I've been to Punta Cana twice before, visiting Secrets Royal Beach & Majestic Elegance Club. We enjoyed both, but we like to mix it up. Don't really want to be at a mega resort, as we don't like fighting the crowds for shade, limited a la cartes, etc. Would prefer rooms that aren't run down and air conditioned dining.

We just spent a week at Bavaro Princess. Big bang for the buck, nice and clean bungalows, great food (surprised me!), and plenty of loungers in sun and shade both on the beach and poolside. Quiet areas for relaxing as well as really hopping entertainment. They have a team system in place that consistently run every 10 mins to from lobby to beach but the walk is very doable and in doing so, lots of sightseeing and picture ops on the route.

We really enjoyed Catalonia Royal and Punta Cana Princess. Rooms newly renovated last year at PCP but not a lot of air conditioned dining unless you go next door to family resorts. Cat Royal has great dining in air conditioning but rooms a bit more dated. But we were fine with ours. We liked the food a lot at cat royal.

Excellence Punta Cana. I'm sitting in a cabana bed here right now, right between the pool and the beach. 9 a la cartes, no reservations, and no limitations.

Lots of loungers, palapas, and cabanas by the pool and on the beach. Only 450 rooms, and no trams. All rooms are close to the beach and all amenities. Premium liquor, outstandind service.

6 of the restaurants are air conditioned, and 2 of the open air restaurants are by the beach with a cooling breeze. All of the rooms were recently renovated.
