Grand Palladium Jamaica
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
Nice property but not great. Big and spread out. Lots to do for kids of all ages. Pools and beach are good to very good. Staff, as always in our opinion in Jamaica, were excellent. Especially Chucky - thanks. Food is very good especially liked the steakhouse and Italian restaurants.
Well where do I start, I travelled with my wife and 2 x girls aged 10 and 8.Upon arrival we were greeted with a refreshing drink (which was well needed) checkin was quick and very pleasant.We'd requested a top floor room with sea view if possible and when we asked the reception staff they said that they recieved our request and wouldn't be a problem, the room was perfect and the best balcony view we've ever had. I enjoyed my morning coffee while watching the Fishing boats out getting there daily catch.Restaurants were all very good and the staff were very helpfull, apart from the Japanese which we reluctantly had to complain about but the way this was handled was outstanding. The hotel manager went above and beyond to make sure it was rectified and that we never had a bad meal again. (As I always say accidents and mistakes happen it's how they are delt with) and wow.Sunset cover where the jerk chicken Hut is was like a view on a post card oh and the best jerk I've had!! Pool was good, kids loved the slides in kids area and especially Avatar who went out of her way to make sure kids were having fun. (Hope name spelt correct 😂).Overall we would recommended this hotel and our thinking of coming back.
My friend and I (both in our mid 20s) decided to spend 5 days at the Grand Palladium this past week and I must say, the highlight of our trip was the staff members. From Jouevan (the bartender at the infinity bar upstairs) to Damoy (one of the entertainers), each and every staff member made us feel welcomed, excited and positive. Jouevan took care of us from the first night to the last, making us fun drinks and talking with us, making sure we were smiling the whole time. Unfortunately, we met Damoy the day before we left but he was so energetic, positive and funny - it seemed like we had known him from the start. He had us dancing and laughing from the time we met him. The resort itself is beautiful - we spent a lot of time at the pool swim-up bar in the days we didn't have excursions planned. Damion, Martin & Colonie were awesome bartenders, refilling our drinks without us even asking. Overall, the bartenders and entertainers truly made this a wonderful experience for us. They work EXTREMELY hard and do their best to make sure everyone's experience is great. Truly genuine and kind hearted people. My friend and I cried when boarding the plane! We didn't want to leave our new friends. I would definitely stay at the Grand Palladium again - so much fun! :)
It was a great experience. I would definitely go back again. People are kind, pools are nice, sunset cove is beautiful. Our room was beautiful suite Ocean Front in villa 14. The Al a carte restaurants were good to tried many things for the first time. Our wedding was beautiful we had it on the beach, a Sting Ray even swam up while we're finishing up our vows. Thanks for the Good Times! Ya Mon 😊
I researched extensively about where to go in the Caribbean on a respectable budget. I was mainly looking at Dominican Republic and Jamaica. Found a great deal for my wife and I to take a little late honeymoon here. It was very reasonably priced for everything including a private car to and from the airport in Montego Bay. It's a good 45 minute drive. There was very little wait at reception and we got into building 11 which is really close to all the main restaurants, buffets, pools, and conveniences. Our balcony in the junior suite faced west so had a great view of the ocean and not the noise from the pool and kids area. The people were polite for the most part. Nothing is perfect but it was better than I thought t would be. We are not VIP's but ate at Bubba's steakhouse twice in the week we were there as well as Poseidon and the Jamaican place. The Italian place and steak place were my wife's favorites. I liked them both too. We ate early like 5:30-6:30pm so had absolutely no wait. We ate a couple buffets for breakfast. We ate so much we kind of skipped lunch but they have food everywhere. Hotdog carts come around the pool along with ice cream carts. There is a buffet near the volleyball court with hamburgers and all kinds of stuff. There's also a jerk chicken buffet at Sunset Cove that's really good. You can always get food at the sports bar too. Wifi pretty much worked everywhere, even on the beach at Sunset Cove and it was always free. We went out on a paddle boat which was free at Sunset Cove and I went snorkeling which was free but had to leave a $25 deposit that you got back. We did room service a couple times and it was ok. The mini bar was stocked daily and we always had towels. I was worried about some of these things because of the reviews here, but we never had a problem. I even horded towels at first just in case. My wife uses alot of them. We used Real Jamaica tours for two small outings. Cleon was our guide both times and he was awesome. First was the Negril Beach/Margaritaville/Rick's Cafe tour and it was cool. We just went into Montego Bay a few days later to the new Hard Rock Cafe and some shopping. That was nice. Real Tours was way better and less expensive to get around than the onsite taxi service. Plus Cleon was great to talk with. We met several people that frequented other Palladium Resorts and from all over the world and a few of them said this was their favorite. We definitely want to go back. This place is family friendly too with lots of activities for kids. There was live music every night I think. We only went out a few nights because we were so tired but had a blast. Like I said, we will go back next year at same time to enjoy it again.
