Advice on which resort is best for us!!

Okay so I have bee down south quite a few times but I havent been to Punta Cana yet. Planing on going this April. The problem is U cant decide on which resort to pick. So there is about 5 of us that go all women...ages 30-43 some single some married. We are looking for a clean resort reasonable food with great pools beach and night life. Not looking for a spring break kind of partying just not wanting to go to the dico and being the only ones there lol. If anyone could give me some suggestions that would be great :) Thanks in advance

Are you looking for adults only? Do you have a specific budget? Do you prefer larger or smaller resorts?

Something else that you may want to take into account is the bathroom set up at resorts. Especially with a group of friends travelling together. The newer design for alot of resorts is a more open bathroom set up. Some people are ok with it others are not. Have read reviews where couples even have problems with this arrangement.

What a hoot!! Just booked The Riu Palace Macao last night. Five girls, some married ,some not going for a girls getaway the first week in April. It was very hard picking. We went to Punta Cana five years ago and stayed at The Royal Catalonia. It was nice but wanted to try someplace different. We also were looking for an adults only resort. With that being said, we booked 2 rooms, 2 in one room and 3 in the other room at the Riu. We've read some negatives about every resort but have had good luck with the Riu resorts in Playa Del Carmen.

Maybe we'll run into you girls. We always beach it in the morning and pool it in the afternoon. Good luck in your search.

Does the Riu Macao have a private bathroom set up for friends?

Also to anyone that have been to the Riu's, what is some differences and comparisons of Macao and Riu Palace Bavaro, besides Macao being all adult only. And does the Palace Bavaro have private bathroom set ups?

Have only been to 1 Riu property and it was in Puerto Vallarta.

I would suggest looking at the Grand Bahia Principe resort as this would seem to match ur criteria :-)

Bahia Principe would not be a good choice if you're looking to avoid a spring break atmosphere. It is huge and the beach is very crowded. It is also listed on S-Trips as a spring break destination.

Majestic Elegance would be a good spot for a girls trip, I think.

Majestic Elegance is a good choice as Mark stated.

Also look into the Bahia Principe Ambar...
