This week, two additional properties managed to secure a spot on the top 10 list of the best family-friendly resorts by U.S News & World Report, a leading travel review platform. 

The remarkable achievement further consolidates Punta Cana’s steady rise as one of the world’s luxury resort hotspots. Although the city has dominated the adult-only market for some time, a growing number of resorts are offering more family-friendly options.
