    Flight with jet 2 quick and efficient, directed to the transfer coach ,great ,but drop off nearly missed, had to walk from next hotel and ask twice if it was our stop, lucky it was only 5mins around the corner or could of needed up anywhere, hotel check in was all done on phone and was a bit complicated for me as I'm not a tech person , but then had to wait 3an half hours for room , , not good, you can use facility's, but you just want your room when you have been up since 430am and its12 lunch time and hot, food good , room very nice, view of carpark off the balcony not so good, and planes flying over very close, to the airport, but didn't bother us tbf, Mexican resturant was excellent, nothing open on sundays and lots of places closing down this time of year, but not a clubbers so didn't mind, plenty of bars still, tip for smokers or capers bring em with you as nowhere to get any from locally, 40 mins into playa den bossa us the nearest , not bad all in all, dont think I'd come main season though, 8of 10

    This hotel exceeded our expectation. I didn't realize that there were 4 hotels in the same property and the one we booked was the Bavaro Hotel. My partner and I came from Santo Domingo using the Expreso Bavaro bus that dropped us directly at the main gate. We spoke with the guards and they looked us up on their list. Once they confirmed our booking a porter took us to the main lobby. The receptionist Yamel was super friendly and courteous. We were upgraded to a Honeymoon suite. Aris the porter took us to the room and gave us an explanation of the amenities. He was funny, very lively and courteous. This room was fantastic! It had a very comfortable bed and a large bathroom with a jacuzzi. It also had a covered patio with a shower and a hammoc. The complex has 13 restaurants and several of them are A la carte. I had low expectation due to reading some reviews but the food was good and great quality even at the buffet. I enjoyed very much eating a local dish called sancocho at the buffet. We also tried the argentinian restaurant and the japanese steak house. I wish we had had enough time to go to the wine bar. We walked mostly but sometimes took the little train that went from hotel to the other hotels. There are bars at every hotel and at the beach, but our favorite one was the Hemminway bar where the staff is dressed in white like in Cuba on the 1950's. They serve better quality liquors on this bar and they also have live music. There was also a theater were we saw a live show and a club but we didn't go to the club. We were lucky that the weather was gorgeous and the beach was turquoise blue. We did see several vendors walking around but none of them were pushy, if you signaled that you were not interested, they would just move on. It seems that the hotel cannot control this as the beach area is public land and people are allowed to walk on the sand but they cannot go into the property as they have staff watching the accesses. We also enjoyed the foam party at the pool, and the POP staff kept us entertained during our stay. The spa massage we got was so relaxing, we were able to get a discount and was a great way to end a very busy day. We did have some issues with one of one the bathroom sinks but it was quickly resolved once we called guest services(we had a person come and fix it in less than 5 min as they were nearby). Also the cleaning staff forgot to add fresh towels when they cleaned the room but again this minor issue was resolved quickly with a call. I felt very safe and when we left , the guards at the gate made sure to notate the taxi driver's information and our room information. Two other people I'd like to mention are Jeidy from the arrecife lunch buffet and Gilberto from the Paisana Argentine restaurant. Them along Aris and Yamel were truly outstanding staff and made our stay special. We wished we could have stayed an extra night but we will definitely be back!

    If you are scared you won’t enjoy your vacation with toddlers do not fear. The daycare for toddlers was great. Open from 9-8pm and was our lifesaver. It was also included so no extra fees. Overall great hotel and enjoyed it very much. Please tip waiters and drivers that bring u around the resort. These people don’t get paid much and are so helpful and caring (common courtesy).

    I was at the Grand Palladium Bavaro in October and it was excellent. The rooms were spacious and beautiful, the food was great - there were so many restaurants to choose from! The beach and the pool were my favourite places. The entertainment team, especially Angelina and Mini Cooper were so friendly and made sure that we had a great time during our visit. They planned a variety of activities every single day which were all really fun to take part in - our favourite was the Fruit Decoration :) Thank you so much to everyone, especially the entertainment team - we will definitely return!
