Back from the Hard Rock, where do i book next year?

Hi guys,

Hard rock was awesome (besides the food), and it's time to start thinking of where to book next February's vacation (we're thinking of also going away in August - we usually take a week and sit around here, why not sit at a resort?)

What are the 2 or 3 resorts "most" people talk about the most on the forums or recommend?

I seem to read the Bahia Ambar section and Colonel Majestic are a great choice. What else in that $2000-$2800 price range per person?

Check-out Punta Cana's brand-new adult-only Breathless resort. By the time you want to travel, all of their 'growing pains' will have subsided and it will be a top choice destination!

Have you considered other Caribbean islands? For your budget and departure gateway, there are a number of places to experience besides Punta Cana.

I'm so used to flying with Transat or Sunwing with a package and heading to Punta Cana or The Mayan.

Where else would you recommend?

I have not considered other islands, but would if i could get some help.

Dustin W:

Just for example, if you wanted to stick with Sunwing or Transat from Ottawa, they have packages to Jamaica as well as Cuba (in addition to where you've already been, that being Punta Cana and Riveria Maya).

Stayed at the Melia Cayo Coco last year.

I don't think i will ever head to Cuba again :)

Besides Jamaica, Cuba, Dominican and Mexico - any other spots i should go that are responsibly priced?

We will be booking either the Majestic or Bahia Amber for February as soon as prices are available. I would love some help for July/August.

<<<<Besides Jamaica, Cuba, Dominican and Mexico - any other spots i should go that are responsibly priced?>>>>

What about a cruise and visit a few different islands?,,,, Celebrity Cruise has a 1 2 3 promo going on which means the "all you can drink" packages are "FREE" :)

Only thing is the promo ends Feb 28th (as it's been going on for a few months now) so you have to book a cruise for whatever month by the 28th to get the drink package for free.

Would you be interested in a villa?

Otherwise, what about Paradisus Palma Real? Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe?
