Best Resort on Bavaro Beach

We have our tickets booked for April 30th - May 7th. Now all we have to do is find a resort. My husband would like to stay on Bavaro beach as we stayed at the Occidental Grand in 2007 and he loved the beach.

Any recomendations would be geratly appreciated.

Bavaro beach is a very long beach dotted with many many resorts, the best area IMHO is from Cortecito north to the Princess Caribe and has the Occidental right in the middle.

the beach width doesn't materially change all the way from corticito to the majestic--at least not enough to make a major difference in 'most cases' imo(except it narrows to about 40' width in front of the Cayenna part of LTI)--it is about 70' width in front of IB Bavaro-ideal imo--then expands to 115' in front of IB Dominicana and to 140' in front of some of the RIU's (too wide imo) and back to about 70' in front of the Majestic.

If you want adults only at a reasonable price, you might consider the Ambar section of the Bahia--Ambar is very compact and all rooms quite close to the beach. The price is also sensible---Alternatively, Royal Suites Turquesa adjacent to corticito--or Punta Cana Princess right next to Caribe/Trop Princess.

If you don't mind a few kids and like a lot of foliage and 'ambiance', IB Bavaro wins hands down imo--another compact resort with a 4min walk beach to buffet.

We are returning to IBB next week and no doubt will probably looking for an alternative if we stay on Bavaro Beach in feb 2010--at the moment, I would be mainly focusing on RS Turquesa or the Ambar

The Bavaro beach is beautiful.

I have three resorts to recommend, Palladiums, Melias and Iberostars. All three are great resorts.
