    Average stay

    First, when we arrived at 3 pm, our hotel room was not ready. Then, asked for wifi, and was told that we could not get access to wifi until we had officially checked in. The food is OK but not that great, the drinks are not good.. my pina colada tasted like pineapple juice! The employees at the front desk and at the pool bar are so mean and look miserable! They should work elsewhere if they don't like their job! Very unpleasant. Then, on our first day, we were harassed to go to another hotel for a presentation, like a timeshare probably.. we told them we did not want to go but they kept on insisting! As for the bedroom, the bed was so hard and uncomfortable and only two small pillows for a king bed, I did not sleep the entire first night. Thank god we were only staying for 3 days! As for the beach, it is very beautiful, but very hard to find fee beach chairs! As for the A la carte restaurants, we only had time to try two, the Bamboo one was not good at all, not authentic thai cuisine at all, better off with the buffet. The Indian restaurant was good on the other hand. I will never go back to that hotel. It should not be rated so high! Not a 4 stars for sure.

    Great time!

    Tuve un gran tiempo con mi increíble esposa en el Grand Palladium Bavaro, República Dominicana We really had a grand time - from day one: warm welcome by very courteous and friendly staff - Massiel (front desk) was so very helpful and polite she ensured our needs were met and surprised us with a token for our anniversary 🤗, Luis (Concierge) from day one was always looking out for us, made sure we had decent excursions (going to the Saona Caribe Island: the water is absolutely magical: check it out!) as well as Ari (driver) a very jovial, smart and entertaining guy, and Rovin (check-in) very polite and welcoming, were first among a list of absolutely fabulous folks we met. Our room #1508 (07/11 - 14/11) was well prepared and clean on arrival (as was expected), we were celebrating my wife's birthday as well as our anniversary all in one and they made it very magical. José Luis is such a wonderful person (travel club rep) ensured we had a blast, very informative, astute, authentic and pleasant. Oooh my! So many awesome people: Wendy, Romonita & Julin (Capricho); Romeo (called him my son lol) and Vidal (thanks for recommending the Saona!); Randal (Bamboo restaurant); Johanna, so pleasant and authentic, a warm smile awaits you as you go for breakfast (La Catedral restaurant); Jancey just a gentle guy and very helpful (La Catedral & La Pasiana restaurants); Fidelin, such a brilliant young man (Kusho & Helios restaurants); Yeison, Manuel, Nina, Catherine and Vladimir - want an awesome coffee, go see Vlad(Travel Club office) - all great people!!! 💯🇩🇴 A todos en el Grand Palladium Bavaro, simplemente queremos decir "gracias por hacer que nuestra estancia muy memorable, agradable y divertida! Nos vemos el próximo año!". ❤🇩🇴🥇 James and Denise 🤗

    The most amazing entertainment team

    The entertainment team starting with Kim, Mini Cooper, 911, Obama and last but not least Mr. Looky Looky were an awesome team and kept us entertained to the max. Lots of fun games like bingo bongo, minigolf, ping pong and others and dancing lessons like bachata and salsa. Also the parties like the foam party were amazing. Thank you for everything my friends. Until the next time we meet, wish you all the best things in the world!

    Thank you Freidi (Piano) and Miltha (Kim) for awesome and unforgettable holidays

    I spent holidays in October with my family in Grand Palladium Bavaro Punta Cana. The hotel is a part of a big and clean resort with a magnificent park. The hotel offers everything you need for maximum comfort. In the hotel is a lot of delicious and diverse food, the beach is excellent, the whole staff is very friendly and obliging and there are a lot of entertainments throughout the whole day. Karaoke is super as well as shows in the theatre and parties in front of the disco and inside of it. Thanks to the Grand Palladium Bavaro’s POP team, especially to Freidi (Piano) and Miltha (Kim), because they made our holidays very special. We’ve never met animators as friendly, full of energy, smiley, and kind as they are. Their games, courses, Zumba, and shows were full of laughter and fun, the kids loved them and we went home with a heavy heart. Please appreciate them because they are unique. We’d love to come back, especially because of Freidi and Miltha.
