tripadvisor Traveler Reviews
  • Denise D : Windsor, United Kingdom

I will end up with arthritis in my thumb if I type how much of a disappointment this place was! Staff are unbelievably rude, the restaurants are always out of food, or it’s stone cold!! The rooms are dirty!!! The sunbeds are broken and mouldy!! Blood stained sheets on our bed!! We had one shower towel between 2 people at one point!! The only time me and my partner had a good time was when we were alone by the pool or on the beach!! For a 5* hotel it’s disgraceful! I would rate this more a 2*!! Me and my partner get better service in McDonald’s. The lady in the coffee shop Nayeli, her manners were unbelievably disgraceful!!!!! I would like to say thank you to Maria and Johanna the ladies by the pool bar, for making us happy by the pool and beach! This place is like Dominican Butlins!

Two weeks of bliss

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two weeks at the beginning of October. It was a wonderful trip and I cannot recommend this hotel enough.The food was amazing. Breakfast in the buffet was the best I have every seen at an all inclusive resort. The entertainment was also 10/10. Every night was different it made our time in Punta Cana fun and enjoyable. They put on a foam party every Friday and the day before we went, there was a balloon fight in the pool which we loved! In particular, Malaida was fantastic. She shone through as a real star and made sure everyone was always smiling.Our favourite place to hang out during the day was by the pool near the beach. The beach bar has the nicest cocktails and they are a great bunch of people. I'd like to thank Edwin in particular, along with Yeraldin, Arismendy, Maria, Juana, Yeison and Elibania for making our trip even better, The burger stall is a real treat too.The steak restaurant was our favourite place to eat in the evening - the food is incredible, in particular the fillet. The rooms are clean and spacious. The downstairs rooms don't have a view but we spent most our time out anyway. The beach is kept tidy and is as beautiful as you would expect from a Caribbean island. We would definitely recommend the Royalton to anyone else looking to visit Punta Cana.

Noisy neighbors

Walls are paper thin. If I have to wake up to “I will always love you” blasting at 3am again I will seriously go crazy. This is not an adults only resort. We have small children. Regardless of that, not everyone traveling is there to party all hours. People be courteous to fellow guests and stay at the bar/nightclub if you want to be loud all hours. The resort is very nice. Staff is great. Our butler Reyson is super nice and attentive. We have a diamond club room. Fridge is stocked daily with coors light and Heineken as well as pop.Asian restaurant was our favorite so far. We were already full when we arrived at Hunter’s so can’t give an honest review.Lots of beach chairs and cabana beds however weather has been cloudy and rainy so if it turns nice it may seem busier. Never a big line up for drinks. Anyways the party next door is finally over so that’s it for now. 320AM. Trying to get back to sleep....

Nice resort, good visit!

Had a lovely stay for a wedding. I'll say right off, all inclusives are not my typical vacay but I have to say I enjoyed it. Accommodations are very nice, clean and modern (we stayed in building 6). I liked the pace of the resort- at 85% occupancy but never felt crazy busy. Walked down the beach and saw that other resorts were insanely busy - very overwhelming. Service from everyone here was prompt enough and with a friendly smile. Our butler Joseline was always available to help us with dinner reservations (Diamond Club perk). Lots of people selling their stuff on the beach and on resort but they were not pushy. A simple, polite 'no thank-you' was all was needed. Food at the buffet was good I thought. I certainly didn't starve :). Restaurants were okay - nothing spectacular but decent quality and enough variety. Coffee shop was great! Memories waterpark was a fun way to spend a few hours. Spent most time at the beach. It was clean with comfortable lounge chairs, fresh towels and large shaded umbrellas if you want. Decent gym but needs better lighting. Entertainment is average but frankly not my thing anyway. I would recommend this resort. Seemed to appeal to a broad range of people and seemed good for families. Not sure Diamond Club is necessary or not. Only pet peeve was people smoking on the beach. So all in all, not bad at all.

Hideaway - preferred this to the Cancun hotel.

I want to start my review by saying there isn't an option to do 4 1/2 stars as this only just falls short of 5. I will also make reference to royalton Riviera cancun , I stayed hideaway there and will make comparisons. Upon my arrival I was upgraded to hideaway as it had recently opened. Got into our room and the air con was stuck on 26 degrees ( the same as outside) so I went down the reception and within 10 minutes a handy man was in the room fixing it. The rest of our stay was without fault , there were tiny niggles but let's be honest nowhere is perfect.The hideaway section is lovely and quiet , not like cancun which I found to be a bit of a party by the pool. The rooms are standard with nice tiled floors and the smart televisions ( you can order room service through them , rent films and receive messages from your operators). The bathroom and mirror area is small but for me it was clean and I rarely spend time in my room. The buildings and grounds are beautiful. Cleaned and tended to constantly. All the restaurants and bars are spotless and the food and drink is of a very good standard. ( there is top shelf alcohol you just have to ask for it - Sky vodka , remy martin Brandy , Bombay gin etc) the restaurants go in this order for me 1. Dorado ( hideaway only- awesome fish and steak is nice too) 2. Hunter ( steak and grill - good quality food) 3. Mexican ( memories side of the hotel but food is very nice) 4. Italian ( good mix of Italian food) 5. Buffet ( good selection , all hot , very busy) 6.jade ( nice idea but their idea of Asian food differs from what I know). Overall all food was good , nothing was ever cold or undercooked. The beach here is to die for. I went to Soana island and was actually disappointed because the beach at this resort is beautiful. It is raked and cleaned every morning and the staff take great care looking after it. Why didn't this get 5 stars ? - the rooms aren't as plush as in cancun and the hotel doesn't seem as posh or polished. Which one would I choose ? - Dominican every time. It's quieter, more personal and the hotels seems and feels much smaller. This hotel is not as posh and sparkly new as cancun but it feels much more homely. There is no real difference in food or alcohol. Finally the staff- the Dominican people are lovely. The staff here are amazing. Special mention to Juan at the hideaway bar. I would say he is one of the best bar tenders I have ever experienced. On the first day he asked my name , where I am from , what I drink and how I like it. He looked after me for 2 weeks and made some of the best cocktails I have tasted. All the chefs , gardeners , pool staff , entertainers and waitresses all make a real effort for this hotel. Unlike cancun tipping doesn't change the level of service. Book and come , it's not posh , glitz and glamour. Will you have an amazing time ...... YES. Tip- there is a well stocked shop on site but it is expensive ! Bring your sun stuff with you ! The cigar shop is also expensive. We booked excursions through nexus in the main lobby. Very helpful and gave discount with multiple orders.
