  • We just returned from the Palladium in the Riviera Maya and everything was perfect. We went to the Tulum Ruins, did an ATV tour and swam in several cenotes, went deep sea fishing, shopped in Playa del Carmen and snorkeled off the beach from the resort. I would highly recommend this resort. - Miriam L. - Aug. ‘05
  • Great resort, highly recommend - Bernadette O. - Dec. ‘04
  • The buffets were decent, but the sit-down restaurants were bad. The food was poor quality and badly prepared. In fact, we just found the buffets were better overall. The alcohol choices were very limited and generally poor quality. I would not recommend this resort to anyone. I gave the resort location a good rating since it was secluded and had a very nice beach. This resort has very little to offer. That being said, the two lobbies and the swimming pool were attractive and relaxing, but it is tough to make seven days out of those things alone. - Michael J. - Oct. ‘04
  • Room damp; TV volume set too loud on lowest level and not adjustable; restaurants not accommodating to larger groups or reservations; food quality is average; alcohol quality poor and watered down; no options with beer. - Karen M. - Oct. ‘04
  • The resort was beautiful and the food was great-they had a huge variety of food and at the restaurants they let us order as many dishes as we wanted. - Kelly A. - Aug. ‘04
  • The resort was awesome. We felt like royalty for a week. It was really nice. The meals were very good for the most part. - Melissa D. - Jul. ‘04
  • Palladium Resort is a great place to have a vacation. - Michael & Heather K. - Jul. ‘04
  • This resort is very well maintained. The staff are all very nice and more than willing to do whatever it takes to make you happy. This resort is a bit of a drive from the airport but worth every minute. If you like the hustle and bustle of downtown Cancun this is not the place for you! However, if you just simply want to relax by the pool or on the beach this is your spot. the food was overall very good. I am a very picky eater but always found something that I liked. The steak house was a nice sit down service meal with good food. I highly recommend this resort to anyone needing to get away! - Corey J. - Jun. ‘04
  • The first room they put us in was a Standard room, not the Junior Suite we reserved. We called the desk and after the bellboy explained the situation to them, we got our Suite in a timely manner. We did not have a King-sized bed as requested. Mattresses are HARD!! All-in-all we had a wonderful vacation. - Thomas N. - May '03
  • Loved the resort! This resort was the most beautiful place I have ever been. The food was great, as was the room and the lagoon size swimming pool. I would highly recommend this resort. - Betsy A. - Apr. '03
  • I felt that the staff at the hotel frowned upon our group of 12. We had a hard time making reservations for the a la carte dinners and at the buffet the host was extremely rude and would not accommodate our group of 12. - Joan M. - Apr. '03
