Memories splash

Hi guys just booked 14 nights at the memories splash at the end of September , this will be our first trip to the dom rep, we chose this resort because of more facilities for children.

A few questions

1. Is there much outside of the resort

2. I hear that the resort is a little distance from the beach is that a problem???

3 What are the bars/restaurants like???

4. Hurricane season should we be expecting more rain than usual??

Many thanks guys

HI Shionhughes - The resort is behind (is the sister resort) to Royalton Punta Cana. Most people have said its about a 5-10 min. walk to the beach but they have transportation trams running frequently that you can take if you don't want to walk. The bars and restaurants have gotten good reviews so far - especially the "Under the Sea" restaurant . I don't think there is a lot of activities within walking distance of Memories -- you could walk to the north and check out the Hard Rock casino (I believe Casino is free if you enter through the front of the resort). To the south is lots of beach walking - check out hotels.

BigJim had some great advice to another poster who was asking about activities and is staying at Majestic which is right next door to Memories....here is what he said about taking a taxi down to El Cortecito..

Plenty of things to do "off" resort from walking around the El Cortecito area with shops, local bars, resturants, 4 tourist clubs, some resturants/bars on the beach that turn more into a bar at night, many different plaza and beach markets for shopping, theres the Palma Real Mall as well, etc

Here's a map below of things in the Cortecito area... Your resort is not listed on this map as it's higher up North... But to give you an idea from Majestic by taxi to where it says Steve's Bar on the map is a short 12ish minute drive.

Safe to go off resort and no more dangerous then in your hometown. Follow the standard safety precautions and you will be fine... No flashy jewelry no flashing big stacks of cash.

Really it all depends on what you want to do.

For excursions there is some great ones from culture trips to fishing and everything in between.. Below link lists a hundred things you can do with reviews and pictures.
