DR vs Riviera Maya - Which Resort?

Jump to last reply

I posted back in Feb/Mar on a more generic caribbean vacation we thought we'd take in April/May. Didn't work out for us.

Now we're looking to go in early August...over our anniversary...August 12th.

We have narrowed to Mexico-Riviera Maya and the DR...probably Punta Cana or La Romana for closeness to airport.

Would love your recommendations on which one and specific resorts in these areas based on criteria that we find important below.

1) All inclusive - we want a stress free vacation. Some activities outside resort for 1 or 2 days of excursions.
2) Nice soft white sandy beaches - we love to hang on the beach. Gentle waters..i.e...not too rough so we can swim or float.
3) Romantic environment yet with a fun upbeat atmosphere with daytime and some night life activities
4) Nice pools with swim up bar.
5) We're looking for ocean view or ocean front room...want the view.
6) Budget with airfare included is $4k to $5k though i do have AA and Delta miles that will get me there if needed to stay w/in budget.

Your input is MUCH appreciated...eager to book soon and start drooling over our trip!

And if I'm missing an island where i can get the above ...other than than the 2 I mentioned...please let me know!

Tried to add Mexico/Riviera May tag to the DR tag...but couldn't...not sure why.

TIA!

Jeff
