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.

Royal Suites Turquesa bu Palladium, Punta Cana

Worst resort I've ever stayed at!!!!! I was dirty, garbage everywhere, pools were dirty bottles and empty cans in the pools. I moved rooms 3 times cause every time there was something different wrong from infestation of ants then they came in and sprayed a full can of insecticide and expected us to sleep in the room duh!!!! the bathtub was cracked, water leaking from the ceiling. I will never recommend this resort to anyone nor will I stay there again!!! and it's a 5 star I don't think so.More

Another Vacation to Paradise

Another Vacation in Paradise was completed yesterday November 16. I woke up this morning to snow falling what a difference to the weather I have enjoyed for the past ten days (November 2014) at the Royal Suites Turquesa, Grand Palladium Bavaro Beach Punta Cana. It was warm high 27 plus Celsius most days along with sun. The rain predicted just did not arrive to spoil our time on the beach. My husband and I have been to this resort numerous times and we still return. Why? The answer is easy. The staff are friendly and treat you as a member of their family. This time we travelled with our daughter and Son-in-law. Since they had stayed closed to the beach on their honeymoon last September, they wanted to be in a similar location this year. We had rooms in the newly renovated building 50. The rooms have been updated with new toilets, shower stalls and sink vanities. The colour scheme is more modern. Soft grey and charcoal accented with plum and green, very cooling and relaxing colours. The mattress was new as well with a duvet which was really comfortable when sleeping under the air conditioning. There was also lots of accent pillows for watch tv or reading in bed following a day at the beach under the beautiful Carribbean sun. We often ate at the Royal Gourmet Restaurant and the La Chantrelle Restaurant. Both of these restaurants are reserved for only Royal Suites guests. Dining here is a bit more formal also no children to distract the conversation. The food is very good. I highly recommend the Eggs Benedict for breakfast along with a Minosa. Unfortunately, that was not on today’s menu here back at home. One can dine at the Royal Gourmet also for lunch. Yes it does mean leaving the beach but the food is worth it. One day I had lamb chops and they were very good. We discovered the rum and raisin ice cream for dessert from the Caro de Postre. We ordered it more than once. Kerlan, one of the wait staff gave us excellent service. Over at the La Chantrelle restaurant, I think the maître de must know our order off by heart. We started the meal with cheese fondue made with Manchego and Camenbert cheeses, then Chateau Briand for two. This is very tender beef brought flaming on a stone to the table. The meat melts in your mouth. The finish for this meal is Crepe Suzette which is made at the table and served flaming. Great for eating and for taking pictures. For a different evening dining adventure, we booked one of the A La cart restaurants. TAPEO is an authentic tapas restaurant. Biki helped us with ordering the hot items and gave us very good service. One has many different flavours to taste here and since they are small you can really get a variety of flavours. Watermelon soup, beet soup, bite size quiche and breads with different meats and cheeses are just a few of the ones we tried. The Royal lobby bar is an excellent place to start the day or finish it. Gabina keeps everything running smoothly and makes very good pina coladas or mud slides along with great coffees. In the evening Michelina takes over and efficiently runs the Royal lobby bar. She will gladly make what you want so when I asked for Irish Coffee but to skip the Irish whiskey and use Rum cream instead, she does it. We still are pondering what to call this specialty coffee drink, may be Coffee Royale would be oappropriate. The highlight of this resort is the beach. I walked my chosen section of it every morning, about 2 kilometers then went for a swim in the warm ocean. Then I spent the rest of the time reading my books or talking to new friends. I do generally stay in the shade and there are lots of huts here for that purpose. We had a wonderful relaxing holiday with our daughter and her husband and would recommend anyone to visit this resort.More

Loved this place. Would go back in a hearbeat!!

