We just got back from a lovely week at the palladium! the hotel is very well planned out and has pretty much everything one could ask for! Because we've been all over the carribean before, and to jamaica and were very nervous when we saw all the crappy reviews afterbooking! luckily none of them were actually justified.
Theresort is new, there are a few loose wires, cracks and 25 second power outages; however its such aspacious and luxurious property the minor details arent significant. in fact the property is so sweet that theres usually a wedding or 2 daily
the rooms are spacious, clean and pretty. they even provide you with an IPOD deck and a 32" plasma, and of course the jacuzzi.our maid was awesome! because its an ecofriendly hotel you need to actually request new towels and cleaning, which requires simply hanging a sign!!
the food is awesome, the a la carte dinners are unlimited unlikemost otherresorts, and are truly very good!we loved themexican italian and indian places..the steak house was the best hence the crazy line ups
the entertainment is pretty extensive: day time, kids stuff, nighttime theres shows and a live band.. really nice... 24 hour food atthe sports bar and beer....along with pool, sports, ping pong .... theres a disco, an arcade a faux casino with slot machines.. a nice variety of things to do! they even have a cute littlecigar lounge
the beach is relatively nice, not as nice as Negril but much nicer than other countries..if you goto sunset cove watch out for the holes in the beach those are crab holes..theres a bunch of them sllover sunset cove!
the staff were overall really friendly: tips arent demanded by them however like everywhere else, people appreciate being tipped for the good service they provide!everybody all around welcomed you and was really sweet and theres even security patroling the resort saying hello just to make everybody feel safe!
we didnt go in to the main pool but it was massive and there were a bunch of other ones!
the property is giant but we lived in one of the furthest buildings and yes it was an 8 minute walk to the lobby...but its JAMAICA besides if you are really lazy you can call a little cabby cart, or simply wait for one they go around every 10 minutes!
the only crappy part was that they werent good at front desk communication and we had to really flip out to get a late check out (our flight was at 9 pm and the standard check out is 12 noon, which wouldve left us roomless for 6 hours with our stuff) they do provide you with 'courtesy' safe and luggage lock up and communal showers..but they do accomodate late check outss if you really insist!
GREAT resort really recommend it!! it was spotless, upkept brilliantly and very well planned out!
