Enjoy a 24-hour all-inclusive vacation, Palladium style, with numerous activities throughout the day and fantastic shows at night.

The resort has four delicious a la carte themed restaurants (Brazilian, Italian, Asian and Grill/Barbecue), two buffet-style restaurants with show cooking, and access to many more at the other hotels in the complex. Plus, you'll never go thirsty, with 13 bars including swim-up (26 bars around the complex) serving up national and international premium drinks!

The Baby Club (for children between 1 and 3), the Mini Club (4 -12), and Black & White Junior's Club (13+), are just some of the splendid entertainment options offered so kids can interact with other children their own ages and from other parts of the world. While the kids are being entertained, relax at the spa or work out in the fitness center. In addition to offering exclusive and personalized services (fee), the Zentropía Palladium Spa & Wellness Center also features a gymnasium with modern exercise equipment.

Refresh and sunbathe at the incredible pool areas, and participate in a daily program of sports and entertainment activities on the beach and at the pool-and don't miss the shows, live music, and games every night at the theater. Compete in PlayStation, pool, table tennis, sand castle, treasure hunt, and karaoke tournaments. For nature lovers, there is a crocodile habitat with an exhibition of their feeding. This beautiful mega resort is truly eco-friendly. Resort staff leads vacationers in daily eco-tours.

We were initially put in a horrible room in Bldg 52. The smell of raw sewage was overwhelming. Our apple rep the next day helped get us moved to Bldg 56-however that is right next to the big pool in the White Sands area and very noicy. She then found us a room in Bldg 61, which was very nice.

Our stay at Palladium White sands was truly the best vacation we ever had! The resort, with its pool, salt water pool, buffets, and entertainment were second to none. I highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a family or a vacation get away for couples. .. More>

The restaurants & pool area at the Grand Palladium are very nice. We were very disappointed in the fact that there is no view of the beach/ocean from almost every hotel room & that in order to get to the beach you had about a 1/2 mile walk. In fact, the resort is so large that everything wa .. More>

We went back to this resort for 12 days from Jan. 27th to Feb. 7th 2014. We were there for 10 days last year and were so impressed we decided to go back for an even longer stay.

My family spent 7 nights at the beginning of September, which is OFF season. Yes, it rained 5 days out of 7 but... it's tropical - rain comes and goes very quickly, and it's warm, so most of the people stayed at the beach under the umbrellas waiting for the rain to pass. Awesome beach!!! We had .. More>
