What a truly awesome place!!! We stayed from 2nd August - 16th August 2012 going with first choice in the Colonial side of the resort. Villa 21. We booked this holiday 14 months before going and were not disappointed. The taxi transfer we paid for was worth every penny arriving way before the main coach transfer £38 via holiday taxis (one way only) through Thomson travel agent we booked with. We were on honeymoon so got an upgraded room to a junior suite, which was fabulous and a fruit… Read Full Review

Colonial Palladium: Management are indifferent to complaints. We arrived at the resort and was taken to Kantenah side of resort. The construction noise deafening. It Starts up again religiously at 7 am. Bring ear plugs. I asked to be moved to other side and Was told by the manager that we could move to junior suite on colonial side, I was going to pay additional $40 a day for the upgrade. I Was even given building number etc. and told I would get a letter under the door outlining transit… Read Full Review

My family and I returned to the Palladium in April 2004 for our second trip there. First time we stayed on the Kantenah side which was in a beautiful jungle setting. This time we stayed in a Jr. suite on the Colonial side, closer to the beach and pool. Both sides have much to offer.
Normally we enjoy trying new resorts. Our first trip in June 2003 was so perfect, however, that we decided to return. This is the first time that we brought a friend for our daughter who is now 13. The girls had… Read Full Review

Kantenah, Colonial Palladium - My husband and I went to this resort with a group of 20 people for our wedding which was to take place on the beach....

We arrived at the Palladium & were taken to the appropriate lobby. Check in was a breeze. I emailed (firstname.lastname@example.org) the resort a week prior to our arrival and received my request of "king size bed, shower, Colonial side". We asked for a complementary upgrade and were denied because they were at 100% occupancy. Being at full capacity, this was never noticed by an over abundance of people at any time. I would have though they were only half full. As far as the location of our… Read Full Review

I too saw the spraying of chemicals! WORSE, I WAS INJURED by a falling palm frond while laying beside the pool. I received a HEAD INJURY which caused a BRAIN INJURY now necessitating medical attention here in the USA. The management showed complete disregard and concern for me. I also have a rather large scar on my forehead. Many dead palms remained around the pool even days after I reported the accident. They even had the nerve of admiting liability but told me I had a superficial injury not… Read Full Review

My husband and I and our 8 year old grandaughter stayed at the Kantenah Colonial Palladium on the Colonial side when it was only 2 weeks old In July of 2002. We returned with another couple in November, who also thought it was the best all-inslusive resort they had ever been to. When we returned this past July, it was even better than the first 2 times. Even though it was full, you never felt like it was crowded. We never had to wait on long lines and the food and service was exceptional! I… Read Full Review

Palladium- May 25, 2003-June 1, 2003
We are a family of three: middle age Mom, "older" Dad, and twelve-year-old "Abby".
First impressions were very favorable. Overwhelmingly beautiful. The hotel is sprawling and grounds are lush.l. Check-in was swift. We were given maps, relative resort info, and three coupons for ala cartes. We were then whisked away in a golf cart for transfer to Villa 7 on the Kantenah side.
The first floor room was immaculate. Two double beds, box spring & mattresses… Read Full Review

THE COLONIAL PALLADIUM PLACE IS HORRIBLE STAY AWAY AT ALL COSTS, THIS IS NOTHING MORE THAN A 3 STAR HOTEL DONE UP TO LOOK LIKE A 4.5 OR 5 STAR IN THE BROCHURE. SERVICE IS BAD THE FOOD IS NOTHING SPECIAL AND THE SAME EVERY DAY. THIS PLACE LEAVES A LOT TO BE DISIRED. A WASTE OF MONEY, JUST A TOTAL ZERO IN MY BOOK. IF YOU WANT A GOOD PLACE SPEND ANOTHER HUNDRED BUCKS AND GO TO A REAL 5 STAR RESORT, THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM… Read Full Review

Stayed on the Kantenah side from June 8th-15th ,2003 and was afraid of the rainy season but got 7 days of sunny hot 36 degrees weather!!! This is an amazing place. I've been to a number of all inclusives in the Dom Republic and Mexico and Cuba and I didn't think anything would beat Iberostar Dominicus in La Romana but this place is equiv. or slightly better in some ways. From my travels I've observed and notice the difference between a 4, 4 , and a 5 star resort. Very posh as soon as you enter… Read Full Review
