Rates are all-inclusive
Some say rooms are tiny and outdated
Surrounded by swaying palm trees and sugary sands, the all-inclusive Royalton Punta Cana Resort & Casino in the Bávaro resort area of Punta Cana beckons to R&R-seekers. Guest rooms and suites feature rain showers, coffee makers, satellite TVs, stocked minibars and balconies or terraces. And according to previous guests, the accommodations are clean and comfortable (albeit small and dated), though many recommend splurging for a Diamond Club room or suite. Each comes with extras like butler service, a pillow menu and access to a lounge with daily breakfast and evening hors d'oeuvres. The property's six restaurants, which plate everything from Japanese teppanyaki-style dishes to Italian-inspired fare, are another hit among travelers. And with three pools (not including one for Diamond Club guests), a fitness center, a casino and a water park, there's plenty to satisfy all entertainment needs. Speaking of entertainment, younger guests can stay busy at the two kids and the teen clubs, which have pingpong tables and PlayStation games. The all-inclusive rates cover all activities and entertainment, plus meals and nonmotorized water sports equipment rentals.

The Royalton is a solid mid-range all-inclusive in Punta Cana. Rooms are modern and pleasant, if a bit cramped, and palms and thatched palapas provide shade on the hotel’s stretch of powdery yellow sands on Bávaro Beach.


This 485-room upscale all-inclusive resort serves as the newer, pricier sister to the Memories Splash next door. It is better suited to couples, with its on-site casino and adult-only options (a pool and dedicated room buildings), while the Memories Splash – which has easier access to the large water park, as well as some rooms with bunk beds – draws more families.
