Had a nice new yrs getaway. The staff is what makes this a nice resort. Lines are kind of long and the buffet doesn't have much organization as one would think but overall had a nice time. The buffet needs to add spoons to their napkins so we are not looking for someone to assists every time we want soup or ice cream. Alexis at the lobby bar was so nice even made up his own shot for us to take. The lady at the arcade I forgot her name but her picture is attached was so sweet and you could tell she loved her job and talking to people and making their stay even better.

The resort and grounds are beautiful. They appear to have under gone renovations within the last two years. The staff, for the most part, are trying to please the guests, even though English skills are pretty low here. However, the management is non existent or incompetent. It started with the check in, which kept us in line for over 2 hours before we got our room. It is an extremely inefficient and disorganized system. I don't know why it takes so long for large groups to check in when our family of four signed papers, got our wrist bands, and was told our room #. We were never given a map or instructions about eating, or anything! If you think I just got a bad day, I saw the same lines on other days and our check out took almost as long. The a la cart (specialty restaurants) is another mess, at other resorts where I stayed a week they let you book 3 specialty restaurants such as Japanese, Italian, Mexican per week. Here you have to line up at 6:30 am in the morning everyday and wait for the booth to open at 7:00 am to book your reservation, they give you no reservation paper slip or receipt so if they lose your reservation its your word against theirs. Guess what? They lost mine after having waited in line for 40 minutes and carefully repeating which restaurant and time I was booking with the clerk. I know that this happened to other guests too, as I discussed it with another guest on the flight home. Only one of our two wake up calls ever came through to us. Not a single clock in the entire resort. No alarm clocks either. As for sleeping.... really hard to do. We were on the first floor and the hallway is nothing but an echo chamber with no noise insulation between the halls and the bedrooms. Doors slam shut to rooms, people call down the halls... REALLY noisy. Finally, we stayed there from Dec 27 to Jan 3, 2020 they book most of the rooms with local people and as such the hotel was at near capacity as was the dining area, no adherence was given to the 50 % COVID rule, tables were pushed together to accommodate groups of 16 people and the line up for food was cheek to jowl with people who had no respect for the 6 foot/ 2 meter physical distance rule. It happened because there was no one enforcing the rule of 50% occupancy in the dining hall. We felt sorry for the staff who always had masks on (even outside) and many of whom seemed uncomfortable with guests not wearing masks or social distancing. I suspect that management figured they could make a quick buck filling up the place with locals as the tourist are not coming down to the resorts. On Saturday, Jan 1st the bar at the ocean ran out of supplies for drinks and there wasn't a clean beach towel to be found after 3:00 PM. The locals left all of their dirty towels, food trays and drink glasses on the beach in the sand. The poor staff was there well after dark trying to collect it all. This was not the norm prior to the locals swarming the resort. On my walk on the beach NONE of the other hotels had the same over capacity issue that our hotel encountered. Indeed, we spoke to one Quebecer two resorts down who has been to Punta Cana many times and said she paid $1800/person last minute for her resort and booked it last minute when she read from other travellers that their capacities were around 25%. From what we saw of their section of beach, she seemed correct. I was shocked our resort would do this during a pandemic. I would not stay at this hotel again!

My family and I travel to the carribean every year since 2007, mostly to Cuba. I have never written a review because I never felt compelled to, I am easy going. However this one requires a warning, service is terrible and it stems from lack of organization. The bad: Check in took almost three hours! Everything you want to do requires waiting longer than expected, buffet always has a wait to get a table, and then inside you have to wait to get anything. The buffet staff are doing their best and covid doesn't help, I'll give em that. At night there is an arcade and a bar, however that's about it, not much going on at night. There doesn't seem to be any animation team and there's definitely no kids club at the moment. If you are hungry at night you need to go to the other resort, Royalton Punta Cana (the Splash is actually "Memories") the service there is also very bad. People crowd around the bar and bud in all the time. Spanish speakers seem to be served faster than English speakers. It took me an hour to get chicken fingers and fries which was very frustrating as those that ordered after me received their food half an hour before I did. There is no beach volleyball at the Royalton! How can you be a resort in the Carribean without beach volleyball? If you want to play you better sneak into Occental or the Riu. When I checked into my family suite there was only pop in the fridge. No beer/alcohol I can understand since its a family suite but no water either... you have to call front desk to ask for this... Swim up bar is overcrowded and people just hover around. I stayed at Riu last year and the resort has tables in the water so that people take their drinks with them whereas here people feel compelled to stick around, making it hard for anyone else to get anything. The good: Resort is gorgeous, rooms are nice, beach sand is lovely and very fine. Food is fine, the wings and fries are good, cant complain. Towels are plentiful and you are not responsible for your towel like other hotels, this is a great feature and other hotels should implement this. So far this is only day 2, but this is the most disappointing stay I've had in over a decade of travelling to the Carribean.

