We stayed at the Grand Palladium for two weeks in June. We were put into the Kantenah which we were thrilled with as it seems much more modern than the Colonial. We were over the moon with our room as we had been upgraded to a Mayan Suite right on the beach. It had an outdoor shower and terrace with... More

An absolutely wonderful place to go, just as a couple, family or with friends! There is so much to do there and all the employees are extremely kind and helpful! All 4 hotels are free to roam within the grand palladium and it's not far from Akumal, Cozumel and Playa! An amazing place, would definitely recommend!

This was our first trip to Mexico and the tropics for that matter so this review will be in the mindset of people who are quite new to this area. When we got there, the check in was very smooth and the staff made the experience calm and inviting. The rooms were fairly good, although there are some problems we... More

Having stayed at this hotel in April 2013 we decided to return this year as we had a wonderful time with no complaints or problems. However I am not sure where to start, as we experienced so many problems during our stay from 4th July 2014. Bar staff were often grumpy and I agree with a previous review that if... More

It's sad that such a Beautiful Place to vacation can be ruined because of Extremely Rude Employees and the Management as well....This trip was for my Daughter and Son-In-Laws Dream Wedding. From the time we got to the resort, my Son-in-Laws Parents had trouble to get into a room, and they had arrived a day earlier. Then our rooms were... More
