Resort Profile

An affordable all-inclusive resort on Mexico’s exclusive Punta Mita peninsula, the Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort & Spa caters well to families with a small on-site zoo and other kid-friendly amenities such as a kids pool with small waterslides. There aren’t any off-site shops or restaurants or motorized water sports options within walking distance and the beach is relatively unimpressive (and somewhat small) for the size of the property; but the resort offers a nice swim-up bar, an infinity pool overlooking the beach, very good on-site restaurant variety, a solid fitness center, a theater for live entertainment, well-manicured tropical grounds, and nice rooms for the price with ample space. Rooms come with flat-screen TVs, hydromassage baths, pillow menus (at an extra charge in some categories), aromatherapy menus and body oils (at an extra charge in some categories), and balconies or terraces (some have jacuzzis). There are three different kids club programs (for ages 1-3, 4-12, and 13-19), which is highly unique. Babysitting is also available. On-site water sports include sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, and kayaking.

Free COVID-19 antigen tests are offered on-site to guests traveling back to countries that require it for re-entry, including the United States. In order to be eligible for the complimentary test, however, guests must be enrolled in the Palladium Rewards loyalty program before check-out (there is no cost for joining). Test results will be received the same day in digital format as required by the CDC. Guests should contact the Front Desk upon arrival to schedule. PCR tests are also available, at an additional fee. In the event of a positive test, the affected guest can quarantine at the hotel for up to 10 days at no additional cost, with up to three companions.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
