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.
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 ideal place to sit back, relax and let the world go by.
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.

My wife and I have experienced more than a dozen Caribbean islands over the years and we just returned from our third trip to Punta Cana.
This experience at The Royal Suites Turquesa "adults only" where we opted for a deluxe Junior suite was by far our most enjoyable in the Dominican.
What makes our travel experiences great is by immersing ourselves into the culture of the island, the people and all they have to offer. You will not find more loving and compassionate people than Dominicans if you just let go of how you think things should be. It's not going to be like home, it's going to taste/look different, islander are not our slaves and for sure things may not work BUT if your approach expressing your concern to the right person is done with kindness and respect, I'll bet your problem will be resolved in a reasonable fashion. I say this from personal experience, we too had a few minor issues in our room but by staying calm and respectful, they were resolved within 30 minutes.
There are an abundant of options of where/what to eat on site, we found the food to be very good, something for everyone but remember, your not in Italy, your not in Paris, your guests on an island of amazing people - embrace where you are.
We had the pleasure of connecting with and meeting GM, Antonio Gonzalez and not because of any problems. We met Antonio because we wanted him to know just how great his staff are and the effort they put out. Most importantly, to thank him and his staff for their hospitality.
So go, relax, have fun, turn off your devices, see the island, embrace and be kind to Dominican's - That's where true Holiday joy lives !More

This was a beautiful resort. It was an all inclusive resort and the staff was very helpful. The butler was amazing and catered to all our needs. The grounds were kept immaculately.
A wonderful vacation for me and my spouse.More

Fantastic 4 to 4.5 Star Resort for Honeymoon
Reviewed by young professional Canadian couple on their honeymoon. Late 20's and early 30's. Nov 25th, 2015.
Weather was great. Sunny everyday for 7 days. No rain except maybe for 5-10 minutes or at night only. Highs of +30 Degrees Celsius with a Low of +25 Degrees Celsius.
This is really a 4 to 4.5 star adult only hotel with some 5 star elements. TripAdvisor does not let you give a 4.5 so I had to give it a 4 out of 5. Do NOT lot that deter you from staying here.
Rooms are beautiful, clean and spacious. Everything worked as it should. Highly recommend the swim up pool (or upgrading to it once you arrive if you can). Both the room we stayed in 5506 and the room we upgraded from 5212 did not have dresser drawers so we had to make due with hangers. Not too big a deal really unless your'e one of those people who packs 8 suitcases of clothing for some odd reason.
The maids do a great job cleaning the rooms during the day and they also refresh them in the evening.
Room service is very prompt. The late night menu is snacks with a very solid breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Room service food quality and selections is probably a 4 out of 5.
If you stay in building 55, you will have the privilege of meeting Abel who is the building attendant or butler. Him and his off shift counter parts go above and beyond when it comes to doing there best to accommodate your every need.
Food, restaurants and buffets are great as long as you are not some Yelp food snob critic. Tons of selection. Restaurants are all top notch. Buffets are very good. For the buffets, please remember they are cooking food for the masses so it is not gourmet but still good food.
The grounds and lobbies are absolutely beautiful.
Getting a shuttle from the Royal Suites is very easy and allows you to get around much easier. If you stay at the Royal Suites you are VIP and get access to your own specific hotel shuttles which means the other 3 lower end hotels cannot board them or hitch a ride which is nice. At night, after some theatre shows though you can wait 15-20 minutes for a shuttle back to Royal Suites.
The staff are all very polite. We especially enjoyed Felix who is one of the bell boys and shuttle drivers. He is always smiling and puts you in a good mood.
Staying at the Royal Suites allows access to 3 additional lower end hotels and all their amenities. While you are at Royal suites the services is TOP NOTCH, 5 star all the way. As you go to the other 3 lower end hotels the service drops quite a bit which isn't too big a deal since your really staying at the Royal Suites and not the other hotels. I mention this because sometimes you may want to venture off and try the other hotels buffets or amenities.
Royal Suites tailors somewhat to an older more mature crowd so the environment or mood is relaxed and peaceful. If you want peace and serenity then this is the hotel for you. It is not party city which is a good thing. They do have a Casino and Disco at the lower end hotels which we frequented. It is nice that they put the loud noisy disco and casino away from the Royal Suites.
Pools are great. There are 3 main pools at the Royal Suites. All well kept with good waitering service and great cocktails. Once again the mood and environment is peaceful and relaxed. Since you are VIP here you can visit the other hotels pools. The other hotels are family friendly hotels so kids will be at the pool. If you are looking for a younger crowd, check out one of the pools at the palace. Little bit more lively and fun since it is a younger crowd if that's your thing.
Ocean and beach are beautiful. There is a little seaweed on the sand but nothing major. They do clean it up most mornings. Ocean waves and water are great to go in and not choppy at all. The water is clean and is not full of seaweed so it is easy to spend all day there which we did multiple times. The bad thing is you have to get up pretty early (say 7:30-8:00AM) if you want to reserve a cabana or recliner seats. If not you will end up at the beach having to lie on the sand instead which isn't a big deal really if you like the sand or plan on spending most of the day in the water.
Do all your souvenir and cigar shopping on the beach. Right hand side of the beach when facing the ocean at Royal Suites. Lots of selections and lots of great deals and haggling to be done. Be forewarned, the locals put a lot of pressure to come into there store. You just have to be firm and direct (but do not be rude) with them and they will leave you alone.
We went shopping directly in town with the locals. Not the shopping your tour operator will send you to. Lots of deals to be had. Lots of haggling. Little bit of pressure as mentioned above. The locals are very good with tourist and my wife and I never once felt unsafe. Dominicans are some of the nicest people I have ever met.
When you come to Royal Suites, they will try to get you to join a Travel Club. Do not waste your time. 1-2 Hour presentation. No point. They will try and entice you by giving you a free gift.
Your tour operator will offer up excursions as is customary. We did the off-road adventure with buggies and side by sides. Very fun and highly recommended. We also did the ocean spa excursion. Awesome, awesome.
Overall my experience was very positive and I would come to Royal Suites again. I 100% would come back to Dominican Republic in a heart beat. Beautiful country with beautiful people.More
