Awesome vacay!

Beautiful resort with the sister resorts lined up next to one another. It's a nice walk or just a short shuttle ride to get from one to the other. We enjoyed the spa and the pools, which included a natural salt water pool off of the ocean. During our stay we ate at the Mexican, Japanese and Steakhouse restaurants and all 3 were awesome. The room was great with a super comfy bed and nice little balcony. If you're looking for an au natural experience in Mexico while still having the luxury of resort accommodations, this is your spot. Would highly recommend and go back in a heartbeat :)

Grand Palladium Kantenah Review

My boyfriend an I just returned from a fabulous 4-day/3-night trip to this property in Riveria Maya. The resort was wonderful and had something to offer to every guest. We loved the number of food options and thought the quality of the buffets and ala carte restaurants was great. We are planning another trip back to this resort and would highly recommend it.

February 10, 2017

We went to the Grand Palladium for our honeymoon and did enjoy our time. This was our very first time to Mexico. We stayed in the Mayan Suites which was adults only and ended up on the far corner of the property. Perfect for us!! The only people who walked by our place were the workers. We only had to walk through some palm trees to get to the beach. We loved the outdoor shower and the room setup. The housekeepers did a great job with our room and left us different animals made from the towels. We loved our room!! And especially the closeness to the beach. Everyone that worked there was extremely friendly! We only speak english and they were all bilingual. Everyone said hi to us and the hotel even called several times to make sure we were happy with our stay. The beach was not quite what we expected. The sand was very compact and hard unless you were right at the water line. There was a ton of seaweed, which they did try to rake up every day. There is a large stretch of narrow beach next to the property which is nice to walk. There seems to be a lot to do for kids and families and there are a lot of bars, but we were on our honeymoon and are not big drinkers, so did not find that there was a lot to really "do" at the resort. We very much enjoyed our time relaxing on the beach. There are a lot of activities offered beyond the resort, but they are really expensive (just to rent a jet ski would have been $75 for only 30 minutes!). There is a spa there but that is also very expensive in our opinion. We tried to use the paddle boats at one point but they were full and any other time the boats weren't running because of the wind/surf. The food was the only thing we were really disappointed with. Our first night was the best when we went to El Dorado (a steak restaurant). Breakfast was always great. Lunch was by far the biggest disappointment. We did try several of the dinner restaurants, but the food was very eclectic and not to our taste. It was difficult to find things that we could enjoy. Maybe because we are too Americanized, but El Dorado was the only place we really really enjoyed. The resort boasts about the various buffets, but each buffet offers the same items as the others, so really they should not count as multiple choices. Overall, we enjoyed lounging by the beach and the friendly staff. The water was a beautiful blend of turquoises and the weather was great. We picked a great time of year to go too, because it was not too busy. We only had to wait a max of 10-15 minutes for dinner and only once or twice the whole time.

Grand Palladium not so grand

This resort is not our idea of a beach resort. There are no rooms near beach. Vlllas are far from the lobby and restaurants and even further from the pool and beach. Food in the buffets was not good. Outdoor restaurant had some sort of critters similar to racoons and staff running around with brooms to shoo them off.One even jumped up on my table and took a piece of pizza. At the evening beach restaurant there were raccoons running around and also getting on tables. Just not my idea of a nice meal. Staff was very friendly and most spoke minimal English. We have been to Mexico twice and loved our other resort, but would not go back here.

What's to Love

It's all-inclusive and all-aahmazing - a beachtastic wonderland.

All the restaurants are reservation-free. You can show up on your own schedule.

The Zentropia spa with Swedish massage & the cold bath "eco-meditative" treatment. Brace yourself.

Relaxing in the hammock area and booze snoozing it for an afternoon.

The food options - if you're gluten-free or have allergies they've got a special menu.

Hanging out at the turtle nesting area - you'll love these sweet little babies.

 

What We'd Change

Your legs might hurt after all the walking you'll do here, but the beautiful 300-acre property and all the perks that come with booking make it too good to pass up.

 

Why You Should Go

It's 50 miles south of Cancun airport. It's a drive, but when you arrive, you won't want to leave.

The grounds are massive, so you'll be hoofing it a lot, but there are shuttles to cart you around.

You get four resorts for the price of one - three other Grand Palladiums are a coconut's throw away.

Bring water shoes. Most of the beach is great, but it's rocky where you might want to snorkel.

Six tennis courts along with wave after wave of water sports like kayaking, water polo & more.

Resort Update
Palladium Hotels & Resorts has announced plans to upgrade its Riviera Maya Complex throughout 2017, including incorporating the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa into The Royal Suites Yucatan. This transformation will be completed in various phases starting on June 1, 2017. Construction will mostly take place within the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa and will have minimal impact. All guestrooms within the hotel, the rocky walkway along the water & the salt water pool area will be closed to all guests during the completion of the project. All other areas including the Riviera Lobby, Disco & Theatre, El Jardin Restaurant and the current The Royal Suites Lobby will be closed during certain dates listed below. During times of closure, the areas will not be accessible to guests and should therefore not impact the guest experience.

Below is a complete project timeline:

Disco & Theatre:
June 1-November 1, 2017: Construction will be in progress in the Disco and Theatre of the current Grand Palladium Riviera Resort & Spa. During this time, alternate entertainment venues will be provided to guests. Once construction to the Disco and Theatre are complete, the Disco will convert to become one of four exclusive restaurants available to guests of The Royal Suites Yucatan and the Theatre will become the second exclusive restaurant providing guests with a Dinner and Show themed experience referred to as the Cabaret.

Riviera Lobby and Kabah Buffet:
June 1-September 15, 2017: Construction will be in progress at the current Riviera Lobby which will convert to the new The Royal Suites Lobby. Guests will not be affected by this construction since all guestrooms in Riviera will be closed. All hotel services will be available at the adjoining White Sand, Colonial and Kantenah Lobbies.

Construction will also be in progress at the Kabah Buffet. During this time, breakfast, lunch and dinner will be available at La Laguna as well as the other restaurants within the Riviera Maya Complex.

The renovated Kabah Buffet will feature 2 separate sections (1 buffet exclusively available to guests of The Royal Suites and 1 for guests of Grand Palladium).

El Jardin Restaurant & the current The Royal Suites Lobby:
September 16-December 1, 2017: Construction will be in progress at El Jardin restaurant and the current lobby of The Royal Suites. The current lobby for The Royal Suites will convert into 2 separate a la carte restaurants. By this time, the new lobby for The Royal Suites will be open at its new location and the buffet will be available at Kabah.
