 Newlyweds usually stay in the Deluxe Suite, which has a private balcony.
For what you get -- a beautiful setting, great service, and food that is far superior to what you get at most of the all-inclusive resorts -- the Punta Cana Hotel's prices are very fair. And unlike at the all-inclusive resorts, most wedding details are up to you -- a great advantage, if you want a personal touch and don't mind a little extra legwork. Read more about weddings at the Punta Cana Hotel La Yola restaurant, a popular reception site, costs $2,000 and can fit up to 100 people. Plated, sit-down dinners range from $45 to $48, and buffets range from $39 to $59 -- less than what food costs at some of the all-inclusives. Newlyweds usually stay in the Deluxe Suite, which has a private balcony. The hotel's huge beach enjoys shallow, calm water with only negligible seaweed and fine, smooth white sand. There are few guests, so finding quiet place to relax is easy. Straightforward options, minimal fees, and top-notch beach and spa facilities make the Sanctuary Cap Cana a solid (and easy) luxury choice.

The wide, white-sand beach that gently slopes to the ocean is among the D.R.'s best, but ceremonies here aren't private (as is the case at most Dominican resorts). The large, lagoon-shaped infinity pool overlooks the beach and has some of the cleanest water we've seen in the D.R. This quiet, adult-only resort offers standard wedding package fare, but with fewer options (though less hassle) than some of its neighbors.

Most newlyweds stay in a Junior Suite or an Oceanfront Suite, which have large, two-person Jacuzzi tubs decorated with towel swans and flower petals. The pool is centrally located on the hotel grounds, but it still feels private. The beautiful restaurants and outdoor spaces make this a picturesque place to tie the knot, and the package options are easy and plentiful. Read more about weddings at the Melia Caribe Tropical Ceremonies in the White Garden Gazebo don't cost extra, but ceremonies take place in full view of other guests -- as they do at all of the resort's ceremony locations. The spa offers bridal hair and makeup for $150, just hair for $45, and a mani/pedi for $100. Most newlyweds stay in a Honeymoon Deluxe Junior Suite or a Royal Service Master Suite (both have a private balcony and a Jacuzzi).
