Grand Palladium Jamaica
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I absolutely loved Jamaica and this resort. I was there for 5 days on a mother-daughter trip. My mom's first passport stamp!! Everyone was so friendly. We got our rum punch right away and the bell men were very accommodating and made sure we got to our rooms safely at night.The spa was great. Very nice facility. We asked for a room upgrade because the first room wreaked of sewerage and had stains in the tub. Our second room was much nice and a larger 2-room suite with two balconies facing the pool and the beach. Simply breathtaking. I'm picky about food but I have to say I never had a bad meal on this resort. Everything was delicious. We did two excursions and met some very nice people along the way. Just an overall great time, I would stay here again and I plan to come back with my husband next time!
We just got back from a long weekend at the Palladium, this was our 5th time to Jamaica in 2 years (we've fallen in love) so we figured it was time to do a review. We are in our upper 20s and visit mainly for relaxation and time together as a couple. Number one tip that helped us a lot was getting a taxi from the airport- we usually do amstar etc and book ahead but we never will again. $60 each way to Palladium and we were at the resort just over an hour after landing and a good hour before everyone else on our flight. As we got there around 1pm we checked in- changed into our bathing suits in the courtesy rooms right by the front desk and hit the pool and bar and grill and just relaxed there until our room was ready at 3.They will try to upgrade you at check in--the villas on the Jamaica oceanside run 11-18, with 18 being the furthest from the main area.. They offered to upgrade us to ocean-view for 30/night. I had seen on here $20/nt for an upgrade so I said either that rate or nothing and she ended up upgrading us for free but requesting a good tip in return. We happily obliged but we were still in villa 17 so before agreeing to an upgrade I'd make her show you on the map where your original room is and where you'd be upgraded to before paying anything. Rooms: 4 star, nothing fancy but huge tub and gorgeous view from bed if you get ocean view. Left a note requesting more of what we like in the mini bar with $2 and got it same day.Pool: 5 star- main pool is amazing- still a little chilly but not as bad as I was expecting after reading reviews. Honestly if you're worried about this not being adult-only, the loudest people at the pool were drunk adults-- never once were we bothered by kids! They also have two adult-only pools which were pretty deep and really nice and quiet and offered a completely different atmosphere but still same caliber bar. Beach: the beaches in the main area were nothing special if you're used to Negril but Sunset Cove was really beautiful and worth the walk at least for one dayDrinks: amazing! Ask for a "Jamaican Smile"Food: okay-- plenty of variety at the buffet and we were always stuffed by our main course at dinner. Italian was our favorite but we were never blown away and did get slightly upset stomachs after dinner each night Gym: good- had cardio equipment, a cable machine, a smith machine, a bunch of circuit machines, Dumbbells, mats, a free bar and plates you could load it with (maybe 300lbs worth) and Gatorade :)Overall: beautiful resort, don't miss the infinity bar over the main pool and Ms. Lou's next-door for amazing cupcakes and coffee-- this was our favorite spot and it didn't seem like many had found it. Wifi was pretty bad but we came to get away anyway-- if we came longer than a few days though and had to do work it would've been almost impossible. Service was mediocre- my fiancé pointed out that the only employees who actively engaged you were trying to sell you something (spa, vacation club, pictures), but no one was rude- just uninterested-- there's no way employees here and at Secrets/Sandals etc get the same pay so you can't expect the same service. In case anyone is considering other AI resorts here is a quick run down of the other 4 we've stayed at in Jamaica:1. Jewel Paradise Cove- loved. Pros: Small, amazing service and genuine interactions, great food and drinks, can't miss Hibachi performance, affordable. Cons: Average beach, far from airport 2. Secrets St. James/Wild Orchid- loved. Pros: beautiful resort, great service, amazing food, beautiful beaches, close to airport. Cons: more expensive 3. Couples Swept Away- with this ones location on 7 mile beach (absolutely gorgeous), complimentary pool floats, nice rooms, resort credits you can actually use in gift shop with no catch, free reusable water bottles, amazing sunsets etc. this one had the potential to become our go-to Jamaica resort but the service wasn't great which really turned us off as it's just as expensive as Secrets where the service is awesome. 4. Sunscape Montego Bay- no. Got a great deal on this so went for it but it was a noticeable step down from other resorts we've stayed at and for costing about the same as the Grand Palladium, it is nowhere near as nice as it was here.
Travelled 22/02/17 with wife daughter brother in law and sister in law for our silver wedding anniversayFrom the word go in vip arrivals and departure package with mobay club met whilst getting off plane by mobay staff straight through immigration and customs to club mobay fresh towel and first rum punch. Then onto hotel short coach ride, checked in and paid for sea view room in block 12 close to reception after seeing original room in block 18 a fair walk away so with my dinky knee well worth the extra 210 us dollars. Cleaning staff great all the staff in fact brilliant always ready to help with a smile from waitresses getting you drinks to pool man whilst on putting towels on and saving sunbeds for you. All restaurants buffet to one of the numerous al a Carter were brilliant. This holiday hotel is pure bliss and I and all my family including my 14 year old daughter who was not bored once would return at the drop of a hat. Anyone who says detrimental remarks about this hotel the Grand Palladium Jamaica resort and Spa must be very very very hard to please
Perfect vacation resort. My wife and I were totally happy with everything at the Grand Palladium. Weather was perfect, service was outstanding, drinks and meals were excellent. Everyone at this resort goes out of their way to keep you satisfied....Would recommend to anyone. Will go here again if we decide to travel to Jamaica again...We did upgrade to a room with an ocean view. Next trip we will upgrade to the suite.
This resort was very beautiful. The property was big and very clean. FOOD WAS AMAZING !!!!!! lots of variety for the buffet (breakfast, lunch, dinner). We were able to go to an al a carte restaurant every night we were there. Each restaurant was beautifully decorated and food was delicious. There was no wait time for us because we were told by the resort workers that it was not close to 50% capacity. The room was very clean. We only had a small issue with the stand up shower and the water changing from cold to hot water on its own and the water taking a while to drain. Other than that we had no issues with the room. We enjoyed the Jacuzzi very much lol. Pools were kept very clean. There was not much property that was on the beach but again that was not an issue for us.The staff made the trip worthwhile ! Everyone was so friendly and happy. Bartenders were amazing and friendly! Kudos to Roy the bartender who was close to the volleyball section, Tinesha who was walking around the infinity bar asking us for drinks, Jermaine the bartender at the Las Brisas bar, he made our last evening at Jamaica delightful ! The only set back I have, was that on the day of check - in we were told that we could get a late check out on the DAY OF check out. Reason for this was because our flight was late Saturday evening and check out time was 12pm so we wanted to stay in our room. The day of CHECK OUT, we were told that how we were suppose to go to reception the day before to request this. And there was nothing they could do for us except for us to pay $230 USD per person for a room for the day. No way would we do that ! We had told our Sunwing Rep Keisha, she was shocked about it and so was other workers at the resort. It was tough on us the last day in Jamaica because our flight was delayed and because of the situation of the late check out. Besides that, Jamaica was amazing. I would definitely recommend Grand Palladium to my friends and family members.
