I will start by saying that we book this holiday at very late notice and really should have gone for adult only resort whats good check in was quick and easy, welcome drinks served on arrival at reception staff where pleasant and helpful we where offered an upgrade to the Royal suites, but declined. I was pleasantly surprised to find our room preference had been Read (emailed in advanced) and they where aware of our Anniversary. After a quick explanation of the lay out and amenity's we went to our room 2120 first floor with an ocean view at first it seemed perfect. the resort in clean and well kept the smell people sometimes describe i could not smell at all, the family pool was extremely busy so we went for the adult pool, we found sun beds on the second row and relaxed watching the sea from the infinity pool we found this a little on the small side and the bar set up a flight of stairs, seems strange that the adult pool had no swim up bar, yet the family pool full of kids did ? that said the staff where good and the view from the pool was excellent there was afir amount of walking and steps nothing that would be excessive but on a hot day or evening did slow us down. we eat in the ribs and more on the first night no reservation just turned up had a nice steak my wife had the fillet steak and it was good down side was no air con so a table under a fan a must. the problems started on the second night, being closest to the beach meant that the Mexican wedding that went on till early hours kept us awake and the fire works whilst pretty where right in front of the room and deafening then after the party(these guys know how to celebrate) came the heard of drunken elephants heading to there room then the 1 hour furniture moving session above us finally settling around 02.00 Am. this is something that i struggle to understand i go away for a break and a rest. The next day after a trip to reception they explained they had a further 3 weddings that week and could move us to a room further back, after a hour or so of debate we decided to upgrade to the sister hotel (Royal suites) after a visit it was so much more relaxed. this was partly my fault we haven't stayed in a family resort in years and are more accustomed to a calmer time on holiday, that said i didn't realize that there would be large Mexican weddings almost daily, may be understandable when you see the chapel and the setting, but it is a bit of a clash with holiday makers staying for 2 - 3 weeks at a time when guests staying a day or two for a one off event they both have very different a engenders. the food in the restaurants was very hit and miss some very nice some poor, the buffet had a good selection for breakfast or dinner and the staff where attentive but the Italian was awful and the snack bar at lunch i struggled to get a hot sandwich or roll even an hour after opening they would say sorry no pan (bread). if your young or a family i can see that this place can be a lot of fun but my mistake was straying from our normal style of holiday. Drinks where good and plentiful and the staff excellent.

This wasn't a great resort. There wasn't one dinner that we went to where they ran out of pretty much everything. Frustrating to go to a rib restaurant and be told they are out of ribs. Ran out of red wine every night we were there. The no reservation thing is nice, but we waited for over an hour to get in more than two nights. This resort would be great if you have kids. Kids can do no wrong. But our group had security follow us around the whole time. We weren't doing anything wrong, and actually got in trouble when someone, who we didn't even know, jumped from one pool to another. The security who was the most horrible to us was named Quebec. The rest of the security was really nice. Normally we would have a couple massages each on a trip such as this, but I couldn't bring myself to put any money into this resort. We opted to go off resort for this. We had paid for an ocean view room, and were not put in one. I called when we got there and we were told they had no record of us having an ocean view. I actually had to send out itinerary to them so they could see. He told me they would call me back by 9 the next morning. No one was notified of the mistake and I ended up calling myself. I spoke to Victoria, who was wonderful. She had our room situation fixed for us, and even called my personal phone so we didn't have to wait in our room to have it fixed. She also offered us an upgrade, which was very nice. If it wasn't for her, I would have rated this resort one or two stars. The resort didn't seem full, but there was not enough loungers, and we mostly had to share two or four between 9 of us. There was a wedding every night we were there. They should consider moving the reception away from all of the rooms. If you are in your room between 8&11, it is so loud, even with the patio closed.

Beautiful Honeymoon

We came here for our honeymoon, back in 2012. Service was excellent, food was excellent and the grounds were absolutely gorgeous. It is a bit far from Puerto Vallarta but if you're wanting a perfect get-away and get spoilt, this is the perfect place.

Great place to go and relax

If you are looking for a place to go and relax, then look no further than Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa. The resort is about 40 minutes outside the city tucked away in a nice quiet area by the water. The staff is friendly and the food is excellent. You cannot go wrong with a bar in the main pool. Bartenders are top notch.

Family Fun but Tough on the Calf Muscles

This resort is in my favorite part of Puerto Vallarta. The town of Punta de Mita is only a few minutes away by taxi. The resorts sits on a cliff above Punta Burros which is a great surf spot. The resort supplies surf boards (soft tops), SUPs, kayaks, and a couple of Hobie Cats. The property also has a zoo that is fun to walk through. The resort has all the usual all-inclusive amenities and the food is pretty good. From the beach staff to the bar tenders, the employees are all very friendly. The only downside is the topographical challenges of the property. There are NO elevators on the property and the whole property is on the cliff so if you forget something in your room, you are in for a calf workout. We had some grandparents with us that found this a challenge.
