    We booked a rental car through kayak. This hotel would not let us through the gate to pick it up. They made us wait for hours in the heat with no concern or kindness. We missed swimming with turtles. Zero stars.

    Great resort, some precautions if you have kids

    I was there with my family and we booked two connecting rooms which were very convenient as the resort is large and rooms may be far apart. The Kantenah is part of a complex with the adjacent Palladium Colonian and Palladium White Dunes. All the three properties share most of the restaurants and amenities and are a 10-15 minutes walk from each other, also connected by a train car. It's not a small boutique resort, but there are beautiful lavish gardens and even in the high season it does not feel crowded. We never waited more than 10-15 minutes for a table at the buffet and reservations at the "a la carte" restaurants were always available if flexible with the time slot. for For breakfast, we had to wait 15-20 minutes to get a high chair for our kids at the buffet, this is something should be improved. The pools and the beach are large enough for every guest and beach chairs available most of the time. My son picked up impetigo from the kids club or from the high chairs at the restaurant. The hostess at the buffet was offering hand sanitizer, but we did not notice any frequent deep cleaning of the kids stuff throughout the day and after every use. I hope there will be different policies now with Covid-19. Beside this problem, we enjoyed staying at this property and it's highly recommended for a family vacation.

    My family recently stayed at the Grand Palladium Kanteneh resort. We really wanted to recognize Gesica for her excellent service at the main pool. She was polite, courteous, and efficient. We found ourselves looking for her every day. Thank you Gesica !!!!

    Paradise ruined

    We have stayed at this fantastic hotel 4 times, but on this occasion it was not a positive one.the hotel decided to close on the day we were due to depart, so for a week before this they started closing some of the bars, restaurants, entertainment, pools without any prior notice or information. so we don’t feel we had the holiday experience we had paid for on this occasion

    Me and my partner stayed here for 11 nights a couple of weeks ago and we absolutely loved it. The staff are so friendly and happy 24/7 (despite some rather rude and demanding guests). The choice of food available is unbelievable, so tasty and excellent quality. We ate at 8 of the 9 restaurants and 1 night at the buffet. 7 out of the 8 restaurants were lovely and we really enjoyed them. The food on offer at the buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner is great. Everything from pizza to salads and freshly carved meat. The main bar in Colonial gets a bit busy during the evenings but we never waited more than 5 minutes for a drink. There's so many cocktails on the menu and the bar staff are happy to make you anything you request. The room itself was spacious and clean and the rest of the resort was constantly being cleaned. The beach is lovely but a it's a bit rocky walking into the sea. On a clear day you can see the fish swimming around you. We watched a couple of the shows which were good and we went to the White Party on the beach on the Monday which was fun. I don't really get why people are complaining about the walking, we enjoyed walking to the different restaurants and pools and walking off a big lunch! We did a couple of day trips to Tulum and the Cenotes (not with the resort) and I would recommend doing that if you can. It's easy enough to stay in the resort as everything you need is there but it was nice to see some real Mexico. We jumped on the 'bus' which was cheap but be prepared to not wear a seatbelt! The only complaint I would have is about some of the other guests. We couldn't believe how rude and demanding and obnoxious some people were. The staff were always on hand to help and the entitlement of certain (American) groups of guests was awful. Despite that, me and my partner will definitely be returning :)
