Grand Palladium Colonial Resort & Spa is located in Riviera Maya in the village of Akumal. This spectacular all-inclusive resort offers a paradisiacal setting embraced by lush gardens along a private beach of fine white sand bathed by the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Take a stroll around the environmentally-friendly green paths that have been carefully paved out and enjoy the impeccably kept gardens. Relax in modern and spacious rooms, pamper yourself at the state-of-the-art Spa, snorkel in crystal-clear waters, and enjoy a cocktail at any of the numerous bars located around the complex.

Relax in eight freshwater pools and one seawater pool around the complex, including one lagoon-size with Grecian columns, bubbling mini pools, and a children's pool. Two quiet pools are set in lush tropical vegetation, one beside the spa. Choose from nine a la carte restaurants around the complex, including Mexican, Japanese, Mediterranean, and a Steak House--and five buffet restaurants offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Additionally, guests can use any of the facilities and restaurants located in the four resorts of the complex, except those located at TRS Yucatan Hotel.

The Baby Club (children 1- 3), the Mini Club (ages 4-12), and Black & White Juniors' Club (13+), are just some of the entertainment options offered so kids can interact with other children their own ages and from other parts of the world. While the kids are being entertained, relax at the spa or work out in the fitness center. In addition to offering exclusive and personalized services (fee), the Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness Center also features a gymnasium with modern exercise equipment. Practice your favorite sport: volleyball, archery, soccer, paddle, and don't miss the shows, live music, and games every night at the theater. There is also PlayStation, pool, table tennis, sand castle, treasure hunt, and karaoke tournaments.

Nature lovers will enjoy the crocodile habitat with an exhibition of their feeding.

A good place to stay while visiting a trade fair
PM1412, Luxembourg

This is a good place to stay while visiting a trade fair. Very comfortable and spacious rooms in an old residential house near the Messe (City Cube) / Charlottenburg (1km), but located in a residential zone, and by this, very quiet. Breakfast is multipurpose and pleasant Wi-Fi is free. It is a bit far away from the centre of Berlin, but the U2 runs nearby. There are a few restaurants nearby. Anyhow, the staff was very friendly and the place is clean and comfortable, if not super modern. I enjoyed my stay there very much, just what I was looking for.

Decent hotel close to airport

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to the airport and decided to go for Villa Kastania because on Booking.com it was mentioned that the hotel had an airport shuttle. Well...the shuttle was not really what we expected. When I inquired about the shuttle the hotel wrote me back that you have to reserve the shuttle and that there were costs involved. When I asked how much it was, they said I was too late to reserve it anyway, because it needs to be reserved at least a week in advance (I messaged them 4 or 5 days before arrival). So basically they don't really have a shuttle... We ended up using Uber and that worked well :) The room was nice and large, especially the bathroom! We didn't have breakfast because we had to leave early in the morning. But since you had to pay a lot for it we wouldn't have used it anyway. There is a U-bahn within walking distance which is nice! There are a couple of restaurants in walking distance too but not a lot of choice.

Great Hotel for the price

Booked the hotel due to walking distance from the Messe Berlin and a low price. It was better than expected, a large room, with a separate kitchen area. I was on the ground floor and it was quiet as it is off the main road. It is close to transportation if you are there for a long stay, an Uber to the centre was around €10. The only negative is if you like thick bath towels bring your own, the bath towels were really thin.

Now this is a Hotel worth Staying in!!

We went for a junior suite as it was only €20 extra and as it was a quiet time we ended up having the whole spa to ourselves!! The staff were amazing, the beers delicious. We didnt take breakfast or food but the surroundings looked very nice and pleasant to eat in. The pool was small but lovely with jacuzzi jets in the pool. Lounge chairs around, water to refresh, robes and slippers and even an outdoor garden to relax in adjacent to the pool.

Quite expensive for what you get.

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2017. We booked an apartment with a balcony, which was more expensive, but we thought would be nice. We didn't book breakfast, but did eat there one morning. Breakfast was very expensive, I think 19 euros each. Choice was very limited and coffee was luke warm. Rooms were okay, but overpriced for quality. They were clean and bathroom was nice and large.
