Resort Profile

The largest section of the sprawling Grand Palladium resort complex in Punta Cana, Grand Palladium Bavaro Suites caters well to both families and couples with outstanding dining variety, an impressive kids club, plenty of activities, and accommodations with romantic swim-up terraces (in some). The three other sections of the complex are the Grand Palladium Punta Cana (Baa2), the Grand Palladium Palace (Ba1), and The Royal Suites Turquesa (A2, adults only). The beach directly in front of the Bavaro Suites section is the best of the complex, but the pool and surrounding area are on the small side for the property’s size. Room types include new two-story loft suites and swim-out junior suites; both have beautiful terraces with jacuzzis and Bali beds. The food is mediocre at best and some areas (such as the beach) can get crowded; but the resort offers a good fitness center, an on-site casino, a nice swim-up bar, a bar right on the beach, a spa with a hydrotherapy circuit (in the Palace section) and a shuttle to get around the grounds. Activities include sunrise and sunset yoga classes, dance classes, badminton, tennis (six quality courts), archery, banana boat and glass bottom boat rides, parasailing, party boat rides, kayaking, sailing, scuba diving and snorkeling excursions to Isla Catalina, and deep sea fishing. Guests have access to all complex areas except The Royal Suites Turquesa.

Free COVID-19 antigen tests are offered on-site to guests traveling back to countries that require it for re-entry, including the United States. In order to be eligible for the complimentary test, however, guests must be enrolled in the Palladium Rewards loyalty program before check-out (there is no cost for joining). Test results will be received the same day in digital format as required by the CDC. Guests should contact the Front Desk upon arrival to schedule. PCR tests are also available, at an additional fee. In the event of a positive test, the affected guest can quarantine at the hotel for up to 10 days at no additional cost, with up to three companions.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
