We travelled to GPV for a friend's destination wedding. We were in building two. The rooms are adequate, with some wear but clean and comfortable. The resort itself as you've read is a great place for young families with a great kids pool and club. It is not the best place for anyone with a mobility issue as there are many levels, stairs, inclines and uneven stone paths. We enjoyed the Adult Relax Pool for the most part which was excellent. Enrique was the best server at this pool : How Many? The buffet had plenty of choices and was good overall. They had gelato for some of the week and a candy bar one days for the kids. We had two issues that were deal breakers for a return visit. The first were the birds that get into the outdoor buffet seating area. This was annoying as they jumped on people's plates when they left to get more food. They also dropped food all over tables and/or guests from the lights and also poop on the chairs or you. Our friend was hit one day. This is unsanitary and should be corrected immediately. The second was the totally inept reservation system (or lack thereof) for regular guests. It was almost impossible, we tried the app and it didn't work. We tried going to the a la carte at opening to make a reservation as told and they wouldn't take one anywhere, yet we spoke to some that were able to. The Royal Suites guest and those that purchased an upgrade had a concierge in the lobby to make them and let me say, they weren't rushed off their feet to be able to take regular guest reservations. Overall, the service is spectacular and the staff work very hard with nothing being a problem which is why I give it four stars. The wedding setup was wonderful and you never knew there was even a wedding the next morning as they were so efficient. Don't hesitate to come here with these things in mind.

Where do I begin ,, we just came from RIU PALACE and decided to extend our trip so I booked four nights at the Palladium ,, as we all know pictures are never what they seem ,,, Photo shopped is an understatement ,,, I am a basic simple person I'm not one of the super picky people ,, but maybe I have change my ways since my travels ,,, The kids club there is amazing ,, that's all I can say the property needs a huge makeover and it is old and run down you cannot polish a turd you need just start fresh hey sad because property itself is nice but the buildings and all the walkways are old ,,, there are no elevators but they status but remind you you better be prepared to walk very confusing property ,, pools were dirty and small so it's way over crowded hard to really swim around ,,, The saltwater pool that they showing the picture she's part of the ocean they built a little while around and I very seldom gets fresh water in there so it looks like somebody has been sitting in there all day drinking too many bloody Mary's ,,, The food I understand all inclusive I understand is most likely not gonna be the best food you ever had but there's was exceptionally bad no service had keep looking at our plates that we already ate off of forever can I get a drink was next to impossible ,,, so you have been fair warned plenty of hotels with the same pricing was way better properties we canceled out of the four nights three nights and booked at the hard rock hotel beautiful awesome place ,,,

Great place for families

Third time to Mexico, first time with a 3 year old. Great place for kids, overall good resort, a few comments that made this place different: 1) The Kids place (for kids 4-12years old) is great! We overheard children asking parents to go back there. They just loved it. 2) The baby place (1-3 years old)is not so good. The kids just watched Spanish tv. 3) LOTS of stairs there.Lots, but it is wheelchair accessible 4) Surf there is really good and there are lots of resort water toys to use for free. We planned to go to Soinulita to surf but we didn't need to. 5) Drunk parents, please watch you kids. There is plenty of booze but you still have a responsibility to be a parent. 6) service was good, but they were understaffed in the buffet restaurant.

Overall, a great trip! I went with four friends and stayed from Saturday to Saturday. We were on break for the week and enjoyed a nice relaxing vacation. We loved the water aerobics with Gabi! The service was great especially at lunch at the snack bar. Alberto Alvarez was wonderful and super helpful in helping us to enjoy our meals! The resort had a lot to offer and the bars and food were tasty. I had Celiac and they were very accommodating if you got a card from the front desk to give to your server every night at dinner they took extra precautions to ensure a safe meal. We took dance lessons on the beach with Hector which were very fun (even for someone with two left feet like myself). 10/10 would recommend this destination!

The people were fantastic

We went with a group of friends. Everyone was very polite and professional. The beach wasn't the best. Very rocky The staff was excellent especially the bartenders and servers At the relax bar Matiaz Jose luis Cristian Enrique And beach bar was same thing the best bartenders .. I forgot to write there name down , but they will take care of you They were professional , out going and very friendly . Everyone was awesome !!! Don Julio Blanco !👌 Food.. honestly the buffet was good couldn't complain... breakfast was amazing , drinks were great Now when you want to try the other restaurants . You have to download an app for booking an appointment. That being said . The steak house wasn't what I expected .. not only he forgot to take my order lol... he forgot to give me my food that I ordered loll... and on top of that the steak that I ordered rib eye was like a thin pork piece... he said it will be a big steak lol . Clearly not.. no worries Overall. Trip was good I had a blast anyways . Wasn't what I expected, beach is not that good. Food to average. Staff was the the best !!!!! Awesome people they made my vacation awesome
