This week, I'll tell you about five of our best-selling resorts in
the Dominican Republic. Each one is all-inclusive, which means the
upfront price includes accommodations, meals, alcoholic and nonalcoholic
beverages, entertainment, activities and nonmotorized water sports.
The Dominican Republic is one of the most affordable resort destinations
in the Caribbean. Snorkelers and divers explore coral reefs and
shipwrecks, fishing enthusiasts compete for marlin and sailfish and
golfers are drawn to courses designed by legends of the game.
But most come to the Dominican Republic simply to enjoy its broad, sandy
stretches. For that, many vacationers check into the resorts of Punta
Cana, such as the five top sellers listed below.
Dreams Punta Cana
(4.5 stars) -- This resort boasts one of the largest free-form pools in
the Dominican Republic. Lodging options include swimout suites with
direct access to the pool and connecting rooms for groups needing more
space. The Explorer's Club provides activities for kids ages 3 to 12,
while the Core Zone for teens offers a dedicated lounge.
Hard Rock Hotel Punta Cana
(5 stars) -- Creative amenities at this beach retreat reflect the
company's rock 'n' roll spirit. "The Sound of Your Stay" provides Fender
guitars with in-room video lessons, DJ equipment and free playlists,
while the "Music Lab Experience" helps you form your own band or mix
Hotel Riu Republica
(4.5 stars) -- This no-kids resort offers eight pools with swim-up bars,

private lounge and restaurant.
Secrets Royal Beach
(5 stars) -- Palapas and palms dot the sugar-white beach in front of
this no-kids resort, and a free-form pool winds through manicured
gardens and lush grounds. The property features seven dining options, 11
