Resort suggestions for our family?

Good day,

It's been a few years since we've been to Punta Cana and the resorts that I have been to are Natura Park (Love the beach and the fact there was a place to eat lunch) and Dreams Palm Beach. We are travelling with people that hasn't been to Punta Cana before and would like some suggestions. The ages of those travelling are 10 to 54.

We are looking for a small to mid size villa style resort with soft white sand, 24 hr snack bar and a nice pool.

We tend to stay at the beach from early morning until around 3 p.m. then head to the pool.

What resorts should we be checking out for our family?

We just booked the Royalton for our family - it will open Dec. 1 and will have a huge water park on-site.

We've also been to Dreams Palm Beach and liked it (especially for kids activities) - other family resorts that we've been to that we liked are the Iberostar Bavaro, Melia Caribe Tropical and the Grand Palladium - would recommend all of them - but sorry, don't recall if any of them have 24 hour snack bars.

Just as an FYI, the Royalton does not have the water park. It is Memories Splash that has it but the Royalton guests are allowed to use the park. Just saying.

Right. The Royalton is beach front and the Memories Splash is back a bit-- a 8-10 min. walk from the beach - they are both labeled now on google maps so you get a good idea of the layout of the two. I did get confirmation that Memories Splash guests can use the Royalton main pool and snack bar but not the restaurants. Royalton guests have access to everything at Memories Splash. Water park is shared between the two and sits behind the Royalton/in front of Memories Splash.

Thank you so much for your suggestions. I have passed them along to the family and now comes the fun part trying to decide which one. We have checked with our travel agent about prices for the end of February and I will be asking for more info once we have decided which resort we are travelling to.
