Grand Palladium White Sand is one of five hotels that make up the Grand Palladium Riviera Maya resort complex. It’s a great place for family vacations — but also romantic getaways. Here’s why you should visit:
Play at Palladium with Raggs
You can’t bring the pets along to Grand Palladium White Sand Resort & Spa, Riviera Maya, but you can make some furry friends while you’re there — and the kids will love it! Play at Palladium with Raggs and his friends, characters from the Emmy Award winning TV series that will have your kids smiling from ear to ear.
Raggs, Trilby, Pido, B. Max, and Razzles comprise the Raggs crew who play rockin’ music and hang out in their cool clubhouse. The “Play at Palladium with Raggs” program is available at the Grand Palladium Resorts in Mexico, Punta Cana, Jamaica, and Salvador, Brazil. The program includes The Raggs Pirate Show, Pido Disco Surf Party, Raggs Breakfast, and other activities. Mini guests of Grand Palladium can play with Raggs in their clubhouse and nap on the cuddly rag blankets in the Mini Clubs (also available for purchase in the shops).
Renovations at Grand Palladium White Sand Resort & Spa
Family vacations at Grand Palladium White Sand Resort and Spa just got even better. Besides the fun Raggs program for children, the resort underwent renovations in August 2016 to improve its guestrooms with new furniture and upgraded decor, a refurbished lobby and lobby bar, and upgrades to some of the dining spaces including Mare Nostrum Mediterranean a la carte restaurant and Sumptuori Japanese a la carte restaurant.
