    Good

    Big green territory is good for rest and walks, good swimming pools and jacuzzis, close to the airport

    to my opinion, i'd rate this hotel as 4 stars.there were some things i didnt like- food was not cooked well(not tasty),no real sea-food in the menu, though it's sea resort.In the thematic restaurants they don't cook the food like it should be(italian, american and so on- not really like food of these countries) In the room some stuff was missing- DVD, hammock,promised surprise for guys. fan wasnt working.Poor drain in the bathroom- water was flowing in the corridor.And on 2nd week of our stay water started to flow from the ceiling of the upper floor and they didnt move us to other room or do smth about it, so it got really messy.Door chain was broken too. Romantic dinner actually wasnt free and to use сatamaran they asked us 25$

    Fabulous

    Very good hotel for its price. Delicious all-inclusive meal at plenty of restaraunts.Nice pools, beach is not over-crouded. Staff is friendly, but sometime it takes time to get understanding of what you really want :)

    1) Only one car rental in the hotel (Prestige rent-a-car) with not good service (the longest and complicated procedure of getting car rented I ever had!). Although prices are a little bit lower then Europcar and Avis in Bavaro. 2) Stupid system of 200$ limit when you want to pay by charging the room. 3) Very shallow ocean on the beach.

  • 6.6
    Good

    Very nice pools, sizeable clean rooms, friendly staff, pretty grounds.

    Tried to charge more than we booked for; problem getting adjoining rooms; seaweed-filled ocean; mediocre food and slow waitstaff, zero entertainment on the Royal side. A bit dull.

    Some of your staff in your eating areas were not friendly !! Would not come back for that reason!! We had room service and the guy seamed to have a real chip on his shoulder, I guess that is what you get when you book with one of the cheape hotels drinks were very bad, stick with the beer

    Very good

    The best part of it was our room, which is why we chose the hotel in the first place. We had a loft suite with a private infinity pool and jacuzzi inside. We loved our room, which was very important, since we were on our honeymoon. It was also raining for half of our trip, so the room was where we stayed a lot. Absolutely recommend this for honeymooning couples, who want to spend all their time together in a quiet and beautiful place. The good thing is that we could also use all of the facilities of the neighbouring Catalonia Bavaro Beach, which was a family resort and had much more activities and sports and music. So we could have our piece and quiet and switch to action whenever we wanted. Also, having access to this hotel really expanded our dining options. We almost never ate at the same place twice in the 6 nights we were there.

    Before you read this, know that we absolutely loved our time at this hotel!!! The following is not a complaint, but rather an honest review of the things that you would encounter there that might not be as good as you'd expect. The weakest part about the hotel was its level of service. While some staff were extremely friendly and helpful (like Carlos who checked us in and sent us 3 complimentary bottles of liquor to our room when he found out it was our honeymoon), others were almost annoyed with having to do anything for us at all. For example, we would ask for a glass of wine with our lunch, which would not come for about 10 minutes. So we would kindly ask again, and the staff would nearly scoff and roll their eyes at us. Then they'd take another 10 minutes to serve us. The food was also not very good. I've been to other Punta Cana resorts that were WAY better. The hotel is full of elderly couples, so if you are looking to meet young people and party, this is not your place. On the other hand, if you want privacy and romance: you've got it! The beach was nice, but there was not a single wave. It's a very quiet part of the bay and there are not even ripples. So if you like playing in waves, there is no chance you'd get this here. The nightly show at Catalonia Bavaro Beach was awful. I've been to many Caribbean resorts and this was by far the worst and most-amateur production. A couple of other small things: 1) The cleaning staff NEVER knocked on the door before entering to clean. This could make for a very awkward situation, so either, put your deadlock on, or hang up your do not disturb sign on the door handle, when you don't want to be walked in on. 2) Our remote-control curtains were awesome! BUT our remote seemed to be tuned to the same frequency as all the other remotes in neighbouring rooms. As a result, the curtains would often open or close on their own, sometimes at particularly uncomfortable moments. Just something to keep in mind. :)

    Superb

    The grounds of the resort are beautiful. The pools were especially wonderful. The food and drinks were excellent and the resort offers a great value for the money. The staff and service were terrific and my room was great - big, luxurious, and always kept spotless.

    The beach was nice but there was a lot of sea grass. The water was very clean and warm and refreshing though.

    Exclusive

    top resort, great adult-only place, food is good especially for all inclusiv resort, great beach, no plastic sunbeds, the rooms (junior deluxe suite) fits with great design, try to get into the bulding 36 top floor (close to the beach), no animation...

    it is an all inclusiv resort and you have to like it...

    Superb

    Beach, food and restaurants, location, adult-only resort, ambience, infinity pool, drinks, top-shelf liquor, no dining reservations required, short ride to airport, beach/pool chairs, daybeds, access to additional facilities at sister resort, fruit juice bar on the beach. Reasonably priced wine list if desire to have other than house wine. Most staff was very friendly and helpful. Awesome hotel for a great all- inclusive vacation!

    Bed was very firm, and pillows were lumpy. Outside areas heavily used by smokers, without non-smoking zones enforced. Beach is great but resort is surrounded by undeveloped beaches, limiting opportunities for long beach strolls in maintained areas. Water sports company (scubaquatic) staff very rude and unprofessional. Waiting staff inconsistent and lacking coordination.

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Having an executive room with your own swimming pool. It's a quite hotel which made for a very relaxing holiday.

    The food wasn't great in the majority of the restaurants. Some of the facilities were neglected to be a five star hotel, little things such as phones not properly attached to the wall,etc. All entertainment takes places at the next door hotel, which makes difficult to know what's on each day. Perhaps a presentation with all the activities available at the beginning of the holiday would have helped.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Very beautifully landscaped resort. The front desk staff and the wait staff were very friendly and helpful. The concierge Francisco was great and made numerous phone calls to retrieve my jacket which I left in the cab from the airport. The wonderful staff was a big factor to make our stay a memorable one. The Junior Suite was large with a comfortable bed and a large round bath tub. In addition it had a spacious tiled shower and a separate toilet. We enjoyed the balcony with its hammock for a quiet moment after the beach. The food in the various restaurants was good and we liked the beach restaurant, open 24hours, when we couldn't eat during regular hours. Lots of activities on site and a fun nightly varying show. Great place. We'll definitely go back

    Superb

    The Royal was very well groomed from the front door through the pool and garden areas all the way to the beach - very impressive. All the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble for them, and they are just as happy to speak English or Spanish. They have just been voted as "best place to work" in the area, and it is reflected in their attitude. The restaurants were very good in general, and the food quality was pretty high. It´s good to be able to use the bars/rests. Of the other part of complex, for variety, and as a Royal guest you need no reservations, and there is no limit on how often you can use one restaurant. The Beach area was fantastic, very relaxed, plenty of space, great bar service to your sunlounger...what more can you ask for ??
