Opened in January, 2018, the Royalton Bavaro Resort & Spa offers a luxurious all-inclusive experience in Punta Cana. Families will truly find something for all ages and interests in their group, including the Clubhouse Kids’ Club and Seaside Summer Camp for young children, the Hangout Teens Club and FlowRider surf simulator for tweens and teens, and a casino and spa for parents and grandparents. Other family activities include pools, a lazy river, mini-golf, cooking classes and organized games. Oh, and did we mention this resort is located on Bavaro Beach?! Water sports rentals are available, too!
Accommodations feature Royalton Resorts’ signature DreamBeds, stocked mini-bars, balconies or terraces, and free Wi-Fi. We especially love the Luxury Family Suites for five guests! The largest room option, the Diamond Club Chairman’s Four-Bedroom Suite, can sleep up to 17 guests.
The resort offers eight restaurants, as well as 24-hour room service.

Had a great time with my family. We arrived late in the evening to the resort. A golf cart drove us and our bags to the diamond club where we checked in. We were then escorted to our absolutely stunning rooms. One of the butlers showed us how to order room service off the TV because we were so hungry. He told us our butler Max will be there in the morning to meet us. We ordered some room service and went to bed. We woke up to great weather and a great view. Our son enjoyed a morning swim in our awesome swim up room which we loved. It was great. Room was spacious and clean. They have sensors in the ceiling which controlled the lights and air conditioning which is neat but not when you were sleeping. I guess our family doesn’t move much when we sleep because fan kept shutting off due to inactivity in the room. It took a couple days to get this feature disabled but our butler Max didn’t let it go until it was fixed. Max was so great. He made all our reservations and came to see us every day just to make sure everything was alright. He was even able to get us a late check out when I was told we couldn’t. My son just adored him and so did we. His Customer service was outstanding.
Food at the resort was great! Buffet and restaurants were great. Something for everyone really even my picky 6 year old. Loved that they did a buffer breakfast for diamond club at Oceanside. Was great that we didn’t have to waste time walking all the way to the front. Diamond club is located closer to beach. Private pool was nice. Used diamond club and lazy river the most. Beach was clean and water was warm and wavy which we loved.
Stores are over priced and the people in them are very rude. They made me purchase a plate because my son accidentally knocked it off the shelf. He was reaching for a fan that I told him he could get and it tapped the glass shelf which made the plate shake off. The plate didn’t smash. It chipped a little. So little that even the security guard that watched him do it put it back on the shelf and said it was ok. Manager told me it was broken and I had to buy. My son was crying and apologising uncontrollably. He felt so bad. That was a big mistake. They lost a LOT of money due to this. I refused to go back. They made me buy a $12 plate and lost $150. Not smart on their part. It’s like all the breakable stuff is hanging off the edge of the shelves so that they fall and you have to buy them. It was the second day of my trip so I bought it without a scene but if it was my last day I wouldn’t have been so nice. I really wanted to break it in front of her so she could see what broken is. Apparently they aren’t part of the resort.
The vendors do come to the Resort but they are very annoying. Often asking for beer or food. They harass you to buy stuff from them. This I didn’t like. The beach was one thing but when they actually came to the resort forthe day it was horrible. I couldn’t walk anywhere without being bugged.
Nightly entertainment was good. We loved the Michael Jackson show. Loved when the staff would dance to the Royalton song. Although some of the staff didn’t seem to interested in doing it. Lol.
Medical team was good. Sadly we got to use this service. It was $160 to have my father in law looked at. He took a nasty fall on the pool deck by the cave bar entrance and knocked himself out. This was scary but staff worked together to make sure he was ok. The ground is extremely slippery when wet. My son fell too when he was getting out the lazy river to go on the water slide. Be careful. Walk slow.
Foam party was great but it’s a bit deep for kids so I had to hold my son. My father in laws girlfriend couldn’t come in because it was too deep for her and she can’t swim. Plus she is short. Lol.
Overall great holiday. Would definitely be back. Will try other Royalton hotels now too. Definitely would recommend upgrading to Diamond Club!
