Cap Cana, one of the DR’s most popular vacation playgrounds, just got sexier with this 115-suite newcomer, set on Marina Cap Cana and featuring terrific oceanfront views from every vantage point. Expect chic, streamlined decor with a subtly retro edge — think Danish Modern–inspired wooden chairs, desks and wall dividers; jaunty Lilly Pulitzer–style textiles; and playful light fixtures. There are also luxurious upgrades, such as suites with swim-up pool access. In keeping with the resort’s global outlook, you won’t be experiencing anything particularly Dominican when dining at any of the three themed restaurants, which showcase Mexican and “international” cuisine, along with a beachfront grill. There’s a funky coffee bar that wouldn’t be out of place in Seattle or Brooklyn, plus three cocktail bars that range from sophisticated to sports bar. Brush up on your Español with Spanish lessons, try your hand at beach volleyball, or join one of the regular beach bonfire parties; the roster even includes wine tastings and cooking lessons. Golfers will be in seventh heaven thanks to the proximity of the Punta Espada Golf Club, which has a Jack Nicklaus Signature course that is one of the highest-ranked in the Caribbean.
In the Area
While there are plenty of distractions available at the resort itself, there are also any number of things to tempt adventure-seeking vacationers at the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic, where the Caribbean meets the Atlantic Ocean. Head to Macao Beach, a stretch of sand often voted one of the world’s best beaches for surf camp, where everyone from beginners to old hands looking to brush up on their skills can hit the waves. At Scape Park, meanwhile, the opportunities for the intrepid are boundless, from ziplining and caving to visiting Hoyo Azul, a gorgeous cenote at the foot of a cliff. Cap off the day with cocktails and dancing at Drink Point, a lively bar in Bavaro, Punta Cana, where you can dance to everything from merengue to hip-hop while mingling with locals.
How to Get There
Myself, my husband and friends went on a day pass to the adult only TRS Cap Cana when we were visiting another resort in Punta Cana. We had heard a lot about this resort, so we wanted to check it out while we were in the area and it did not disappoint. We had fantastic service while we were there enjoying some pool time, lunch and drinks. We also got a tour of the rooms.
First of all, I’ll tell you a little bit about the Cap Cana area. Cap Cana is located on the most eastern part of the Dominican Republic and is only 10 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport. The whole Cap Cana area is essentially a gated community because in order to gain access to Cap Cana, you must pass through security. Notable features of this destination include the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course, Punta Espada, ecotourism adventures, international fishing tournaments, luxury yachting charters, polo fields and a natural theme park called Scape Park. Upscale resorts are also in Cap Cana.
TRS Cap Cana has been open for a year now and is a boutique resort with 115 luxury suites. Most of these suites are ocean view. We were able to see a junior suite, a junior swim up suite and a suite. They were all very spacious, gorgeous and very clean. The suite has an amazing wrap around balcony with a bali bed and fantastic views.
Upon arrival at the resort we noticed that they have their own security at the entrance where you must check in.
There are two large pools on site. One pool is more of a quiet pool and the other has a swim up bar where the POP (People of Palladium) Team is there to keep you entertained with music and activities.
TRS Cap Cana has a small beach area with some bali beds and lounge chairs. A seaweed barrier has been placed in the quiet bay area so there are no concerns about seaweed. If you prefer to go to a bigger beach area, TRS Cap Cana does provide a shuttle over to nearby Juanilla beach.
There are four restaurants at TRS Cap Cana. Capricho, Helios Beach Bar, El Gaucho and during peak season, part of the Helios Beach Bar will be turned into Tentiazone which is an Italian al la carte. El Gaucho is an Argentinian steak house and Izakaya is Japanese with a hint of Peruvian influence. They try to source as much local food as possible for their restaurants, for example, fresh pasta and fish.
Xtra Time Sports Bar is at the resort as well. Look for special events going on throughout the sporting season, for example, the Superbowl. A coffee shop is also located in the lobby area and offers many different hot and cold coffee beverages.
You may also want to visit Zentropia Spa or the gym here at the resort.
Chic Cabaret will be opening at TRS Turquesa in Punta Cana in December and once this happens there will be a shuttle so TRS Cap Cana guests can enjoy the show. It’s only a half hour drive from TRS Cap Cana to TRS Turquesa. Chic Cabaret is a dinner theatre where you will be treated to dinner during a show which includes a variety of music with singers, dancers and acrobatics.
This is a fantastic boutique resort which is only 10 minutes from the airport (and not once did we ever hear an airplane flying overhead). Because it’s a smaller, intimate resort, staff get to know you by name and are able to provide you with excellent service. If you are looking rest and relaxation, this is the resort for you. We will definitely be back to stay for a vacation next time. If you have any questions, feel free to message me through Trip Advisor and I’ll do my best to help you out.
The best vacation ever! The experience was awesome and all the staff was very welcoming. Bayron took care of all of our needs. The drinks and food was amazing. The swim up pool was also great. Will definitely be coming back
What can I say. BAYRON WAS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Moms trip for myself and my 2 friends. Property located on private space with security. We had a swim up suite which was beautiful. The food was great and the service was even better. Lovely pool. We didnt visit the beach so cant speak to that but the resort is top notch. Jose Luis kept us dancing and bartenders Antonio at Helios and Angelica at the Lobby Bar made the best drinks. The room was clean and spacious. We will definitely be coming back to TRS Cap Cana.
