Excellence DR vs rivera or Iberostar Grand Rivera? or Jamaica AL?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are deciding between on a beach trip Jan 4-9, 2014 We have traveled to many places in Europe, Caribbean and the US. We have stayed at various non AL throughout the Caribbean (Ritz Grand Cayman most recent) and several AL's in Mexico(Secrets Maroma &The Royal most recent). We are coming from Ohio. The flight to Mexico saves us a few hours compared to DR and Jamaica. We love a nice beach so we wanted to try DR or Jamaica, but the resorts don't seem as nice as in Mexico (we have gotten custom to nice resorts like Secrets Maroma) . We are considering Excellence DR vs Excellence rivera or Iberostar Grand Rivera Maya? Iberostar Grand in DR is full. We considered Al in Jamacia, but the price seem $550-700 more for the nice AL's compared to DR and Mexico. So, my questions are: 1-Do we go back to Mexico or try DR/ Jamaica if the comparable resort is $500 more?
2. If we choose Mexico, what is better Excellence or Iberostar Grande?
