Hotel Riu Palace Punta Cana 3.5

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
The top resort in a sprawling, five-hotel complex, the 612-room Riu Palace Punta Cana has access to some excellent pools, top-notch liquor, and a gorgeous, though especially crowded, beach. For the price, the rooms and food are subpar. Opt for nearby (and cheaper) Barcelo Premium Punta Cana instead.
