An inside look at happening hotels and recent renovations.

Grand Memories Resort & Spa

Grand Memories Resort & Spa
Where: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
When: November 2018
Why We Love: If the name doesn’t say it, the experience will. Vacation memories were made for this newly re-opened resort with its lush tropical landscape, endless hours of water park fun featuring seven thrill-seeking water slides, plus the bonus of playing at the Royalton Punta Cana.

Ocean El Faro

Ocean El Faro
Location: Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Royalton Antigua Resort & Spa

Sunscape Star Cancun

Paradisus Playa Mujeres

Paradisus Playa Mujeres

Why We Love: When adults need a getaway, but want family memories too, look no further. Local art throughout the hotel and cuisine prepared with fresh local produce immerse you in the culture, while a family concierge and a host of kid-focused amenities– even a kid-friendly mini bar– keep everyone involved.
