Club Med Punta Cana

  • Fodor's Choice


  • Upscale, two-bedroom Trident Tiara suites ($790) are the best choice
  • Animated, fun, interesting, global staff
  • Themed weeks for music, dance, and sports


  • Although buffets are praiseworthy, dining options are limited
  • Wi-Fi is expensive both in-room and in public spaces (free in Tiara suites)
  • Most guest complaints seem to occur during peak holiday times
  • Complaints cited are that standard rooms are aging (although being renovated in stages) and maintenance issues

Fodor's Review

Whimsy and camaraderie are characteristic of this family-friendly resort—Punta Cana's original all-inclusive—redesigned and situated on 75 tropical acres, with a coastline of incredible white-sandy shores. Family programs, which run for kids of all ages, from babes to teens, are outstanding. The Tiara Suites section has its own bar, an infinity pool, and stages an exceptional cocktail party on gala night. The spirited beach bar is a hotbed even at night, with dancing and light fare served until 1 am. The deluxe spa has 10 treatment rooms plus oceanfront palapas. Activities galore, there's everything from water aerobics to jungle zip-lining and circus programs. Club Med has entered into a new partnership with Cirque du Soleil and by June 2015, guests will be able to learn many of the exciting acrobatic disciplines showcased in famed Cirque du Soleil, like circus acrobatics and artistic activities ranging from high bungee, flying trapeze, aerial silk, tightrope, and trampoline to juggling, percussion and dance, and mask painting.
