I went here with a group of friends who had all purchased the Groupon. We didn't know what to expect, and I was very pleasantly surprised. This is definitely a luxury resort, and the privacy, the wonderful service, amazing meals and gorgeous views were way more than I expected from a resort in the Dominican Republic. We had 5 star...

We agree with all the wonderful things said about "The Palace." It's not likely that we will ever stay in another place so unique. The view alone is incredible. The staff is personal and wonderful and always looking for opportunities to serve you and help you in any way possible. It was quite a humbling experience. It was our 30th...

It might be an adventure with the taxi ride to get to The Palace, but once we walked into the place we where amazed! Never imagined we would get to go to a place like this, with staff constantly bringing you anything you might want. We had all inclusive package which was definitely the way to go. The room was...

We just got back from four nights at the Palace. It was peaceful, romantic and totally awesome. It is the low season and there were just my husband and myself and one other couple at the whole resort. It has a totally private (and isolated) beach and for three days my husband and I were the only ones on the...

I don't know where to begin. We stayed for 8 days all inclusive and it was absolutely amazing. We were greeted on our first day with delicious drinks and the most wonderful people. The manager Juan Carlos got us checked in and showed us around what I can only describe as a stunning hotel. It is truly a palace. It...

My wife and I spent a week at the Palace for our honeymoon, but we would go back in a second for another vacation together or with friends. We chose the Palace because it is small and intimate, but still offered the option of having meals and drinks included with your stay. The Palace was an ideal combination of getting...

I am not the kind of person who goes to an exotic place and stays at the resort the whole time. Yet, that is exactly what I happily did during our time at the Palace at Playa Grande in Rio San Juan. I’m also not the kind of person who likes to go back to the same place over and...

I was just looking at my pictures from our honeymoon and forgot that I never wrote a review! I feel like I'm going to repeat many of things already said in previous reviews. I spent many hours researching resorts for our honeymoon and when I came across the Palace on Groupon, I hadn't come across that many positive reviews for...

My husband and I spent 5 days at the Palace -- what a treat! The property is astonishingly beautiful and incredibly well maintained and the level of service was fantastic. We've stayed at many five star hotels in the US and Europe, and we've never experiences such a caring, thoughtful and cooperative staff. The manager was waiting for us when...
