Now Larimar Punta Cana

El Cortecito, Av. Alemania s/n, Bávaro, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic

This relatively new, moderately priced branch of the AMResorts family has style as well as a gorgeous 700-yard beachfront. The standard rooms are too basic for a lot of guests, and the ones near the courtyard can be noisy; room blocks have no elevators, and garden rooms are far from the pool area. The lobby's contemporary interior design is fresh and vibrant with attention-getting details such as shell room dividers. Parents can happily send kids off to the Explorers Club, tweens and teens to the Core Zone, then enjoy the stunning Spa by Pevonia. The animation team can try a bit too hard, but the resort is fun and tries to get everyone involved. Eight restaurants are all reservation-free, and the main buffet is exceptional. The Preferred Club has a reasonable extra charge, adding contemporary hors d’oeuvres and high-end liquor in the Club lounge, as well as free Wi-Fi.
