My sister and I booked a spring break trip about a month ago. We arrived on Friday April 22nd and came back Wednesday April 27th. First things first - there were a lot of mixed reviews so we went in hoping the good reviews were the true story and it was amazing! I will preface everything by saying I speak conversational Spanish, I grew up learning Spanish at home so I do understand it. However, almost everyone I met also spoke English, and those who spoke it conversationally really tried. I am a firm believer that if you are going to another country do some research learn some basic phrases – it goes along way. But back to my review: We arrived around 11 p.m. on Friday and when we arrived there was someone there offering us a drink, someone to check us in and someone to help bring our luggage to our room. We stayed in the third building, which is closest to the quiet secluded beach with the salt-water pool. It was close enough that we figured out a shortcut to the main pool area but far enough that when the weddings in the evening were happening we didn't hear a sound. They have free Wi-Fi which worked well most times a few time it went spotty but not to bad. We had a normal room with two beds lots of space and a balcony we were on the third floor, which we liked. The room was more than large enough for two people there was even table and a mini desk area attached to the TV. The beds were comfortable and our room was spotless when we arrived and was always kept super clean by Lilliana our maid. They exterminate the rooms’ daily, which is a great idea to ensure not mosquitos, and bugs get into the room. The resort is built on a mountain, like most of the island so there’s a lot of going up and down hill and walking. Every building was wheel chair accessible, there is no elevator but the building don’t go past the third floor. There is a small garden, which my sister and I enjoyed walking through and a Zoo right in the middle of the property – it became a ritual to stop by every day on our way to the pool. We booked our cars from the airport with Trafic Tours and they met us at the airport with a sign with our names and took us to the airport on the day we wee leaving. It was great and easy so thank you to Trafic Tours (PVR) for the seamless transport. Our first day there we decided to just hang by the beach and explore the resort a bit. We were never once "bothered" by any of the club sales people everyone was extremely helpful and nice. I spoke to one of the lovely sales women from the Spa about booking a massage after we had breakfast on Saturday and she came and found me and helped me pick out the right massage for me and even suggested a manicure for my sister while I was getting a massage so she wouldn’t be sitting poolside alone. I ended up with two massages by the end of the trip one to relax at the beginning of vacation and one post ATV/Horseback riding. The first time I had Angelic - she was great worked on my knots and I know I have a lot! The second time I had Cocinta she was also great I had 80 minutes with her and she worked on every part of my back and limbs. My sister had a great manicurist I can't remember her name but my sister really enjoyed it. When you book a spa service which includes a manicure you get access to the spa for the day so we stayed for a few hours and enjoyed the sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and pool. It was a tranquil relaxing environment just what we needed to start our vacation on a calming note. There are five pools, the main pool, a mini one that connects to the main pool, a kid’s pool, an adult pool up near Viva Mexico restaurant and the salt pool down by the beach. Plenty of space not to be on top of everyone, the pools were always busy but no overwhelming, as was the beach. They have a snack bar by the main pool so you can grab food during lunchtime or a hotdog and not have to leave the pool area. We really liked being able to grab food enjoy and sit right back down by the pool. There is a swim up bar and a normal bar as well as a bar by the beach. So drinks were always flowing. The People of Palladium staff were super great they had activities throughout the day from water aerobics to volleyball and bingo. Activities everyone in the family can participate in, for those who prefer drinking games they even did those! They also put on shows they weren’t super high end like those on our cruise last summer but still quiet entertaining. They even had one where he children from the Kids club put on a show – great way to get the kids involved. Special shout out to Jorge and Josie whom did the water aerobics class it was a lot of fun! Also on two of the days we just sat by the pool and our waitress Melissa was phenomenal she remembered that my sister like frosty drinks but non-alcoholic and I like them with alcohol. She was a great pool and beach side waitress. Our maid Lilliana was great, our room was always spotless and she remembered that my sister liked the extra pillows! Lastly we booked two excursions with Vista Paraiso - they were awesome! We went horseback riding with Noel and ATV with two great guys (I think they're names were Felipe and Edward) anyway they were great! It was our first time horseback riding it was awesome; we rode around for about an hour. (Tip wear knee length shorts and sneakers to avoid chaffing from the horse saddle) We also went on the ATV’s, it was my sisters first time ATVing so they let her test it out, she ended up preferring to ride in a double so they drove and I drove my own. They took us out for about two hours driving the ATV’s, we bought a photo package since it was hard to take photos ourselves while ATVing. They let me clip on my goPro to the helmet so I got some video of us ATVing. We tried almost every restaurant the BamBu – delicious, Viva Mexico and Porfino, we even ordered in room service twice for a late night snack. The food was good in every restaurant - we had one server who basically followed us throughout al the restaurants and he was awesome! Honestly every staff member we interacted with was great- excellent service! My sister and I plan to go back next year or maybe even this winter! The only downside was on our last day the water went out for about 30 minutes around 11 p.m. at night otherwise the entire trip was flawless from the welcome to departure. We had an awesome time! Great job Palladium staff. We look forward to going back! More>

It was so nice to be treated by a smile and Ola everywhere we went. Joe Garcia was especially friendly standing long shifts greating folks as they walked along the sidewalk. Even though we didn't purchase the holiday package he continued throughout our holiday to be genuinely friendly. I felt I made a new friend and would encourage others to seek him out and experience what I did. We would love to go back for so many reasons. More>

Would defineitly return

Nice resort with great views. There are many stairs. The food is about what is expected from an all inclusive, good with ample choices. The Portifino as well as Ribs and More were good with great service. Antonio will take great care of you at Ribs and More. The Mexican restaurant was not great and we heard many complaints about the service. If you do a little day drinking, none of that really matters. Giovanni at Hemingway's was absolutely the best bartender at the resort. The booze is top shelf and the service is outstanding. What a nice young man, always providing service with a smile. Alberto Alvarez served us breakfast and lunch daily at the buffet. Alberto was friendly and did a great job, as did those assisting him. Cesar, Ramon and Omar all provided great service at the adult pool. Chairs near the pool at the adult pool are at a premium and you had better get there pretty early to secure a chair. My wife thought the pools were dissappointing and not as photographed. Security watches everyone very closely, so no rule infraction goes unnoticed. It does give you a warm fuzzy feeling to be watched that closely though. The resort is very safe. Christian at the front desk is very friendly and helpful. Eldio is a bellman and can assist you with about anything you need. His English is excellent. More>

This was our 1st vacation to the pacific side of Mexico. We stayed from April 16 - 26. We were pleased with the resort and especially the friendly staff. Yes there are a lot of time share people but they're only doing they're job. We weren't interested and Joe was very understanding. Always had a warm welcome and good tips on what the resort had to offer. Maybe next time Joe. The food was quite good. We ate at the buffet for most of our meals and must say it was wonderful to have our cappuccino ready. Thank you Alberto Alvarez for the special treatment. You made breakfast our favourite meal. The restaurants were all good. Never had a bad meal. We stayed in building 1. Great view of the pool and ocean. The guys at the relax bar were some of the best. Mathias, Ramon and Omar had it going on for sure. We had some power outages but the crew from entertainment did a great job keeping everyone entertained. Security was also great at keeping us all feeling very safe. Francica (sorry if I misspelled) was one of our favorite servers in the evening at the main lobby bar. Always kept us topped up. Would I return? Maybe but must be honest, The beach and water is still the pacific. One suggestion would be to have security in the hallways after 11pm to keep the rowdy noisy party goers from running thru the halls yelling. More>
