Hi, We are undecided which resort to go to in Jan/12, We've been to Sirenis and Gran Sunset Princess. Is it the Grand Palladium Colonial resort & spa you were at? It looks like a very large resort area. How far from Akumal would it be and is there any good snorkelling close to resort?

We went to the Grand Palladium Kantenah...Yes, Its huge....We didn't leave the resort but I dont think its far from Akumal.

The snorkeling was great..My husband even saw a lobster while snorkeling!

Make sure you visit the salt water pool...it's so beautiful!

My biggest tips would be to visit the spa & salt water pool...Last time we went the last day & were sorry we didn't go sooner!

Also, we thought the chinese restaurant was terrible...

Hi Lisa - how long does it take to walk from the salt water pool back to the Kantenah side? We are thinking of booking the Riviera section but would want to make it over to the kids club in the afternoons. Thanks for your help,

Lynne-

We never walked it. It's really far so you will probably want to take a ride on the golf cart. If you get a nice driver they will take you all the way there. We tipped the drivers well so they didn't mind.

I have been there 15 x and going back in December. From the flags at the north end to the salt water pool at the southe end it is exactly one mile.

We loved Bamboo, the Chinese restaurant and always have fun at the Sumptuori Japanese show table.

From Riviera to kids club is ot too bad. Just use a golf cart.

Resort is large but good transportation. I can't post my link here but you can PM me or ask. If I'm around I'll post.

PMAL, I highly recommend the Palladium for all that it offers. It is an awesome resort. Regardless of what type of vacation you are looking for, a quiet relaxing scenario, or a fun, action filled stay, the Palladium fits the bill. You have great snorkeling right off their beautiful beach, all types of wonderful food at their various restaurant facilities, flowing drinks and friendly, yet professional service.

For a unique afternoon, I suggest you take the Segway Tour. It was so much fun and I was surprised how quickly one learns to operate the machine.

Don't just take my word regarding the resort, you can research every aspect of the complex at the palladiumaddict.com website, where thousands of travelers post their Palladium experiences, along with photos, trip reviews and advice on how to have the best vacation. Good luck and enjoy planning your next get away.
