    Location 7.5 /10

    The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa is located in Punta Cana, the country's top tourist destination with 25 mi of beaches, between the Caribbean Sea and the Atlantic Ocean, on the southwest coast of the Dominican Republic. It is built on Bavaro beach, 1,640 ft from Plaza Bavaro (the town centre offers nothing truly authentic), less than a mile from the village of El Cortecito, 37 mi from the bustling town of Higuey (1 hour), and 3.5 hours by road from Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic. The international airport of Punta Cana is 15.5 mi away from the hotel (30 minutes). There is a bus stop 1 mi from the hotel.

    Accommodation 8.25 /10

    The rooms are spacious (355 sq ft) and very comfortable, with wooden furniture. All the rooms have individual air conditioning and ceiling fan, satellite television (30 channels), a free mini-bar (refilled 3 times a week with bottles of water, fizzy drinks and beer), a tea and coffee kit, a large free safe, an iron and ironing board, telephone with paid Wi-Fi internet access, and a terrace or furnished balcony, all of which overlook the sea. The suites are fabulous. Ask for rooms on the ground floor, which have bigger terraces. The rooms have a tiled floor and very pleasant and colourful Dominican decoration. There is also a large jacuzzi bath, located not in the bathroom but in the room right by the bed! The bathroom is spacious, very clean and well decorated, with a large flexible shower, a magnifying mirror, a hair-dryer, hospitality products, a comb, tissues, and a toilet. For honeymoon couples, ask for a romantic suite with a four-poster bed, hammock, and outside shower!

    Overview 8.25 /10

    The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa has 451 rooms spread over a huge 80-acres area of coconut trees and tropical vegetation. It is pleasant to walk along the paths which wind through the whole estate. They are very well laid out, taking you past flamboyants and flowers of all colours. The buildings are white, quite elegant, and extend along each side of the main swimming pool (with incorporated jacuzzi bath and waterside bar) and the theatre, open since December 2003, which is next to the disco. The distances between the facilities are sometimes rather long. Allow for around 20 minutes to reach the beach from reception. The Renova spa is located beside the reception of the Grand Palladium Palace Resort Spa and Casino, and offers inclusive services such as a Turkish bath, a whirlpool bath, a sauna, cold water pool, power showers, Vichy shower, a large swimming pool with a water circuit, and a fitness centre with cutting edge equipment. There are also paying services, such as various treatments in the 12 massage huts, and the beauty and hairdressing salon.

    Food and drink 8.25 /10

    The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa has no less than 11 restaurants! There are 6 buffet restaurants and 5 "à la carte" restaurants, all of which offer a wide choice of high-quality cuisine. The main (air conditioned) buffet, El Behique, is located next to reception. It has a different theme every day (Mexican, American, Oriental, Italian, Dominican, Spanish, and the gala evening, to top things off at the end of the week). All kinds of tastes are catered for! Breakfast is served from 7.00 am to 10.00 am, lunch from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm, and dinner from 7.00 pm to 10.00 pm. The beach has 3 other buffet restaurants which open for lunch. In the evening, there is also have the choice of 5 "à la carte" restaurants: Spanish cuisine at "El Quijote"; Asian at the "Bamboo"; Mexican at the "La Cantina Mariachi"; international at the "El Arrecife" beach restaurant; and finally Italian at the "Trattoria Mare Nostrum", located next to the lobby of the Grand Palladium Palace Spa and Casino. Guests of the Grand Palladium Punta Cana and Spa also have access to the restaurants of the two neighbouring hotels. The choice is all yours. There are 11 bars scattered around the hotel (lobby, beaches, theatre, swimming pools), so there is little chance of dying of thirst!

    Spa 7.75 /10

    Located next to the reception at the Grand Palladium Palace Resort Spa and Casino, the Renova Spa provides all-inclusive services such as a Turkish bath, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a cold water pool, sensation showers, a Vichy shower, a large swimming pool with a water circuit and a fitness centre with state-of-the-art equipment, as well as other services charged extra such as the various treatments in the 12 massage rooms, and the beauty and hair salon.

    Beach 8.25 /10

    Bavaro Beach is really exceptional, and sheltered by a coral reef. With turquoise blue lagoon, clear 28°C water, soft fine sand as white as flour, and a few coconut trees which act as natural sunshades, it is difficult to resist! A water sports centre offers various activities from 9.00 am to 5.00 pm. Guests can play beach volleyball. There are massage huts with palm leaf roofs on the beach, together with deck chairs, showers, and palm leaf sunshades. Children can let off steam in the large blue castle that acts as a trampoline. A bit peckish? There is plenty of choice - there are 6 beach bars and 3 restaurants!

    To know

    The Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa was built in 1996 and renovated in 2005. It is a very comfortable hotel belonging to a huge complex of three hotels. This resort belongs to the Spanish Fiesta Hotels and Resorts group. It is lively, friendly, and well equipped, and organises many activities. It has many strong points, the main one being that everyone can find something they enjoy here: couples, families, young people and groups. Children will be happy at the large and well-equipped Fiesta Fort mini-club (with a kitchen, workshop, 6 beds for a siesta, table football and table tennis, and a small swimming-pool). There is also a giant chess board. To use the internet, you can go to the sports bar, which is open 24 hours a day.However, there is one snag: you have to like large complexes, which inevitably end up losing conviviality. A shuttle carries guests around the whole complex from 10.00 am to 2.30 am.All the guests of the Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort and Spa have access to the facilities of their two neighbours; the Grand Palladium Palace Resort Spa and Casino, and the Grand Palladium Bavaro Resort and Spa. This friendly hotel-club alongside the beautiful Bavaro beach is suitable for both families and young people.

      The Bavaro Princess knows how to combine gigantism (686 rooms), tranquillity and elegance. Despite the beautiful beach and the carefully maintained tropical garden, Mother Nature is spoiled.
