than the next. Guests at this friendly sized 24/7 all-inclusive resort have access to the facilities and services at the neighbouring Arena Blanca hotel, which include a spa, a gym, a casino, sports facilities, a kids club and an amphitheatre. In short, this is a small hotel when compared to the others in Punta Cana.

      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.
