This hotel has gone to town with its new waterpark. It also packs in pools, restaurants and a glut of sports and activities.
Tropical gardens set the scene for the new waterpark here – it’s got all sorts on the bill, from speedy chutes to mini-slides for kids. There are a couple of pools to pick from, too.
The hotel sits close to a sandy beach that hosts everything from volleyball to snorkelling. And inside, rooms are modern and stocked with big beds, USB charging stations and a balcony or terrace.

First Class Resort
We just got back from a week at this resort (April 3 to 10) and we had a blast. I have been to numerous all-inclusive resorts across the Caribbean and I can say from experience that this is one of the best all-around resorts out there. It is very well managed and caters very well to families and singles from all ages. The beach is fabulous and big enough to accommodate everyone without overcrowding. The grounds are beautiful and very well-manicured and the resort is simply breathtakingly beautiful and thoughtfully designed. The only flaw in design that I can say would be the use of (although very beautiful) very slippery tiles (when wet) around the many pools on the property. Beware! The staff is hard working and very friendly. Shout out to Jhonny, Nixon (Milky way) and Mary from the animation team which we had many pleasant conversations with. Entertainment was of good quality and for every taste. We never got bored from lack of things to do. The water park is simply the best and surprisingly big to be included in this resort at no extra charge. Top quality! The food is good all-around although I found that the buffet selections were sometime a bit limited for my taste. The resort goes out of its way to ensure guests never go hungry and with convenience. There were always BBQ serving delicious burgers (real hamburger meat!), hot dogs & fries by the pools & beach. There were cafÃ© style shops here and there serving snacks, coffee and desserts and of course the many buffet and al-la cart restaurants which were very good and beautiful in design also. The unlimited and no-reservation needed for al-la cart restaurants was a nice touch. They also allow men to wear dress shorts at the restaurants which was very nice because it is hot for us too! We are on vacation after all! There are many bars serving top quality drinks including some specialty bars (martini) and sport bar and night club which were really fun. Bar tenders were good, enthusiastic and friendly. Although we were at the Memories side of the resort, we were able to enjoy most of the Royalton conveniences in bars, restaurants and amenities with few exceptions which was a nice touch since that resort was simply marvelous. Also, we found that the shops merchandise in general were well priced and not overcharging guests like we often see in typical resorts. We usually never go back twice to the same resort because we like to see different sites but we canât wait to go back to this one and enjoy as a family with our son next time. I could go on and on about this place and how nice it is! Try it for yourselves and I am sure you will enjoy it too! Great quality and value for our hard earned dollars. Thank you Memories for taking care of us so well! See you again soonâ¦More

Memories Splash created memories
The staff at the resort were second to none. The bar staff at the Splash Pool were fantastic. Angelo, Roberto, Ramon and Elibonia treated us great. Jose the entertainer kept everyone entertained. Selections buffet had great food and the staff treated us extremely well. Going back next year without hesitation.More

