    Well, what can I say, this resort is fantastic in every way. There are so many staff members to mention, so many pleasant memories. Let's start with The Nest restaurant. Martin, our breakfast and lunch waiter was extraordinary. In his words, "With Martin, anything is possible." Oh, Martin, that was so true. We felt like royalty at The Nest. You were so welcoming. Thank you. To name a few of the meals we enjoyed for breakfast, there's the eggs benedict, omelette, pancakes, and the crispy bacon is to die for. So many juices to choose from. You have to eat here!!! Then there is Hemingway's, the adult bar, where you can get coffee/tea and warn pastries in the morning, and coffee and drinks throughout the day, all served by friendly staff. We didn't see the entertainment, but were told it was worth watching. Our biggest (and best) surprise was at the Family Selection bar. OSCAR IS BACK !!!!! He's the bar tender of all bartenders. Not only is he friendly and speaking some pretty good English, but he makes his special drinks that you will not find anywhere else. Ask for an Oscar Special when you meet Oscar. Well presented and tasty. We miss you already, Oscar. Welcome back. Oh, and a big thank you to Mateo at the checkin for his excellent translation skills. We are grateful to you. Plus, we hope to see Ramon back at the desk again. We hope your son is well. As for the family pool bar, Antonio and Martin are serving up the drinks with a smile and with flair. And Efran, despite the extreme heat, you whisked around the entire huge pool area to make sure everyone had a refreshment. Your shoes would be very difficult to fill. Many thanks from me, my husband and my daughter. You rock!!!! We ate dinner at the Italian restaurant two nights in a row. I would have gone for a third or even fourth, but I had to be fair to my family who wanted to try the other restaurants. I had the chicken parmesan, so tender, so flavourful, with top-notch service. The main buffet is also a must-do, with amazing service. Our dear friend Bernie at the infinity pool bar is a man you must meet. Always ready with a smile, Bernie makes superb drinks. His associate Edgar is fantastic. Thank you both!! We do not have young children, but if we did, this resort would be #1 on our list. There's always something for the children to do. And lastly, we must say that we were so pleased to meet so many Mexicans. What wonderful, friendly people. Thanks to all!!!

    We stayed at the Grand Palladium Vallarta Nov 6 to the 13 2019. We had such a amazing time! The service, food,location, everything was fantastic. Ed from the water sports center was our favorite! If you eat at El Dorado,ask for Santiago,he was excellent! Martin at the swim up bar, Ceasar and Erik from the front lobby were great! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We cannot wait to go back, wish we would of stayed 2 weeks!

    i stayed here during my summer holidays and honestly it was a trip of a lifetime! what made the resort especially welcoming was most definitely the entertainment team- always encouraging games, dancing and other activities. In particular, Ali was extremely friendly and encouraged a fun atmosphere when dancing in the evenings at the shows and club later on. Thankyou!
