If travellers think staying at an all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic means they have to dine buffet-style every single night, they’re wrong. Resorts across the Dominican Republic now offer an array of unusual, specialty and a la carte restaurants to suit all tastes.

As an example of the varied array of dining options that All Inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic have to offer, below we feature two resorts to whet the appetite for travellers who enjoy fine dining.

‘Excellence Punta Cana’ (, is an All Inclusive romantic resort where everything is taken care of and nothing is left out. Dining at ‘Excellence Punta Cana’ is truly international, with eight irresistible restaurants in one luxury Caribbean resort catering for all tastes.

As an alternative there is the ‘Majestic Colonial’ (, another high standard All Inclusive Hotel Resort in Punta Cana Beach where you feel thousands of different sensations and be indulged with privileged All Inclusive Hotel services. Luxury and comfort fuse together to bring you the best rest and relax, and all the activities that an "All- inclusive" resort hotel may offer.

Guests can choose from any of the following tantalizing restaurants: ‘Supreme’ - offering Italian and International food; ‘ Ma+suri’ - Oriental restaurant offering two unique options - authentic Japanese cooking or sushi bar with complete menu of Oriental food and desserts; ‘Taino’ - taste of the islands and Central America; ‘Le Gourmet’ – specialises in deliciously creative meat and fish dishes; ‘Rodeo Grill’ - specialises in grilled meats; ‘Tres Carabelas’ - specialises in sea food and fish; and finally ‘La Bodeguita de Majestic’ - fast food restaurant.
