Situated on the North coast between Negril and Montego Bay, Jamaica’s Grand Palladium Resort offers rest, relaxation and entertainment to travelers from around the world.
Surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and lush tropical greenery, the Grand Palladium offers over 500 rooms – all of which are Jr Suites. Guests can choose from two double beds or one King size bed. The bathroom offers ultimate relaxation with a jacuzzi tub and a marble shower big enough for two people. After you’ve freshened up from your flight, grab a Red Stripe Jamaican beer from your personal mini fridge (on the house!) and stroll out to your personal and private balcony to take in the view of the crystal blue Caribbean sea. Afterwards you can check up on what’s going on back in the states with satellite television, or enjoy the local shows on your flat screen tv.
By now you’re probably ready to get your body moving and feel the sunshine on your face. Guests have access to the top of the line gym, zen themed day spa or water sports down at the beach such as kayaking, snorkeling and windsurfing. Why choose just one? There’s plenty of time to enjoy them all. Not sure the kids would enjoy the spa? No problem, mon. Children 4 – 12 can have their own age appropriate fun at the Kid Cove mini club with scheduled activities, music, lessons and more.
Hungry yet? Take a stroll through perfectly manicured grounds and explore the ten different restaurants with a wide range of flavors such as Indian, seafood, Asian, Jamaican, Mexican and more. If you crave a la carte variety then you don’t want to miss the Negril and Mo’Bay buffets which offer a different experience every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not a fan of standing in line? The VIP option allows you to call ahead and make reservations so you’re never left standing. Even without the VIP perk, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and efficiently the staff seats you and takes care of your every culinary need.
After your tummy is full and the day is cooling off – put on your dancing shoes and head to the Boogie Woogie Discotheque, enjoy a live show at the resort cabaret or just watch the sun set from one of the ten different bars; including the Blue Lagoon swim up bar!
Adjoining the Palladium is the Lady Hamilton Resort with both family friendly, adult only and honeymoon suites. Guests are free to use the facilities and restaurants in BOTH resorts – no matter which one you’ll be staying at. Don’t forget to take advantage of the complementary shuttle service between the two sides of the property so you can save your feet for your trips into town!
The Best Part
Did I mention the resort is all inclusive? That means… everything you need for an enjoyable stay is included in your room price; even gratuities. Restaurants, buffets, non-motorized water activities, shows, beverages (including alcohol for guests 18+) and even your mini-bar which is restocked daily – all included and unlimited. Room fees vary according to season and local events taking place – but you will find that you can experience Jamaican hospitality, food and entertainment for around the same price as a hotel in your local city. Yes, really!
My stay at the Palladium wasn’t memorable….it was breathtaking. Once you finally adjust to the beautiful grounds and accommodations surrounding you, then get a good taste of the amazing foods prepared by quality chefs – the staff’s warm, helpful and friendly manner will blow you away. It may have been my first time in Jamaica – but the staff made sure I felt like an old friend. They truly make this resort a paradise.
