Royalton Punta Cana vs Memories?

After an exhaustive research we narrowed down a search for a family trip (2 adults and 3 children) next April to Punta Cana to either the Royalton, Dreams or Club Med. Our dates are fixed.

It seems all the hotels are fully booked on our dates for rooms accepting 3 children, but will take bookings for families with 2 children. We cannot change our dates.

I can't get through to the Royalton directly which is being refurbished. Some travel agents tell me that it's adults only and direct me to the Memories section (which does have availability) and others say the Royalton does accept families. Anyone know for sure?

Either way, am put off booking the Memories since that there are a) no photos of the hotel and it seems that it's a long way from beach and 3) again seemingly you can't use all the Royalton facilities but the Royalton can use the Memories splash pool.... For £4-5K I'd want equal access!

Does anyone have experience with this? Any other recommendations for a good hotel with small children? Anyone seen the Memories place and can speak about it practically? vs the Royalton? Appreciate all and any advice.

Ok I know all resorts have opening problems Been there seen that.It really takes 6 months to a year to get a resort to something close to what you've seen on the computer generated pictures.

For those that are going or those that are there post some pictures of the dinner menus and shots of the bars that are open. What types of liquor they are offering.. also anyone staying in the diamond club or adults only sections. What types of premium liquor do they have there. The plus side the resort is on a nice section of the beach
