You came to the Dominican Republic for sun, sea and relaxation. Be honest. Sometimes, you don’t even make it to the beach. Lying down on a stretcher or comfy chair next to the pool with a book or a cocktail is all you want. Some splashing, some napping, a little water fun! These are the top pool hotels in Punta Cana.

Sirenis Punta Cana & Aquagames

Sirenis Punta Cana has water in its name: sirens are female creatures singing sailors to the waves (let’s not go into deadly details), according to Greek mythology. This pool hotel in Punta Cana is located in the north, near Macao Beach, and is very special to families of water lovers. This hotel owns its own water park! The Aquagames park is on-site and features many cool slides, a 10 meter high tower with 2 water tubes, aquaracer speed slides, a Caribbean pirates themed children’s area, a free fall twister and many smaller pools for different age groups. Next to this 12.000 square meter waterpark, the Sirenis hotel itself has four more pools. Including a pool bar, poolside service, a whirlpool and a lifeguard. What are you waiting for? You don’t even have to watch your children. Definetely one the childfriendly pool hotels in Punta Cana.

Cool feature: Has water park on-site

Hard Rock Hotel and Casino

We mentioned the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino before, we know. This is one of the coolest pool hotels in Punta Cana. It’s one for water AND music lovers – the Hard Rock has 13 pool options, all with different music playing. A soundtrack per pool, you could say. Of these 13, 3 are especially for kids and feature slides. Then there are 4 pools that are adults-only and come with swim-up bars. There is a Sax pool for some peace ‘n quiet and, you guessed it, good jazz. We spotted whirlpools and lazy rivers too, but the most risqué part? One of the pools, appropriately named Eden, is clothing-optional. So you can splash around in your nudie costume. Fun!

Cool feature: A nude pool option

Eden Roc

From sassy rock star parties, we’re heading to exclusive secluded luxury with Eden Roc, the beautiful boutique option in Cap Cana. When we talked about Eden Roc before, we were obsessed with its tranquility. And yes, that translates itself into water fun, too! Isolated water fun, we might add. This boutique pool hotel in Punta Cana comes with 34 beautiful suites who all own a private pool. Next to this, there are two main pools: one in the main area of the resort and one in the Eden Roc Beach Club. Do we need to say the word infinity pool, or are you booking already?

Cool feature: Private pools for everyone, baby!

Pool count: 34 suites, 34 pools. Plus two main ones.

Breathless Punta Cana

Breathless Punta Cana prides itself on being lively, active, gay-friendly and luxurious! It’s new, it’s fresh and a great pool hotel in Punta Cana for making new friends at one of the many pool parties. Or, you know, relax. This hotel comes with eight different type pools, including a large main one, a multi-level freestyle pool (we’re very curious about this one), four nice and quiet ones and two exclusive club member pools. There are adults-only options, an infinity pool, whirlpools and a lazy river. All for you to socialise and relax in. A deck chair, a friendly waiter and a towel are all you need. A good option for those who like a contemporary interior and a few options, but nothing too crazy.

Secrets Royal Beach

To be honest, when we had to choose a pool hotel in Punta Cana from this list, our eyes stopped on this option. Secrets Royal Beach. We mentioned this one last week, as being a great nightlife hotel, but we HAVE to talk about its awesome pool too! Are you ready? This hotel owns a grand lazy river winding its watery ways all across the property. Some of the rooms have immediate access to this lazy river, so that means that you can roll from your bed, open your suite door and plunge into the lazy river. Bed, sun, pool. There’s no better life.

Cool feature: Lazy river that you can access from your room

Pool count: 1 windy one
