This was our 3rd stay at a Grand Palladium. We've been to the Grand palladium in Punta Cana, the Grand palladium in Jamaica and since we haven't been disappointed with The Grand palladium chain, decided to stay at the White sands. We were promised a "Superior room location" with Transat Distinction collection. We were given a room in building 54 which was not the best location as far as the beach and pool were concerned.... a far walk to the beach quite early in the morning if we wanted chairs in the shade. That was the only inconvience and that the resort is too big, we didn't even get to see the whole resort in a 2 week stay
Everything was spotless, the staff was friendly, the food was great, we really enjoyed our stay.
But for a 5 star and the extra price, we really did not have many extra perks compared to those in the 4 and 4.5 hotels in the resort except for the guaranteed reservations at the restaurants.
