This beachfront hotel is just for adults and comes with a wealth of bars and first-class restaurants.
This hotel has its own private stretch of white-sand beach, which comes with palapas, daybeds and waiter service. For getting around all the bars and restaurants in the complex, there's a special buggy service for guests.
At this adults-only hotel, the pool is a picture of calm. It's equally peaceful in the restaurants, where lobster and Champagne are the norm. In the evenings, it's all about relaxed cocktails with some light entertainment.

We booked through Expedia and didn't know what to expect. The staff provided excellent service and even made reservations for us so we could enjoy the different restaurants on site. Adults area was wonderful and very peaceful for those looking for a place to just relax and be pampered. We recommend the couples spa at Zentropia! Angelita was amazing! Yanet the bartender at our area was wonderful and Andersen, main waiter at Le Chanterelle was also great!More
A Great Vacation Place!
This was a very, very good vacation for us - one week; end of June. Hubby & I do not generally like large resorts but this was an exception due mainly to the staff. Pickup and transfer from the airport went very smoothly because we had the private transfer. Check-in was fast and easy, too. Cool towels and champagne at the front desk was quite welcome! They took our luggage to our suite and our butler, Tony, walked us over while sharing necessary information. We were in room 5305 - a swim up suite - SUPER! The suite was lovely; comfortably decorated and very spacious. Shower stall was separate from the toilet area; great water pressure; loads of hot water. L'Occitaine amenities in the room. Joycelyn was the maid for our room and she was smiley and efficient. Room service comes through an outside dumb-waiter type door and a red light comes on in the room to notify you of the arrival. Place the empty dishes back in there and flip on the green light for them to remove them. Fantastic idea: if you are not dressed, you have no worries. Jacuzzi tub was always decorated with flowers as was the king size bed. Room was kept impeccable. Double sink; magnified/lighted room good for makeup. Free wi-fi. Food was good and choices were plentiful. The grounds are spectacular! There are peacocks walking around, too. What made this outstanding were the staff members we interacted with: Butler: Tony. Maid: Joycelyn. Eduardo: Spa Reservationist (mi novio). The Invigorating Scrub was a great deal at the spa and it was so relaxing; especially the outside shower when you were done. I strongly suggest this spa treatment! In the buffet area: "Super" Juan Camarero, the waiter, always had a lovely table waiting for us sprinkled with flowers and other surprises for us each evening. His service was OUTSTANDING and we looked forward to seeing his smiling face at breakfast and dinner and hearing him make quirky, fun noises as he passed our table. He had a great attitude at all times. Working with him was Mildred, also excellent. Michael Marcos made the best omelets and Ginette, the front door hostess, was so much fun as she greeted us daily (I finally got "Buenos Noche" right!). I cannot stress how much the staff added "value" to our relaxing vacation. Every person you passed on the property smiled and acknowledged you (the groundskeepers, the shuttle transport men, front desk help). The shows each night were great and over the top but transportation from there back to The Royal Suites was pandemonium. The pools were great and I love swim up bars! I like the adult beaches where I could go topless, too. There was excellent bar service even on the beach. It was sad that on our last two days a seaweed problem presented itself on the shore. That's Mother Nature. I would highly recommend this resort.More

My Fellow Americans, YOU MUST GO HERE!
Last year, not being Caribbean savvy, I went onto Apple Vacations website, wanting to surprise my fiancÃ© with a trip to Punta Cana. I didn't trust the reviews, because there are a lot of un-satisfy-able people (Mostly the Europeans who think they're "Entitled'). I came across The Palladium and liked the idea that there were 4 resorts on one property, Grand Palladium Palace, The Bavaro, The Punta Cana and The Royal Suites. The Royal Suites is the V.I.P. adult section (NO KIDS). The other 3 share amenities/restaurants. So if you're at the Bavaro, you can go to the restaurants, shows, shops and beaches of the Palace and Punta Cana, but not the Royal Suites section. If you stay at the Royal Suites, you can use all 4. I chose the Grand Palladium Palace, but upon arrival, was upgraded to the V.I.P. Royal Suites! It was sweet! As a VIP, you have your own private restaurants and section of the beach. You can make reservations for any of the restaurants in the other 3 resorts, while the other class cannot. They have to hope they get lucky and not have to wait long for seating. At these restaurants the menu says there is a $35 extra fee if you want the lobster. But not if you're a VIP! It's free! Bring on the lobster. There are bars everywhere giving away free alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks. The whole place looks like paradise, with peacocks roaming around free. The restaurants are fabulous and in abundance. With 4 resorts in one, the place is huge. There are many vehicles with drivers to take you anywhere you need to go. There are top notch acts performing every night. Live bands playing in every lobby each night. A late night disco, a casino, and loads of activities. Free Salsa lessons, Spanish lessons, bingo, bocce ball, volley ball, tennis, zumba, billiards, ping pong, just to name a few. You can take a kayak out into the ocean. The staff is like a family and treat you very nice. The buffet style breakfast and lunches are enormous. There are medical facilities right on the resort. You can have a van pick you up and take you off the resort to shop in the local stores. Besides the Jacuzzi and free liquor cabinet, there is a safe in your room. If you're not shopping, lock up your wallet and passports. Everything is included! This year we were upgraded to a swim up room! Right outside is a deck with lounge chairs, right off the pool! The Dominican Republic has a $10 tax to enter the country. It's called the Tourist Card. You can buy it online and save yourself a long line at the airport. While the Europeans are standing in the long line complaining and thinking up stupid things to say on Trip Advisor, you can slip right through and be at the resort in half an hour. You can pay extra for excursions if you choose. I am here at the resort right now (Year 2) writing this review. This year we are staying for 10 nights. I can't get enough of this place. We will be back next year. I'm even planning on treating my daughter and her husband to a vacation here next year! I wish everyone could experience this place. John-USAMore

Royal suites adults only
I stayed here because I was upgraded due to construction on the grand palladium palace. This was a very pleasant upgrade. VIP status is great. The main adults only pool is nice, warm, very accommodating with swim up bar. This all inclusive resort has much to offer. Most things within walking distance.?beach is also right there as well. Many off site shops from the beach. The only suggestion is more specialty restaurants. If you like Mexican and Dominican food you'll find many options. Much different from the United States.More

Hotel was excellent quality. Friendly staff. Our favorite restaurant was the Italian and steak house we had a waiter Daniel At the Italian restaurant that was beyond attentive. The best service from waiters during our trip was him.Pool bar service was good. Would have liked pool hours to be longer then 7pm but understandable due to safety issues. Butler service Ynando "king Kong" was above and beyond what we expected. He helped us with hotel directions,reservations,shopping and went out of his way to make our wedding day extra special. He definetly made our trip an amazing experience. He is the heart of the hotel. Our wedding ceremony was very disappointing! We planned this whole trip and spent a lot of money to come here to get married. Although we picked a simple package because it was only the two of us. We expected our wedding day to as much a priority as bigger weddings. We were told the service would be performed in Spanish and translated. This did not happen. We did not have a run through before the ceremony of what we would be saying or doing. We did not even know there would be music as we would have had a choice to pick our own song. The person who performed the ceremony was dressed in her employee uniform with a badge on. I think this was inappropriate for wedding ceremony. Our register we signed was in very cheap plastic cover and pen was old. Not nice for pictures. As soon as ceremony was performed. The wedding staff left and we had to walk back to our room. There was nothing even in place for ride back. The excursions were enjoyable. We did get sick on the food prepared on the beach for the day trip to saonA island.More
