In this post we will tell you everything you can do, visit and know in the facilities of the Hotel Grand Palladium Riviera Maya, a resort, turned into a destination.
Where is the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya Hotel?
Riviera Maya is the name given to the tourist corridor of the Mexican Caribbean coasts, in the Yucatan Peninsula, in the state of Quintana Roo, starting from the south of Cancun, towards the town of Tulum, for 130 kilometers, including the two most important islands: Isla Mujeres and Cozumel.
The Grand Palladium Riviera Maya Hotel is located in this same tourist corridor, specifically between Playa del Carmen and Tulum, thus obtaining privileged views of the wide beaches and of course, turquoise, crystalline and temperate: Caribbean Sea.
As if creating a different atmosphere, the hotel is completely surrounded by native vegetation which, despite being in the Riviera Maya, seems to be located in the middle of nature, full of palm trees, forming that beach postcard that we are all looking for on our vacations ( Attention!

Can all this be done at the hotel? All that and much more, let’s find out.
Starting the day at the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya Hotel
Nothing better than waking up after a relaxed night in a spacious room, why not, with a view of the turquoise Caribbean Sea and knowing that the only concern at that time is deciding what time to go to breakfast, what to accompany the morning coffee or what kind of activities are to be chosen. A spa day? Or better aquagym in the pools? What if the hotel’s lakes are best traveled on board a catamaran? Yes, lakes inside a hotel and a little boat that runs through them, creating a completely different space from what one has as a “regular” hotel, but the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya is nothing like a regular hotel.
Where are we going?
The hotel grounds are made up of about 122 hectares, with each sector interconnected with each other by roads that cross the areas of forests, mangroves and small bridges that cross the lagoons. Surely we ask ourselves, do you have to walk that many kilometers?

Great idea, huh?

Lakes, lagoons and cenotes to visit (and photograph)
At the beginning of we had said that one of the best things about the Hotel Grand Palladium Riviera Maya, in addition to its category, rooms and first-rate services, is the natural environment in which it is located. The entire hotel complex is surrounded by lush vegetation and made up of jungles, mangroves, small lagoons and even a lake that crosses different sectors of the hotel.

Right in front of the lobby, in addition, there is a cenote, highlighting the importance of the Mayan culture in the region, since they had (and have) a sacred connotation for the civilizations that inhabited the area. The cenotes are natural freshwater holes, fed by underground rivers and following the natural characteristics, this one is small but charming, it is possible to visit it and even swim ( be careful, the water is very cold < / em>). Romantic dinners and wedding proposals are organized in the cenote.
