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.

Read before you book...Here's The scoop on this resort...

This resort is really 4 resorts: Bavaro, Palace, Punta Cana & Royal Suites. It is a huge sprawling property that is fairly well-kept. There are trolleys & carts to shuttle guests around, which run pretty often & well - but, there is a lingering diesel smell along the walkways. You will need very comfortable walking shoes to get everywhere. The website does not do justice to the resort layout or amount of walking necessary to get anywhere. 2. Staff: Overall they are poorly trained in the restaurants and bars and provide abysmal customer service and attentiveness to guests, their requests and recognizing that we paid to be there and are on vacation. Management should be ashamed at the poor training, lack of consistency and quality of the staff overall. The very good ones are the exception & who were attentive and accommodating: Angel in the Italian restaurant; Jesus in Le Chanterelle; Kelvin at the Bavaro Lobby Bar and buffet; Israel at El Bahio; Luiz at the steakhouse. Oscar at the Royal Suites. Thanks to all of you! We requested room upgrades - and were willing to pay for them months in advance via email and were told that it would be fine. Upon arrival, we were told NO by Franklin and not given anything we requested. We swapped rooms with another couple in our group and the hotel could not grasp the concept of changing names on a hotel reservation - this haunted us the entire trip - from the spa to checkout. We asked every day for an upgrade - again we were willing to pay - halfway through our trip, Jose worked to get us into the Royal Suites. Although we appreciated his efforts, he promised us our own butler - we had a concierge for 2 buildings; he promised lobster at lunch and dinner - there was no lobster at lunch and the lobster at dinner was horrific - we took a picture and showed the manager - he took it and showed the chef - it was that bad. 3. Food & Beverage: Food is not good overall - from freshness to taste to cleanliness of buffets. Our group of 6 gave the Italian Restaurant a 1 out of 10; the Japanese restaurant a 5 out of 10; the steakhouse a 5 out of 10; The Royal Gourmet was the worst with a 0 for food and service - Lobster was terrible, sushi was warm, lamb was cold, sour cream was bad and mashed potatoes were disgusting. The best was Le Chanterelle 9.5 out of 10 - just don't order the Creme Brulee - they do not know how to make it.. The frozen drinks are never frozen & the bar staff at the Royal Suites pool was rude. 4. Beaches & Pools: The beaches near Punta Cana & Bavaro are nice. The beach at Royal Suites was not great - too crowded with chairs. Overall, there are far nicer beaches in the Caribbean (regardless of the seaweed issue). Pools - Royal Suites pool is lovely with cold tubs and built-in lounges in the pool. Other pools are loud & dirty - if there is a swim-up bar or loud and dirty and filled with kids. 5. Zentropia Spa: Very good spa, reasonable prices; rude front desk staff. Good massages; Very nice cold tubs, hot tubs, sauna, steam, etc. They push the spa on you all over the resort - too much. Overall - there are better beaches, pools, food and resorts in the Caribbean that actually train their personnel and offer guests a wonderful stay. Our advice: keep looking... Stayed July 2015More

I had an excellent time with my family on this vacation. The room was perfect and the staff was good. The food was good but I wish they served more authentic Dominican food. My favorite part was going to coco bongos I had a blast. The next best thing was the saona island tour on a boat and on a very nice beach. The boogie ride was good but I wish we spent more time on this beautiful beach we were taken to. The pools and the unlimited drinks were a very relaxing part of the trip. Over all I enjoyed myself very much.More

Anthony N,

Unfortunately Disappointing

We traded our Maui timeshare for the Royal Suites Turquesa. This means that you are staying at the "Travel Club" portion of the huge (too huge) Grand Palladium Resort. We arrived to check in at the Royal Suites but were rudely greeted when they learned we were there with our timeshare. We were told to check in at the convention center, which made no sense to us since we've never been there and had no idea what the "Travel Club" was. We were shuttled, greeted, checked in, etc. I told the Travel Club reception (Baptiste) of my gluten allergy and was given incorrect information on how to handle it. Our room was huge and beautiful! However, the pool was in disrepair (dirty and tile were falling off). The beach is very narrow, crowded and you are bombarded by local peddlers all day. The food in the restaurants was fair to poor. My allergy was not understood because of the misguided directions I was given. We moved to another hotel after 2 meals and me getting sick. We were told we would get a refund of the meal package for the week, which was $1600+ . We haven't received the refund, even after checking with them several times that week and being told it had processed. Overall, we are very disappointed. This is not a place I would recommend. And I'm still fighting for my refund.More

We visited here for our honeymoon. The location is beautiful and the buildings are very nice. Most of the staff is very friendly and helpful. They even helped us with our Spanish. The food and drinks are varied; sometimes, it is excellent, but sometimes it is so-so. The pools are clean and very beautiful. There are many options and three swim-up bars! Your trip can be whatever you make of it at royal suites turquesa by palladium. More

Food was DISGUSTING!

We went for our honeymoon. To begin with we did not get the suite that we reserved we did not get any of the honeymoon package that was promised the champagne and I'm fruit all the things the honeymoon package was supposed to entail that we paid extra for. It was supposed to be adults only at our resort that was not the case. Out of the four resort there were many different restaurants all of which you had to have a reservation to. We tried several days to make a reservation and the only one available was at 10 p.m. . All of the restaurants food except for the hibachi was completely disgusting, I am not even close to a picky eater but the hibachi was the only place that I actually can eat anything besides french fries and sadly even those were bad. We went to the steakhouse for the reservation they said was the only one available at 10 p.m., the place was completely empty salad bar was already broken down yet they told me that was the earliest I could come and when I get there they say they're closing so no salad bar. I tried to order a baked potato they said they ran out and serve me instant mashed potatoes instead, told us we couldn't have coffee because the coffee maker was broken told us that we could not have any of the countries rum drink because the bottle broke (there were 2 bars within walking distance). Even a cheeseburger I tried to get for lunch one day I had to spit the bite out it was disgusting positive it was not beef and I have no idea what was in it but again I am NOT a picky eater and I couldn't even swallow it. They ran out of towels daily before 12 o'clock the so-called drink service on the beach was non-existent. I am all around very very upset and disappointed it was not a cheap trip but in almost every way I ruined our honeymoon. The food is one of the main reasons we go to an all inclusive resort and so very very sad and upsetting that it was that disgusting all around. The beach was beautiful but unfortunately not enough to make up for what its sad and disappointing resort it was. I would not recommend this to anyone in fact I might implore you to go elsewhere.More
