Less than eight miles from downtown Punta Cana, whala!bávaro is a secluded paradise with thatched-roof buildings bellying up to a private beach. The resort’s three outdoor pools are surrounded by large terraces, meaning there are always available sun loungers for obtaining the perfect Caribbean tan. Guests can hit the gym or book a spa treatment before strutting their stuff in swimsuits.
The all-inclusive rate includes three meals a day at the buffet, including the weekly barbecue with live music at the pool on Mondays. An a la carte dinner is served Tuesday through Sunday at Sueño Restaurant with a rotating menu of Mediterranean fare and Dominican cuisine in a relaxed Caribbean environment. Cocktails are also covered, and visitors have the choice from three bars, including one on the beach, with drinks starting as early as 10am.
The property has 157 rooms, including 25 suites. All accommodations include a fridge, satellite television, air conditioning and balconies.
