Family time in the Caribbean May 2018

We arrived at the Royalton Bavaro and were greeted with a welcome drink while we checked in. The reception area was very modern and had the wow factor!

Our room was great, with two large beds and a sofa bed, a whirlpool bath and separate shower and toilet, with a lovely balcony overlooking the lazy river and grounds.

We quickly changed and went for an explore. The hotel has two lovely pools, one with swim up bar, and extra one if in the Diamond Club, plus a lazy river with waterfalls and swim up bar inside the caves! There are many bars to choose from and not sure we actually found them all. As well as a main restaurant there are a la carte restaurants that you can choose from, we are at the Italian, Japanese, Brazilian, Sea Food and Steak restaurants and two of them more than once, you don't need to book in advance and can go to any of them as many times as you like! Occasionally we had to wait half an hour but a good excuse to go and have a cocktail or glass of fizz before dinner!

The main restaurant was ideal for breakfast with everything you could wish for, again you could eat there at lunch or go to the outside BBQ restaurant, the fish restaurant by the beach was great for lunch and had everything from chicken, fish, salads, potatoes, chips, breads, vegetables, pizza, burgers etc etc. There was also a burger van by the beach serving burgers and fries! There is a coffee shop service fresh coffee, croissants, pastries, ice cream which was a hit with us all!

There were activities on during the day and these included, aqua fit, beach volleyball, boccia, foam party. There was also a Flow Rider which the kids can use as much as they like when open, this is all included. There is also a mini golf course close to the teens club, which has table tennis, basketball court, pool and other games.

There was some evening entertainment which was good, although we didn't go to a lot of it as we were a bit later having dinner as never wanted to leave the pool or beach. There are water sports on the beach and non-motorised are all included.

The staff are amazing and nothing too much trouble, they bought us drinks by the pool and on the beach, always with a smile.

We had a fantastic family holiday and would love to go back.
