After such a great holiday at the Grand Palladium Bavaro resort it is with a little sadness that i have to write about the following.
I know that we have read many times about credit card fraud. Whilst on holiday we used the services of the hotels proffessional photography department. Luckily, i had the cash in US dollars. However, my brother in law did not and wanted to pay via his credit card. He was told by the staff that the credit card machine was broken. They were very appologetic and offered to take him to the nearest ATM machine to allow him to withdraw funds, which although reluctant, he accepted. On his return to the UK he has found his card cancelled as it has been cloned and fraudulent activity has taken place.
I’m not saying that this happens everywhere, but for anyone travelling to the Palladium resorts please ensure you have cash to pay for these services to avoid any problems.
