To celebrate our 15 year anniversary, my husband and I were supposed to be leaving for Mexico on Thursday, October 27th. Hurricane Rina was scheduled to hit that evening. At the last minute Wednesday night we decided to cancel our trip. As business owners we were not going to be able to reschedule our dates and take more time off. I was up all night Wednesday and most of Thursday trying to find something else for us to do. We decided to go to the Grand Palladium in Jamaica from Friday-Monday (short trip). This was my 2nd visit here but my husbands first to Jamaica. My husband LOVES Mexico! We usually go 2x per year.
The staff at the Grand Palladium is AMAZING! They really made our trip so much fun. From Lawrence at the pool bar to the entertainment team that never quits. All of the evening bartenders are attentive and so friendly they are like family. I have to give a special thanks to Jovaun, Gavin, Kamar, Michael and I cannot remember the other bartender that took such great care of us Saturday in the disco (sorry!) for making our stay in Jamaica so much fun!!!! My husband had such a great time that he is talking about returning here instead of Mexico.
I must admit the food here is not so great. This is usually a top 3 decision maker for me but the staff is so great it isn't so important to me here. Although the jerk chicken hut is DELICIOUS! If that were available all day i would eat that for all 3 meals.
Unfortunately even though I was a returning guest we had a room with a view of the street. Luckily we didn't spend much time in the room.
We have stayed at many resorts in Mexico and I must say the entertainment and shows at the Grand Palladium puts all of those resorts to shame. I love the fact that there is a live band at the Infinity Bar and a show in the theater.
I highly recommend this resort. If you see Jo (Jovaun) ask him for his special! I am still craving it!
