Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium  

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.

May 2014 good time

This is the 3rd time to this hotel and the first time to the royal suites, we had a swim up suites which we really enjoyed. Room: big, clean well stocked with drink every day and great bed art, LCD TV with CD player. I found the bed a bit hard and had to double up a blanket to sleep on, my wife found the bed OK. Having the pool outside was great when we went back to the room after lunch to relax. Out and about: gardens very well tendered and the management should be very proud of their gardeners. We had no problems getting around either by walking , train or golf cart. The beach is long with lovely white cool sand, the sea is a bit rough and there are ropes out to make sure swimmers don't go out to far. Restaurants: we have done them all many times over, this time we did not do the Brazilian we found this in the past not to be one we enjoyed (to much meat), steak house great, Italian found the service very bad on the night we were in so did not visit again, the rest of the al a carte restaurants were good but again one night service would be good and the next time not good, its hard to define why but I do believe a lack of senior managers going around at night may be the cause (I did not see any), we even found in the royal restaurants service hit and miss sometimes sat for 20 minutes and no one came to take our drink orders little thing like this not a holiday spoiler but annoying. Spa: used it twice and enjoyed the massages, also nice and quite round the pool. It did seem that if you spoke Spanish the staff were more attentive, being English and lazy about learning another language I should get my finger out and learn. Overall we had a great time and would go back again.More

Amazing week at the Royal Suites

The property: First, you have to keep in mind that you are in a developing nation with limited resources. That being said, this place was amazing. We had zero complaints. It is one resort on the Palladium resorts complex, and shares resources with the other Palladium properties – to us, it was all available, all the pools, restaurants, bars, etc. The adults-only aspect of the Royal Suites set it apart from the others. It was quiet and clean, and there were restaurants that were reserved for Royal Suites customers only. The only spa on the Palladium property is located in the Royal Suites part, and is reserved for adults only. It was a quick drive from the airport, once we found our driver and the van. The room: We had a large swim-up room with a whirlpool tub. The bed was less than comfortable, but naps by the pool made up for it. There is a cool room service “hatch” where they can deliver things to your room (24-hour room service, complimentary) without having to knock on the door. The fridge was stocked with beer, water, and soda. There were full bottles of alcohol in the room, as well as a wine fridge. The wine in the room was the only thing we could find that wasn’t included in the price. Housekeeping was friendly and came by several times a day to refresh the bed, etc. Other stuff and tips: The spa was amazing. We did a couples’ package with sugar scrub, chocolate wrap, facial, massage, and private hot tub bath. We were there for about 2 ½ hours, and it was $250 all together. Bring lots of swim wear – things took a long time to dry, and we were in and out of the water all day. Other than swimwear and coverups, you don’t need much of anything. Men must have a pair of long pants to eat at the nicer restaurants. The room had shampoo, conditioner, body wash, lotion, soap, shower cap, bathrobes, and hair dryer. Don’t be surprised to see lots of topless sunbathing and swimming. We brought large insulated cups to get drinks at the bar – harder to spill, stays cold, and lasts longer. Don't get sucked by the tourism people at the airport trying to sell you day trips, just walk past them or tell them you already have your time planned.More

Beautiful place to stay!!

We are presently on our final two days here of a wonderful fortnight´s holiday. Before we came away we read a report from someone on their honeymoon who literally tore the place apart, well either he went to another hotel on another planet or he´s just a professional moaner. The moment we arrived we were upgraded to a lower ground floor "swim up" suite with views of the beautiful gardens which are typical of the whole complex. We were shown to our room by a personal butler Tony, who to be truthful does change faces day to day, and were told that we could call on him most hours of the day for anything we need. When we entered our room we were pleasantly surprised to find a free safe, a massive four poster bed, a fully stocked fridge with American style beer and Coca Cola and peanuts and cheese biscuits which is replenished daily, four bottles of branded spirits which can be consumed once. You also had four bottles of wine which can also be consumed but have to be paid for. What more could you want? Outside there are many pools that can be used by all and even the loss of the main pool which is under construction is no real problem. The beach is fantastic with hundreds of free beds and a gorgeous sea to swim in safely. The locals pass by frequently offering everything from para-sailing, snorkeling, hair braiding or fishing etc. The choice of restaurants is fantastic with Mexican, Italian, Japanese, Brazilian, French, the Steakhouse or eat A La Carte in the buffet restaurants. The food is exceptional and we can recommend all of them. And you don´t need to walk anywhere within the hotels complex, you can either request a buggy and driver, or wait for the "train" to come round and simply hop on. Try the Theatre for entertainment, the Animation team put a massive amount of work into giving a great show _ not like at other places we´ve visited. If you like expensive shopping then go to the Palma Real or the San Juan shopping trips which are free trips from the hotel lobbies, or go on the Santa Domingo shopping trip and buy from the locals but beware_ you only get just over an hour to shop after the sight seeing tour. We´ve been to the Caribbean before but I can say, hand on heart, the Dominican people are among the friendliest people we´ve ever met. Negatives? Yes, if you want to be picky. Some of the rooms, our included, were in need of some TLC like re-tiling in the pool and new handles on some of the drawers wouldn´t go amiss, but hey, they don´t make or break a good holiday do they? Overall, we loved every minute and wouldn´t hesitate to come back again.More

This is a 3.5 Star hotel by U.S. standards and that's being nice

I upgraded my room to the romance suite via If that was the romance suite then I wondered what the Junior deluxe suite looked like. It was a standard bait and switch. The rooms were filled with mold, outdated, and very poorly kept. The bed was hard. You have a wet feeling all throughout. The food was awful at every restaurant except the Japanese restaurant. Be sure to bring your own seasoning salt and pepper. The buffets had flies all through it. You'd be lucky to not have a fly hovering around your plate. Nobody speaks English. The language barrier made the trip awful as you could never receive appropriate assistance without that being wrong. The drinks were watered down at best. If you were lucky enough to get the drink you asked for, it would water down by the time you went to sit down. All drinks were bottom shelf, with some sort of syrup to top it off. We will never go back there and it was our anniversary. More like a Anniversary Disaster.More
