Spent New Years at Palladium. Fabulous. Check out Royal Yucatan adults only section.

true but strict dress code for alacartes at Palladium

We actually had a soft bed at ABR last month but if a fridge is your major criteria try CRT

Or buy a cooler and beer in Akumal and get the ice from the bar

Keep asking ?

No strict dress codes at the palladium - they just expect men to wear long pants and not a vest top for dinner (which is similiar to most of the hotels)

Palladium is a great resort, Akumal is gorgeous, awesome beaches, diving and snorkelling, turtles and the rooms have comfy beds and fridges

How big is which resort?? the Catalonia Royal tulum or the Palladium?? Not sure which one you are inquiring about??

The CRT is adults only...smaller property, fridges in room. Close to Akumal bay via collectivo or taxi...

The Grand Palladium is several properties in one. You can make it as big or small as you want by venturing to the sister property ex: Colonial/kanenah/ White sands etc....a great website to explore to learn about the palladium etc is: http://www.palladiumaddict.net/

both properties are very nice. I suggested the CRT because you mentioned Adults only. Good luck w/ your research

I'm having the same problem, good snorkeling is my no 1 priority but some of the riviews and photos of ABR are a bit off putting considering it is going to cost me quite a bit. So also keen to know what would be the other resorts to go to where the snorkeling is also good?
