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 Some of the suites are outdated.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.


Overview
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.

Beautiful resort, food not so desirable

We had a group of 19 celebrating our kids graduations and found the resort to be beautiful and the entertainment staff Spaghetti and Denby were off the chain getting our group involved in activities each day to make the trip more memorable! They went above and beyond making the graduates feel special by throwing them a foam party and getting them up on stage! The food at the resort was less to be desirable! If I come here again the Japanese Hibachi, Chinese and Mexican restaurants were the best! I would sign up for those restaurants several times and forget the others! I was also surprised no seafood restaurants especially being near the ocean! I just wish cold foods were cold and hot foods to be hot! I had seen cockroaches around the food areas in the buffet and seen ants on the bagel sandwiches in the Spas Healthy food shop! The Zentropia Spa was fabulous I ended up having two massages throughout the week plus a facial and exfoliation done and was in heaven! I wish there was more reasonably priced souvenirs and more items to choose from to take back to the family! Overall a great trip, met a lot of fabulous people and a lot of hard working people on the resort! We had a favorite golf club driver Jaime that went over and beyond making sure we got to where we needed to be and his personality was so funny!

Great experience

I visited the hotel with a group of friends for three days. The conditions of the room were very good. The restaurants have a wide variety of food and drinks to offer. Great experience! We would be visiting this hotel again soon! 5 stars experience

Something for everyone.

Grand Palladium Royal is like a huge cruise ship on land. Inside of the gate there are 5 hotels. The grounds are beautiful! Bavaro is the "Motel Six" low budget and family style and the top hotel is The Royal Suites. The Suites are very nice. We stayed in the Suites. (Unfortunately people can use the whole property. It makes for some people watching!) Our trip got better each day as we learned the lay of the land. You discover that if you stay at the "adult" pools and on the "adult" beach it's more relaxed and far more upscale. The staff is nice when you are nice. No one was over the top. A dollar or small tip goes a long way. We enjoyed the French and Indian restaurants the most. Everyone raves about the Japanese. I would pass. The best thing is the Chef at the Royal Pool making fresh grilled hamburgers and chicken at lunch time. Breakfast is a buffet and just ok. I love my water and coffee. They do not rush. 45 minutes to get a cup of coffee? No water? You do not go here for the food. Again it is like a cruise. Lot's of volume. If you like booze and people watching its a hit. Also with the all inclusive some of the people are crude at times. We found that you could get a great coffee in the lobby or at the pool and they do put out a lite breakfast by the adult pool. They are very generous with bottle water at the pool too. I met a gentleman named Tony at the first shop, on the right of the adult beach. He helped me get all the goodies I wanted to take home as presents. Pay 1/3 to 1/2 of what they ask. Our suite was to have bottles of liquor in the room. We had 0 for all 7 days. We were questioned at check out about the missing booze. Again hit or miss. We had no bottled water the first 24 hrs. You cannot drink the tap water. We had a "butler" but they did not do anything for the most part. Nice people but no extra care. We also lost power one day. It was out for an hour or so all through the resort. Our coffee pot leaked all over the dresser. No replacement. The shower did not drain well. The bath tub, which is in the bedroom, grimy. The beach and water are beautiful. The coral is dead. No need to pay to dive. The beach is crowded. People grab chairs at the beach and pool and never show up. There is certainly something for everyone. Be sure to bring a big Yeti cup to use while you are here! All in all it is a nice place.

Be careful upset stomachs

A beautiful large complex.. pools, beach are lovely... drinks are not real cocktails. They are made with slushy ice... no real fruit..Food looks lovely, but whilst we were there us and many other holiday makers were complaining of bad stomachs due to very uncooked chicken. Food not hot enough. And cold food at room tempertures.. The shop is rubbish and very expensive. So make sure you take all the things you need. If you tip staff your get treated better, and with our experience some of staff including management are very rude. A big shout out to thomson reps doing a great job at this resort. I would not return . There are nicer places to visit for this money.
