What We Love

  • If you're vegetarian, they've got taste bud-slaying food choices, and no reservations required at any of the restaurants.
  • The ever-helpful & friendly staff - they're the crowning jewel of this awesome place.
  • The delish Jamaican coffee in the cafe. Perfect any time.

Things to Know

  • It's just a half hour from airport, but in Jamaica you'll feel the vacay vibe the second you arrive.
  • There are sister privileges next door at the Lady Hamilton.
  • Maximize your vacay hours by checking pick-up times on scheduled transfers.
Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa is nestled in the lush tropical flora of a mountainous landscape. This is an all-inclusive resort where you can block out reality and enter the Chill Zone during your time away.

All-inclusive means a stress-free getaway: drinks, food and activities at this resort are all included in the price of your vacay! Enjoy the 86,000 square foot infinity pool that blends into the turquoise sea or slip into a Zen spa experience with Turkish baths. For a fee, you can enjoy sailing, scuba diving, the fitness center and more. On land, there's tennis, archery, mini-golf and for bigger greens, tee off at the Tryall golf course. Grab a Red Stripe and kick back. The sounds of Jamaican bliss is waiting.

    Our family truly had a wonderful time. We traveled in a large group (2 families with children) and truly enjoyed ourselves. I was disappointed in the video game room was not available and the sports area was not in as good of shape as we would have hoped. Loved the friendliness of the bartenders -- however the men seemed much friendlier and willing to accommodate than the women.

    What a disappointment.

    We loved the staff and the grounds but the room and some amenities were a huge letdown. Our room was old and dismal. The bedroom didn’t have a dresser for clothes; it was the same cabinet that stored the refrigerator in the living room. The lighting was poor, the shower leaked, the faucet in the sink was broken. The couch was actually a futon so it was incredibly uncomfortable. Our room was the furthest from the lobby, which made it a long walk. The shuttle service is non-existent as is room service. The food is average. Breakfast is a buffet. Lots of choices but the same thing day after day. We had no trouble getting seated for dinner. NOTE to company trying to sell us loyalty club: don’t put us in a crummy room and then expect us to buy into it.

    2 Weeks of Bliss!

    We stayed here for 2 weeks from January 24-February 7. We had our rooms upgraded to the Lady Hamilton side which allowed us to have the most beautiful sunsets right from our balcony. Week 1 we were with 6 other couples and the 2nd week we had another couple arrive. Although everyone was on the complete opposite end of the resort you could still get around and everyday you could spend a different spot on the resort. There is a ton of walking but it's nice to work off all the food and booze, they have a shuttle to get you around as well. The service in some of the restaurants was frustrating but now that time has passed it's not that bad looking bad......especially now that we are fortunate to have got away before this whole COVID-19 Pandemic. All in all I would recommend this resort to anyone, the rooms are a little more modern on the Lady Hamilton side but the Jamaica side has nicer rooms as far as I was concerned. The biggest complaint I would have with this resort is the booze, being a Canadian we enjoy our Rye Whisky, if you paid out the ying yang you could get Crown Royal but I've already paid out the ying yang to come so I'm not paying more for booze that is already included. They have Canadian LTD which should be taken off the shelf and have the name changed, that firewater is brewed in Kentucky or something crazy and in no way should have the name Canadian in it. Vodka was good ( Absolute, Smirnoff & Stolichnaya), beer is Red Stripe, if you slip a few bucks you can get a bottle at the Infiniti Bar otherwise it's draft. They have Bud Light in the rooms but it's garbage, been shipped too far around the world. For the rum drinkers...you can't go wrong with Appleton! I drank Jack Daniels most of the time, that's why we only made midnight a few times..haha. We did the Catarmaran tour from the resort c/o Sadie, it was great because it was mostly us on the boat. The boat was ALOT dated, they ran out of beer and didn't have food until we got to Margaritaville's but it was still fun. The resort could do away with the people trying to sell you spa packages all the time, that part drove me nuts. Also, the photographers should do it totally different and ask people for their room numbers or names so they can post the photos so you can see them. We had so many pictures taken of us but then they wouldn't leave us their name or card or anything. Sorry, I'm getting long winded here. I wish I could go to Jamaica now instead of being hunkered down in self-isolation in my base

    Well done to staff

    Just returned from trip during COVID-19 stay. Group of seven and down to last 35 guests by the end of the trip. We would want to thank staff who remained professional to the end during an incredibly difficult time when worried for health and jobs. Respect to you all. Lovely resort and would love to return at some point in the future. Thank you.

    Corona virus escape!

    We enjoyed our stay very much. Some restaurants were better than others but on the whole the food was very good. The desserts at the dinner restaurants were not very good though. A key lime pie I tried was like rubber.
