Majestic Elegance is your typical all-inclusive resort - pleasant beach, pleasant premises, unhurried service, mediocre food. If you know what to expect (= if you don't expect Majestic Elegance to be in the Four Seasons' leaque), then you will not be majorly disappointed. If you come for the beach and the convenience of all-inclusive and if you can shrug off poorly trained stuff, unhurried service and average food - you'll be fine.
If you do come, however, I would suggest staying at their Elegance Club section. It's an adults-only section closer to the beach. It has its own beach section, it's own bar or two, its own lounge or two. You can always use the other section of the resort, but (at least theoretically) non-Club guests cannot use the Club section.
We stayed at the Club section and it seemed (marginally) more pleasant than the rest of the resort.

This was not our first stay on the fair island of Hispaniola... We were here (on the Dominican side of the island, in fact - right here, in Punta Cana) more than 5 years ago, and I remember it was a pleasant vacation...however, it would not be my top Caribbean destination - I would rather go to Jamaica (the beach in Negril is better) or Mexico ( …
... so kindly alluded to in his recent blog entry) and I'm bringing one myself when i leave THIS FRIDAY! There's still so much to do. I finally found a portable steamer so I don't have to iron clothes (least favorite chore) and converted some dollars to pounds so i can buy groceries to cook with my first few days (most favorite chore). Opened up a travel card so I can earn miles towards future trips ;) and stacked up on some more literature so I can be well versed on everything ...
Punta Cana is the easternmost point on Hispaniola and the
center of the biggest concentration of large resorts. I was surprised to learn
that Dominican Republic is third in Latin America in terms of foreign tourism
receipts after Mexico and Brazil. Maybe it’s because I’ve mostly lived in the
western U.S. where people mostly go to Mexico on their beach vacations, but I
hadn’t realized how big a tourism industry there is in the D.R. ...
We just got back from a wonderful 10 days in Punta Cana. We stayed at the Esmeralda Punta Cana resort. It was quite hot and humid for my liking, but we had a great time. It was our third visit there and we decided to do an ATV excursion, a parasail excursion off the beach which did not turn out well. And a free shopping excursion which was nice they had a hard rock café restaurant and we had a delicious hamburger the last night we were there. As far as the parasail ...
... the beach and Stacey filled her bottles with sand and we took photos. Saw a Dominican family playing in the surf - We both went topless sunbathing and a man walking with his wife tried not to look. I think we might have even been buzzed by a helicopter! - Took pictures in the surf - Tonight was a meal at the Seaside grill. Best steak I have ever had in a restaurant and the chocolate brownie was a towering monster ...
