The Room Service was good with the exception of continuously requesting the service for towels. We did not get towels until after the 4 request and it end up being around 12:00am in the morning. Food was not so great.

Piece of Heaven

It was a beautiful and serene resort. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. However my room was without lights and working appliances. I made serval attempts and calls with no resolution. Finally on my day of departure I was offered a room change but I was leaving. It was truly frustrating.

NO CUSTOMER SERVICE AT ALL

Nothng but issues from day 1. The biggest was being cursed at by a group of let's say low class individuals were intoxicated, screaming kids at all hours. I asked for a different room and had to wait 6 hours all afternoon for the manager to call she didn't and I was told to come to the reception which by the way is 2 miles away. I was told I "had" to attend a quick briefing that would last an hour but I would be compensated I was there THREE HOURS so angry as another afternoon wasted, what made me more angry is the guy that comes in at the end had an attitude when I said I wanted to think no about paying $17,500 so that definitely made me leave, compensation was a bottle of syrup and a tiny bottle of local booze. I was by myself this trip so having a group of thugs staying close to my room and hurling abuse ruined the two days I was there I spent several hours trying to get a room change with no food all day I was in tears by 8 pm and asking the airlines to get me home sooner. All management did was offer me a horrible room with a broken fridge and door lock and a smokers room which I did not pay for. Needless to say I will never return. Additionally I spent the times i did go to eat walking around asking for water as no one would come over.

Great vacation

Went with the family (3 older teens and wife). Rooms were clean no bugs. My kids room smelled musty but the kids didn't mind and since it was next to ours and we did not want them to spend all their time in it we did not complain. The trip was all inclusive and we did not need reservations at the restaurants. All 3 resorts were included and they do have shuttles but most of the time walked between resorts. We did not speak the language but enough staff spoke English so was not a big problem. When ordering drinks it was not consistent, my wife ordered a chi chi and sometimes she got a chi chi and other times it was some other alcoholic beverage that she enjoyed but not what she ordered. The desserts were beautiful to look at but the taste was not to our liking very dense and different types of ingredients changes the texture and taste. We went to the Brazilian restaurant,the steakhouse, and the italian restaurant which were all good. I enjoyed the italian the best. We went to different shows and activities and there was always something going on but staff did not always know where or what was going on. If you plan to do activities use the guide given at check in not the flyers hung around resort. We played bingo twice. My son and I did archery and played chess. There was water biking,magic show, karaoke,fire show etc. The casino is very small but we are not gamblers so it did not make a difference. We got resort credits at check in and spent a day at the spa using the credits. Overall great value

What's to Love

All-inclusive beachy hot spot on the jaw-dropping Bavaro Beach. Totally worth it.

Spectacular service that spoils you from the moment your flip-flops hit the deck. And, reservations not needed at the restaurants.

Five pools throughout the complex where you can sip and sun and savor this vacay haven.

Cocktail service on the beach and at the pool. Let the drinks come to you, while you sip under the Palapa.

Detoxing at the gym, then being pampered at Zentropia Spa - nothing beats sinking into a Turkish Bath.

Activities galore for you and the fam, including a Kid's Club and a club for the teens.

 

What We'd Change

This is a huge resort, but it has to be if you want all the great features.
 

Why You Should Go

A short zippy ride from the airport to the resort where a Welcome Cocktail awaits you and the party starts.

You've got privileges at the two other resorts in the Palladium Punta Cana complex. Mega bonus.

A palatial sized resort that caters to all your dining whims. Some are spread out, giving you time to explore.

Themed parties throughout the week - like the Foam party on Thursday. Crazy fun.

Buy your tourist card before you leave - saves a step at the airport so you can get beachy faster.
