Not a great experience

Service is horrible. Way under staffed, especially in the restaurants. Had to wait almost two hours to eat because not enough staff help to serve. We had kids and they would cry because they were starving a not enough help at the bars. Resort is huge and they need a lot more workers. Walking to the beach because it was not in front of our resort was a pain especially with kids. Lots of seaweed in the ocean and beach. They do not have the correct equipment to clean it up it just sits on the beach.

Fantastic vacation

This was our first trip out of the country, and it was a great one. The resort was so large with plenty to do, but we really enjoyed just staying on the beach most of the time. The bars are all conveniently located, so we never had to go far to get a drink, and there were plenty of beach chairs. The buffet restaurants were open most of the day, but it would have been great if they were open a bit later. The a la carte restaurants were fantastic, with delicious food (we especially liked the steakhouse). Service all around the resort was great. Everything is so gorgeous and well maintained. We were content with no plans! There is a strip of shops that are nice to shop in, and they are conveniently located. Employees were friendly, and most were bilingual or at least understood enough English that we could communicate with our combined Spanglish. :) The only downsides to the whole trip were sales pitches. There is a table set up daily right outside the lobby that we frequently had to walk past. The men here are fairly pushy in trying to get you to come and buy from them, so we learned quickly to say no immediately or at take a different route when walking around. There was also the "free gift" from the Travel Club that was offered. We went to claim it, were greeted by a very friendly guy who made it seem like he was out and we had to come back later when he had restocked. So we came back later, and he walked us over to the actual Travel Club area where we were then put in a meeting about the club that would have been an hour and a half tour and presentation that we had no interest in. The original guy then asked us to come back again later - we didn't because we had already wasted time waiting around the first time because we were misled. The next day, as we were waiting on a taxi (on our last night there) the guy found us in the lobby and tried to get us to come for the presentation again. He promised certificates for massages, coffee beans, and a beach bag, but we only got this "free gift" if we spent more time on this presentation and sales pitch. Being polite in declining didn't work, so we finally had to tell him we were not interested at all before he backed off.

Great Place

We had a great time! The resort was wonderful, room was very comfortable, a little small but the furnishings were very nice. The Staff was amazing!!!!!!!!!! we had great service everywhere and from all the employees. The only 2 downsides, not all the staff speaks English and even those who do are not really fluent. So you do need some patience or know Spanish. Lucky for us my brother inlaw is fluent in Spanish so we had no issues but there were others there that were a little frustrated at times trying to communicate their needs. The staff however was endlessly patient and bent over backwards to accommodate everyone. No Room service till 11am, so no breakfast in bed. Not the end of the world the buffet is open early and was great, again the staff rocked. but there was one or two mornings I really wanted to breakfast in my room. Overall this was a great place, the pool and beach were great. All the food at all the restaurants was great and there was plenty to do. I would defiantly recommend this resort.

Amazing Family Vacation

This was an amazing resort, the staff was so wonderful and nice, and extremely helpful . My family stayed here in 3 room for 8 days and we never had a problem. Rooms were cleaned every day and all areas of the resort were clean and extremely enjoyable. The bar staff in the main lobby was my favorite, Francisco and Crelin were absolutely amazing and made us feel so at home. The beaches were so beautiful and relaxing. We will be returning in the near future!!!

What's to Love

All-inclusive paradise that sits on one of Punta Cana's claim to fame, Bavaro Beach.

Take a dip into all five pools throughout your stay. One is only for sun-loving adults.

Relaxing by the beach where fruity cocktails are delivered to you. All. Day. Long.

Indulging in all kinds of delicious, stress-melting treatments at Zentropia Spa.

A mega amount of activities for everyone, including a Kid's Club and a club for the teens.

Wining big at the casino - you might as well give it a spin.

 

What We'd Change

It takes a while to get around the resort due to its size, but who could shy away from all these incredible amenities?
 

Why You Should Go

You'll be sitting under a swaying palm in no time - the resort is about 30 minutes away.

You can snorkel in the coral reef right off the shores at the resort. Dive in.

Live music every night, plus a disco for the adults & a mini-disco for the kids. Bring your platforms.

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

You've got privileges at the two other resorts in the Palladium Punta Cana complex. Three resorts for one.

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