It’s never been easier to travel around the world by yourself. With flights booked in a couple of minutes from your phone, the world is in the palm of our hands! And of course, with so many people traveling solo, you don’t have to discover this globe by yourself. Do you have a serious case of wanderlust? Looking for great places to stay while you’re traveling to Punta Cana? We list a couple of options for your inspiration: from hostels to resorts. Find the 5 best hotels for solo travelers below!

GAVA hostel

Looking for a home away from home? With only 2 rooms, GAVA hostel is a small, family-owned hostel where you can relax and make friends. You can either choose a private or shared room, depending on your privacy needs. The beach is only a 10 minute walk away, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars in the area. But if you want a relaxed night in, it’s possible to whip up your own dinner in the communal area.  The owners are friendly and helpful, so if you need tips for places to go, be sure to let them know!

Princess All Suites Resorts & Spa

Do you have some more money to spend? Then this resort might be something for you. As a smaller, cosier resort, the Princess All Suites Resorts & Spa is a great place to both relax and meet new people. The surroundings are lush and green, which makes you feel you’re in Caribbean paradise. And while you’re chatting away with your new friends, you can sip on some excellent juices and cocktails, and enjoy a true Dominican dinner (or fries and burgers, if that’s what you’re craving). The staff is super friendly and welcoming, so you’ll feel right at home.

Bavaretto Ocean Club

Lodges are a great option if you’re not into hostels or resorts. Bavaretto Ocean Club has spacious and clean apartments with a kitchen and washing machine included. This is one of the best hotels for solo travelers who love to experience the authentic, local life. Chat to other travelers while you take a dip in the pool, or go out and about and stumble upon some merengue dancing or domino playing people there. With the beach, restaurants and plenty of activities around your apartment, you’ll be right in the heart of Punta Cana!

Hotel Sweet Home Punta Cana

Another home away from home, this time in a homestay. Yes, Hotel Sweet Home Punta Cana is situated on a top rated location, close to the Bavaro beach, nightlife and excursions. And yes, you get great value for the price. But take one look at the roses surrounding the cute front gate and the lovely balconies and you’re sold! Relax on the private beach or in the terraced garden, or read a book in your hammock. And best of all: meet some lovely people during one of the themed dinner nights or sign up for a tour or class about local culture! Interested in homestays?

Majestic Colonial Punta Cana

Feeling royal? Well, look no further. The Majestic Colonial Punta Cana is one of the best hotels for solo travelers who have big money to spend. Everything is being taken care of, so you’ll get the pampered holiday you’ve always wished for. Plus, plenty of people to meet! The pools have swim-up bars, there is nightly entertainment and the beach is a small walk away. Eat some great food while you’re looking out on the ocean, and dance the night away with your new friends.
