Grand Palladium Bavaro
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Grand Palladium Bavaro is a good option for those looking for a budget conscious vacation and are looking for a quick getaway. The resort is very large as it is compiled by two other resorts. Despite it's size, there are shuttle services available. Because of the sheer size of the resort, there is plenty of room to lounge around the beach. The resort is staffed by a great attentive team. However, if you're looking for a resort that boasts great food options, it's best to look elsewhere.
Location: Beachfront, 60 minutes from Higuey, 25 minutes from the airport.
everything was good the service and the food was good and the room is nice Corina was good to us, the beach was good pool and the weather was great corina got us in the most popular restaurant when they were all booked up we were very thankful
Very good experience. Room clean and customer service is very good.Food was okay but bland. Overall good experience. Loved the beach experience and the fantastic weather🍔🌲☘️🕶❤️🌤. Corina was excellent she has very good customer service skills and was ver helpful.
This resort was so nice and well maintained. It is apparent between grounds, maintenance and the cleaning staff that everyone works very hard to keep this resort in pristine condition. Whenever you walk by the staff they are so friendly and willing to go the extra mile to ensure that you have a good stay. The beaches are also amazing and well worth a visit. There are people on the beach selling things however, they are polite and walk away when you say 'no thanks'. Unfortunately, the food is nothing too special and there is little variety at the buffets each day. That being said, I would highly recommend making reservations at the restaurants which are very nice. I have no complaints about the restaurant food and the wait staff is very accommodating. The biggest downside to this was the lobby of the resort itself. There are many sales persons who do not work for the hotel who try to sell excursions and with my experience, they do not truly know what they are selling. Just be sure to ask them many questions about the product or service they are selling. Lastly, the best part of this resort was hands down the entertainment team. They always had some sort of activity planned and worked hard to make sure no one was bored. From Zumba to towel folding lessons to parties on the beach, they planned it all. As someone who does not like to sit still on vacation I will say that they did not disappoint. With endless amounts of energy, Gasoline was always active in finding people to participate in activities and talking to the guests. He was always around the pool if you had any questions and most especially to rope you into doing some sort of dance activity. Mickey was constantly behind the scenes running the activities from a distance and never disappointed in his bingo reading or MC abilities. Sammy took time to learn most every guests' names and made it a priority to add humor to the entertainment team. In my own experience, I found that I was always with at least one of the members of the team the whole trip and had a great time. I would highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a more active vacation.
Great stay - just not enough time to do and see everything.We arrived very early on Sunday morning and had to hang up in the lobby for awhile. We were able to eat and then finally they gave us the wristbands so we could go about the resort until our room was available. We were able to check in a little earlier which was nice. We had the Family Connecting Suite and it was great.The resort grounds are very nice.The pools are not heated so they were a little colder then what we expected. After you got in and moved around it was fine. I would like to see them cleaned better and more often. They always had a bunch of stuff floating around in them.I would say that language is a bigger barrier than other places we have been. Thank goodness for Google translate as that seemed to work the best when they didn't understand.The beach was great. The sand was soft and white and easy to find chairs. They could keep the pathway to the beach clearer and clean and keep the showers cleaned out with sand.The beach vendors are constant and relentless. If you want something though you can bargain and get items at a good price.The food was pretty good. We usually had breakfast at the La Catedral buffett and lunch at the Arrecife Beach Buffet. For dinner we ate at the a la carte restaurants. We were able to get reservations to all but the Steakhouse. You do need to do this right away. Some of them you can only do a day in advance (before noon) and then some you could do several days out. The Japanese, Sumptuori, was the best by far. The other restaurants were just ok, Mexican, La Adelita and the Oriental, Bamboo, Brazilian, Rodizio. The Italian, Rafaelle, was terrible.They have a couple places that you can either get snacks or are open 24 hours. Room service also was great and only took about 20 minutes. Very nice at the end of a long day!The drinks across the bars, pools, beach all seemed to vary some to strong, some to weak. You could usually find something you liked though.There are bugs in the evenings so make sure to bring bug spray. I also got bit in my room so I had the sheets changed often which seemed to help??Unless you really want to buy into their resort system I would skip the breakfast and tour of the property. It always takes more time then what they say. We did get two lobster dinners and two tshirts out of it but not sure it was worth the time.We didn't have time to do all the activities - they have many sports and water activities but we enjoyed the pool and beach.We took two day trips which both were great. Santo Domingo and then Alto de Chavon and Saona Island. Both are long days but very fun and we had a great time.Most of the staff is very friendly and helpful to whatever you need.
I would recommend people to visit this resort. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. That's one thing that I love about this place. Everyone greedy you with a smile all day every day. Thanks leonelis for everything.
