Sometimes it might be nice to go on an “adults only” vacation, i.e. a vacation where you do not bring your kids along; granted they are old enough to stay home alone, that you can get grandma to watch them or they have already moved out of the house. It might also be that you do not have any kids and do not feel like being surrounded by families with kids on your vacation.
Whatever your reason for wanting to travel kids-free is, there are plenty of hotels and resorts that now cater only to the grown ups. If you want to travel to e.g. Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and stay at a hotel without running into (screaming) toddlers or young kids running around all over the place, then you are in luck. By now there are quite a lot of hotels and resorts in here, which are “adults only”.
You will need to know, though, that the hotels and resorts define adults as persons who are at least 18 years old. So young people and teenagers are still allowed to stay at these hotels.
Some hotels are 100% “adults only” while others only offer a part of the property as “adults only”. If you are looking for such a hotel, you should consider one or more of the following:
Excellence Punta Cana
Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa
Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar
Riu Palace Macao
Iberostar Grand Bavaro
Colonial Club at Majestic Colonial Punta Cana (part of the hotel)
Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium

The Level Adults Only at Melia Caribe Tropical (part of the hotel)
Castle Suites at Sanctuary Cap Cana (part of the hotel) – This entire hotel will be adults only from December 15th, 2015.
These hotels and resort range in prices and quality. All of these hotels are per their own definition all 5-star properties, and all of them offer all-inclusive experience.
