Right now I'm booked for 14 days at VIM in July. Since I've been home with a broken foot and had nothing else to do, I poked around online enough figured out I can go to the RPDC for $95 pp more. I'm not sure what to do, haven't been to either. We are a group of 5, it's a girl's trip, with our 18 and 22 year old daughters also going. Is RPDC more of a couples resort?
We usually like the pool a lot, would love to be where there is a nice beach, food matters, but we're not "foodies." In December we were at Secrets Wild Orchid in Jamaica and loved it, especially the size of the resort. We don't usually do a lot of excursions, other than a trip to Akumal for a day, usually head into PDC for one day or night of shopping.
So my question is, is it worth it to change hotels? And if we do, it would mostly be for the 18 and 22 year old girls to be near the action. Is it safe for them to go alone in the evening to the bars? It's not really a vacation if I have to worry about them every night, so would it make more sense to go to the VIM and avoid worrying?
Any helpful opinions and thoughts are welcome! Thanks!
