Great place as a first or last step in Punta Cana. 40$ US per pax. The 40 dollars are for consumption in the restaurant. Great service, thank you Ramon for your service.

We stopped here for snacks, cocktails and beer on a Saturday afternoon. Staff are friendly and pleasant. Food and cocktails are good. You can sit in the restaurant or at the lounge chairs on the beach. A great place to enjoy a refreshing drink, food...and unwind on the beach!More

I paid a $30 resort access fee for the beach. It was clean and pleasant, and the $30 goes towards food and drinks, so not a bad deal, right? When I got there, I waived at a waiter and asked if he could please take...my order. I waived , and I enjoyed the cocktails, theyMore

First meal in the Dominican Republic when arriving later in the day and having some time to kill before getting into our rental home. This restaurant is located right on the beach at the Punta Cana Resort and Club. We aren’t large eaters, but after...a pretty early morning of travel, followed by airline snacking we were ready to get some food in. We were seated in Manuel’s section, and he greeted us warmly and provided us with some time to get settled in and look at the options. Our group of 3 Started out with a glass of Woodbridge Cabernet Sauvignon, red sangria, and I had a michelada with the local El Presidente beer. Very tasty, cold, refreshing and as you sit Oceanside and watch people kite surfing, learning how to sail, chilling on the beach you have a vacation is finally here vibe. My parents split the linguini de frutti de mare, and I ordered the risotto with tomatoes, burrata, and pesto. It took a little while, but it’s island time and we weren’t in a rush. When the food came out it was perfectly executed. The linguini was cooked Al dente, the risotto with pesto drizzled on it along with a big chunk of burrata and alfalfa sprouts on top (it baffled me but it worked out!) was superb. Rice had some bite to it, but not crunchy. Just really well done. We had to get back to the home but I had to find out the next time Manuel was working so I could bring our entire group later in the week. Thank you to him for an excellent meal and a warm welcome to Punta Cana. We hope to be back!More

We own a condo in Bavaro and our most favorite beach club is Blanca. Have been there many times over 7 years and have never been disappointed. When guests visit, we alway spend a day at this beach. Yes, there sometimes is a entry fee,...but it is applied to all food and beverages. The food is AMAZING! The beach well maintained. The staff are friendly and non intrusive for a relaxing and zen like day at the beach! Oh and the washrooms are extremely clean and well maintained.More

I would recommend this place is not a place to visit I am in agreement with the last review they threaten you to call security if you don’t pay them $40 cash just to get in so if you have 3 children it’s a fortune....The staff are quite rude and the resturant and beach is empty. Better places to visit in Punta Cana and nicer beaches.More
