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.

Girls Trip 2017
We took a girls trip in Sept 2017 and had a great time. The Rooms: There were 10 of us with 5 rooms in villa 57, this villa does seem older and there were things that we saw on the website that were not put in these rooms like the updated showers and more than one bed (only a king bed, so we had to share beds). The Jacuzzi tub was nice and ours worked great, however one of our friends didn't. The way our rooms were stocked was also different, some had the 4 bottles of liquor, some did not. Some had fully stocked fridge some did not. But one call to room service and it was all good. The Food: We went to a few A la carte restaurants and enjoyed them, the french and the steak house were our favorites. We were bummed about the japanese restaurant being closed and we were hit with Hurricane Maria so the restaurants were shut down. Honestly I was impressed that shortly after the hurricane they had the buffets open and had a nice meal. We heard complaining about eating buffets and all I could think of was be great full a hurricane just came though and we have a meal. The restaurant we all decided we could do without was the mexican, I was the only one that had a good meal there and people ate off of mine. Staff: I honestly have to say that this group pf people were the best, I have been to many all inclusive resorts and this group had it together. We had a group of 10 women, they watched out for us, helped us whenever we needed anything. Every staff member we talked to smiled or nodded at us when we walked by and whenever any of our group was not together they all noticed and would ask where that person was, they had different nicknames for some of us(usually based on appearance or personality) and would use those when asking where they went. We celebrated a birthday while we were there and the Smile group put on a huge party for her with coconut drinks, balloons, dancing. After the party our jack of all trades King Kong put on his own show with thriller and many other songs, each with a different dance routine. Pretty much everyone by the pool enjoyed the show, there were of course a few people who did not but they were mean to us before that. Mami Boy(I'm not sure that's how you spell it) and Sammy Sosa Jr. You two are GREAT, you provided lots of entertainment and dancing and always seemed to be right there when we wanted to ask a bunch of questions. I really enjoyed having real conversations and getting to know your area and cultures more. BEST PART: We loved the foam party in the pool, at first when we got to the pool we saw a bunch of little kids and were worried, The kids quickly went away when the foam started filling up the pool like crazy. I expected the foam party to only last a few minutes but it kept on going and going, the DJ was beautiful and did a great job keeping it all going. All of the dancers were fun to watch and looked like they were having a good time. WORST PART: Hurricane Maria.. It wasn't your fault I know but it was the worst part, We did feel like there was not much information given to us about what to do. We are a group of ladies who talk to everyone and some guests said they got a slip under their door about moving buildings, and other people we met told us about the bagged lunch and that they found out on the facebook page. One couple we talked to didn't get a bagged lunch because they didn't know anything about it. King Kong did great and checked in on us at night and in the morning to make sure that we were ok. We had to extend our vacation 3 more days because we were unable to fly home the resort made it very easy to extend our days. We would like to thank you for keeping us safe and trying to keep calm a bunch of ladies worried about seeing their families.More
Can't quite give a positive review...
Second visit to RST, loved it last year despite some concerns (interactions with the front desk staff, charges for services not provided, mediocre food, and slow service). Went back this year, and we were pleased with some improvements, but overall have a slightly negative review to offer. First, the positives: the location and grounds remain impeccable. Even with Hurricane Irma wandering by just to the north on night one, the minimal damage was cleaned up immediately and all facilities were re-opened quickly. The beach and the pools (adults-only side) are world-class. We were pleasantly surprised to find service had gotten a bit better; slightly faster and definitely more friendly than last year. The food quality, while still being about "Denny's"-level, was a bit better than last year. We tried a few new a la cartes and really enjoyed Tapeo and Rodrizio! The Italian was a bit better than last year, Bamboo was mediocre, and the Royal Gourmet was good, if a bit hit and miss. It seemed like the lobby bar was providing way more themed drink/snack nights, and those were all delightful and delicious. The hotel was well-prepared for the hurricane (I'm sure they've done this before) and disruptions to our stay were kept to a minimum. (Side note: our initial Butler, Eurys, was out-of-this-world good, fun to talk to and really on the ball with anything we needed. We really missed him after we changed rooms (see below).) OK, now for the bad things. The hotel was fairly empty due to Irma (especially on the Adults-only side). Upon arrival (the day before the