Location of the Grand Palladium Colonial . . .
The Grand Palladium Colonial is an approximately one- and one-half hour direct ride from the CancunInternationalAirport. The resort is located near the town of Akumal and approximately 25 minutes from the hotel is the town of Playa del Carmen. The hotel is perfectly situated in the heart of the Mayan sightseeing district.
Ecological ... Tropical … and Natural . . .
The Grand Palladium Colonial is ecological with bright-colored gardens, wildlife, palm trees, mangroves and flowing water throughout. This construction of the resort was a monumental fete. Guests will find lighted and marked pathways for walking the property(s).
Two Trains (Purchased in Italy), one red and one green navigate the resort Grand's complex, stopp
ing to pick up guests at marked points along the complex and dropping guests off at the lobbies of all four hotels. This allows easy access for guests to get from one hotel to
another within the complex. Guests were having a great time riding the trains, especially when the trains go over the bridges. One afternoon a young girl (age 11) was on train. She informed us that since arriving at the hotel she has been riding the trains continuously because it was so much fun. Everyone was laughing as she narrated to all on board every feature of the resort. She informed us that her mother and brother were on the beach but had nothing to worry about because security would not allow her to leave the hotel. The child was such a delight!
Jogging. Early each morning we noted guests running the walkways around the resorts.
“Stay at one, play at four” . . .
Guests staying at the property have full access to all of the facilities, bars and restaurants within the complex with the exception of the "Adults Royal.
The complex is large, yet guests experience the feeling of low density due the skillful design of the property. We noted that we seldom left the comfort of our hotel to venture out to the other hotels in the complex. One morning Maria decided to time her walk from one end of the resort to the other. The time: 25-minutes.
Grand Palladium Colonial Guest Rooms. All of the guest rooms (Standard, Junior Suites, Suites, and Mayan Suites) are luxurious, comfortable and accommodating. The Junior Suites are spacious and comfortable and feature a whirlpool bath.
The décor of the guestrooms is Mexican. The floors are polished marble tile. The bed and wall dressings are bright and cheerful. Walls are sponge-texture painted with bright colors. The dark wood furniture Colonial and light wood furniture at the Kantenah, is elegant and comfortable. An large armoire is located across from the bed. Inside the armoire is a remote controlled satellite television on a swivel base with 30 channels. Underneath the television guests will find a mini-refrigerator that is stocked three-times a week with soft drinks, domestic beer and bottled water. Each room has a programmable safe and also a coffee-maker, ironing board and iron. A sliding glass door leads to a private patio or balcony for guests to view the magnificent grounds and pools. The chair named "Miquelito" is of a Spanish design and is in each room and is eye catching!
The Grand Palladium Colonial's large marble bathroom is the best-of-the-best with a double vanity, hair-dryer, more than adequate lighting, huge marble shower, smoked glass door to the water closet. The bathroom features a well-stocked basket of amenities (shampoo, bath gel, sewing kit, shower cap).
For adult couples, we recommend the Mayan Suites. The Mayan Suites are housed in three-story buildings and feature a large sleeping area, marble bath with whirlpool bath and a glass sliding door leading to the open air (private) Mayan Shower. The Mayan Suites are a wonderful honeymoon option.
Dining Options . . .
Guests have the selection of dining at any of the restaurants (buffet and á la carte) in the complex. .
Dining is all about food preference and there are so many options that one will never be bored and even the most finicky diner will be satisfied.
Pools . . .
All clients can use the five swimming pools
The the large lagoon pool is the "pride" of the grand hotel. Prior to departure from your home, buy a good quality raft to float around the pool. Take the raft to your room and keep on the patio and balcony.
Lagoon Pool descriptions:

Grand Palladium Colonial Spa and Fitness Center:
During your vacation, schedule an appointment for one of the many spa treatments at the Grand Spa. This large spa is most likely one of the most spectacular spas in Riviera Maya. The spa features winding pools, whirlpools, 17 indoor massage cabins, outdoor massage cabins (great for midnight massages), a large gym equipped with the finest equipment, a beauty salon and much more. The spa is impressive
Grand Palladium Colonial Entertainment . . .
Entertainment options are varied and wonderful! The theater is located adjacent to lobby and is open-aired. The resort offeres waiter service for drinks (in glass not plastic) at the theater. The caliber of the entertainment is top-notch.
Grand Palladium Colonial Kid's Club. . .
The hotel is well-known for their fabulous children's program featuring daily social, recreational and sports activities for children ages 4-to 12-years. A nice feature of the Kids Club is the location - near the beach where parents can view the children playing. The area is fenced in and offers structured activities.
