Good but not great

The 1st two days our ac didn’t work & they acted like we were crazy. Went to workers, front desk & Apple person!!! Guessing others complained bc on 3rd day they dug up the floor & was fixed. We were suppose to have 2 beds but only had 1 king which we let slide since ac wasn’t working!!! Then we had trouble just getting wash clothes & towels. Was told to come back later....but then entertainment was awesome!! The workers at the pool went above & beyond making all feel welcome!!!

The beach is AMAZING, and the resort itself has a number of pools that are all well maintained and have nice features like plenty of shade and hammocks. The adults pool was our favorite, since it did not have loud kids, had comfy chairs, and had daybeds as well. The food was the only downside, but you can only expect so much from an all inclusive. There was no local food whatsoever which was a bummer, and the buffets were mediocre. The only positive when it came to food was that the a la carte dinners were much better. Overall I would not do it again, but the positives of the resort and beach make up for the mediocre food. Check in was also a hassle, but all other aspects of the room were above expectations.

The first three days of my vacation were a wash. We booked and paid for a sea view jr suite at the grand palladium punta cana. We were given a no view room several buildings back from the beach facing a road. it was impossible to track down the on site apple rep I wasted three days trying to get it rectified and in the end I had to sign a waiver saying I wouldn't write a bad review for palladium to get my room changed to something remotely close to a sea view. I will tell everyone I know not to use apple and just to steer clear of the D.R. all together.

I see Expedia rating is 3.6 out of 5. About right. RESERVATION: We reserved 4 rooms, but two were allegedly unavailable in our price range, so we had to pay extra to get what we’d already paid for. ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF CHAIRS: There were plenty at the beach under umbrella trees, as well as at the pool. If you wanted a pool towel, you needed to get there before noon (or wait). BEACH: Atlantic with waves; no debris. TENNIS AVAILABILITY: Courts “for Club members only” are fine, but 3 courts for non-VIPs in poor shape: surface worn, parts peeing, fence too low, no lights. FOOD: Huge, but buffet food was often not hot. Restaurants closed without warning. They ran out of what should be staples, like passion fruit. Even fish cooked to order was tough. Coffee didn’t meet expectations, except in lobby bar. Overall, the food was mediocre. BARS: Plentiful ICE: Not always available. MINI-BAR: Re-stocked in morning, so if you sleep late, you may have to wait; fridges varied in temperature. NON-HARRASSMENT: Hotel rents space to vendors, and others prowl the beach, not to mention time-share and spa employees bothering people. Teen girls in our party detoured to avoid aggressive jewely salesmen. TV STATIONS: A large number in many languages, but not that many US. WI-FI: Spotty QUIET: The pools had the usual annoying music. Beach-goers could avoid noise. Rooms were especially quiet. STAFF: They seem to enjoy helping guests, though many don’t understand much English. CLEANING: Hotel offers a choice of cleaning times, but these aren’t honored. Some days we were cleaned in the morning, some we needed to ask the maid to do us next. GROUNDS: Nice like most resorts.. ROOM: Poorly designed. Impossible to turn on shower or Jacuzzi (in same unit) without climbing in. Rooms with 2 beds had frosted glass walls, so bathroom privacy impossible. TRANSPORTATION: A huge resort, with trams frequently circling. There are speed-bumps in their roads; what does this say about how their drives are supervised? (and they can trip you up at night) ELECTRICITY: Could shut off for short periods. WRISTBANDS: Required, apparently to keep guests out of the VIP area.. CASINO: We won on slots on our only visit I see Expedia rating is 3.6 out of 5. About right. RESERVATION: We reserved 4 rooms, but two were allegedly unavailable in our price range, so we had to pay extra to get what we’d already paid for. ADEQUATE SUPPLY OF CHAIRS: There were plenty at the beach under umbrella trees,

I was told there would be a rep at our hotel everyday... There was not. In fact, I only saw one, the day we got there. It was very disappointing. I had questions about excursions, but I was not ale to ask them due to no rep. I was told to look for the blue shirt with flowers, there was not an a rep present. I also feel like I should have been warned about the lack of people who spoke English. This would have been nice to know. Had I known that English was not valued here, I would have picked a different resort/destination. Over all my vacation was fine, the resort was very nice, the staff (even though they could not understand me) tried very hard to get me what we wanted. My disappointment is not with the resort, it's with Apple.

