I went there and the end of 2016 for my Birthday, it was amazing! The food, exceptional service and attention. They helped my husband to prepare a surprise for me at dessert time! I love it! I can't wait to go back!

I was DYING for good tasting food and drinks. A fellow travel agent recommended us to go here for dinner for our last night in Punta Cana. I was not disappointed! The food was the best I could've gotten from any other resort and I FINALLY gotten a good margarita! The service was unbelievable and the ambiance was impeccable! We... More

We had to leave a drivers license at the gate to gain access to this beach club, and once in you only need to order food or drinks to have access to chairs and an umbrella. This club is right in between two huge all inclusive resorts, so there are lots of people walking by. The food at the restaurant... More

Instead of getting married at our resort for much cheaper price, we wanted to do something more private and elegant. My fiance found Kukua and I couldn't be happier with the choice. The wedding coordinator Bego was fantastic. My fiance (now wife) did all the leg work and I got to put in some input, but everything they put together... More

This place is located between two large all inclusive resorts. But when you visit it, you just dont see and hear all the buzz from the hotels next door. Very lovely place and we had a good lunch there. The staff did go the extra mile, which I really appreciate a lot. After lunch we could rest at their pool... More

Stunning views, turquoise beaches and soft sand. What more could you want? Kakua has a delightful vibe. Beachy and serene, the menu is as eclectic as it is scrumptious. We had octopus and plantains to start, and an incredible paella. Stop in for a bite and the view!

There is beautiful place but totally unfriendly staff and owners. Looks like I have to spend there over 500$ to get a smile or attention of waitre.

We had there our company party, the club is nice. There is a swimming pool inside. Nice decorations and good drinks. One big minus is that the party end so quicky. What a pity...

we were so tired of the all-inclusive food that we decided to check out the real local food at Kukua, which is right next to the Riu Palace (we walked to it via the beach). the food and service was outstanding.

Would strongly recommend a visit here. We escaped from our resort on the last evening here and had the best food we had had for 2 weeks! Shame we didn't find it earlier
