This was our first trip to Punta Cana and will not be our last. We loved the condo, it was perfect for 2 people. The beach out front is so awesome, there is alot of all inclusive in the area but I would never stay there. Here we could do what we wanted and walk every where and never felt like we were in a tourist trap. The grounds were maintained around the area and we felt totally safe! You could walk to the best restaurants ever, Nam Nam, Citrus, Beaches, Balicona are a must! If you want seclusion and comfort without the crowds experience renting a condo on the beach. The owner was so easy to work with, we were picked up from the airport and taken back to the airport. We relaxed and did not take part in the activities that are offered in the area. There is alot to do if you want to or you be a beach bum like us and people watch and enjoy the weather. It was a pleasant 82 degrees every day with a breeze at the ocean. The pools were not heated so we didn't swim but there was a nice swim up bar and a sweet waiter that would serve you on the beach! We cannot wait to go back!!
