- All Inclusive Features
Great experience overall. Quick check in and room ready. Shuttle took us to our rooms right away . Room is in need of an update but everything was in working order. Comfy bed & pillows. Fridge was fully stocked and lots of towels.We enjoyed the food.... buffets and ala carts. Lots of choice. Travelled with a vegetarian and there was always lots for her to choose from. Buffets were somewhat confusing with opening times and sometimes only one of the two was open. Would have been helpful to have hrs posted on doors. Drinks were always plentiful & tasty.Sports bar was open 22 hrs each day so nice to go for a snack.All staff we encountered were happy and friendly. When tipped they were very appreciative. We never felt pressured to tip by any employee. Beautiful views from the Infinity Bar....great place to watch the sunset. Everynight there was entertainment there as well.Great big pool with swim up bar was nice. Relax pool was nice as well although smaller it was quieter and the bar not as busy. Beaches were nice. Some a little rocky so I made use of my water shoes.Free wifi through all of the resort....sometimes spotty but nice not having to pay extra.I would return to this resort . Overall experience was great.
This was a great location and resort for our family.Our children are 10 and 7 and this was our 1st all inclusive holiday and 1st trip to Jamaica.We can't wait to return and will not hesitate to return to the Grand Palladium. The hotel was described accurately and despite reading mixed reviews of the quality of the food and restaurants we were very impressed. Our favourite for evening meals were the Mexican and the Thai restaurants although all were of very good quality.The children liked breakfast time the most as their favourite waiter Deneil was there to entertain them with his tricks and hospitality. Whilst just about all the employees at the hotel were brilliant Deneil really had that special X Factor which cannot be trained and came so naturally to him.We loved Sunset Cove and the Infinity Bar on an evening to see the sun set. Hoping to return in 2018.
Mr Anthony aquilina I went to the Grand Palladium Resort & Spa Jamaica as it was recommended as a good venue for a wedding and that was on the 3rd of April 2017 the wedding was was taking place on the 10 of April First I would like to point out that the hotel was was great and the staff were even better the staff of the hotel made our stay pleasurable .service was excellent , however now for the bad points, the Wedding the people that organise the wedding for me I thought were not forthcoming, and as far as I am concerned they took advantage of me and excessively over charged me for three things first was a D J that cost 1585 USD that I thought was too excessive and that was for five hours work all he had was two speakers and laptop secondly they charged me 800 USD for up lighting that were already situated around pillars when I spoke to organisers about this charge I did say to them DJ should bring his own lights they declined to comment excessive again and thirdly they even had the cheek to charge me for to bar staff for Two hours because they said they have to work on till 12am I must point out the we book the venue for six hours and that was 6 pm until 12 pm so those charges should not have been placed on my account l must also point out that when l disputed this with the wedding manager and the general manager of the hotel And this is 30 hours before the wedding you can basically take or leave it as I had brought 34 people with us to celebrate this very special occasion I felt I was bullied into paying that money heed my warning these people are not very nice I feel totally ripped of with all I can say excessive chargers what should have been a wonderful time for me made it a nightmare so be careful other people
Room was nice, grounds also, food excellent, warm greetings of the locals,but look for Talawah, a true Carabean pearl, showing local coking and much more.You will find her close the volley ball field.
To start this was the 6th time that my wife and I have been to Jamaica, and 12th time we've traveled the Caribbean in as many years. This is what we base our perspective from. If you've been to another resort such as Sandals, Beaches, or Iberostar (and liked it) you, like us, won't enjoy your stay here. If you thought any of those were bad, you definitely won't like this place.First, the airport transfer took way to long to leave the airport. We were on the ground at Montego Bay Airport standing outside at the bus terminal waiting for 45 minutes before we were even shown the correct bus to ride. From there we were another 30 minutes sitting on the bus waiting to leave.Second, upon arrival to the hotel, NO ONE seemed to know what was going on. The check in process was horrible. It wasn't slow. Slow would imply someone was doing something to get you checked. At times 3 or 4 people were behind the counter to check one person in. We didn't even arrive in one of those huge buses, it was 12 people tops. Third, it didn't take long for the hotel staff to offer us something to "feel alright". I get it, I'm in Jamaica, but I was also standing next to my children. I wish it happened just once. On the contrary it happened multiple times a day. The staff at the hotel also won't do anything to stop people from blazing up on the beach right next to kids under 10. Even if you say something to the staff you get a generic no worries youre in jamaica answer. I'm not naive to think people don't smoke pot at other places I've been in Jamaica, but when you have idiots who should but don't know better you expect the hotel to do something to curb it when its done next to kids. Forth, "complementary refrigerator" that gets restocked daily was pitiful. Even when you asked for more bottles of water they wouldn't send them. On the one occasion that they actually did deliver the water, it took 90 (not a typo) 90 minutes for them to deliver the water. We had all fallen asleep by the time they showed up. The refrigerator didn't even get cold. Fifth, the room had a layer of film all over it. Dingy and dirty is the only way to describe the room. Sixth, the gigantic pool was just as dirty as the room. First there are broken tiles everywhere. Especially in the places where your kids will swim. It is so bad that one of the kids in our group of friends cut their toe. If it wasn't the tile, it was the black mold or the green algae that was growing on the tiles in certain spots. Seventh, the food was decent but not great. At one of the restaurants we sat down only to find that they didn't have about half the things on the menu. It was literally easier for the waitress to explain what they had. The childrens menu is the same at every restaurant, and only after pressing the issue at times did the waiters and waitresses accept the kids ordering of the adult menu. Staying on the restaurants, one of the points that got upset was the fact that at our 60 minute check in we were told that there weren't any reservations possible at the restaurants. The night we wanted to go to Hibatchi however, we learned that it was the only exception to the rule. The staff at check in didn't even know the policy. Come to find out that the next night at a "no reservations" restaurant they couldn't seat us when dinner first opened because they had too many reservations. Go figure.Eighth, the sports complex was more like an archaeological ruin. The soccer field was a mess, and the miniature golf that they advertise was horrible. I probably should have known better consider the travel company i booked through doesn't even offer an email address that doesn't bounce back when you try to email them. When we booked, they said they had an exclusive concierge on site to take care of us before we left however if you weren't booking an excursion you were just directed to the front desk to get someone else to tell you that you're out of luck. I'm waiting to speak with someone before I publish their name.