The idea was simple: a weekend getaway with our daughter and her BFF to enjoy the beach and waterpark. We've been to both Memories Splash and Royalton beforehand. The Royalton reality was different: 1. Check-in at the front desk we were directed to was backed up from the front desk to the parking lot (see pics). Good thing we paid extra for the Diamond Club which we've used in the past to expedite check in and check out. First Point: No social Distancing! 2. Diamond Club was locked closed....Hmmmm....Second Point: No Diamond Club at the Splash property even if you pay for it! 3. Well, I had booked a Presidential Suite at the Royalton Splash, so there must be a front desk at the Royalton (these are two sister properties linked by the water park). So we drove over to the Royalton and went to the Diamond Club. The attendant clarified we needed to go back to the initial front desk as our room was not at the Royalton, but at The Royalton Splash. And this is bow we learned that Memories Splash changed its name to Royalton Splash. Third Point: Double check the names of the Royalton properties when you reserve (I actually had to change my initial reservation and still got it wrong). 4. We drove back to the Splash check in. The line was still long and had not moved, and a bellhop confirmed there was no Diamond Club attendant. At this point I was about to leave and go elsewhere (I should have). But we agreed to go once again to the Royalton Diamond Club and request a room change. Fourth Point: No Diamond service at the Royalton Splash. 5. The attendant at the Royalton Punta Cana Resort said there were no Presidential Suites available, but they could accomodate us for a $40 per night charge for switching (on a $1080 reservation!). After we questioned this, she offered to check us into our original Presidential Suite, and provide us with bracelets to access the Royalton PC restaurants, provided we sign a waiver indicating that by accepting this accommodation we would not make any claims against the property for our obvious inconveniences. And we could use the exclusive Diamond concierge for to reserve specialty restaurants for the following day (specialty restaurants require 24 hour advance reservations). We signed up, parked our car and lugged our baggage to our Suite. 6. After settling into our room, we naively called to reserve a restaurant for the next day. No answer. Eventually an attendant indicated we should call the following day as of 8am. I indicated we were informed of the 24 hour advance reservation. He provided two other numbers to call. No answer at either number. Fifth and Sixth Points: Diamond Club service is a myth. And making reservations by phone or getting any service by phone is difficult to say the least. 7. Stay tuned for the rest of this review...

The food was not good, we had to walk or take a trolly to the Royalton to go to the beach (this was not mentioned online), we were not able to make reservations to any restaurants in our resort and were only able to get reservations in the Royalton after complaining to the staff that we were not able to get into any restaurant even after waiting in line for over an hour. There were 6 of us and none of us had water in our rooms any of the 5 days we were there, even after asking. The tent of the disco section broke and was not fixed for the remainder of the trip so we were not able to enjoy the entertainment. I asked for a receipt of our room charges at check out (which also took over an hour and required us to complain to a staff member to be able to leave) and we still have not received the receipt, even after calling 3 times and emailing.

Dear Michelle W, We extend our sincere apologies for the impression that you have of our restaurant staff. We continuously train our staff, and we have already shared your review with our managers. They will implement necessary improvements to continue giving the best possible service to our guests. It is also worth mentioning that our Executive Chef works hard to make an extensive and varied menu of luxury dishes, and he usually accomplishes this goal for all our guests. However, we understand that individual tastes are not common and that not everyone enjoys the same kind of food. We apologize for any inconvenience you may have had during your stay at the hotel. We have taken all your comments and have sent them to the general department for a solution as soon as possible. Whilst an apology will not change the outcome of your experience it is our sincerest hope that you will grant us the opportunity of serving you to an experience which will surpass your last.
