Hubby & I are looking to book a long weekend in early May and are considering DR or Cancun. Leaning towards DR as I hear the beaches are much nicer. I have been doing so much research on many of the resorts in DR that I am now SO confused!! We have never done AI before but are considering that option as we will only be there Thur-Sun and not renting a car. However I am NOT a buffet person and have seen consistent reviews regarding bad food at AI's. We are not a fan of mega resorts and usually prefer boutique or smaller resorts......still want to feel pampered, hang by a nice quiet pool having cocktails, and lovely beach. However, have found mixed reviews on the smaller resorts as well. HELP please! We'd like a low-key, romantic getaway, without breaking the bank, and not horribly far from the airport. No plans for any excursions on this trip, just want to hang at resort. Is AI worth it?? Do smaller resorts present higher risk of "stomach" issues? Any insight is appreciated!!
