Not our fave and wouldn't stay there again

We were hopeful when we were picked up by a new beautiful transport bus and then drove about 45 minutes from the airport to the hotel. Once at the hotel We were quite disappointed upon arrival, the front desk staff became rude when we chose not to upgrade and appeared annoyed when i asked for rooms close by we had reserved 3 and i had asked in a prior email. Once in our rooms all 3 of them had issues with the A/C. My hubby and i along with my brother room was fixed rather quickly but my moms room was never fixed completely. The room itself was okay, however i was dissappointed to see that room service food trays sit out in the halls for hours at a time before it was clear. This resort also is not very handicapped/have difficulty walkings it isnt friendly as its very hilly and no elevators only stairs. The food in the buffets was the same every day and if you weren't there early enough, it took a while to get replenished. The wait staff in the buffet ignored my family completly on a couple occassions even after my hubby tried to speak to a manager. We did enjoy the resturants and had the best service at the Mexican resturant. I did love the fact you could eat at an al carte resturant without reservations and each night of your stay if you chose. The pools were nice first thing in the morning but has the day went on they werent maintained and had leaves, straws, branches ect floating in them and it felt dirty. The pool bar had very nice staff but it was at times hard to get a drink and the bar area wasn't kept clean either. They did offer top shelf liquors. We did love the beach and there were a variety of non motorized water toys you could borrow. Defintely not as breathtaking as the carribean but about the onlygood part of the resort. We did take a city tour one day and we also i had one of the transportation guys get us a taxi to go to a near by local town. Departure was slightly dissappointing as we had booked private transport back and were given and old taxi, nothing like we rode in on. We won't be back to this specifc resort mostly because of the service and the faculties themselves. We wanted to try somewhere new and we learned that tbe Rivera Maya is way more beautiful and better overall than Rivera Nayarit.

Nice and breezy!

Resort has the best breezes of any all inclusive I've stayed. Cut into the side of the hill adjacent to the beach, this uniquely landscaped property is overall a tremendous value. Many families and children so we choose the adult only pool and for the most part, many of the American and European visitors did the same. The zoo was interesting but rather dirty and smelly. Spa was average. 4 restaurants and 1 buffet and Chris the restaurant manager was doing a great job. We had an issue one night in the Ribs and more steakhouse and he worked diligently to correct it. Viva Mexico was super fresh; we loved the table side guacamole. Bambunserved some of the best resort sushi I have ever had. Delicious! Elba, our room steward was very detailed and kind. Victor and Mattias at the pool bar rocked the drinks and snacks and even helped provide a little Soanish lesson as needed! "no nada....."! Some opportunities with overall friendliness of staff (Patricia in the gift shop was rude) and timeliness of the dinner courses coming out but, we had a really great time.

One of the nicest resorts I've visited

Just returned from Grand Palladium Resort and would definitely go back. We've been to many all inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean and Grand Palladium is one of the BEST for the value. Normally I'm not a fan of the buffet's but theirs had a lot of choices and the food was fresh. The staff was one of the friendliest and most accommodating I've experienced. Adult pool is quiet enough where it's almost like you're at an adult only resort. If you get a chance definitely visit this resort. Only negative is not much of a beach and if you have issues with stairs you wouldn't do well here.

Mixed Review

Beach is great! Nice and secluded. While here cleaning staff walked in on me twice while I was changing/naked (note: hotel deadbolts don't work, use the little separate lock). The buffet was good, but took me a few days to catch on to where things were, and what was good. The food at the restaurants was average. I expected a step up from the buffet food, but it was on the same level. None of the food here wow-ed me. I LOVED the little zoo here! I did not mind the slight zoo scent, but this could be an issue for other guests.

What's to Love

Golden beaches, lush vegetation & gardens surrounding the resort that are impressive.

No reservations needed at any of the restaurants.

Working on your tan lines at one of the resorts three pools - the infinity pools views are aah-mazing.

A kid-friendly resort with clubs for all ages, waterparks and a "Raggs" show, starring five musical pups.

Grabbing a frosty margarita at Viva Mexico and watching the sun set into the Pacific.

Beachy and land activities - like volleyball, tennis, catamarans, snorkeling and more.

 

What We'd Change

At 45 minutes to the Puerto Vallarta airport, the resort is definitely a bit of a drive, but quiet seclusion is one of the highlights.

 

Why You Should Go

You must take in the scenery as you venture to the resort - it's about 45 minutes to paradise.

Beachtown Sayulita is only 30 minutes and highly recommended - fun little shops and surfing.

Spending "you time" at Zentropia Spa, but if you want to dip into the spa pools, it will be an extra cost.

Be sure to check out the on-site mini zoo. Fab picture opp spot - say "beach!"

The seawater pool is adjacent to the ocean and includes a beach area, loungers and umbrellas.
