Mom and daughter's (18yo) trip to Punta Cana - Resort recommendations?

Trying to help plan a trip to Punta Cana, Dominican Republic for 3 moms and their HS senior girls for late March spring break. They've narrowed it down to Punta Cana (ruled out Cabo due to possibly being cool at night and Cancun for the same reason) and are seriously considering an All-inclusive. Priorities are sun, heat, good pool and beach... don't need gourmet food but they won't love bad buffets. Looking for something moderately priced and will likely buy as a package deal with airfare. The Majestic properties keep popping up and we had a good dinner experience at Paradisus about 5 years ago (but seems to have a slighly lower rating). Trying to strike a balance btw a mega property with wall to wall people and something too small that it seems boring with a lack of space / things to do. Not sure how Covid has affected things but any input would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

Just google “COVID in The Dominican Republic”. Right now, it is not recommended to travel there. In some places you are required to quarantine for seven days. Do check into the situation and how things are handled if you should test positive while there. Also, consider the possibility of picking up something on the flight and bringing cases into a country that is less able to care for people.

Thanks, still wondering about the properties as the group will likely be vaccinated before they travel.
