Paradisus Palma Real Resort

Bávaro Beach, Bávaro, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic

This luxury all-inclusive is a visual showstopper and has one of the country's best spas and also one of Punta Cana's best restaurants in Passion by Martin Berasategui. The average suite, with flat-screen TV, CD player, terrace, and semi-open marble bathroom with jet showers and a Jacuzzi for two, is spacious. Those upgrading to the adults-only Royal Service will enjoy its stellar contemporary lounge with its delightful grazing and top-shelf drinks and sea views. Family-oriented, the Reserve, a private self-contained group of 190 luxurious suites, has an optional, signature, family-concierge plan, that includes lavish attention for kids, who get their own check-in, welcome backpacks, and mini robes and slippers. The mini club offers sports activities in the multiadventure park (climbing wall, trampolines), art and crafts activities (mask-making and cooking among them). The resort's restaurants are opulently decorated, though in some cases the decor may outshine the food. The Asian-inspired YHI Spa offers a hushed serenity make for a soothing experience.
