Punta Cana is a beautiful variety. Couples, solo travelers, groups of friends and families – they all seek the lovely sights of our town. This one is for the parents. We’ve focused on good kid friendly resorts, and apartments in Punta Cana. Where your kid can go to town, but you can have your relaxing moments too. So that no one’s pulling each other’s hair on the flight back. You’re welcome.

Kid friendly resorts: The Nickelodeon

The Nickelodeon is a familiar name that will definitely excite your kid – but don’t worry, it will come with all the luxury for you, too. This hotel & resort complex really is one for all the ages. From the aqua playground (with actual green Nickelodeon slime) to the deluxe spa, everyone can comfortably apply snail cream here. This five-star resort comes with 208 suites, all bringing a playful interior to appeal to the entire family. From colorful slides to breakfasts with Spongebob and Dora for the kids and personalized service, massage decks overlooking the Caribbean Sea, more than 12 on-site restaurants and bars AND a grand sports facility for the adults, you’re fully set here in Uvero Alto Beach, Punta Cana.

Water fun at Memories Splash Punta Cana

Let your kids splash around in the waterpark. One of our favorites amongst the kid friendly resorts in the area. Memories Splash Punta Cana is known for its Splash Waterpark. The 7 slides will keep your little ones busy. At the Kids Club, kids can enjoy cartoons, games, and playgrounds. If you want to find your inner child too, you can play minigolf, table tennis and trivia games with your whole family! No dull moments in this place. And if you want to do a water activity with other adults, try the introductory scuba lesson. Memories Splash Punta Cana is located on Highway Macao, Playa Arena Gorda, in Bavaro

Family home: Airbnb household

Home away from home at Nancy’s is actually an Airbnb, and we’re including it because we think you should definitely consider smaller-scale sleeps for your family vacay to Punta Cana! The positive of an Airbnb is that the host took care of a one-of-a-kind apartment especially for you, and they can give you local tips! Nancy’s place is great for sporty families! A beautiful 2-story house, located next to a golf course, with a patio looking out over a sunny world of grass. Perfect for your kids to run around, splash about in the pool or discover the strange plants in the Tropical Garden. For adults there is a golf course at hand, bicycles (a kid’s one, too) to explore the island on, and so many water sports in the nearby area! Parasailing, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, you name it. Also handy? That pizza place across from your new holiday home. Some nights are just made for pizzas on balconies. Oh. And there’s someone picking you and your fam up from the airport. So you can focus on spending time with your loved ones.    

Everyone together: Costa Hermosa 202

Costa Hermosa 202  is a huge apartment complex with the feel of a cute area, especially for those families who are a bit more DIY. Isn’t it nice to be in one gorgeous apartment, together with the entire fam? These apartments aren’t lacking in anything, either. Stunning light bedrooms (plus possible baby cot), a big living room with an 8 person table to all enjoy breakfast together, TWO balconies facing the huge pool on the facility, a grill for homemade family BBQs and a private jacuzzi. Perfect to end the day in, sharing stories and catching bubbles. Costa Hermosa offers many things to do on the premises, but if you wanna grab a wave with the kids, Bávaro beaches are only a short walk away. This kid friendly complex is the perfect mix: pamper yourself with a luxurious home, but choose your own family adventures. You’re in the center of Bávaro, where there’s an abundance of things to do!
