Sanctuary Cap Cana
Sanctuary Cap Cana resort is based on a colonial Spanish feel and sits on more than 20 acres with 2,100 feet of pristine ocean. But the resort is more than its stunning beach access. Guests can enjoy activities like six outdoor pools – including a saltwater pool and a swim-up bar – plus access to the exclusive on-site resort.
This adult-only property has brand new, luxury suites fit for queens and kings celebrating their love for each other, including the Castle Island Suite that treats guests to the privacy of access to their own island. We highly recommend this property as for a perfect honeymoon in the Dominican Republic.
With accommodations like sweeping views of the Caribbean Sea, date spots at the resort’s gourmet dining outlets, and a world-class spa with several romantic couples treatments and a new ZEN garden, shower paths, and hydrotherapeutic pools. Sanctuary Cap Cana delivers.
Excellence Punta Cana
If you’re looking for an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic with a romantic atmosphere to relax and unwind, then you’ll want to book a stay at Excellence Punta Cana. This adult-only, all-inclusive resort is perfectly situated on a picturesque sandy beach that feels perfectly secluded.
The rooms at this resort continue the feeling of seclusion and romance. Guests will find high-end amenities like a private jetted tub and scenic soaking tubs. Want to kick the pampering up a notch? Visit the full-service on-site spa that treats guests to a wide range of botanical and natural treatments.
CHIC by Royalton
This property provides couples with a great poolside atmosphere. From daytime parties to nightly-themed parties and entertaining performances, CHIC is a great spot for couples who are ready to party. With 320 stylish suites on the property, six different restaurants, and multiple bars, guests will have plenty of upscale luxury to keep them busy.
The ground floor of Diamond Club™ suites are each adorned with personal plunge pools that serve as the perfect place to take in all the action poolside while relaxing waist-deep in cool waters away from the crowd.
Secrets Cap Cana
Secrets resorts are part of the World of Hyatt, along with Dreams and Breathless properties. Many of the amenities and inclusions are the same at each resort, like unlimited dining and drinks, luxury accommodations with upgrades like private pools or swim-up entrances, and tons of complimentary entertainment and activities.
Secrets properties are adults-only all-inclusive, with an emphasis on romance and luxury. Secrets Cap Cana is in the safe, gated community of Cap Cana surrounded by other Punta Cana high-end resorts, and offers easy access to trendy restaurants, clubs, and bars if you feel like venturing off-site. This is the top-rated Secrets resort.
Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa, like other members of the World of Hyatt, has many of the same offerings that Secrets and Dreams properties do in terms of room layouts and dining options. Like Secrets resorts, all-inclusive Breathless resorts are for adults only and feature daily activities and nightly entertainment.
Unlike Secrets resorts, however, Breathless properties have a livelier party atmosphere aimed at young couples and solo travelers. Pool parties, drinking games around the main pool, and late nights with live DJs are the norm here.
Many reviews mention noise, and there don’t seem to be any accommodation buildings set far enough away from the main pool to escape it. That being said, if you want to party, this is the resort for you.
Barcelo Bavaro Beach
Barcelo Bavaro Beach is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort tucked along Bavaro Beach with 580 rooms, 11 restaurants, two bars, and a large swimming pool. Couples will definitely have plenty to keep them entertained on this property.
The resort’s Premium Level Ocean Front Suite Room is great for couples looking for that romantic getaway because it comes with a hot tub, a living room, and beautiful views of the Caribbean. Plus guests get a free round of golf per person and Premium Level perks (including concierge service, 24-hour room service, and complimentary daily use of the U-Spa hydrotherapy circuit).
The resort’s complimentary “In Love Package,” includes an upgrade to the next room category, priority check-in, late check-out, continental breakfast in the room on the first day, and a bottle of sparkling wine and Petit Fours delivered to the room.
Aside from all these amenities, there’s also a nightclub, a casino, and a state-of-the-art health and wellness center. This romantic and adventurous property was made for couples looking for a little alone time.
Le Sivory is a great option for couples looking for a simple, minimalist escape. This smaller, beachside resort boasts only 55 rooms, but it doesn’t skimp on the finishes or the experience.
Le Sivory sits on a beautiful beach making you just a few steps away from the sand and the waves. When you want to relax, you can step into the resort’s spa and be treated to a variety of wellness-focused treatments. You’ll feel brand new before your stay is over.
The biggest draw for Le Sivory is the dining. Guests rave about the food options and atmospheric dining. Choose from three Michelin-design restaurants ranging from Mediterranean-inspired to Asian fusion. Plus, this resort has an extensive wine collection with a wine cellar that holds over 8,000 bottles from around the world.
Iberostar Grand Bavaro
Iberostar Grand Bavaro is one of Iberostar’s adult-only locations. The lavish grounds live up to the Spanish-based chain’s reputation for opulent architectural design with high domed ceilings, Greco-Roman-inspired white pillars, and lush gardens.
The all-inclusive rate here includes butler service, huge private furnished terraces, and in-room whirlpool tubs. Guests at Iberostar Grand Bavaro will also enjoy a complimentary golf package with their stay that includes unlimited rounds of golf and free transfers to and from the course.
TRS Turquesa Hotel
TRS Turquesa Hotel is the adult-only section inside the all-inclusive Grand Palladium Complex. The TRS Turquesa Hotel is a self-contained area featuring private facilities and personalized services to enhance the adult-only atmosphere.
Couples will enjoy an exclusive restaurant and full access to concierge services. Plus, there is a stunning pool with a built-in hot tub perfect for relaxing. And if you’re spending your day pool or beachside, then you can take advantage of the bar service in both locations.
TRS Turquesa truly has it all on-site. Guests can find a world-class spa, a manicured golf course, and even shopping centers. You’ll never have to leave the resort – especially with the free shuttle service to get you around.
Catalonia Royal La Romana
Located in the sleepy town of Bayahibe, Catalonia Royal La Romana is the perfect setting for a peaceful, affordable adults-only all-inclusive resort. And the experience starts as soon as you arrive. Guests are greeted with a complimentary welcome cocktail and will enjoy a sprawling buffet restaurant, plus unlimited local alcoholic drinks and fresh fruit juice.
Reviews mention that the food is a bit underwhelming, but the resort is in a good location and has a rewards program that gives members discounts and perks like free a la carte breakfast or late check-outs.
