“What a Wonderful Resort & Island!”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

This was one of the best vacations we have ever had. Every one on the island was so friendly!

Bring a large cup unless you want to take multiple trips to the bar. Tip, you don't have to throw a lot of money to be treated like a king, but you have to be willing to come off the green. Once you do, you will have the best service of your life.

Beautiful Beach!!! Nuff said!

Fun activities every day of the week.

We absolutely can't wait to go back to Jamaica....hopefully sooner rather than later!

It was my first time going to Jamaica ever! At first I didn't know what to think, as soon as I got to the grand palladium we knew from the minute we got there it was going to me an experience we would never forget. During I stay we did activities every day with the entertainment staff they were so fun and so friendly, they made our trip worthwhile and we have grown really close friendships with all the entertainment staff. The bar staff and food staff were so polite and welcoming we would of never of thought of a better place to be. Every day up until the pageant all the staff helped us get prepared for this big event. The dancers where amazing with us they rehearsed every day with us to make sure everything was perfect they all amazing. The final day came and everything went perfect we are hosting out united nation international pageant at the grand palladium Jamaica resort and spa again next october. It's been that good we are going back in 6 WEEKS TIME because we enjoyed it that much! Weare so excited to be going back flying all the way from ENGLAND! Our rooms were right next to the pool bars and restraints. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND the grand palladium jamaica resort and spa! Please to guys you will have an amazing experience and create memories for life and friends for life like we have. Thank you to everyone at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Jamaica resort and spa we love you all and we will see you very soon! All out love from England! <3 xxxxxxx

I have been on many long haul holidays and the first time I went to Jamaica I fell I love with the country, the culture and the people. It is one of those places that isn’t just a ‘holiday’ it becomes part of your life and your soul.

Staying at the grand palladium gives you a sense of all areas, relaxation, water sports, fun around the pool, partying....whatever you want.
Grand palladium is a nice hotel, 3 of us shared a room and there was plenty of space for us and all of our luggage! The hotel itself could use a little updating however they are making improvements each time (I have been here 4 times and my friends 6 and seen changes each time) The beaches are all looked after extremely well and there is plenty of space near the pool for relaxing and down at Sunset cover for a mixture of peace and quiet, POP entertainment and watersports…. The pool is cleaned everyday thoroughly; the staff are always making sure its in pristine condition. The only thing we had a problem was, was literally just not having enough towels in the room – once we asked for them they made sure we were well stoked throughout the holiday.

The food at the resort is amazing. There is enough choice for even the fussiest of eaters!! I think we ate in the buffet, Chinese and bubba’s the most….. all you can eat…you will want to take advantage!!!!

The bar’s inside and out are always clean and tidy and the bar staff are lovely.

Really can’t fault anything.

What deserves the most praise and what I think makes the holiday at Grand Palladium is the entertainment staff. Some places I have been have had awful teams that don’t care whether your having a good time or not – here in Jamaica the Entertainment team are always there to help you if you need it, are there to make your days even more fun and your holiday even more amazing.

There is a teen’s club, kids cove, staff always in the gym, sports centre and around the pool and beach so you’re never too far away from fun.
I think the most fun for adults is found around the main pool. I literally laugh all day long when I’m with the ENT crew. There are all sorts of things to be doing, they hold volleyball and football tournaments, basketball games. They have treasure hunts and sandcastle games for the kids (or adults). Water aerobics, bingo, dance class, drinking games literally anything and everything that you could imagine. There is never any pressure to participate but its so much fun when you do., and always a bottle of Rum or 2 up for grabs. The team is like a family and they never think twice about inviting you to join the group and spend time getting to know you. We spend most of our time by the pool with the likes of Buttercup, Honey, Sunshine, Princess, Happy, Zena, Spoon, Tuggrass, Ntune, Triple and Pudgy. They are the nicest most talented and loving group of people you will ever meet and really truly make staying at the hotel perfect.
If your lucky you will get the chance to see the girls dancing and the guys performing – you do not want to miss this!! NTune, Spoon and Tugg are crazy talented and the girls will teach you a thing or 2…these girls Dance, Sing and are just unforgettable.

This group of amazing people are always there if you need them and as I say always have something going on to keep you having fun whilst in Jamaica. They also hold evenings such as the POP party, White party, couple night (hilarious!) and Beach Party where they will dance into the night and party with you. The dance team put on themed shows that the Guys mentioned also take part in. There is something for everyone here, especially with this team!!!

I have been lucky enough to make some wonderful friends over time in Jamaica and thanks to them each and every holiday I have had there has been unbelievable happy, perfect and full of fun. Its so hard to leave them behind but Jamaica is the place of Dreams and I am already planning my trips for next year!

If you are toying with the idea of going to Jamaica and want to stay somewhere that has a bit of everything and a group of people that will take your holiday to another level, leaving you with friends for life – go here… it wont be a one trip holiday, you will return time and time again.

