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 Some of the suites are outdated.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 only saving grace for this hotel is that it's clean. The buffet food at the hotel is not good, the staff are friendly but have to about 3 times before they bring you anything; one person comes with hot water, another with a teabag and another with milk - for a single cup of tea - by the time the milk arrives the water has gone cold!Not grand at all!!
Grounds and pool were spotless, however our room was ok at best. The bathroom set up wasn't the greatest, very tiny, dark and moldy. Felt third world not 4 star. The spa was fabulous and there were lots of activities. The beach and water weren't great when we were there in January, couldn't swim there safely. The food was hit or miss, the buffet was and most restaurants were decent. If you are picky when it comes to meat, this might not be the place for you. If you like to sleep in, you might miss the main buffet breakfast as it ends at 10am.Inconsistent service, we ordered room service and I'd run out of small American bills so I did my best to tip fairly in pesos. The server gave me a dirty look and stormed out of our room, told me I could shut the door!Swim up bar service was ok at best, front desk service was friendly but gave us confusing information. The staff either looked really happy or really grumpy and behaved accordingly. Every time we went to the lobby we had to walk by the jewelry table where we were aggressively accosted to buy items we didn't want. We simply wanted to be peaceful and go about our evening without being shouted at and given angry vibes when we ignored them.Our last night there we had dinner and I went to use the bathroom. There was heavy fencing lattice under the bathroom sinks that was unsecured, because while I was waiting in line for an available stall, it tipped over and slammed down on my foot!I could barely walk on it after and had a nasty purple goose egg on my foot. When we reported it to management, they apologized casually and couldn't wait to make me sign a waiver that would release them of liability.
Beach and bars were amazing. Sadly I have celiaki so I didn't have much for breakfast, only eggs. But overall a great experience when not in the hotel room. You definitely need to visit the Japanese restaurant, amazing experience and good food!Only poor thing was the toilet with poor water pressure and a pressing urine smell from the toilet in the mornings.
I have been to the Dominican Republic twice now and have visited this hotel and used their pools, bars restaurants, lounges and beach. The lobby is very clean and we enjoyed the nightly entertainment. We found that there was always lots to do if you wanted and the grounds were beautifully kept and a pleasure to walk through from one resort to the other. I noticed on a number of different locations the staff work morning one place and evening another. Seemed like the cleaning was taken care of by everyone in green working together between the other three sister resorts on the beach and through out the grounds. Really enjoyed the foam party I had never been in one of those before. You can't breathe in the foam and they really would blast it at you. I choked on it a couple times and joked with my husbands about bringing a mask and snorkel for the next foam party.We enjoyed eating at El Bohio beach buffet with our friends. Marcella is the Best Hostess and as soon as she saw us she would wave us in with a huge smile and seat us quickly serving everyone with a house wine and even managed to get me a screwdriver . Looking forward to returning soon and seeing you Marcella. Always plenty of different meat, fish, pasta and variety of selections of fruit, veggies and salad. This is Our favourite places to eat for lunch. The guys at the bar were very friendly. Really enjoy that they have bars located throughout the beach so while your walking you can refill your cup (I bring my own insulated refillable one from home). There are plenty of chairs and the beach is long and I just Love to walk it a few times a day. There are a few vendors selling glasses, get your picture with a monkey or parrots, or coco bongo tickets and the spa trying to sell you a massage a quick no thanks and they are on there way, but the ones just down to the right just after the Royal Suites section are definitely a different story.You have to get up and go down to the Beach to see the sunrise and bring your camera too. It is absolutely stunning and makes beautiful memories. I Love this resort and will visit it again in the very near future.
Great spacious room with a loft. Room service was timely. Staff was awesome. Location was very nice. Not a good idea to leave the resort on your own. Excursions were as advertised (pay cash if you can). Credit card was compromised by excursion worker. Food was great. Variety and better than average buffets. Small tips as you go, goes along way. We plan on retuning.
