Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Lucea
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 25, 2010

My husband and I stayed at the Jamaica resort. The Lady Hamilton was there as well. There was absolutely not 1 bad thing about the trip. The staff was fantastic, always very accommodating and friendly. The entertainment staff was too much fun. Sure the food was not five star quality but it was very palatable. The hotel itself was always very clean as were the rooms. Overall, we got more for our money than we even expected. I would definitely recommend this place to friends, family and colleagues.

The hotel itself is absolutely beautiful. However, the service was both frustrating and slow. Aside from a few genuinely good staffers that were willing to help, it was impossible to get the simplest things in our room - clean towels, a coffee pot for our coffee maker, and a plug for our jacuzzi tub. After repeated attempts to get these items, we would either give up or improvise. I have never been treated like a nuisance while on vacation at a resort by the staff; however, we felt as if we were just that when we needed to make any request. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone until they are under better management. Also, if you don't like waiting at a bar for 15 minutes everytime you need a drink, or an hour to sit down for dinner, then stay somewhere else!

I waited awhile to write my review, been busy over the holidays, but we have not forgotten what a great time we all had. Just bring your big cup for drinks, earplugs if loud criket noises bother you and enjoy, enjoy Enjoy! Like I read someone else write, don't sweat the small stuff, we do not live in a perfect world. Have a good time, we do not live forever!

Absolutely gorgeous! Did Ricks cafe $14 U.S & Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios $49 U.S. about 2 hours from the resort. Bring U.S. Dollars.
We had NO problems with towels. Had an absolute great time. Staff gives great fast service, and is very friendly. The one thing I can say about this resort is the entertainment staff is always involved. There is always something to do by the pool, aerobics, volleyball, ragge dance lessons, bingo, patois lessons, etc. etc.
Food was great, nothing to complain about, there was always something to eat. And the drinks, let's just say they don't go light on the alcohol. LOL! Had lots of cappucinos unstairs at the bar. Very Friendly staff and Loved Happy Feet & 007
I don't understand the snobby people that complain. Go with an open mind and just have fun! Oh we didn't get a towel. We had 3 towels in our room that were changed daily. So god forbid you're missing a towel, that's what ruins your trip? Common people, get real!! AWESOME AWESOME RESORT & PEOPLE!

I simply liked it! PRO: Large, well furnished room, full bathrooms with the bathtub and separate shower stall, daily services, food, entertainment. Everything was perfect! CONS: internet was only in the main lobby and was very slow. A bit too far from Montego Bay.

Just back from a one week vacation at the Grand Palladium. This resort is huge and very beautiful. We had 2 overcast days so the spa saved those days. They have a steam room, sauna, cold pools and supposedly a hot whilpool but it was more like luke warm. The rooms are very nice and each have jacuzzi baths. The problem with the shower in our room was that the drainage was no good so we'd end up standing in a pool of water which is kinda gross. Yes they are stingy with their towels but as soon as we asked for more, they'd gladly bring them with a smile. The buffet was good enough and the restaurants were pretty good. The Mexican, Streak and Indian were excellent. Wait staff in the restaurants were sooo nice. Staff do kinda expect tips so it's a good idea to bring US dollar bills. The beaches are man made so do not expect a long stretch of white sand. The sunset cove beach is the nicest and there's a decent jerk chicken hut there where you'll also find the paddle boats and kayaks which are included with the all inclusive. You do not need a deposit for them. They will just ask you to sign a waver. Best drink for me was the dirty banana. The infinity pool is beautiful and the swim up bar is loads of fun..especially when JJ bartends! Water aerobics also fun and offered at the infinity pool along with volleyball and other activities. The nighttime shows are ok but not spectacular. There is a mini casino which can be fun to stop in and a snack bar which serves food I believe 24hrs. The shawarma's are good..the burgers are a little pinkish and I didn't like em. The sports bar has pool tables, ping pong and ice hockey. Can get pretty smoky in there though. The fitness facility is ok for a short workout. We really enjoyed our stay at the Grand Palladium. Nevermind the all negative reviews and make the most of your vacation!

All of those negative reviews about this resort are ABSOLUTELY false! I went expecting at least one of the nay sayers to be right.This place by far was one of the best places that i have ever stayed..The food at the restaurants wasn't five star,but you could definitely enjoy it during ur stay..We had the pleasure of meeting a cab driver who didn't work for the hotels and took a chance on using him.His name was Omar Burchell.He was one of the nicest and most professional cabbies that i've ever met!! He drove us around 3 of our 5 days there and his prices are reasonable.Please if you want a trustworthy professional you can call him ahead of time or just ask for him @ the airport.His number is [--] or e-mail him @[--] you won't regret it. Ok back to the resort..It is a place that a couple, family or group would love..Some of the reviews just don't do it justice.If you don't want the hustle and bustle of the Hip Strip stay here! If you want party central right outside your door step, the hipstrip is for you.If you want to be treated like royalty and relax, but can take a little drive to the Hip Strip stay here!! The Spa is amazing as well!!!
