Basic Question about DR and what area to stay

I'm starting to look into a spring break trip so can figure out costs. Never been to DR but am interested in finding recommendations as to areas to start to look. I'm posting in this forum because it looked like a widely used one and TA requires me to select one.

Would be myself, husband and two kids (10 and 6). We would consider an all inclusive or might look into getting a large group together and renting a house. Thoughts as to areas to start searching, any recommendations and/or suggestions on where I can look for additional information would be appreciated.

Punta Cana is a great start! The beaches are gorgeous and there are oodles of resorts to choose from depending on what you want to spend. There are also condos to choose from but it I were you, I would go the all-inclusive route for my first trip to DR. The other main resort areas are Puerta Plata and La Romana. You could also post in those forums.

One of the biggest problems (but a good problem) with the punta cana area is there's such a good choice of resorts its tough to know where to start, with the kids ocean blue is a good family resort in my opinion, set a budget see which come into the price range your thinking of and go from there

How long will you be staying? I am a fan of airbnb.com because you can rent furnished rooms and apartments. I have stayed at Iberostar in Punta Cana and I enjoyed the all activities and the location. The food was great but the drinks were weak.
