Pre-Vacation - Majestic Elegance Punta Cana

Our upcoming vacation to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is getting closer. It's about a month away!! YEA! Over the last few weeks I've been looking more at pictures and forum posts on Trip Advisor and other sites to get into vacation mode! We can't wait, we were last in Punta Cana back in 2003. That was where we got engaged. The beaches there are the best we've ever been to and that is saying something because we've been to a LOT of beaches over the years.

We're staying in the club section, which is the Adult only section of the resort. That gives you access to 2 adult only pools, 2 rooftop bars, bali bed section on the beach, poolside/beach drink service, internet access in the room, separate lobby with computers/internet access, free room service, concierge service and a bunch of other things that I can't recall.

We're staying at the Majestic Elegance and I thought I'd post some pictures from other travelers that have been there recently....Can't wait!!

I think this is similar to what our room will be like with the jacuzzi by the balcony

Post Trip Update:  We had a wonderful time and the pictures are very accurate, it is beautiful.

One thing we were glad we did ahead of time was to do one of the Spanish Learning programs.  Most employees do speak some English at the Majestic, but unlike Mexico where everyone speaks fluent English for the most part, in the Dominican it really does help a bunch to speak a little more Spanish than just Hola, Cerveza or Donde esta el bano?  ;)

We tried a few different programs and sites and we found that Rocket Spanish helped the most to actually be able to speak and understand the language the best.   I'd definitely recommend checking it out if you are traveling to the Dominican Republic and they have a free 6 day trial as well with nothing other than a name and email required.  Can't beat that.

All in all it was an excellent time, you won't be disappointed!

I enjoyed your pictures and we are looking forward to our upcoming Trip to the Majestic! I'm wondering if you can answer a question for me. We've been trying to decide if we should request a room in the Elle or Ella section, do you have any recommendations?

We stayed in the Ella section, room 4424. If you are facing the beach, the Ella section is on the right hand side, backing up to the vacant lot next door. We requested a top floor Ella room with an ocean view preferred and we were happy that is what we got.

However, it's not a full on ocean view, it was more a view of the beach off to the side that you had to stand up and look towards the left to see. But a view nonetheless. If you'd like to see a photo of the view/room, feel free to send me an email to and I'd be glad to show you.

And let me know if you have any other questions. Thanks for the comment!
