Beth-NY,

Hey, settle down. Another resort to add to your list is the Iberostars,(Iberostar Punta Cana, Dominicana and Bavarro) specifically the Bavarro. You can't go wrong with this chain of resorts. The Bavarro is made up of all jr. suites, and you can eat at like 11 restaurants. I your are familiar with Apple Vacations, it ranks 6 golden apples.

My husband and I are going to the Iberostar in La Romana, DR in a few weeks. Anyways, my parents stayed at the one in punta cana a few years ago and had good things to say!

Hope this helps a little, I know how hard it can be to pick a place to spend your hard earned cash!

Where can you get the best price?

Ocean Blue/Sands have king size beds. It's nice sleeping on a bed you know hundreds of other people haven't slept on.

When I stayed beginning of March - I was the first person to stay in the room I was in everything was very clean other than still having a bit of construction dust.

Well i work for continental airlines so i get pretty good discounts......free airfare at least that saves alot coming from ny.......iit looks like for 6days at the Barcelo palace...i would pay for two $1,097.00 at the Grand Flamenco occidental for a grand romance room $898.00 for there deluxe room $687.00 i think for ocean blue it was $859.00 ...for 6days....

Beth, not to throw another resort into the mix, but....if you are looking for nice beds....I have read that the Bahia (also new resort) has nice pillow top mattresses.

Beth, I am not positive about the beach name, maybe someone else will know that. However, in reading the trip reports on two sites and looking at photos on both, the beach looks very wide and beautiful. Take a look at the trip reports and pictures and you can see for yourself. The resort has been open almost a year (opened June 2004).

Here is a link to the trip reports....

According to the new trip report, it is on Bavaro Beach! Sounds like the perfect combination for you.....
