Overview

Plethora of on-site amenities, including a mini-golf course, six pools and three kids clubs
Some say customer service here is hit or miss

Unlike resorts that tack on extra fees for select services, the Grand Palladium Bávaro is all-inclusive. This, combined with its unbeatable beach location, is a no-brainer for travelers looking for a carefree Caribbean getaway. Located 12 miles northwest of central Punta Cana, the Grand Palladium Bávaro is a world unto itself. In addition to offering 672 rooms, the resort boasts five restaurants, multiple bars, six pools and three kids clubs. The property also offers complimentary water sports equipment rentals, including catamarans, kayaks and windsurfing boards, as well as six tennis courts, a miniature golf course and even an archery range. Accommodations are just as well-appointed. All suites come equipped with flat-screen TVs, stocked minibars, Jacuzzi tubs, coffee makers and free Wi-Fi access. Previous guests loved the resort's gorgeous grounds, ample kids activities and tasty cuisine but cautioned that the customer service is not up to par at times.

Frommer's

READ MORE 

The Bávaro is the largest in this complex of four Grand Palladium all-inclusive resorts strung side-by-side along a full kilometer of Bávaro beach. It is the heart of the complex, really, the location of many of the restaurants and home to the greatest variety of room choices – from junior suites to swim-up suites, family suites to romance suites (canopy bed, thatched terrace, and Jacuzzi for two).

Frommer's Very Highly Recommended

Fodor's

READ MORE 

Four sprawling, contiguous resorts (with a shuttle service until 2 am) share these well-kept grounds and feel like a beachside village, and three of these – Grand Palladium Bávaro, Grand Palladium Punta Cana, and Grand Palladium Palace – share one another's facilities, including a top-notch spa and health club. ... All rooms are large and well furnished, with flat-screen TVs, jetted tubs, and a fold-out sofa.

Walking shoes are recommended, but family-friendly amenities, lower prices than some neighbors, and renovated rooms are the big draws. ... The Grand Palladium Bavaro is one of four resorts on a single complex that consists of nearly 2,000 rooms.
