Fodor's Expert Review Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa

Playa Uvero Alto, Km 275, Uvero Alto, La Altagracia, Dominican Republic Fodor's Choice

For adults only, this edgy resort with a sexy yet whimsical vibe, is particularly good for singles, filling a void that's been lacking in Punta Cana. The contemporary decor with its explosion of vibrant colors—orchid, orange, flamingo pink—strong lighting, dangling sculptures, and retro-styled furniture may indeed leave you breathless. Its playfulness is exemplified in the clever names of its nine restaurants—Coquette (French), Bite (contemporary buffet), Spoon (gourmet grill), Silk City (Pan-Asian), etc. A social hub is the Plaza, where video concerts are streamed and where guests move over to Wink for their cocktails. Events and holidays are especially popular here, and parties are big celebrations. The spa is a favored amenity. If feasible, upgrade to the club level, called Xhale, where you will be catered to as you chill. The beach is gorgeous, with beach parties often midday. Efficient management truly cares. The best rooms are the Master Ocean Suites and swim-up rooms.

PROS

  • premium liquors are served in the lobby bar Wink and the Xhale club lounge
  • Xhale level is a worthy upgrade
  • the entertainment teams works hard to keep the party going

CONS

  • standard rooms are nicely decorated but basic and smallish
