You work really hard, and you put up with a lot. Getting through the workweek is not easy, and neither is sitting in traffic. You’ve got bosses, and bills - stress on top of stress. Not to mention the constant emails that can reach you whenever, wherever. It’s exhausting!
But you wearily trudge through your daily activities because you know that there is something bright and hopeful waiting for you.
You know that you’ve certainly earned it, and now you want to make sure that you don’t waste it. There are millions of places that you could visit. You could learn about art and history. You could see ancient ruins, or take a spiritual journey to the top of a mountain.
Those are all noble pursuits, but this time - all you want, all you really want, is to sit on the beach sipping a frozen cocktail.
You want a vacation that feels like a vacation. You want to come back restored, not tired, sore, and ready for a week off just to recuperate. You’ve done those trips.
Now is the time for doing nothing but tanning, eating great food, and relaxing.
Which is why you’ve picked Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic as your dream destination. With miles of sandy white beaches and plenty of fun drinks, the Coconut Coast, as it’s known, is calling your name. The waters are bright and clear. The views are spectacular, and the resorts are all-inclusive.
That means you can drink as many cocktails as you want and spend as much time in the sun as you have sunscreen. You can pop from one gourmet restaurant to the next and try your hand at water sports that get you a little out of your comfort zone.
Staying at the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana Resort
The only thing left to do is pick which resort is best for you. You can’t beat the location, and so many of the resorts have such fabulous amenities, that it’s hard to pick a wrong place. What you need is a resort that goes above and beyond the others. You need a place that’s truly paradise.
The Majestic Colonial Punta Cana isn’t heaven, but it’s pretty close. It has a mile-long list of amenities and features, and you can practically feel the warm sunrays through their stunning photographs.
A quick image search of the resort will likely have you clicking the “book now” button, but just in case you need a little convincing, here is a breakdown of all the resort’s many fine attributes.
The Accommodations are Luxurious
If you’re used to staying at a Holiday Inn, then you’re in for some big surprises. The 658 rooms at the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana have everything you would expect from a 5-star resort.
The floors are marble, each room has all the standard creature comforts including air conditioning, free Wi-Fi, and a well stocked mini-bar. No matter what type of room you choose you’re sure to feel cradled in the lap of luxury.
In fact, each room comes with a complimentary bottle of champagne to help you kick-off your stay. You can raise a glass and make a toast to the best trip you’re ever going to have and the best tan you’re ever going to get. Right from the start, you’ll be confident you made the right choice in the Majestic Colonial hotel and resort.
There is a wide array of rooms and suites that you can choose from. Some have specific locations and floors within the resort, and some come with some pretty special perks. The prices are reasonable enough and the accommodations nice enough that choosing what room is right for you is pretty low-pressure.
Most of the time when you book a vacation - so much rides on finding the right room and the right hotel. If you screw up, you’ll have a miserable time. That’s really not possible at the Majestic Colonial. Every room and every price point is designed to make your feel welcomed and relaxed.
The Junior Suite sleeps up to 4 guests, and it features a view of the garden, or the pool. You can choose from a king sized bed, or 2 double beds, and the bathroom features a Jacuzzi tub. For a view of the ocean you’ll want to select the Junior Suite Ocean View room option. Room service is available from 7am until 11pm, but is not included in the price of the junior suite.
Room service is however included in the price of the remaining rooms. That might be a deciding factor for you. Consider how many times you might want to order breakfast to your room during your stay, or how many times you might want a late night snack without leaving your room.
If ordering room service seems like a thing you’ll do often, then you might be better off springing for a slightly more expensive package.
If you’d rather be out and about then eat in your room, then the Junior Suites are perfect. You want to spend most of your time on the beach anyway, don’t you?
The Majestic Junior Suites are located on the first floor of the resort, and they feature a private garden with direct access to the pool. Guests have the luxury of both an indoor and an outdoor Jacuzzi, and it sleeps up to 4. This room option is not available for those traveling with children, but that shouldn’t cramp your style, right?
Imagine being able to wake up, and walk right out to the pool. The birds are chirping. The water looks like glass. The smell of the ocean is heavy in the air. You wake up early just for the chance to sit by the pool before it gets crowded. For just a little while, paradise belongs all to you. Not bad for a reasonably priced hotel suite.
