My boyfriend and I travelled to the Grand Palladium - Montego Bay from June 5th-12th and it was our firs time to Jamaica.
I was kind of skeptical when reading previous reviews not knowing what to expect so I had an open mind going down.
This resort is absolutely stunning and HUGE. We stayed on the Grand Palladium side Villa 19 which was a far distance to walk but worth it at the same time. This resort is the biggest resort in Jamaica and you'll see it for yourself.
The weather was super HOT so you need to take lots of sunscreen as the sun is definately a lot stronger. It rained about one day for about an hour, but everyone enjoyed the music and just danced away by the pool.
The infinity pool by far is the biggest pool i've ever seen. I travel a lot and this pool was something else.
The beaches were incredible. We checked out the beach at Sunset Cove where lot's was happening. You could snorkel, wind sail and paddle boat. The water was crystal clear and the Jerk Hut was amazing!
The food over all was great. We ate at the buffet once and had dinner at the a la carte restaurants located on the upper level of the resort. By far the best had to be the Xamaican (caribbean food) and the Indian restaurant.
You dont have to make reservations but I recommend you do as we were able to walk right in and others had to wait to be seated. Reservations can be made up by the front desk at the "guest relations" desk.
The rooms were HUGE. One tip that I learned from reading previous reviews is when you leave your room, make sure you leave one room key in the slot near the light switch when you enter your room in order for the air conditioner to stay on. Since they give you two keys always leave one in the room or else when you take out the key, the AC turns off.
Our room was super cold and it was great.
Our maid was Jennifer Rowe and she was great. We left her tips everyday and she did a great job of leaving us extra towels and flowers on our bed.
The weather is super HOT and humid so make sure you stay hydrated.
One more thing I recommend is that when you go, invest in a bubba keg mug as it will be worth it. The drinks come in small plastic cups so you can limit yourself the number of times you go back to get more. This was the best idea ever, almost everyone had one. If not, you can purchase then at the resort gift shop.
The staff was incredible. We became really close to Michael, Omar and Tennant who worked in the morning at the Mo-Bay breakfast buffet aswell as lunch and dinner.
They are the most down to earth and layed back people you will ever meet. Everyone loved us as we interacted well with them all.
The entertainment at night was also great. A ton of dancing which was awesome and a lot of audience involvement which made it so much fun to watch.
Overall this was an absolutely amazing trip and I highly recommend this resort to everyone.
We will definately be back without a doubt :)
