The Hard Rock Hotel/Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
I do not even remember when I started receiving the subscription for AFAR travel magazine, but I do know that everyday at 1:30 pm when I go to pick up my little second grader from school, I make sure I have some form of reading material as I wait in the car for my daughter's school to dismiss the kids. I do remember reading two or even three issues but I can not recall ever signing up for any of them. I remember reading the last issue that I received and I read about places in the Dominican Republic. I thought that seeing the very same place that my husband and I already planned to visit in the particular issue was very ironic. I also remember that one of your writers visited the Dominican Republic and he wrote about his experience there. The reason for all of this is that my husband and I went to the Dominican Republic December 31, to January 6th. I took my AFAR magazine, with me because it was my reading material on the plane. When I received the March/April issue for this year I quickly went through it and noticed that the same hotel that my husband and I stayed at was on display on page 24. The Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana. What a coincidence? Needless to say words can not express how much fun we had on this trip. This resort had nearly 15 pools and 9 restaurants, including spas and boutiques. This resort is so amazing you really do not need to leave the hotel because everything is on site. The activities are endless. I took nearly 300 pictures I had a good time.
