Beachside Getaway

The Grand Palladium was fantastic. I've been to Mexico a few times and this place topped the cake, our visit was all made by the staff though. The staff at the Grand Palladium go out of their way to ensure you have an amazing stay. Myself I suffer from food allergies and I was greatly surprised to learn on check in that they have 'allergy cards' that offers descriptions of your food allergy in both english and spanish so when visiting any of the restaurants I knew I could be guaranteed that the food I was eating would not cause any challenges. This was amazing and would be perfect for parents with children too. The location of the resort is just perfect, far enough away from the hustle and bustle to feel secluded and on a divine beach with waves, snorkelling and all the hire you can think of (included). You'll love the Grand Palladium!!

Great weeklong getaway

Conveniently located just 40 mins from the Puerto Vallarta ariport the Grand Palladium was a great value vacation. The hotel staff was welcoming, the rooms were clean, comfortable, and cool. There were several pools to choose from; the adult pool and the salt water pool being our favorite. The pools were clean and pleasant. The food at the main dining hall was a miss, but the food at the themed restaurants was a hit! There are lots of stairs, but, unless you just cant find anything else to complain about, they do not deter from your experience. The beachtown of Sayulita is only 30 mins away, highly recommend.

The good and bad reviews I had read are accurate

The whole place is a little run down. We gave a generous tip at check in and asked for a king bed. The receptionist wasn't too happy about my request and I believe was given the worst room with a king. Fridge was nicely stocked but warm. Bathtub had broken tiles and not seal properly. The cleaning was so so. Forgot to put a tip on the bed one day and it showed. Food was good in most part, Bambu (Asian) was excellent. All the a la carte was very good except for the Italian that was horrible and we ended up going to the buffet. The snack place by the main pool was a little freaky with the birds (black crows) flying in on people's plate. Not good. The services was excellent. The hard working staff are happy to serve you. The pools are very dirty. Our swimsuits are still soaking all stained with green stuff (algae) perhaps? Water cloudy, bottom slimy, floaters etc. Ocean and beach lots of seaweed and water very rough, good for surfing. Went in 2 times and it was just okay. Not powdery beach little rocky bottom ocean. Bar, drinks and entertainment. Great drinks served with a smile. We tip our servers very well, maybe that helps. They work super hard you see the same people from early morning till super late at night. I think they work like 18 hours a day and was told they work 6 days a week. At last, there are about 80 percent local Mexicans vacationing there, very different than other places I have been. We would not give this place more than a 3 star.

It was great EXCEPT...

Great resort with great service. Tons of dining options, several restaurants. Loved the options of the ocean, infinity pool, and saltwater pool. The only thing that was a problem was that EVERY night there was a very loud wedding with tons of blasting music until at least midnight. So we could not go to sleep. The only option to change would be for us to not have an oceanview room. So basically we were punished because the oceanview suites were facing the wedding area. That is something they really should tell guests. Very disappointed about that.

What's to Love

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

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.
