Alternative to Hyatt Ziva

I need some help. I was planning to go to Hyatt Ziva but the price drastically gone up and we are also taking our mother in law with us so need to reduce our the budget. What other family resort would you recommend? What I like at HZ is smaller size, great service, food and lovely beach. We are going in December, 3 adults and 1 year old baby. My friend recommended Riu Punta Cana but I found out there is over 600 rooms. Is it really crowded there?

Many thanks for your help.

I would say that RIU is a step or 2 below Ziva IMO. One option would be Dreams Onyx which is also a modern family resort with a nice beach and fun wading pool for young kids right on the beach. Good food and additional access to Breathless next door for adults.

Hyatt was my first choice but the prices really have gone up over the last couple of months - my next choice was Hilton La Romana - prices are on the rise for this resort as well but still way less than Hyatt (from Canada anyways). We ended up booking Dreams Onyx as suggested but for me I feel like we are compromising on the beach a bit - I don’t think you can compete with the Caribbean beaches though! It was considerably more affordable than the Hilton and Hyatt.

Dreams Royal Beach could be another suggestion. It looks beautiful! There is a great Facebook page for this resort with lots of good information and pictures!
