First trip out to DR which hotel

Hi this will be our first trip out to DR. I usually travel to Mexico but would like something different. We are looking for pay around £1300 each so Iv been looking at the Riu Palace Macao and the Iberostar Punta Cana. Main things we are looking for are good beach/food/pool/room/service so the usual stuff.

are there any recommendations over which hotel to choose please?

Been to both resorts you mentioned. The only reason I would recommend Riu Macao is that it is all adult. Both are good resorts. Also take a look at Chic, Catalonia Royal Bavaro [ adult oriented resort ].

Thanks for the replies. We have decided on Jamaica for this year now given the seaweed issues.
