Just back from a 4 night break , lovely hotel staff very polite and helpful food very good choice and fresh .. Now the bad point paid quite a lot of money for the 4 nights stay the hotel is very clean but the bed was like sleeping on a door it was terrible told reception who said that they would inform housekeeping thinking that they might put a mattress topper on , but no they put a blanket on top of mattress . I'm very disappointed thought they might have done more but they where not interested would have gone to another hotel but they make you pay in full on arrival , so back home now with bags under my eyes and a bad back !

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 2129

My fiancee and I stayed here last year, its a lovely hotel in a good location.
The hotel itself is lovely, the pools are gorgeous, right near the beach, and the spa is lovely too.
As people have said the food isnt 5 star worthy, but the two speciality resteraunts where very nice, and as all inclusives go there was a good selection.
The beach bar never seemed to be open and no staff seemed to know when it opened, there was no where serving food outside lunch hours which was a pity if ud been out and missed lunch. The pool entertainment was also annoying and they would never take no when we didnt want to play the games.
Otherwise a lovely hotel, not a true 5 star though.

I will start with the only minus the hotel has which is the food. The quality is good but I would expect something more from a 5 star hotel. I have never seen such poor choice of sweets and desserts, even in three star hotels! What is more, on the first two days of our stay they put so much water to pepsi machine that it was almost tasteless!
Now the good sides. It is a spacious hotel with plenty of sunbeds and two big pools so
it is not crowded and you do not feel the presence of other people.
It is very clean and I cannot say a bad word about the rooms though the bed is a little too hard for me.
Location is also an advantage if you look for a quiet hotel near the clubs or discos. It is possible to get to Ibiza town on foot or by bus.

Just got from from a three day break. Booked it last minute and so glad we did. All the staff were so helpful and polite and spoke good English.
We were in room 2202 on the first floor. The room was spacious clean and had everything you could need. A mini bar stock with soft drinks and water and a large flat screen television. A beautiful bathroom with a proper hair dryer and toiletries. We had a lovely view of the nature reserve with flamingos from our balcony it was lovely and peaceful.
The main restaurant was large clean and the food was varied and plentiful. Soft drinks and wine served by waiters. We ate at the beach bar during the day overlooking the beach and sea . Good food and drinks including shorts. Branded drinks were included such as Smirnoff. The pools were out of this world although not heated they were bearable. The best pools I've seen for a long time. I cannot find anything negative to say just €10 in a taxi from the airport on the beach spotlessly clean would go back in a heart beat. If your lucky enough to go have a great time.

My boyfriend booked this holiday and I wasn't sure what to expect : Ibiza in October? The arrival process was a little lengthy but it gave me a good opportunity to look around. What I noticed immediately? Grand Palladium takes great pride in the cleanliness of their property - every inch! The employees have pride and enjoy their jobs! The bar men never shy away from serving up awesome concoctions and singing whilst doing it.

Important things for management to consider:
The communication of restaurant bookings.

Employees(reservations team/ maître d') were not clear if you had to book to eat at different restaurants or not. We were told we didn't have to book then showed up to the restaurant and told we had to wait 1/2-45 min only to find other couples going straight in as they made a reservation, we then tried to make reservations and we're told we didn't have to. One evening we fancied Italian and arrived at the restaurant only to find it had closed for the season but received no communication about this - which was a real disappointment.

The beach area- not somewhere you want to hang out. Needs some work.

The main inside bar area is lovely however ambiance in the evening is important- turn down the lights after 8! We rarely sat inside because this light were full on bright and it didn't create a welcoming atmosphere.

Despite these issues- I would highly recommend booking a holiday a the Grand Palladium- you won't regret it.

Got married on 6th Oct 2013 & flew out to Ibiza on the 8th for a 5 night Honeymoon. Ibiza wasn't our first choice of honeymoon, we wanted Indian Ocean or Cape Verde but following the expense of a wedding our budget would not allow for this. As neither my Wife or I had been to Ibiza before we thought 'why not?'
We selected the Grand Palladium based on reviews & cost (About £600 for the 2 of us A/I)

On arrival we received a complimentary bottle of champagne in our room from the hotel for our honeymoon. A nice touch.
Although close to the airport we had no aircraft noise issues, but saying that we live close to Leeds/Bradford airport anyway so maybe were used it.

Hotel was nice & clean as were the grounds. Staff kept busy. staff very friendly & helpful
Rooms maybe not 5* but clean & big enough for the 2 of us. nice big balcony with hangers for wet clothes. black out curtains. bed = 2 singles (big singles) pushed together.
Nice large lobby area with plenty of seating & a local info point. Also computers (at a cost) with internet access.
Food excellent....esp. the themed restaurants. 5* food. proper spirits served in bars (ie. Smirnoff, Disaranno)
As we didn't have our Kids with us I cannot really comment on those facilities/entertainment but I noticed games & dances on an evening for the kids & there was a large creche/kids club just outside the hotel entrance that looked impressive.
Nice big, albeit cool pools & plenty of space & sun loungers. The beach is also on the doorstep
but you have to pay (about 7 euros each) for sun loungers on beach.
The location is at the far end of Playa d'en bossa & quite a walk to the town/shops.
*note: We travelled just after the party season & the big clubs were closed, didn't bother us as we were on honeymoon but this also affected some of the shops, restaurants & smaller bars which were also closed. Playa d'en Bossa outside peak season is VERY QUIET!

The hotel spa is a must & makes for a nice, relaxing half day. Also recommend the massage.
Various boat excursion are available from down in d'en Bossa, we did the Es Vedra & Formentura trip which was nice but a bit too long.

I would highly recommend this hotel, esp. if you can get a good deal & My Wife & I are considering going back around our anniversary but maybe a little earlier to experience the hustle n bustle.

Thanks to all the staff & the hotel for providing us with a brilliant honeymoon

Weather: The Balerics can be unpredictable in the Autumn months & our 1st morning was cloudy & raining. We dreaded a week of bad weather but fortunately by the afternoon it had cleared & the rest of the week was warm & mostly clear (Temps about 23/25 oC)

Very friendly and nice staff. The oval shaped pool area is the best for kids. Beach 2 minutes by walk.
It is not a five star hotel,/ only the price / three and a half.Great location but very noisy.It is in an aircraft pathway. The rooms are very noisy also, paper thin walls.
NO INTERNET!!! What they say is,something very slow from the 80's.
For this price you can get better.

Room Tip: Only the second floor, next to the oval shaped pool.
