Have an anniversary coming up? Or just want to spice things up with your partner? Booking a hotel room with a cozy bed, scenic views, and two-person hot tub is a tried-and-true way to dial up the romance. While an adult-only resort or intimate boutique are good options, some hotels make rooms blatantly geared toward couples by calling them Romantic Suites. So instead of staying in a boring standard room, opt for one that has romance in the name -- it basically ensures you'll have a sexy getaway. Take a look at our favorite romantic suites (and one Lovers Suite, because, close enough) and get inspired to take that steamy vacation.

The 674-room Grand Palladium Bavaro is spread over spacious grounds (guests also have access to two sister properties) offering 15 bars, five buffets, and eight restaurants. Walking shoes are recommended, but family-friendly amenities, lower prices than some neighbors, and renovated rooms are the big draws. Romance Suites are closer to the beach and have large Mayan showers on an outdoor terrace attached to the already huge bathrooms. The swim-up suites facing the beach (with a private terrace and private swim-up pool) are the most romantic option, though.
