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.

Main outdoor pool
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 idea place to sit back, relax and let the world go by.

If you enjoy good food, don't go...Not a 5 star hotel
We were at the Royal Suites for a week in August and we had a swim up room. I'll be concise: - The beach: wonderful! You can take a long walk. It's really beautiful and relaxingâ¦ however, to get there you must make a tour around the remodeling of a huge part of the Royal Suites (the front pool and buildings). The remodeling can be noisy. - The room: was very nice, big, clean and it was wonderful to be able to walk right out to the pool. Toiletries were ok, but you wonât want to bring them back with you. The bed was not very comfortable, I would say a little too hard ( and I like hard beds) . - Transportation: since the hotel is big they have golf carts to take you around. Be patient... you can spend from 0 to 10 min waiting for it to arrive. Youâll get there earlier if you walk. - Service: this is a âtipping world"... people are nice, but have a "Caribbean pace". In general, I would say the service is average. - Restaurants: the Gourmet and the French, which are exclusively for Royal Suitesâ guests were ok, but definitely not worth repeating. In fact, the lobster at the Gourmet and the onion soup at the French were the worst Iâve ever had, not to mention the un-ironed and burst seams of the tablecloths. The teppanyaki and Brazilian restaurants were just ok. But the Italian is the worst Italian Iâve ever been to: instead of getting 4 raviolis, I got 3 and a piece of chicken covered with the sauce â¦and nobody there has ever tried a real carpaccio, because the one they had was covered in vinegar. We had a good time, but the hotel is not a 5-star. I won't go back.More

Royal Suites An Adult Hotel
I loved the fact that the Royal Suites was an 18+ section of this resort. Kids are great, but I prefer not listening to them scream and pitch tantrums while I'm on vacation. Butler service was a nice touch, as was the little "vault" where your room service was brought to you- that was pretty neat! Food was good when I went but the a la cartes were so-so. I loved the spa area and we made a point of heading there once a day. The lobby for this section was a nice place to relax and have a drink at the end of the day.More
I fell in love with the Royal Suites!
Not only were the rooms magnificient but the vibe was amazing! I had an amazing time on a one week vacation with my best friends in Punta Cana especially thanks to Leandro. Not only was our room amazing but the staff was incredible. Never have I been to somewhere so spectacular & I travel a lot...We will definitely be back soon!..Pools are wonderful and clean, as well as the rooms. The beds were so comfortable and big! The restaurants on premises were delicious..all different varities as well from Japanese food to a steak house...just incredible...Can't wait to be back! All ready planning my next trip there!More

We are in love with The Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium in Punta Cana
We love this place so much that this was our 2nd visit in two years and we plan on returning in 2015. Both of our visits were with family and friends and we have recommended the hotel to other friends and family. The resort is gorgeous with beautiful pools and lush landscaping and extremely well maintained. The staff really sparkle here. They are the gems that complete the resort. They go over and above to be kind and helpful. We had a Cabana Suite with a walk out to a pool dedicated to our cluster of rooms. The food is delicious, and of course the drinks are plentiful. The Royal Suites guests have access to all areas of the Grand Palladium resort but the 2 restaurants in the royal suites are so great that there is no need to venture out. No reservations are needed and the food is terrific. For a fun evening try the Japanese Restaurant - the showmanship and the food are awesome. As noted in the info booklet they give you, men need long pants for dinner at all restaurants throughout the resort. Overall, the royal suites is a wonderful place where you can do as much or as little as you like. Both my husband and I love the spa and the services offered, you can even enjoy a massage on the beach and prices are competitive. Just remember to set your expectations realistically. They speak Spanish there but they try very hard to understand you and will do everything to make you happy and will use English whenever possible. They will even help you to learn a few simple phrases in Spanish to help you communicate throughout your stay. They will give you an information booklet when you arrive. Most of the information you need is there - if not, just ask. In the Royal Suites, you can get almost everything you want. It is a huge resort so be patient for things like room service or special maintenance or getting a car in other areas of the resort. Plan for it so you're not frustrated. For example, have a drink in a lobby or go to the piano bar or sports bar while you wait for a car after a show when everyone wants a car at the same time.....Relax and enjoy your vacation on Dominican time:) Room Tip: The swim up suites are worth it!!More
