Multiple pools and outdoor sports facilities
Resort is a bit removed from nearest major city
The Grand Palladium Jamaica is, well, grand: Its white-columned, cupola-topped structures wrap around a stretch of sand in Lucea, Jamaica. Overall, guests praise the Grand Palladium Jamaica's extensive grounds, although some bemoan the unfriendly staff and small, crowded beach. Between the Grand Palladium Jamaica and its sister property, the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa, travelers have access to 10 restaurants, eight bars, tennis courts, an archery area, a water park and five pools, including a traditional pool and a lazy river in the spa. The property's all-inclusive rates cover the use of most of these facilities, plus all meals and drinks. Inside the resort's 537 suites, visitors will find king-sized or double beds, sitting areas, separate showers and hydromassage bathtubs, satellite TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi access. For those eager to explore the area, Montego Bay's attractions and amenities sit about 20 miles northeast.

Critic Reviews


The massive size won't be for everyone, and other drawbacks include the remote location and the rocky man-made beach. The adjacent Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa is a four-pearl alternative that shares many of the same amenities, but is quieter and more exclusively adult centric.
