    Just returned from a most amazing trip for a friends wedding at GPPV! This was our 3rd trip to this same resort and it was by far our favourite experience. From the check in to our room, our Bellman Hassam made it a breeze! Our Deluxe Ocean view room had a great overlook of the surf and only several steps from the adult pool. Victor the bartender at the pool was always around with drinks whenever needed! Arturo in the Hemmingway bar was always down to make something “Special” to drink, and very entertaining! Iscel and Juan at the lobby bar were also awesome! I highly recommend a spa experience. Alfredo helped with the bookings and Erika gave the most amazing deep tissue massages for post surf sore shoulders. Paula in housekeeping kept our room perfect everyday! Just an amazing overall experience form start to finish, from all staff and amenities. Looking forward to another visit again soon!!

    Great vacation until the end

    Grand Palladium in Punta Mita is a very nice all inclusive resort. We were only there for 3 nights but enjoyed our time. It's especially great if you like to go surfing. The food was not great but probably above average for most all inclusive resorts. The problem happened when we're tried to leave. We had already scheduled a ride from a trusted friend who has a car service and we use him every time we come to the Puerto Vallarta area. When we left we had to walk to the main road for the pickup because the resort makes you pay 400 pesos if someone other than their taxis picks you up in front. We got to the main road and a man with a walkie talkie showed up and accused us of taking an uber which he said was illegal and they were going to call the police when the uber arrived. We assured him several times that it wasn't an uber but he didn't believe us. When our ride showed up and he realized it wasn't an uber he had two taxis block us from leaving and forced our driver to pay 400 pesos even though we were no longer on hotel property. They had no problem with us being dropped off by the same driver. Our driver told us they are the only resort that does that so keep that in mind when booking.

    This resort is built on the side of a cliff overlooking the ocean. The adult pool is an infinity pool that looks out to the ocean and beach below. All of the restaurants are excellent and the people working in them want you to have a great experience. All of the people who work there are very nice and friendly and helpful. The only thing that could have been better is the balconies attached to the rooms. They are very small, only room for one chair and a table, and if you sat down on the chair, you can’t see over the top of the balcony wall that surrounds it. Also, if you close the sliding door when you are out on the balcony ,there is no door handle to open the door to get back into the room, you have to make sure someone is in the room to let you back in. Otherwise, it was a wonderful vacation

    excellent value, great food, semi-crowded but not bad. lots of activities or just relaxation available. We were upgrade a room to ocean view with hot tub outside upon arrival and we felt it was worth the extra money to upgrade. the view was amazing and the "cold" tub outside was nice.

    While the rooms were nice and cool due to the controllable air conditioner, everywhere else you went you sweat! The rooms weren't anything to rave about and be prepared to walk A LOT. The whole resort is stairs and inclined walkways.
