We have never been to Playa/ Riviera area before and we are looking at going there this summer. We will not be traveling with kids-looking for a fun & relaxing place with a nice beach-do not want to be harassed by timeshare sharks- and good (for AI) food. We do not want to have to get up and stand in a line to make reservations. We have stayed at other AI's & in Punta Cana we stayed at Majestic E & paid extra for a preferred section-would you recommend paying extra for this at these resorts or not? What is the typical weather there in July? Thanks for your help!
