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.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 1 day ago

A little bit of background on my reservation to keep this in context. My stay was for 10 nights, 11 days. During the downtime in May. I paid full price for a full Oceanview suite. Given the length of my stay and the class of room, from my experience, hotels tend to put you in the best rooms because you are there for such a long time, compared with travelers there for only a few nights. This did not happen here, despite repeated emails ahead of time and an extended stay, and specific requests. Of all things, this was perhaps the most frustrating. To walk around at night and see almost every room empty, and to realize that they had put you in one of the crappiest rooms all the way above the lobby far away from the ocean while you are here for a significant amount of time. I mentioned this on my second day to the front desk and they told me they had nothing else. Room service told me they were 60% occupied. To me there was just no excuse for this at all. I have to work on "vacation" usually 6-8 hours a day as a business owner and professor, so having a room with a view matters to me a great deal. For those of you also that plan to work, be careful of the Wi-Fi. Yes it's free but there's a reason for that. You get what you pay for. Here are the pros and cons in my opinion of this hotel: Pros: The sand in front of the hotel is gorgeous. The beach extends far out, the water is shallow for a significant portion far past the swimming area, and there is a "sand bar" quite a bit out (not the type that serves alcohol, the natural type LOL) Plentiful bottled water in the rooms, which you'll need. Extra fridge for storing drinks and food. Pool toys and floaties are free at the towel desk. Most of the people that I talked with tried their best to do a good job. They were friendly and other than an occasional irritated front desk person who couldn't help, pleasant to work with. This is a hotel that accommodates Fitness quite well. From healthy options on the menu to a Gym to $5 fitness equipment in your room, they do a decent job trying to help you stay on a good fitness track. Hotel is relatively new, so things still work. There is an on-site cigar and rum bar. Hot Tub is quite expansive, although not very hot. Food tip: order the kids filet mignon. Good and reasonably priced. Housekeeping was efficient and kind. They wouldn't take the money I left out for them on the bed without a note - honest people. Thin thin walls. Even on the top floor you will hear everything your neighbor does. Being ear plugs Room service was sometimes slow but again nice people. The language barrier sometimes resulted in random food however. Now the downsides... I teetered between a three and four star review of this hotel. In the end, the issues regarding the room placement, being dishonest about availability and inadequate childrens club, and in my opinion dishonest marketing regarding how many restaurants they have I have given this three stars. Downsides: Pool service is very difficult to come by. Many times you will see the servers hanging out at the Kite bar, but not out taking orders. They come by about every 45 minutes. As someone who eats and works outside, this was quite irritating. They say they have five restaurants on site but this is simply not true. The kite bar, which serves the same food as all of the other restaurants, counts as one to them. The cigar bar, which has no food really, counts as one. The inside bar counts as their third. Again it's the same menu IF they'll serve you. The inside and outside restaurants, other than a couple of things that are different like baked potatoes, have exactly the same menu. By day 3, we were all sick and tired of the same food from room service and the "restaurant". There is really only one menu at all restaurants. From there, your only option is to go to either the local village which will cost you $20 each Way by taxi, wait an hour for a shuttle, or walk there which is about 4 km. There is another city about 20 minutes away ($45 each Way by taxi) that can get you to a location with more restaurants (it's called Bavari) and it's nice for an occasional night out, but these guys really need to expand their menu options. I don't want to see another cheese quesadilla in my life. Paying $80 plus tip just to get somewhere to eat is absurd. It borders on intentional price gouging. The Internet. Don't even get me started with this. Most of the time I had to have my laptop connected to my phone on a 3G Verizon connection through the Claro network to get any work done at all. It was intermittent at best. Free but doesn't work. Make sure you turn a travel pass on before you leave. Sparse furniture in the room makes for a relatively uncomfortable stay, including in the living area. The pull out couch is not usable as a bed. It feels like one giant spring. Even my six-year-old would not sleep on it and we had to get an extra bed. There is no table for room service on The deck, and only two chairs. Lacking a desk chair - needs one badly. The TV should not be above the desk. Anyone working will soon get a blazing headache or be unable to concentrate. Emailed ahead of time several different requests and none of which were met, although I did get an email confirmation back. Throughout our stay, they were out of many fruits, OJ, avocado etc. The free breakfast downstairs on Saturday is terrible. The omelet bar was out of most ingredients. Very bland boring menu with only one restaurant serving same things. Need ice buckets at pool ā€¦ Asking for ice resulted in generally a single glass, even when we asked for a bucket. You do not want your $15 drinks going warm in five minutes. The kids club is dark, hot and smelly. My daughter looked forward to going before our trip as she does at every resort. 30 minutes into the first day she asked to never go again. They need multilingual people, air conditioning and thorough cleaning. She didn't go back. Buffet runs out of food quickly. With some refinement and additional *real* restaurants this could be good but right now it's a three star place.

This was one of the nicest hotel's that my wife and I have stayed at in a long time. From the moment we checked in Yarik and his staff was a great help as we celebrated our anniversary with our kids. This was a fantastic trip!!!

Grelhlym is the best bartender EVER! Such a pleasure to be around. Very attentive & always smiling. šŸ˜Š We looked forward to happy hour at the Kite Bar every day! Highly recommend the Sangria. It takes a few minutes because they make it fresh & on the spot, but SOOOOO worth the wait!!


TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 days ago

In the Dominican Republic there is one place to spend hours watching the ocean and enjoying the best drinks in the country. Grelhlym has taken Sangria to a level that is not known in the US. He takes the time to make you enjoy your time at his bar. None finer in the Carribean or abroad. Stay long. Tip well. Enjoy your time with him. Ten Stars!!!

The hotel was great. It was really clean, had a great beach, and amazing staff. But, it was boring. You're really stuck in a resort the whole time you're there. So, there isn't any culture or city life. It's like Disneyland. If you're into sitting on a beach and doing not much else I would recommend this place. If you like to take in the sites and experience life in a different place skip it. I do, however, highly recommend the yoga class on the beach though. That was great.
