Fodor's Expert Review Excellence Punta Cana

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

Originally known to be a sumptuous lovers' lair, this adults-only, all-inclusive is particularly appealing to couples (honeymooners, for sure) and wedding parties, but it now attracts a younger, fun clientele. Basic rooms at the all-suite property are junior suites, and the swim-out rooms are most in demand. The spacious suites have double Jacuzzis. Honeymooners love the round-the-clock room service, but the restaurants are serving up fine fare, including the stand-out the Flavor Market, which pairs a gourmet tasting menu with fine wines. A very good spa—with a Zen fountain, indulgent massages, and other well-given treatments, plus hot-and-cold-water tubs—has a special couples’ menu. The fitness-cardio conditioning center is impressive, too, plus there's yoga and Pilates. The resort offers a full range of water sports and other activities, including guided horseback rides. Special nights, like the upscale barbecue, are energized with cool, live music. The best deals are on the resort's website.
