We usually stay at Paradisus or Iberostar resorts in Punta Cana but wanted to try something new. I selected Royal Turquesa based on the reviews I had read on here as we wanted to explore other resorts. Check in was fine. No welcome drink though. Went to get this myself at the bar. We stayed at the new section of resort away from the pool beach. First night we woke up to booming music of a disco located off grounds across the street. Needless to say we were moved to a swim up suite second night away from the road. I really enjoyed this suite and highly recommend a swim up suite for couples who would like to stay close to their rooms and relax quietly together. The suites were really nice and well set up. The beds are hard though and I found it hard to get a good nights rest. Grounds are beautiful and well groomed. Service was spotty. I went to get my own drinks all of the time and even went to the bar to get mini pizzas. We ate at the Royal Gourmet and the Japanese restaurant. We found the service at the Royal Gourmet very good but food seriously lacked flavour for my tastes.
We booked massages at the spa. Honestly I found the spa to be less then adequate then the other resorts I have been too in the public areas. It just looked dirty and unappealing to me. After being at Iberostar Grand or any of the Iberostars and Paradisus we have been spoiled. We decided to move to another resort for the remaining days of our trip but that does not mean we wont venture to other resorts hopefully again.
