Great hotel. The hotel was beautiful, the landscaping was amazing, the food was very average, and the drinks were weak. The beach was great. We really enjoyed our stay. We stayed in building 21 and found it close to the pool and beach area. Lots of walking on bricked paths - very cool. The shows were ok. My husband got...

The Grand Palladium is a vast complex with 5 different hotels in one resort (Kantaneh, Colonial, White Sands, Riviera and Royal).

The use of the time share was a gift from my former boss while...
