This beachfront hotel is just for adults and comes with a wealth of bars and first-class restaurants.
This hotel has its own private stretch of white-sand beach, which comes with palapas, daybeds and waiter service. For getting around all the bars and restaurants in the complex, there's a special buggy service for guests.
At this adults-only hotel, the pool is a picture of calm. It's equally peaceful in the restaurants, where lobster and Champagne are the norm. In the evenings, it's all about relaxed cocktails with some light entertainment.
Nestling amongst the palm trees in the centre of the resort gardens, you'll find the main pool. Fringed with straw huts and loungers, with a swim-up bar in its midst and whirlpool baths built in, this really is an ideal place to sit back, relax and let the world go by.
Situated next to the pond at the Grand Palladium Bavaro, the bar serves a range of snacks, including pizza, sandwiches, burgers, nachos and ice cream. Open all day, the bar has an outdoor smoking section, as well as a billiard table and internet facilities.
These honeymoon suites are stylish with their pastel tones and complimentary soft furnishings. They have a balcony for that bit of fresh air. And they come with a king-size bed, and a lounge area. Plus, you'll also find air-conditioning, a minibar, an audio-dock, and a flatscreen TV included.

Just came back from a week holiday in this hotel!
We really had a relaxing break and a very nice ocean view. When we arrived we had an issue at reception but everything was fixed inmediately. The room we were was amazing, modern, very big and we had included in the room branded vodka, rum and other liquor (don't remember the name). Cleaning was very good.
I found some 'no major' issues, but they were a bit annoying:
1. Resort is pretty big (as usual in DR) and The Royal Suites are the last hotel inside this big resort, so not everything is close.
2. Service: This is my second time in DR (4th for my boyfriend) and we agree that the service was not good. We have decided this is because the people from DR is very relaxed anyway. i.e. Everyday I had Pancakes with condensed Milk on top and one of those they there was not, I asked "why?" And they said 'because we can not find the key where the milk is' / One day I asked to a waiter for a lighter and he says sorry I didn't bring mine and that was it, he never tried to get one for me or find a 'solution' / Concierges weren't there most of the time.
All in allI had a very pleasant holiday, a plus is the Vacation Club Palladium, they have a private beach for the members, you can get nicer rooms and have acces to different places. If you stay in Royal Suites you can go to the other Palladium Properties in the resort (if you stay in others you can not go to the Royal suites) and enjoy all the amenities. The 'no major' issues were not too much and I would definitely comeback! Their beach is amazing!More
Resort Just Average with a few exceptions
This was an all inclusive resort with beautifully maintained grounds! We stayed at the adults only Turquesa area which we found to be a good choice for peace and quiet. Our upgraded room was large and very clean. The resort appears to be a little older with construction everywhere. The rooms do need updating as there are not enough outlets for electronics and they are only 110v. Some of our other family members stayed in other parts of the resort with their kids and complained about poor A/C in their rooms, we were quite comfortable. The resort itself is huge, but our status in the Royal Suites Turquesa allowed us quick shuttle service around the resort without waiting for more than a few minutes. Our biggest disappointment was the food. The Japanese hibachi restaurant was fabulous, but we ate in several of the specialty restaurants and found them disappointing. The buffets were simply OK as we have been to other all inclusive resorts where the food including the buffets was very good. A few of our family members fell ill and we suspect it may have been the water which is not potable. It could have also been due to excessive partying as well!!
Now for the exceptional! Our butler Milky was fabulous! She made sure we were happy and was always helping us to restock our rooms or providing restaurant reservations of information! She made our stay special!!
I don't think we will be back here, the price was good, but we have higher expectations and are willing to pay for it!!
Friendly staff and great pools and bars
Our room was okay. A few things weren't working and broken when we got here. The maintenance man was quick to respond and tried to fix things as best he could. However, our jacuzzi didn't work, some things on the shower were broken and we didn't get our complimentary liquor until the third day here.
However, when you find a good staff member, like King Kong (yes, that's his nickname) they will go completely out of their way to help you. You just have to find them.
Pools were beautiful and the bars were spectacular. Definitely a party environment without 20 year olds if that's wha you're looking for. Restaurants weren't great but you can't have everything.More
We loved staying at this Resort.
The two exclusive restaurants for the Royal Suites attendants are much much better than the other ones. Dont even bother going to the other ones!
There should be a beach bar at the exclusive Royal Suites beach. The pool bar is very fair.
Everything was perfect! It is much better staying in Royal Suites than the other resort hotels! It is really worth the difference!
Book a swim up room or you will regret not to! You will have a much better experience in a swim up room!More
The hotel was very good. The People are friendly. Very good location near the beach. The all in service is very good. The theme restaurant like mexican we didn't like. The staff from the lobby bar are very friendly.
