The 20 Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Punta Cana for 2024

The Dominican Republic welcomed more visitors last year than any in the country’s history, with most travelers descending on one place: Punta Cana, the tourism hotspot on the country’s eastern coast. Punta Cana has always been the most popular place to visit in the Dominican Republic, and that is largely for one reason: a remarkable number of all-inclusive resorts on the beach.

Centered on Bavaro Beach and now expanding to places like Cabeza del Toro, Cap Cana, Macao and Uvero Alto, Punta Cana is the Caribbean capital of all-inclusive resorts. But navigating them is not always easy, particularly when you’re choosing between family-friendly resorts and adults-only hotels. Our latest edition of the Best All-Inclusive Resorts in Punta Cana is your guide to CJ’s favorite places to stay in this booming Caribbean destination.  

#1 Lopesan Costa Bavaro Resort Spa & Casino We just love this Bavaro Beach resort, thanks to a blend of terrific design, excellent food, a prime perch of beachfront and an almost endless list of amenities, ranging from a water park to a fantastic outdoor mall-style promenade called The Boulevard. The rooms are sleek and well-appointed, particularly the lovely swim-up rooms. All in all, this is the most complete resort in Punta Cana and, for 2024 (as was the case last year), the Lopesan is our pick for number one. This is the first Lopesan resort in the Caribbean, and it’s a brand that should definitely be on your travel radar.
