Just OK

If your reservation is not at the Royal Suites you will not be able to make reservations at some of the "PREMIUM" restaurants like their Steakhouse, Italian, Mexican. If you were not able to make reservations you could wait in line to maybe get table or you can always get into the BUFFET. Remember if you are going to go to the "PREMIUM" restaurants NO SHORTS, NO TANKS are allowed into those restaurants. Also if you reservation are at the Royal Suites you get a better class of alcohol to drink and there are also less or no children running around the pools.

Great Group Getaway

I vacation with a group of friends every year and we were very happy with our trip this year. We were upgraded to the Royal Suites which meant there were no kids in the pool or the suite area which is great for an all adult vacation. Overall the food was good, with the exception of the Italian and Brazilian restaurants which were horrible food and service wise. Whatever anyone tells you make reservations for dinner because if you don't you'll never get a table. If are looking for casino time on your vacation I do not recommend the casino at this resort - it's horrible, but the Hard Rock casino is a 20 minute cab ride away and will serve the purpose.

Would not go again.

We were a group of five families. Three families had to switch rooms because of air condition problems. One family had to switch rooms twice. Had frequent incidents of the water cutting off while In the shower. Rooms were very average. Food was average. Nothing to do at night.

Beautiful Beach - Average Staff

The Palladium its a huge complex, with many things to do. There is a very large beach connecting to other hotels, which can be walked for quite some time in both directions. The beach and water are top notch. Due to the size of the complex, it is difficult to see everything and do everything at the resort, unless you stay a LONG time. The service provided by staff at restaurants, beaches, and bars was average at best.

AMAZING!

i just got back from here 2 days ago. it was the most incredible place i have ever been. the grounds were spotless, the rooms were great (could have used a little update but were still very clean) the pools were AMAZING. the staff, the nicest people i have EVER met, they would bend over backwards for you and catered to your every need, Faustin at the front desk was incredible. from the second we checked in he remembered our names and would always say hi to us even if he was with other people. the beach was breathtaking. the entertainment teams for the beach and the pool were incredible. the food in the main buffett was awsome, but the smaller buffets were not as good, the restaurants were very good, 4 course meals everynight. the disco (dance club) was alot of fun. the sports bar was great. it was good to have somepleace to get food 24 hrs a day becuase sometimes the excursions we did we missed a meal. the only thing i wish i had done was bring alot more american money in cash form (especially 1's). it was difficult to change over money from the atm i would highly HIGHLY recommend this place. im already planning a return trip for next year with some friends and will not even bother looking at other resorts. INCREDIBLE!

Great Weather, Great Value

The staff is extremely nice except at the front desk, who is normally busy and probably inundated with unreasonable requests from guests that forget this is a cheap hotel. Our room was very clean, but had some minor issues. There were some bugs, and our water pressure wasn't great in the shower. The food/waitstaff was good for breakfast, just okay for lunch and excellent at the specialty restaurants for dinner. I suspect that the liquor was watered down quite a bit, but we put in the extra effort to make up for it. Bavaro seemed to be the best choice for us, since Palace only got one exclusive restaurant/pool. I don't think we would've paid extra for the nicer room assuming that that's also part of it. This was my second trip to Punta Cana. I went to Ocean Blue & Sand in 2006. This hotel was much better than that one, but I suspect they have all gotten much better in the past 5 years.

Pretty good, all things considered.

Check out the snorkeling and para-sailing! You don't even have to leave the resort to book this, and the prices are reasonable.

Do NOT buy any excursions from the salesmen patrolling the beach and pool, or at least be prepared to haggle. The best way to avoid any problems down the line - albeit spend more money - is to buy straight from the hotel. My party and I had major dissatisfaction with one excursion, and since we had gone through a third party there was no settlement that could be reached.
