We have just returned from spending two weeks over Christmas and New Year at the Grand Palladium Palace and it was amazing. We upgraded our room before we went and discovered upon checking in we were staying in the Royal Suites. We had a specific pool where no kids were allowed and we able to use the Royal Gourmet restaurant, which was gorgeous.
The whole holiday was great, we ate at all the a la carte restaurants: Mexican, Spanish, Italian, Dominican and Japanese and they were all lovely.
All 3 hotels, Palace, Bavaro and Punta Cana are all on the same resort and offer more bars and restaurants than you need, they even offer a train to take you around the resort! The grounds were stunning and amazingly cared for.
The people were amazing, from the barman to the waiters they were all friendly and helpful. One exceptionally helpful person was Cely one of the Butlers in the Royal Suites, who couldn’t do more for you. Cely wasn’t our allocated butler, however she was so helpful and friendly and always willing to help with everything you needed.
Only one thing we wouldn’t recommend would be the snorkelling, we got a speedboat from the beach and drove out about 15mins to the reef, however, there wasn’t too much to see, not particularly colourful. This was the only disappointing thing we found on the trip.
Overall a totally amazing holiday.
