    So I thought I narrowed myself down to one resort, the Grand Palladium Bavaro on the Grand Palladium Property, but now I am wondering if that is the best of the 3 resorts there to go with. Is anyone familiar enough with the grounds to give any advice.

    Bavaro: Rated better on trip advisor, but the rooms look far away from the ammenities
    Palace: a few bad ratings, all rooms near the beach, close to the amenities, but a whole 5 cents more expensive (I find this amusing)
    Punta Cana: by the beach, by the amenities, did not rate too well on Trip advisor.

    Help!!

    Nonnie-

    I stayed at the Grand Palladium Punta Cana this past October and LOVED it. My honest advice is to choose whichever one is cheapest! The resorts don't feel like 3 "seperate" sections at all. We used all three sections for different things, all different pools, and went to all three lobbies and honestly there's not a huge difference depending on which you stay at.

    We liked the punta cana section being pretty central.. but the bavaro has all of the ala cartes and main theater.. but honestly nothing is more than a 10 minute walk away.

    Let me know if you have any questions about the resort. I also have a ton of pictures I could send you.. not wedding related but just of the resort in general. PM me if you'd like to see them.

      FI and I stayed at the Palace last year and had an AMAZING time. We stayed in the Royal Suites section and it was so much fun. The whole hotel was great!

        Thanks ladies - I had this same question!

        Also - the Palladium Addict forum is pretty helpful too Palladium Addict

        What did you ladies use for transportation to the resort from the airport? I think some of our guests would fly into Santo Domingo cause it is cheaper, but trying to figure out good transportation companies.. and photogs that are affordable..

        I'm can't say for group travel but when just my boyfriend and I went we were fine just grabbing a cab at the airport. Just do your research before hand so you know what the cost should be.

        Also, there's a company highly reccommended on tripadvisor.

        get a quote fro Bronly at IBK Turist Services on

        ibkservicios@gmail.com

        Just a note that the tripadvisor punta cana forums can be helpful for logistics once you are in punta cana!

        Happy planning!

          wow, thanks guys. I think I'll probably stick with the Bavaro section to keep things consistent, I already changed my location once.

          I hadn't even thought about airport to resort transportation...
