The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

As the crystalline Caribbean sparkles under the sun, breathe in the crisp ocean air and gaze out towards the horizon before diving into the warm, beautiful surf at The Puntacana Hotel. On the vibrant Southeast coast of the Dominican Republic, set amidst sunny gardens, swaying palms, and irresistible beaches, your Caribbean escape awaits. Each luxurious room is crafted with the elegance of simplicity, with an open design allowing the warm sun and cool ocean breeze to drift throughout. Marble floors lead you past deeply plush beds, and into your stylish marble bathroom, while sliding glass doors take you right out to the beach. With amazing service, all the modern amenities, and the sheer natural beauty of the Caribbean and Dominican Republic just outside your door, enjoy each day to the fullest at The Puntacana Hotel.

As the cool surf warms with the sun, enjoy a tranquil horseback ride along the beach and listen as the waves gently wash ashore and the breeze blows through the palms. Later, find the perfect spot to spend your afternoon on the white sands, and soak in the sun before diving in to cool off. Enjoy an exciting kayaking adventure along the picturesque coast, or visit the Aquatic Center and sail out in a catamaran or aboard a stylish yacht. Venture out on an unforgettable scuba diving excursion, and dive down to stunning shipwrecks and brilliant coral reefs, and come face to face with the local sea life. In the evening hit the links for some amazing golf, and play the Corales course with six championship holes right on the sea, or the La Cana course with three individual nine-hole courses. That night, as the sunset creates an almost cinematic backdrop, sit down to dinner at one of the resort's gourmet restaurants and enjoy everything from Mediterranean and Italian cuisine to fine, aged steaks. At The Puntacana Hotel, discover the wonders of the Caribbean, and the true lap of luxury.

We met bartender Kenia and she is AWESOME! She makes the best drinks! Even more special, Kenia made us feel like family. I hope she's stilling employed at The Westin Puntacana Resort & Cana when we return next year.

