We stayed at The Royal Suites Turquesa by Palladium May 12 - 19th and had a wonderful time! It was our first visit to Punta Cana and booked though Apple and AAA. The reviews are right on for this resort. I don't normally write reviews, but this was exceptional. The staff was fantastic and very friendly! Thomas was always available to take us accross the resort and very helpful! David, our Butler, was very attentive to our needs and made us feel at home in our new surroundings. Theodore, Delores and Denny were very nice at the bar and got us whatever we needed. Morguson with the caffee de leche was there every morning to be sure the coffee didn't go empty and made sure our needs were met at the buffet. The Grand Buffet was a great breakfast for us and Bohio became a favorite for lunch with the patio overlooking the beach. We enjoyed the Steak House, Hibachi, and the French Restaurant. The service at this resort is a perfect compliment to the beauty of the resort.
We stayed in the newer area, building 53. If we were to go back we have decided we would ask for a swim-up or a honeymoon suite up front. We enjoyed the activity of the resort area closer to the beach with the swim-up bar. But if you are looking for quiet the back section is a great choice.
Be sure to take or buy bug spray, I did have quite a few sand flee bites. We bought our tourist card online so that saved us buying at the airport in Punta Cana. And note if you have a connection in the US after customs, you will go though TSA again, so anything over 3 oz will have to go in checked baggage. Even if it is purchased in the duty free stores in Punta Cana.
Would recommend this resort - especially for the staff that makes you feel very special the moment you say hello until you wave goodbye:-) Hope you enjoy your trip and this review helps with your decision!
