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 Some of the suites are outdated.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.

Huge Resort with a Great Beach

GP Punta Cana Resort & Spa was very good. The room and amenities in the room were good. We did think it was a little hard to get a shower in the shower/jetted tub combo, without getting the floors and tub surround very wet. That is so minor but i feel it did need mentioned as that may bother some people. Everything was clean, service and food were good. There are so many restaurants, we didn't have a chance to try them all. The Tex-Mex and Brazilian were very good. We didn't care for the Tapas / Spanish. We loved the buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. We tried sandwiches and cappuccino machine at the sports bar. We loved the adults only pool. The lounger cushion doubles as a pool float and they had a really nice swim up bar. The nightly entertainment varied and a few different things were going off in different areas of the resort so you have plenty of options. The real highlight of this place is the beach. The sand in the water is so soft it felt like velvet, the water was incredibly clear and warm. You can def. take runs and long walks on the beach. It goes on and on, beautiful white powder sand.

I loved the hotel with all the vegetation and the lobby bar tender Janiel Pena makes the best drinks I've ever had. Everyone needs to try the mohito. I love the hospitality of all the workers and how they treat all guests.

Best Vacation

Have had the absolute best time. Great service, resort is amazing with so much to do, very friendly staff and very clean. Our favorite bartender Janiel Pena at the lobby bar he makes the best mojitos ever and we stop to just see him while he's working. He has made our trip very enjoyable. I would visit this place again. Highly recommended.

Okay place, there is better out there.

I stayed at the Grand Palladium last week with a group for a wedding. We had a fun time, how can you not with a large group of family and friends?! However, I will say that this is not the best resort. The food is mediocre at best, hibachi place is the best you will get. Also, there is only one restaurant that is open 24/7 and it is clear at the end of the resort which isn't ideal to most especially if you have a large group with children. At the buffets, you are lucky if you get any silverwear or water at your table before you come back to sit with your plate. If you get a waiter for assistance it's accompanied by an eyeroll. I'm sorry for asking you to do your job.More importantly, the inconsistency in the drinks was astounding. One bar made a good mojito, the rest made horrible ones. I watched a friend order vodka/soda and get a drink back that had orange juice in it. Ordered a strawberry daq and the pool bartender put tequila in it. This is not the best place for drinks, it takes forever to find one at the bar you are at that actually tastes like what you ordered and is correct. Do not even try to get a drink at the casino, the rudest woman ever and the drink tasted like there was floor cleaner in it!! Mind you, it was a VODKA WATER!Lobby bartenders were friendly, others not so much.Rooms were clean even though we had to wait 40 minutes past check in for our room to be ready. There are plenty of pool options, but the water isn't as refreshing as the ocean.. its warm bath water.It was an okay place, there are way better out there. Would not go back.
