Average service/beautiful resort

Hotel grounds/room/pool were all beautiful. Room service and housekeeping were awesome. The daily paella at the beach was incredible. Pedro at the secret pool was amazing. The resort is huge, the trams run every 10 mins or so, giving you easy transportation around the resort. Food service was below average compared to other resorts. We waited at the buffet for coffee and water, even after asking the servers, for over 10 minutes on two separate occasions. There were a ton of different restaurants with different food options. The buffets had quite a few choices: but some things weren’t labeled correctly. Sometimes you’d wait 10+ minutes at the beach bar to get a drink. Sumptouri seemed to be the most popular restaurant and requires reservations, but i felt most hibachi restaurants at home have much better food quality. The sports bar had all fried food, not the best. The buffet at la Adelita was very good-lots of salsas. My fiancé woke up with food poisoning for 6+ hours after eating here. Did we have a great time: yes Would we return to this resort: probably not

FOOD POSIONING

This was my worst experience ever. I went with a group of 12 friends and 10 of us got food posioning. We all had vomitting, cramping, and diarrhea even after we left and came back home. We couldn't even really enjoy our time there always in the bathroom. The pools were never cleaned.

Very nice location but overall not good

The location is very nice however the restaurants are closed between 10am and noon and 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. which made it difficult when our family of 4 was hungry. We originally thought the restaurants were open 24 hours but only one is with poor food. The server service is very good however the selection of food is poor. The rooms are very nice however our TV did not work the 7 days we were here we called several times and no one came to fix our TV. Everywhere on the property wherever you go you are stopped to buy jewelry,excursions, photo shoots and Spa service which gets very annoying.

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.

You don't need reservations at any of the restaurants.

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.
