Punta Cana Hotels

Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa

Pros

  • Excellent offshore snorkeling (extra charge)
  • Guest rooms are exceptionally spacious, and quiet, because of solid, quality construction and location far from activity centers
  • Complete spa and health club

Cons

  • Few rooms have sea views
  • The attractive lobby at Turquesa serves as the club lounge with the bar/café offering drinks but no contemporary hors d’oeuvres
  • The Royal section doesn't have a strong fun quotient but rather focuses on calm relaxation
  • Staff has minimal English and must guests are not Anglos

Fodor's Review

Four sprawling, contiguous resorts (with a shuttle service until 2 am) share these well-kept grounds and feel like a beachside village, and three of these—Grand Palladium Bávaro, Grand Palladium Punta Cana, and Grand Palladium Palace—share one another's facilities. New options within the “Bavaro” include brand-new loft suites with two stories, with seafront terraces with Jacuzzi and Balinese bed; the new swim-out junior suites have the same kind of terrace. Guests at the top-tier, adults-only Royal Suites Turquesa (closest to the ocean) can visit the main complex but can hurry back to their own exclusive restaurant and other offerings; each cluster has its own private pool and 60 swim-out suites as well as two fine restaurants. One even offers chateaubriand and lobster. Rooms in all four resorts have hydro-massage tubs. Bi-level loft suites are an option at the Palace. After dinner, the nightly show is the typical stopover before hitting the disco or casino. There's also a full plate of organized activities, including a good kids' club.
