Grand Palladium Jamaica: A Great Experience Awaits

By Courtney Nicholas

The drive from Kingston took about 2 hours & 40 minutes, check in was no longer than 5 minutes. I was shuttled to the room, which was located on the Lady Hamilton Block, the bellboy was very helpful & knowledgeable, giving me a quick overview on the hotel & answering my questions adequately.

The room I was given was on the ground floor, it had a King Size Bed, Balcony, a Mini Bar which was fully stocked, a couch, safe, & I must say the bed was extremely comfortable.
The food options were better than I expected, I went to the main buffet, for breakfast & lunch, which at all times the wait staff was always checking if I needed anything.
The beach was a bit disappointing for me, as I mostly spent my time during the day at the main pool, which was massive but not crowded, it had a great swim up bar & the Johnnie Walker was always flowing. There was also a water slide which I saw the kids enjoying.

The dining options were very good, I went to Poseidon (Mediterranean), Bhogali (Indian), Arte E Cuccina (Italian) Bubbas (Steak House), Lotus House (Asian), they all were excellent.

The property is also well laid out, with easy directions as well as the covered area from the lobby to your room, in the event of rain and room service is also available.
The resort is very family friendly & also has access for the disabled. For the parents, the play area is really good & the nanny is very experienced.

“We are incredibly grateful to have been chosen by the readers of Travel + Leisure for this prestigious award,” said Shannon Kircher, Director of Marketing & Communications at Frangipani Beach Resort.  “Our guests are like family to us, and our main focus is on creating unique memories and experiences for each of them.

Offering a peaceful haven overlooking Meads Bay in Anguilla and its pristine white sands, Frangipani Beach Resort features 19 rooms and suites and an impressive 5,000 square foot beachfront villa,designed to host special beach escapes in a private sanctuary for families and groups. The resort provides an intimate setting with the luxury and amenities visitors have come to equate with the island.

“This award is especially meaningful knowing how hard we worked to get back up and running following Hurricane Irma. Our guests supported us so much through that challenging time and it really encouraged us to recover as quickly as we could,” continued Kircher.  Frangipani strives to continually augment the guest experience with annual property enhancements and will debut a new rooftop lounge space and Balinese spa which will open in November 2018.  The resort has continued to place a focus on sustainability and the use of renewable energy, and will be incorporating solar power into their design as part of their upcoming enhancements.