I just returned home a couple days ago from my trip to the Dominican Republic. We stayed in the adult only section at the Royal Suites Turquesa. They have been doing lots of renovations but they are now done. All the pools are open and the grounds are immaculate! The first day we were there we were a little bit lost. That is a really big place with lots and lots to do. We must have walked ten miles that day! But then we realized that you can ask your butler or anyone at a front desk to call you a buggy. (Golf cart that holds 6 or 12 people) They will take you wherever you want to go on the property at any hour of the day. Be nice and tip them and they will gladly be there when you call. Speaking of butlers, each building has a butler on the premises from 7am to 11pm. Ours was named Providencia. She was AWESOME!! If she didn't know the answer to a question we had, she would get right on it and find the answer for us. She was great in helping us to set up reservations for dinner every night. There was even on day where she took us to where the gentlemen were cutting down coconuts and he showed us how they cut them and he let us taste the coconut water. That was a nice experience. Providencia help to make our stay extra special and if there was ever anything we needed, she was very attentive and saw that it was taken care of immediately. I am blessed to say I came home now having a new friend. The food was really good. There are several different kinds of restaurants. Make sure you make a reservation so that you are guaranteed a meal at the restaurant you want to be at. Our favorite was the Mexican restaurant. They had the absolute best lobster we have ever eaten. It costs $35 extra dollars for everyone else in the complex but if you are wearing the gold band you get from staying in the adult section, it is free! It was so good, we went back a second time before we came home. The Japanese restaurant was also really good. Our cook was awesome and very friendly. The food was prepared right in front of us. The Bohemian Restaurant was also top notch. We ate at the Steak house our last night. Steak was wonderful. The restaurants that you don't need reservations for are okay but generic. The food is so so. Make sure you make reservations with your butler. We made reservations our first night for the entire week. And save the ticket your butler gives you and take it with you as proof of your reservation. The grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed just walking through the complex. Our first night after dinner, we decided to go and walk on the beach. Don't do that. After dark there, it is pitch black. Stay away from the beach after dark to be on the safe side. The Spa was one of my favorite places. One of the best massages I have ever had!! I don't think most people realize but if you are wearing the gold bracelet, you can use the majority of the spa for free. The sauna, the jacuzzis, the pool, an assortment of showers, and a contrast pool are all there for you to use at no cost. Take advantage of that. It was a nice relaxing place to be and we only saw maybe 3 other people there while we were there. Take lots of one dollar bills. A couple of dollars as a tip goes a long way. Everyone there is very friendly and eager to help you but it is nice for them to be appreciated. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the WiFi worked down there. Now, you have to log back in everyday, but it never had glitches. Room service was a little slow but the food was pretty good. Loved the private room service doors in each room. It is a cabinet they can put the food in from the outside and it opens into your closet where the fridge is. A red light comes on when the food is there. That was way cool. Don't shop at the beach front stores. They are very and I mean very overpriced. The locals who run them are very pushy and can be quite rude. You can find nice things in the resort shops if you need things to take home. The locals who run the beachfront shops aren't allowed on the hotel property. They will stand literally 2 feet behind the security guard at the beach and the second you cross that property line, they are on you badgering you to come in their stores. Just don't go there. Make sure and book you excursions through the hotel so that you aren't overcharged. There will be people trying to sell you trips on the beach. Don't buy from them. Stay safe with those in the hotel. We booked a 4 hour excursion through Stingray Bay Caribbean Festival. It was $104 per person. We got to swim with stingrays, swim with sharks, and go snorkeling. On the boat ride home there were dancers who performed on the boat.It was a very nice day. No need to take beach towels as there are towel huts all over the property. Save the space in your luggage for other things. Take at least 2 bathing suits so you will always have a dry one. Learn Spanish. If it's just the basics. Your butler knows English as does the front desk. But no one else speaks English. Take a spanish dictionary with you. Make sure and request one of the swim up rooms. They are well worth the extra money. I was worried about everyone being right at your room but they are private. If you want right on the beach or very close to it, make sure and request one of the buildings in the 50s. 52 and 54 were the best. All in all, this was a wonderful trip. Weather was perfect, people were friendly, and I would definitely go back. I am so impressed with Palladium Resorts that I am already looking at booking at one of their hotels for my trip next year. :)More
