I just returned last night from a 6 night stay at the Grand Palladium. Everything was perfect from the check in to the rooms. The beds were firm and there were extra pillows in the closet. AC worked fabulous but as most said you have to keep your room key in it to work. Food was great! I loved eating breakfast at the blue lagoon overlooking the pool and the ocean every morning. We went to the jerk but at sunset cove once very good chicken and the beach is beautiful. We also ate 3 times at Bubbas steakhouse. My husband eats a lot so he ordered his steak with a rack of lambs and they accommodated his requests. No problem! We tried the Asian, creole and Poseidon for seafood & a great sunset our last night. Everything was great. I can't figure out why so many complain. No one asked for tips but leaving five dollars after great service at the dinners was highly appreciated. You would tip way more in the states at a diner so show a little respect. Most employees were super friendly and just a few were miserable like anywhere you go. Our mini fridge was stocked daily. We left a note and two dollars a day with a request for more diet coke, water etc. They had no problem leaving what we asked for. I guess the food can get boring if you only eat at the buffets. We left to go to the restaurants at 5:30 the earliest they open. The longest we ever had to wait was 45 minutes out first night. If you want a table fast get in early. The slackers were often the ones who complained about the reservation system and the waits. Drinks were plentiful but a dollar here and there never hurts. If you go expecting the world you will be disappointed. Only improvement I would suggest is better desserts and better food at the sports bar. Other than that everything was over the top. Carrie at the sports bar best bartender. He made my husband and I flaming Bob Marley shots! Go relax and leave your sense of entitlement home. :)
