Our Opinion

One of the resorts found within the Palladium Riviera Maya Resort. This is a great luxury hotel that offers the all of the usual 5-star amenities. There is no shortage of activities to do around the resort. Facilities such as the spa and fitness center are well-equipped. The staff are incredibly helpful and friendly. Events and activities are always well organized. There is a good variety of food choices. However, be prepared to reserve early for a la cartes, as there are reports of long table wait times. This resort is relatively large, so it's well suited for travelers who do not mind walking long distances to venture around the resort grounds.

Nice Beach and Pool Areas/Lots to Do!

We enjoyed our stay at Grand Palladium. The resort is absolutely huge; be prepared to do a lot of walking! We had a standard, jungle view room and it was just okay, but housekeeping maintained it really well while we were there. There were too many restaurants for us to eat at while we were there, but the food was just okay in all of the ones we tried. Nothing really stood out as exceptional. We also spent a lot of time at the pool and beach, which were both beautiful. My only complaint is that there was no service in either of those areas. Love the hammocks at the beach! We loved seeing the birds, iguanas and other wildlife that meander about the hotel grounds.

Amazing Holiday & Friendly Staff!

This was my first stay at the Grand Palladium Kantenah Resort and I was extremely happy and impressed with the accommodations, the food, and especially the staff! My family and I were traveling with a group of over 20, and the hotel staff did a very good job of accommodating our large party. The rooms were clean, spacious, and well kept. The food was very good with a variety of options to choose from at the buffets and our family particularly enjoyed a very delicious and entertaining meal at the Sushi a la carte. The staff deserves special acknowledgment as they truly contributed to making this holiday so enjoyable. The Chelo's entertainment team were also amazing, namely Axel and Gabriel, and our bartender/ pool server Luis along with restaurant staff like Alfredo provided great service! Overall a very great trip and I would be happy to visit here again!

Staff was fantastic

Hotel and grounds were beautiful and well maintained. Pool and restaurants were fabulous and made even better by the extremely attentive staff, namely Maria and Alfredo. We also found the Chelo entertainment team to be amazing and they definitely made our stay and our kids stay MUCH more enjoyable. Special thanks and kudos to Gabriel and Axel who went the extra mile to ensure we were all included and enjoying ourselves. We will definitely be looking to book again next year.
