Winter may have arrived, but that doesn’t mean we have to put an end to the summer fun. School breaks are a great excuse to take the entire family on a memorable vacation to the islands, and the Dominican Republic is renowned for having fantastic all-inclusive vacations on some of the best beaches in the Caribbean. Punta Cana in particular has an excess of awesome resorts for families of every size and budget, and we found the all-inclusive properties with the biggest rooms, best deals, and outstanding amenities causing quite a stir with travelers of all ages!
Dreams Punta Cana
The Dreams properties have always been synonymous with family fun, but Dreams Punta Cana truly embodies that spirit. Activities abound throughout the property, starting with their massive free-form pool, which begins at the lobby and extends all the way to the beach. Parents can relax on the beach knowing the kids are safe and sound—and having a blast—in the Explorer’s Club, and teens can mingle in the Core Zone Teen Club. Adults can also take advantage of the babysitting service and enjoy a romantic evening with a delicious meal at one of the eight restaurants. When it’s time to spend time together as a family, everyone can join in on theme nights and movies on the beach!
