CLEANLINESS/ROOMS: Overall the rooms were very clean and the maids were constantaly cleaning the room. They provided you with new shampoo, soap, etc. when you ran out. The rooms were spacious and I really enjoyed the shower and jacuzzi tub. The beds were fine too; and in a Jr. Suite the have 2 queens and a pull-out couch so many people can fit. The sheets were noisy when someone turned over at night, but it wasn't a huge bother to our stay.
SERVICE: Serivce was pretty okay but you have to remember you're on JAMAICAN TIME. They don't do things right away but it wasn't a problem what-so-ever. They could of had more pool service; but they have a nice bar and a swim up bar which was convienient.
The best waitors was the one at the Blue Lagoon was Chantay; so ask for her. Also Telisha was really good; and she worked at the Blue Lagoon also. The 2 bartenders to go to are the ones between the Creole and the Asian restuarants; they were the 'party' and very friendly and fun!
FOOD: The all-inclusive really made my stay pleasant. The unlimited drinks were good. You have to try the Dirty Banana and the Chocolate Monkey. They were amazing. They had a good selection of restuarants ranging from Mexican, Indian, Italian, etc. But remember there's always the buffett! I really liked the selection of breakfast; you have to try the pastries and omlets there. The food was very good considering you could eat whenever you liked.
LOCATION: I always forgot we were on a SEA and not the OCEAN'; but it was still nice because it was on the water. It was about an hour drive from the airport but it was well worth it. The location was amazing!
SECURITY: They were always on the clock and were hidden easily. They were always ready for whatever may happen.
POOL: Half of the tiles on the bottom foor and other places were missing. Kids and adults were constantly pulling up huge sections of tiles. And a few have actually cut they're foot on them: but hopefully they'll be fixed by summer. The pools were spacious. They had a huge infinity pool and another one next to it. They had one kid pool in the Kids Club and 2 adult pools on each of the sides of the resort. They were very nice and not too crowded. Also we never had a problem finding pool/beach chairs. They were always availble and you could sit pretty much anywhere. You could only get how many towels as were the number of people in your party. They have towel cards you exchange for towels and you can get clean ones whenever you like as long as you return the old ones, which was nice.
ACTIVITIES: The activies at the pool area were fun. They always had something to do. They had bocce ball, mini-golf, beer drinking contests, volleyball and pingpong tournaments, beach volleyball, trivia, bingo, etc. The best was water aerobics; which were very intense with all-around staff memeber 007 leading the way. You can win rum for winning bingo and other activities, and you collect your prize around 9:00 at the theatre.
THEATRE: I loved the theatre at the Lady Hamilton part of the hotel. It was very entertaining. The dancers were really good and entergetic. On Fridays they have the Silver Bird Steel Band which was really good also. The best activities memebers were Energizer, Happy Feet, and Lady Diva. You should really get to know them, they are enjoyable to have around. The 2 hosts were Mr. Go and Dr. Dre which were also hilarious and ran the theatre every night, along with the towel hut, trivia and other day-time activities.
It was hard to say goodbye to this hotel; because all of the staff became like our second family for the week we stayed. I will definitely will go back to the Grand Palladium, Jamaica hopefully in the next year or so. This was the best vacation I've ever been on in my life and I recommend it to everyone looking for a nice vacation.
