I can't say enough about this resort. The grounds are impeccable, the staff always friendly and smiling, especially at Hemmingways. With the number of resorts on one property you had plenty of choices for buffets, pools, lounges, a la cartes and accessibility to the beach. A bit of a walk to see the entire property but always the option of shuttles. We stayed in building 66 and it was a 20 second walk to the pool and buffet. Not so close that there was any noise as well. Being that close to the buffet, pool and walk/swim up bar was perfect for us. 5 minutes to the beach. A la cartes, well they are decorated very nice, very modern decor. Loved the change from eating buffets each day. Of the four we tried, Japanese, Tapas, Indian and Asian they were all very good. The only complaint, and a big one, there is no reservation system so to speak. You are required to stand in line at 5 pm each evening and then make a reservation for later that evening. Not the end of the world but when you are making a reservation for a restaurant on the other end of the property it is frustrating. As well, we had a bad experience at the Brazilian, even after standing in line they refused to seat us after ensuring we had seats. Royal Suites have no trouble getting in at any time of evening. Their POP (People of Palladium) staff, lol man what a hoot they are. I highly recommend this resort, beautiful and relaxing. More>

A little bit of paradise

A very large resort. Can also use facilities at the Bavaro and Punta Cana. Buggies and trains to get you round. A very relaxing holiday but plenty to do if you wanted it. Staff very friendly and helpful. In fact,could not do enough! Rooms lovely and spacious. Jacuzzi and separate shower! Everything you could want! Telly, radio/sound system, hairdryer, kettle,even iron and board lol! Home from home! Mini bar restocked daily...free! Lovely beach. Always sun beds. Beautiful walk. Never struggled to get beds by pool either, but need to work out where sun will be most, due to amount of palm trees. Staff at pool bar faultless! Buffet restaurants adequate. As per all allinc hols, very repetitive but of a high standard and could never go hungary! Never tried the other restaurants as always seemed huge queues and as stated earlier, the buffet were fine! The evening shows were good. The later one of a higher standard, but enjoyed them all. Unfortunately on a weekly turnover so if there for 2 weeks, spread them out! Or see them twice! Sports bar not really orientated for the English, but still ok to go to. Staff friendly enough. The acts in the lobby bars very good and varied. Just what you need for a relaxing drink. Tipping will get you better service, not just on the night either! The staff have amazing memories! But you do not need to tip every time. Unless you want to of course. And it does not need to be alot. Really don't have a bad word to say. If you want a lovely relaxing holiday, or an energetic fun one. If you want to be spoilt, and waited on hand and foot! A little bit of paradise maybe!? Then this is the place for you. Would definitely go again. Thankyou Grand Palladium. More>

Lovely holiday but the size of a mini town

We enjoyed a wonderful two week holiday at the Grand Palladium Palace Resort, we had a lovely room, the bed was big and comfy (albeit the pillows were a bit flat), sufficient storage space, TV, safe, restocked mini bar, iron & ironing board. The bathroom had a good shower and Jacuzzi bath. Everything was clean, the decor was fine. What sets the Grand Palladium Palace Resort apart from other hotel complexes is the size, it is enormous. For one thing there are three very large reception lobbys, Grand Palladium Bávaro, Grand Palladium Punta Cana and Grand Palladium Palace, it’s a good idea to ask the rep/transfer driver when you arrive which lobby they will pick you up from when you leave (it can be a long walk from one lobby to another if you get it wrong). There are ‘you are here’ maps throughout the complex, if you get lost look for a walkway with a thatched roof, they always have maps and lead you to places of interest, e.g. lobby’s, pools, the beach, restaurants etc. There is a mini train and regular transport to take you round the complex if you don’t like to walk. The food in the buffet restaurants were good, ok a bit samey, but plenty of choice, on entering the restaurants you are greeted with a smile and a dab of hand sanitizer (an excellent idea) they offer many different cuisines, we enjoyed the Italian section where they would make up differing pasta dishes of your choice while you wait. If you are based in Bávaro, you may need to take a cardigan (for breakfast) as the buffet restaurant is cold due to the air conditioning. There are eight al a carte restaurants; we loved the theatre of the Japanese, the Chinese and Italian were very good, we was not so keen on the Mexican or Tapas, but that was personal choice there wasn’t anything wrong with the food. You cannot reserve a table, if they are full you are given a paging device so that you can go off and enjoy a drink and they call you when a tables free. Men do not have to wear long trousers, smart shorts will suffice, my hubby took two pair of trousers that never left the suitcase. The beach is long and sandy white, the sea being the Atlantic always has a tidal wave so it is not good for snorkelling from the beach but great for wave bopping. Go down to the beach at about 7am to see a beautiful sunrise. There are four pools, each different from the other, (one which is great for kids has a pirate ship), plenty of sunbeds but could do with more thatched brollies. All the ground are kept well maintained, they have an abundance for bird life that seemed to live around the complex, which was nice to see. More>

This place is beautiful. Very good service from all staff.Reps on site excellent. Rooms spotlessly clean. Our room overlooked the beach and was lovely.pools and bars were great. That's where it ends because the food let's this place down badly! We are not fussy eaters but the buffet restaurant, although bright and clean with excellent staff, served the exact same food every day! There was no variety or change in the menu at all. There were several other speciality restaurants on site but it was on first come first served basis so unless you wanted to eat when they opened at 6pm then there was no chance of getting a table.only the people in the royal suites and timeshare section were allowed to book over the phone so they were full every night and we never managed to get in.The once a week bar b q on the beach was a nice change the first week but the second time we went the meat was so tough I couldn't even cut it.The lunchtime restaurant food was usually cold and bland and often a queue to get in. It's just not big enough for the size of the complex. drinks were all local with no named brands on offer except in the sports bar where they charged $7 for a bottle of corona! I would not rate this place as 5 star and would not go back because we don't like to eat the same food every single night of our holiday. If they changed the restaurant system and changed the menus then it would make a big difference but it is a shame this does let it down badly More>

We had a beach front room, with King size bed , jacuzzi tub. Very clean, lots of towels, soap,, TP, water provided daily. Tv reception was not very good, but we were not really there to watch TV. free WiFi, intermittent but usually pretty good. Could use my iPad down by the pool.I would like to acknowledge a few of the staff- Pamela ( pool), William (bartender from palace pool bar- excellent), Delores from Palace pool bar and lobby bar, Rene, Francis and Hector ( lobby Bar- very friendly and when we would show up our drinks were there- great service.), Alix ( breakfast & dinner buffet- very funny and friendly- again great service) and Sonia( breakfast buffet and lunch buffet-always with a beautiful smile) More>
