Club Med Punta Cana
This all-inclusive French-accented paradise -- Club Med's largest and most popular resort worldwide -- has been buffed with a recent renovation of its 553 rooms and 32 suites, plus a new Spa L'Occitane. Cuddled in a magnifique coconut grove, it boasts four pools and a half-mile-long beach. Friendly GOs (Genteel Organizers) are the life of this tropical party, rallying guests to join group activities. If snoozing on a chaise longue is more tempting than a Zumba class, that's encouraged too.
Bonus for Baby The Baby Welcome Program offers free use of baby bathtub, baby food, bottle warmer, high chair, and stroller, plus access to a 24-hour Baby Feeding Room stocked with mineral water, fruit, and more. At the Baby Club (for ages 4- to 23-months-old, $85 per day or $300 per week, closed Saturdays), caregivers play games and take tiny tots to a reserved beach zone and covered outdoor area.
Book it! Rates start at $999 per person, double occupancy, for a seven-night stay, which includes unlimited food, beverages (including alcohol), entertainment, and most sports; the spa is extra. Children younger than 4 stay and eat free; ClubMed.US/Punta-Cana.
