Hello, I have a chance to go to either one of these resorts … has anyone been to both and if so, which one is better?
Better meaning … the food, the beach, the staff … and the usual things that make a trip amazing:)
Have been to the Bahia Principe but not Palladium. Bahia beach leave a lot to be desired. In front of the resort is all crushed rock/coral and you could not walk in bare feet. The water is not very swimmer friendly. Very rocky and murky. Water shoes a must. On a calm day it may be OK for snorkeling. You can walk over to the other beach it’s a bit of a walk especially if it’s hot out. You can walk out to about waste deep before you hit the sea grass, it has a sandy bottom. Large area for loungers but small beach. I found the food to be amazing. Keep in mind this resort is huge and they have added another section. Hallways are carpeted.
