Our Opinion

The Grand Palladium Punta Cana is another resort that makes up the Grand Palladium Strip in Punta Cana. This is the resort to go to, if you're looking for plenty of food options. There is a plethora of food choices in this resort - it sometimes gets a bit overwhelming. The resort is staffed with incredible staff. There is always someone available to address your needs and concerns. Because this resort is connected with two others, the beach area is very big, making it easy to find loungers. The rooms however, are in need of a huge overhaul. Some of the suites are outdated. However, they are cleaned and re-stocked daily.

Grand Palladium Punta Cana has hundreds of coconut trees, palms and tropical vegetation indigenous to the area. Enjoy the "Stay at One, Play at Three" option where guests can also use the facilities of the Grand Palladium Bavaro and Grand Palladium Palace Resorts.

Location: Beachfront property, 60 minutes from Higuey, 25 minutes from Punta Cana airport.

Our 2 week holiday

From the moment we arrived at this hotel we knew we were going to have a great time. The staff at reception were helpful and efficient at checking us in. The room wasn't as good as some we have had it just needs a freshen up but other than that it was clean and tidy. To be honest we don't spend loads of time in our room on holiday as we are out enjoying the facilities so to us it wasn't a major issue. The food here was top notch, the buffet had everything you could think of and so many things were cooked in front of you so you knew it was fresh. All the Al a Carte restaurants were great we especially liked the Italian,Asian and tapas restaurants. If you get there around 6.30-6.45 the queues aren't massive so you can walk straight in. We tend to eat for 7pm in the UK anyway so this suited us fine. The pools were beautiful. We spent our time at the adult pool as we don't have children and it was so relaxing. The guys that would come round playing music was a lovely touch too. The beach is stunning we spent a couple of days on the beach too. The sea is beautiful and make sure you get up to see the sunrise as it's totally worth it. We got engaged on the beach, my partner had planned a romantic meal one evening and popped the question to was beautiful and something I will treasure forever. If you do one trip make sure it's the cruise to Sonoma island it's paradise and you get to hold starfish in the natural pool. The outback safari is also a great one to see the island and get to purchase coffee, hot chocolate, cigars etc. This for us was a beautiful place to visit and we loved the hotel and will be visiting another grand palladium resort soon .

Great hotel

Great place to stay we never had Issues with the staff, we did however treat them as human beings and not like scum as we witnessed a couple of times ( reap what you sow). We're going back in Jan 2018

I dont usualwrite reviews but i just had to write one for this super hotel. We are 5 days in to our week long holiday and we couldn't be happier. I just don't know why or how people can find reasons to complain. Yes, it's near the airport meaning if travelling with children you are at the hotel in 5minutes!!!a major plus in my book. And yes check in could have been a little more prompt but we were met at the taxi our bags taken from us, a drink and cookie greeted us and while we waited we took turns to wander around. Now on to the major pluses1. The buffet is really great, one of the best we have been to (as buffets go) a great variety and selection every day we especially loved Asian night with the yummy jellies2. The kids club (mini club) super staff, a whole section dedicated to children meaning they are kept away from the general populous by and large and are highly entertained. They have their own pool with slides and pirate ship and even their own snack bar. Daily activities range from face painting to hockey and everything inbetween.The mini disco nightly was a favourite of our daughters 3.The sports bar has a really lovely atmosphere and serves popcorn and crisps or nachos by the bucket load (all included)4. The all inclusive drinks were very good (better than a lot of resorts we have stayed in). Slushies and nestle ice creams were also included which was great when travelling with smallies5. The a la carte restaurants were lovely, my favourite being the Italian. A special word of thanks to the guest relation staff that made our little girl's birthday extra special with a card, balloons, cake and candle as well as a gorgeous heart shaped pizza. The extra details meant the world to herOverall we have had a fabulous time. We rarely talk about wanting to return to a place but this is one place we would definitely come back to and definitely one we would recommend.

Not a 5 Star

Like most people, I usually read reviews on a Resort before booking my Vacation. I also had two friends that visited here, one recommended it and the other did not. Regardless, I decided to go ahead and made the booking.There are four Resorts in this complex, Grand Palladium Punta Cana, Grand Palladium Bavaro, Grand Palladium Palace and Royal Suites. We stayed at Grand Palladium Punta Cana, you can use the facilities for all except Royal Suites. There are many options for restaurants and only the Japanese require reservation, however be prepared to wait anywhere between 30 mins to 90 mins to get seated at the other restaurants. Enjoyed the food at Bhogali ,Steak House, Tapeo and the Bamboo. Did not like the Rodizio, the beef was really undercooked and well done was like rubber, the turkey, chicken susage and flamed pineapple was good, dessert was not to my liking. The buffet provides a good selection and offers plenty of choice.They offered English Tea which I was happy about but could not get a hot cup of water, lukewarm at best. The staff at the buffet tried to help but also appeared to be impersonal, the area also seemed understaffed for the volume of guests.Entertainment at the Theater is the standard fare offered at other Resorts and frankly I am bored by them. Entertainment in the lobby, a live band, is not great either. Good Wi Fi throughout the Resort is a plus.The Beach is amazing, long stretches of beautiful sand ,excellent shade and breezy. The water is a bit on the rough side. The pools were not bad but found myself going to the pool on the Palace Resort.The grounds are very well maintained and provide an opportunity for excellent photography, it is also a very large complex, so if you like walking, which I do, then its great.The whole Resort is very clean, so is the Room, one disappointment to mention, one day the tip for the Maid was gone and the room was not cleaned. In conclusion, on an overall basis I would say we had a pleasant stay. However, this is by no way a 5 star Resort, I would say 3.5 at best.One thing to note, travellers to Punta Cana will need to pay $10 each on entry and $20 each on exit at the Airport.
