Grand Palladium Punta Cana
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
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 Some of the suites are outdated.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.
The trip was through Apple and the price was incredible. The grounds were beautiful. The staff at the resort were incredibly pleasant and helpful. The only criticism is the restaurants filled up early so there were long wait times if you wanted to eat around seven. No reservations were permitted except for the Japanese restaurant. I would still recommend especially through the Groupon offer.
The sports bar here is amazing so if your a sports fan you won't miss any action. The gym here is great as well. I was able to keep up with my workouts while still being away on vacation. The spa here is also very nice and relaxing, the prices are reasonable if your looking to get a couples massage while away. Look out for Guillermo, he's amazing. He helped us with everything. I highly recommend coming here, you'll be able to meet a large variety of people from all over the world.Bon Voyage!!!
First time in thr DR, food is ok but the weather and views are amazing. Best customer service by Guillermo highly suggest speaking to him when you come here, really helpful with everything we needed. We recommend this place for couples trying to get away from their busy life.
Hotel and accommodation was excellent. needs to improve Indian food. It more Spanish than Indian. Workers are very curious and always ready to help. only some staff speaks English. Most of them speak Spanish.
Very well kept resort, beautiful beach, nice people, food a 7 (a la carte is overrated - Indian only restaurant that seemed to cook something you wouldn't see on the buffet)... The bad for me is that I don't think in the end I am the type of person that likes the all inclusive, gated community feel of this type of vacation. The focus was all around drinking and eating, with people trying to constantly sell you things. Whether on the beach or walking around the compound, you were either being sold cigars, an excursion or some type of "travel club" member package. Honestly, after spending roughly CAD 9,000 on this trip for four people, I would have appreciated not constantly being harassed to buy something. At least every 15 minutes on the beach someone was trying to sell me something (I guess it was positive that at least they were sanctioned by the resort to sell on the beach). After awhile, you start to avoid certain spots in the resort where you know you are going to be approached by sales people.This sales experience was also there when going to the Saona island excursion. I know the DR is a tourist based economy, but you actually need to let the tourists get what they actually wanted out of the holiday which is some peace and quiet and downtime. We didn't go to the island to buy a whole bunch of bracelets, cheap sunglasses and long term packages at the Grand Palladium resorts. It was hilarious when we got back from the Saona excursion to the mainland, all these salespeople were waiting right on the point where we disembarked, all ready to sell us more bracelets and cigars... Ugh.In terms of an out of the box tourist experience, my sister did have some things stolen from her room. This quite honestly is the first time that I have ever seen this. While the hotel eventually made things right, it only seemed to get going in the right direction after our travel agent sent two emails... First reaction to the incident was "what do you want us to about it?" Not exactly customer centric. I don't think we ever received a true apology. Saying sorry seems very easy to say, but not in this case...To finish on a positive note, if you like all inclusive holidays, being treated well overall (please use the safe in your room and use a luggage lock), having a very nicely maintained property to appreciate, beautiful beach, nice work out facility, eating and drinking a lot, no issues with dealing with being sold something constantly, this place is for you.My first experience will be my last, but the DR was a nice place to take the test and the Grand Palladium seemed to be one of the better places to try for your first experience.
