We’ve discussed this on this blog before, but it’s worth repeating that one of the most common questions we get is about finding adults-only resorts in the Caribbean. For some reason people feel shy about asking for those, perhaps because people might think they hate kids or perhaps they are worried about being confused with the “swingers resorts” but have no fear, there are some great choices and here is a fantastic deal on one.
The Excellence Punta Cana Resort is a 4.5 star property on the beach in one of the most upscale parts of the Dominican Republic, and it doesn’t allow guests under the age of 18. This sale they are running at 20% off makes it an even better deal for those who don’t want to worry about screaming and splashing kids by the pool or crying babies in the restaurants.
A Junior Suite Garden or Mountain View at the Excellence Punta Cana Resort for only US$371 per night for two people on an all-inclusive basis.
This deal is available through Expedia, or hotel provider, for selected dates in the coming months. An Ocean View room goes for US$573, which is one of the highest premiums on those that we’ve seen, so it’s probably not a great deal considering you’ll be spending all your time by the pool or on the beach anyway. No minimum stay is required, so you can do even a long weekend, and there is free cancellation.
A fabulous adults-only resort with everything
If you are looking for a little boutique resort, this one is not for you. The Excellence Punta Cana is big, and it dominates a 1.5-mile stretch of secluded white sand beach in Punta Cana. There are 8 restaurants, 10 bars and lounges (including a swim-up bar) and a night club. There is also 3 tennis courts and a full health spa.
The 472 rooms are all quite large and well appointed, even the lowest priced ones that are part of this deal, so you can be sure that you’ll be staying in a first-class hotel for a very appealing price.
Each room has a 4-poster kingsized bed and a furnished private balcony or terrace, plus a satellite TV. You also get bathrobes and slippers, an upgraded minibar with beer, soft drinks and juices that are all restocked daily and all part of the all-inclusive deal.
The bathroom has a jetted tub and a separate shower, and of course you get all the 5-star bath amenities that you’d expect at a luxury resort like this. There is even a pillow menu so each guest can sleep as soundly as possible in the most comfortable bed possible.
Considering that a beach resort like this would cost US$350 per night just for the room alone if it were on Miami Beach or in Hawaii, the deal with the all inclusive is difficult to pass up. Whether you like to relax by the pool all day with a few cocktails, or do various beach activities all day to work up a sweat for clubbing at night, it’s all included at a very good price right now.
