I am so excited I'm about to burst so I can't contain it anymore...we finally broke down and booked a 7 night trip to RPDC for this August.
We were originally booking Secrets Silversands until the nightly room rates shot up there. We were nervous about their beach to begin with but were "ok" with it given the great rates. When we went to book the trip we noticed the trip went up by $300pp...not cool. So we looked around some and found the best rates we've ever seen for The Royal and booked instantly. We honeymooned there in 2008 so I know we'll have a great time. I was never this excited about SSS so I know we made the right decision.
If anyone that's been there lately has any tips, info, menus, etc. it would be greatly appreciated! I'm also trying to start a list of some off-the-menu drinks that are worth trying so feel free to make suggestions.Edited: 06 February 2013, 16:04
