Greece, Dubai or DR

So my fiance and I are planning to go to one of these countries for our honeymoon. Has anyone been to any of these places? If so any tips or suggestions on what to do there? Best resorts or vacation packages. My FH and I have been to Melia in Punta Cana and loved it so much. He wants to go back and I do too, but I kind of want to try something new. Please help!

    Dubai, while beautiful, I might be leery of at this point.

    Well you can go to the DR anytime. Maybe not anytime but it doesn't even compare to Greece or Dubai so I'd scratch it. Greece would be my recommendation

    FH and I are going to Punta Cana! Edit: FH is also dominican so we are also going to see family.

    Out of those 3, I've only been to Greece. I've only been to 7 countries, but I would have to say it's the most beautiful of the countries I've visited.

    I have not been to Dubai, however it is a very cosmopolitan, modern city. I wouldn't avoid it due to the political climate. That being said, I love DR so freaking much. Samana is one of my favorite places on earth and I would choose that

    Dubai would be my suggest. Just had a client go there on a cruise, It went to Oman as well. It's very safe and a beautiful city. My client said their is no where in the US as nice as Dubai.

    I highly recommend working with Kivotos of Aegean if you're going to Greece. They've helped us plan our entire trip from the time we land in Athens to the day we leave, including airport transfers, hotels, ferries or flights between islands, excursions, dinner reservations/recommendations... They even helped us pick what islands based on what we want to do! We're going to Crete for archeological sites and to hike the Samaria Gorge, then to Santorini for a few days of beaches and sunset sailing trips. We even have a room in Santorini with a private pool and a perfect view of the Oia sunset! We're going in three weeks and couldn't be more excited!!

    Check the weather! FH and I planned on Greece forever until I realized how cold it'd be and that when it's winter there they shut down a lot of islands and restaurants and things of that nature! We actually ended up picking Dubai, but hoping to make it to Greece next summer

    IDK much about Dubia.

    If I hadn't already been to Greece...that would be my 1st choice! I just feel that it'll be easier to get to DR another day.

    What do you like to do/want to experience on your honeymoon. All 3 places sound great, but are VERY different in what you are going to get in terms of activities. My FH lives in Dubai, and I live in a nearby country so I am there about once a month. I love it there, but it is very different than what you are going to find in Greece or DR.

    I would recommend picking the location that is the best fit for what you like/want to do on your honeymoon.

    Greece will still be warm in November :-) not sure what you are looking to do there, but I found an amazing all-inclusive resort in northern Greece when I was searching called Ikos Oceana. Looked absolutely amazing! Also, if you decide to do more of a sightseeing trip, do yourself a favor and include Thessaloniki and Halkidiki in northern Greece. It's a hidden gem and so worth spending time there!

    I definitely agree that you can do DR whenever. It's so close. And much cheaper compared to the other two.

    Because it's your honeymoon I'd personally do Greece (because I was considering it as well). It has the history and beach combination I like. Plus the food is amazing.

    The DR is not even in the same ballpark as the other two options. I think it depends on how much you want to spend! A trip to Greece or Dubai will be much more than a trip to the DR.
