“One of our branch’s best-selling properties, this resort offers excellent value in Punta Cana. The beach does have some rocky areas, but it’s easy to navigate when the water is calm. It’s great for walking, with plenty of shade and excellent bar service under your palapa. You’ll love the lazy river and the pool area with swim-up bar, and there are some fab a la cartes on-site too!” – Denise Matheson, Maritime Travel agent, Halifax Shopping Centre, Halifax, NS


Take the plunge (and save a few dollars) by bringing your own floatie or blow-up noodle for the lazy river and swim-up bar.
