After reading some of the negative reviews here I was a little nervous about our plans but all of my reservations proved to be unfounded. We found the entire staff helpful and very friendly, the rooms very nice, the buffets well stocked always and with enough variety each evening that we could've skipped the a la carte restaurants and just...

We just return from our Vaction Feb.24-Mar. 5th, 2007. This is our 2nd time that we have stayed at the Grand Palladium/White Sands, and once again we were not dissappointed for making this choice a 2nd time. Actually it was nice to return a year later, because we were able to see a big difference in the growth of the... More

Travel to the Resort Everything went smoothly getting to the resort. We booked through Apple and arraigned the Non-stop transfer to the resort, which got us there in an hour after arrival at the airport. Room Our room (White Sands Suite 5418) was fantastic. It was on the 2nd floor, which we thought was the perfect because we had lots... More

Got the red light at the airport. No big deal except they only had one woman checking everyone's luggage. We got on our bus and were pretty much on our way. Only one other stop at the Royal - adults only area. I had requested rooms for us and our friends in building 58 or 59, either 2nd or 3rd... More

This was a very nice resort. There are 5 resorts all in one, so it is very big. There is lots of walking, but they also have 2 trains that go around the perimeter of the resorts. If you stay at one of the resorts, you have access to all of the resorts, including meals. We stayed in the Royal... More

My family and I have been to Mexico several times (both Riviera Maya area and Cozumel staying at different resorts each time). I like to use trip advisor to get a sense of what a resort is like, but find that I have to weed out many types of criticisms that aren't really in the control of the resort or... More

Our family of 4 adults (sons ages 20 and 23) just returned from the Palladium White Sands Royal. We all had a great vacation, and wish we could turn around and go back today. After spending a great amount of time in this site, and reading mixed reviews, I was worried, to say the least, about what to expect. I... More
