While the resort was beautiful, we were not impressed with the service. We had a room with a sofa bed in the loft and was told upon check-in that they would send a maid to make up the bed since it's where our daughter would be sleeping. Our phones didn't work in the hotel room so we had to walk to the front desk 3 additional times to request that someone come make the bed. No one came until about 10:00 that night. We mentioned multiple times that our phones didn't work, we checked in Saturday and it wasn't until Thursday that they were fixed. We had wanted to order room service but couldn't because of the phones. The air conditioning was working in our room but it always felt stuffy and we did not sleep well because we were too warm. The food was good but the service was poor, especially at the buffets. Numerous times we would wait for silverware and there were times we were never given any napkins even after asking. We have been to numerous all inclusive resorts and this is the first resort we have been at where we felt like we were constantly hounded about buying things or excursions and did not appreciate that. The staff was friendly for the most part but they were not in any hurry if you asked for something. Overall the hotel was clean and beautiful, but I'm not sure we would return due to the poor service.

Excellent Resort - highly recommend!

Grand Palladium Palace is a fabulous upscale resort - less complexes then the other two resorts on site which means it is quieter. The pools at the resort are wonderful. I can't say enough about William and Jose at the pool bar - they were great. Service overall was incredible. The rooms were nice, well appointed with robes and slippers (a first!). I have been to Punta Cana 6+ times and the Palace was by far the nicest. The food was great and the staff was so friendly. The spa treatment was fabulous and we were able to utilize the spa pool for multiple days with our package. Just incredible. My only recommendation would be to have a the 24 hour food option closer to the Palace resort. It is quite a walk if you want something to eat when the restaurants are not open.

Food was substandard. Guidance as to what was available to us was extremely poor. Had to request refill if water second day. Sliding door in room was next to impossible to operate. A woman could never open it. Hot tub shower was very difficult to get in and out of.

Beautiful Resort Little to no English Spoken
MICHAEL B.
Oct 26 2017
Resort was Beautiful. Be prepared for little to know English being spoken. Front Desk did know English however that was about it. We did manage through the week. BE careful what you eat. Meat is undercooked and not kept hot leaving food contaminated. Flies were not noticeable at first but by day 3 we did notice the flies. We did also see mice running outside the buffet. With all that food, I can understand. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, drink the water, not even rinse your toothbrush. They do not treat it. Be careful even if you cut your leg and take shower. Bacteria can enter your body. I was fine all week until the last day. I came down with terrible cramping and uncontrolable bowel movements every 45 minutes for 3 days straight. No sleep and was miserable. Went to Dr. and was placed on strong antiobiotic. They blamed food contamination. Not sure I will go back.

The resort was very clean. I don't have any complaints on the food, but the earlier you get to the buffets, the better. The pools were beautiful & clean. The drinks were great! The room was always clean, the maids were always on top of making sure you had fresh towels. Only recommendation, has to do with how the place was constructed. The showers, Leak everywhere. We had to create a wall of towels around the shower/bath in order to not get our entire room flooded. Also, the doors to the rooms slam, very loudly. Which makes it difficult to sleep past 8am. The beach was also beautiful, I saw reviews before going of people complaining about the sea weed- there was some sea weed. But it's because of the side of the island the resort is located on, and they do try to keep it maintained. The language barrier was frustrating after a couple of days, very few people spoke fluent English. Ordering at the sit-down restaurants and asking specific questions was very difficult. Overall I would recommend this resort; giving it 4/5 stars overall.

This was our first experience booking with Apple Vacations and we were very pleased! There were apple representatives to greet us at our departing and arriving airport as well as at our resort to give us details about Punta Cana and excursion options. Grand Palladium was an excellent resort! We went as a couple, but this might be a resort you would pick to go with family or friends. There weren't too many people who were there just as couples. This isn't something that bothered us, but if it is something that would bother you then you may want to look into a different resort. The buffet's offered good quality food and had many different varieties. My boyfriend is very picky and he was very satisfied with the food options. If you want to eat at a restaurant be sure to get there early as they fill up quick! Make reservations for the japanese restaurant the day you arrive at the resort if you plan on eating there. We were disappointed when we were not able to make a reservation because it books up so quick and we had no idea. One complain I have is about the maid service. We wen't out for dinner one night and when we returned to our room at about 9:30 the room to our door was open. There was a maid inside of our room cleaning. To me this was definitely not ok since there was already a maid in our room earlier in the day to clean our room. I was a little thrown off by this. Also a few times in the morning a maid would knock on our door, barely gave us enough time to wake up, and would just walk in. After that we kept the top lock on our door so that wouldn't happen again. The maids should just be more courteous of people's privacy. The hotel staff and bar staff were excellent and very friendly, especially inside the sports bar. This resort is huge, so definitely plan some time to explore the resort and see all the different options they have to offer. We got lucky because our room was very close to one of the many pools as well as the beach. If you are looking for a fun place to stay that offers good food, excellent service, and a lot to do I would recommend staying here!

Just returned from Grand Palladium and just thought an unbiased view might help some people.Hotel was alright but not as good as the iberostar where we stayed last year.The staff were excellent,very friendly and hospitable but the food was very average.The beach was very good and there was never any shortage of sun beds.The quiet pool was excellent but beds were harder to get because of the usual habit of people putting towels on beds and then not coming at all or using them for an hour all day A la cartes were again only average and whilst you didn't have to book it meant sometimes it was like a football match.Don't get me wrong,i am not saying the hotel is bad but I am saying it is only average The entertainment was again only average but the entertainers worked very hard and did their best.Hemmingway the bar had an excellent cocktail and premium drinks range but the artists were so loud it was impossible to talk.Sports bar was very good and the staff gave you another drink as soon as you got near the bottom,only drawback the toilet was outside and about 50yards.All in all we enjoyed our stay but don't go expecting gourmet food or out and out luxury

Nice experience

Above average resort, older but will maintained. Pools were clean, great and well maintained. Restaurants were clean and had way too much to choose from. If I had any negative comments it would be the showers. They were dated with platform mounted jacuzzis which were difacult to get in and out of for us seniors.

So.. we went in April of 2017. This is a lot late. We went for our daughters graduation gift. The room was very nice. A little odd on the shower.. there isn’t an entire door. So we got the floor wet a lot. But not a big deal. Resort is huge.. but you can easily catch a ride anywhere! Food was great! I can’t say we had a bad meal! The Brazilian you need to have a lot of room in your tummy before you sit down! I have to say we only ate at the buffet one night for dinner and I kinda regret not going more, it was really good! The adults only pool is the spot to be if you don’t have kids with you! (Ours is 18) it’s a good size pool. Deeper. No splashing kids. Adult conversation.. and the bartender there is amazing!! Oh and it’s open until midnight! We didn’t see any shows. Sports bar was nice. Really the only complaint I have.. which I always have with palladium resorts... is someone is always trying to sell you something!! Spa services.. tours.. and the worst.. time shares.. we all know they are available.. shoving them down our throats every time we turn around is unnecessary. And highly annoying!! I’ve been to a lot of other resorts and never get hounded the way we do at palladium resorts.
