Part of the Dominican Republic’s 30,000-acre Cap Cana enclave, Eden Roc is a Relais & Châteaux outpost that blends European glamour with Caribbean charm in the form of lush gardens, jewel-toned villas and one of the prettiest sugar-white sand strips on the island.
Bed & Bath
The 34 villas are positioned along a winding lagoon with a swim-up bar. Taking inspiration from the technicolor Caribbean palette, villas are painted in jewel tones and each has a private pool dotted with lounge chairs. Inside, rooms are done up in neutral creams and whites, with marble floors, enormous windows and bold accents. Mod cons include iPad-controlled lights, TV and sound system; coral stone baths; and free WiFi. Guests have access to electric golf carts for trips to nearby Eden Roc Beach Club, a members-only club that’s also open to Eden Roc guests.
The resort’s distinct restaurants are headed up by Gianluca Re Fraschini, and all the menus are inspired by the local Caribbean bounty. Through the breezy lobby is Mediterraneo, a spot for breakfast and dinner with European specialties imported from artisanal purveyors; and the Riva Bar, which reflects the retro glamour of its namesake boat Riva Aquarama (a 1960s Monte Carlo icon). La Palapa, the open-air restaurant at Caletón Beach, offers panoramic ocean views, and the menu includes lobster, fish, grilled octopus and ceviche. As the resort encompasses the Eden Roc Beach Club, guests can enjoy all the privileges at the members-only club, including the pool and spa. A highlight of the spa menu is the hourlong massage in the palapa on the beach, surrounded by ocean surf.
In the Area
Golfers from around the world flock to Punta Espada, an impossibly scenic Jack Nicklaus-designed course that wraps around the Eden Roc Beach Club and Eden Roc. Because Cap Cana isn’t as developed as neighboring Punta Cana, there’s still plenty of wilderness to explore, including craggy cliffs and pristine forests, both of which offer groomed hiking trails.
How to Get There
This is a very exclusive beautiful resort but very expensive. Your rate will only include your breakfast which is part buffet and also a la carte. They can cook you some wonderful eggs Benedict should you desire.
Accommodation is very nice...your own little villa with lush surroundings and can include your own private pool. Excellent linens, fabulous soaker tub and great bath products and lotions.
Lovely big pools also in the main resort area and a fine private white sand beach. A fabulous area to just chill out..no drunks, no pounding music...just tranquility.
This is the place if you really want to just have a quiet private time..honeymoon, escape a hectic job or just are fortunate enough to be rich.
You are provided with a golf cart to make your way around the resort or take a peek at the incredible golf course which is very close by.
Food and drinks are high quality too but once again expensive with tax and tip added in brings the cost up over 25%. Ouch.
Staff are also excellent knowing you by name. Feels very exclusive.
I think if you want an idea how the rich and famous live this could be the place for you.
I would give 5 stars, but I give only 4 just because of the over the top price to stay.
We had a great trip. The concierge was very difficult to work with pre-arrival. Once we got there they were great, but it did create some confusion and anxiety. The food and service on this property are amazing. Our room was beautiful, but had some kind of mold issue that bothered all four of us. We had a private dinner in the wine cellar on property that will go down in the history books.
This is the best resort I have ever stayed.
Totally private and relaxing villas with a golf cart for each villa.
The staffs are nice and I think they can remember each guest checked in their resort.
They are professional and efficient.
Only one little problem happened when we check out. The staff who helped us to check-in told us that the SPA coupon is $100/person, however, when we check-out, another staff told us it is $100/room. Long story short, we got the discount, but it will be much better if someone gave us the correct info at the beginning.
Amazing first time experience in Punta Cana! We were extremely impressed with Eden Roc's atmosphere. Ester, our concierge representative was fantastic and made our trip even more memorable by assisting us with our horse back riding trip and the beach! We absolutely loved it and would recommend to anyone traveling to Punta Cana. The only opportunity I would say needs improving would be to install an ATM within Eden Roc for the ease of guests. Other than that, we are so grateful to have experienced your property and the people relayed impeccable service! Amazing!
The service and food could not be better!!! The quality of the service could not be better. The food was wonderful and interesting. Everyone was very accommodating. The only problem I experienced was the inconsistency of the WiFi. Since I needed to be in touch with my office, the WiFi was not consistent.
