Restaurants & Bars
The diverse elements in cuisines around the world form a beautiful mosaic at the Occidental Punta Cana. This all-inclusive resort brings together an international buffet and an astonishing eight, ethnic-themed restaurants which allow guests to immerse themselves in different tastes every night. Le Buffet restaurant is an international buffet where guests consistently rate the fresh seafood, meats, fruits and salads as mouth-wateringly delicious. A la carte dining options include: Las Reses, a charming, rustic steakhouse featuring fish, steaks and chicken hot off the grill; La Hacienda, authentic Mexican dishes served in a colorful, traditional south-of-the-border atmosphere; Via Veneto, a formal, fine dining experience where Italian favorites like Beef Carpaccio and Lasagna Florentina bring guests back again and again and D'Oriental, Asian cuisine including vegetarian selections, seafood, pork and duck served in a refined, quiet atmosphere. Reservations are required at Las Reses, La Hacienda, Via Veneto and D'Oriental, where gentlemen are requested to wear long pants and shirts with sleeves.
For light dining, lunch and snacks, a quartet of casual spots stops mid-day hunger: La Fontana is a cute and casual pizzeria on the second-story terrace where guests rave over the pizza selections; Antojitos, next door to La Fontana, is a taqueria offering lighter Mexican fare; the Beach Club is a barefoot-friendly, open-air, poolside restaurant serving lunch specials and drinks daily and Home Run brings ballpark favorites like burgers, hot dogs, cool drinks and cocktails to a convenient poolside location.
The Occidental Punta Cana boasts seven bars strategically placed throughout the property to quickly bring guests a tropical refreshment wherever and whenever they need. The elegant Lobby Bar satisfies with a cool drink and offers a great people-watching perch. Mangu (free entrance included) brings on the night with cocktails, DJ and inviting dance floor.

The Dominican Republic's East Coast is spotted with spectacular walls, tunnels, and overhangs. Bavaro/Punta Cana features a 19-mile reef where divers find cactus coral, sea rods, squirrelfish, damselfish, sea fans, yellowtail snapper, butterfly fish, blue tang, wrasse, sting rays, barracuda, and a family of manatees. Another remarkable site is Laguna Pepe, a freshwater cavern, reminiscent of a cathedral, which spans an area 160 feet wide by 65 feet high in the center of a golf course near the beach. The currents nurture and add vibrancy to the reefs and make for fabulous photographic backdrops. An impressive array of blossoming coral archways and towering reef pinnacles are separated by narrow swim-throughs. Explore Astro Wreck, which is home to an immense "beehive" display of yellowtail snapper, grunts, tang, and black dragons. At 300 feet in length, swim through a labyrinth of narrow passages that lead deep into Astro, where divers view phantoms at the farthest margins of sight. Also, popular sites recommended to beginners and certified divers, El Nie, El Parque, and El Shallow, reaching no more than 40 feet, are convenient to resorts.
