I thought the hotel was a nice place. Staff was friendly except for some of the waiters. The food was mediocre but everything else was pretty great. The bartenders were amazing and probably the friendliest people in the whole place. Overall a decent place to stay.

Watchout for the "non-staff" staff

Great place is you can navigate the sharks selling excursions or "vacation shares" (new timeshare I guess) Hotel staff is EXCELLENT, and super friendly. The time share folks that assaulted us while waiting for our room even told us not to waste our time checking in with the Apple vacations rep because they were just going to try and sell us stuff. Ha!

Pretty good experience overall at the hotel. It was a beautiful destination and good weather. Food was good but nothing mind blowing. If I had to say anything it would just be that Apple told us to meet their rep at a specific time/location to schedule our transfer home and they didn’t show up. We had to call directly to schedule and we were under the impression that it was booked. But on the day of our departure , no one showed. The hotel graciously provided a cab to take us to the airport or we would have missed our flights.

The hotel does not match Apples stated claims. Hotel is run down, dead flies everywhere. Check in staff is less the friendly. Property is overcrowded and checking is difficult when it is busy. A wedding is held daily at the Hotel and makes for chaos. Pool area does not accommodate amount of guests booked. Constant battle for chairs at the pool. Our towels were stolen and security constantly at the pool patrolling . Indicates a problem. We have booked many vacations through apple and have never been disappointed until this time.

We love the Grand Palladium in Punta Mita. Although the resort is a little older than the other resorts in PV, the staff does an excellent job of keeping the facilities clean and up to date. Any issues (non-functional TV remote) were handled immediately and with a smile and an apology. The staff are what makes the resort what it is. Always a friendly 'Hola' as you pass by and an eagerness to help in any way possible. We love Matias at the adult pool bar! Thanks again for a wonderful trip!

We were asked if we wanted to upgrade to the Royal Suites, we accepted the offer for additional monies. Once upgraded, the rooms and service were excellent. There was a problem of communication of when a room would be ready. We were told 3PM then packed our stuff and met at the lobby, ( we stayed one night in regular room) it was a few hours before our room at the Royal was ready. The shows were so-so....but maybe we are spoiled. We liked the Grand Palladium, Riviera Maya MX much, much better

Very Lovely Stay

The lovely welcome with a fresh juice beverage at the reception desk was so nice. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful for our whole stay. We loved the free boogie boards and sandcastle buckets, etc. Loved playing in the waves on the beah and swimming in the saltwater "pool" for our daughter. Just a nice, relaxing place to stay. The food at the Mexican restaurant was excellent. The other restaurants we tried were fine, with the fresh-pressed juices at the cafeteria being exceptional. The only downside for us was the beds were quite small, more like a double than a queen. That was probably stated in advance and I overlooked it. Otherwise great stay! Highly recommend a daytrip into Sayulita by cab (about 25 minute drive) to check it out.

Wonderful, restful vacation.

Our recent vacation to the Grand Pallidium in Riveria Nyarit was above and beyond what we expected. There were no problems with our direct flight or transportation to the resort. The Grand Palladium is a beautiful, unique resort. The rooms are lovely, but most of our time was spent outside. There are 3 pools, our time was spent at the adult infinity pool. I can't say enough about the service at this resort. The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. The check-in staff called our room at least 3 times to make sure everything was fine and to see if we needed anything. I would definitely return to the Grand Palladium and would recommend a stay at this resort.

Missing the Mark

The staff was amazing. They were courteous, helpful and always positive. Loved them all. Our room left a lot to be desired. In the 21st century, we now require outlets by the bedside and a few more than a couple throughout the room. Our patio door was stuck and the curtain was unhooked at the hanging rod. It took them 2 days to correct this. They came by every day but always after 8:30pm when we were getting ready for bed. The shower floor was so slippery, it was very difficult to relax when showering. The beach...well there was none on our side of the hotel. It was all slippery rock. It was not all we had hoped.

absolutely love palladium pvr!