storm) we were given a third-story room far from the beach, due to concerns about flooding. Fair enough...we appreciated the safe quarters, but we were also reassured that once the storm had passed, we would be able to change to a room closer to the beach and the pools. When the day to change rooms arrived, we asked to switch to a different Royal Junior Suite Deluxe, the class of room we had paid for. Since the resort was nearly empty due to the storm, we expected this not to be a problem. Instead, we were informed that it would be an additional $80 ($10/day) charge for us to switch to the EXACT SAME CLASS OF ROOM. What. The. Heck? We protested and involved our travel agent, all to no avail. We ended up paying it because we wanted the location, but it really set both of us off. We'll be disputing that charge. The rest of the vacation was good, until it was time to check out. We were running a bit late for our airport transfer (we were told it would arrive at noon, and got a call at 11:15 am telling us we needed to be in the lobby immediately or we would be left behind). Fortunately, we were almost done packing and got down there quickly enough. And then upon checkout I'm told that I owe $34 for a single phone call (!!!!) made from my room. A phone call I did not make! I had my cell with me and had coverage in the DR...so why would I make a call with their phone, and why would it cost $34?? Welp, ended up paying that too, as we needed to get going to the airport. It reminded me of last year, when we were accused upon checkout of having taken a $70 bottle of champagne...a bottle that was never supplied to our room in the first place! This hotel is very good at leaving you with a completely poor taste in your mouth on your way out the door. Based upon these two experiences, we are swearing off this location and the chain in general...too frustrating to end a great vacation seething with anger over unfounded charges on the way out.More
The room was very nice when we arrived. And they cleaned it when we needed and gave us extra towels if we needed it. We got everything we needed delivered including cerveza . The bar service was great. Always got our drinks filled into our own personal cups. There was plenty of food choices available from the restaurants/buffets. And during the hurricane we had carry out boxes we could put food into. The animation crew was amazing. Sammy Sosa Jr and Mami Boy They were very personable! There couldn't have been a better group of people to entertain us. They were so friendly!!! King Kong was our butler. He always made sure we had everything we needed, from toilet paper to beer. And during the hurricane he checked up on us making sure we were ok. He made sure we had reservations for the best restaurant and made sure we knew when places were open. He even danced for me for my birthday party. He was absolutely hands down the best. He couldn't have catered to our group of 10 any better.More
My new husband and I went to the Royal Suites in the July of 2017. We wanted an adults only all-inclusve resort where we could enjoy each others company and relax... and be a little bit spoiled. This resort met all of those! I have traveled since I was a little girl with my family all over the Caribbean mainly by cruise ship. We chose Punta Cana for our honeymoon because it was so reasonably priced and we were able to get that "spoiling" we wanted! My husband, on the other hand, has never left our home state, so this was a new experience for him! We are already booking our next trip to Punta Cana for next summer with friends. On to the review, as I have noticed others' reviews have helped in this booking: Resort/grounds: I was immediately overwhelmed by the enormity of the resort. I knew we were able to "stay at one, play at four" of the other Palladium Resorts, however I did not realize they would all be connected. We arrived from the airport, and it took about five minutes(maybe a little less) to get to our lobby at the royal suites as we had to drive past/through the other three resorts located on the property. Overall, it was nice to have the option of going to the other restaurants and buffets, but I wasn't a fan of having to wait to get a golf cart ride over to the other side, so we walked quite a bit. Room: Our room was amazing! We had a junior deluxe suite with a jacuzzi in the room. Everything was great! However, the tv was tiny, but we didn't turn to that often. the butler service was great, and they were very helpful. we stayed in building 54 (I think room 5413) and our butlers were great. We had one young man who always had a smile on our face and was just all around pleasant to be around! Food: The food was WONDERFUL at the Royal Gourmet, which is where we enjoyed most of our breakfast and dinner. Because the Royal Suites is one of four, the buffets tended to be packed and filled with children. I am a first grade teacher, and I am all about kids every day. However, I was under the impression we would be traveling to an adults only, and the Royal Suites is, but the other resorts are not. So if you want lunch and you're in your swimsuit, visit the grill located at the main Royal Suites pool with swim up bar, or order room service. It was hard to get anything too wonderful at the buffet because, one it was a typical buffet, and two the crowds flocked there. The a la carte restaurants were always booked up a few days in advance