Cocotal Golf & Country Club: Harmonious and alluring.
If Cortecito is the playground of the Punta Cana coast, then Cocotal Golf & Country Club is the lounge area. In the resort complex of Sol Melia (Melia Hotels), and neighboring the resort of Barcelo hotels, Cocotal Golf & Country Club stretches inland from the sea, beautiful properties that offer single-family homes and apartments, fringed by the local popular golf course in the area.

This is where the local hotel management, retirees and lovers of golf really live. While Cortecito grabs the headlines and attracts vacationers, the relative seclusion of Cocotal Golf & Country Club offers welcome relief from the tourist traffic for those that seek it. Large comfortable villas in an exclusive gated community and swathes of nicely laid out apartment complexes characterize its makeup, creating a community that enjoys all the benefits of Punta Cana living without any of the inherent drawbacks that come with residing at the heart of one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. For a prospective expat, Cocotal Golf & Country Club has everything you are going to need, and more.

Living at the Cocotal Golf & Country Club
Palma Real Villas is a residential community built around the Cocotal Golf & Country Club, a 27 hole golf course available to local residents and guests at the Melia Hotels, to which the grounds belong to.

When driving in and around the Cocotal Golf & Country Club, the first thing that strikes you is just how pretty everything is. Well-kept gardens with the inherent grace and charm of Spanish styled homes, and terracotta roof tiles that shimmer beautifully under the perennial blue skies, while the tall palm trees create an idyllic setting that seems torn straight from a post card.

What you’ll also notice is just how peaceful Cocotal Golf & Country Club is.  The vibrancy of Bavaro – Punta Cana is a ten-minute walk away but the noise and the crowds rarely venture this far inland.  Even the hotels are situated as close to the coast as possible, leaving the rest of the town free to be enjoyed by the locals and the holiday home owners, of which there are many.  In fact, Cocotal Golf & Country Club has all the ingredients that comprise most people’s idea of a ‘dream life’ in Punta Cana – the spacious apartment with swimming pool; the panoramic golf views; the healthy outdoor lifestyle; the easy transition into a Caribbean way of life without having to relinquish the comforts of home; and the peaceful atmosphere that is ideal for raising a family, or retirement.

Palma Real Shopping Village is located right across the community, which houses internationally known brands such as the Hard Rock Cafe store, Versace, Tommy Hilfiger, GUESS, Diesel, Swarovski Crystals, Outback Steak House and many more shops and restaurants.