Let’s start off by simply saying “Wow!”. I know it’s a repeat statement of most other posts, but this a 3 year old property, with all the amenities, services, professionalism and friendliness I’ve come to expect while staying at Westin properties…only this one is right on the beach with palm trees and wonderful ocean breeze. Before I get into more details, I would highly recommend this property to anyone. It’s not an all-inclusive so be prepared to pay for every drink and your food, but they’re both plentiful and good at the hotel. Definitely on our must-return-to list some day. Here are some tips and opinions from our recent family stay (two daughters 14 & 18) during March Break for 9 nights to help others planning their trip, and commend the staff working there. Prior to Arrival – Being a Platinum SPG Member, one of the customer service staff, Alexendra Cedeno, reached out to us the day before our arrival offering her help to make our stay a pleasant one. She arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport for $20. Never spend more than that going to/from the airport for 4 or less people. Alexandra was a great help throughout providing us with a very nice room upgrade right on the ocean front, top floor, end unit. Checking in – was a breeze. Alexandra met us at the desk and had drinks ready for all of us after a long day of travel. The open air lobby had a breathtaking welcoming view of the pool out to the beach area. They will take a deposit on your credit card for incidentals so don’t be surprised. Westin Food Options – every meal we had at the hotel (breakfast, lunch, dinner) was good to very good so we were very happy about that. If they ever have a “special buffet” night for dinner it’s worth it. They had a great Caribbean Buffet 2 nights, a Taco Bar another night, and a St. Patricks Day spread on the beach on Friday (Friday’s seem to be the night for their beach buffets which are definitely worth going to. They had a Peruvian one the night before we arrived). The Anani Restaurant has an outdoor and indoor seating, a good traditional and Dominican menu selection. Staff were pleasant and attentive. You’ll usually have to ask for your bill at the end of the meal as the Dominicans are more laid back, and don’t rush through meals themselves like us North American’s do. We had the continental breakfast as part of my Platinum gift for 2 of us which was good (great selection of juices and smoothies every day), and also ordered from the menu which was also good. If they ever have ribs as part of the special or buffet they’re a definite must have. The Brassa Grill and Bar is the beach front restaurant is usually open for dinner, unless there is a special buffet or dinner event going on so look at the sign at the restaurant entrance early on in the day to help plan where you’ll eat. Again, good selection of items, and you’ll need to ask for your bill. No reservations ever required at either restaurant, and never a wait of more than 2 minutes for a table even at peak season. The burgers here are good, and the pizzas are good and large (big enough for 2 adults). The Kite Bar is poolside an open until 9pm. They had Happy Hour every day starting at 6pm on select drinks (rum & Coke, local beer, daiquiris, and mojitos). They also had a lunch grill/buffet every day which we did a couple of times (burgers, hot dogs, chicken skewers other protein options, plus salads, wedge fries etc…) and worth it for an easy quick meal. You can also be served directly at your beach chairs from either restaurant. There is a 10% service charge (aka Tip) included in your bill but we typically added a bit more each time. One night we walked next door to the Playa Blanca Restaurant (open air right on the beach) and had another good meal so another good option for one night. Other Food Options – in the Punta Cana Village there is a selection of restaurants and a grocery store. We stocked up on some snacks/beer etc… and used the mini-fridge in the room to keep certain items cold. The Westin does rent additional fridges at $10/day but there’s no kitchenette so we didn’t need it as we emptied out the mini-bar fridge. The Beach – is gorgeous. Sand is beautiful. Constant breeze keeps you comfortable. It’s not the longest beach to walk, maybe 15 minutes end to end. The sea grass was never a problem. Twice a day workers rake up the bit of grass of the beach. Beach chairs were typically not a problem to get. They’re all “saved” by 10am by people putting their personal items on the chairs then heading in for breakfast. My logic was that if there’s only towels on the chairs, then they’re up for grabs. But around noon hour people start to pack up and move to the pool, lunch, excursions so chairs start opening up again. The water is quite shallow and sandy bottom. Snorkeling isn’t great as it’s mostly sand and sea grass, but there is a little, and I mean a little, bit of dead coral right off the gazebo where fish/sting rays hang out so if you have the gear bring it (leave the flippers at home though). There is a current moving parallel to the beach but not over powering. At the Kite Club next door they rent kayaks, paddle boards and offer catamaran trips for up to 6 people. We never did it as we just relaxed, and swam when at the beach. The rooms – are clean, modern, and all with great views (especially ours, room 400) as it was oceanfront. If you want morning sun on your balcony and afternoon shade, ask for the West wing. The East wing will give you the opposite. We preferred the afternoon shade to make sitting out more enjoyable. If you have small kids I’d go with the ground floor to make going in/out a lot easier and faster, plus you feel like you have your own yard and more space. Don’t leave any food or sweet stuff on your counters or else ants will find it. They stock your room with bottled water every day. We went through about 100 bottles but luckily they seem to recycle them. We brushed our teeth with the tap water but that’s it. We ended up with a King room, and the hotel provided two roll-away beds at no additional charge, one for each of our daughters so everyone had great sleeps. The Pool Area – is large, beautiful and never full. The pool itself is comprised of 3 sections – one large main one 4 feet deep and two smaller ones for kids and infants. The pool deck is slippery so they have yellow cones everywhere cautioning you. So don’t run with wet feet!!! It’s a lesson you learn very quickly. Chairs around the pool were never a problem to find. The hot tub is also great, but don’t go in it if you have a sun burn! Money Services at the Westin – there is an ATM machine onsite that dispenses only Dominican pesos which we didn’t have to use. While it’s convenient, it’s not a recognized bank name so the exchange rate won’t be great. There is also a Foreign Exchange booth that has regular daytime business hours and accepts credit cards and supposedly has better exchange rates. In the Village, there is a Bank of Nova Scotia right across from the 4Points Sheraton that dispenses only Dominican pesos as well and likely has the best rates. Most excursions and touristy things take US dollars, but the locals would prefer pesos for tips etc so they don’t have to do the exchange themselves. Westin Shuttle Service – is very handy and no charge. There is a schedule posted in the hotel lobby and surprisingly the shuttle runs on time. Take a photo of it on your phone so you don’t have to carry around the paper version. Sometimes there’s a lot of people waiting for it at the Westin around dinner time and they couldn’t all fit, but the hotel staff quickly took care of the overflow people by placing them in vans at no charge. However, taking the shuttle back from the Village at the 4Points Sheraton may not be so accommodating. The busy times on the way back were 8:50pm and 9:40pm, so plan appropriately. Golf Cart Rentals – are available through the BD Travel outfit located in the hotel lobby for either a 4 hour or 24 hour rental. You don’t have to reserve. My kids loved that. You can take around the Punta Cana Resort property but can’t go into Club Med or the private properties at that end. You can go through the La Cana community and check out the beautiful houses. It’s also a very convenient way to get to the petting zoo, the abandoned resort, the ecological reserve and La Yola restaurant (more on those in a sec). Things to Check Out on the Property – there are a lot of options to explore on the larger Punta Cana property, and best done if you rent a golf cart from the hotel lobby. TIPS – • Pack a mask and snorkel • Pack twice the amount of sunscreen you think you’ll need as its expensive down there • Ask for additional water for your room when you need it • Request the wing of the Westin depending on when you want sun on your balcony • Try the special buffet dinners whenever offered • Bring pesos to tip staff and the locals • Rent a golf cart and check out the petting zoo and abandoned Punta Cana Resort on the property • Compliment and commend the staff on their service. They’re very helpful and friendly and deserve to be treated with upmost respect. • Don’t save beach chairs if you don’t plan on using them for a couple of hours • Enjoy the Happy Hour at the hotel • Bring a clothespin to pinch the curtains together if you really want a dark room in the morning • The Kids Club at the Westin is great for younger kids • Reconfirm whether there is a tip already included in your bill

I was impressed with the resort. The hotel is situated so that every room has a beautiful view of the ocean and courtyard including the pool. The rooms were nicely appointed and clean. The lobby bar was awesome. The bartenders (Francisco and Mr. Santana because I can't remember his first name) were the best. They were very positive, upbeat, friendly, and always willing to help out. They were always busy but when they were not working their tails off they were chatting with the customers. I always felt welcome there. They have 2 other restaurants on the property as well. They also offer a free shuttle to other restaurants and market. There is a spa and golf courses as well. The bellmen and front desk staff were awesome too. I was extremely impressed with the ground keepers. They did everything by hand rather then using electric tools. Very impressed. If I had any complaint at all it would be that it seemed like it was far from everything and taxis were expensive. I took a taxi to Hard Rock and it cost me 140.00 round trip. They also have a desk onsite to book some tours which I took advantage of and the prices were reasonable. I liked that the bar and restaurants provided receipts that had 3 different totals (USD, Pesos, Euros). It made it very easy to figure out what was what.
