Any Dom Rep regulars also been to Riviera Maya, Mexico?

Hi - just returned from Riviera Maya and thinking about Dominican Republic for next holiday. Must admit we were not keen on the huge all inclusive hotels but as we hadn't been to Mexico before wanted to go on a package tour and this was all that was offered. Looking at my holiday brochures the Dom Rep hotels seem to be similar - would appreciate tips from anyone who has been to both places.

Our main dislike was not being able to walk anywhere apart from the hotel grounds - everything was so far apart and we had to take taxis/shuttles to go anywhere as there was nothing close to the hotel of any interest.

We're used to small villages in Greece/Turkey/Spain/Italy where you can walk into town for a drink and meal which lasts most of the evening. Not a 30 minute visit to a buffet!
