Punta Cana Hotels

Grand Palladium Resort Spa & Casino

  • Casual Chic


  • 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


  • 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

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, the second being a seafront terrace with Jacuzzi and Balinese bed; similarly 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 some swim-out suites as well as two fine restaurants. One even offers chateaubriand. 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.
