    We still can’t make up our minds if we enjoyed it or not. We liked - The price compared to other Caribbean destinations The shorter flight times compared with Caribbean destinations The weather The beach The rooms are ok, the food and restaurants are ok, the drinks are ok. Staff are a bit hit and miss. We didn’t like - The size of the place. It took us 22mins to walk from the room to the gym. Then 22mins back. There are shuttles, but we never fully understood how they worked. The birds and monkeys being touted up and down the beach for pictures. The partner club experience. We were quoted £22,000 to become members and it was a very hard sell, that took 90 mins of our holiday and didn’t make sense when you did the figures. The constant selling of excursions. Not just on the beach but in the hotel grounds. Every time you leave a restaurant you run a gauntlet of people selling spa services or trips. On the whole if you are expanding your travel experiences outside of the normal European beach destinations then this is a good option. But if you have the money. I would recommend skipping this place. Pay a little bit more, fly a little bit further and enjoy the absolute magic that somewhere like Barbados delivers

    Lovely holiday

    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Dominican staying at the Grand Palladium Bavaro Suites. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it - the grounds & facilities are amazing. Our only criticism would be that there is no facility to book the a la carte restaurants & sometimes we had to wait over an hour & a half for a table, which is not ideal when you’ve got children. The Japanese is the only restaurant you can book, but it is by far, the best, we all loved the food & the show!

    Been there with family and friends for a week. Service was just ok, staff seemed a bit rude sometimes. Logistics at the restaurant needs to be improved, so many mistakes with our orders. Drinks quality at the pool was poor. Have a good time but we were expecting more based on the reviews.

    Best All Inclusive Resort We've Been To

    From the moment we checked in, I knew this vacation would be great. Rovin made us feel at home and ensured a comfortable stay. The front desk staff attended to every need, and even upgraded our room when I expressed my desire for something oceanfront. The rooms are clean and spacious. The food was very good and there were options for everyone. We never had to wait more than five minutes for a table. Even though this mega-resort is more like a city, you would never guess how many people are there. We frequently travel all-inclusive, but we will forever choose Palladium Bavaro when visiting Punta Cana. Also, make sure you tip the bartenders and they will give you plenty of alcohol.

    Fortnight of bliss

    Spent 2 weeks in Grand palladium, Bavaro. Went to a different restaurant every night, all very good, short walk to a very well kept beach, 5 pools all very good and clean, life guard on duty during the day, apartment is nice and spacious, pace of life is nice and slow..... What more can you you ask for in a break?
