After some help and advice as to your top 3 resort destinations.
I know it’s a tough call, but I and my wife are looking to visit the island again in January. (It’s a long way off, but we can’t wait to get back).
We have visited the Dom Rep 3 times in total, firstly the Hamaca resort in Bayahibe about 8 years ago, then Sunscape The Beach 2 years ago, and most recently Edenh, (we were married at Edenh in January!). All of these resorts proved to be a great choice, but given we are going to be celebrating our first anniversary, we hoped we might be able to pick your brains and find that special place!!
As with many of the resorts, they are very close in what’s on offer. Hence we keep going back, always guaranteed a good time! But because of this, we are finding it harder and harder to beat the last visit.
What we hope to find:
Great Beach/Ocean. (Sunscape was a little disappointing in this respect due to the nature of the coast line, very strong currents etc) So south of the island seems the better choice.
Great food. We are a couple of foodies, not fussy, just like to eat VERY well. Also, a well tried and tested reservation system, or better still, none at all would be good. Edenh really suffers due to this.
Pools. Got to have great pools, I know most if not all tick this box.
Bars/Nightlife. Although Edenh offered a lovely tranquil feel, the night times were a little dull. No beach parties/beach bars, and the attempt at a disco was pretty lame.
Room facilities. By far the best room we have ever had was at Sunscape. We had a suite, with huge 4 poster bed, wet room, lounge area and best of all a large Jacuzzi tub on the balcony, Heaven!! Also good room service, (menu choice etc).
Activities. My partner likes to join in with the various daytime events. Aerobics, Dancing etc.
Not so important:
Kids. (Not yet!) So an adult’s only resort is a possibility.
Tours. We like to relax so aren’t too fussed with getting out and about.
Thank you all in advance for any thoughts/help.