The Colonial Junior Suites are located close to the beach, feature ocean views, and have both an indoor and an outdoor Jacuzzi. You get a spacious room, and you also get a furnished terrace that’s perfect for watching the sunset, or enjoying a cocktail and a good book.
Having a bit of private outdoor space is a real luxury at a resort. Maybe a morning dip in the pool is not quite your speed, but waking up and stepping out onto your own terrace to watch the ocean waves is.
You’ll love the Colonial Junior Suite, and you’ll love being able to enjoy the sounds and smells of the surf without having to share your beach blanket with screaming children or your sunrays with anyone else. You might not have your own private beach, but a terrace can still give you a personal slice of paradise.
Lastly, the One Bedroom Suite gives you over 1000 square feet of space, and it features a bedroom and separate living room. You can spread out, relax, and really make the room feel like your own during your stay.
Hotel rooms, no matter how spacious, get a little cramped when all you have is a bed, and a desk, and a bathroom. You can start to feel like you’re in a dorm room and not on a luxury vacation. Having a separate living room is perfect for a long stay.
It’s also great if you’re sharing your hard-earned vacation with several friends. You won’t get in each other’s way, and at the end of the trip, you will all still be friends.
The Amenities are Endless
The Majestic Colonial Punta Cana pulls out all the stops when it comes to your comfort and your satisfaction. The all-inclusive package includes 9 bars, 6 restaurants, an after hours bar, a fitness center, a 400-meter-long swimming pool, tennis courts, and water sports.
The pool alone is worth the price of admission. It features 2 integrated Jacuzzis, private cabanas, and picturesque palm trees. The water is cool and clear, and the poolside drinks are never ending. You can work on your tan, your reading list, or your gossip.
The choice is yours, and you really can’t make a bad one.
You can also go snorkeling, or kayaking. You can play volleyball. There’s nightly entertainment available, and the nightlife is fantastic. Plus, the resort’s convenient location puts you right in the heart of a vibrant city full of wonders all its own.

You can gamble the night away at the casino, or dance the night away at the discotheque. You’ll never be bored, and if all else fails, you can sit on the resort’s beach and take in the white sand and the pristine water.
It’s not the worst place to twiddle away a little free time.
The Bars and Restaurants are Top-Notch
With 9 bars and 6 restaurants there is always plenty to eat and drink. You can choose from casual Caribbean faire at several open-air restaurants with prominent beach views, or you can opt for an adults-only fine dining experience.
The cuisine options include Asian, Dominican, and Mexican dishes with an emphasis on fresh seafood. You can grab a quick bite along the beach at the La Bodeguita del Majestic, or you can go back for seconds at the Supreme buffet.
Each location offers incredible food and amazing atmosphere. The tables are draped in fine linens, and the candlelight adds extra ambiance to the star filled nights. There’s also no way to beat eating by the water. You can enjoy fresh seafood as the waves lap against the sandy shores. It’s nothing less than the sounds and sights of paradise.
Since you’re probably indulging in all manner of ways on your vacation, you will appreciate the abundance of all-inclusive bars. They dot the lobby of the resort as well as the pools and beaches, so a good drink is never out of reach. Plus, there’s no pesky tab to worry about paying.
You Have Adults-Only Options
The Majestic Colonial Punta Cana resort is divided up into 2 sections. You can choose from the family friendly, all-ages resort, or the adults-only Colonial Club section. The adults-only section gives you the same incredible accommodation options with a little more freedom to enjoy your vacation.
You don’t want to seem anti-children or anything, but maybe you just want a little peace and quiet. Kids are great, but they’re also loud, rambunctious, and they’re always stepping on your beach blanket.
You just want to sit by the water, sip your cocktail, and talk about whatever you want without having to worry about little ears and major tantrums. You’ve worked too hard for your vacation to let someone else’s kid interrupt it. That’s fair.
The adults-only side of the resort is great for a friends’ trip, a honeymoon, a bachelor or bachelorette party, or anything else in between. Enjoy all the resort’s standard amenities plus 2 private bars, 2 swim up bars, and 2 private pools with Bali beds.
