This resort is the best in Punta Cana for sure

This resort never lets us down. This resort is constantly renovating and making sure the resort is modern. The food is always better than expected at all the buffets, al la cartes, and snack bars. The rooms are always sparkling clean and smell fresh. The resort is has the best nightly shows and we continue to see them night after night. The dancers and entertainers have passion and put 100% of their heart and soul into all they do. This resort is great for families and couples. All of the staff greatly appreciate serving customers and they all go out of their way to make sure you are 100 % satisfied. The resort is clean and the landscaping is beautiful. The best part of our vacation is the interaction with the animation teams throughout out the resort. I am planning my next vacation for next year and it will be at the Grand Palladium Palace Resort, Punta Cana. Franklin Wately is the best and he always goes out of his way to make sure all his guests have the best vacation possible. Thank you Franklin.

Fabulous Vacation

Husband and I Stayed at the Palladium Palace from Oct 10-17, and loved every minute! Cannot wait to return next year (or sooner if possible). We were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a wonderful (spacious, spotless, beautiful) suite in villa 93 - close to pools and beach. Service, food, amenities, entertainment were all great. We enjoyed all of the three Palladium resorts that we had access to and managed to try almost all of the different buffets, ala carte restaurants, pools, lobby bars, etc. We never left the Palladium property, except to walk along the beach in each direction (where we found local shops and saw a bit of local culture) . We easily could have stayed two weeks and never left the property. Enjoyed quiet time on the beach and also enjoyed disco, theater and pool activities - the activity team even did special Zumba class at my request! Enjoyed Latin dancing everyday!

Jhony bravo is the best

There is a lot I can truthfully say about this holiday and I will say once I'm off the holiday but for now I would like to give this resort a five star rating based on the staff alone they are truly the back bone behind this hotel and are no way near given enough credit for what they do most of then are badly under paid so as much as u don't need to tip them there tip are probably what feeds there because there wages don't cover there rent so please do tip all staff including the entertainment team I would personally like to say thank to jhony bravo who is in the attached photo for being one of the best on this resort truly made the holiday better thanks mate 👍🏻

It was the best of times, It was the worst of times.

OK lets get the negative out of the way first because to be honest there isnt much but it had a massive impact on my holiday. If you have a specific dietry requirement this isnt the hotel for you. Its not that they dont accomodate you its just that the staff arent particularly educated in the different requirements of certain dietry needs. Being gluten free you check in with the public relations people and they will give you a special dietry card. This costs $10 but is refunded at the end of your holiday if you return the card. Also it allows you to book the al a carte restaurants which normally you cant do. On presenting this card it informs the waiting staff of your requirements but typically they still didnt understand. In the Japanese restaurant this reduced our choice of food down to one starter and one main. They will not accomodate any changes to the menu. I know for a fact that a lot of the dishes wouldnt change much just by removing any gluten containing ingredients but I imagine they mass prepare the food which is understandable given the size of the resort and the number of people staying there. The Buffet is a minefield if you are sensitive to cross contamination consider yourself warned. Enough of that, The resort is quite literally heaven on earth, it is without a doubt the most beautiful place I have been to in the Caribbean. The gardens are immaculate the rooms are of a high standard and the facilities top notch. It is expensive on site, goods in the gift shop are generally 20-30% more expensive than off site. Non domestic beer is $8 a bottle. International brand spirits are for the royal suite guests only, UNLESS you drink in the Hemingway bar. They don't advertise the bar on site much I think we only found reference to it in one place but all international drinks are included. Pay $8 in the sports bar for a Budweiser or free in the hemingway just round the corner. The sports bar is excellent lots of TV's, lots of food, constant drinks , 24 hours a day its a Mans dream. The Bavaro reception is by far the best, bigger than the palladium better seating ,in the middle of all the best restaurants and next to the main El Torro Buffet restaurant which puts the palladium Buffet restaurant to shame. The facilities are excellent lots of pools to choose from both kids and Adults only. Sports facilities are extensive. Lots of entertainment although it doesn't start until quite late. Give the casino a miss I know the odds are not in your favour in any casino but this one they were even less in your favour if you know what I mean. The best restaurant for me , surprisingly , was the Indian. The chicken Biryani was a full on flavour experience very nice indeed. The worst would be the Bamboo (Chinese) the sushi was excellent with caviar but not another single dish on the menu I could eat. There is room service but again not a single dish I could eat. The best food on site for us was down at the beach where every day they cook a big bowl of paella with the freshest prawns you will ever taste. Worst part of the holiday was the food poisoning I picked up from the outback adventure tour but the tour was pretty good. All in all a rollercoaster ride the best place I have ever been Beautiful, fresh , excellent weather , not too many mosquitos, clean rooms , good service , drink and food a plenty , beautiful beaches, lovely swimming pools, great bars , lovely country. Also watch out for the cockroaches biggest bloody beetles I have ever seen. I only saw a couple in the two weeks I was there but they are big and they can shift.

We really enjoy our vacation in GP palace, the resort is so nice and very big, you have a lot of choise and places to go. Our favorite restaurant was the Indian the services is excellent and the peoples are very friendly. We visited Santo Domingo, wich was a very interesting excursion. Stanley was always smailing and very friendly with us from the bar in the Palace Lobby.
