Hi everyone. I will be going to DR (Bavaro) for 7 nights on 29.04.11. I found good deals with 3 hotels and I need advise which one should I choose. First one is " Hotel VIK Arena Blanca", then "Ocean Blue Sands Golf and Beach" and "Barcelo Punta Cana". What I want from a hotel is clean room and bathroom, good food and most important good and plenty of alcohol:), and location as well. I think the first 2 are next to each other but the first one is 100gbp cheaper. Is the Ocean blue worth 100gbp more? Which one would you recommend? I'd also like to ask how busy it is at that time of the year? Thanks

I have been to all 3. My choice would be Ocean Blue/Sand.

We had a great time @ all 3 but prefer Ocean Blue. Its a much quieter resort.
Beach is great & we enjoyed the al la carts!

Lots of not so great reviews on the Barcelo Punta Cana lately.

Happy travels!
