Grand Palladium Palace
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
The Grand Palladium Palace is another resort that makes up the Grand Palladium Strip in Punta Cana. This resort is perfect for both couples and families. Compared to the Bavaro -it's sister resort- it is a bit more luxurious, and offers more options with regards to amenities. The animation team during the day, and the entertainment shows held in the evening are worth checking out. There are plenty of buffet and a la carte food items to choose from. Be advised that this resort does not take reservations, so make sure to visit the restaurant early, as it gets fairly busy. There is a disco in this resort for younger travelers. Great, pleasant and attentive staff.
Location: On Bavaro beach in Punta Cana, 60 minutes from Higuey, 25 minutes from the airport.
Stayed here last week for Spring Recess and really enjoyed it. My thoughts:1. Food- DELICIOUS! A lot of variety at the buffet. Many a la carte restaurants- make a reservation! Did not love the Indian restaurant- would not recommend it. Italian restaurant was delicious and hibachi restaurant was delicious. Hibachi restaurant was LOUD. Definitely a place for family fun and not romance.2. Drinks- Offered both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. They did not skimp on the alcohol either!3. Rooms- We stayed in a loft suite with an ocean view. The bed was not super comfortable but was able to sleep in. Room service is available 11am-11pm (unless you are in Royal Suites which is 24 hours).4. Pools- The family pools have a lot of activities. There is a secret adults only pool that is wonderful if you'd like to be away from little ones.5. Spa- Had a massage on the beach for $65 for 50 minutes. It was a nice massage-nothing spectacular- but still a massage on the beach is pretty darn good! My friend loved the gym and Zentropia spa.6. Beach- Plenty of lounge chairs. Some people selling items move along the beach but security is quick to rid of them if you don't want anything. They don't let anyone bother you.7. Staff- Friendly and helpful.8. WiFi- Not great, Sometimes only worked in the lobby, if I could connect at all. 9. Entertainment- Live band one afternoon on the beach was great! Only saw one show at the theater and it was not great. The performers were lip syncing and doing hip hop dancing. I was disappointed that they were lip syncing. It was almost like a high school talent show.10. Getting around- There is a shuttle that looks like a train that can drive you around the resort. It is slow but a nice ride if you are looking to see the rest of the resort.11. Housekeeping- Our room was well taken care of everyday. Refrigerator was also stocked daily with water, soda and beer.Overall, a great place! You won't regret your stay here!
I would recommend this resort to EVERYONE I know. It is beyond perfect and the service is beyond me. The restaurants are amazing, the beaches are beautiful & the nightlife is great. The excursions are a MUST! book your excursions with andres through island sun! I will always return to this resort, nothing compares, they treat you like royalty! ❤️😍😍😍
The hotel experience was great and the service was amazing. I will recommend this hotel to anyone that visits punta Cana. The food is great and the quality is amazing. Overall the place isn't great and I plan on returning next year. The bell boy delves was great to me and my girlfriend. Thanks for everything. 🌴🌴🌴🌴🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴🇩🇴😍😍
When my friend and I checked in to the grand palladium palace resort, spa & casino and the bell boy named Rapheal, took us to our room and we saw that it was only a queen size bed. My friend got upset and Rapheal told her no worries I will handle it and it got on the phone and talk to the front desk, told us to wait there in the room while he go get the key to an double bed suite. We thought that was so sweet of him going the extra miles for us. He would assist us back and forth with transportation when he worked also. The front desk representatives by the names of Yudid, Cely, and Cindy were always nice,pleasant and very helpful in explaining information to us. William the bartender at the pool was nice, funny and made the best long island drinks. I would definitely come back and recommmend others to come. The Japanese restaurant was phenomenon. I enjoyed going to the buffet for breakfast every morning.
I am writing this one again because someone seems to have censored my last review.I had a terrible time, I am not going back to the Grand Palladium Palace, not even for free.The GoodAt the beachEverything is included (except premium drinks and lobster)BreakfastThe BadThe All-inclusive experience is subpar -cannot book restaurants in advance and when you go there on a first come first serve basis, the good ones are full.The beach is a nightmare, full of street vendors that are allowed there because they have an arrangement with hotels and local authorities.Everyone is trying to sell you stuff and expect tips and money for everything.Do yourself a favor and spend your money somewhere else. Go to the Mayan Riviera instead.
