They all seem lovely!
We are in the same boat... no site visits for us!
Pick out the things that matter most to you, and then go with the resort that has the reviews that best match that.
For us, we wanted somewhere we have never been with a 'wow' factor, and relaxation. So we are choosing Cayo Levantado in Samana (DR). But, if that doesn't work out, Dreams Punta Cana will probably be a big factor (we cannot book until May). That was the first one I looked at, and really loved.
There is just something about being on a secluded little island though.... off the tourist path... so that is why we changed our focus. HOWEVER, there is a downside to everything. Secluded, yes... active night life... certainly not. And not too many excursions either. We just hope our guests are okay with what is there.
So, decide your priorities, and then list your favourites according to that. I literally had checklists going...
Then, forget it all and go with your gut. I am sure you won't be disappointed!

I'm finding it really hard to choose a resort only based on pictures and reviews! We don't have the money or time to do site visits, so I really am basing it on other people's opinions. I'm just worried we won't make the right choice and end up at a resort we don't enjoy. I think this is the most stressful part! So happy to have found this thread. I'm looking forward to hearing about everyone's planning.

Also I am basing my decision not only on what I like but on what my family and friends can afford and that makes it 10x harder.. I am interested in Dreams Punta Cunta, Riu Hotel & Resort and Majestic Colonial and a few others..lol too many I guess, but I just wanna make sure I get the most for my money of course..Over all the best word to describe how I feel is overwhelm.. Any suggestions lady?? Any idea is more then welcome..
