4+ Stars, Adult Only Resort Recommendations!!

It's that time of the year when me and the wife start planning our next all iinclusive vacation!!! And it's also the time for all you helpfull people to point us to our next holiday spot!!!

We are looking at February/March 2012, which is around the corner. We have been to Puerto Plata and now its time to try Punta Cana. If anyone can suggest a great Resort that is a 4+ star, adults only Resort, we would really appreciate your help.

Thanks,

1. Re: 4+ Stars, Adult Only Resort Recommendations!!

I stayed in Excellence PC this past May and it was a great 5* Adults only.

Main things to know..

Its secluded from the resorts (about 45 minutes from the airport) Some people don't like this...there are no really close resorts..

The beach is beautiful, though a golden sand (not white) and the water is on the rougher side (fun for water sports) not great for swimming, though you can walk a little down the beach to calmer waters.

Food was good overall

Service was good

Lots to do.

I may sound like a broken record but have a look at the Grand.

Now I made the mistake of going there for my first trip to the DR and really had a great time. It suited us perfect. Looking again now for 2 weeks this January and keep coming back to the Grand even though more expensive. Not sure what to do as I know if I choose another which there are many AO resorts in PC I may spend two weeks comparing to it and that would not be fair to the next choice.

My wife says if it aint broke don't fix it and don't be so bloody cheap!

I have actually stayed at Iberostar Grand Bavaro and it is really beautiful, however it is a 5 star property but you never know if you can find a deal.

I am hoping to return to Excellence in April. I was there 5 years ago when it was Secrets and it was AMAZING!

We've been to the Gran Bahia Ambar twice and to the Iberostar Grand Bavaro and loved both - both 5*. We're looking into the Punta Cana Princess for an upcoming trip as it's a bit less expensive but still gets very good reviews here.

So far The Catalonia Royal Bavaro has caught the eye of my wife. Can anyone give their opinion on this resort?

Thanks again!!
