To start I'll say I don't get the criticism regarding the size of this resort. If anything that's its appeal! We had fun getting lost in the many twisty turns paths between all the villas, lobbies, pools and beach. The beach setting is just spectacular. There's no other way to describe it. I'd never visited the Caribbean side before and... More

As somebody who isn't a big fan of all inclusive resorts, The Grand Palladium blew me away. I travelled with my twenty-three year old brother and parents as part of a family getaway and it was the perfect relaxing break we all needed. If you are looking to party hard, I would suggest looking elsewhere. This place is peaceful and... More

Just returned from 2weeks in this resort and it's been lovely. The resort is big but you have the cars that don't always run regularly but they are generally quite good and drivers polite. Only had one stroppy driver who moaned because we wanted to go from the White Sands end right through to the Kantanah side. You also have... More

The room was lovely - very spacious, comfortable and well kept. The staff were really friendly, pleasant and helpful. The whole Palladium resort is huge. Depending on where you are staying on the site, you may well have long distances to walk for the restaurants and bars. The weather at this time of year is unpredictable and you might get... More

This resort is huge! If you don't mind walking, you will have plenty to visit. We stayed at the Royal Suites which was for adults only. It included a great private beach that I never wanted to leave. You can also borrow equipment such as snorkel or paddle-boat near the main beach (which you can walk to from private beach).... More

Overall, excellent experience. Very cool being in such close, but not disruptive, proximity to local wildlife. Friendly and helpful staff. The room itself was fantastic, with free mini bar restocked each day (beer, soda, and plenty of bottled water). Food at the restaurants was superb. A few Things I wish I had known: Be prepared to do either a lot... More
