Featuring one of the Caribbean’s largest resort water parks, complete with a variety of impressive waterslides and a wave pool, the economical Royalton Splash caters well to families. The property isn’t directly on the beach (it’s a long walk or a quick shuttle ride away); this factor has a negative effect on the Overall Beach Resort Rating – but once you’re there, the beach is quite nice. The grounds can get fairly crowded, dining variety is below average for an all-inclusive, and there’s a $20 charge for lost wristbands; but the resort offers family-friendly rooms with bunk beds, separate kids and teens clubs, two swim-up bars, an ice cream bar, a large main swimming pool, high quality tennis courts, and modern restaurants and dining areas with decent food for a Dominican all-inclusive. Guests have access to some of the amenities of the Royalton Punta Cana next door, including the spa and gym (there’s no spa or fitness center directly on-site). Other activities on-site and in the immediate vicinity include tennis lessons, scuba diving, snorkeling, parasailing, and sailing.
Complimentary COVID-19 antigen tests are available on-site for guests returning to the United States. There is currently no required number of nights stayed to qualify (subject to change).
