Complete Guide to the Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Punta Cana
What better reason do you need to visit the Nickelodeon Hotels and Resorts Punta Cana than the gorgeous beach that the property sits on? The water is calm and warm, with just a few small waves that will make your kids giggle as they jump and splash around. Grab a lounge chair or a cabana (included in your hotel stay, but you do need to request one) to relax, read a book, or just store your stuff while you build a sand castle with your kids.
When you have had enough of the salt and sand, walk up to the infinity pool for a refreshing beverage, or take part in any number of activities that are planned that week (you are given an activity sheet at check in). If you are at a loss, here are a few ideas to keep you busy during your stay.
There are no life vests available, but there are towels, sunscreen for purchase, athletic balls (football, volleyball, etc.) and beach toys. Lifeguards are also stationed at the pool.
Infinity Pool Terrace and bar. Order a mojito or an el Caipirinha (Brazilian cocktail made with a lot of lime, sugar and cachaca or rum) from the bar, or if you prefer, beer, wine and any other cocktail. Daily signature drinks will also be available. If you get hungry in the pool, ask for a cup of pretzels to munch on while you sip.
Fitness Center and classes
The Fitness Center is open 24-hours a day, 7-days a week and includes your standard gym equipment, like treadmills, ellipticals, weights and circuit trainers. There is a television, water and towels available as well.
Fitness Classes are located in the Fitness Center, Dance Studio, Beach (Playa) and Main Pool. Sampling of classes (check weekly schedule for offerings):
- Stretching classes

While the kids are off with their friends at Just Kidding (Kid’s Club), hop into the spa for a massage or facial. Make sure you leave time to sit in the herbal steam room or dry sauna, relax in the chromo therapy showers, bubble beds, whirlpool, and arctic and warm water pools. There are five indoor treatment rooms, five outdoor treatment huts with showers, a couple’s suite, a bridal suite, and a full service salon that can do hair, make up, manicures and pedicures. Vassa Spa’s Signature “perfectly pink” treatments can be booked for your little one if she/he would like to accompany you to the spa.