There was way too much trash around the pools, and the hotel. My room A.C. didn't work. Was moved to a second room... not better, but had a working fan. The beds were lumpy and rutted. The first room had a jacuzzi tub, with a shower head. The water goes EVERYWHERE in the bathroom, so having to mop up after a shower. The beach is small, it was never cleaned of similar trash left behind, nor cleaned of ocean "junk" after high tide. There were vendors onsite constantly pushing their trinkets. As well - the hotel vacation club kept trying to push us into a meeting where they would try to sell us a timeshare. When all you want is to be left to have a quiet vacation, this is an unacceptable annoyance. I will not go back to this place. I have friends who've stayed in other places not far from this location, with very different experiences.

The Grand Palladium Resort and Spa was beautiful. It was my understanding that it was newly renovated. I thought the hotels was very clean and the staff were extremely kind. I loved everything about the hotel and the experience my fiancé, friends, and I had! I would highly recommend the Grand Palladium!

I would like to start this review thanking Juana Croussett De La Cruz, she works at Guest Services at the Gran Palladium Punta Cana. I left behind my carry on bag, and was at the airport when I found out. I called the Gran Palaldium Bavaro which was where I stayed and was told tehre was no luggage in the room I had vacated. I met Juana and had her information so I contacted her, she did everything in her power to locate my carry on, she called everywhere and finally found out security had it. She called me back and forth to ensure I got my luggage back. She is the best! I also would like to point out the bellboys from the Travel Club (Uiany - Victor), Juan and Miguel, as well as the bellboys from the Bavaro, Juan Carlos, Luis and Francisco...These boys make sure your stay at these resorts are worth it!

We are currently staying in the Grand Palladian Resort and Spa in Punta Cana and I have to say we are not happy at all. We are only 4 days into an 11 day holiday and my 15 year old daughter has spent all night with sickness and diarrhea. We are well traveled visiting Lanzarote, Florida, Tenerife and Bardados in the last18 months and never having a problem. We have kept well hydrated from bottled water only but the food is very poor. Everything is cold and or visit to the so called A Last Carte steak house last night served us potatoes wedges and instant mash potatie when we ordered fries. The food is very poor quality and we have only twice in 4 days had hand gel given to us when entering the restaurants.

BEWARE STAFF

* Very high language barrier, many staff do not speak english so it helps to learn a few helpful spanish phrases. BAR : Bar tenders are extremely nice, however some are too nice. Beware of bar tenders in the Punta Cana Lobby, Francisco especially, as he has tried to feed our group extra shots and overly packed mixed drinks in hopes of getting us drunk. Yes that sounds good, but he has also tried to take advantage of us, leading the most drunk of the group to the washroom repeatedly, even after being turned down. He pursued for more than one day and would not take no for an answer. Other workers will holler and whistle just as we’d walk the grounds. RESORT : All three: Punta Cana, Bávaro, and Palace are connected, making the grounds extremely large and hard to maneuver. Luckily there are gold carts which break at designated stops to help you get to where you need to be. BEACH : In order to get into the ocean, there’s a large wall of seaweed you must pass. Cranes were shown to be cleaning up the seaweed, however it didn’t make much of a difference and our group avoided the beach as a result. ROOM : With four of us to a room, the loft rooms were stunning, you receive what’s shown in the picture - the couch on the upper level opened up into a bed, but the washroom wasn’t complete with a shower. The shower on the lower level had a frosted glass door which wasn’t ideal as we saw everything that happened behind, giving us all close to no privacy. FOOD : Food is lacklustre, have had tastier at other punta cana resorts. The free in service dining that comes in the all inclusive is extremely convenient as it operates from 11am-11pm. The themed restaurants are good, besides the long wait. Highly recommend the Indian and Steakhouse.

If you want to go somewhere where 2 weeks feels like 2 months (in a good way) then this is where you want to be. The people, the service, the beaches, the sun, the food, the drinks (Miami Vice/Pina Colada mmm) - everything is included felt super spoiled. We were treated like queens (kings) and nothing was too difficult for the staff to do. Ive stayed in many resorts and I have to say this was by far the best! We felt like VIPs all through our holiday. If you want all inclusive, then this is the place to go!
