Excellent Resort - highly recommend!
Jun 25 2018
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
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.

Also, it was hard to get help from the staff unless I went back to The front desk, because no one spoke English..... that. Evans frustrating at times... they wise the place was beautiful and I loved it

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!

Sexual harassment and Pedofiles!

..my wife was harassed by cooks in the buffet restaurant and my 12 year old daughter was told that she’s beautiful and looked like a stripper! I immediately confronted the guy and spoke with the manager of the kitchen, the restaurant, and the person in charge of food and beverages for the resort, Enrique. None of them did anything to assure me this man was removed from the premises immediately and was never to come back. I wanted something in writing and was told that they can’t do anything but verbally assure me it was handled. I’m sorry, that’s not good enough. My daughter now has to deal with that experience forever. When I booked this place we expected family friendly and safe...It was none of that!!! Aside from that, the rooms are not kid friendly and are not well lit. We had several issues with electricity and AC leaking water. We called for assistance and never received it. Had to lay towels on the ground everyday in the room. When I asked if anything was being done for us on the way out they said no. So, PLEASE AVOID GOING HERE YOUR KIDS WONT BE SAFE!!

KLK mi familia. I visited this absolutely wonderful resort for the 22nd time and it just keeps getting better and better. Arrived June 12 for 2 weeks and as always had an incredible time. For those of you that are repeat visitors to this resort you know how I feel. For those thinking about visiting for the first time you will not be disappointed. Have an open mind, relax and chill. The food, the resort, the weather and more importantly the employees were all fantastico. I was there while the World Cup was going on and met many different nationalities all having a great time and cheering for their countries. As always stayed in 8401 and the maid service was great. This room is close to the Palace pool, the beach and El Bohio restaurante. I went to the new Helios restaurant and it was amazing. Live entertainer, fabulous surf and turf and great atmosphere. Went off the resort to casa de Delvin and also Playa Macao with Sr. Janiel and familia. Had a great time with both my familias. Went to Calderon Mini Market with William, Delvin, Maria, Kenia, Yudelka, Alejandro and Leandro and had a great birthday celebration. As I have mentioned numerous times in my reviews the people are amazing here. A little hola, gracias and por favor go a long way in making your stay enjoyable. I was sad to hear that Leandro Tajes was moving on to manage the hotel in Santo Domingo but I was also happy for him as I am sure that this was a big promotion for him. We will miss him very much. For those of you that read negative reviews be sure to take them with a grain of salt. Some people expect to be pampered and waited on hand and foot. Be polite and respectful and your vacation will be great. Enjoy the slow pace, the warm weather and the wonderful service. I read where people are complaining that the A/C in their room wouldn’t go below 22° C. These are preset to reduce energy consumption and to be more environmentally friendly. The beach is loaded with seaweed which is a naturally occurring event. People complain that other resorts use tractors etc. to remove the sea weed and the Palladium does not. What they don’t see is that the tractors also remove tons of sand from the beach as well. The Palladium uses manual labour to clean their stretch of beach to protect the environment. They have attained many international certifications regarding their handling and care of the environment. Go, have fun, relax, drink, eat, dance, meet new people and enjoy yourselves. Don’t be afraid to talk to someone who doesn’t speak your language. You can have a great time trying to understand each other and learning about each other’s cultures. As always muchas gracias to William, Janiel, Delvin, Clara, Rosa, Ana, Leandro, Sr. Fraguas, Dory, Carmen, Manuel, Mama, Ali, Victor, Roxer, Yndhira, Margarita, Idelin, David and the rest of my amazing Palladium family. See you all in November for trip #23. ROMO COÑO Y ME GUSTA ESA VAINA!!!!! Te amo, Papa.

Awesome Resort!

This was my 6th time to Punta Cana and can say with certainty that the Grand Palladium Palace Resort has been the best resort experience thus far!! There are (3) resorts all together that are part of the entire resort experience. We choose to stay in the Palace Resort which is the smallest of the three which was so nice. The rooms were beautiful, robe and bath slippers provided! Comfortable beds, flat screen TV's and large two sink bathrooms with jetted tub and this was the basic room! The other two resorts on the property are larger and really designed for families and children which is nice if that is what you are looking for. In our case we wanted something that was more relaxed, adult focused without all the screaming kids. The Palace resort has an Adult Only pool which is GREAT and a swim up bar that is open till Midnight! We were there in June (WHICH IS VERY HOT) but had no problem ever finding lounge chairs by the pool and there were 6 of us! The restaurants were all good with the exception of the mexican restaurant (not sure what kind of mexican food this was supposed to be but they missed the mark). Our favorite restaurants were the Japanese restaurant and the Steak house and all the buffets were delicious! What we enjoyed the most was the friendly staff. A big shout out to William the Bartender by the pool and Jose! The Front Desk staff was great and there are nice people everywhere to take you around in golf carts as this resort trio is quite big. You really feel like you are in a town, so much to do and see. Also the walkways are covered with beautiful bamboo roofing meaning no walking in rain or in the hot sun. This was wonderful. The entire resort felt very high end and very clean! Top shelf alcohol as well. This is the first time I have been to a resort in Punta Cana that served Absolut Vodka Nice!! The beach was disappointing but it was not the resorts fault - apparently due to weather changes over the years large amounts of seaweed gather on the beach in June making swimming difficult and frankly the smell was not good eitherso we did not hang out on the beach. I heard it leaves mid-summer so no ocean swimming this time around. There are multiple beach bars and ocean bars as well. We plan to go back to this resort - and recommend Grand Palladium Palace to those looking for a relaxing upscale resort.
