Where to stay in Punta Cana – Our hotel recommendations

Punta Cana is the ideal destination for those who want to relax on stunning beaches and in really comfortable accommodations. Therefore, choosing a good hotel in the region can make all the difference in the trip.


Praia Bávaro and Arena Gorda are where the largest number of resorts are located, ideal for families and friends. If you are looking for luxury and exclusivity, choose Cap Cana. The resorts on Uvaro Alto and Macaco Beach have their exclusivity with more affordable prices.


To get away from the hustle and bustle, the best option is to face the wildness of the sea further north, in Uvero Alto and Macao, or face the desert paradise at the southern tip, in Cabeza de Toro. Whose complicated access is ideal for those who want to isolate themselves, without losing the natural beauties.
