Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

Our family spent a few days down in the Dominican Republic, celebrating our sons marriage. Here is a little pictorial review of the resort we stayed at.  It is called Dreams Palm Beach Resort .  You can click on the name to go see some fabulous pictures.

We stayed in a garden view/double room.  There was three of us in the room, so they provided us a twin bed.  The bed are only full size, but very comfortable.  The best part about this room was that it was air conditioned! They came in and turned down your bed each night and gave you the next days schedule of activities.   
All the rooms surrounded some very nice pools.  They had activities through out the day to keep people busy.  The water was very warm.
There was plenty of shade for you hide in from the strong Dominican sunshine. 

The pools had shelves so you could sit in
 the water and relax!
They had their own private beach.  You could borrow kayaks, snorkel gear, and sail boats.  We did some snorkeling right in the swimming area.  You can see some pics from that adventure HERE.

The best place to hide from the sun was under these grass huts.  The temperature was at least ten degrees cooler under here.  Did I mention it was HOT in the DR. 
 I thought I was going to melt.   
Another way to cool off was to drink smoothies from the bar.  You could swim right up and order a fruity drink.  Here I am double fisting some drinks to keep us cool.
That about wraps up our time at the hotel. Next time I will share some pictures about the wedding. 

 I didn't take too many pictures.  I wanted to be in the moment and not behind the lens.  
So I am patiently waiting 
for pictures from the photographer. 

Thanks for stopping by.
Have a blessed day.
