Best Kid-Friendly Hotels in Punta Cana

Most Dominican resorts say they're great for kids, but some hotels just take that extra step with kid-friendly pools, calm waves at the beach, supervised activities, cribs, and rooms large enough for a family. Here's a list of where to stay in Punta Cana if you want to make it through your trip tantrum-free!

Dreams Punta Cana Resort and Spa


Dreams Punta Cana Resort and Spa Rating: 3.5 Pearls

In addition to one of the most expansive pools in the D.R., Dreams offers extensive child- and teen-oriented amenities. The Explorers' club offers a full schedule of activities for young children, such as nature tours and "Looking for Shells and Snails" from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. The kids club has large indoor and outdoor play areas and also offers childcare. For teens, the resort staff hosts organized sporting events, and there's even a "teen disco" at night. There's also an active lifeguard on duty on the beach.

Majestic Elegance Punta Cana - Luxury All Inclusive


Majestic Elegance Punta Cana - Luxury All Inclusive Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Majestic has a kids club with a mini-castle and a waterslide. There's also a game area with billiards and foosball. Popular evening activities include highlights such as magic shows. But as at any Dominican resort, the beautiful, long-spanning pool is what kids will love most.

Melia Caribe Tropical


Melia Caribe Tropical Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Melia Caribe features a Flintstones-themed kids club with boulders and dinosaurs aplenty as well as an elaborate Flintstones pool, complete with colorful play structures, waterslides, and animal-print lounge chairs. But the main highlight of this resort is its massive, 450-square-foot family suite, which comes with two pull-out sofa beds that have "themed children's bedding" in addition to a big bed for parents.

Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort And Spa


Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort And Spa Rating: 4.0 Pearls

The Grand Palladium is popular among everyone from young honeymooners to retirees, but families are particularly drawn to its incredible pools and excellent beach. The resort features 51 "family suites," which are junior suites connected to deluxe rooms (accommodating about six in all). Pay-Per-View kids movies are available in all rooms, and there are parental-control options for the TVs, plus Nintendo 64 games ($10.75 per hour). There are also four separate kids clubs: the baby club (ages 1-3), mini-club (ages 3-5), maxi-club (ages 6-11), and juniors club (ages 12-18). This means that tweens will never get stuck at an ice-cream party with 5-year-olds. The black-and-white juniors club features a huge array of video games.
