My husband and I visited the Grand Palladium Resort & Spa for a week in early Jan, 2010. The weather was perfect, mid 80s, mostly sunny with an occasional shower in the PM. The resort was beautiful, clean and well-maintained. The main pool is HUGE, its a great place to relax and has a nice swim up bar. There are a few other smaller pools on the resort too that also all have bars. The resort had mini golf, basketball & tennis courts, and a turf soccer field which we took advantage of. The spa looks really nice and has a great swim-through pool.We didn't know the difference between the Resort & Spa and Lady Hamilton. Turns out Lady Hamilton is on the side of the resort closer to some of the beaches - if you would like convenience to the beaches I would stay on the Lady Hamilton side if they are the same price.I was very happy there were many different restaurants to eat at within the resort - Asian, Indian, Creole, Steak, just to name a few. They also had about 3 buffets. My husband wasn't thrilled with the food, I thought it was fine.Our only "complaint" was the service was not spectacular, it was good, but probably not as good as if you had gone to a more expensive resort, but you get what you pay for and it wasn't bad by any means.The resort is about 2 hours away from Dun's River Falls, and 40 minutes away from Negril. It is over an hour ride to the airport. And there is not much right outside of the resort.Overall we had a great trip & would definitely recommend the resort!

The Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton is a beautiful resort, and my wife and I had a great time. The facility is two resorts in one (the other being the Grand Palladium) which share ammenities, including the largest pool in Jamaica. We stayed in a seaside bungalow, which was definately worth the modest upgrade cost. For couples I highly recommend this upgrade, which will provide beachfront accomodations with a private patio, a huge jetted tub, and an outdoor shower, all in an "adult only" section of the resort. We did a wedding vow renewal while there, and if you are considering this or a wedding ask specifically for Reverend Vincent (marriage officer) and Kimberly (wedding coordinator) as they were excellent. Regardless of what you may hear tipping is expected, and make sure you tip yor front desk attendant well upon check-in to get a good room assigned. The resort is about 45 minutes from the airport, in a remote location, so do not expect to be able to enjoy anything off the resort without a fair bit of travel. There are tour companies that offer daily excursions to Negril, Ochio Rios, and other locations, just book these a day or two ahead. We used Jamaica Tours Limited and had no problems. This is an all inclusive resort including meals and beverages, and our only additional cost for our entire stay was a bottle of wine we ordered for one dinner, since we wanted something other than the hose wine.
