Vacationed here for Christmas week 2010 and was very happy with our choice to stay at RST. The beach is second to none in the carribean, the pool is quiet and luxurious and the champagne flowed freely. The ONLY downside for us was the food.
This was our 4th trip to Punta Cana and it's the same story everytime, 1-2 days of the trip we are with stomach cramps/pains and using the restroom. We expected MUCH better food at the RST as per all of the reviews and it just didn't live up to expectations in that department. Don't get me wrong, the Royal Gourmet restaurant was a magnificent setting and the service was ideal but the food (although better than all previous all inclusives in the DR) just didn't make the grade.
If you are a foodie, I would not recommend the Dominican Republic at all. If you can sacrifice a little in this area, there is nowhere that comes close for the price. All in all, still had a 4 star trip even with the tummy aches.More
