Grand Palladium Palace Resort, Casino & Spa sprawls across Playa Bavaro, one of the most popular beaches in Punta Cana. Frommer’s ranked this stretch of sand among the best in all of the Dominican Republic. The Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea commingle here, keeping water temperatures pleasantly warm and ideal for snorkeling, kayaking, and windsurfing. This all-inclusive vacation gives you access to these and other non-motorized watersports, as well as to several restaurants, bars, and swimming pools scattered throughout the resort and its adjacent sister properties.
A plethora of restaurants and bars cater to almost any craving. There are a handful of buffet-style eateries and several upscale venues serving a diverse array of Brazilian, Mediterranean, and Japanese cuisine. You can sip cocktails at a swim-up bar shaded by a thatched roof. After dark, guests hit up the resort’s bars and discos or head to the onsite casino.
Deluxe rooms are ideal for recharging after a busy day, thanks to their in-room jacuzzis and private balconies. You can also relax with a massage or wellness treatment at the resort’s spa.
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic: Miles of White-Sand Beaches
When Christopher Columbus landed on the Dominican Republic more than five centuries ago, he described it as “a beautiful island paradise.” Punta Cana, located on the island’s easternmost tip, lays legitimate claim to that description. The coast stretches for more than 20 miles and is dotted with coconut palms, chaise lounges, and laid-back bars. Glitzy resorts feature prominently along the shoreline, but Playa El Cortecito, a short drive up the coast, harks back to earlier times. Brightly colored, thatched-roof shacks line the beach, and local fishermen still bring their boats to shore each afternoon with the day’s catch.