This was my first trip to Jamaica, and I have to say that the trip was so wonderful it made me feel like I could return every year if possible. I travelled with three girlfiends for my 35th birthday, and we all regretted that we did not book the trip for more days! The Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton is an absolutely beautiful resort. When we were shuttled over from the airport, many repeat travellers "ooo'ed and ahhhh'd" at the resort as we pulled up and asked for the name of where we were staying. I never experienced a single rude staff member. All of the staff were extremely accommodating from the housekeepers, lifeguards, food servers, bartenders, bellmen, check-in, spa and beyond. The level of service was exceptional and it alone would be reason enough to return to the Lady Hamilton. We had a wonderful guest relations attendant named Shenique who booked us to visit Dunns Falls, Rick's Cafe and visit the mosoleum of Bob Marley. These excursions, while a good distance from the resort, allowed us to see other parts of the country (Ochos Rios and Negril). It also allowed us to visit some of the small food vendors along the way which by far provided the best food we had on the trip (stewed chicken, something that is similar to steamed greens, and fried dumpling is something typically eaten for breakfast). We had our share of jerk chicken and pork...the authentic food stands outside of the resort are significantly more spicy that what you will get at the resort. The excursions were wonderful...we enjoyed them all...except that the beaches in Negril are full of vendors that harass you to buy things, so that you can't really enjoy the beach. But Rick's Cafe, Dunn's Falls and visiting the burial site of Bob Marley were fantastic ventures that I'll always remember.

The Lady Hamilton is a large resort, so if you don't like walking a lot, you may be annoyed...however, we found that the bellmen (like Ricardo) were more than happy to take us wherever we needed to go in a golf-like cart if the walk was too far. The only thing we didn't get to enjoy was the steak house that everyone raved about. It was only open for one night while we were there. There was a 30-40 minute wait, which we passed on, but didn't realize that it wouldn't be open for any of the remainder of our stay.

Overall, this is a very affordable, clean, beautiful resort with a wonderful staff. You are guaranteed to relax and enjoy yourself. Yeah Mon!


It is a very large resort...however if

We went to this resort for our honeymoon and were very glad we went there. We spent quite a bit of time researching the best place, looking at pics, reading reviews and am just so happy that we went to the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton. The staff was amazing, especially Derron at the buffet and Rhori at the Poseidon Restaurant, they were the best staff we met there. They always made sure everyone was well taken care of and was quick with everything, Great job guys. We have already started at looking at a date to go back here as we absolutely loved it. The grounds were amazing, the beach was perfect at Sunset Cove, the food never disappointed, the entertainment at night was good, our room was huge and was always cleaned for whenever we returned to the room if we wanted to go back and hang out due to weather. There was always something to do and the spa was one of the best we have ever seen. We had a couples massage and both of us left feeling just so relaxed. We didn't want to leave at the end of our trip and we have already recommended to our friends and family to go here.

2 adults and 2 kids, ages: 3 &5. For us this is the first trip to Jamaica and 9th trip south, Caribbean. This place is super good and people make you very nice. Kids loved it too. We were swimming in the ocean all the time. Water was very warm. We are going back for sure. This hotel is very quiet place to stay and we loved it. It is very friendly and family place to go.

Room Tip: We stayed in building # 28. It was close to kids play place.

We've just returned from 2 weeks at the Lady Hamilton and what a fab 2 weeks we've had. Excellent accommodation - good powerful shower, great bed and a choice of pillows. We were in block 37 which was really well placed for Sunset Cove beach, spa, pool, restaurants etc and a view of the sea.

Despite what others have said, we found the service to be warm and friendly and nothing too much trouble. I would go as far as to suggest it is maybe the way some folk talk to the staff that may produce a less friendly and attentive service and having witnessed some 'attitude' from other guests, frankly I wouldn't feel much like smiling if I was that staff member!

The food in all the restaurants was excellent but we especially liked the Indian visiting it twice whilst we were there.

The entertainments crew work really hard and can still be seen late into the night in the main bar, dancing and entertaining guests.

All the bar staff were fab, know what you like and keep it flowing whether a diet coke or something stronger. Sunset Cove bar staff always had time for a chat (thanks Marvin & Dexter) and the bar staff in the main bar in the evening not only served some amazing cocktails but were an entertainment crew themselves with some great singing and dancing as well as great service.

Good snorkelling off Sunset Cove beach, plenty of fish to see - top tip, take some bread in the water with you and you'll soon be surrounded by all sorts - but take some wet shoes with you as there are a lot of urchins. Nothing to be worried about if you've got your shoes on! They also do good trips out to the reef for the more adventurous snorkeler but not essential as plenty to see off the beach.

We made good use of the spa and had a couple of excellent massages as well as using all the other facilities - it's also a good alternative to the beach or the main pool (which is massive!) if you want to sunbathe and swim in more tranquil surroundings.

Another recommendation is to hire Stephen the local taxi driver to take you out for the day to see the real Jamaica - $100 and he and his taxi are yours for the day. He'll take you wherever you want and is a lovely man with a wealth of interesting history to share with you. As well as taking you to all the usual sights he'll take you to local restaurants and bars if you wish, a really good day out without being herded around like sheep!

I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone considering it, just one word of caution - we went 'off peak' and as with any large hotel things could be a little different when full to capacity in peak season???

Room Tip: The blocks near Sunset Cove are close to the beach and watersports and the adult only beach
