Beach Vacation in Punta Cana

We just got back from the most fantastic beach trip to Punta Cana. We stayed at The Reserve at Paradisus, which is a family friendly, all-inclusive resort. It was perfect for us because not only were my parents there, but also my two sweet little nephews. Normally, I'm not really one for all-inclusive resorts, but I actually really enjoyed the food and drinks available at The Reserve. Here were the highlights of our trip:

1. The beach- The beach was absolutely amazing! Clear water, shallow enough for playing, deep enough for some exploring and TONS of chairs with shades. We spent a lot of time enjoying the beach. Twenty mimosas and pina coladas later, it was time to visit the pools.

2. The pools- The Reserve has a really unique pool setup where there is a kids area, but also two other pools that allow you to sort of swim throughout the resort. Some of the rooms actually walk right out to the beautiful pools. We enjoyed swimming, exploring and spending time in the pools.

3. The restaurants- The restaurants for dinner were actually really good for an all-inclusive resort! Servers were on point and we enjoyed steaks, Mexican food, hibachi and Mediterranean!

4. Being together- The best part of a family vacation for me is always being together!!

Are you headed on a family vacation this summer?
