Our family of four (two teenage boys) visited in March 2014. We have been to a number of all inclusives before, but never a Grand Palladium, or other resort that is this large. We were very happy with the resort and the wide variety of choices. At arrival, there was a mixup with our room choice, but they went out... More

Reviews like this are a tough thing. It all depends on what your expectations are going in. It's like Vegas, some folks love The Golden Nugget and others expect The Wynn. This place is somewhere in between those 2. We went with another couple for one of their birthday presents. We did not bring kids and we went to sit... More

I'm going to give you the real deal. This is from someone who has travelled extensively (like most of us) and has stayed at 5 star hotels as well as complete dumps when "roughing" it. I'm also going to give the perspective from someone who has small kids. So this is skewed with that in mind. I have 2 girls... More
