Ocho Rios vs Punta Cana for honeymoon

Jump to last reply

Planning a honeymoon for end of November. While we're still open to anything, we have our initial search narrowed down to 3 places, based on budget (all three are looking to be around $1,600 per person all inclusive for a week stay, with airfare).

- Riu Palace in Punta Cana
- Jewel Dunn River Falls in Ocho Rios
- Riu in Ocho Rios

For those that have been to these places, was hoping to get some opinions. The internet can be a great research tool but sometimes it is 'information overload' when trying to sift through websites.

Key points for us in making a decision.
- We're both around 30. While we're not looking for a spring break type atmosphere, we still a enjoy a good time every now and then.
- My fiance has never seen the ocean before. While any ocean view will be incredible for her, we definitely need a resort with a decent ocean/beach
- Her other 'want' is a great swim-up bar. While it may seem trivial, this is just one of those things she has wanted to do for a long time.
- Other things we'd be interested in doing would be snorkeling and/or scuba diving...swimming with the dolphins... perhaps taking a day trip off the resort one day to some kind of local attraction... nothing in particular, just something interesting.

I would assume any of the resorts listed would cover these points well, so I'd love just any general feedback that might help us with a decision. Thanks in advance!
