Wow, where do we start.. well let's start with the beach. Outstanding!! Beautiful beach with lots of palm trees and palapas, and so far the best snorkelling at a resort that we've had, this is my favourite beach! You can walk along the beach, and off the resort beach, it was unbelievably beautiful. We were getting down to the beach... More

We went here hoping for a place we could have some peace and quiet along with some fun in the sun and that is what we got! The beach is amazing with tons of spots and chairs to sit/lay and relax. The pools were very nice and big with lots of daily activities to do with the entertainment staff. Our... More

We first stayed in the White Sand section: Our room (Junior Suite) was spacious, comfortable and clean, the mini-fridge was restocked daily with water, pop and beer. I had read online that the beds were really hard: although mattress comfort is 100% a personal preference (you might despise a mattress I adore), there was nothing wrong with my mattress and... More

The Grand Palladium is enormous! The distance between your room, the restaurants, the beach, certainly help you burn off some of the extra calories you've consumed. The resort is too big and I was worried that it was going to be packed full of people but, as I was pleased to learn, it's nowhere near full capacity in early April.... More

Ok I have been to a LOT of all inclusives over the past many years and I've been to a few in the Akumal area so I will give you an honest, no holds barred review. The Palladium is basically 4 resorts in one with 4 lobbies. I know a lot of reviews say that they are 'shared lobbies' but... More

Two of the most relaxing vacations we have had were at this resort. From arrival, we felt pampered with Champagne and cheese and fruit tray waiting in our room. We brought friends the second time and they really liked the various restaurants and that we had access to the whole resort area. The bartenders seem to be having as much... More
