What to Expect

Four-star all-inclusive resort on palm tree-lined Arena Gorda Beach with the perfect split of accommodations and activities for both families and couples alike

Resort Details

Hotel Riu Palace Bavaro sits right on peaceful Arena Gorda Beach with 600 rooms and 12 villas laid out perfectly to give both families and couples the space they need. The inviting rooms all have a balcony or terrace, 24-hour room service and a mini-bar, but you won’t be spending much time indoors. The palm tree-lined beach and two swimming pools—plus one just for children—have ample loungers and wait staff takes care of anything else you need.

The resort’s live entertainment, on-site discotheque, kids’ club, Renova Spa and array of included water and land sports ensure your vacation is full of both relaxation and activity. Three buffets and five international à la carte restaurants keep everyone satisfied, even the pickiest eaters—plus, the bars serve ice cream and snacks all day! The exclusive villas with access to two private pools and bars are perfect for adults looking for a little extra privacy. In fact, this resort has six conference rooms with a 1000-person capacity for those planning a business retreat or meeting.

Nearby Attractions

When you’re not perfecting your tan on golden beaches or practicing your golf swing at one of the five nearby courses, Punta Cana offers exhilarating activities and natural wonders ripe for exploration. Head to Scape Park for hiking, ziplining and swimming in the crisp blue cenote, Hoyo Azul. Or, visit Manatí Park where the whole family will enjoy exotic birds, reptiles and Taíno dance performances.

For the best of both worlds, take a trip to Saona Island. Parque Nacional de Esta and quiet beaches offer the relaxing escape you need on land and water lovers have crystal clear water for swimming and snorkeling—there’s even a starfish pool off just the island.
