Punta Cana Resort & Club Tortuga Bay
One the most famous hotels in the region, with a superb location and within the complete resort, a very impressive selection of facilities. Punta Cana Airport is just 10 minutes away.
The resort is within a 15,000 acre private estate, and includes two championship golf courses, numerous restaurants and bars in differing locations, a 3 mile beach, an Asian inspired spa, several swimming pools, a selection of water sports, yacht hire and deep sea fishing opportunities, marina, ecological reserve even Segway Tours of the estate, equestrian centre.
The Punta Cana Hotel has 170 rooms, with a choice of deluxe rooms, Junior suites and Beach Casitas with two or three bedrooms. Decorated in a traditional Caribbean style, with many of the rooms directly facing the superb beach.
The Club Tortuga Bay is more upscale and exclusive with just 30 Junior suites, and a selection of one to four bedroom villas. All are extremely spacious and elegant, designed by by Oscar de La Renta. All are particularly good for families – the Junior suites tend to be on the upper floors of the two storey clusters and have integrated living space, with the two bedroom suites occupying the ground floor. All have sea facing terrace or balcony. Golf carts are provided, one to each suite or villa.
Within the Club Tortuga Bay you have a separate swimming pool and restaurant, reserved exclusively for in house guests. Plus of course you can use all of the facilities of the main resort.
Chic Check – One of the most complete resorts in the region, the range of facilities and the choice of dining options, is fantastic. The Punta Cana hotel provides the best price and is attractive in an easy going manner, but for those requiring more exclusivity upgrade to the Club Tortuga Bay. The private estate is vast and totally self-contained, and the independent Segway Tours are a great way to discover the grounds.
Although the attractions within the resort are immense and will probably occupy most of your days, the island is well worth exploring. The town of Punta Cana is manicured and has some shopping and restaurant alternatives. Much more interesting would be to visit the capital Santo Domingo, one of the oldest and historic cities in the Western Hemisphere and here you will find a colonial, somewhat crumbling elegance especially in the old quarter, and some excellent high end boutiques and restaurants. It is a 3 hour drive each way, with some sightseeing en route, but is a recommended suggestion for something very different.
