As you all know my husband and I have a case of travel fever. Especially when it comes to sun and sand, we just can't resist.
This past September we had the opportunity to travel to the Dominican Republic for a week long stay at a beautiful resort in Punta Cana. All inclusive, adults only and no kids, just the two of us and good friends.
If you want to stay at a hotel that has great customer service, rooms, food and a beach, you have to check out the Majestic Elegance resort in Punta Cana. We chose to upgrade to the club level and don't regret it one little bit! We had a swim up room with a butler that worked his butt off to make our trip absolutely amazing.
We considered this trip our relaxation week, so we didn't do a whole lot and it was fantastic. 3 meals a day at 7 different restaurants and we basically migrated from the pool to the beach and back to the pool!
We did manage to get dressed and make our way off the resort to go tour Don Lucas Cigar factory. It was fantastic. We learned all about growing tobacco and how it's processed for cigars. It's pretty cool to watch them roll, and amazingly fast. But I guess when you do it day in and day out for 10+ years, you could probably do it in your sleep. From rolling we went to the drying rooms and I couldn't believe how many cigars there were! Hundreds of thousands, all stacked and waiting for packaging. From there we went to the rum tasting portion of the tour which is always a good time. The guys definitely enjoyed sipping and smoking! After that the coffee roasting tour and cocoa tour. Let me tell you that place smelled heavenly. If you know me, you know I love my coffee. Seriously, coffee and cocoa, it doesn't get any better! Of course we had to buy some cigars to take home. It's always nice to have something at home to remember your trip by.
All in all we had a fabulous week and we cant wait to get back. Next time we will definitely get off the resort more and see what else the island has to offer.
