We never managed to get a reservation at Punta Emilia, but my preference would probably be to eat there most nights if I could, as the beach setting is really nice and I heard the food is good. Most of the resort is set back from the beach so if you like the idea of beachfront dining then that and bbq party are good options. If you like hot sauce with your tacos etc you might bring your own, as the beach bar didn't have any when we were there.

Have fun!

I know recently there was a large group of guests from Spain. Punta Emilia is a favorite for the Spansh guests so during that time reservations were more difficult to get as seating is limited and demand was high. It is not always difficult to get reservations for there. If you want some good seafood suggest trying Fishermans night in the buffet. They serve a wonderful lobster stew and all kinds of seafood.

We were there last yr.--our 1st time at the GP---enjoyed it a lot.

We had sliding glass doors onto our balcony.
The beds were firm but we found them comfortable (and we have a soft-side waterbed at home).
Loved the food with the exception of the oriental food place. All other restaurants were delicious. We really enjoyed the buffet for breakfasts and lunches.
Excellent water pressure in the bathrooms---didn't notice any problems!

Have a GREAT TIME!

Just booked a 2 week holiday for Hubby and I at the Grand Palladium Riviera. Boy oh boy, are we excited!! Its our first time at the Palladium but our 7th year coming the the Mayan.

Now here comes the questions.

Do the rooms in the Riviera side have sliding screen doors? Hubby and I like to sleep with the sound of the tropics and the air conditioner off.

How about the beds? Comfortable or hard?

Food? Which is the best restaurant / buffet to eat at?

Showers? Water pressure good?

Looking forward to all responses.

Thanks

Jeannie of Mike and Jeannie

I thought the $10 spa charge did not go into effect until 11/1/13? Can anyone confirm? We are going 10/19-10/26 and were hoping to avoid the charge.

Last I heard the spa charge was going to be effective Nov.1. This has been under discussion for some time. Most resorts in the area now charge a fee. They goal is to maintain a peaceful environment and the fee is much less than some other resorts from what I have heard.

118 days to go! don't even ask if i've already started throwing stuff into my suitcase [;)]

so we were wondering about upgrading to the royal suites. the travel agent we booked with told us that sunwing has put a stop sell on them. our agent advised if we wanted to upgrade to do it at the resort.

can anyone tell me how much an upgrade would be?

thanks in advance.

You can also check price difference on LG or the palladium hotel group site to see price differences. The Palladium site has been updated and is very nice.

26 sleeps for me!!!

Thank you Kwing

I'm a little confused there are 2 costs per upgrade. Could you tell me where you got this info from?

This is so appreciated!!
