Argh, this isn't working. My whole message just got deleted, and the picture is too big to upload! Here's what I wrote.

 

SO, for those of you considering of the Grand Palladium, (like I am!), there is only one option for a private reception, it is in an outdoor restaurant overlooking the pool.

 

If you want the pic, PM me! It looks nice.

Hi Girls,

I am still deciding where I am going to get married in Mexico but FYI

I was recently in Mexico (FEB 11-16, 2006)and stayed at the Grand Palladium. A very nice resort with some flaws here and there but still a good resort. Not sure if anyone is interested in getting married at the gazebo but here is my take on it:

My FI and I walked by it everyday during our vacation and it smelled like pee. Maybe because it is right next to a swampy area but it was gross. The gazebo itself was pretty (i saw a wedding set up there one day) the beach background was okay as that end of the beach was rocky and it looked rocky and the swampy area has dead-maybe not dead but very bare branches and bushes. Also that area of the beach is very crowded. I have some pics that I could email if you are interested in seeing the resort and etc. Hope this review does not bumm anyone! Maybe the smell is gone now:))))

I don't recommend this place! There are so many other beautiful places in the Mayan and I stronly suggest not visisting here.

 

If you like taking a train to your room, to the pool, to eat - then this is your place.

 

The service was horrible!! I really think the staff don't like working there; b/c I have never seen such negativity! I come to mexico each year and visited Mayan many times and this place was by far the worst.

 

This is only my opinion but I would spend my money elsewhere!

 

I hope the best for your search for a great place.

hi...

 

we just got back from our wedding in RM... We didn't get married at Grand Palladium, we had our wedding at the Al Cielo Hotel & Restaurant, about a 5 minute drive from GP... But we did have a welcome party at the palladium the nite before the wedding... we were able to set it up with the Groups Coordinator(Daffney)... she set up the private party with apps and open bar at the '24 hour shack'... behind the big pool right on the beach... and we were also able to negotiate day passes for 16 guests of ours that were staying at other resorts... if you need more info on it let me know...

 

as for the weddings there, i was told they were doing 2-3 weddings a day... i know every nite that we were there (cool.gif, we did see a wedding reception at the Grand Azul... i originally considered having my wedding at GP... but was told by the palladium's WC that they were fully booked for weddings for the week i got married... as for actual wedding ceremonies, we only saw 2... one at the gazebo and one on the beach...

 

as for the resort... we had about 45 people staying there with us at the 'kantenah'... i was able to get all my guests booked in rooms that were only a building or two away from ours... the resort is really big... if guests were booked in rooms at the 'white sands' or the 'riviera'... i doubt we would've ever saw them... after asking all our guests how their stays were, i did hear the same complaints i've read in other reviews... "long walk" "funny smell"... but it never seemed to bother our guests... they were always at the pool or the beach or the bars and never in their rooms anyway...

 

If you can... i suggest upgrading to the mayan suites... the outdoor shower was nice... buildings right on the beach... our building was at the northern tip of the property... yes, it is a walk to the restaurants and buffets, but we never really went back to the room after dinner anyway... the beach there was pretty quiet... no rocks... no sea grass... unlike the beach towards the big pool and the gazebo... it was really easy to get a group of 10 or more lounge chairs next to each other so that our guests could hang out at the beach together...... plus it had its own bar, which was never crowded...

 

This resort is definitely not a place for the young single partier... and we had a few... the majority of our guests were mid 20s to early 30s... they would just take taxis to PDC to get their fill of bar/club hopping... they never complained...

 

would i go backhuh.gif yes... definitely... i just wish they had room service... on the van ride back to the airport... there was couple on the ride that stayed at Dreams Tulum, and they kept on about ordering room service everyday... that would've been nice... hahhaa...

 

anyway... i hope this helps...

 

julie...

    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
