My girlfriend and I and planning a vacation to Punta Cana and are trying to select a resort by need some help. We're going for a generally relaxing vacation and were looking at Sanctuary Cap Cana but are worried about the lack of activities/entertainment. We don't need activity after activity but some music in the evening or a casino would be nice. We are evening people and typically go to bed late so a place with bars open later (12-1am) would be good. Looking for a a mid level to upper tier resort (luxury is nice but not absolutely necessary, budget is flexible). Here's a few preferences we have:
No reservations at the restaurant
Less crowded, no real issues with the towel game (we're not morning people and on vacation)
Potential for dinner for two on the beach
Waiter service for drinks by the pool/beach
Are there any resorts that allow you to reserve beach chairs/bali beds/etc ahead of time? Did a little reading and so far we're leaning towards Excellence, PPR and Catalonia Royal. Any suggestion?
