Punta Cana Recap

I can't even begin to describe how much I miss Punta Cana! Can someone please take me back there NOW!?

We stayed at the Majestic Colonial on the club side (adults only side) and I can't say enough amazing things about the resort. The resort itself was amazing... everything from the staff to the room to the beach to the pools to the food and the always flowing drinks. Speaking of the drinks.. they weren't typical all-inclusive resort drinks they actually made them right and not watered down. Fantastic!

I felt like we got so much more at this resort than any other resort we've ever stayed at in the past. We upgraded to a club room which honestly wasn't that much more expensive especially for all the extras it includes. Club rooms are on the adults only side of the resort which is new and has 2 adults only pools with swim up bars and day beds to lounge on. There's also an adults only beach with it's own beach bar and servers who come out to your palapa. Perfection! We had a jacuzzi tub in the room which our butler (yes I said butler!) drew a bubble bath for us in one night. We also had 4 liquor bottles and a bottle of champagne in our room free of charge, access to the club lounge which was always stocked with hot and cold food, more booze, water bottles, an espresso machine, free wifi, pretty much the works! Staying on the club side also meant private check in and check out where we were greeted with a freshly popped bottle of champagne and were escorted by our butler to our room. Amazing doesn't even describe the whole experience.

Champagne was the theme at the resort it felt like. We had mimosas every morning at breakfast and were greeted with a glass every night before being seated at dinner. And as soon as you looked like you were half way done, they came by to refill your glass.

Another bonus was that the beer served at the resort was Presidente which H really liked. He was bummed last year in Jamaica that he didn't like the beer which was Red Stripe.

I am very unhappy to report that even though I strongly advise practicing safe sun, that both H and I got burned. I used SPF 50 on my face and even reapplied and still fried. I spent a lot of time under the palapa on the beach or the day bed at the pool but the sun there is no joke! If you're heading there, definitely stock up on sunscreen, beach hats, and aloe for afterwards. 

Hands down, this trip was our favorite trip to date. We've been to some amazing places, but the whole experience of this trip from the resort to the beach to the food and the service made this trip our fav :)


  1. amazing!!! i would LOVE to visit there! looks like an amazing trip!

  2. Looks UH-MAZING! If THIS doesnt convince my husband...I don't know what will! It sounds SO much like our honeymoon, which was in Playa Mujeres...and was our favorite trip ever! Going to do some serious talking like NOW! ;)

    Thanks so much for tweeting me about your review! I've been SO behind on reading blogs I would have been SO upset if I wouldn't have read this!
