Goodbye to the Travel Club

Over the years I have posted on many topics, posted information to new members, answered many questions on various topics but recently I have joined the ranks of complainers on the TC and lack of support. I am not sure if anyone in the Palladium management actually reads these postings but on the of...

Re: Travel without using club weeks

Afraid not..............without the TC booking you are just one of the "normal" peeps. With the less than stellar deals from the TC I found options that were actually cheaper and considered booking them this way. In checking with the TC I was advised that you have none of the accesses or perks and i...

Price Match - Kiss of Death

Good day all, Just as an update and an FYI. I was planning on booking Costa Mujeres TRS Coral in Feb. when the "great discount" deal came out of 50%. It almost sounded too good to be true but I talked to the TC and got all the details on it. Imagine my surprise when I do a bit of net checking and fi...

Re: Costa Mujeres reservation

I have been under the same problem for a few weeks now. With the recent promotion of up to 50% discount I have pursued the issue and was advised that they can now get rates for TC members, not a whole sheet as would be desirable but on a case by case basis. You need to make the reservation and they ...

Re: Recommend or not?

I hate to say it but unfortunately I am joining the group to NOT recommend it. Like some of the other posters we joined way back, in fact the second year after the program was introduced and have had some perks and benefits from it but not enough to justify the "chunk of change" that we paid to join...

Re: Renovation Schedule

We were fortunate to get into building 5 of the old Royal side. There doesn't seem to be any renovations on the go at this point so at least that was the same. Building 1 has had some sections renovated so if I had to go elsewhere it would have probably been in one of those. As we are Travel Club we...

Re: Renovation Schedule

A couple more bits of information. Hemmingways is still in the same location, no changes to it other than Giovani who had been there since day one is now gone. The Royal pool is family friendly but not overly crowded yet. Chairs still available at 10 not so much of the towel game. Nightcaps still av...

Re: Renovation Schedule

Here are a few answers for you now, more to come. The Royal restaurant is now The Nest. It is a seafood a la Carte but is open for breakfast and lunch during the day. The Royal pool is now open to all ages. There are still some snacks done during the day. The Royal suites are slowly being renovated ...

Re: Immigration card you can fill out on line

Good day all, A question, my apologies if it has already been answered somewhere and I missed it. There is an "entry fee" for tourists to get into Mexico. Up until now it has always been covered as part of our airline(Air Transat) package and as far as I know it still is. The online tourist card is ...

Re: Renovation Schedule

We will be there starting next Friday(Feb.02) and can give you a complete evaluation. This will be our 5th time there and our first "non Royal" due to the changes but wanted to give it a chance to see.

Post a list of everything you need to know and I will see what I can do to answer it.

Re: Worth the wait to Black Friday?

Why do I even try ? I have a reservation already booked in Feb. for PV that I got at a good discount rate. I was hesitant about doing it early as I knew that Black Friday would always give you a bit extra off. I corresponded with the TC about potential future discounts and whether they would apply o...

Re: Renovation updates?

This is a response I got from the assistant GM of the hotel with regards to the adult only section.

 There will be no adults-only section after renovations. In fact, from December 1st, the whole complex (Palladium and Royal) will be family friendly.

Re: Adult Only Section

Thanks for the info....sigh. I guess no adult only section means also no adult only restaurant or bar also. Oh well this will now require some serious extra pondering. We like PV so will probably do it anyways. It is good that you got an answer back from the, I have tried various contacts and emails...
