Thinking of “Doing The Dominican”???

Leave a comment

Are you thinking of a Dominican Getaway?

Its a FUN Destination for sure with many choices for All Kinds of FUN in the SUN!

And remember too there are two sides to the Dominican Republic! The Punta Cana / Bavaro Beach area which is on the Atlantic Side of the Island and then LaRomana which is on the Caribbean Side!

If you are flying into the Punta Cana Airport …here are some of my FAVS listed by closer proximity.

Dreams Palm Beach! only about 30 minutes from the Airport!

Main Pool at Dreams Palm Beach is Awesome

Next in line are Now Larimar and Secrets Royal Beach! Secrets Royal Beach is Adults Only and next door to them is Now Larimar the Family Friendly Resort. And they are about 40 minutes from the airport!

Here is a shot of the Pool at Secrets Royal Beach

Now Larimar is right next door to Secrets

This shows the Beach and Pools at Now Larimar

Beach and Pools at Now Larimar are Breathtaking!

Down the road a bit is Dreams Punta Cana about 50 minutes from the airport and has the largest winding pool in Punta Cana!

The Pool at Dreams Punta Cana runs the length of the resort

Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is about 60 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport and a Magical Place for sure!

The Infinity Pool at Zoetry Agua over looks the magnificient beach and a very calm ocean thanks to the reef that protects it from rough waves!

On the other side a mere 90 minutes from the Punta Cana Airport or 30 minutes if you fly into the LaRomana Airport is Dreams La Romana!

The Infinity Pool at Dreams LaRomana overlooks the Beach and Ocean and the snorkeling here is very good!

I’ve been to each of these resorts and love each of them for various reasons… You can’t go wrong on choosing any of them!

So many FAV things here…Lunch with the Teams on the Patio done by Chef Gordy was OUTSTANDING! Having a butler at the Preferred Club at NOW Larimar was GREAT! LOVED the Beach in front of BOTH NOW Larimar and SECRETS Royal Beach! Hope that this album captures why we LOVE both of these New Addisitons to the AMazing AMResorts Family!

Recently had the chance to be at Secrets Royal Beach and fell in love with the resort for so many reasons!

The location on Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana is truly magnificent, with the Ocean and Beach being among the best I have seen.

The Pool at Secrets Royal Beach is just spectacular! I love the way that it winds around the property giving so many Swim out Suites access and then coming to the Swim Up Bar! LOVELY!

And I love all the little bridges that cross over the pool from one side to the other…such a nice feature!

While I was there I created a slide show…showing some of reasons I fell in LOVE with Secrets Royal Beach…The Location, The Staff, The Food and Drinks, so many SWEET SECRETS that are both SWEET and ROYAL at Secrets Royal Beach!

The Lobby there is both warm and welcoming with lots of great space to spread out and enjoy the lobby bar, or to use the computers to check email or check at the front desk or the two Concierge on either side of the front desk… A friendly vibe about it for sure!

Arrived yesterday afternoon and met old friend and embraced new ones! What fun!

While in the Preffered Club Lobby I ran into some Dear Friends who are helping here with the “Re-Branding” Gabriel Rierra and Christian Maiel always good to see and learn more about what is going on so I can share with all of you!

They got a big kick and giggle when they saw the tee shirt!

After a quick meet up it was on to Secrets Royal Beach for Lunch with the Team and getting to know them and the properties! It was GREAT FUN!
