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 Some of the suites are outdated.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 good points:Nice size clean rooms.Beautiful Beautiful beach!!Lots of buffets/restaurants.Nice staff.Staff always asking if you need a drinkCocktails are great.Loads of different pools.Good sports centreGood activities to do during week.Bad pointsMen trying to sell you things every 10 seconds at the beach and even around the pool.they even whistle if your asleep when they walk past to try and get your attention. This really annoyed us as you can't really relax.Everyone expects tips.Every buffet serves exact same things.Keep everything in the safe once the maid left our door open for a whole day! Everything is a bit of a walk.. they have staff that drive some guests about but if you don't tip them they don't pick you up again.Overall I had a nice stay here, just a few things that let it down. I would recommend it for a short stay. The beach is one of the best I have been too. Some tips :I would recommend to specifically ask for a room on the 1st of second floor. The ground floor rooms always seemed to be having leaks and our friends had to move because it got so bad. Also ground floor rooms have 2 separate double beds whereas our room had 1 queen bed. get LOADS of mosquito spray. Bring your own sun creams/anything you think you will need the shop is very expensive.
This is my second time here and a lot has changed since 2011! I am impressed with their renovations of the rooms and lobbies. But I was the most surprised with the transformation of the restaurants. Fantastic job! You must visit the Spa! It is so beautiful and serene.The service was great. There were significantly more people who could communicate in English and had the patience to put up with my broken Spanish compared to the first time we went. We hardly had any issues with the service here.The bartenders: Yrneiri, Rosa, & Eusebio (Travel Club); Freissy & Roniel were so great! They definitely surpassed our expectations and really made our stay MORE enjoyable. The Animacion team (aka POP) were energetic and fun, especially Spaghetti! He was such a gentleman and made us laugh through our entire stay!We are definitely coming back to this resort!
This review is for the fantastic waiter we had during our stay, Mr. Carlos Manuel Reyes. A true gentleman. Carlos treated my family with the utmost respect, he is funny, and served any need of ours. He worked seamlessly with his coworkers to make us and other guests happy. I would be honored to meet this man again and speak with him fluently in our native tongue.
We arrived to the resort and were greeted by the most friendly staff offering their signature drinks while we waited to check in. They offered to safely store our luggage so we could tour the property or thE beach until check-in. Staff could not have been more friendly welcoming or helpful. The pools and Landscape are beautifully maintained. The food is delicious and there are many different options for different tastes. The shows and events they have scheduled are wonderfully entertaining and they offer options for excursions outside of the resort as well. My favorite part was the tiki bar by the beach! Every single person employed at this Resort was 100% accommodating to our every wish down to the housekeepers and janitorial staff. We could not have asked for a better vacation and will definitely be returning to the Grand Palladium again.
The rooms were clean and roomy. Bathroom shower was a slip and fall hazard, every surface smooth granite and impossible to shower without water everywhere. Pools were beautiful and well maintained. Buffets were okay, Japanese restaurant noisy. The hotel handled our large and boisterous group smoothly and made us feel welcome While we were there, we had unusually heavy rains that lead to flooding. You could see infrastructure cracking a bit with leaky roofs in restaurants. About one third of our party ended up with gastrointestinal distress so choose food carefully, limiting fresh produce as this seemed to be a common denominator among those that got sick.
