Taste (and Sip) Tortuga Bay and Puntacana Resort & Club

It’s time for a taste (and sip) of the restaurants and bars at Tortuga Bay, and around the property of Puntacana Resort & Club.

Let’s start with the most important meal of the day — breakfast at Bamboo, the restaurant at Tortuga Bay. The breakfast buffet has loads of delicious choices, with tons of fresh fruit, pastries, and even these cute little parfaits!

For dinner, you have several choices.  We loved La Yola so much, we went there two of our four nights.  The linguini with crab was perfect!

With that golf cart, it’s easy to get around the resort property, although sometimes things are a bit hard to locate in the dark.  You can always get a lift to wherever you would like to go. One night we got a lift over to Playa Blanca for dinner.

On the Saturday night of our stay, we dined at Bamboo, the resort’s AAA Four-Diamond Award winning restaurant.  You won’t see any photos of our meal here — we were too busy eating!
