Wonderful Vacation..... As Usual
PBCR, sparwood
Thu May 19 06:53:38 EDT 2016
We visited the Grand Palladium for our sixth time from April16-23. Why do we keep returning to the same resort? So many people ask us this question, there are so many reasons. #1 The People! Working with the public ourselves we know it is not easy to serve people day in and day out while keeping a smile on your face. But the People of the Palladium do it no problem. From the moment we step off the bus and enter this lush tropical paradise we are greeted with huge smiles and hugs by either Victor, Jose, Moises, Rafael,Omar, Edie or many of the wonderful bellboys. All of these guys are amazing, smiling and chatting as they haul our heavy bags up to our room. Check-in is a breeze thanks to Christian, Victoria and all front desk staff. A special thanks to Alba, she is a true gem. Although the entire resort is amazing we mentioned to her on a previous visit which area we preferred to stay in. Not only did she fulfil our request she went above and beyond to make our stay a fantasy. Thank you Alba! The entire resort is spotless thanks to the never ending jobs of the cleaning staff. Our maid Zulema kept our room 2110 clean and stocked. There was always someone sweeping fallen leaves- a never ending task on the walkways and pool decks. Many faces have remained the same over the past 5 years, although there are a few great additions to the entertainment crew and waiting staff. These people work long long days and never stop smiling or striving to make your vacation exactly what it should be. A Vacation! Alberto and Roberto had our breakfast table waiting every morning, along with Merly's wonderful omelettes and Spanish lessons. We start the day feeling as though we are special when really they are the special ones. Veryida and Alex are a great addition to the morning staff! Bartenders and servers at the pools and the beach never let your drinks run dry. Efren, Christian, Daniel, Paulo, Erick, Omar, Melissa, Yovanna, Zuberia, Antonio and Matias. Thanks to you all! The food at this resort although we thought has been great from day one, just keeps getting better each time we visit. There is always something for everyone, although we did miss the churros at breakfast. The hotdog stand at the main pool is a great addition! Thanks Jorge for the tortillas as we would sneak by the beach barbecue, they're our favourite part of the barbecue. The main buffet has anything you could want, although we kept returning for the tacos. Since we are in Mexico we crave Mexican food. Beach barbecue, Viva Mexico, these are great as always. We tried the Bambu for the first time and it was wonderful. So many great choices and wonderful service! Thank you! The entertainment crew who keep going from morning til late at night, never tiring and always smiling. Martin, Raul, Diego, Tania, Daniel, Abraham, Jorge, Junior, Issac, Thank you! One day we might surprise you all and participate in activities. The night shows are all great, each night is different and always entertaining. Rusbel, Francia, Lupita, Antonio, Adolfo and all of the Lobby Bar staff thank you for never letting us go dry..... Francia we still want some shoes like yours and the other girls but in a big size. Victor is a great addition to the lobby bar staff, handsome and talented you fit right in. A trip to this resort is a true vacation and we look forward to the next. Be ware we are planning on returning with the whole family next timeβ€οΈπŸ’šπŸ’œπŸ˜€ More>

We had a great 10 day trip to Grand Palladium. The food was really good, there are so many choices at the buffet that you never need to eat the same and some really good a la cartes to choose from too. Breakfast was great, eggs cooked to order, fresh French toast and crepes and good coffee. My kids love pastries and macaron so they were in heaven. We really enjoyed the lamb in the ribs and more and the Mexican was fabulous. We ate so much tortilla, guacamole and salsa that I'm not sure I can eat it ever again! Fab frozen margaritas and Mojitos, good cold beer and an ice cream cart pops by for the kids while by the pool. We played tennis, used the kids club, watched a show, boogie boarded, snorkelled, swam, wave jumped, built sand castles, beach combed and had a great time. Only downside was our first room was block 2 and looked onto the main pool- so incredibly noisy as there are weddings or events most night. We asked to move and got a great quiet room in block 3 overlooking the sea. The family pool is also crazy noisy with the staff blowing whistles and constantly playing loud pop music and talking on microphones. It got a bit much after a while so the beach was much quieter. Fantastic waves and sea water pool. Staff very lovely and helpful. Zoo was perfect and the kids loved it. All in all very good, I'd give it 4.5 out of 5 just because of the noise. More>

I recently vacationed here for 10 days. For anyone looking for a moderate sized resort that offers fun and great service - this is for you. You will do a bit of walking as the resort isn't small but it's not large enough that it requires golf carts to give you rides like some places I've stayed. The entertainment team put on many activities throughout the day and the shows in the evening were decent. The disco was fun at night and there are a ton of kids activities during the day so you can nap off your hangover ;) The service was great although at times I noticed they seemed short staffed especially in the buffet. The al le carte restaurants were delicious and the bonus was you didn't need a reservation and you could go multiple times during the week. There is 24 hour access to food and room service is included for 10 hours a day. The adult pool was nice and relaxing although does not have a swim up bar. The main pool where the swim up bar is, is a tad small when it's busy but the beach has a lot of space and has its own bar plus a natural salt water pool. The rooms were decent but a bit small and staying there 10 days I wished there were drawers in the room to unpack my suitcase. I'm sure the rooms in the royal suites are much more elaborate. Did I mention surfing lessons are included? The ocean there is great for it. Another bonus was unlimited wifi and there was service throughout the resort. They also offer an app to guide you around the resort's services. One thing that may be concerning is how far the resort is from Puerto Vallarta. It makes it a bit more tricky and expensive to go on excursions so that is something I would consider before going again. But they do have a little market set up in the evenings and lots of activities on the resort so you really don't need to leave that much! Plus you are super close to punta de mita, bucerias, sayulita which are a cheap cab ride away and very nice, safe towns to eat/visit/shop/go to the beach. The spa was also very lovely. The massages were amazing. It is a very relaxing atmosphere and you have access to the sauna, steam room and pool with waterfalls which rounds out the experience nicely!! The staff at this resort are AMAZING! They want to make sure you are happy and having fun the entire time you stay. All in all I would give it a 4/5!! More>

Excellent!

I really like this Resort. It is one hour away from Puerto Vallarta, but it is worth it. The view and food are excellent. It is safe, clean and the staff is very professional and friendly. I recommend it. More>

Room was near the adult pool which was perfect because this was the best spot to be. Beautiful views looking over the edge of the infinity style pool. Did not spend time on the kids side but seemed great for them as well considering multiple smaller water slides and a large pool area. Staff was very friendly. Special thanks to Armando Gutierrez for making our dining experience so wonderful. He always greeted us with the warmest welcome and made sure we were always taken care of. He went above and beyond to make us feel special including providing us with our own bucket of champagne. Overall a very good experience. More>
