Hotel Review: Club Med Punta Cana

This is an additional fee unless you’ve arranged something in advance. There is a Club Med counter in the airport just before you exit to the ground transportation area, so check in here for both pre-arranged transportation or if you need help in the moment. Because the Dominican Republic is NOT a part of the USA , you do need to have a passport before booking your travel. Upon arrival, you’ll need to go through the E-ticket system to make your customs declarations.

Before arriving at Club Med Punta Cana, we didn’t understand what makes the brand different or even what to expect, including what an all-inclusive stay was like. We reviewed the website well in advance and researched what we could, but felt that the available information was a bit cryptic. Once we arrived and had our orientation, it made sense to us.

If you feel like you want to venture out, Club Med has excursions .

The only place to sit down and get served was Indigo. The best dinner we had was at Indigo twice, more of a steakhouse with limited menu. The breakfast there was ok and you were served. The breakfast/lunch buffet, hispaniola, had a better selection of food, especially pastries.

The Samana restaurant faces the swimming pool and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner buffet-style. Dinner offered a wide variety of fish, meat and pasta entrees, along with an unexpected selection of Asian-style spring rolls, which were quite good. A special baby corner is available for parents to prepare meals for little ones right in the restaurant.

Club Med Cancun offers a similar experience on the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico. Cancun might be a better destination for families who like to explore restaurants, bars and nightlife away from the resort. Considered by some to be one of the best Cancun all-inclusive resorts for families, Club Med Punta Cana is a ten-minute drive from the airport and from Punta Cana Village.

Parents are also welcome to drop their children at the kids’ club and head to the Zen Oasis area of the resort, where they can enjoy some quiet time away from their (and everyone else’s) children. Water sports available free of charge to guests include stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing, canoeing, kayaking, water polo and aquafitness classes. Samana at Club Med Punta Cana was our family’s favorite spot to eat. While the specific offerings change by meal time and day, the buffet style with really interesting, international cuisines made it our top pick.

Guests can request an early check-in or late check-out, for an extra cost.

Had noises from air conditioners fixed immediately. Ramon the tennis director is always very friendly and accommodating. Strung my racquet within hours the very same day.

Every evening at 6pm when it starts to go dark the entire Club Med Miches resort is sprayed with mosquito repellent by a staff member driving around in a small van leaving a trail of thick white smoke. Taking a shower makes the entire bathroom slippery and wet, bathtub included. The bathroom door had clearly seen better days and was hard to close because of the expanded wood and moisture.
