Fantastic hotel . Staff were great all over the resort but special mention for Manuel in the Japanese restaurant who was outstanding and made our night there very special . Elisabeth also in the Japanese restaurant who offered us a show table for the teppanyaki after a no show by other guests. My 7 yr old granddaughter and us had great fun on this night . Thank you. The pool waiter Diego at the white sands was also very attentive and looked after our family of 12 very well. A big thank you to everyone for making our family trip very special .

We arrived at the White Sands resort on 30th September and were booked in within 5 minutes of arriving and we were in our room 10 minutes later having been awake for about 20 hours we went to bed straight away. we were in room 5618 The room was excellent, spacious, very clean and a wonderful view. The next day we went to see Bruno at the destination services desk, He listened to our requirements with regards to trips out of the resort and booked exactly what we wanted, he was a pleasure to talk too. With regards to the food & restaurants at the resort we tried most of them and the were excellent, spotlessly clean, air conditioned and the staff were meticulous. I would recommend the Japanese & Spanish. I cannot talk highly enough of the entertainment team, we had our 21 year old daughter with us and she could not wait to meet up with Laura Gonzales, Oscar Iturriage & Alessandro, they kept her entertained everyday, she came home a much better Salsa dance than when she arrived. These guys are very special and work so hard. All members of staff were very polite and could not do enough for you. We are already planning to go back next year. Thank you to all the staff of the Grand Palladium

I do not write reviews , and this should be the last thing on my mind as we have have just landed home after our 2 weeks stay at this fab resort currently 24 hrs without sleep . But I have to just let anyone considering whether to choose this hotel ...... it's a no brainer. We visited 4 years ago and have been to some great places but everything we compare to this hotel and so had to come back. The place is stunning the staff work non stop keeping it pristine . I have to mention the staff who are the most wonderful people and have made what could have been a bit of a disaster of a holiday as easy as they could for me . My mobility was very bad this year and I spent the 2 weeks on crutches .... but help was always there when I needed it ... over and above what anyone could have expected so a big thank you guys ... especially the bell boys , Ellezar, David , Romeo to mention just a couple who got me anywhere I needed to go any time I needed a ride to dinner , the pool , the lobby they where outside my room within a minute of my call . You can read other reviews where they will tell you about the food the rooms etc ..... if some one says anything negative you can take it with a pinch of salt ..... trust me it's a fantastic place . Now I need to sleep , but once again guys for everything you do to make this place what it is .
