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.
Private section of beach
A chance to unwind on your own private beach, away from the hustle and bustle and crowds. Enjoy the sun, a long drink, or take a dip in the warm waters of the Caribbean sea.
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.

Entire Group Had The Flu!!!
Myself, as well as the rest of my group, came to Grand Palladium and were pleasantly surprised by how much better the Royal Suites guests were treated in comparison to regular guests around the Grand Palladiums. We had private butler service, as well as private transportation to anywhere around the resorts. Our rooms were quite lovely, however a couple of friends ended up with dingier rooms than some (due to damage and overall cleanliness). I travelled with a group of 6 people and we all were having an amazing time until about the third day into our vacation.... Due to the fact that the food in every single buffet (and some of the a la carte restaurants) was lukewarm at most, every single one of us came down with a horrible flu. FOOD THAT IS MEANT TO BE WARM SHOULD NOT EVER BE ALLOWED TO GET COLD. Once cooked food turns cold, bacteria grows all over the place, and this resort was notorious for cold food. We even asked some of the waiters for our food to be warmed up and when our plates were handed back, the food had not changed in temperature at all. Grand Palladium recycled food and drinks. I witnessed this horrific event several times. I watched as unfinished drinks or unwanted drinks were just dumped back into the drink dispensers, as well as food. No wonder my entire group was sick....would not recommend this resort ever again unless the entire Grand Palladium chain decides to abide by health and safety regulations....not to mention the plane ride home consisted of everyone running to the bathroom or lining up due to illnesses from this resort.More

great relaxing vacation
Everyone, from Leidy at reception to the grounds men, was really friendly and helpful. Shout out to butlers Angel, Providencia and Gaudy. Room was cleaned twice a day. Refrigerator stocked daily with exactly what you wanted. Drinks and servers everywhere Pool towels and attendants available all day. Beach beautiful, clean, plenty of lounges and shade. ( unfortunately seaweed season but not a big deal) Too many restaurants to visit in 7 days. Food good. French restaurant the best. Room service breakfast really good especially fresh fruit which was everywhere. Buffet restaurant on the beach has great atmosphere pannini and pasta made fresh. Spa spectacular. Spent a whole day there after great massage Entertainment every night Michael Jackson tribute was excellent Nice piano bar named Hemmingway's. We asked for a song, the pianist listened to it on his cell and played it. Rides to everywhere. Only negative was hard sell at Travel Club. Liz meets you and is really nice. She was the reason that we went to appointment. Karina takes you to see new suites and she is great, funny and fun. When you get into the sales room everything changes. Pressure, rudeness, over talking pushy salespeople. We already own and told them politely up front but wow, really bad. A saleswomen from Miami (don't remember her name, don't want to) and a really rude guy named George. They were obviously pissed off that we didn't buy. We actually laughed about it and have a funny story to tell. Also received $200 gift at spa (we had to ask) so ... no worries. Go to Palladium Turquesa it is great!More
I stayed at the Royal suites and 7had an excellent vacation. The staff was very friendly from the house keepers to the front concierge ( melky ). She took care of our every need in a timely fashion. She also made sure we took advantage of that was included. The hotel was very clean and the pools were excellent. Also would recommend the variety of restaurants and food options.More

Royal Suites Turquesa was great resort. Its location is 25 mins from the airport and very close to other outdoor adventures. My wife and I were on the third floor with great views. Personally, I think it was better not to be in the swim up because other guest are in the pools all day as well. The building's butler Tony helped us with dinner reservations and other plans and was always attentive. Although the resort is all inclusive, I suggest that you make dinner reservations for your entire stay on the first day. All of the bars (my wife and I personally preferred the Grand Palace lobby/bar) have extremely attentive waitresses/bartenders especially Mabel,Crystal, and Lilliam. Special thanks to Mabel for indulging me as I spoke broken spanish with her. In the rooms free alcohol is provided, but we found it hard to even make a dent in it with all the alcohol from bars and beaches. As for beaches the Royal Suites beach is great. It's exclusive to only guest of the Royal Suites, which means its not crowded at all. In fact, most of the day you will only a few people even remotely near you. Also the Royal Suites beach has drink service, which spending the entire day at the beach a joy. The water is a beautiful blue with great temperatures. Overall, you will love this resort, and you will definitely get your money's worth.More

Not 5 star
The suite was nice and we really appreciated the swimup room, really used it more than I thought. The reason for my poor rating is due to poor quality of food, drinks, and service. The frozen drinks were cold at most. Left one of the exclusive restaurants without eating due to the bad taste. We enjoyed the tepanyaki the best. We did have a couple of great meals, the Chateaubriand for 2 at the french restaurant and the steak at the steakhouse. Staff rarely went out of their way to help. As an example, I had read here from several reviewers that they had Baileys as one of their bottles in the room, I was told I could only have rum, vodka, whiskey, and gin...all good but I would have liked a liquor. Room service slow and awful food. THe buffets had very similar food from day to day. I wanted plantain and it is only available one day of the week. The waitress at the steakhouse did ask the chef and came back with a plate full of sweet fried plantains, one of the few times a worker showed any interest. If this were a 2 or 3 star resort I would had given it a higher rating, but they claim to be better, so I expected better and was not delivered.More
