I’ve booked a surprise holiday to celebrate my other half’s 40th birthday in mid September.
Neither of us have ever been to the Dominican before. Apparently September is hurricane/rainy season however as I’m restricted on dates I decided to just go for it and hope for the best (a bit of rain won’t stop us having a good time but a hurricane may be an issue, fingers crossed)
I’ve booked the Riu Palace Macao but I’m wondering if I’ve chosen the right hotel. Quite a few reviews have said it’s an older crowd staying at this hotel, not that the age of the crowd matters much to us but I don’t want to be in a really quiet resort. We’re not exactly party animals but I’m not ready to hang up my dancing shoes and go to bed early early either. One of my reasons for booking the Macao was because it’s adults only, I thought it would be nice to relax and get away from kids as we have 2 of our own at home. I guess i’m just getting cold feet as it’s a surprise so it’s all on me if it’s wrong. Any advice would be appreciated, is the Macao mega quiet? should I stick with the Macao? Or would I maybe be better off swapping to somewhere a bit livelier?
