So we have finally decided to book our honeymoon for Punta Cana, Dominican Republic! Yeah!!! Why do you ask? Simply put, we get more bang for our buck! We have a huge goal to save up enough money to buy a home soon in California in preperation for our big move out there. We even considered nixing a honeymoon. But quickly came to our senses and decided to something more affordable yet memorable. I'm so excited and wish we were already going next week! Haha, but lets back up a bit because we are in a major predicament, we can't make up our mind on which resort to pick!! So ladies and gentelmen, I introduce to you:
OUR TOP CONTENDERS:
1) Majestic Colonial - A more established five star resort, rated number one on Tripadvisor (my travel bible), has a honeymoon offer (i'm a sucker for free stuff), and has some solid reviews on Tripadvisor. A tad cheaper than Majestic Elegance (by a few bucks). Gorgeous beach I hear.
2) Majestic Elegance - The new baby in the Majestic Family. Right next to Majestic Colonial and it looks very promising. Due to it's recent grand opening in November, there are a lot of kinks and growing pains. This has caused them to have some really bad reviews on Tripadvisor. Hmmm.. But it IS newer and supposedly an "upgraded" version of Majestic Colonial. Gorgeous beach, here as well (duh it's right next door to MC).
3) Excellence Resort - Supposedly Creme de la creme in Punta Cana. My buddy Jackie G (of Jackie G Photography in Texas, soon to be California) is staying here and I am envious! Its about $100 more expensive than the two above but it has a big "Adults Only" section. The only major major drawback for us is that the beach is "rougher" and the sand isnt white. Trivial, I know, but we're major beach lovers and love tranquil beaches!
