In 2020, I had the opportunity to visit TRS Yucatán, TRS Coral, TRS Turquesa, TRS Cap Cana, Grand Palladium Colonial, Costa Mujeres and Palace. 2021 is starting off with a visit to Palladium Vallarta.
We all know that cruising has been paused due to COVID-19. As reported by Cruise Radio, Carnival has paused cruises, at least until May! https://cruiseradio.net/carnival-cancels-april-2021-delays-mardi-gras-inaugural-cruise/
At first, I never thought that all-inclusive resorts could compare to cruises, but I was wrong. With over 150 days sailed on Holland America Line, 75 days on Carnival, and lots of days on NCL and Royal Caribbean, Being a U.S. Navy veteran, I loved being at sea! “And now Christopher Cross here on Lite 96.1, Jacksonville!”
Now that I’ve visited the resorts of the Palladium Hotel Group, I can say I’m hooked! The food, luxury/spacious accommodations, amazing service and beautiful surroundings are perfect for couples and families!
In addition, social distancing is much easier at an all-inclusive resort than it would be on a cruise ship. All of the restaurant menus are accessed on your device via QR code, and the Palladium app. All staff wear personal protective equipment.
As I mentioned, I’ll be visiting Palladium Vallarta February 1-7. Here’s a brief overview:
The Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort is 40 minutes away from the City of Puerto Vallarta, in Riviera Nayarit, a place that in the last few years has become a benchmark in tourist destinations.
The Grand Palladium Vallarta Resort consists of the following facilities:
- 5 Restaurants (4 à la carte) and 7 bars
- Baby Club, Mini Club and Junior Club. Babysitting Service available (with extra charge)
- 2 Sweetwater pools and one saltwater pool
- 1 Mini Zoo
- 1 crocodile cage and feeding shows once a week
- Ecological paths along our botanical gardens
- Great Theater performing shows and games every night
- First-class Spa & Wellness Center
- Business rooms and event halls
- Sunset Boulevard disco for adults
Keep in mind that the resorts provide free COVID antigen tests and free COVID-related medical insurance!
