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.

Great for families. Lovely landscaping. And good food.
Very family and kid friendly. But couples seemed to like it also. We stayed here from April 16-21, 2016. The staff was great with kids and very patient with parents too. We had room 2078 in bldg 3. It was ground floor and east facing, it looked out over the quiet pool. Nice covered patio to sit out on, since the afternoon sun was on the other side of the bldg. Room was fine but with few/no hanging pegs and bathroom lighting a bit too dark. And the toilet burped loudly the first couple of days, but the staff fixed it by draining out the septic tankâ¦or something. WiFi works well and is free. Great landscaping at this hotel. Food was better than I expected. A la carte wines at the restaurants were expensive, but you can just order a cocktail with dinner instead and avoid the $40 hit that way, since they did not sell wines by the glass. The buffet free wine was not good. I would suggest skipping the SmartTravel breakfast vacation club sales pitch meeting. I found the offer too expensive to bother seriously considering. And since you get breakfast free anyway, why bother sitting through it? Oh, they do give you a $50 coupon to use at the spa, but since everything there seems to start at $100â¦you are going to be out additional coin to use it. The only off-campus activity I did was the Don Lucas cigar factory tour, since they pick you up for free at your hotel. It was great for adults who like coffee, rum, chocolate, and cigars. But no good for kids. General DR travel tips: You do not need to exchange any currency while there, just use USD. And take plenty of $1 and $5 bills with you for tips. The taxi ride is fixed and posted in the airport, so donât worry about haggling. It was $40 to our hotel. You will get whacked at the airport with a $10/person tourist tax to enter the country. And you do not need to show up at the airport 3 hours ahead of your flight home. They just want you to sit around and spend $ at the duty free shops while you wait for your flight. 1 or 1.5 hours ahead of flight would have been more than enough. At least for the shoulder season.More
Great resort, and activities!
This resort was a great value for the money. Went with a group of friends from work and had a great time! Lots of activities, they even had zumba! The instructor (joanne) was awesome. She had great energy and very friendly. Other staff was nice and accommodating. Food and drinks were good. 4 out of 5, Since in wasnt beach front. They do have a water park and tram to take you to the beach.More
Nice resort for family vacation
My wife, 8 yr. old daughter and I just returned from week at this resort. It is similar in type, appearance and structure to most other similarly rated resorts in and around Caribbean, Mexico. That is, unlimited drinks and food, well tended grounds, comfortable rooms. The on site water park sets this one apart from nearby resorts. Memories Splash is next to an adjacent resort, Royalton, that is owned by the same company but is a bit more upscale. To access the beach, you take a short walk or motor train ride to Royalton. There is a restaurant, Grazie, next to the beach at Royalton. Although during check in we were informed that we could dine at Grazie, we found out that this is true only for brunch / lunch. Memories Splash guests cannot have dinner at any of the Royalton restaurants. No big deal, but we wasted a walk over there based on what we were told at Memories Splash. While on the beach, servers will bring water to Memories Splash guests, but nothing else. Again, not a big deal since you are seconds from a bar located right next to the beach . The bar offers full service to Memories Splash guests. My primary negative comment would have to be the noise level in the rooms. The buildings are constructed of stone, concrete and tile. While they look very nice, there apparently is little to no insulation in the walls so every sound echoes throughout the premises. Our room was on the first floor. We heard every door slam and hallway conversation for floor 2 and most of floor 3. Because there were alot of children staying there, there naturally was alot of noise from about 7 - 9 a.m. and 8 - 10:30 p.m. We asked for a quieter room and were informed that 3rd fl. rooms are in demand (likely due to the noise issue) and none were available. So, if possible, I would advise trying to get a 3rd fl. room. I imagine the 2nd fl. rooms are as noisy as 1st. We also noticed that the staff was less bilingual than at a similar Iberostar resort at which we previously stayed at Yucatan Peninsula. While acknowledging that we were guests in a Spanish speaking country, my understanding is that a large contingent of the resort clientele were English speaking North Americans. It was not a big detriment, but made for some understandable difficulty and mis-communications involving orders for drinks and food. There simply may not be that many local people who speak both languages, but something for the resort to work on.More

The Memories Splash Punta Cana was an amazing trip. My husband and I visited the property from April 16-23/16. The weather was amazing and it only rained once for a few hours one afternoon, but that didn't stop everyone from having fun. The grounds are beautiful and lush with nice paths to walk and run on. The trolley system makes it very easy for everyone to get around. The food was delicious and there were many choices of restaurants to pick from. The rooms were clean and had all of the amenities you needed. We visited both the SPA and the gym and they were awesome! The activities were fabulous at both properties and the entertainment staff were always encouraging and friendly. There were always activities going on throughout the resort. The staff from NRG2GO Joanne and Erin put on great Zumba and Yoga classes daily. The beach was absolutely stunning. We would definitely return to this property.More
Family fun in the sun
There are a few essential ingredients to a great break and thankfully Memories Dreams Splash ticks all the boxes and more. We upgraded to the Diamond Club black wristbands that allowed us to eat at the Royalton next door, gave us the quieter swimming pools and dedicated beds at the beach. People: One of the greatest assets this resort has is the people working at it. They do a great job of making you feel special and welcome. Each day at breakfast the people welcoming you in the restaurant my children were taught a little bit more Spanish. Everyone seems to go out his or her way to make you have a great time Restaurants: The Selections restaurant is very good, more choice than other places weâve stayed. Thankfully lots of fresh local fruit. Never had to wait to get in or wait for any food â always fresh. If staying for 10 days then it could be little samey but the lovely Mexican and Italian make up for this. We ate at the Royalton steak and Teppanyaki restaurants. All high quality and restaurants youâd be happy to pay for in major city. Tipping helps get a great service but isnât essential â although if youâve had great service then itâs a nice thank you. Swimming pools. Always busy never crowded. Resort suffers a little from sunbeds being blocked but show me a resort that doesnât. The staff will remove towels from beds if they arenât being used to free up space. Waterpark: Big enough for variety and small enough that the kids can go off on their own Location. Whilst it might not be in the beach you can either use the trolley service that runs every few minutes or walk the 5/10 minutes. (Do the walk â itâll do you good and its lovely). Rooms: Good size, could do with a little more hanging space but apart from that theyâve got everything you need. We left a few dollars tip everyday and room was cleaned, teddy bears organised and special touches added. Entertainment: Canât comment but people we spoke to said it was great. Cleanliness: Spotless - always lots of people making sure resort is pristine. Youâll also read people saying about how people try to force you into timeshare. Just politely say you arenât interested â donât go to the âfreeâ Royalton breakfast and you wonât have an issue. Top tip: Buy your Tourist visa before you leave â itâll save a massive queue at the airport.More
