Our Opinion

This popular resort is rated 4.5 stars by some operators, but many rooms are now in need of a thorough cleaning, so we give it a 3.5 star rating. The beach area here is great for water sports like boogie boarding, surfing and snorkeling. There are a lot of hills and stairs so getting around may be an issue for those with mobility problems. Good food along with friendly restaurant and bar service. Lots of families at this resort but there is also an amazing adults only infinity pool. Great for couples and families, singles might want to be closer to town. This would be a much better resort if the rooms were nicer, but still a very popular resort. If you want something nicer, try the sister resort next door, Royal Suites Punta Mita.


Located about an hour from Puerto Vallarta and at the north end of Riviera Nayarit, the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa features excellent amenities and renovated facilities with an impressive setting overlooking the Pacific ocean. This resort features a lush jungle backdrop and secluded coves rather than a broad sweep of beach; an excellent choice for vacationers looking for seclusion and relaxation in a self-contained hotel.

The Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa has been completely renovated, including guestrooms, lobby, some restaurants, Spa and recreation areas including Children's Clubs. Rooms here are comfortable and offer impressive views overlooking the the stunning Bay of Banderas. A different nightly entertainment show and a wide range of water sports are other included features that make the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort and Spa a superior choice for a memorable and relaxing Mexico vacation.

Location: Beachfront in Riviera Nayarit, 60 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta, 15 minutes from Bucerias and 40 minutes from the Puerto Vallarta airport.

Good Bad and the Ugley

The GoodThe general staff is a pleasure to deal with, Good air conditioning, Good choice of food, Great location, Excellent beach safety and plenty of equipment to play with an excellent new year’s eve partyThe BadOur First room had a dirty shower, broken shower holder & not enough hot water. The shows were poor and this was a shame as the dancers were putting in a lot of effort. Flat or the incorrect drinks were constantly served at the stage bar and we gave up ordering them in the end. The restaurants are a pain to book, Cold Buffet food and half day wasted with a guided tour of the Pavilion Hotel sales pitchThe Ugly3 out of the 4 British guests we spoke to had to move rooms due to major noise issues(Us included). Some even had to pay more to get some piece and quite.

Great Vacation

Was down to the Grand Palladium for a wedding and had a blast! The pools and beach are amazing. Ramon at the Relax Bar at the adult pool was awesome and made the trip. Would definitely return in the future!!

Middle of the road for an All inclusive resort

This was not a bad hotel but it also was not a fabulous hotel. We were here to celebrate New Years and I guess if you were really into seafood you would have been impressed with New Years dinner but I dont eat seafood. The food was so so, we did not enjoy buffet dinners but then the ala cartes were hard to get in to almost like they did not have enough staff. All the staff were friendly and helpful. We spent our days at the adult infinity pool which was nice and relaxing but they should open up the Mexican restaurants for lunch because who wants to walk all that ways to the buffet every day or up and down all those stairs for the snack bar. If you have any mobility issues this is not the hotel for you. Matais the bartender at the adults pool made wonderful Mojitos for us every day and Yesica and I think her name was Gabriola (?) kept us hydrated by bringing us the Mojitos. We did spend our evenings at the Hemingway bar and the bartenders in there were very good with Erick being one of our favourites ( such a nice young man). We wont return as the Mayan side is more our preference as it has the nicer beaches and water and after spending 10 days at the Royal Playa Del Carmen last November this does not compare in any way.

Private yoga with Tania

Absolutely beautiful resort and the staff were incredibly friendly. Booked a private yoga lesson with Tania on the beach which was a wonderful experience. I highly recommend this resort to all yogis!!!

Second visit to a lovely place

My partner & I stayed here during the first week of January 2017. This was our second time.It's a beautiful spot, away from the hubbub of PV, surrounded by nature, with a private oceanfront. Everything was great as it was two years ago: staff, our room, the food, beach & ocean, nightly entertainment, and the infinity pool (which to our surprise, had to ourselves one evening).Our only beef: neverending Elton John & Frank Sinatra (even though we like them). I know others were getting weary of it too, and so unfortunately, private ghetto blasters started popping up. This only made things worse of course. By day 6, I guess management paid attention and started playing other music as well.Overall, It's definitely worth the $ and we would return again.
