Grand Palladium Vallarta
Best staff. Roberto in guest service provided the best service we have ever received at a resort. He helped us several times was most attentive and always followed up to check on our needs. He was the best!
Regina Sask chair hogs!
Cons: The worst case of guest chair hogging I have ever seen. For eg, 2 couples from Regina, Sask (early 60’s one fella had eagle wings tattooed on entire chest, the other fella had a bad bowl hair cut,) They would put towels on 8 seats around the pool (4 in the sun and 4 in the shade). This meant so many people could not enjoy the pool. Also, they were rarely using these chairs. After 4-5 days of this I saw that they also had 4 chairs on the beach. I immediately came to the pool and removed their towels from the pool chairs. People around the pool were quite happy about my actions when I explained why I did this. It was actually amusing to see the Regina people had a tantrum when they came back to the pool at 1500 hours after holding these chairs for 8 hours and not using them. Entitled Jerks! Also, On the first day my wife was sitting in chair and bad haircut man started removing our towels because no “personal” affects were on the chairs except for our towels! Wife blasted him. Hotel is really showing its age but I hear a Reno may be coming. Pros Staff are all amazing! I was impressed with everyone. We were travelling with. A couple who belong to the. A action club. Top notch service! Location is flipping amazing. With a beautiful beach.
The buffet food wasn't the best we've had at the resorts. The 5 star restaurants were good though. The floor didn't get cleaned in 4 days until we asked. The shower wasn't hot until 8 in the morning. The bar didn't give you more than a splash of alcohol and lots of ice.
No complaints other than the food in buffet was always cold except for the cooking stations. Good food but always cold. Resort is very isolated, which we knew and were ok with but for those looking for things to see and do off resort will be spending time and money getting to places. Very remote.
A nice vacation!
The resort was very beautiful. Beach was very nice and the rock pool in the sea was a treat! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food was very good. The only thing we did not care about was that the resort played rather loud music at the adult pool area until mid night. People who stay at Villa 1 with ocean view had to tolerate this (music became noise when you wanted to fall in asleep...).
