AVOID AT ALL COSTS (ESPECIALLY FEMALES)

One of my best friends and I (two females) decided to book a last minute vacation to Punta Cana. We read reviews about the Grand Palladium and decided this looked like a good fit for what we wanted. Grand Palladium is a hotel group known around the world and we wanted to go somewhere reputable, unfortunately our experience was appalling. I have a case open with the tour group we booked through to take action on what has happened as it is one thing after another! We received constant harassment from the male staff who “hissed”, cat called, and tried to flirt with us. They asked for our numbers and Whatsapp countless times (they would not take no for an answer the first time) to go of the resort and “hang out” or “meet up” at a bar called Drink Point which is outside the resort gates - we lost count by the end of the trip at how many times this happened. LADIES BEWARE, when you leave the resort there are no regulations as to how these men can treat you and they will see this as an easy opportunity to do what they can't on the resort. By the end of my trip I was wearing a maxi dress most of the time on the beach because any time I was in a bikini it was drawing more attention from the male workers. One evening at around 11:45pm, we were on the transport train that goes around the resort, the driver pulled over once everyone got off, came to the back where we were sitting, and asked us to come off the resort with him and buy drugs off of him to party. When I reported it to the supervisor he said he would handle it right away or I could file a complaint. I told him I wanted it to be dealt with right away, but no one ever followed up with us. A little over halfway through out trip, we arrived back to our room after being out for the whole day to our room door WIDE OPEN. Anyone was free to enter our room and take our belongings. We called the front desk and no one was able to speak English well enough to understand what we were saying. We decided to go in person and the supervisor dismissed us and didn’t apologize (he was on the phone not listening to us properly). He told us to go to guest services in which the ladies we not very helpful and did not care to hear our concerns through. They made me fill out a complaint form and brought security to our room to make sure nothing was stollen, then checked the door with a device to see that it was working properly. We were give no formal apology by management or even a follow up. I went to the Tappanyaki restaurant and I made it clear about 5 or 6 times that I had a seafood allergy. They did not listen and continued cooking. He ended up using the same utensils from the seafood on the rice I was about to eat, then served it to me! He acted insulted and ticked off when we made a fuss about this. I was infuriated as I had to watch him closely the whole time incase my food would be further contaminated. We went on an excursion and booked it through our travel representative. When we arrived we were harassed by the male workers. I was even being Meowed at one point. When we got to Macao beach, I lost my flip flop and they refused to help me find it unless I gave one of the men my Whatsapp. He was hiding it behind his back and finally gave it to me. Coincidentally our buggy kept stalling after this and it completely broke down at one point. The guide and tour group behind drove past us and left us on a dirt road ALONE in a very poor area until someone from the group behind decided to stop and restart the buggy. We were absolutely terrified and we made it clear that we were incredibly unhappy to the “manager” of the facility, and he really didn’t show any remorse or professionalism. We felt so unsafe and violated the whole time. We felt as though our concerns were totally dismissed and no one wanted to do anything about it. This is totally unacceptable and not only will I never stay here again, but I will be sure to make it known to anyone travelling to Punta Cana to stay anywhere else but here!

Decent Resort- Mediocre Food.

The check in went smoothly and we were able to have our room earlier. Staffs are polite and helpful. Below are our welcome gifts in the villa 60. ° No water for 15 minutes. °Following by a series of no electricity f or 10 minutes each time and three times in a row. No warning, no apologies from the front office. °Lunch at El Arrecife on October7, we ordered coffee and been told no coffee- machine is broken. ° Lunch at Bohio on October8,we ordered coffee and been told no coffee-machine is broken. Incidents may happen beyond control but not having coffee to serve your guests in 5 star resort is rare. This place is overrated. The food is mediocre at buffet and A La Carte resto.La Lola served Osso bucco without 'hollowed bone'. A misleading and insulting for the dish.

Could be a lot better...

We got here Sunday and this is Monday. As such, this would be an interim review... The good things - the buffet, stunning with attentive staff. The bell boys, the groundsmen, the fact that the beach is raked of seaweed and the general upkeep. What needs improvement - at 23:02 sitting at the lobby bar waiting to be served when locals who may be guests come after you and get served before you. Bad practice, poor customer service and makes me think we are not valued. The fact that at 1700 you call the reception desk asking the mini bar is restocked and at 2330 it is still empty suggests bad communication or an "I don't care attitude". 5 stars? I've had better 3 stars. Very disappointing.

We just returned from our Punta Cana vacation and immensely enjoyed our all-inclusive stay at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana resort! It was a great balance of fun & relaxation. Most vacations leave you needing a vacation from your vacation. Our stay here left us with great memories & adequate rest! Not to mention the food and drinks were delicious! I highly recommend trying the restaurants on the resort! Our favorite was the Indian restaurant!
