Whether you’re in the mood to relax or to mingle, CHIC by Royalton Resortsdoesn’t disappoint. The 323 rooms are sleek and modern, there are seven restaurants to choose from, and not one but two swim-up pool bars get the party started early. The poolside atmosphere skews more South Beach than Caribbean, with a private area reserved for guests who’ve booked a cabana for the day (or week) and a separate glass-walled mermaid pool where you can stay dry while taking in underwater views.

This adults-only getaway ranks near the top of almost every Punta Cana all-inclusive list. All five pools are beautifully designed and maximize ocean views, the seafood restaurant is excellent, and romantic thatch-roofed villas or honeymoon suites all come with their own private plunge pools. Along with a dreamy white-sand beach setting, guests are also treated to beach bonfires, kayaking and, for something different, cooking and Spanish lessons.

With a sugar-white beach as your backyard and lush vegetation everywhere, this luxury property offers a true Caribbean escape. Despite the size of this 460-room resort, an intimate, romantic feeling wins out at the restaurants, which range from Italian to Japanese to casual American. After days spent relaxing by the river pool or enjoying included activities like kayaking and sailing, try your luck at the on-site casino, then go for cocktails at one of 17 bars and lounges.
