Apart from the booked excursions there's little point in wandering outside the resort as there's nothing there. The plane was a typical cramped AirTours and with 9 hours flying I think next time we'll avoid the package type tour to this area.
We stayed at the Fiesta Bavaro which is in the Punta Cana area, South East of the Dominican Republic island. The resort was huge and had every facility you could wish for including day and evening entertainment. Everything was kept immaculate including our rooms. The resort largely consists of 2 storey apartments and with numerous bars, swimming pools, tennis courts etc. you are never far from anything - including the beach which was a 3 minute walk. This side of the island is next to the Atlantic and although the waves looked as cold as Blackpool it was actually very warm. The excursions were plentiful and the speedboats and a day in the Caribbean sea was just perfect! We never seemed to make it back in time to book at a restaurant but then the buffets did have a huge variety - (I missed having a decent steak though!). This Hotel is 'all inclusive' and not having to be constantly shelling out for the kids 'can I haves' was a real blessing. However, the island staff do like their tips and if you're a softy for that, and if you want super quick service then keep a lot of change handy! We also walked around the Paradise Hotel a mile or so down the beach. It looked 'posher' than our resort but the complex was so large you had to jump on one of their 'tram' style buses to get to the beach etc. On the whole, we would highly recommend this particular part of the island and our resort
