I’ve been to the resort last year and the year before at punta Cana. I like to say Pumta Cana the customer service was top notch. Last year here in kanetah I had an issue and the manager was very rude.( they claimed I didn’t pay when I’m fact I had my receipt) We had already made our wedding plans and decided to try it again. Let’s just say it’s our 4 day here and all of our guest are having a terrible experience . From being told they did not pay, being placed in a different part not booked, being told if you want milk for your baby to get a taxi, waiting to eat and being ingorned. I am so upset and the staff is aware and have not received an apology instead I had a very rude encounter with someone in the check in office. He quote on quote said you are not the one who booked so I don’t answer to you . (When they are my guest for my wedding and did not understand what he was saying , which is why I was trying to tell him what was happening ) instead he said why don’t you get water. Passive aggressive condsendimg tone in front of everyone . My soon to be husband had enough . He is making a detail listed complaint to corporate . I would just like to warn people the service is bad. No good morning greetings, no open doors, if you want a ride to your room they ignore you. And worst of all no apology or try to make it better. The beach and pool are beautiful just like every other place. So don’t go by the pictures. You don’t want to be upset at your stay like all 27 of us.

Perfection Attained!

Resort was sheer perfection. Everything from the suite, to the staff and of course the dining was fantastic. The Mayan suite is pure heaven, right near the beach and just beautiful. The Eldorado steakhouse and Ribs and More are fantastic restaurants with great service. Try the angus rib eye or the lamb chops, my favorites. I would like to personally thank Irvan and Rodrigo at the La Jarra beach bar, and Alfredo our minibar service person for their outstanding service and friendship shown to my wife and I.

Everything at your finger tips.

We went there with my son's family and enjoyed every minute. Trolley's took us to the main lobby and all restaurants on property. All inclusive, buffet breakfast's with anything you would want. Lunches were mostly simple but excellent. Dinners at six of there restaurants on property were amazing, food was outstanding, presentation was top notch as was the service. Many pools, both semi private or large pools for everybody. Private beach to lounge on, drinks brought to you anytime you wanted one. Gulf of Mexico was out standing, clear with fish swimming about. Plenty of entertainment and shopping. Rooms were spacious and kept cleaned. Highly recommend a stay there.

customer service needs training

The resort is clean and beautiful , the customer service is awful, been going to Riviera maya for years, this resort was first time and last, Manager needs training . Never have I seen so much rude interaction with guest at any resort. as I and many others witnessed at this place, We meet some great people (guest) that also said never again, We went with 12 others, and each had some really rude interactions with staff at all levels , so disappointed, so if you have not yet chosen your resort keep looking. I'm not high maintenance person, just want to be treated with respect and get what I paid for and offered/ promised . 4 stars for the beauty 1 star for service

5th time to Grand Palladium and it is better than ever. Special thanks to Pedro Zavala for going out of his way to take care of us on this trip! The new TRS section was incredible, the service impeccable, Diana in the TRS lobby was very attentive, Omar was always there to help us, we couldn't have had a better stay thanks to the staff!