and we didn't realize that so we couldn't make reservations before we left and the wait was quite long. So we went to the Royal Gourmet most of the time and had AMAZING Filet Mignon. Drinks: The drinks never disappointed us! We had amazing frozen tropical drinks ( Pina Colada Especial and the Miami Vice were our go-to... YUM!). They kept our fridge stocked with their beer "Presidente" which my husband loved and even trued to find back at home with no luck. So he's excited to be going back for that! Activities: I was disappointed that there wasn't a master schedule of the events going on throughout the four resorts. We found ourselves walking around and stumbling on live music at night. They did have a mini golf course, that could have been kept up better, but we had fun playing even when it decided to downpour on us! Spa/Spa Pool: Being a Royal Suites guest, we got the opportunity to visit the Zentropia hydrotherapy pool. This was amazing! It was relaxing a quiet. We enjoyed the pool a few times while we were there! We got a couple's massage 80 minutes for $160 for the both of us! Pools/Beach: The pools and swim-up bars were great! The service at the swim-up bar was a little slow and I had to brush up on my high school spanish to ask for the bathrooms! The beach was compact and they had a separate area for the Royal Suites guest-which was nice. However the little cabana and umbrella areas were a little too close together, so we stayed at the pool which was perfect for us! Overall, we really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Suites of Turquesa. It was a little too big for me, like i said my husband loved the options we had. I would recommend TRS Turquesa.More
Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium
Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. We were booked into a Deluxe Junior Suite with Whirlpool Bath and Balcony. 2nd September 2017 to 16th September 2017. Room 2656. This holiday was advertised as 5 star and was anything but! ~ 3rd September - Spoke to a member of staff to ask if there was a supermarket on site where we could buy some milk, He advised us that there was not but took a note of our room number and assured us that he would personally take care of this and would make sure that some milk was delivered to our room. We checked out on 16th September still waiting for the milk to arrive. ~ 7th September - Called the Butler service at 2pm to ask if the mini bar was being filled up and was advised it would be done immediately. Went to see the Concierge in the building opposite at 4pm to ask if the mini bar was being filled up and was advised by the Concierge that he would deal with this immediately. Went to reception at 7pm to ask if the mini bar was being filled up! ~ 8th September - Spoke to the holiday Rep. regarding the mini bar on 7th. She explained things were not up to speed due to Hurricane Irma which we totally understood but she was appalled that the staff had not been truthful. She was also surprised that we had not been introduced to our Butler and said she would make sure this happened. We checked out on 16th still not having been introduced to our Butler! Walked around the whole complex where staff could be seen in all areas clearing the leaves etc. that had blown down during the hurricane. All areas that is apart from The Royal Suites where this was not cleared for 2-3 days! ~ 9th September - Went to see the holiday Rep. at 11:20 as we wanted to book some excursions. There was no Rep. in attendance and we then lost all faith in her so we booked with Blue Travel who were located in the hotel. The mini bar had been filled up but the spirits had not. Called the Butler service, eventually someone answered and the spirits were replaced. On the hotels website, this is advertised as 4 litres of spirits per week. We were supplied with 75cl bottles. ~ 11th September - 10:30pm Power cut. No emergency lighting!! Everywhere was pitch black and we had to find our way back to our room by the light on a mobile phone, no emergency lighting on the stairs or the hallway!! ~ 14th September - Ordered some sandwiches from Room Service. Called Room Service to take them away as the bread was mouldy!! Chocolate in the fridge was also unappetising! ~ 16th September - Bus back to airport was to pick us up at 12 Noon. Called reception at 11:15 to request a Bellboy and was advised one would be sent straight away. Had to rush to reception to book out at 11:45 as no Bellboy had been sent and no one was answering the phone. All of the above, along with: The "All Inclusive" not including wine in the room or the A La Carte restaurants (although strangely it was included in the buffet restaurant?) The food in the A La Carte restaurants being inferior to the food in the buffets The leaking air conditioning The badly repaired left hand sink The leaking right hand sink The constant badgering from Palladium representatives to joint their Travel Club. We paid in the region of £4000 for this holiday and we were looking forward to two weeks where we would be staying in a deluxe room, with our own butler service and where we would be looked after and enjoy a little bit of luxury. Instead of this, we were in an inferior room, with a butler service that barely existed, staff who would tell you what they thought you wanted to hear rather than the truth, inedible food and generally being treated as second class guests!More
