My husband and I are travelling with 2 other friends September 1-6, 2014. We are celebrating my birthday and our anniversary. It will be our first time to the DR, or any AI resort for that matter. We don't mind spending a little more, but we do have a friend that is on a tighter budget, so we would like to find something a little cheaper that is still amazing. We are torn between the standard Suite at the Bavaro Princess (not upgrading to VIP), the Platinum level at the Punta Cana Princess (Same price as the standard at the Bavaro Princess, even with the upgrade), or possibly even staying at a slightly less expensive location. We would love to go all out, but unfortunately we have to stay in a certain budget so everyone can go. Any suggestions or previous stay advice that might give us ideas? Thanks ahead of time for your help!!
