Secrets Royal Beach or Royal Suites Turquesa?

Hello All

Looking to book a holiday for January 2019, can't decide which hotel to book.

I am coming with my girlfriend (hoping to come home with a fiancee....), so want to book something a bit special. I am 42, she is 38. I have stayed at RST before and did enjoy it, but just wondered if SRB was a better hotel?

Any thoughts, suggestions, would be most appreciated.

Nick

Have been to SRB and enjoyed it and planning to spend 5 nights at TRS in Feb. TRS has rebranded and upgraded the beginning of this year. From what I have read significantly. I see a lot of posts of people who were there before the rebranding so take that for what it's worth. Have been following TRS on here and Facebook and been seeing good things since beginning of year.

We are also from the UK and stayed at SRB back in Sept 15 .... personally it wasn't for us. We have previously been to both Excellence Resorts in Punta Cana, and have recently tried to rebook their Excellence Punta Cana Resort ... unfortunately fully booked, hence trying Now Onyx in the Adult Only area. Would add that both Excellence Resorts are stand alone Adult Only hotels, if that's important to you.

HI

We went to SRB this February, wasn’t impressed at all. Not what I was expecting from hot it was described by TUI and the hotel website.

My review has more details.

If you go to Punta cana, fly premium, deffo worth the money.

I will say that he TRS brand at Palladium is a big step up from their Royal brand. Best wishes on your trip!

Thanks for all the replies so far.

I can’t find any info on the upgrades at TRS? I’m guessing it’s the non swim up rooms that have been updated?

Google TRS rebranding. I know new restaurants and overall upgrade of resort. Facebook frequent guests love the new look.

Nick, i was in the same boat that you are in. i could not decide which resort to go (secrets or turquesa). Both seem really nice and we have never been so i was clueless. I contacted an adviser from Apple Vaca and discussed with her our wants, must haves, and expectations and she referred the Secrets Royal Beach. we are heading down Aug 18-24, so we shall see. I will try to let you know how it goes when we return. I have heard from numerous people that Secrets resorts are top notch. Best of luck to you!
