When we first booked the Royalton, is was about #50, and were a little worried. But, when it moved up to #6, we were sure we booked the right place. And right we were! We stayed here for 6 days and will not forget it! When you pull up, you are greeted with a spectacular porte cochere, friendly bellhops, and a friendly lady who helps bring you to the front desk. The front desk is in a large lobby with a great view of the resort, and the ocean peeking in the background. We were even brought a drink when we were checking in! Now that is classy. Check in was easy, the lady was friendly and talked about all the restaurants, the resort, and things to do. The rooms are located in separate 6 buildings, but everything in the resort is very close to each other, so there aren't really any long walks. The room was beautiful! Comfy beds, flat screen tv, a balcony, and a FREE mini-fridge that's refilled everyday! Room service is also served 24 hours a day. The bathroom has a great rain shower, and cool sink. Tip: People say not to drink the tap water, and brush your teeth with water bottles, which we did. Next, the restaurants. We ate in every one, and each were very good. The buffet has great selections for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The steak house was also very good, and our waiter was very friendly. The food was amazing! Zen, the Japanese place where they cook at your table, was spectacular. Our waiter and cook were both very friendly and engaged everyone while he cooked the meal. The Italian place (Grazie) was actually a buffet, which didn't really have a lot of Italian selections, was still delicious. Cava was a Tapas restaurant. Never been to a Tapas place, and decided to try it, and loved it. First, you select what "small plates" you want for appetizers, and then the paella you want for your main entree. Opa was also very good, the lamb is recommended. I enjoyed the coffee shop, Beans Cafe, very much. It's a nice place to have some pastries, little sandwiches, and drinks. The staff was always friendly. I must note that I really enjoyed the music they played at the resort. The beach was awesome, and it wasn't very crowded, which made it even better. The pools were warm, and one even had a swim-up bar. In the afternoon, they have a burger stand where you can get a great burger. The bar in the lobby was a nice place to enjoy the Dominican breeze and relax. I was really amazed by an experience I had with the room service. I got a caesar salad with chicken, but got it without chicken. I didn't really mind. About 10 minutes later, the waiter came back with a new salad with chicken and apologized, and I was so impressed that they did that! Turndown service also brings Bon Bons. The water park at Memories was very fun, and had some great water slides. There's also a good selection of shops on the bottom floor of the Royalton. The only real complaint I have is some of the staff isn't very good at English, but it's bearable. Also, I'd recommend to not go to the flea market next door to the resort. The shop keepers bombard you to come into their stores. In conclusion, thank you so much Royalton for an amazing vacation!!!
