Depart Feb 3-4 and still have have not booked... see list

We're trying to stick to a budget and here are the options that respect it. I know this is very basic question and we are looking at the ratings on T.A.. I just like to get personal recco's from some posters. We are in early 30's and just looking for nice pools, beach, and I like to do a casino a few nights but it doesn't have to be in property (maybe property with no casino would be smart lol).

we can always break the budget but if we can avoid doing that, and be happy with any of the listed hotels, all the better... More we skimp out on the hotels more we'll have to play with at casinos, sightseeing excursions etc..

Here's what fits in our budget:

Barcelo Puerto Plata

Be Live G.M

Cofresi

Grand Paradise P.Dorada

Riu Bachata

Riu Merengue

Breaking the bank a bit,

Ibero $400

Blue Bay 300$

Any advice is appreciated.. I know very subjective and general but thanks for helping anyways!

We've only stayed at the Rui complex out of that list. It was nice, they treated us very well, the food was OK but the beach wasn't the best. It was a bit out of the way, we felt isolated there.

Casino is on site, Club is on site, very nice resort, beautiful beach...

Also not in the big hotel complex (Playa Dorado) which is next door but is nest to the Iberostar which is directly next door.
