Editor’s Review of Club Med Punta Cana

Pioneers in catering specifically to the needs of families with children, the folks at Club Med were kid-friendly long before being kid-friendly was cool. The GOs ("gracious organizers") who play host to Club Med guests are genuinely that, welcoming and warm. So when their Punta Cana resort recently underwent a $36 million renovation, which included adding some impressive and high-end waterfront family suites to the property, the renovations did not disappointed. Located on the Atlantic coast of the Domincan Republic, on a private stretch of white beach just 10 minutes from the Punta Cana airport, the resort is ideal for folks who don't want to venture too far afield; but are looking for a peaceful, tropical respite.

I certainly expected more from Club Med. When I booked this trip, Punta Cana was rated in the top ten for kids. They certainly don't rate that from me. Have you ever walked into a room/suite and said "oh, this ...

This vacation will go down as our worst vacation --- ever. We had stayed at the Club Med in Cancun and loved it. The one in Punta Cana was a different story. We switched rooms once and begged to switch again but was told ...

There are a wide variety of rooms and suites (more than 550 of them) to choose from at Club Med Punta Cana, including Club Rooms, Deluxe Rooms and Family Suites. The accommodations in general are quite spread out over the property; so if you want to be near any given area (pool, dining) be sure to make that request. Some of the club rooms on the edge of the property are a 10-minute walk to the restaurants.

The Club rooms offer two bedrooms, a living area, mini-fridge, flat-screen TVs, AC and bathrobes.

Deluxe rooms are ideal for families of three to five people. There is one bedroom and a sitting area or children's bedroom area separated by a curtain.

Family Suites
While the Club and Deluxe rooms are more than adequate, and located in tasteful, brightly-colored low-rise buildings facing the ocean, it's the Family Suites that you'll write home about. Because Club Med's rates are comparatively affordable, it's well worth the extra splurge for these waterfront suites. With 750 square feet of space, you'll get two bedrooms with high-end decor and amenities, two gorgeous and spacious bathrooms (our master bath had a large bathtub and two separate sinks, and even the kids' bathroom looked like a spa ) as well as a large sitting area and a private terrace.

You'll also get a mini-fridge, coffee maker and an in-room computer with free Internet access. When staying in a family suite, you'll also get shuttled to the resort from the airport, and to your room from a separate check-in area at the resort, as well as access to a private (communal) infinity pool and concierge.
