Great resort in Brazil
Reviewed 6 days ago

Beautiful all inclusive hotel by the beach in northern Brazil. Kids can enjoy their own pool with water slides or join in the main pool where there are many sectors available for them. The mini Club can only be used if the kids join in with the group, unlike other hotels I’ve been. The food is very good, but you may experience delays in the service of beverages. Given the high temperatures in the region, this service should be improved. Access to the beach is somewhat afar the main buildings but you will enjoy the walk, or there is also a shuttle service departing every 10 minutes or so. The sea water is exquisite, warm and not so harsh, so both adults and children can enjoy it. There is also a restaurant and bar by the beach so you can stay throughout the day without having to return to the main restaurants. I also went to the spa, and it was perfect. I definitely recommend this hotel. Enjoy it as much as I have!

Amazing Family Hotel
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

It has everything: great beach, amazing pools for kids and for adults, all sorts of activities and sports, contact with nature, good food. My kids enjoyed the beauty of the warm water at the beach, a wide area of sand (its great to have a nice big area for yourself and your familly!), the pools with really cool slides.
On the way from the hotel to the beach ( if you choose to do it on walking mode... you can also do it in bus that comes back and forth constantly) you have a long bridge where we saw iguanas, monkeys, birds... the kids loved it!
On the beach we took surf classes which were amazing! Me, my husband and my father are beginners and I couldnt think of a better place to learn this wonderful sport. A special mention to 2 of the teachers: Laizon & Marcus. They love what they do and they do it with so much patience! They made us feel like we knew what we were doing ;)
For lunch we choose to take away food from the beach restaurant to the beach (they give you special paper plates to bring to the beach) and we had a feast eating by the water.
The buffet food is great with lots of options every day. I should highlight the amazing dulce de leche crepes for dessert!
Rooms are big and comfortable... you spend so little time in your room ... Everything extremely clean and well maintained.
Its the second year in a row that we go and we would love to go again and again!

Fantastic place, needs to step up in service levels
Reviewed 1 month ago

This was my second time at Grand Palladium Imbassai. I had come with my family last year (Feb 2018) and decided to return this year. I didn't write a review at the time, but it would have been a 5 star review.
The resort has some very positives in its favor: Fantastic beach (yes, and I enjoy that 500 meter walk to the beach a lot!), great infrastructure, large rooms and nice staff.

But relative to last year I noticed that the service level has downgraded a few notches... most notably: They need more staff at the buffets and thematic restaurants. It was close to impossible to get a glass of water of cup of wine even when it seemed the hotel was not fully occupied. And it's not that the staff isn't helpful, you see them running around all the time, but it's just that there's too few of them.
Another aspect that seems somewhat downgraded is the care and quality of the rooms. Mine for instance had some ugly moisture stains over the shower.
Finally, and also, relative to m stay in 2018, the quality of the meals and food, particularly at the buffet felt a notch below this year in terms of quality (taste, temperature, etc)

Again, my review is mostly positive but can't help to compare against my stay in 2018. I can't say if I'll be back or not. I still love the place and the beach so much, hopefully they step up their game in terms of service levels

Nice facilities and infrastructure, good meals except at “thematic restaurants” (terrible)
Reviewed 1 month ago

Comfortable and clean rooms, equipped with air conditioning system and bathroom with large bathtub. Wide swimming pools. Beverages are okay as well as meals in general. Thematic restaurants intend to be trendy but are definetly poor. Service in general is very good.

Excellent hotel & services
Reviewed 2 months ago

Great hotel with all services included, very good staff looking always after clients and creating a amazing ambience. It was my second visit after the one I did in 2014 and activities and servicies have improved significantly, restaurants too. Adults and children can easily enjoy. The beach is great and less crowded than in other resorts.
