I have given this review much thought and deliberation and finally settled on 4/5. Some days could be as low as 2/5 others 5/5. There is no consistency when it comes to service standards at the Grand Palladium which is a shame because there is so much good stuff and hard work clearly visible. The grounds are beautiful as are the beach and lobby areas. My room upon arrival took my breath away (I cried a little with relief) it was perfect! Room 9610. Check in was smooth and seamless - cold towel and friendly welcome. We did however have to ask for directions. Bath is a bit hard to get into and i am 33!! Leaks all round outside and can come into living space if not careful. ❤❤❤ jacuzzi bath!! Room fully equipped with all u will need and out housekeeps were amazing!! 3 resorts in 1 but loved finding my way about and exploring. We spent all of our time at the Adult pool just outside our block. Service is good especially from the pool waiter Gersom! What a legend he is! He never stops!! So attentive a friendly with no expectation of a tip which just made me tip him more!! I wanted to bring him home to work in my pub/restaurant!! My only issue with this pool was levels of cleanliness- does not seem to get the same attention as main pools. Lot of dead insects on pool floor! Some maintenance needed on decking as boards coming loose n nails exposed. Sun beds need a good clean! But more comfortable than main pools. Most importantly no kids!! Can get a bit rowdy when Americans move in and get drunk with these big flasks they all seem to carry!! They seem to think they run the show! One tried to rob my sunbed when I'd gone to lunch! They soon learnt!! ;) especially if they happen to be staying in the Royal suites!! They seem to be under the illusion it is their pool! Wrong!! Staff service is where it falls apart! They simply can not cope when it is busy! No organisation! Considering how many staff they have on at one time it's surprising! We ate mostly in Torrez!! Managerial presence needed! The what I assume are supervisors all in black uniform are pointless!! They don't do any work apart from chastising some staff (publicly) who are working their back sides off!! Roll up you sleeves and help out!! Clear some tables!! Same goes for the pointless girls on the door!! 3 of them! Really? Pick up some glasses instead of standing there gossiping!! Working in the service industry I really wanted to roll up my sleeves myself at times just to show them the way!! At times it was appalling! Al a carte restaurants.... they have no idea about the concept! Service is more dyer than in the buffet!! Japanese is the best! Fab fab fab!! Having said all this the food was of a good standard although not overly hot! I was not ill (stomach) once!! All listed above are small fixes!! In terms of vendors we found if you said no they left you alone! Main ones we encountered were travel cub and spa! They will target you but if your firm they go away and don't bother you! Trips we did through Thompson were Seona Island and outback adventure both awesome and worth the money!! Other key points of this hotel include mini bar in room, great air con and premium spirits! Bombay Gin!! Yum!! All in all a great experience some low points in service but we always make the best of a holiday and that's what we did. Mosquitos huge issue got bitten to death!! Bands pointless, spray from uk pointless the only thing that worked for me was "off" which I bought from onsite shop! Onsite shop appears expensive and is but nothing compared to elsewhere!! Cigs cheap on site tho if you buy a sleeve! Would I return to Dominican? Perhaps not as it's not safe to venture out of complex which we like to do, but I would give Palladium resorts another go! My advice! Keep room Mozzi free, door closed etc Be firm with people selling! Walk if you can don't get the train! So slow! Adult pool is a must!! Ignore royal suit snobs who think they are something special! Don't expect constant high level of service you will be disappointed!! Great holiday Grand Palladium just sort the service out and be more consistent and will be top notch!! Thank you for your hospitality Dave and Lee x

Lots to do in the sunshine!

Room: excellent; variety of menu: excellent; staff attention to detail: excellent Live music in Royal Lobby great for dancing. Look for Secret Pool (adults only). Our room was close to the beach...so amazing to wake up to the sound of the surf.

Brilliant holiday!

Came to this resort for 2 weeks with my boyfriend and we enjoyed every minute of it. All the staff from the bar to the reception were all so welcoming and friendly. Accommodates for all but loved the fact there was an adult pool with a swim up bar. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a sunny relaxing holiday.

Excellente

My husband and I visited the Grand Palladium Palace from January 18 to February 1. This was our third visit to the Palladium. The first two times we stayed in the Bavaro section but chose the palace this year. There have been several upgrades to this resort and it really shows. The rooms are beautiful and up to date, with only one complaint. The bathtub/shower combination is poorly planed and leaks everywhere which could lead to a slipping accident. Also the tub is rather deep to step into and if you are short or have mobility issues it might be a problem. Aside from that everything is great. The fridge is stocked daily with beer and soft drinks. The maids do a fantastic job. The restaurants on the resort are top notch! We enjoyed the Indian, Mexican, and the fish restaurant ( if you aren't a fish lover, don't let that keep you away from this restaurant! They have beef and chicken options too!!). The buffets can be a bit repetitive but there is always something to eat and is alway well prepared . In years past they have had theme nights at the Bavaro buffet, but they don't have them anymore, which is a bit unfortunate. Bringing that feature back would elevate the repetition of the buffets. The newly renovated sports bar is very nice with a good variety of ready made foods or a sit down menu to order from. The lunch buffets were fantastic and close to the beach for convenience. Speaking of the beach it's absolutely beautiful!! We spent every day at the beach. Its easy to get sunbeds in the shade at almost any time of day. Around the pools we did notice the "towel game" going on. The staff at this resort are always very attentive and eager to help. Speaking a few words of Spanish will help but it's not too difficult to make yourself understood. The grounds this resort sit on are absolutely beautiful. The fleet of gardeners that maintain this place need to be recognized for their hard and constant work under the supervision of Juan the gardener manager. If ever you need any assistance at all, look for Cely at the customer relation desk. She speaks excellent English and will do all she can to help. Also I must mention our favorite bartenders at the Bavaro lobby bar, Yessica and Isadora!! Fantastic job ladies!! Also a special mention to Diamodos ( I know I've spelled his name wrong, so sorry) at the sports bar. See you next year!!
