The Resort is lovely - the rooms are nice and large, limited views however. The lobbies are only so-so but extremely clean. The Service is extraordinary. The service staff from the bellmen, to the waiters were fantastic. We have never received better service anywhere. Everyone is so friendly, happy and genuinely want you to have a good time. The service... More

My boyfriend and I just returned from a week long stay at White Sands. SInce this was our first all-inclusive experience, we do not have anything to compare against but I will break down our stay anyhow. This resort was amazing!

Went here with my boyfriend December 7-14th 2008. We both loved the resort and would highly recommend it to friends and family. We stayed in villa 58, which was ideal because of its proximity to the beach, to the pool and to the lobby and restaurants. There are a few villas that seem pretty far away from the action, so...

Our stay at white sands was on nov 21-28, 2008 The palladium has great service, excellent food n drinks, great beach and a... More

Our stay was GREAT! The room was beautiful and the facilities perfectly maintained! We had teens and 11 year olds, all of whom had a great visit! It was so great that the entire family voted to forego Christmas this year and go back! We're counting down the days - can't wait! Hope the salt pool is as wonderful as... More

We stayed at this hotel the week of Nov 21-28/08. Read lots of reviews prior to booking. Have travelled extensively over past 25 yrs, staying at 3,4&5 star resorts. Without a doubt, this was the best holiday we have ever had. Weather was a very comfortable temp of 85F and sunny every day, a little rain but only during night... More

This place was absolutely amazing! One would have to be very picky to rate this resort anything less a 5-star Excellent! Prospective travelers might be a little apprehensive about the long trip from the airport – it’s about an hour and a half but the week we had and the accommodations more than made up for it. The tour guide... More

I just got back from a week’s stay at the Grand Palladium White Sands on Sunday. Of course, I checked out the reviews on this site before going, and upon my return, wanted to reaffirm what most people have been saying. Great place. I would recommend this to almost everyone. Walking was a little overwhelming initially but as the week... More

We visited Mexico for the first time from 15 – 29 October. The White Sand turned out to be an excellent choice and we thought it the best out of the five hotels in the Grand Palladium complex, from what we could see. Overall, we had a true 5 star experience far exceeding our expectations – the only thing that... More

We spent 2 weeks at this resort in November, 2007, this has been our 3rd trip to this complex. The first time we stayed at the Kantenah, the second time at the Colonial and here the last time. We fully enjoyed all of our stays, but the last was the best. Staff are very friendly and service is excellent. Food... More
