Going to DR in August - stayed at Majestic Colonial in the past. Trying to decide between Rui Palace Macao and Ocean Blue - 6 of us - two late fifties and four girls in twenties. Concerned about quality of food, a la carte reservations and the hotel in general. Stayed at RUI Palace Rivera Maya twice and loved it. Sounds like mixed reviews about RUI Palace and Ocean Blue - would appreciate feedback. Do you need the upgrade to next level at the Ocean Blue. Just want nice beach and relaxing vacation without hassels and complaints.
