help me chosing between two resort! GBPF or Royalton Bavaro

Hi,

First time this years in Punta Cana, been to Cuba and Mexico a few times but wanted to try Punta Cana this year. We looking to book end of June, and cant choose between two resorts.

Me and my wife have two daughters (4 & 2 years old)

I just saw a great deal to the Royalton Bavaro beach, and we were supposed to book at the gran bahia principe Fantasia but the roayalton really mixed our minds.

Which hotel is better for us ? Royalton is new and was really over budget (till now) for us

Each hotel offers a good variety of things to do for the kids.. my kids are happy with a pool and small waterpark and sand but for us, we looking for the best bang for the $$ (royalton is 200$ cheaper)

I dont mind the big resort, been to grand bahia principe in mexico before.. we are looking for good variety at the buffet and good restaurants! smaller resort is a plus..

which of the the two is better for us ?

Also if i book at the royalton , will i be able to go to the other royalton next door? (Royalton Punta cana)

Thanks

If Royalton is cheaper I would book it now. Fantasia looks nice but is on a huge complex and is away from the beach. Royalton Bavaro would be my choice in this case. BTW, if you book Diamond Club then yes you would have access to the other Bavaro and the water park at Memories.

Diamond club seem very expensive (for 4 person ), how much would it be if i book directly with the resort?

It can sometimes be cheaper to wait until you get to the resort if the resort isn't at full occupancy. Note that unless you absolutely want access to the other Royalton, DC isn't a must at Royalton. You could also choose Royalton PC which would automatically give you access to Memories.

I would do Royalton too.

The Bahia also seems SOO crowded and impossible to get a lounger (haven't stayed there, but walked by many times).

Royalton seems much calmer and more relaxing.

I would go with Royalton Bavaro, Grand Bahia Principe is way too crowded and way to many different resorts inside which could be very confusing, we went to drop off people after an excursion and my god that was terrible and confusing.
