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.
We all had a great time at the grand palladium bavaro. Everything is very good. Chocolate and gasoline were some of the best entertainers. Everyone is welcoming and friendly. The beach is beautiful, the rooms are beautiful and the food is delicious!! I will come back again to this hotel.
I had such a fun time at The Grand palladium vabaro suites, the staff was awesome and the entertainment was super fun. Chocolatè and gasoline where the best entertainers by far! I will for sure come back for another visit sometime soon!!
This was our first trip to Punta Cana. We booked through apple vacation and I was very pleased with the whole experience. The package included flight, transfers and all inclusive resort.Our flight was direct from Pittsburgh to Punta Cana. The transfers were fairly simple but could be confusing if not tips from our travel agent.The resort itself was amazing!!! Big enough to feel like you space but everything was 5-10 minutes walk. The staff was very friendly and seemed to care. The only disappointment came from the sales people pushing products none were overly aggressive except for the travel club. Do not go to the breakfast!!!The food was good not great. Plenty of choices and pretty fresh. The drinks were very good and also great selection.Advice- pack light!!! You do not need to dress up for the diners. Wear plenty of sunblock!!! We tipped and probably why we go got good service.We felt very safe and I definitely recommend this resort.
All the good reviews about the resort are all true. The food was great. Ala cartes with no reservations make it that much better. The room was very clean and the king bed was very comfortable.Whisky drinkers be advised there is only one bar named Hemingway's that has bourbon (Jim Beam). That bar also had Jack Daniels. I'm not sure if that bar has Canadian Whiskey either. The lobby, restaurants and pool bars do not. As usual they have all great rum and mid shelf vodka and gin. El Jimador tequila made some fine margaritas.The service was great too.
We have just been to this fantastic hotel again and we cannot rate it high enough. We stay in the Bavaro section, the only reason being we have always stayed there and we know lots of people.The rooms are fine yes we got some water in when it rained but no great problem, towels did a good job. Our maid Maria did a fabulous job every day and we always had a word or two with her, try it.The gardens are superb, truly stunning and kept in amazing condition. I'd like to thank the gardeners and I hope Management find time to pass my comments to them. I know few by name Fernando and Palito, but everyone of them said Good Morning, How are you whilst doing a fantastic job in the gardens and on the beach.The food at all restaurants is great but I prefer the buffets to the speciality restaurants of which the Brazilian is my favourite. You can get a steak, fillet if you wish cooked at every meal. One of my favourite meals was the goat stew in Arrecife Restaurant, just beautiful. There was a wide choice of soups, meats, fish, pasta, paella everything you could wish for every day. The food is exceptionally good. In the Restaurants we must thank many Chefs and serving staff, Wilson Batista and the others at Cathedral, Joel Sosa, Pito and all the cooks in Arrecife and waiters, Francisco, Franchesca, Julio, Contin and just too many others for me to write. Be patient and you will get served.On the bar side where do we start terrific service everywhere not just Bavaro. In Bavaro we have known Yina Mercedes for 5 years now and she is fantastic and always makes us so welcome. Miguel Contreras mainly at Travel Club the the main Bavaro lobby bar in the evening is one of the world's special guys, top drawer. There is the one and only Geraldina, Maria Ramirez, Suzanne, Marianna, Anna Maria, Jorge, Jose Luis and many more. They all go out of their way to make everything special everyday.On the beach we have great service from Carlos, Daniel, Digne, Anya, Martines and the man with the biggest smile in RD, Vicente. Thank you.Last but not least is Marlene Nunez the Bavaro Reception Manager, a wonderful person exceptional at her job, always with a nice bright smile and a real asset to the Palladium group. Yes not all staff are good at English but you can still communicate even a 'Por Favor' or 'Gracias' will be appreciated. Dominican people are genuine, smiling and helpful and they will come through for you. Can't wait to go back
