H10 Hotels has opened its new five-star resort Ocean El Faro in the Dominican Republic, located on the seafront on the magnificent Punta Cana beach with crystal clear waters. The newly built establishment offers Suites equipped with all the amenities needed to guarantee guests maximum comfort and well-being, top-level facilities and a varied range of exceptional services, including various themed restaurants, the Despacio Spa Centre wellness centre and the Privilege service , for those looking for a more exclusive stay. One of the project’s iconic buildings is an impressive lighthouse, which is the hotel’s namesake and which is located on the seafront, serving as a privileged vantage point with incredible sea views. Among the facilities of the resort are its four large swimming pools, as well as a lazy river, an attraction for adults and children that consists of a water circuit with fun jets and waterfalls.
