Punta Cana, or what I like to call, Little Miami is the charm of the Dominican Republic. It is a land of white sand beaches and lavish all-inclusive resorts. You can estimate its popularity from the fact that it’s the most visited city in the Caribbean, welcoming most of the DR tourists. And like Miami expect to be welcomed with inflated fares, whether you visit in the peak season or tourist off-season. Now if you are single, hotels in Punta Cana are not the best idea. They are not very welcoming to guest, particularly natives and it will cost you a pretty penny to have that guest join you.
In this article, I will make things a bit easier for you by mentioning the six best hotels in Punta Cana. These range from lavish all-inclusive to even more luxury additions, so be sure to read the article until the end.

2. Tortuga Bay Punta Cana Resort 7 Club
This one is for the fans of the fashion icon Oscar de la Renta, as he was the one who designed the entire property of Tortuga Bay. It features 30 rooms and is known to be way similar in aesthetics to the fashion icon’s house.
Here, I enjoyed a posh and comfortable stay equipped with amenities of all kinds, including free Wi-Fi, well-decorated rooms with pleasing detailing, a TV with numerous channels, sound systems, iPad-controlled lights, and more.
3. Eden Roc Cap Cana
It’s a boutique hotel with four restaurants and a private beach club. Eden Roc is located in Cap Cana – one of the best areas in Punta Cana. It boasts 65 suites with free Wi-Fi, high ceilings, and a private terrace or balcony. Some top-tier suites even come equipped with a private pool!
During my stay, I loved to unwind while enjoying soothing spa treatments at the Eden Roc Wellness & Spa. After spending a tiring day in water-based activities and sightseeing, that’s the only thing one needs. There is also a club, namely Eden Roc Beach Club, a BBQ area, a beach bar, and more.

5. Casa de Campo Resort & Villas
Ok, here comes another lavish addition to my list, Casa de Campo Resort & Villas! It’s a 7000-acre property that is quite different from other resorts, as it’s not set on the beach. Instead, it offers an array of on-site pursuits. The property features a world-class 18-hole golf course. Guests can also partake in sports like tennis, kayaking, horseback riding, sailing, and more.
The resort’s spacious rooms have mini bars, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, Free Wi-Fi access, private balcony or terraces, and more.
