Good value, horrible check-in

This was our first Dominican Republic trip. The check in process was horrible and ended up taking 5 hours of our time. After paying for an upgrade and being shown to our "swim up" room, we were taken to a second story pool view room. We were told we needed to go back to the original resort (Bavaro) for a refund or to get things sorted out. The people at the Royal Suites were nice but couldn't help us with what was promised from the Bavaro (they don't really work together). After finding our luggage and traveling back to the original check-in point, we were told this was a misunderstanding and they wouldn't give us our money back. They said we knew it was a second story room.....obviously not what was promised. The check in desk and manager weren't helpful and continued to not make any changes or give us any options. We finally, after a long discussion, got a room back at the Royal Suites for a minimum upgrade with pool and ocean views. Next time we would book directly with Royal Suites and not the Bavaro. It was a waste of time and we were never told "sorry" or given an apology. It was a very bad start to our vacation. The Royal Suites are nice and their "extras" are worth the money spent. Charlie helped us and followed up with us during our stay. We would probably try a different resort next time or book the Royal Suites and not waste our time elsewhere on the grounds. The pool, beach and drinks were to be expected and a good value for the money spent.

Beach and pools were great. We switched rooms 3 times in 3 days due to bad air conditioning, bad fridge and keys that didn't work. The food was fair at best and we spent the last 2 nights in our hotel room on the toilet. All in all, not as relaxing as we had hoped and we won't rush back there.

Don't be fooled by bad reviews! Amazing resort!!!!

I booked this trip for my spouse and I to get a vacation alone without the little one. I looked at numerous resorts in Punta Cana and finally decided on Grand Palladium Bavari Suites. Prior to our trip I looked at some reviews on here and was actually nervous. I was doubting my decision. Upon arrival the lobby was absolutely breathtaking! The receptionists (I was happy to hear) spoke English VERY well and it was very easy to communicate with them. They were so accommodating and brought us a tropical drink and warm cloth while we checked in. We upgraded our room to the deluxe luxury suite with the balcony and jacuzzi on top (it was well worth the upgrade). The room was beautiful (some minor cosmetic stuff but overall a beautiful room) and the balcony had an incredible view. The only issue we had with our room all week was the jacuzzi wasn't filling all the way and the staff immediately came and dealt with the problem and then gave us free late checkout for the inconvenience (our flight didn't leave until 530pm). The grounds throughout the resort were breathtaking and immaculate. The food (which got some bad comments) was amazing at every restaurant whether it was a buffet or sit down dinner. There is a hibachi restaurant that was incredible. I was honestly surprised considering the comments I had read about how wrong ppl were when it came to good quality. My wife is very picky and even she was extremely impressed with the quality everywhere we ate. The beach is the most beautiful beach and water I've ever seen!!! Great bars and activities are conviently located throughout the long stretch of beach on the property. We got a massage on the beach and it was amazing! Only negative I can say about the beach is there are a lot of people trying to sell things and it gets a little exhausting (however this is by no means any fault of the resort) All the staff spoke English and several other languages fluently!! Everyone was friendly and happy to help in any given situation. They even put on a huge American themed party on Wednesday night to thank us for being there and get our feedback on the resort, staff, food etc. The concierge Fransisco who ran the party was absolutely fantastic and very accommodating! I would HIGHLY recommend this resort to anyone looking to visit the Dominican Republic and my wife and I plan to return many times over! Best resort and vacation getaway we have ever had!

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.
