This from a reader:
Hi, got any feedback on the Club Med in Punta Cana? I have heard that the childrens [sic] clubs are great but the food isn't brilliant and it is expensive. We like the fact that it is a relatively short flight from BWI. Any advice would be appreciated or if you have any other ideas for family vacation resorts requiring only 1 flight.
Many Thanks, Lucy
While Punta Cana is still on my "must go" list, I'm getting great feedback from families (and personal friends) who have been. Some like to stay at the all-inclusive resorts- the most popular one there being Club Med while I have also heard good things about the Ocean Blue Golf and Beach Resort.
Friends have really enjoyed it and said it was great for their kids (aged 6-14). Don't forget the kiddie passports! You'll need them, and if you plan on stepping off the resort premises, you might want to brush up on your Spanish.
