Been to Ibero Rose Hall Beach and Majestic Colonial, which are both the "Family/Kids" neighbors to the Adults only resorts you mention.

My opinion - the beach in Punta Cana is nicer than Montego Bay if soft sand and waves are your thing. Montego Bay/Rose Hall is better for snorkeling, but there are some rocky/sea grass areas to avoid. If you're staying at Ibero Grand, you'll have more restaurants and pools at your disposal, but you do have to make reservations at the evening restaurants.

Definitely more worthwhile excursions to do and see in Jamaica versus PC/DR...

Would go to Negril to get better beaches than PC. Been to Majestic Elegence two times so we know what they offer. Would check out Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away which is much better in every way than ME.

Couples resorts are much more expensive than Majestic Elegance though - about $1K USD.

Jamaica vacations are usually more expensive than in the DR.
