Welcome to the Punta Cana forums.

You just have to give us a bit more info as to what is more important for you - beaches are a given in Punta Cana - just beautiful How important is entertainment ?, casino ?. disco ?, the a la cartes or types of a la cartes ? , butler service ?, top shelf drinks ? room type ? size of resort ? shopping on site ? number of pools or type ? spas ?- perhaps a price point you would like to stay within.

Just let us know - there are so many terrific AO resorts in Punta Cana, I am sure there will be some great suggestions for you.

If you want low key with a fantastic beach, take a look at the Punta Cana Princess. I think it's excellent bang for your buck. It's not in the same category as the Iberostar Grand or Zoetry but a really solid 4 star that is adults only and great for R&R. I have reviews and pics posted on TA if you want to take a look........have a great anniversary wherever you choose :-)

Budget is the first thing that will eliminate several choices.

It is almost the most important thing to help us suggest places that suit you.

Budget would be 3K, will be an Apple Vacation, 7 nights July low season.

There are some good deals out of St Louis, direct 3 hr flight.

Night life is not us, we are beach bums, early risers and not fancy.

Good books and someone bringing [good] drinks to the beach is what we're looking for.Spa / massage would be nice.

Thanks

My wife and I recently returned from the Royal Suites Turquesa. We stayed in the older section (bldg. #51). Ocean view rooms with LCD TV's,butler/concierge service,the ability to make dinner reservations with butler which guarantees seating at a specific time, bell boy golf cart service,AO,laid back and quiet,separate/exclusive gourmet restaurant,separate/exclusive lobby and the list goes on.

Congratulations on your 40th! Been there, done that a few years ago.

We've been twice to the Gran Bahia Ambar and once to the Iberostar Grand - loved both and would certainly recommend them to you.

Secrets Sanctuary is smaller(190 rooms) and more laid back than most all inclusives. Beautiful resort.
