  • Grand Palladium??

    Anyone been there? I read there were some problems but things seem to be leveling out now...and great prices!! Anyone know how long it would take to get to Negril? And do route taxis go from GP to NEgril and back? We HAVE to stay at an AI due to physical limitations of parents. TIA

    Maybe a half hour drive. Forty minutes tops.

      Take a good look at the place if your parents have trouble moving around..it looks HUGE.

                Seveen is probably referring to the fact that the place is owned by some Spanish corporation, which means that most of the profits will go back to Spain rather than staying in Jamaica....

                  during my july trip i had a conversation with an inn owner - she told me that if they took you from the airport to the hotel - blindfolded - when you took the blindfold off inside the hotel you would think you were in Spain - decorations, wine, language, service staff

                  there was a trip report about the iberostar hotel - check ja trip reports - i asked if that hotel felt like being in Spain - and the trip reporter confirmed that feeling

                  so let us know . . . .

                      After spending nuff time on a travel advice forum, I've come to the conclusion that many people really don't care to experience the culture of the country they are visiting....they want opulence, luxury and separation from any poverty that may be apparent in the country.....

                      Guess that pretty muc sums up what all the Spanish resorts, in Jamaica, are all about.

                      Definately NOT my cup of tea, but each to his own.
                      Jamaica...NOTHING is as it seems.

                          now playing devils ad...Do you think they would come at all if not for the massive luxuries and guarded gates?

                          or maybe they like to play dress up for eac other and see the latest fashins from other parts of the world?

                          and while were going that far the men that like these places also like to sit around large pools and take in the 100's of bikinis. Many people many reasons.

                            SOO Welcome to the board. I like your name.

                            Yes on the rt taxis. You'll have to walk away from the prperty though when leaving and tell the stationed drivers your looking for a route taxi.
