Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Miles of White-Sand Beaches

When Christopher Columbus landed on the Dominican Republic more than five centuries ago, he described it as “a beautiful island paradise.” Punta Cana, located on the island’s easternmost tip, lays legitimate claim to that description. The coast stretches for more than 20 miles and is dotted with coconut palms, chaise lounges, and laid-back bars. Glitzy resorts feature prominently along the shoreline, but Playa El Cortecito, a short drive up the coast, harks back to earlier times. Brightly colored thatched-roof shacks line the beach, and local fishermen bring their boats to shore each afternoon with the day’s catch.

Food was horrible You have to walk for miles to get to a restaurant. They don’t clean the pools and nothing there was fresh. Been to quite a few resorts in DR but this was by far the worst.. very shocked with the experience

The Ocean El Faro was an incredibly disappointing experience. The island and ocean are beautiful, but the service at the resort was awful. We waited in the lobby for 3 hours to check in after they said our room would be ready in 20 minutes. The process for getting our COVID tests to renter the US was poorly explained and poorly executed by the hotel staff, the food quality and staffing was poor.

Beautiful resort. Bars and specialty restaurants were good. Food selections were limited and service was so slow. We were Privilege and got no attention from our representatives. Very chaotic and aggravating experience. We would never go back!
