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.

First time great, second time even better.
Forgive me, as I am writing this on my phone. We are just about to leave the Royal Suites for the second time. I really don't know why people complain about the service or quality of the food because this place is great. Just a note, if you treat servers like garbage, you shouldn't expect to get attentive or kind service. For those who think "well it's their job", while it is their job to serve, it is not their job to be treated badly and take it. It's all about mutual respect. There are, as in any place, a few bad apples, but the majority of the workers there genuinely want to do a good job and want you to love your trip. If you are friendly they will bend over backwards for you. It's not always about a tip. Ok. Off of my soap box and back to the review. The food selection has a huge variety so there is something for everyone's taste. I must make a comment about our butlers. We had Henry, Provedencia and Rosalia. They were all great. Provedencia set up our room for our anniversary. Such a sweet gesture. I must comment about Henry though. He went absolutely above and beyond to make our trip memorable. From sending a fruit basket to our room to surprising us with champagne and helping arrange excursions. He was the best. Overall this was a great experience and we hope to come back again. Of course there were a few small glitches (confusion on room service orders, maid forgetting to give towels- both situations were rectified with a quick chat with the butler) but hey. You are on holiday. Just go with the flow and enjoy your vacation. This is my first time writing a review but I felt that I should share my experience to help people make an informed decision before booking. Thanks for reading!More
Great time once again at the RST
We stayed at the RST (our 2nd home away from home) from April 25 to May 2, 2015. As loyal clients of the Palladium Hotel Complex in Punta Cana since 2000, we've now stayed at the RST the past 3 consecutive years. Once again we had a great time! The RST has gone through many renovations (since last year). The room we stayed in (5034) has a nice modern, comfortable feel (new beds, new furniture and decor). They've also added a new pool that is open till midnight (nice concept). Heartfelt thanks go out to all of the wonderful staff of the RST and Palladium Complex in Punta Cana. Thank you to Mr. Leandro Tajes and Mr. Octavio Subervi for ensuring that our stay was a memorable one once again. Thanks again to the following people who made our stay truly enjoyable. Reception (night shift): Jeronimo; Butlers for villa 50 : Carlos and Sandi; Chambermaid: Teresa; Bellboy: Jose Antonio Almonte; Spanish Restaurant: Miguel Cabrerra (our friend of almost 10 years); Italian Restaurant: Rafael, Leilis; Steakhouse: Sonia; Catedral Restaurant: Francia, Michele, Alberto, Francisco and Elsa. The RST is truly a beautiful and relaxing hotel and the staff are most welcoming. For these reasons alone, we would not hesitate recommending it to our friends and family members. My wife and I will be celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary next year and you can rest assured that we will be celebrating our anniversary at the RST!More

Do not go here, go somewhere else in the caribbean!
I will start with the few good things this hotel offered. Beach quality was excellent, nice sand water and views. Swimming pools were nice. Appearance of rooms were nice. The far greater poor things about this place were: Staff was unfriendly, didn't seem happy, spoke poor English, Slow and inattentive Food was very hard to come by if you wanted something decent. Reservations were a pain in the butt to get and sometimes you couldn't even get them, they were always full. Drinks were not very strong and you had to ask for the alcohol to be added sometimes, or they would just make them virgin. The room looks nice and pretty clean, but AC didn't work, fridge didn't work, hot tub didn't work, bed was not very comfortable, there were only a few English speaking channels on TV, there was nowhere to put your clothes, so we had to keep them in suitcase on floor, water and power shut off periodically, seemed like maids were always in your room at the worst time. Grounds were so vast it was impossible to find anything, and shuttle drivers didn't stop for you half the time, or didn't understand English to know where to take you. There was very little entertainment to be found, and no one leading you in the directions of doing fun activities. The Chairs were a pain in the butt to get, everyone would claim them at 7AM and leave their towels and stuff there all day, and not enough shade umbrellas. Water is a huge must, but they hardly give you any and getting it from the bars or somewhere was a pain in the butt and difficult. You had to stay at the resort or in a large group, because the people hound you for buying something, or hookers follow you around, its just dangerous. The spa was OK, but the staff don't speak any English and its very difficult to know where to go or what to do.More

Our trip was just what we needed! Very relaxing and romantic. We enjoyed the beauty & the stillness. The service is like no other, the staff is equally kind and attentive!!!! The place is luxurious and the beach was beautiful and clean!!More
Nice resort, not spectacular
This is a fine resort, I was just expecting more. We went for New Year's Eve. I would rate it 3.5 stars if I could because the hotel rooms are quite lovely. However, the rest of the hotel is where my rating goes down. When we checked in, we were told we could not make dinner reservations until the next morning. The next morning, options were slim. We could not get into the most recommended restaurant at all for any of the 5 nights we stayed. When we did show up for our dinners each night, the staff seemed surprised and not ready for our group, despite having reservations. We would wait an additional 15-20 minutes for them to get our table ready, even though the restaurants were nearly empty. This happened every night. The food overall was not good and buffets were below average. Food also seemed not readily available. If you got hungry at the beach or the pool, options were slim. You could go walk back to the buffet (leaving the beach or pool) get a slimy sandwich from a refrigerator, have a few items on a toothpick from the lobby, or go to a beach bbq 2 resorts away that seemed just dirty. I was expecting food available everywhere, or for food to be able to be delivered to your location, as they promote 24 hour room service. Also, our butler really did nothing for us. We asked one day for the special pillows, which he promised to deliver, but never did. The staff was very friendly, talkative, and smiled a lot, but did nothing special. You had to grab pool or beach chairs by 7 or 8 am or you were out of luck. The New Year's Eve celebration was basically nothing but giving guests some flair. Overall, we had a great time because we just wanted to sit on a beach, drink, and eat. But, I was less impressed than reviews had predicted.More
