Choosing the right resort for the perfect all-inclusive experience can feel overwhelming, even with the help of websites like Tripadvisor or Booking.

The ranking, updated on a yearly basis, provides travelers with a reference on what kinds of services and amenities to expect from their accommodation. With 5 distinct levels ranging from Ultimate Luxury to Budget-Oriented, the AAA Diamond Rating system is the go-to source for millions of travelers. 

The AAA analyses several dozen criteria when determining its final ranking, evaluating everything from cleanliness to safety and customer service. Punta Cana currently stands out as one of the best-performing Caribbean destinations with regard to 4 and 5-star properties, including the renowned Tortuga Bay.