Back from a one week stay at Memories. Flew Sunwing. Good flight and arrived earlier than scheduled. Lineups at the airport (to pay the $10 entry fee) was quick, as was immigration. We had our luggage and were on the bus in about 20-25 minutes. We must have been first off the bus because there was no line for check-in upon arrival. Lobby is tiny compared to every other resort I've been to, but it is clean and quaint. The guys out front will take your luggage as soon as you get off the bus and will tag it. You just give your half of the tag to reception when checking in, and soon enough your bags will be in your room. We were in block 4, first floor facing the road. Not one of my favorite rooms. It was clean, and they had put in an extra bed (cot) which was great as there were four of us. Sink area is very small, so hard to find room to put toiletries for a family of four (a shelf under the sink might be helpful). It had a good sized walk-in closet which provided extra space to put suitcases and contained the safe. Nice wall-mounted flatscreen tv with some half decent english-speaking channels (or some great spanish soccer). I have lots of back and muscle issues, but found the bed comfortable, as were the pillows. We asked for extra bottles of water, which we received each day (I put a note and tip in the bar fridge). Hallway noise is a bit louder than typical. Also, facing the road there was ALOT of vehicle noise, beginning at 6:00 am. We were usually up early, so not a huge deal. Found the food to be good in all places. There was enough selection that nobody could possibly starve! We ate at all 3 a-la-cartes. Service in Mexican not as good as the others. With the exception of Bella Cucina on just that one night, there was no waiting to get in. We'd usually show up around 7-7:30 for dinner and they would be able to seat our party of 7. Never a problem getting a table at the buffet either, though sometimes it was busy. LOVED the self-serve mimosa bar at the breadfast buffet! Kids loved getting icecream at the cafe. Burgers were the small slider type which I found perfect for a snack. We either grabbed these and fries at Bites by the waterpark, or they had a bbq station by the activities pool every day. Lots of variety at the bars, with great bartenders. Best pina-colada was from the bartender in the Mexican restaurant. Also ate one afternoon at Grazie, which is the buffet at Royalton. Food pretty much the same as you would find at the Memories buffet. Pools were a nice temperature. Made use of both the activities pool and the quiet pool. Resort was at full capacity, so finding a chair was difficult unless you had your towels down early. Pools were very busy. Public washrooms were clean and behind every pool bar. My friend and I got a massage above the activies pool. Was just ok (I am used to therapeutic massages, so it was not as deep tissue as I need). Beach was lovely. The guys would go out every morning at 6:30 am for a swim and was red flag every morning. By afternoon, yellow flag every day. Punta Cana is not exactly known for calm water so this was expected. Kids had fun playing in the waves. Ocean floor is all sand so no rocks to hit your toes on. Water is clean, sparkling and warm. Lots of beach chairs available. You just have to drag them from here and there to get 7. Beach bar is good, but can get very busy. The blue and white beach chairs are comfortable (same ones like at the pool), much better than the hard plastic ones I've sat on in other places. The walk to the beach was not that long, and is a rather lovely one with all those trees. If the tram happend to go by, we'd hop on. Waterpark - wow. This was a HUGE plus for the kids. They often spent the majority of the day there. Every slide is manned with someone at the top and the bottom to ensure safety. I went on them too, and they were a blast! Wave pool also has 2 lifeguards on duty when the wave machine is going (one guard when the waves are off). One set of stairs which branches off towards whatever slide you care to go on one you get near the top. Awesome fun activity at this resort (which was the main reason I booked it). We'd walk over to the Royalton each night to check out the show at the theater. Have to say that although the theater is nice, I was not too impressed with the shows. Most of them were just dancing, and were of no interest at all to 11 and 13 years old kid. The circus show by the pool looked like it could be good, but it started to rain so the show was stopped and we left. Missed the Michael Jackson show and the magic show was on the night we left. I believe those two are the more highly rated ones, so catch them if you can. Would not even bother with the Diamond Club. The area around the (quiet) pool was all shaded with a tiny pool. We are there for some sun. Whatever alcohol we drank was perfectly suitable, including cream liquers and champagne at every bar. As mentioned, we only had to wait one night to get into an a-la-carte, so reservations would have been useless. The Diamond Club area on the beach is simply a roped off area. You still share the same sand and ocean water as everyone else, so that area is certainly not special or nicer in any way. And I like to get off my behind to get my own drink at the bar. Gives you a chance to socialize and meet some new people. Staff is the huge plus at this resort. Everyone from reception to animation to bartenders to wait staff were all top-notch friendly and willing to help you. Good job everybody! Management, you should be proud of your employees! Would I stay at Memories again? Yes, if I went with my kids, simply due to the proximity of the waterpark so they could come and go as they wish. And it really was a perfectly suitable resort and we have no complaints at all. Without kids I would probably choose the Royalton since the price is not too much different. Free wifi was a plus. Worked well from the rooms to the beach. We did not book any excersions through the resort. I booked Just Safari (jeep tour) before I left home. I will review that separately, but let me just say it was the highlight of our week. Absolutely amazing! All in all, we had a great week and loved spending our vacation at Memories. Thank you Memories for making this week so great!More

Myself and 3 girlfriends stayed at Memories in Punta Cana for 7 days for my birthday trip. Initially there was a mix up with our rooms and we had to wait an hour to get into our new room, only to find out it needed to be cleaned which meant another half hour of waiting. The rooms were clean and comfortable, albeit freezing. Upon arriving in the room there was a bottle of champagne on ice and a fruit platter on the bed waiting for me, which was a nice touch after waiting almost 2 hours to get in the room. We booked in advance online and paid once we arrived. This was the first time I had ever done this and I was a bit skeptical, but it worked out perfectly. The staff speaks nor understands any English, so our sign language came in handy. The resort is all inclusive and the restaurants were nice and not overly crowded. We went daily to the Royalton resort next door for beach access. The beach is gorgeous with numerous water sports and activities. The Splash Park is amazing. This was the best part of the resort with the many slides and water features. Overall the trip was relaxing and a nice introduction to Punta Cana.More

Memories-Splash Punta Cana
We loved our week at Memories! The staff was very helpful and friendly! Mary, Jhonny, Jose, and Milky Way put on excellent entertainment!the water park was great and the food was very good! The only thing we disliked was being badgered by the concierge in our building (#9) to buy into a time share. Even after we told him no. We ended up avoiding the front stairs and used the side entryways. Other than that we have no complaints! We will come back again very soon!More