Stayed at the grand palladium puerto vallarta for a week, actually just got back, we had a great time! The employees at this resort are what makes this place so amazing. They go out of their way each & everyday to make sure you have everything you need. Resort is clean & beautiful, food at the restaurants is great. Beach is only thing I didn't care for, seemed dirty. But resort itself makes up for the beach. I'd be enjoying a margarita & next thing I new bartenders were already giving me a new drink to try & they make pretty flowers on top made out of fruit. The ribs & more restaurant is delicious & the employees are completely amazing. Arturo gil & omar made our experience amazing.on our last night they saved us a special table, gave us a champagne bottle, and even made me a wedding ring out of a dollar bill. I definitely recommend this resort & can't wait to go back. With service like the one palladium provides, it makes you feel safe & comfortable and they make you feel welcomed almost like your amongst family ( that you like) :) only thing I absolutely HATED, was when we first arrived at check in they pull you off to the side and start badgering you to join their club. First off we just walked in, tired,from a long flight, hungry,we wanna rest ,shower & relax,but nope they sit you down ,guy keeps going on & on trying to push the club,almost felt like he was getting defensive as I would speak. And than he kept bringing up my wedding ring saying how he's sure my husband paid a lot. Was just very classless & distasteful. Finally I'm like I'm sorry we're tired , would he have offered me to look into the club days later I might have been interested,because we truly had an amazing time here. Other than that this place is great! Great if you have kids as well.

We stayed at the Grand Palladium May,4 to 13th 2018 and it was a truly awesome vacation. From check in to check out we were treated like family. The buffet was great and the a la carte restaurants were fabulous. We stayed on the old royal suites side and our room and building were exceptionally nice and clean. Marcelino at the pool bar was just excellent, like an old friend. We spent most of our vacation on the beach and beach staff was the highlight of the whole trip. They made the experience memorable for us. I'm sad that I forgot the old timers name who keeps the beach spotless but he happily does the work of 3 men. Leo, Lisbeth, Omar, Antonio, Mario all give 10 star service and make you feel like family. They work hard, very hard to make sure you are having a great time!!! I just wish they could wear some cooler clothing. Dress shoes and heavy dress pants don't really fit in on the beach in my opinion. We will definitely be returning:)

We have just returned from what started out as a 2 week holiday but turned unto 25 days, my husband was in hospital for 12 days NO FAULT OF THE HOTEL. They and their staff were amazing, they helped and supported me in so many ways - I never felt alone in what was a very difficult time. They went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed day and night. Within minuets of me calling and asking for a doctor he was there. The food was amazing so much to choose from even room service, bar / resturant staff were very helpful. All the staff on customer services were extreamly helpful Marbel and Max you know what you did for us I can't thank you enough you will always be in my thoughts, as will they all. I would highly recommend Grand Palladium Puerto Vallarta to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday, set in beautiful landscape looking forward to going back once my husband has recovered.

An excellent resort!

My wife and I had a very enjoyable week at this resort. We couldn't have asked for anything better! Room was very clean and comfortable, No complaints with the breakfast and lunch buffet which had the usual selections, but food was really good at the (unlimited) a la carte restaurants, which also provided top notch service. Bar and pool service was always friendly and efficient with special mention to the following bartenders and servers:- Omar, Macario, Efren, Alfredo and Geovanny. You guys were amazing the entire week. Thank you! I would highly recommend the Grand palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa.

This was my first time at this resort. While it is away from town, it was still nice. I have stayed at many resorts in Vallarta over the years and this was a good one. All have different good things. Staff here is great. I wanted to try watermelon juice and simply asked if they had it at the nest. Instead of saying no, he found it for me or had someone make it. Loved that pool area there in front of family suites. Great view of ocean. Daughter did boogie boarding several times, and if you book in advance they will take you out on the Hobie cat boat for 1/2 hour just enough for me. We. I can't say anything about room service or room cleaners as we kept our do not disturb up the entire time but they did give me more towels, shampoo and conditioner when I asked. Food at all restaurants was good.
