El Dorado Casitas Royale OR Le Blanc ...and why?

So hubby has decided try to get away for a few days in October (he owns a business so getting away even just for a few days is sometimes easier said then done).

We were at El Dorado Casitas Royale last September (see my review!) we had the Infinity Pool Swim Up Suite and it was AMAZING! He hasn't stopped talking about it since them... And also since then we've been to Paradisus La Perla, Hard Rock Punta Cana and Sandals Royal Bahamian a few weeks ago.

I had some friends just come back from Le Blanc (and are avid Sun Palace fans) and they have me convinced! Hubby says he will do it but then changed his mind bc the rooms are pretty... Standard. I know the service is supposed to be amazing (yet never been to anywhere in Mexico it hasn't). We just did butler service at Sandals and although it was nice it wasn't something I need (much rather have our own pool)

Anyone been to both? I actually am quite excited to go back to El Dorado but I'm always up for trying something new.

So ladies and gents- sell me on it!

We have stayed 4x at Le Blanc and 3x at Casitas. For us, LeBlanc is the winner hands down.

We much prefer the smaller size of LB, the beautiful beach, the location, the top shelf liquor available in all bars, the nice included wine selection, the stunning views from most rooms, the extensive room service options, the consistently excellent service throughout the resort, and the fabulous spa and fitness center. We also prefer the pools at LB and the included (and fast) wifi and international calling.

There was really no aspect of Casitas we preferred to LeBlanc.
