My family and I returned from the Grand Palladium Jamaica on 6/26/13. We spent 5 days 4 nights. We traveled with 2 kids ages 11 and 17. Another couple also joined us. When u arrive it may seem very chaotic but they have a system that is actually very organized. This is a mega resort so check in was decent for the amount of people that were arriving at one time. Front desk, I think his name was Oscar was very professional and informative. He worked hard to have both families in the same building. Our room was a one bedroom suite clean and spacious I think we were in building 21 close to the lobby. The other couples room appeared to be less dated than ours. Everyone satisfied and I am picky about where I sleep. Specialty restaurant were good dress code in effect husband wore pants and v neck t shirts some wore polo style shirts my son who is 11 got away with shorts sandals and v neck t shirts. Ladies wore sundresses, rompers and capris. Steak house packed. Jamaican restaurant awesome enjoyed it better than the steak house. Buffet awesome for breakfast ok at night. They have a kids club I believe open till 5. I will say 98% of staff had smiles on their faces and ready to cater to you. Everyone raved about sunset cove beach. But I didn't care for it. Even my 11 yr old preferred the beach closest to the main pool it looked nicer. Drinks on point. Ask for a "Jamaica smiles." We tipped the maid and at restaurants there was no pressure from the staff to tip they work hard. Harder than many of our fellow Americans that i have encountered in the states. Wash clothes were an issue one night but reading previous reviews I packed our own face cloths which did not dampen our mood when we didn't get them that night. Entertainment awesome. Night club was fun. Shout out to "street" my husband and his friends favorite bartender in the cigar bar. "Honey" one of the pop staff had an infectious smile. No elevators lots of stairs floors made of marble and if u have Knee issues this resort may not b for u. As much as u eat the walking is needed for digestion. I think your experience is what u make of it. This resort is way better than holiday inn sunspree and the staff take their jobs seriously. Go to jamaica with the no problem man attitude u will have a blast .
Our 17 yr old daughter met other teens there and looks forward to returning. I picked this resort because it looked safe and clean and that's the environment that was important for my family. Thanks grand palladium for making our family vacation special cause I can b difficult to please.
