The Grand Palladium was as beautiful as we remembered it to be (this was our second visit). The food is great, the resort is kept so well-maintained and clean (it's impressive to see that there is constant work being done and improvements being made) and, as always, the Jamaican people are lovely. Once you've been to a high-end resort, most of them seem very similar to one another, with a few minor differences. The thing that makes this resort so attractive is the food is delicious (even in the daily buffet), the a la carte restaurants do not require reservations (it's first come, first served) and the people are absolutely wonderful, and never intrusive or pushy to join in on the activities, like some of the other resorts we've been to in Dominican, Cuba and Mexico.
The only less then stellar comment I would have is that the beach is a little rocky when you are entering the water but once you are past that area, it's fine. The water is nice and calm for swimming as you are in a little cove so the choppier water doesn't seem to penetrate that area. We spent most of our days by the amazing infinity pool anyway!
All this to say that we had an incredible time. Although May is considered the rainy season in Jamaica (?), we did not see one drop of rain. It was beautiful blue skies and sun for the entire trip! I would highly recommend this resort to anyone wishing to travel to Jamaica. If all the Grand Palladiums are as impressive as this one, we will definitely have to try out another Grand Palladium in the future!
