DR - Uncrowded & Laid-Back

Jump to last reply


We're going on a 3-night/4-day getaway in November from the NYC area. We want a direct flight and a hotel close to the airport to cut travel time.

We're looking for:
--as uncrowded a beach as possible without leaving the safety of a resort
--clean rooms
--special occasion, so we don't want to be disappointed by a rundown hotel
--room with some privacy features would be nice (like a private balcony or plunge pool) but not necessary
--laid back, not stuffy vibe

Not looking for:
--night life
--a plethora of activities

We'd go to the Bahamas but too hard to travel to the out islands. Also probably more expensive. Turks and Caicos was another option but also expensive. So we narrowed it down to Punta Cana for convenience and the most value.

What is the least crowded resort beach that you've ever been to in PC?

Thanks for your help!
