Pros: Value for $
Cons: Check In, Distance between everything
Check In - Not all of my guests arrived at the same time so I can only speak of our own experience...extremely frustrating! We got to the resort around 2:00 and had to wait until almost 6:00 to get into our room. The one saving grace during all of it was one of the shuttle drivers that kept track of us during our 4 hour wait and let us know the status. Maybe it's just me - but when a bride and groom check in (especially when they've booked the Honeymoon Suite and brought 40 of their family and f

Pros: Wedding coordinators, food, beautiful location and surroundings
Cons: Small things
Hi all,   I was married at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton on April 23, 2013.  Here is my review of the resort and wedding day:   Arrival: I arrived with all 70 of my wedding guests from Toronto on the Saturday morning.  The check in process is pretty bad, I have to admit.  They make everyone wait until 3pm to get a room.  For me this was not a big deal as I do not have children. However, after an early morning flight and a long day of travelling with little ones, most people wi

Pros: Amazing beaches, buffet was second to none, beautiful grounds, fun night life
Cons: Rude staff, always wanted a tip, offered drugs at every turn, theft from rooms is rampant, management has no control over staff, poor sanitation
My new wife and I went down to this resort on April 27 2013 to get married and were accompanied by approximately 70 guests.  Our first impressions were good, the resort looked to be quite beautiful and the rooms were nice.  The only bad taste left initially was the fact many in our group (50 ppl plus) had to wait until 3 or 4 pm for rooms.  However, that was not a big deal.    After getting settled in our trip started off in the right direction, the weather was beautiful, the buffet food w

Pros: Fast, Easy, Stress Free
I just got home from what was a dream come true.  We arrived at the Grand Palladium on a Monday and then met with the wedding coordinator on Tuesday morning to talk about our Friday wedding.  Everything was pretty much decided 2 weeks or less before we left via email.  Once we got there we went on a tour to all of the wedding locations.  We choose to have the wedding on the beach at 4pm.  Then we went back to Nekeisha's office and she went over the final price and made sure we had everything we

Pros: Great wedding coordinator, beautiful setting, florist and hairdresser excellent
Hi Everyone,   We just had our wedding at the Grand Palladium Jamaica on January 28, 2013, and I wanted to post a quick review! I've tried to put information about prices in as much as possible, because that was something I had a hard time finding ahead of time.   We had an absolutely great experience. During our one hour planning meeting with the coordinator (Loraine, 2 days before the wedding), she had a file on us which contained all of the information I had sent her ahead of time

I’m so happy and excited to be writing this review. From the moment we stepped into the airport everything was perfect and went very smoothly. Our trip was booked through Darlene Dundas of Stonetown Travel, St.Mary’s, Ontario. Best.Decision.Ever! She was incredible from day one and handled pretty much everything for us until closer to the wedding when we started dealing directly with the coordinator. HIGHLY recommend her. We booked out trips with Airtransat and I’m SO impressed with them.

Pros: Wedding Coordinator, Accommodations, Variety of things to keep guests occupied, Scenary
Cons: On-site photographer, service in restaurants,
Please bear with me as I try and re-cap my experience at GPLH.  If you get nothing else from this review, just know that I am VERY happy with my choice of resorts and my wedding day was AWESOME!  Please forgive me for not having pictures yet, I am not a picture taker and will have to wait until I meet with my photographer this week.   To begin: Check in went smoothly for all guests.  We were greeted with Rum Punch and non-alcoholic drinks for guests once we got off the bus.  There was some

Pros: Wedding was beautiful
Cons: Service... not so hot.
We were married at Grand Palladium Jamaica 06/09/2012.  The wedding was perfect and the reception was beautiful.  My wedding coordinator Loraine did a wonderful job.  I couldn’t have asked for anything more.  Everything was timed perfectly and the surroundings were beautiful.  I chose the spa location so  my guests wouldn’t be about to pass out from the heat.  I’m glad  I did because there was a delay due to a wardrobe malfunction – one of my bridesmaids’ zipper broke and she had to be sewn into

Pros: Beautiful resort, good food
Cons: Staff
Number of guests: 35   We got married May 8th at the Grand Palladium.We had a mix of experiences here, at the time we arrived we were advised the resort had been over booked which meant that purchased rooms were not received for our guests as well as my husband and I. This wasn't a problem until we were faced with short tempered front desk staff who were down right rude for no reason. Once we had moved past the experience with them it got better. Our wedding coordinator was sooooooooooo ni

