Hopefully this review will give you a clear picture of what it's CURRENTLY like at this so-called 5-star resort. In my opinion it's really a 3.5 or 4 dressed in 5-star clothes. There's a lot I could complain about but I'll try to stick to popular points of interest for travelers and let you decide. 1) They lied. I don’t know who is responsible but people are lying about this resort. It is NOT OPEN. To be clear, GP Bavaro is not open. GP Punta Cana and GP Palace and TRS are open. The Bavaro side, which is what we were sold two reservations for, has not been open “for over a year” as we were told while we were trying to check-in. I found this out as I was checking in, no mention of this by email, Expedia, text . . . nada. Check-in took over 30 minutes and the staff was trying to find us two rooms at one of the other resorts. It was a nightmare. 2) Even though Punta Cana, Palace, and TRS are open, they are not fully open. Restaurants are closed permanently or open only on certain days of the week. Essentially 3 resorts (since TRS is another pay-tier and off on its own) are now smushed into 2 (Punta Cana and Palace) AND they are still taking people’s money and booking for Bavaro. Now extrapolate that across everything else (room service, beach, pools, etc) and there you have it. 3) The "beach". I was pretty livid during check-in but I remember the Front Desk receptionist kept mentioned how there's a little seaweed on the beach and they're sorry that they can't clean it right now. Again, I was pretty irritated and I just wanted a room so I ignored it. However, the next morning I understood why they were trying to cover themselves. I don't know if I can blame this on them, but the beach was unusable due to the amount of seaweed. Some local told us that there was a storm and it pushed all the seaweed in which I could believe since the water was brown from the beach to break, but the GP resorts made no efforts to at least clean it off the beach. Just left it in huge piles or as is (see photo). Other boutique resorts down the beach did hire labor to clean the beaches as we walked all the way up the beach to see if we could swim elsewhere. However, I will say that the amount of seaweed in the water was massive all up and down the beach so the ocean definitely had brought it in. Still, 0 points for not even trying to clean our beach so we could at least enjoy the sand. 4) Food and alcohol is mediocre. You will be charged $10/3 plates for room service (also not mentioned in our reservation). BTW, the "room service" is pretty darn slow if they remember to service your room at all. Our mini-bar was not stocked, but they did stock it the next day even though I had requested 3x for them to come that night to stock it and they said they were on the way. 5) COVID. Their standards were just OK. It'll depend on where you go. The main buffet was horrendous. Lots of people crammed in (because restaurants were all booked), masks were required but not enforced, gloves were handed out for getting food but again not enforced. To our horror we saw children running around picking at the food at each buffet with their hands and eating right there from the buffet, with no masks on. Again, this was the main buffet, so if you can avoid and you don't like a higher risk of getting COVID or some other virus, you should avoid. Most other places indoors (i.e. lobbies, bars, restaurants) all were wearing masks or at least attempting to. Let me throw in a small ray of light in this review for those of you who are locked in or can't afford somewhere else. The pools were very nice. There was one dedicated for adults which was nice to get away from the main pool crowded with children and terrible music. The bar staff that we encountered were friendly and can help you improve your drinks if you ask them nicely. Since I did not want to be pissed off the entire time I tried to be more positive and enjoy the company of our friends, which is very much possible here with the help of never-ending alcohol and cheap local cigars. Cheers and good luck!

Room Tip: Get a room closer to the beach if you can. The middle and pool parts of the resort have bad club...

Dear Sukshin623, Infinite thanks for giving us the privilege of being your host and choosing us as the Caribbean setting for your vacations. We truly regret not having lived up to your expectations on this occasion as we would have liked, please receive our heartfelt apologies. Regarding seaweed, we are all saddened by the occurrence of this natural phenomenon, rest assured that the hotel is and will continue to make great efforts to clean the beach through its external provider, we appreciate your understanding. Regarding some subtle limitations and the temporary closure of some non-essential facilities, with great regret we inform you that this situation derives from the sanitary provisions and executive decrees issued by local authorities aiming to contain Covid-19 In this way, fostering a safe vacation environment for our visitors, we hope to recover the normalcy as soon as possible and entertain our guests as usual, of course, we heartily apologize for any potential discomfort emanating from such measures. Of course, as a guest-focused company, we have taken note of each of the aspects pointed out that can be improved to share them with our Management, I'm pretty sure they will be happy to take advantage of these areas of opportunities to turn them into real strengths, thanks for being honest with us and helping us to get better.

The Bavaro Suites section of Grand Palladium is not currently open. I was booked into that section by a Cheap Caribbean agent. When we arrived on Monday, our rooms were in the Palace section. Regardless of where rooms are located, this resort is below par. Beds are terrible. Food is terrible and often hard to come by. We like to sleep in late which makes getting breakfast impossible. No food service by the pool. Entertainment is very weak. No drink menus anywhere. Showers are very hard to get in and out of (big step) due to jetted tub. It also floods our bathroom every time we shower due to poor design.

Dear Y9801AOamyg, Thank you for sharing your experience at Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa to contribute to the constant improvement of our service. We sincerely regret not having lived up to your expectations this time as we usually do it with most of our visitors, please receive our heartfelt apologies. Due to the prevailing market conditions and the sanitary protocols issued by the local authorities, certainly some of our facilities are temporarily closed, this situation will change very soon according to our predictions. It is important to note that GP Palace is not an inferior hotel to GP Bavaro and whenever we make a hotel change, we make sure that the guest receives even greater value. Regarding the unfortunate events described above, we are extremely saddened that your stay has not been smooth and in accordance with our service guidelines, of course, your words feed our desire to detect potentially improvement areas, therefore we will address your feedback to the hotel management to be taken into account when implementing immediate and short-medium term improvements. We dream of the opportunity to receive your pleasant presence again in the future, it is of high interest for us to regain your trust and demonstrate that we are a team capable of generating a pleasant environment where you and yours can have a beautiful holidays. Warmest regards from PC! Gelson Zorrilla Hospitality Manager

Me and my friends went to this place expecting it to be very nice with lots of great people. Upon arrival, the service at the front desk was horrible and it took our group around 30 minutes to an hour just to check in. When we got to our room, the beds were not made along with pillows on the floor and you could tell the room was not ready for us. We then went to the front desk and it took them 2 hours just to get around to us. There seemed to be a maid in every villa but our maid obviously had other stuff to do since my room was not touched until 4 or 5 p.m every day. I had to go to the front desk to grab water bottles many times since there was none in our room when the maids were suppose to. The food overall was not good at all. I went to all of the dinner places like the italian, steakhouse, hibachi and indian and I was not impressed at all. I had to ask many times at each place for my drinks along with others in my group. My table would receive their food first and we finished our food before our other table would even receive their appetizers. The buffet food was alright but everything tasted not good just okay. A lot of stuff there was closed and it was not shown prior to our departure. The swim up bars were all closed and the service at the pools were not very good. Even though we paid prior to going to this all inclusive resort, the waiters would eventually stop serving us if we did not tip enough. Overall I would not go here again and I hope you do not make the same mistake our group did.
