The kids ages are 10, 6, and 3. We are looking for a family friendly resort for a good value?

With the kids if they enjoy the water the barcelo bavaro palace, bahia principe, sirenis all have water features with slides and such for the kids, ocean blue is a good family resort with a bowling alley to keep them entertained as well.

If booking packages then add the 3 year old separately.. I do it all the time. For example sites like expedia. I'll book 2 adults n 2 kids. Then separately book another airline ticket and call the resort to let them know I have a 3rd monkey with me.

Hola: As said above, Ocean Blue would be great. Also look into Dreams La Romana in Bayahibe. Great activities for the kids, with plenty to do. Great staff and good food. Plus you can walk down the beach into Bayahibe, and explore the small Dominican town. Plus you are close to the departure point for Saona Island trips.

Good luck.

Then definitely go with the Palladium, he can have his picture taken with their monkey at the resort.

The Palladium is a great family beach destination. I've taken my grandchildren there twice and they had a wonderful time. I'm always hearing, grammy, when can we go back to Punta Cana!! Your younger ones will love the new Kids center. It is totally awesome.

Riu Bambu. It's hard because my oldest is 15 but my daughter is just 8 as we kind of have to plan around her but still keep the 15 year old attention.
