The Memories Splash Punta Cana Resort & Casino

Is it the right hotel for your vacation?

Your kids are going to love the Memories Splash Punta Cana Resort & Casino. Why? This resort is one of the few in the Punta Cana area that cater to entertaining children and teenagers. Now, there are plenty of fun activities to do as well for adults (especially if you are a kid at heart).

The Memories Splash Punta Cana formerly known as Grand Paradise Bavaro along with the Royalton belongs to a complex located approximately 30 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport. Both of them are excellent properties; however, they are focused on different audiences. Kids will find the memories very appealing due to their vast array of entertainment alternatives. Adults, especially couples in a romantic trip will find the Royalton to be more adequate to their needs.

The large size of the complex offer particular benefits and disadvantages. On one hand, you got plenty of choices for eating and activities, on the other hand, you have to walk for a few minutes to get to most areas. The shuttle solves most of the issues with the transportation, so be patient or walk (is just a few minutes anyway). Check-in is a bit lengthy, but the staff is helpful (speaking a bit of Spanish and tipping can do wonders). The grounds are spotless and well kept.

The water park is where you want to go. Only a few of them exist in the Dominican Republic, so take advantage of it, your kids will love you for it. The Diamond Club makes a big difference in your vacation (make sure you get a good butler).

The first thing you may have noticed when picking a room is none of them have a view of the ocean due to the fact the Splash doesn’t have a beach per se.

No elevators, so you have to take the stairs if you stay at second or third floor. The fridge is restocked daily with your favorite beverages (especially if you are in the Diamond Club). Maids keep the room spotless and the service won’t disappoint you.

Pool and Beach

Who doesn’t love a good pool right? The pool at the Memories is going to delight you. Crystal clear refreshing water and plenty of chairs to ease off will make your vacation days memorable. No need to fight for sunbeds as there are more than enough. Getting a drink at the main pool bar is not that easy with lots of people, but it can be done with persistence (show them how badly you want that drink). The towel service is not super efficient, so you better take good care of the ones you do get.

This hotel doesn’t have a beach, but refreshing at the beach of the Royalton is easy enough. You only need to wait for the shuttle or walk for 5 minutes to be there. If you are in the Diamond Club, you will love it. Having a waiter delivering your favorite cocktail or snack as you lie down under the shade of a palm tree is priceless.
