Awesome resort!

Had an amazing time! Very clean. Fantastic and very friendly staff! Gabby who does pool aerobics and pool biking was awesome. Our main server Guillermo down at the main pool was great! Lots of activities to do daily with the people of palladium or on your own at the beach. Nice selection of food as well. Every night there was shows along with activities in the square. The sports bar is wonderful with full service food.

Be prepared to walk

When I was told their was walking I didn't think it would be this much walking. The resort is amazing, and the adult pool to the main pool to the ocean is all close together. There are natural paths and paved paths for walking but either way make sure to have comfortable walking shoes or sandals. Guest get bracelets, which is the norm, but we still haven't figured out what it meant as we were the only ones with yellow. Service didn't seem to improve based on colours rather on sociability and how much drinking you partook. Restaurants, there are a lot of options; they were all nice and you had the option to pay more for different meals at the a la carts. Heard that some guests had limits on how many a pa carts they had but we didn't run into that. The evening shows were hit and miss a couple were very good and then others just weren't what I was expecting. They put a lot of effort into the shows. Tipping didn't seems to improve service, so I gave up on that idea and stuck to self service. The beach front is amazing with great waves. Over all the resort is great in terms of space and what they have to offer. I would give shout outs to specific staff however none were any better then the others for us, tho I heard victor the bartender server at the adult pool is amazing.

Amazing resort with amazing staff!

I just returned back from a trip here with 5 friends and had an amazing trip! If you're looking for a big party resort, this definitely isn't the place for you. It's pretty tame, which was totally fine with me! The food was amazing and the buffet always had a great variety. The beach did seem a bit rocky, however I spent most of my time at the adult pool reading so it was no bother to me and I never did check out much in terms of night life. Also, there is free WiFi throughout the resort - It was spotty in some places however it worked fine enough for me! I have to say though, the absolute best part of this resort is the staff. Everyone is super helpful and accommodating. Special shout outs to Jannet at the Mexican Restaurant for making THE BEST guacamole I've ever eaten; Alfredo at the spa for hooking us up with a great spa experience; and Victor at the adult pool for bringing the best drinks, always with a smile! I definitely plan on going back to this resort!

Staff were very friendly and helpful

Room was very clean, food excellent , pool clean, beach clean. We had a medical emergency and the hotel, ambulance, doctor, hospital and our insurance carrier were amazing. The hotel security and staff were so kind. Wonderful human beings.

Great Stay!

The food was great for regular and gluten free eating. Pools were very nice, but the adult pool needs new speakers.(MINOR) The beach was amazing... very well kept and being able to use the paddle boards for free was very nice.There were a ton of locals, which made it feel authentic. The room was very nice! We always forgot our card to the room, and they were always happy to help. Front desk staff were beyond helpfull and nice. The bar... Where do I begin? The fantazma is probably the best drink I've ever had. The drinks are made amazingly. My partner says the Ceaser is the best hes ever had. One downside, is no corona on tap, but that's okay. Overall, had an amazing vacation, and will be back!
