First time to DR

What are the best all inclusive resorts, not too pricey, for 2 females in the middle 20s that want to have fun? Looking to go at the end of August. Good entertainment, music, food, alcohol, atmosphere, younger crowd, less couples and more singles, etc. is important. We're deciding between Majestic Colonial or Excellence. All info and details greatly appreciated.

Majestic is a good choice and in a good location if you want to take short taxi rides to "off" resort things... Excellence I would say no, it's adults only which tends to not attract young lively crowds (not saying the older ones are not lively lol) It is also way up North so expensive taxi fares to get to places "off" resort.

Another one you may want to look at that attracts a younger lively crowd with a disco that is included is the Bahia complex.

Here is a few youtubes of the Bahia disco to give you an idea.

Thank you. We will most likely check out the Majestic. Any suggestions on things to see and places to visit off the resort?

I really only know about Elegance (been 5x) but feels like more couples, older crowd. Colonial still not "lively" for 20's from what I have seen

What about Breathless from those who have been there?

Breathless (only my opinion) is supposed to be geared to the younger more hip crowd but some that been there a few times mentioned it's more a 30/40s crowd.

There is a dj pool party each day at 4pm and they do have the after dark disco... Only problem I see with Breathless is the location. I mean for the younger 20s if "hypothetically" they get there and the nightlife aspect is not what they expected. Would be expensive taxi fares to get to other places since Breathless is up in Uvero Alto.

To the OP this map below might be helpful for you as it shows the location of each resort.. El Cortecito area is where you would find bars, restaurants, etc.
