Default Punta Cana

Funny you should ask. Just got back from Punta Cana and stayed at the Majestic Colonial Resort. They had a casino on site. Not favorable. 7 decks, burn 5 cards after each shuffle, cut about 3 to 3.5 decks off, late surrender allowed, DAS, S17, dealer does not check for natural on 10 or ace upcards. Also 5 minimum and 100 maximum bet. I got lucky over the 6 nights and won a few bucks.
One night I taxied over to Hard Rock Cafe Casino which is one of the biggest in Punta Cana. Six deck, H17, no surrender. I actually won there too. It was good trip but unexpected. Not all but most resorts have casinos.

Good luck

The casinos on that island have always been rumored to cheat.

Did you see them fully spread the cards for your observation ?

When I was at the Bavaro in Punta Cana in March of 2010, the cards looked like they hadn't been changed in about a month. I didn't notice anything suspicious while counting which would indicate to me that any cards were missing, but I did wonder. Had some winning sessions and some losing ones, but lost overall. Most of the dealers did not seem capable of deliberately mis-dealing. I did, however, encounter the fastest dealer I have ever seen.
