Punta Cana all-inclusive resort on sale at US$208 per night per couple

We’ve discussed how the late spring is the best time of the year to visit the Caribbean, and today’s deal is another perfect example of exactly why. The weather is still perfect in April and May and there is zero chance of any big storm for months, yet the best resorts all offer rooms at big discounts compared to a month or two earlier because most people are impatient.

The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa is one of the largest resorts of its kind in the Dominican Republic, with 451 rooms, and to help fill up all the rooms as the season comes to a close they are offering specials of 20% off of their already-discounted rates. Combined with a cheap flight you can get on your own, this is a deal that will only cost a bit more than staying home.

The deal

A standard room for US$208 per night for two people at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa through a special deal offered on Expedia. Upgrade to a Deluxe room for only $9 more per night, or a Loft Suite for only $19 more per couple.

The details

This deal is available for select dates in April and May through Expedia using the 20% discount they are currently offering. The price was researched for a 7-night stay, but the offer doesn’t appear to be restricted to long stays so you might get it for a long weekend stay as well.

Full-on all-inclusive with choice

One of the best things about this deal is that the Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa offers 13 different restaurants and bars, and the all-inclusive deal covers all of them, including alcoholic drinks. There are restrictions for certain top-shelf liquors and premium wines, but the normal class is all included so you can stay as long as you like without having extra expenses if you prefer.

Better still, the rooms all include a jetted bathtub, a balcony, and an iPod docking station, plus you can upgrade to a Deluxe room or even a Loft Suite for a tiny amount more. Many of these resorts are designed to get people excited about a low price only to reveal that the price is for a ground-floor room with a view of the parking lot and that a room with a view costs a great deal more. Here you can get a Loft Suite for only $227 per night per couple as part of this deal, so who wouldn’t?

Obviously you’ve got a beautiful beach out front and a big pool area to relax by, and the resort also features snorkeling and kayaking and scuba diving among the many water-sports options. There’s also a golf course very nearby, though of course that’s at an extra charge.

Punta Cana is a posh destination

You may not be familiar with the different Dominican Republic resort areas so you’ll be happy to learn that Punta Cana is actually one of the upmarket spots on the island. Resorts in Puerto Plata are quite a bit cheaper so you will find people who could barely afford to leave home there, while Punta Cana is where many of the beautiful people go. This fantastic deal at a deluxe resort is a perfect combination for those who prefer not to be mixed in with a less sophisticated crowd.
