We went again tu this hotel and as usual it was just perfect, nothing to complain about. The site is amazing! The staff are like a family, they are always happy, friendly and they will do everything they can to make sure that you are having good time. Special thanks to some employees: Ismael at the Royal restaurant, Carlos Manuel bartender at the Palace and Punta Cana..he is always smiling! Clara, Janiel and William at the pool bar to name only them....but all the staff is amazing and this is one of the reason we are returning to this hotel. Thanks also to Kerlyn at the guest service...he is a really nice guy and he will do everything to accomodate the guests. Rooms are always clean, nothing to complain about! We had another great trip to this hotel and we are hoping to go back soon! Thanks to all the employees because you are the one who make the difference.

We are just back from Grand Palladium Palace, overall a great time. We have a 10 month old baby and quickly learned that our standards have adjusted now that we're no longer travelling as a couple. A few notes :
Service was adequate overall. Lunchtime is chaos with too few servers and only one restaurant open for lunch. By halfway through the week we gave up asking for a high chair. At every meal we would ask at min twice for one and often three times, and sometimes there was none at all. We ended up keeping our baby in his stroller to eat for the week. Even with a high chair be prepared to spoon feed your child as there's no trays and our baby couldn't reach the table height. With the exception of a handful of friendly and amazing staff we found in various locations, many seemed unhelpful or not interested.
The resort overall is quite dated which kept this from being a fully luxurious home away from home. I found the Bavaro side to be more lush and modern looking. However the plus of the Palace side is that it's less than a 5 min walk from beach to lobby, with the pool in between so it has a very small resort feel which is great --- but you can walk 10 mins through the other resorts and it's like a tropical village all for you. We enjoyed morning walks and trips down to the sports bar. The beach is very crowded but we always found shade. The pool chairs get reserved by 7am with nobody in sight. The one time I joined the ignorant people and reserved some chairs for our last day (needing shade for our infant) we had some towels stolen. Thankfully the towel guys didn't mind and gave us more. I'd like to see more regulations be in place for chair reserving since it was a real pain.
The deluxe room was tiny and dated with the exception of the flat screen TV. The air conditioning was not adjustable and we were warm most nights, our baby was humid and sweaty and awoke regularly because of this. The jacuzzi tub takes up valuable space but I'm sure would be a nice feature for couples not families. No elevators so be prepared to carry your stroller upstairs. We had to ask three different staff before we managed to get a crib despite requesting one months in advance through our travel agency. Families should book loft suites without question.
Overall we made the best of it and had a great week. We all ate well, food was mostly delicious, our baby ate well and was treated wonderfully by staff. We appreciated them willing to provide him with warmed bottles of milk. Next time I will look for a resort with more amenities that could have made life easier with a baby such as room service, elevators, high quality restaurant service, better infant accommodation (crib instead of pack n play) some daytime entertainment (we never saw anything going on for adults or kids except some dancing at the pool late day) and larger rooms with proper air conditioning and better window coverings. The sun rises early and we would have liked to darken the room to keep the little one asleep longer .
For anyone without these expectations this is absolutely the best bang for your buck in Punta Cana as its priced well and as a couple it likely would have met all of our needs easily.
