Paradisus Palma Real Resort

Bavaro Beach, Bávaro, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic

This luxury all-inclusive is a visual showstopper especially its central plaza by night, which sparkles under dramatic lighting. 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 imbibing potential. 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-size robes and slippers. The resort's restaurants are opulently decorated, though in some cases the decor may outshine the food. The Asian-inspired YHI Spa has just had its renovations; its lagoons, boardwalks, and a hushed serenity make for a soothing experience.
