The Grand Palladium is a beautiful resort located in the middle of nowhere Lucea, 45 minutes from Montego Bay.
There isn't much to do during the day besides swimming in the pool or hanging in the small poolside bars; the man made beach is for looks only as most of it full of sharp coral and rocks. I found that there is a swimming section at the end of Las Brisas beach. Oh, if you ant to have a drink be ready for tipping at least a dollar a round for 3 ounce glasses of beer and sub-par drinks. Now, I have been to all inclusive resorts and I know that tipping is a must, but in this resort, and sorry to say, in Jamaica in general it seems to be the only way to get people to do their jobs. For example, we always left a couple of bucks on the night stand for the maids and every time we got back to our room it was spotless with a nice heart made out of folded towels with rose petals; and the one day we forgot to leave a tip because we got up early to go to an excursion the room was not cleaned, the fridge was not restocked and of course not only was there not heart of towels, but the bed wasn't even made. I also saw the airport shuttle bus driver cursing at a passenger who did not tip him.
Of course there were exception and for the most part the waiters and waitresses at the a la carte restaurants were exceptional. The buffets' service? Well, that's different story.
