Beautiful Resort Little to no English Spoken
Oct 26 2017
Resort was Beautiful. Be prepared for little to know English being spoken. Front Desk did know English however that was about it. We did manage through the week. BE careful what you eat. Meat is undercooked and not kept hot leaving food contaminated. Flies were not noticeable at first but by day 3 we did notice the flies. We did also see mice running outside the buffet. With all that food, I can understand. DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT, drink the water, not even rinse your toothbrush. They do not treat it. Be careful even if you cut your leg and take shower. Bacteria can enter your body. I was fine all week until the last day. I came down with terrible cramping and uncontrolable bowel movements every 45 minutes for 3 days straight. No sleep and was miserable. Went to Dr. and was placed on strong antiobiotic. They blamed food contamination. Not sure I will go back.

Grand Palladium Palace & Resort

The resort was very clean. I don't have any complaints on the food, but the earlier you get to the buffets, the better. The pools were beautiful & clean. The drinks were great! The room was always clean, the maids were always on top of making sure you had fresh towels. Only recommendation, has to do with how the place was constructed. The showers, Leak everywhere. We had to create a wall of towels around the shower/bath in order to not get our entire room flooded. Also, the doors to the rooms slam, very loudly. Which makes it difficult to sleep past 8am. The beach was also beautiful, I saw reviews before going of people complaining about the sea weed- there was some sea weed. But it's because of the side of the island the resort is located on, and they do try to keep it maintained. The language barrier was frustrating after a couple of days, very few people spoke fluent English. Ordering at the sit-down restaurants and asking specific questions was very difficult. Overall I would recommend this resort; giving it 4/5 stars overall.

Also, it was hard to get help from the staff unless I went back to The front desk, because no one spoke English..... that. Evans frustrating at times... they wise the place was beautiful and I loved it

Couples getaway
Jul 21 2017
This was our first experience booking with Apple Vacations and we were very pleased! There were apple representatives to greet us at our departing and arriving airport as well as at our resort to give us details about Punta Cana and excursion options. Grand Palladium was an excellent resort! We went as a couple, but this might be a resort you would pick to go with family or friends. There weren't too many people who were there just as couples. This isn't something that bothered us, but if it is something that would bother you then you may want to look into a different resort. The buffet's offered good quality food and had many different varieties. My boyfriend is very picky and he was very satisfied with the food options. If you want to eat at a restaurant be sure to get there early as they fill up quick! Make reservations for the japanese restaurant the day you arrive at the resort if you plan on eating there. We were disappointed when we were not able to make a reservation because it books up so quick and we had no idea. One complain I have is about the maid service. We wen't out for dinner one night and when we returned to our room at about 9:30 the room to our door was open. There was a maid inside of our room cleaning. To me this was definitely not ok since there was already a maid in our room earlier in the day to clean our room. I was a little thrown off by this. Also a few times in the morning a maid would knock on our door, barely gave us enough time to wake up, and would just walk in. After that we kept the top lock on our door so that wouldn't happen again. The maids should just be more courteous of people's privacy. The hotel staff and bar staff were excellent and very friendly, especially inside the sports bar. This resort is huge, so definitely plan some time to explore the resort and see all the different options they have to offer. We got lucky because our room was very close to one of the many pools as well as the beach. If you are looking for a fun place to stay that offers good food, excellent service, and a lot to do I would recommend staying here!

Restaraunt reservations weee horrible, it was an all week thing. My husband couldn't wear a tank top to the buffet but I seen a woman in a thong with a see through cover up.

Nice Vacation!
Jun 22 2017
The property is beautiful, there was some construction going on but I appreciate the improvement. The Apple reps were great. The resort is big, that was good for our group. Plenty of room to explore and we were able to get rides most of the time. The rooms are nice, shower is poorly designed as I've read many say, but it was just an inconvenience, nothing major. Service can be spotty in the buffets but very good in the restaurants. It gets better after a few days when we became more familiar faces. We enjoyed the buffets with many things to choose from. The Steakhouse was our favorite restaurant. The beach is beautiful, clean white sand, clear blue water, the best I've seen. Overall a great trip, relaxing, no major problems to report, we would definitely go back!

