Good holiday resort
nurse137, Birmingham, United Kingdom

Was slightly nervous having read mixed reviews but having visited I now understand why the variation in the reviews . The standard of service in the restaurants was very hit and miss particularly at breakfast - however when complaints were raised to management ( and there were a lot during our stay ) they did react and address the lazy attitude of the servers sadly they soon slipped back to the norm. However I have to say there were two members of staff who provided first class service throughout our stay sadly I have forgotten the name of the barman in Hemingway but first class guy and also Armanto Gutierrez in the buffet. The food standard was ok - yes repetitive but there was plenty of choice to mix things up . Tried all the restaurants and our favourite was Bamboo but this is a very personal choice I'd say give them all a go. Hotel is about 40 mins from the town and taxis cost 260 factor this in if planning any trips as no tour buses pick you up from any of the hotels . Only did the adult pool which was fairly quiet - snacks served to your bed ( a great touch) and attentive bar staff - a credit to the hotel. Didn't do the other pool but seemed fairly busy . Stayed in block 3 which although a walk away from the pools was nice and quiet during the evenings . Room was spacious and kept clean with re stocked fridge . On the whole good value for money and my advice is if you encounter a problem speak to the management as they will do their best to rectify . More>

Great holiday!

Had a blast, great staff, generally good food. Not to impressed with the rooms could do with updating and better finishings! But great bed big room, how much time do you spend in there anyway! Would definitely recommend the Royal suites if your traveling as a couple without kids! Very peaceful and relaxed. More>

Great experience - if a little far from excursions

We had a lovely 2 week holiday at the Grand Palladium. Albeit there was some confusion as to which room we should be in. This was resolved satisfactorily. The restaurants were all good quality and you could choose buffet or a la carte. We never had any food from the beach / pool facility, so can't comment on that. Also being more beach orientated than pool, we never used the pool. There was a great variety of excursions on offer all at an additional price. This is expected and we got 3 for 2 deals on excursions. Vallarta Adventures are a fantastic company and very well organised and staffed. The only downside was that each trip to the excursion centre cost 260 peso, roughly £10, each way. This was due to the distance of the resort from Neuvo Vallarta, and downtown. If you are adventurous as we are, you are able to catch the local bus from outside the hotel for a fraction of the cost.We did it a few times and always felt safe. Again these busses don't go near the adventure centre. The hotel itself is lovely and you will need to walk quiet a distance, which again didn't bother us. Some people may find it a bit difficult to get about. The staff were very friendly and helpful, always greeted us with a smile. We found the food to be of a good standard and reception staff very helpful. All in all a good holiday, jam packed with adventures and a good resort to relax in after our fantastic excursions. More>

GOOD FAMILY HOLIDAY

Lovely location - set in the jungle with a zoo in the centre containing parrots, deer, monkeys, turtles...a nice distraction as you wander between your room and the hotel's facilities. And, the pools leading straight on to the sandy beach. Plenty of sunbeds right up to 10am even in August, so no need for early morning alarms. Freshly laundered poolside towels daily. There are 3 pools at the main site - a kids one with 2 water slides and a bucket which randomly fills and spills on them (they love it!), one used primarily for the poolside games and sports and then the large main pool with a swim up bar. The last 2 have a constant depth of around 4ft and all are lovely and warm. The waiters are fabulous at the pool bar - all work really hard in the heat so the holidaymakers can stay put on their beds, but we particularly noted Mitzi, Elva and poor Ramon who had been stung more than once by the wasps attracted to his drinks. Drink selection good. Also adult pool on a higher level - have mattresses on the beds, looks over sea and serves sandwiches and branded drinks. Sea pool - lovely to see the fish and kids love the boogie boarding. Beach - free sunbeds, beach bar, lots of seaweed, rocky underfoot (beach stall sells seashoes), paddleboards, kayaks and catamaran all free to hire. The animation team (POP) made our holiday. Our 10 year old son played pool basket or polo at least once a day, went with them "into the jungle" to play archery and, if he could stand the heat, played volleyball and football on the beach (a bit of shade for that would have been good...). My husband and stepdaughters joined in the daily Crazy Game (pool/drinking games), we all had a go at the daily pool trivia quiz, pool biking, pool aerobics and bingo as well as the occasional poolside puzzle (eg, guess what is in the box/how many playing cards/how many strings on a racket etc). Much enjoyed - just difficult to pick up prizes at 2145 clashing with a la carte restaurant timings - but amazing to see them all STILL working hard into the night after a busy day poolside. Particular thanks to Jonathan, JC, Herve, Ivan, Janeth and Xamina. JC and Jonathan even started their day early to play doubles tennis with us and we enjoyed Jonathan;s food decoration and towel folding class. Evening entertainment was hit and miss - some nights market stalls were set up by the zoo. Our triple room had 2 queen sized beds - we found one a little on the small side for the two of us, whilst a double room enjoyed a king size bed. But the rooms were cleaned daily, sheets and towels changed on request and shampoo, conditioner and body lotion all free and replenished daily. Mini bar also restocked free of charge though had to chase sometimes. Air conditioning in room very efficient and aside from the hot water being unpredictable, the shower worked well as did the TV. Not a huge amount of storage space for 3 of us and very small terrace. Generally speaking, the room would have been nice and quiet but for the daily Mexican weddings on the beach meaning the celebrating parties drinking till the early hours and returning noisily after both stag nights and wedding days. Daily buffet was more quantity than quality - we thought breakfast was best, offering freshly cooked omelettes, crepes, entire fry ups as well as fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, cheeses, cold meats, excellent smoothies, toast, jam, pastries, sweets, cakes and mexican tacos, fajitas, burritos etc. But much of the same was put out again the evening so worth keep booking the a la cartes. I like Bambu best (recommend the tapinyaki), but Portofino also good. Not so keen on Ribs and More - Filet Mignon did not resemble it as I know it at all - in fact it was pretty awful. My son liked to go the Sports Bar in the evening to play pool. They serve tacos/nachos/fries etc but not great quality and the air conditioning barely worked. Much better was the Hemingway Bar with excellent air conditioning, branded drinks, a lovely waiter and card tables, but we were unable to stay in there with a 10yr old. Hotel shop has a good range of gifts and though perhaps a little more expensive than outside, Puerto Vallarta is over one hour drive away - we went by taxi and perused Malecon - good souvenir shopping followed by a Mexican meal overlooking the sea - fabulous street entertainers, the Disney Cruise Ship passed by as did a pirate ship discharging fireworks. The spa and gym looked lovely but we started to get irritated with the constant approach of the massage salesmen when we wanted to relax around the pool. We KNOW there is a spa, we KNOW they sell massages, we don;t need reminding 3 times a day! But worst of all - the timeshare salespeople (aka The Travel Club). They stand on junctions of the hotel paths during the morning with bait to tempt you to spend 2hrs of your well-earned rest listening to their sales patter - one minute less and you forfeit the promised massages/luxury pack...up to you, but be warned and,we all know, always advisable to read any contracts...