Pros: Beautiful Grounds
Cons: Food, staff, cleanliness
I will start my review by saying two things:   1. I never go out of my way to write negative reviews or really listen to them. I figure that people are sort of whiners and I think, "Hey! You are on vacation. Relax! Things are never going to be perfect, but you have to look for the good and be grateful you are even there."   2. I will never ignore negative reviews again   We were at the Grand Palladium from May 2-9th 2012 for our wedding. Due to travel issues, we were unable to

Pros: Everything went PERFECT!!!
Cons: it rained on my wedding day :(
1st off people don;t listen to the bad reviews this resort is breath taking. I had 30 guest staying at the hotel and everyone loved it. We were all sooo sad to come home. The service from all the staff was great everyone was helpful. I didn't have any issues with communication or getting attitude from staff.  I met with omeshia on Sunday and we went over everything. On my wedding day we were pushed back an hour because of the rain, and i wasn't able to get the gazebo but we had the ceremony a

I just got back from my wedding and everything was perfect! I just typed up a long post, and for whatever reason there was an error so I have to start over. This one will be much shorter. We originally planned to get married on the beach, but after watching several weddings on the beach in the days leading up to ours - I decided that the Gazebo was a better location for us. It is absolutely beautiful. There's a long, curved, paved walkway leading up to the Gazebo. There was shade for our guests.

Hey everyone... just got back from the GPLH!!! We were married on May 10.. ceremony at the gazebo and reception in the blue lagoon! Very impressed with the resort and big shout out to wedding coordinator Nekeisha!! The resort is beautiful and perfect for our group of 48!   My reccommendations:   1. STEEL DRUM BAND! Didnt hear any weddings do this for the ceremony but ours.. and it was soooo worth it! Our guests thought it was included and didnt realize we paid $500 for the hour

Pros: Relaxed, Beautiful, Irie Mon!
Cons: only minor issues
I officially booked my March 26/12 wedding on July 31/11. So I had about 8 months of planning and communicating with my WC. I was nervous of course because you have no idea what to expect and you feel so not in control! But I went into it with a “no problem” attitude and made sure not to have high hopes or expectations. I think that was the best plan. If I had my heart set on anything, or had high expectations, then I might have been slightly disappointed. Overall, I have to say that my wedding

Resort Review - Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton, Jamaica   This resort is gorgeous and we would recommend it to anyone looking to book a wedding in Jamaica! There were no pan-handlers on the beach - i really liked that!   The resort is big but we didn't find the walking to be an issue.  We stayed in one of the honeymoon villas and it was gorgeous. We had a king sized bed, jacuzzi hot tub, an outdoor shower, lots of large mirrors and two sinks (which was AWESOME for getting ready on

Pros: Gazebo, Food, Service, Rooms
Cons: Pools are cold, Beaches
We had some reservations considering some of the reviews. Please note that my background is that I have been to the Dominican, Mexico and Jamaica before and benchmarked my stay vs. the other places and have been to my brothers wedding in Jamaica.   Food: The Al-a-cartes (Bhogali for Non-veg was great, veg was weak for dinner, Creole and the steakhouse were great) and it was a very good buffet when compared to other resorts. ( I dont have feedback on the other restaurants as I didnt eat the

Pros: Beautiful Resort, Great Staff, Amazing Locations, New Resort
Cons: Long Walk from Pool to Beach
Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa is an absolutely amazing place to get married!!! I'm so happy we chose to marry at the GP! No regrets! The resort, the staff were fantastic!   So here we go...   Pre-Wedding When we decided to have a Destination Wedding, I instantly took on the motto "No Worries". I was going to have my dream wedding on a beach and with the laid back mentality of the island ways... I wasn't going to let myself stress. We booked our June 2011 wedding in earl

Hi Everyone,   This is a quick review I'm completing on my lunch. I will try and find time to do a more detailed one, but with a 1 year old son, and just being back at work, my free time is limited.   First of all, Jamaica is absolutely beautiful, I fell in love with this country and will definitely be going back. I am so happy we got married in such an incredible place. It is even better than I imagined.   Grand Palldium is a gorgeous resort with many amenities and I felt that