The resort is beautiful and the staff are the best in the Caribbean. Many ala cart restaurants to choose from and multiple buffets as well. We have been here 3 times already and each time they out do themselves.

This is our 2nd time staying at the palladium in the Dominican. Cleanliness and customer service is second to none. I highly recommend this resort. Very friendly staff and most have an exceptional grasp of the English language. They make you feel like family.

We attended this resort with 90 people to attend a wedding. The location and setting where the gazebo was located was beautiful. The food at the Main Buffet at the Palace resort was NOT exceptional, it was actually quite boring and the same food each night. The service level was extremely poor and the waiters/waitresses were not attentive at all. You would have to signal them many times to bring you water, drinks/coffee/tea. They certainly were not working for tips. Very disappointing. Communicating with staff was difficult as they did not speak English. The Cathedral Buffet located at the Bavaro hotel is much better place in terms of atmosphere and more elegant setting better variety of food here then the main buffet at the Palace, however went two nights in a row and it was the same food here also. I would suggest that you implement the system to make reservations for the a la carte restaurants. Trying to attend one of the restaurants on a first come first serve basis is ridiculous for this huge resort and having to wait for an hour an half to eat a meal at these restaurant is truly unacceptable. The only restaurant you have to make a reservation is the Japanese. There were issues with staff stealing money from our guests, going into the newlyweds room and going through purses. The safes were not working, there were bed bugs in one of the rooms, it was brought to the attention of the front desk and asked many times to change rooms and was advised they would spray the room and this did not take place. Communicating with the reception desk was difficult as some staff did not speak English. The resort is huge and you need to travel with the trolley carts that the resort offers or be prepared to do a lot of walking. Hemmingway Bar was the best hangout place for our group and was enjoyed during the trip. The Sports Bar was the second spot to hangout. William at the pool side bar was a great bartender and was happy to serve our group. The Spa facility was used and the amenities they offer is relaxing, however the massage therapists can improve their service as we were advised we were getting a deep tissue massage and that is not what took place, it was more a light relaxing massage. Using the amenities they offered for the two days after the massage was good. The mud bath helped for sunburns and mosquitoe bites. The Beach and seeing the turquoise water daily was truly beautiful. Very minimal seaweed at the beach and it was kept clean. The grounds of the resort were beautifully landscaped and were well maintained. I would NOT recommend this chain of Hotel or return to this resort.

First of all this resort is huge. So huge that they have carts all over that transport you wherever you want to go.They come by about every 10 minutes or less to each lobby or you can catch one as they are letting other people off no matter where it may be. People said they were hard to get because they were always full. We had no problem at all. Also if you are reading reviews of this resort that are making you leary don't let them. I was getting a little worried I did not book a good place but then stuck to my gut instinct that it was nice and I was right. Actually it outdid my expectations. There were several buffets which is different that what I have experienced before at an all inclusive resort. The one by the pool I will admit that the review of it was probably justified as we did at times notice the food was not warm. But the other two were fantastic. The dinner restaurants were great. The Japanese, the steak house and the Italian restaurant I loved. We did go to the Indian one too but that is not my type of food so it wouldn't be fair for me to rate it. The beach was so beautiful There were several bars right on the beach which was really nice.The drinks were good but just like any other all inclusive they tasted watered down. The staff was ok. Some were so helpful but others didn't seem to want to be bothered. The man that checked us in was so nice but i didn't get his name to compliment him. We had interactions with him a few other times during our stay and he was always nice and helpful. We had a problem with our air conditioning and they were there and fixed it within a couple hours We liked the musical entertainment in the lobby in the evenings the best. It was great entertainment and the singers and musicians were very good. They always attracted a big crowd. There is a nice bar across from the band. If you are looking for souvenier shopping there are vendors to the right of the resort on the beach but go at your own risk. I have never been to a resort before that the vendors were so pushy. We actually just walked away and never bought anything after visiting just a couple of them and there were many. All in all we just loved this resort and will definitely return We also hands down reccommend this resort.
