Bartering with the beach vendors is a unique Punta Cana shopping experience. But, if you prefer to shop in comfort with air conditioning, clean rest rooms and a choice of watering holes where you can rest your weary feet then Palma Real Shopping Village is for you.
It’s located on the main road just next to the entrance to Paradisius Palma Real and Melia Caribe Tropical Resorts.
Restaurants – all to the far left of the complex: Hard Rock Cafe (and Hard Rock Store), Tony Roma’s, Akai Sushi, Pizzarelli, Helados Bon ice cream, among others. Free wifi is available in this area.
Special mention to Hard Rock Cafe
The 10,760-square-foot cafe features Hard Rock’s outstanding menu, collectible merchandise and world-renowned memorabilia collection. Key pieces of memorabilia on display include items from contemporary stars, such as a shirt worn by Gwen Stefani during a performance on “Saturday Night Live,” a guitar donated by Dominican music legend Juan Luis Guerra, and a shirt worn by Latin icon Juanes during his 2006 tour, as well as items from rock legends Billy Joel and all three members of The Police.
