    Location 5.5 /10

    Located at the northernmost point of the Punta Cana, whose 25 mi of beaches on the south-east coast of the Dominican Republic between the Caribbean and the Atlantic make it the country's top tourist destination, the Agua Resort and Spa is built on the Uvero Alto beach. It is some 37 mi from the bustling city of Higuey (1 hour journey) and 3hrs 30mins by road from the capital, Santo Domingo. Punta Cana International Airport is 24 mi from the hotel. The journey takes about 1hr 30mins by car.

    Accommodation 9.00 /10

    Small single-storey buildings housing the 53 suites overlook the ocean. They have a large balcony or a handsome wooden terrace and are furnished with a round white stone table, two wooden chairs, a sofa and two wooden deckchairs with mattresses. They are spacious, and all have a king-size bed, a JVC plasma screen satellite television (25 channels), a DVD player, tea and coffee facilities, a well-stocked mini-bar, a telephone with a fax machine, free wireless internet access, a safe (included in the price) and individual air conditioning. Fitted with parquet flooring, with beautiful straw carpets, coconuts hanging from the walls, bamboo, and two naïve art paintings, all this combines to make the rooms immensely charming. The large bathroom has a designer double basin, a big bath looking over the sea and a separate open tropical shower, with the toilet and bidet in a separate room. Generous quantities of hospitality products are provided. A hair-dryer, slippers and soft bathrobes, a magnifying mirror, handkerchiefs, combs, cotton buds and toothbrush and shaving kits complete the set-up: basically, you can leave your toiletry bag at home! The beach is only a short stroll away, even from the buildings located furthest away. Room service is provided from 7:00 am till 10:00 pm.

    Overview 8.50 /10

    The Agua Resort and Spa consists of 53 suites spread over 22 single-floor bungalows with palm-leaf roofs, connected by wooden footbridges interspersed with coconut trees! Opened in 2007, the hotel's architecture and layout is top quality, set as it is in a pleasant tropical garden with an original river-shaped swimming pool running through it which is dotted with hydro-massage jets. Bordered by a beautiful strip of beach lapped by the clear waters of the Atlantic Ocean, the moderately sized hotel is a truly luxurious retreat where the beach is never more than a few dozen yards away. Privacy, calm and discretion are the most suitable words to describe this little gem, much loved by its wealthy guests. A spa, two tennis courts, a lovely shop and a hairdressing salon are available on site, and the porters can also organise a wide variety of sporting activities (pony trekking, cycling, golf, deep sea diving, deep sea fishing) and outings.

    Food and drink 8.50 /10

    All the meals are taken "a la carte" as a matter of course, except on Saturday evenings when an international buffet is prepared. In the daytime, from 11:30 am until 6:00 pm, the Caicu beach restaurant opposite the swimming pool serves snacks, salads and hot and cold drinks at its tables, or wherever you might be, whether that be by the poolside or on the beach. This restaurant can welcome up to 50 guests beneath its palapa roof and it offers beautiful sea views which can be enjoyed while you eat, with your feet practically in the water! The Areito restaurant, with its palm leaf roof and terrace, offers Dominican and Spanish fusion cuisine. Breakfast is served from 6:30 am until 10:30 am, and dinner from 7:00 pm until 10:30 pm.

    Beach 8.25 /10

    Unlike Bavaro Beach, Uvero Alto is not sheltered by a coral reef but is, to its credit, untouched, untrodden and quiet (motorised boating activities are prohibited). Once in the water, the buildings are hidden behind the trees and you feel like you are on a deserted beach. It is a superb beach of fine white sand shaded by tall coconut trees, with deckchairs and beach umbrellas scattered here and there among tall bushes; and you can find yourself a completely isolated spot in the midst of all the other guests: just in front of your suite, if you are lucky enough to be staying on the seafront, beside the swimming pool and the restaurants and even at a distance from the buildings. A shower and a fountain, which are just by the swimming pool, allow you to quickly rinse off. The wooden deckchairs are all equipped with thick mattresses and beach umbrellas, whether around the swimming pool or on the beach. Bath towels are available near the swimming pool if you need them, and should you forget to take one to the beach, a member of staff will happily bring one to you. Service, as might be expected, is top notch: a waiter regularly but discreetly does the rounds, even going as far as the beach to ensure that the needs of each and every guest are met. Calm and relaxation are the keywords to this hotel, there are no motorised water sports activities offered on site; however, the porter is able to arrange water skiing, scuba diving or deep sea fishing at a centre a few miles away. We are nevertheless disappointed by the lack of water activities on offer: only kayaking and sailing are freely available to guests.

    To know

    The Agua Resort and Spa is hidden away in a part of the region which is still relatively wild, making it an ideal place ensuring peace and quiet for its guests. Moreover, cars are not even allowed on the hotel site. A place which is reached after a long drive along a track, the Agua Resort and Spa is worth the effort. The Central Cordillera can be admired in the distance. It is one of the few moderately sized establishments operating at this level of luxury on the Punta Cana. A computer is provided in the library, with free internet access. You can relax in the games room which has a free pool table, board games and a big plasma screen television. The Yarari Spa, nestled under the palapa roof, uses Phytomer cosmetic products and has four massage parlours, sensation showers, a whirlpool bath, three whirlpool aquatic chairs, a heated swimming pool with hydro-massage jets and a spacious sauna.

    Accommodation tip

    The Agua Resort and Spa has three Dominican Villas, which are perfect for families or groups of friends. They offer three rooms with four-poster beds connected to a superbly decorated lounge by a path bordered with flowers, a private garden, a small private swimming pool, a hydro-massage shower and an outside bath!

      The Sirenis Cocotal is part of a large luxurious complex, installed in the wilderness in a remote region of the Dominican Republic and isolated from the resorts in Punta Cana. It is ideal for sun bathing and relaxation, yet clearly less convenient for visiting the island.

      Located on the isolated beach of Uvero Alto, in the far north of the seaside resort of Punta Cana, the Excellence Punta Cana is a luxury suite-only resort with an all-inclusive package, nestling in the heart of luxuriant vegetation. This hotel is recommended more for adults than for families, as it has a discotheque and casino, but no mini-club. It is an ideal destination for honeymooning couples. Its name does not flatter to deceive: there really is a certain excellence.

      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 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).
