First of all - Don´t listen to the negative reviews.
This was my 11th time in Punta Cana and i have never had such a great time there.
Everything is perfect at NH Royal Beach.
FIRST of ALL : The best of the resort ist the staff. Absolutly. They were so warm and so friendly but they even know how to handle everything and most of them speak english very well. You really feel like home or even better. They have the happiness of the dominican people that got lost within the last 7-8 years since the big tourism came to punta cana. They treat everyone the same way, if you tip them or not.
Let´s get on with the rooms. They where plenty big, had a wonderful bathroom with 2 sinks, a big shower and a seperate toilet with bidet. The quality of the room was fantastic, you didn´ßt even hear anything of your neighbour. They had high quality windows, so if you close the window most of the noise stays outside. Housekeeping was perfect, the women came twice a day. Between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. to clean your room and between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. to bring you new towels and get your bed ready to just fall in and sleep. It was fantastic. We used the room service once and got our meal within 20 minutes. Fantastic !
The most important thing, of course. People who tell me the food was bad, what do you eat at home ? I think the food was excellent. It really was above average at NH Royal Beach. It was the same quality of food you get at 4 or 5 Star Hotels in Europe or the US. I cannot understand how people do not like the food.
The food was warm all the time, you have so many choices, you do not get everyday the same. I was there for 7 days and i never eat the same things, you always find something new.
In the morning you get 5 different kinds of eggs, smoked salmon, fresh juices, pancakes, french crepes and on and on and on... and the best, you really do get fresh orange juice served right at your table with a stunning view on the beautiful sea...
For lunch and diner you also have a good choice for many different meats and fish and of course all the sides like rice, french fries, patatoes in different ways, onion rings and on and one. But the best is the desert. Oh my good, it was haven. Their milkrice, i was in heaven ;)
Of course you get fresh fruits like melon, pineapple, orange, passion friut, also even kiwi and apples, bananas, sometimes coconut.... everything you want :)
The a la cartes where very good, the best one is the "pure" at the nh royal beach. Wonderfull, just go there and have a fantastic diner!
Now for the drinkers of you :) They have a choice, i never saw at an all inculsive resort in this price category.
You get :
Jim Beam, Johnny Walker, Black Label, Red Label, Chivas, Absolut Wodka, Smirnoff, Campari, Malibu, Averna, Bailey´s, Bacardi, Bacardi Gold, Bacardi Lemon, Gordons gin, Bombay Saphire Gin, Miller´s and Corona served in bottle´s...
You want anything else ? You get all your cocktails with premium alcohol!
So let´s get to the resort itself. It´s a smaler resort with only 373 rooms and suites , and it was really relaxing. No loud crowds or something like this, just relaxing. They have no disco so it´s not that party resort. The lazy river pool was amazing and the service at the pool bar was fantastic. They always have a smile and a fantastic fresh made cocktail for you. At the beach you find shadow under some palapas or palms.You get also served your cocktail directly at the beach.
The beach was fantastic the sea was not the best part of punta cana but it was good.
What else to say ? They really care about you and your wishes at nh royal beach, and they have an eye for the detail in everything.
Go there, it´s heaven!
