Take a look at the best luxury hotels in Uvero Alto.
Built in 2016, the four-pearl Sensatori Resort Punta Cana is among Punta Cana’s newest and chicest adult-oriented all-inclusive resorts. The long list of amenities: a semi-private beach, 10 restaurants, several bars, an indoor/outdoor spa, and an open-air theater -- are designed to encourage guests to never leave the grounds. The 252 rooms and suites are bright and bold with Midcentury Modern decor and they come with large flat-screen TVs, swanky bathrooms, and private balconies (with optional ocean views and swim-up layouts). However, unregulated overflow from the neighboring, family-friendly Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana can put a damper on the otherwise romantic atmosphere and past guests have complained that Premium Rooms aren't worth the upgrade. For slightly higher rates, Excellence Punta Cana offers similar amenities in a sleeker and more sophisticated package -- without any kids in sight (or earshot).
The four-and-a-half-pearl Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is the area’s brightest and quirkiest family-centric all-inclusive resort. Kids and parents who grew up with the in-your-face cable network will immediately recognize its signature bright orange motif and blimp figurines. But, decor manages to look more luxuriously modern than tacky. Features here are outrageously fun: a huge water park, character breakfasts, and daily lottery to get slimed. Parents can drop their kids at Just Kidding for supervised activities, and then relax at the adult-only pool and spa. All 208 bold rooms feature kid-centric amenities and optional swim-up access. One luxe villa is shaped like SpongeBob's under-the-sea pineapple home. The major downside is that the ocean is often too rough for kids to swim. For lower rates, the Family Club at Barceló Bávaro Palace Deluxe offers a calmer beach and emphasis on kids' activities.
Excellence El Carmen is a luxury adult-only resort with a youthful and hip vibe that sits along an idyllic beach in Punta Cana’s laid-back Uvero Alto. Its 492 modern suites have sophisticated interiors plus features like free bottles of liquor and glass-enclosed whirlpool tubs overlooking private balconies. Some rooms add semi-private swim-up pools or completely private rooftop pools. Excellence Club upgrades come with private lounge and restaurant access and even posher rooms. All-inclusive rates include meals at 11 restaurants (including a taco truck and juice bar) plus 24-hour room service and activities like snorkeling. There are multiple fun bars, a full-service spa with a free thermal suite, and swish gym with free personal training sessions. If you'd prefer a more classic Caribbean beachfront all-inclusive with similar amenities, rates are comparable at the nearby sister resort: Excellence Punta Cana.
