Barcelo Barvaro Deluxe vs. Grand Palladium Palace Resort

Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe vs. Grand Palladium Palace Resort, Spa & Casino

We are a 25 and 22 year old couple going to Punta Cana in the end of Oct. 2014.

We are looking to book a room that has a jacuzzi on the balcony with a ocean view.

We are looking for a close walk to the beach, beautiful beach, good food, good spa, good nightlife.

We are not sure which resort is better for our wants.

Also should we book a standard room and upgrade when we get there to the club premium or is it too risky at that time of year?

Thanks!

2 nice locations and well running resorts.

as for the beach, the beach at the barcelo can not be beaten. year around supercalm, turquois shimmering shallow water, very long and superdeep/wide white sandy beach, the postcard perfect beach location.

both resorts are very big, with the Barcelo beeing built along the beach, so no rooms are far, all within a very short stroll, at the Palladium many rooms are quiet a bit back from the beach, but they run a very effective Tram System there, so no biggy on that.

both offer activities day and night, food and drink wise all those AI resorts are running on very similar/equal levels. at both resorts you have shopping and off resort bars and restaurants near via a short walk along the beach.

i can't comment on all their different roomcategories as for which ones have the requested jacuzzi or not, someone else will fill that in here.

have fun

Mike

We are booked in a junior luxury suit at the Grand Palladium Bavaro which is next door to the Palace. The suit has a roof top terrace that has a Bali bed and two person jacuzzi. These rooms are only in three buildings on the property and they were all just built this past fall. The buildings are all pretty close to the beach as well. I haven't gone yet but I am looking extremely forward to it. We have been to other Palladium hotels and have always enjoyed them.

The grand palladium palace does not have a jacuzzi on the balconies, the above poster is correct in that the bavaro section does have 2 room categories that have the outdoor jacuzzi tubs, the luxury junior suite and the luxury master suites

Hi Honeydew617, Have you been to the Luxury Junior Suite at the Palladium Bavaro yet? We're looking to book it with children so we could have some alone time on the roof while their sleeping/watching TV... Do you think it's worth it?
