The Dominican Republic is an island with many all inclusive resorts in several areas. Punta Cana is a prime beach area on the DR's eastern tip, with long beautiful beaches, many resorts, and a handy small international airport.

Dreams is a well-known brand of all inclusive resorts with properties in Mexico and the DR. Dreams is part of AMResorts, which also has the Secrets brand for couples.

Dreams Punta Cana has a beautiful beach that stretches for miles in either direction. However the resort's location is more toward the north (Atlantic) coast, and the sea may be too rough for swimming. (Resorts further south tend to have calmer seas.) Meanwhile, the resort has a very long meandering pool, called the "Lazy River" pool (though it's not the type of "lazy river" that has a current that carries swimmers along on floats.) Another pool is located at the kids' Explorers Club, which has activities for kids age 3 to 12, and on-site fun such as a pirate ship, castle, theater, snack area, and waterslide.
