Paradisus Princessa del Mar or Sandals

We are choosing between these two resorts to go this Christmas. We are a couple in our 50's and like a good beach, nice room, good drinks (not domestic), some nightly entertainment and good food. Both are adults but Sandals is couples only and we are not sure if that would be mostly honeymooners. Could somebody who has stayed at both give us some pros and cons to help us make our decision. We also so Melia Las Americas but some say it is very old? Thanks for you help.

Speaking as someone who has only been to Sandals, it is not all honeymooners. I would say that there is a good mix of twenty somethings all the way to people in their 70's. It is always a very relaxing vacation. Good food, good drinks and an excellent beach. I'm sure the Paradisus has good points as well. The couples only aspect puts it over the top for me, though.

I originally looked at both but have booked into sandals as just had the edge over the princessa. Were not on a honeymoon, my uncle visits twice a year and has done for about ten years or so which is saying something. They seem to have A LOT of repeat customers and all of a mixed age range. I don't think you'd feel out of place at all, it's just couples and there will be some honeymooners. Sandals all the way.
