I stayed at the majestic elegance in DR several years ago and it was good, the food wasn't great but I don't think it ever will be at an AI. It's not in either location you mentioned but I stayed at secrets Maroma beach in Mexico and loved it. Or have you thought about a non-ai? Aruba was an easy trip with great beaches and good restaurants to try out. I also liked ST. Maarten.

Every time I have been to Jamaica I have loved it.
My favorite place that I have stayed there is called Tryall. We had this amazing chef for our villa and she cooked with a lb of butter per meal and if I died and went to heaven, that is the food I would want to have there.
It's such a nice resort plus you get your own golf cart.

I'm a huge fan of St. Lucia since I lived there for almost a year but since that's not on the table I'd say Jamaica over DR. It's cozier, safer and more of a laid back island vibe. Plus whatever to thinking the food in the DR sucked.

We just got back from Barbados, I would absolutely recommend. We had a great time and the hotel was decently priced and quite nice. If you are set of Jamaica or DR, I would say Jamaica. They are much more tuned to tourism as an integral part of the economy so it ends up being safer and more accommodating to those unfamiliar with local customs.
