What's the difference? GP / GPLH

Can someone please tell me the difference between the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa and the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton? The pictures look the same to me. Is this one resort or two? Is it up & running yet--Properly? My husband & I are going in Nov. 08. I've read some of the forum, looks pretty grim so far. Can anyone help with getting a upgrade from JR. Suite to the 1-bedroom suite...cheaply??

They are two separate hotels...sort of.

The Palladium Jamaica is open...sort of. The Lady Hamilton is not open at all.

It is a construction zone that is hosting a few guests at the moment.

Dosent sound too good so far. I hope things are up & running smoother when we arrive. Did get a hopefully fair deal on the vacation package though. I think I will check out there web site to see about an upgrade. Any suggestions?

Considering in two main factors.

One being you may of actually gotten a good deal.

&

Two, November things {though still not 100%} but may be adequate to some degree.

This is opposed to what has been my point thus far which to date was the fact that some people from abroad were scammed into paying far from what would be considered a value for what were otherwise horrible start up conditions.

And it is still being advertised as a good bargain, and a place ready to go and fully open...no mention of ongoing construction and stolen sand.
