Very good time!!!

Our stay at the Grand Palladium in Punta Cana was great! This was our first trip to the Dominican Republic, so I don't have anything to compare it to. The staff was very friendly, eager to help accommodate our requests, and make sure we had everything to enjoy the stay. We were upgraded to the Royal Suites section of the resort. This included many extras that were not offered in our original package. Overall, I would stay with them again. I would hope to see some discounts offered on our next stay. It was a lot of money for a family vacation, but we all had a great time.

Nice time

Overall a nice place but a few disappointments. We booked the palace resort they moved us to royal resort adults only it was basically for couples myself it was ok but the three boys felt out of place. Second the buffets were below par all the food tastes the same. We didn't realize u till the end that you needed to make reservations the day before for any of the good restraints. Lastly our transfer bus never arrived we had to take a taxi to the airport. One great note our rep at the hotel was fantastic and very helpful. That alone will make us consider using cheap Caribbean again.

Great place except

Great place and services except for the Brazilian restaurant their service was not up to par compared to the rest of the staff at the resort and the food was bad. The bar at the club needs better organization the guys were good but seemed overwhelmed but the crowd. Besides that the resort is great. Oh and I recommend the seaquarium excursion, snorkeling, sea floor walk, sea lions kiss, and swimming with small sharks and sting rays, and party boat. Great times

What's to Love

All-inclusive beach bliss on Bavaro Beach. Those white sands, teal waters, swaying palms. Swoon.

Winner of CheapCaribbean's Noble Beach Prize for "Most Bodacious Buffet" & we confirm - it's fab.

Five glorious pools where you can splish & splash and work on your tan lines.

Cocktail service on the beach & at the pool. Let the drinks come to you, while you sip under a palapa.

Hitting the gym, then heading to Zentropia Spa for some serious spoiling.

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

 

What We'd Change

Given the size of the property, getting around can take some time. Give yourself a few extra minutes when using the tram/bus transportation network.

 

Why You Should Go

You'll be sipping beachside in a flash - the resort is approx. 30 minutes from the airport.

A coral reef is right off the shores - grab snorkel gear & underwater camera for a pic opp.

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

Don't miss the themed parties, dance classes, and other opps to mix n' mingle with other beach lovin' folks.

There's a shopping arcade onsite with supermarket & souvenir shop. Load up for the buds.

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