    I haven’t been to the DR, but I went to Negril last year and it was hands down the most beautiful beach I have ever seen. The sand is beautiful, no seaweed, water is warm and clear. I could go on and on. The one thing I didn’t like was that you do see a lot of poverty and vendors can be pushy – but I wasn’t at an all-inclusive, and I heard that isn’t as much of an issue at the resorts.

    @casjojo:  i honestly couldn’t find a difference in their descriptions except that Couples Swept Away seemed to have more activities. Since we were only going for 4 days, we decided to go to Couples Negril because it was slightly cheaper and we didnt have time for more activities!  However, once i was there, i saw there was SO much to do, i can only imagine being at Couples Swept Away for a week and still not getting to do everything!  if you are anything like me, you will also  just want some time to chill and relax on the beach!!

    Ive been to both and they are both great. I believe DR is cheaper though.

    I thought the beaches in Punta Cana, DR were prettier than the beaches I’ve seen around Jamaica.  The food was better in Jamaica though.  I really didn’t care for much of the food in DR.  DR is usually cheaper and I’d say there are a few more activities around Jamaica.  Jamaican people were also friendlier than in the DR.
