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 wed 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 didnt 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 dont understand much English. CLEANING: Hotel offers a choice of cleaning times, but these arent 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 wed 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 fianc, friends, and I had! I would highly recommend the Grand Palladium!

Overall, the resort was great. It was very clean and the people were very nice. The only issue I have was trying to get water from the resort. Everyday they gave us two bottles of water but if we asked for another bottle of water they would tell us we had to wait until they restocked our fridge. Also, the food was okay. I couldn't eat the buffet everyday but I loved the steakhouse and Italian restaurant that was on the resort.

Stephanie, the Apple representative at the hotel was SUPER nice and gave great advice for things to do and not to do. I even lost my wallet and she found it and held it for me until I found her. Romni, at check in, was wonderful and extremely polite. He made sure we were happy!

Resort was great. We needed guidance. Front desk OK but English not great. Finally found Apple Rep at another lobby in other part of resort. This was four days into our vacation. Not Impressed. Have always had a rep either waiting for us at arrival or contacting us. When we finally found Stephanie Guerrero she was rude because we missed her meeting. Did not want to help us and said she would not be in the lobby of our resort because there were not enough Apple people at the Punta Cana. Was told to return the day before departure to get our return conformation.

There during Hurricane Matthew but it didn't matter!
Orchid1971, March, United Kingdom
Thu Jan 18 07:07:21 EST 2018
We went here in October 2015 just as Hurricane Matthew was due to arrive. The hotel was fairly quiet when we arrived as it was off season and many of the bungalows had been closed. During our stay though we had people come in who were due to go to Guantanamo Bay but were temporarily relocated due to the hurricane. I have to say this made the hotel quite busy but it wasn't over-occupied and I am therefore not sure how much I would have liked it in peak season as it seemed very busy. There is only one pool and it was crowded but we spent our days on the beach anyway as we preferred it. Some things weren't available due to the weather including a number of the excursions but all in all we thoroughly enjoyed Cuba. The food and the facilities were just what we expected and we had no complaints. We did hear some people complaining but given it was mostly about the steps that had to be taken because of the extreme weather I think they were being unreasonable! I did write this review a year ago but it didn't go on.

Loved it

Just returned from a week with my two kids and my brother and his family. We loved it ❤️we were moved to the 3000 block after arriving to find we were initially booked into brand new rooms they were beautiful but the shower glass is see through from both sides not a good option if you are sharing a room with your teenage kids so we were moved to the 3000 block older rooms but still very nice and steps away from the beach 🏖 steak house was next door as well as one of the big pools the staff at the resort were accommodating and treated us very well, the food was what you expect at most all inclusive resorts very similar to Mexico The beach is the best I’ve been on other than the constant salespeople selling on the whole beach. It’s annoying at first but you have to realize they are just trying to earn a living like the rest of us a simple no thank you and they carry on. Some of the nicest people we met were selling excursions on the beach in fact. The evening entertainment was a little lacklustre compared to some other resorts I’ve stayed at but we enjoyed the live music in the lobbies every night I will definitely return to this resort definitely a great place for families and being single parent I felt safe which is so important in the world we live in today 😉

My first stay in Dominican Republic

From beginning to end, the trip was amazing. From how we were gracefully greeted at the lobby by the bellmen and the receptionist, to the excursion, to on our way back to the US; everything was beautiful. Nothing but good weather, our room was very clean and close to the beach, the lobby, and everything else included. The walks around the resort were beautiful and full of green grass and healthy trees. There were open bars at almost every venue that were very attentive and the service within itself was excellent. The food at the restaurants was delicious and plentiful and the service at the buffets as well as the servers at the pool were excellent. Everything on the resort was beautiful and everyone treated you as family. I definitely plan on coming back.

Very nice resort. Brush up on your Spanish language skills. The staff is very friendly. Lots of walking. Beautiful weather. Lots of resort activities. Bad-- the poolside vendors are aggressive and annoying. Food is good. Beach wedding was incredible, beautiful photos of the wedding. The wedding dinner at the steakhouse was okay..the servers did not seem to know what they were doing. But overall, good.

Great!

I stayed here for my best friends wedding. They are currently working on the resort so some things were closed. This didn’t stop us though! We had a a party of 22 people! The staff is awesome and very friendly! Food was great and there was so many things for us to do! I would definitely come back!
