A Wonderful Week in Punta Cana

We were not informed that there would be no elevator to the third floor. Entertainment was limited to band on some nights in the hotel reception area. It is a high step to get into the tub (a problem for some elderly folks.) The television set worked very poorly; we finally gave up on it. Having said all that, it the good outweighed those drawbacks.

The only issue we had was when leaving the hotel for the airport. We were told our shuttle would be there at 4:30am. The shuttle never arrived and we had to take a cab to the airport. While the expense was minimal ($40.00), the shuttle was part of our overall package. Other than that - the trip was great.

We would highly recommend a stay at the Grand Palladium! Apple really has their act down when it comes to transportation to and from airport and guest check in and check out. Top notch! Made our vacation even more laid back and relaxing. Thanks Apple!

the ac didn't work well in our room. the hotel conplex lost water 3 days in a row -each day was a differnet section. The buffets had no variety every meal was the same food selection every day. it was disappointing. but on the upside the staff and hotel and staff at apple guest services were amazing. we had some issues and whenever we approached them it was handled quickly, effeciently, and professionllly.

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.

ups and downs

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.

Nice resort

We had a great time at this resort. The Ala Carte restaurants were very good, we liked that you didn’t need reservations. The buffets were good, however, most times we had to repeatedly ask for beverages. The employees at guest services were great! The only con that I can think of is the TRS (timeshare) employees were relentless! We tried avoiding the lobby, even the bar and music, so that we wouldn’t be bothered. Each and every time we walked through, there they were! All in all, it was a great trip! We love Punta Cana.

Just retuned to this resort.

Been to the Grand Palladium 2013, 2014, 2015 & 2016. Resort was good and we enjoyed our stay. Decided to try other places in Dominican and Mexico. This year end of Feburary 2019 we decided to come back. The resort had been updated. Rooms were improved, pools were redone, resturants basically the same and very good. The only negative point with our stay was asked to join the Palladium Travel Club. This was another way of asking to join a time share. Not interested. A little high pressure sales pitch and all kinds of deals offering discounts to join. Especially when we asked if this was a time share....."no no no it's a travel club".

We just got back from a five-night stay. Beautiful beach, large, beautifully landscaped property. Many restaurant options, great pools with swim up bar + entertainment. A vacation of a lifetime. Fun, friendly, engaging staff.

Everything was excellent, I found just confusing names of restaurants in whole complex it would be more easier to find them just with title:Mexican, BBQ restaurant...and management of hotel should invest into english courses for staff which is in main contact with hosts

My first time in DR. I was there 5 years ago and just getting around to doing a review now. Sorry folks! A little late, but I have read a lot of the reviews and it's still a great resort to go to. The people are very friendly and are there with smiles on their faces. I went with friends and it was a great time! They have been going to the same resort for years, so I know it must be a great place to go. The food was delish and if you have any allergies or diet restrictions they will go above and beyond to help you. The beaches are pristine. Rooms are very nice and clean. Day and night entertainment was a lot of fun.
