Adults only all inclusive for 50th bday girls celebration

We're a group of soon to be 50 yr old women, friends since childhood, ready to celebrate our bdays and lifelong friendships. We're looking for: adults only, all inclusive, 4 nights, budget is about $1500 including air any week in April 2014. We'd like an updated resort, top shelf liquor and craft beers, good wine selection, excellent non buffet dining options, beautiful beach and pool lounging. Closer to airport would be helpful in case of early departure flights. All first timers to the DR. When is the best time to book? Thanks for the advice!

April is when Easter is for 2014. You may find anything after the first week may have inflated pricing. We were looking at 2nd week and the price was higher then usual for that time period.

I don't know about craft beers, but I think Iberostar Grand Bavaro, Secrets Royal Beach, and Royal Suites Turquesa would all fit the bill and within that budget (assuming you mean per person). Secrets would be closest to the airport, and IGB the furthest.

Excellence and Breathless would also be good choices, but they are an hour or so from the airport. I'm making assumptions about Breathless, because it hasn't opened yet (Nov 15). But it's by the same company as Secrets and is supposed to be on par with it, but less couples oriented.

Take a look at barcelo bavaro beach. It is only 15 mins from the airport. It does not have craft beer..does have to shelf liqueurs and you do have to book restaurants. It is part of a large complex and you can use the facilities of all. The BBB is a small adult section..great beah..lots of chairs. I prefer the buffet to the restaurants.

Isn't there a ban on alcohol for Easter week?

The "Ban" does not usually affect resorts....

Hands down for all the perks you mention I believe the Iberostar Grand Bavaro is by far the best choice. I have stayed at Barcelo and not even close to Iberostar in terms of food quality, liquor quality, wine selections, service, etc.

It may cost you a bit over your budget but money well spent. Play with the dates till you get the price you want. Quiet adult only resort but plenty of top shelf, an included wine list that is good, beach/pool concierge and butler to handle your special requests.

Night life is mainly the lobby bar and then shows.

Restaurants are top notch.

Service is superb.

7 weeks....wooooooohooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!
