I have been reading the forums religiously trying to decide which hotel would suit my bf and I for our December vacation. We have it narrowed down to the Excellence and the Beloved. As such, I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could answer the following questions:
1) At the Excellence, would you recommend a swim-up or Oceanview room with the Excellence club? The only reason I am leaning towards a swim-up room is that I like the idea of never having to wake up early to get a chair. However, if chairs are easily accessible, then it may not be necessary!
2) How quiet is the Beloved? We love peace and quiet during the day but we do not want it to be a complete ghost town at night. We do not need shows or discos, just a place to congregate at night where there are other people around.
I know that the Beloved is not adults only and has less restaurants. However, my main concern with the hotel is that it will be too quiet. We have stayed at the Zoetry in Punta Cana and found it to be a little bit too deserted for our tastes. At the same time, we do not want to go to the Excellence if it will be too crowded and rowdy!
The Beloved is significantly cheaper than the Excellence.
Any info is greatly appreciated!!
