Honeymoon

The experience was overall unforgettable. Spent most of our time between the beach and the pool. Bought the excursion to Chichen Itza (worth EVERY penny - fave part) and was able to jump in the Ik Kil Cenote as well. Best part was seeing outside the resort, it gave great perspective and enlightenment. The wildlife was great to see up close, wife loved the wild cats that roamed around. Food was so/so, honestly would have preferred authentic Mexican food stations. Entertainment should have been a live band playing local music, not the odd shows they put on. Overall I would go back, but I might prefer finding a non-resort location to absorb the culture a bit more.

Great Resort

Great resort. Lots of food options. The resort is massive; requires a lot of walking. Wouldn't suggest for a big group who is frequently trying to meet up. Not for the disabled. The pools were awesome. The entertainment was top notch. Recommend this place to others. Staff were professional and everything was very clean.

Such a great trip!

My husband and I had a great trip! The staff was very friendly, the place is a paradise and you pretty much never have to leave the resort for anything unless you want to sightsee! The rooms were spacious however the bed was not super comfortable. All of the cheap carribean and Amstar employees were excellent!! The only other suggestions I can think of is there are way too many zentropia people asking about the spa, i felt I was being harassed at times... And there could be maybe a club or two more for adults to dance the night away!!

Had a great vacation!

Overall we enjoyed our first stay in the grand palladium colonial. Cheap caribbean made the booking and flight process very simple. The amstar shuttle service was very easy to follow. I recommend waiting to book your excursions through amstar when you arrive. The lady who helped us was Guadalup, she was extremely friendly and was able to get us a discount for the dolphin swim! The beach was absolutely beautiful and the resort gives you many different pool options to choose from. All staff were very friendly and spoke english. The only complaint with staff was with house keeping. We requested our room cleaned first thing in the morning at 8am via the card provided by resort. We returned 7 hours later after a day at the beach, ready to shower, with our room still dirty and no clean towels! The a la carte dinner resturants were all fabulous with extremely friendly waiters. Our favorties were the Brazilian Rodizio and the steakhouse. The buffets for breakfast and lunch had tons of options for adults and kids, but after so many days you get sick of buffet food. There were plently of alcholic drink options, and they tasted great! The rooms were beautiful, and included your own balcony. However there were not nearly enough outlets in the room. You have to unplug the lamps just to charge your phone. The only other downside to this resort is everything is far away so either be prepared to walk or wait 10 minutes for the shuttle. Also there are lizards and weasels the roam the resort, but they do not bother you. All in all would definitely book this resort again. ..

Had a great vacation! Had a great vacation!

What's to Love

The all-inclusive aah-some of it all - you want it? They deliver.

Over 800 yards of white sand for your beach frolicking, or chillaxing.

The coolio Spanish Colonial architecture in this epic eco-resort bursting with flora and fauna.

Zentropia Spa at the nearby Grand Palladium Kantenah - hydrotherapy and couples' massage.

The crazy good breakfast buffet that beach lovers rave about.

 

What We'd Change

The Grand Palladium property is huge so it can be a bit of a trek for the tired traveler, but Grand Palladium Colonial is prepared with a transfer service to take you where you want to be on the property.

 

Why You Should Go

It's in gorgeous Akumal, and 45 minutes away from Cancun airport. You'll be sipping cocktails soon.

You get access to three other Palladiums - mega-sized treat for you - four resorts for one.

There's a bar called "Hemmingway." Bring your notebook and channel your inner author.

The grounds are massive. If you don't want a good walking workout, grab a shuttle.

You can drop your munchkins off at the Kids clubs - you get to go play on your own.
