The Art of Smart Timing
Memories Splash Punta Cana experiences year-round temperatures ranging from 82 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit, with a year-round water temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit. However, high humidity can make it feel warmer than the actual air temperature. Therefore, the property's high season runs from December through April when humidity is low. The low season runs from June through November, when families will find the best room rates.
Memories Splash Punta Cana is approximately a 30-minute drive from Punta Cana International Airport. A one-way taxi ride from the airport to the property is approximately $30. The hotel does not provide shuttle service. To book an airport transfer, speak to the hotel directly prior to arrival. You can wait until you arrive at the airport to arrange a transfer, but it's best if you book it before arrival.
Memories Splash Punta Cana does not offer any complimentary shuttle service in Punta Cana; however, if you plan to take an offsite excursion, round-trip transportation usually is included in the price of the excursion. If you want to explore the local area, plan to pay out-of-pocket for taxi service.
