well, first never under estimate the dominican sun and always wear sunscreen and never drink the tap water...ha ha that aside if you are thinking of coming here you are in for a treat. there are two resorts each are next to each other we are writing mostly about The N.H Royal Beach which is an 18 and older adult side. here we had a blast a never ending adventure a totally relaxing place. if you are deciding to come here you must check out the wait staff like...Luis the bartender ussally towards the poolside bar and the beachside bar hut, he is very funny and friendly also erick and antonio who are like the guest relations or personal butlers and very nice. if this is your first time then here is some extra needed advice...from about 10am to 5pm if you are on the beach people will constantly ask you to visit their shop and all their last names seem to be cheepy...ha ha. also our plan pays for evrything you should try to bring money for the other extra things like the marina parks and 4 wheeling riding which are not included and if that is not what you like to do then just think about this, the average monthly income is around 160.00 us dollars so although tipping is not asked for even 1 dollar us is a great blessing to these hard working people. so enjoy your trip.

Location of the hotel was key, only a short approx 30 min from the airport. Our room was great, no problems, decor really cute. def get the 2nd floor or higher so you feel more private in your balcony WITH jacuzzi :) We stayed here for 5 days/6nights did not get bored. The beach is paradise, we even got hooked up with one of those cabanas with our own private butler for the day....with free massages (which 2 of my friends ended up booking a massage later in our stay) Lots to drink, the lobby bar (Odalis is the man) had the best selection of top shelf alcohol. DO NOT TAKE SHOTS OF MAMAJUANA! The 4 of us split a shot and i passed out on the lounge chair until 10pm that evening (and thats only b/c they woke me up) Food was delicious, I never got sick at all, but my gf's did; however they did all come with preexisting stomach issues. I enjoyed lunch & dinner, we only made it to breakfast the last day and it was sooo worth it if you are a breakfast person. We checked in on a busy day, so we only got to eat at 3 of the restaurants that you book in adavnce. Problems were our key card to get into the room kept on inactivating which was such a pain in the butt to walk back & forth to the lobby and also the a/c was "broken" for 2 nights when were at the restaurants so we sweated our balls off while eating. not so comfortable. The employees were so sweet and always willing to help. Darling at the front desk is wonderful but Alejandro was our favorite. When my friend broke my camera he took it off the resort to fix it (tho it was beyond repair), he always went out of his way to make our vacation more memorable with little perks and extras, helped me learn mas espanol, & kept us safe when partying off the resort.

We visited this hotel for a week from July 16th through July 23rd and had a great time. The hotel is very clean, the staff is extremely friendly and the service was fantastic. A special shout out goes to Erick, the concierge, who was especially attentive and made sure that every detail was perfect for us during our stay. Luis at the swim up bar was excellent as well as Felix in the buffet who served coffee to my husband and son-in-law every morning at 6:30. We also especially appreciated the service of Hansel and Abraham of the wait staff. The service of all the staff, especially those noted was exceptional. I thought the selection of food was fine, not five star but certainly there was plenty of choices available for even fussy eaters. We especially enjoyed the breakfast omelettes and selection of fresh fruit at every meal at the buffet.
Watch out for the tile surfaces which become very slick when wet. Also, watch out for the top steps in the pool; we observed at least 7 or 8 people who took a tumble going into the pool. No one was hurt but it can be embarrassing.
All in all, it was a fantastic week and without hesitation, I would recommend this hotel to everyone, especially because of the wonderful staff. My husband and I are considering a return trip for a long weekend next year.

Beautiful Beaches, Service was impeccable, Spacious Rooms. They had bowling, pool, night clubs, paintball, casino, water sports, golf, volleyball, swim up bar, lazy river/pool, a vegas style show every night, gym, spa (massage on the beach), different lessons by the pool like fruit carving, or painting. 4 different restaurants, 24 hour room service, Royal Buffet by the beach. Food was delicious. Drinks at the bar were strong and yummy. Worth the money you pay if you get all inclusive. Very friendly and professional staff. So much more. Check out there website it has it all. Amazing Honeymoon.

NH Royal Beach has great , personal service. All of the people who served us were very gracious, polite and accomodating. Our room was cleaned several times a day and all of our requests were met quickly and in a very friendly manner. We especially enjoyed Luis and Margarita, our bar tender and server at the pool. They were smiling, dancing and gave the resort a personal touch! Our server at the buffet, Francis, eagerly greeted us at meals and saw to our every need while dining.
We enjoyed sea kayaking and 4 different restaurants at the resort. Our favorite restaurant was the Italian restaurant at NH Real Area, because of the quiet, private atmosphere.
The lazy river pool as crystal clear each day! There was always an umbrella to sit under and a warm breeze to keep us cool even with the hot temperatures.
There was plenty of food to choose from and all of the people in the restaurants were very nice. Our only disappointment was in that they overcooked the lobster on two different occassions and it was inedible.
On the day of our departure, they called our room to see if our bags were ready and we were picked up, along with our luggage, in a cart, and transported to the main desk for departure to the airport.
Come prepared to relax and be pampered.

I just returned from a week long trip to the NH Royal Beach. We were originally going back to the sister hotel the Real Arena but upon arrival we switched to the Royal to join our friends who were staying there. It was the best decision we made, although the other hotel was great; we felt right at home from the moment we moved. The attention, care and friendliness of the staff made us feel very welcome. We quickly made friends with the staff and it's hard not to since they go out of their way to serve and help you. The food was great especially at the buffet where the selection of food was outstanding. We thank Adriano, the cook for this and his kindness. The waiters Zamora, Juan, Francis, Esmerejildo etc. all of them catered all your needs and if there was something you wanted and they didn't have it you can be sure they would find it for the next visit. At the beach bar Dewaris, Deivi, Manuel, Luis, Mari, Margarita and especially Yolenni who worked the beach walking in the heat and heavy rain up and down catering to all your drinks without forgetting anything and always being super friendly. These guys and girls always had a smile on their faces and no matter how rude some tourists were (and and I saw some pretty nasty ones) they always responded kindly and with a smile. Boy do I miss them!!! I can't forget the entertainment, those guys were under the supervision of Isaaia who also taugh yoga and dance classes on the beach. The shows were exciting and fun, and the dancers (Lainy I hope to see you soon) were excellent. You must take into account that these young ladies and men work all day on the beach and all over the pool to get you involved in activities such as arts and crafts and dancing and then at night (don't know when they have time to practice) they put a heck of a good show. I only have a suggestion, not a complaint. There is no direct access to the beach, you had to walk around the pool which although BEAUTIFUL due to the huts being so close to the edge you had to walk careful so you would not slip and fall in pool. My suggestion is for them to make a path from where the buffet restaurant beggins to the beach as direct access, there is plenty of room for that and whoever wants can walk by the pool or go straight to the beach. All in all we had a wonderful experience, can't say enough about it and can't wait to go back next week. I wish we were still there :)
