Quiet romantic hotel not too close to town?

We are a couple on a budget looking to spend approx $100-150/night (or less) in late March near Las Terrenas. We want to be as close to the beach as possible, and preferably about a mile or 2 away from Las Terrenas for night time activities. We don't want to hear crazy crowds at night.

We'd prefer not to be at a "family" hotel per se. While we know tons of families visit DR, we are really looking for some time to reconnect, not be overwhelmed by tons of kids in the pool. The more privacy the better :-)

Playa Colibri keeps on coming up for my search but it seems like it would be a relatively "loud" place. Hotel Atlantis seems more "adult" but quite far from Las Terrenas.

Any hotel suggestions that fit the bill?

The Colibri, at least when I stayed there in May 2012 was not loud at all. Very quiet in fact. But May is off season. It's about 20 minutes walk to town on the beach. I really enjoyed it and would recommend it.

Weekends are busier, but a lot of guest leave so by Monday's the Hotels are much less full.

I always recommend the Hotel Alisei as it's my personal favourite but it might stretch your budget a bit. It does include breakfast and is about 10 minutes closer to town.

Have stayed at the Colibri (would recommend) once and passed by them both many times. The best part about the area (Playa las Ballenas) is that you can walk a short distance and have a quiet spot all to yourselves and still be able to get to town easily. In late March you will have a few kids around but not a bunch since it is past prime season.

Been visiting Hotel Mariposa quite a lot over the last 2 months, the only children I have seen are the new owners family and they are not much in evidence.
