    Hi, are there any DR AI resorts that don't have a casino on the property? I tried to do a search but couldn't find a thread on it.

      I dont remember seeing any when i was searching resorts. The resort casinos are usually very small and not like the ones in the US. We only had a few people gamble while down there.

        i just went through my DR Fodor's guide and i couldn't find a resort that was AI and didn't have a casino. there are some that don't have casinos, but they aren't all-inclusive.

          i wondered about this too. I was looking for an AI in DR for my mom & was surprised that it looked like they all had casinos. I avoid hotels with casinos too, but if it was just something small I'd probably be ok with it.

              Any particular reason why you don't want the casino? I stayed at Sunscape the Beach in Punta Cana, which is now Dreams, and the casino was a very small room that had a fun electronic roulette game and a couple of slots and tables. It was in the back corner of the lobby area and not a big deal at all. Not sure if that helps :)

                I am pretty sure all of the the AI's have casinos. We never even stepped foot into the one at PPC - and only had one couple who even went there. We went into the one at PPR but didn't play anything.

                They are small and easy to avoid. You won't even know they are there unless you seek them out. I would definitely NOT be concerned about having a casino at the resort unless you have a family member panning to come who may have a gambling problem. If that's the case, you may need to look at non-AI's if Punta Cana is your destination of choice. Good Luck!!!
