Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa All Inclusive

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel is so big and there are alots of fun things to do there for people all ages. Hotel has there own 8 private beaches, sunset cove is one of the hotel's beach you must spend a day if you stay there.

I loved the beaches, the buffet food is great, the other restaurants were ok, drinks are great. Alot of walking but worth it

The room was clean daily. The staff was helpful and they always asked is everything ok? The restaurants that we went to the food was good and the drinks kept coming. Overall we had a wonderful time.

This was actually our third time in the last 2 years staying at here. The first time was as the Palladium and the other two times were at the honeymoon suite at Lady Hamilton. If youd asked me prior to this visit Id told you it was as close to heaven as you can get - no more. We arrive after 4pm and are told the room isnt ready, not the end of the world. I'd called 2 months ago, even had an orbitz rep contact them to request an upper level floor as the "ocean view" from the bottom is non-existent due to bushes. We were told "all honeymoon suites are top floor". Guess who was given a room on the bottom? Yup. And of course there were no rooms to xfer to for several days. So I tried to make the best of it. They gave us a "vip access bracelet" this time but nobody explained its purpose or benefits. Then heres when things get real good. The AC in the room didnt work properly, maintenance came out and was super polite, explained in order to fix they would have to rip out the drywall.. So again, we try to make thr best of it. Then NO HOT WATER in the entire complex on day 1.. Again on day 3 (our anniversary) so the wife was unable to get ready properly. To apologize for the horrid inconvenience guest relations offered us free champagne service, to be delivered at 4pm the following day. It never came. After 5 calls to different managers it showed up around 7pm. To top it off, room service is a total crap shoot. You'll have to call about 25 times (no exaggeration) then wait 2 hours

We had our flight cancelled from a storm they were very accommodating to help us with keeping our same room and helping with trans. Very nice staff wifi not so good but we got thru it.

Not enough help or guidance. A tour of facilities would be helpful. They said no reservations were needed for restaurants but some were required, and we had to eat at buffet instead. Food choices were good but waitstaff could have been more attentive. They gave you one drink then disappeared,

We stayed in the honeymoon suite which was very nice and spacious. Good food, I loved the beaches even though they are small there was plenty of room. Great snorkeling right from shore. Beautiful facility and they offer shuttle service via golf carts 24 hours which was nice as its a huge place. We liked the fact that unlike Negril you can leave your stuff on the beach and not have a lot of peddlers. In fact in one week we didn't see one person. The night life is very loud as we like to go to bed early so recommend noting that you would like a room facing away oh and the 2 floor as the view is much better. Great people and good drinks. Lots of smoking of ganja which most people were respectable and did that in private. Lots of kids activities and nice spa. Overall i would say 4 plus out of 5.

Very relaxing time. There is enough to do that you never have to leave the resort. Great place for families or couples looking to relax at the beach. Recommend a la carte restaurants over buffet. Friendly staff and clean. Upgraded to pool view, definitely worth it, especially if you want to listen to the live music from the bar at night.

I read all the reviews and decided that you can't please everyone and most reviews were positive so we gave it a try. First the rooms; we were on the lady Hamilton side and the rooms were redone and the design was great but not as nice as the pictures showed. Seldom had hot water in the shower, lack of towels, NO wifi and steps,steps,steps! Next the property: very attractive with lush surroundings. The pools were clean as was the beach. The main area was well decorated with great atmosphere. The food is next: the buffets were very low quality with most food bland and not warm. The meats were dried out and the service was less than adequate. The theatre shows were just ok and a little amateurish. The drinks were fine for the Jamaican flair and thankfully included in your cost. And now the staff: I have never been to a resort where staff members were more concerned about talking amongst themselves and not making the guests feel welcome. Granted that didn't hold true to everyone but in general it was obvious the staff didn't like their jobs and could care less about the guests. Twice we called for transportation to various locations and requested a bellhop when it was time to leave and no one showed up causing us to almost miss our connection back to the airport. There were a couple staff members I would like to give praise to and that was Dale and the bartender at the pool bar, Martin. Thank you guys! Finally if you can't walk EVERYWHERE do NOT select this resort.

We've been to this resort 4 times in the last 6 years and this time decided to have our wedding there. We truly enjoy our time at Grand Palladium and had a beautiful wedding. Our wedding coordinator Meloney made sure our day was perfect. I would highly recommend this resort!

Beautiful resort, very friendly staff! Coming back next year with the kids after we saw the kids pool area

I enjoyed my stay ..my room was amazing. The food could be better but over all good. The workers were very nice and friendly. The grounds were well kept. The beach was not the best but good enough. I would return.

Wonderful experience and amazing staff. (Martin, Patrice, Rorrie -bartenders at the blue lagoon pool) one thing that I did not like was that there was no music playing around the pool area. I have never seen something like that before. It's honestly a bummer.

Great staff at the kids club. The kids played dress up with costumes. Friendly entertainment staff. Gorgeous facilities... The place is huge but love the way the rooms are all close to the beach, they also have shuttles every 5-10 mins. I really hated the way their desserts tasted. The wifi even though it was everywhere had REALLY weak signal

Our experience was nice until the sales and marketing event...very stressful!!

Everything was amazing while staying here. But there are just 2 things that could have been better. First thing is that I wish the check-in people could let you know that you ARE allowed to make reservations instead of saying it's first come-first serve. The last this is the shows that they had was bad and painful to watch. Other than that the food was great, room was great and the staff were amazing.

This hotel is one of the first all inclusive resorts in Montego Bay. I was not impressed, would recommend, staying at a more newer resort. Staff, was not well informed about events, tours, excursions, their were misleading on prices for events. I would not revisit

The hotel accommodations and amenities were perfect for the occasion. We were able to complete just about everything we could on property. The food and drinks were just right. Garth James the manager of the resort took great care of us on our stay. The only downside was the Wi-Fi connectivity was very slow, but all in all the stay at the hotel was perfect and we would do it all over again. This would also be a perfect spot of an all girls adventure or just a business getaway trip for a conference. The Love Family

Nice family vacations. Nice place, friendly stuff, nice room. Lovely pool for kids.

The first thing we said is that we should have went here for our Honeymoon!! The resort was just awesome!! We will definitely be back!!
