Luxury is in the air at this all-inclusive resort on the D.R.’s eastern coast. The open-air lobby has a soaring peaked thatch roof, and with just 51 suites divided between a two-story thatched building and freestanding villas, privacy is given primacy. The resort takes all inclusive to the next level by giving guests “Endless Privileges” — think gourmet dining (no buffets), daily fruit basket, top-shelf booze and one spa treatment per stay. Three on-site restaurants draw culinary inspiration from tradition around the globe; Olena has European flair while Amaya mixes Dominican fare with international preparations and Indigo keeps it healthy with light fare. Not feeling like going out? No worries, the resort offers in-suite dining all day long.
In the Area
Travelers up for an adventure should explore some of the best beaches in the world on this island, namely Playa Cabo Engaño, Playa del Macao (surfers rejoice), and Playa El Cortecito. No need to rent a car; taxis are inexpensive and plentiful, and El Cortecito even has a water taxi. Be sure to stick around at this bustling beach town for fresh seafood and local artisan vendors.

Zoetry stay. Dec. 2 - 9, 2018
This was my first stay at a Zoetry resort but not my first stay with AM Resorts. I chose the Zoetry Agua in Punta Cana for its size, a smaller resort.
Let's start with the the transportation from the airport to the hotel. Myself and my wife were transported via mini van alone which was good, no additional stops. The trip took @ 45 minutes.
Check in went well but the room wasn't ready yet. Read the horror stories of long waits. But after lunch and a quick drink in the lobby our room was ready. Ok!
Our room was a jr suite pool view. I was pleased with the room. King bed with a nice room setup. Just one issue with the room, the bed was as four poster bed so when I was in bed and tried to watch TV at night the post just happened to be right in the middle of the TV. There claim or restocking the mini fridge every day didn't ring true.
The rooms have a iPad type of informational kiosk. You can get resort information on just about anything the resort has to offer and services You can also order room service and preorder breakfast. Nice option.
The gentlemen who escorted us to our rooms offered up his phone number if we ever needed his assistance to call him. Never seen him after that encounter.
Out room 256 bordered private property on the left side of the resort. Every morning there was a rooster who started crowing @ 4:00-4:30 everyday. It went on for a few hours. So a word of advice, stay off the left side unless your an early riser.
The pool was small but it wasn't crowed so there wasn't issue with over crowding. Not a lot of loungers around the pool unless you walked up along the lazy river portion of the pool. The pool could use a pair of steps to make getting in and out easier.
Spent my days on the beach. I've been on nicer beaches in punta cana. I was there early and there were always loungers available through out the day. There were different types of loungers available on the beach. So pick what suits you and relax. There were servers on the beach. But at times they were hard to find. No problem the bar wasn't to far away. Fresh towels and plenty of them. Ate lunch on the beach the majority of the time.
Now comes the down fall, in my opinion. The restaurants......Breakfast was for the most part unenjoyable. Very limited menus. Tried various meals, disappointing. Lunch like I had mentioned was on the beach for a reason. Went to the restaurant by the beach indigo. Ate there right after checking in not bad. Tried lunch the second day and the wait was an 1 1/2 hrs when I got up and walked out. Never went back.
Dinners ....Tried the three main restaurants and I wasn't impressed at all. I choose this resort because of the chain AM Resorts I've stayed at numerous times under that brand name in Punta Cana and Mexico. Never had an experience like this one. The main courses were on the smaller size. 4-6 ounces of what ever you ordered. Ordered items on the menu and was given totally different items on a few occasions. After a few days of this. You got it. Room Service.
One more thing. I would venture to say a have about 50 bites on me. Covered in them. I'm fairing a little better than my wife. Hers are itchy. Tried two types of bug spay no luck. Can't put a specific spot It happened at the beach or our room. If you go. Good luck
For the price associate with my stay. I'll go back to the Secret Resorts for my next trip in the spring.
The staff was extremely accommodating in every way possible, would insure you had everything you could possibly imagine. Food is terrific, and the room service is even better. Overall we didn’t like the location, but we loved the resort, people and all of the and amenities.
My wife and I were looking for a relatively quiet, uncrowded resort to unwind and relax and found it at Zoetry. The resort was almost at capacity and yet did not seem that way because of the layout and the general atmosphere: The rooms were modern, nice, clean and well-maintained as were the grounds. The food was above-average and the drinks plentiful. The beach was very pretty and there was plenty of room for everyone to enjoy themselves. There was no fighting for a space at the pool, or the beach. What really makes this place stand out is the service. Our concierge, Manuel, could not have been more accommodating. Everyone was pleasant and eager to please. Great atmosphere.
Thankfully, not a place for children, 20-year olds, office parties, or woo-woo’s. Lots of mosquitoes.
Zoetry Agua Punta Cana is an amazing place to stay. The rooms were great, and the stocked mini bar is a fantastic perk. The bartenders at the pool bar made us some very tasty drinks. I never know what I want to drink (don't typically drink much), but the bartenders were always able to some up with something I liked. The restaurants were all pretty good (that we tried), but the Italian place was our favorite. Service can be a bit slow, but we weren't in a hurry any way. Room service breakfast is the way to go (try the french toast...yum). Keep any salt packets you get with room service and take them to the restaurants, if you like salt. The salt shakers in the restaurants never work due to the humidity. I think the absolute best thing about our trip was our Butler, Arismendy (spelling?). He was such a nice person and was always around checking to make sure we had everything we needed/wanted. Any issues that arose, he quickly took care of. He even arranged for us to have special food one day. Truly amazing person.
I will say this is a VERY quiet resort. If you want a party place, this wont be for you. We were very happy with the serene setting, but one night wanted to go to one of the sister resorts to have a bit of nightlife. This is normally allowed, but the other resort was at capacity, so we were not allowed to visit. This was the only disappointment of the trip.
We didn't do any excursions, but it is pretty far out of town, so I'm not sure how convenient it is in that respect. We did the horseback riding from the resort and had a great time.
I would definitely recommend this resort for a quiet get-away. I went with a group of girls, but it is mostly couples when we were there.
