Recent guest reviews

Great hotel from the viewpoint of an experienced DR traveler. Good value for the money. do not hesitate to book this resort and ENJOY

Beautiful grounds, staff friendly I enjoyed the live music each night in the main reception/lounge. The rooms were very nice and comfortable. We stayed in a room where we walked out the door, down the hallway and onto the beach. (Bldg 3000). But many of the buildings are right next to the beach. The beach was nice. Lots of people and vendors as the day goes on but that’s the way it is everywhere it seems. The spa services were excellent. If you want to get away from all the people and just relax quietly in you own little world the hydrotherapy area is where you want to go . It has a sauna,steam room,hot tub, ice room, a pool and more. It’s so relaxing you could spend all day there. It also has a health bar there where you can order all heathy natural drinks Of all the restaurants we enjoyed the Argentine restaurant the most. there is hostess there named Jasmine who is the absolute best. Seriously, her friendly,personable service was the topping to a perfect vacation

Beautiful resort on sandy beaches. Grounds are immaculate. We were upgraded to the Turquesa/TRS section of the resort, which was a quieter area with an adults only pool, private beach areas, specialty restaurants and some rooms had a walk-out to a moat-like pool. The wristbands at the TRS had a chip in it for the room key, which was PERFECT- we never had a keycard to carry around. Staff was wonderful; friendly, accommodating, cheerful. Many spoke English and did their best to communicate (and understood much of my limited Spanish). The resort is very large but there are plenty of shuttles running all the time to "hitch a ride" if you don't want to walk. We got lost a number of times when walking, so that was frustrating. The specialty restaurants require reservations, but we were told they were all fully booked, so we were never able to make reservations. Luckily, they accommodated us at a few of them so we were able to try a couple of the many specialty restaurants on the resort. Drinks were delicious and bars were plenty!

Pro's: Grounds kept very well. Close to beach. Food pretty good, international selection. Close to shops, nightlife and other resorts. Con's: Staff not very welcoming, many kept to themselves unless spoken to first. Guests a bit snoody. Constant soliciting of goods and timeshare for TRS travel club. Room service subpar, room was not swept nor old dishes removed. The extent of room service was making bed and bringing fresh towels when asked. Pool for Punta Cana out if service for 3 of of 6 days on resort with no explanation nor instructions for alternate options.

Second time at Palladium and loved it again. Great facilities, helpful staff, and lots of dining options

As soon as we walked in to the lobby we was greeted with drinks and excellent service. Thank you for the VIP upgrade surprise and the personalized letter. We are truly amazed. Best time ever. Thank you. We stayed at the TRS Turquesa Royal. The amenities are superb and the food was excellent. Shout out to La melaza, feliz amd jaime. All the staff treats you like royalty, i mean it. We were at the adults only and i enjoyed every moment of peace and quiet.

Restaurant staff was so rude. Waited hours for our food.

I arrived on a Tuesday, and became very ill the following day. On Friday, I was transported to the local hospital and put on 4 medications. I was extremely ill 7 of the 8 days I was here, and upon my arrival home, I was diagnosed with Salmonella. I had a short meeting after I filled out an incident report, but no solution other than offering me a better stay “next time” was offered. I paid for an all inclusive trip, but was unable to eat, or drink any liquor during 7 of the 8 days I was there. The staff called this an odd incident saying that I had the only case. I travelled with 14 people, 9 got sick, and 5 went to the hospital.

Excellent customer service, the girls at the bar “ Shakira” and Sandra and my best bartender Vidal, great help at front desk “ Carolina” very friendly. Beautiful hotel, great beds, very clean. This the best vacation I had ever... Manager Miguel thanks for everything

The check in process is horrible. You stand in one line for a long time, for them to send you to another line. The room we had was nice, but we soon realized it was infested with roaches. Baby roaches and BIG roaches. After an hour, they moved us to one of the newer rooms. But ANGEL and FRANCISCO were amazing!!

I will never recommend a hotel to anyone cuz of the fact that the rooms were okay cleanliness of it was okay Comfort was okay won't be back

The best vacation I have taken in life! The staff were absolutely wonderful. Treated very well while I stayed there. Hotel was very clean and rooms were big. Had a fridge that was stocked everyday. Just say all you can eat and I’m there! Had a great time. The beaches were amazing. Hotel staff very attentive and caring about your needs. Had to bring out some of my Spanish that I learned in school which was great hadn’t practiced in a while. Most of the staff do not speak English but they will attempt to to meet your needs. very good stay will be back again in the future same hotel for sure!!!

Great amenities.Friendly staff. Amazing photographers. Only complaint is there should be more frequent shuttles to go around property as it is massive.

Great place. Excelente for children’s under 5 years old. The kids club it’s excellent.

Muy bueno. Mi reservación me dio acceso a todas las facilidades de los 4 hoteles de la cadena. El único inconveniente fue que deje mi wallet en la bata que utilice en el Zentropia Spa y a pesar de que no se habían llevado la ropa al laundry y buscamos en todos los paquetes no apareció la cartera ni el dinero en efectivo.

El hotel en si muy agradable, de una infraestructura moderna, cercano a la playa y bastante lujoso. Lo que me resulto de terror el servicio gastronómico que ofrecen, ya que tanto en los desayunos como en los almuerzos buffet demoran muchísimo tiempo en acomodarte y en servir bebidas o poner los cubiertos muy mala organizacion. El cafe siempre llega helado, y si pedis un Té, primero te lega la taza, luego a los 30min el agua, y por ultimo el Té te quitan las ganas de desayunar. Algo similar ocurre con la bebida en el almuerzo y cena. En cuanto a los restaurantes a la carta, el servicio es aun peor podes sentarte a las 8PM, te atenderán a las 9PM, la bebida si tenes suerte te llegara 930PM, y la comida al rededor de las 10PM. y para peor en el restaurante italiano las pastas van a llegar frías. Perdiste 2 hrs de tu vida para no poder comer algo rico. regresamos muy decepcionados con el servicio de comida, y es el comentario de todos los huésped. Hay una cantidad desorbitaste de empleados pero todos hablan entre si, pocos tienen ganas de servirte.

Es un excelente hotel con buenas atenciones, excelente comida y muchas amenidades. Mi esposo y yo pasamos una excelente estadia alli.
