I have been trying to decide if I should exchange my time share to go to DR. Right now my only option is Sun Village Resort and Spa or Canoa Coral. I love pools with the swim up bars, my husband enjoys that as well but he really wants to go to a 'nice' beach. From the reviews I have read, I'm concerned that he will be disappointed.
We have been to Sandals in Ohio Rios and the resort and pools were fabulous but the beach was only as long as the resort with fences on both sides preventing further exporation. The ocean was beautiful.
We have been to Puerto Vallarta and stayed at the Mayan Palace where the pools and resort were fantastic and beach was long and Beautiful. But, it was a bit too quiet. Ocean was nice but in town I wouldn't go in it at all. Couldn't even see through it.
We have been to Cabo San Lucas and walked for miles along the beach stopping at different bars along the way eventually making it to town were there was a good night life. We loved Cabo but don't want to go to the same place twice. The ocean was nice.
We also had an awesome sunset cruise - drinks included - on a catamaran in Cabo and loved it. I don't see that as an option in DR?
1) Are there any nice beaches to walk along? Where?
(More than just the width of a hotel, no garbage, no stink, or not
so rocky that you can't go barefoot)
2) Can we walk to different bars for a drink and put our feet in the
sand while watching people engaged in water activities?
3) Are there any sunset cruises to be offered? Where?
If anyone could help me that would be super as I don't want to make an error on my trade. We only have 1 week every other year.
