As always, I plan my vacations based on all of your expertise! Last year, my husband and I went to the Royal Haciendas for our honeymoon. We loved it!! A couple negatives of it: NOTHING goes on after 7 pm. I mean the resort is dead. We are 25 years old, we like our sleep, but are very social! Also, didn't love the taxi drive to 5th ave. it wasn't long, but it would be nice to be able to walk there!
We are looking to book our next trip this June. We are debating going back to the Haciendas because the price is right, but I would like to maybe try something different? Here are our issues though: I like something "smaller" some of the resorts are SO big, I don't want to have to be on a golf cart getting around the grounds. Also, we have never done AI before, so we would like to try it this year for fun! Would love to be some what close to 5th ave. and here is the BIG kicker...we are two teachers, last year we went for 2,000. We are trying to keep at around that price (or max 2,300) for this year as well!
Anyone have ANY suggestions? I have looked at Blue Bay Grand, Sandos, Grand Riveria Princess, Ocean Maya, etc. they all seem so big?
Thanks for your help!!
