I'm looking to book a 14 night holiday next January for my husband and I - it will be my birthday and his 50th while we are there, so looking for something a bit special. We have stayed here before at the Iberostar Bavaro, which we loved. The only problem with returning is we had some bad news from home while we were there last time and I am worried that it may bring back some bad memories for us. I thought I'd made a final decision with the Excellence but having watched the videos of it on You Tube, I'm a bit put off that the sea and beach is more rough than we liked at the Iberostar.
So, I need some suggestions, please? We have no kids, not against them but would like a less family orientated resort. Food is of great importance and somewhere that is not deserted at night (although we don't want anywhere rowdy!) Also, I would like the beach front to be similar to that we have experienced at the Iberostar if possible. Budget-wise, the Excellence was about our top-end so this prices out the Iberostar Grand (might be a bit too posh anyway!)
We would like somewhere a bit more special but still with a relaxed atmosphere - any ideas much appreciated in this minefield!
