On the family-friendly Caribbean island of Dominican Republic, this all-inclusive water-lovers' resort is less than an hour from the airport and just footsteps from the beach. A recent addition to First Choice's SplashWorld programme, it has a whole host of facilities and activities, including a fabulous new waterpark where guests will enjoy unlimited access throughout your stay.
Well suited to families, Memories Splash Punta Cana also has a hotel-run kids' club for ages 4-12, a games room for teens, watersports and a daytime activity programme. For little ones, there's a splash pool with slides, a play zone with water jets and a wave pool. For older kids, adrenaline-fuelled waterpark activities include a water rollercoaster and a vertical drop. If water isn't your thing, there's mini-golf, tennis and organised beach games.
When it comes to re-fuelling, options include an 'under the sea' themed family restaurant and a teen bar serving up non-alcoholic cocktails. After all the excitement, you'll be glad to flake out in your spacious modern room, with Junior Suites sleeping four with bunkbeds for kids, or upgrade to a deluxe room with premium options including access to an exclusive beach and private lounge.
