Overview

A fun, family-friendly beach escape for kids and kids at heart, with a "gourmet-inclusive" suite

The Lowdown

Whether you’re a kid or a kid at heart, Nickelodeon Hotels & Resorts Punta Cana is here to help you have fun. It’s a place where you can choose between playing tennis; mingling with Spongebob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and more; learning to cook or speak Spanish; floating in an infinity pool; and taking a class at a designated dance studio. There’s even a club for four-to-12-year-olds, with its own ball pit, plus a water park crowned by a giant orange blimp – and indeed, you’ll be feeling a bit like you just won a Kids Choice Award.
The Karisma getaway states that “it’s slime o’clock somewhere” – getting drenched in the signature green goo is part of the experience – but there is also a way to be a grown-up here, when you feel so inclined. Receiving a therapy at the spa, for instance, which holds a sensory pool and herbal steam room, or washing off under your suite’s luxurious rainforest showerhead. And while you may choose to walk the Orange Carpet after dark, you’d be forgiven for sneaking off to the Elite Traveler-approved retreat’s adults-only restaurant or wine bar instead. After all, you can’t have Nick alone, without a little Nick at Nite.

Suites

Get comfy in a spacious suite, holding a radio/alarm-clock docking station with Bluetooth; a balcony with a sitting area; and a marble bathroom with a double sink, a freestanding tub and a rain shower. If you do want to watch some Nick shows, there’s also a 42-in. smart TV.Flat suites measure 603 square feet, which includes a master suite and a living room with a pull-out sofa bed and dining-room area. You can opt to stay in a Swim-Up version of theses abodes, which offers direct access to the pool from its terrace. Swank suites, which measure 517 square feet, hold their own private plunge pool on their spacious wrap-around balcony.

Dining

You’ll be staying on a gourmet-inclusive basis, meaning that top-notch food and drink are covered. Choose whether you’d prefer buffet or à la carte fare, meals or snacks (including tasty ice-cream cones) and a welcome Slime Smoothie or sparkling wine. Cuisine runs from Mediterranean to Asian fusion and beyond, with several drinking and dining options adults only. Please note that varying dress codes are politely enforced across the dining spots.

Spa

Measuring 14,000 square feet, Vassa Spa is a relaxing wellness destination that’s tailored to the needs of both children and adults. Its treatments include Thai-atsu Shiatsu-Thai fusion massages and raindrop Ayurvedic therapies, and its amenities run from a sensory pool to an herbal steam room, dry sauna, bubble bed and chromotherapy shower. Couples rooms are available, along with massage cabanas with thatched roofs and Caribbean views.

Location

Offering miles of white-sand beaches, fairways designed by professional golfers and the thrill of tropical outdoor adventure, Punta Cana is rich in Caribbean leisure. Lounge by the waves, go zip lining, dance to Dominican music, explore the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park, or browse local shops and boutiques. And leave some time to embrace the beach-bumming lifestyle, and do nothing at all; the shores here are known for their turquoise waters and soft, sugar-white sands. Plus, you’ll have buckets of fun (and possibly slime) staying on-site, thanks to the water park; tennis facilities; and cooking, dance, Spanish and aqua-aerobic classes – along with possible run-ins with Dora and Spongebob.
