Most resorts have an all inclusive board basis and as I say in the main body copy, if you are on a budget its the best way to eat and drink.

But if you do fancy a night out away from your hotel/resort, then the Hard Rock cafe not only has great food, but live music at weekends.

La Cana course at PuntaCana Resort, 5th hole


Above: Looking back down the Par 3, 5th and the first of the holes on by the sea

La Cana golf course is now 7 years old, with fours holes on the beach and the finishing two holes that run right along the ocean front, when I say on the beach if you don’t look where your placing your feet during your set up on the tee you could fall on the beach, its that close. But before you get to the first hole that runs along the beach you have the par 3, 200 yard 3rd hole its a great little hole over a lake with a fountain, then when you get to the par 3, 154 yard 5th hole you cant help but be impressed the tee is right on the beach.

Believe me the sand is that white and the water that blue and clear, it looks like something out of a golf magazine!! The 7th is a par 4 326 yard dogleg left to a green that sits in some palm trees just before the beach, but the tee like the rest of the course is surrounded by some beautifully designed villas so keep your mind on the golf. If you never get to play the 17th at Sawgrass then you get a chance to play something very similar on the par 3, 12th hole here a 146-yard tee shot to a two-tiered island green you’ll love it.

The par 4, 17th is played like a dogleg right you hit your tee shot out from the tee on the beach to the fairway then your second is back towards the sea to a sleeper protected green that’s 42 yards long so can play anything from a 4-7 iron depending on its pin position. The thing I love about this finishing hole is that not only does it sooth the soul with its shear beauty of its setting but it gives you a great chance at a birdie and there is no better way to finish and shake hands with your playing partner than the sea crashing against the sand just inches away and a four on your card.
