Family Selection guests arrive and check in at the exclusive Family Selection Lounge with private check in. Each Family Boss also receives a special welcome kit with items customized to the age and gender of the child. For families with more than one child, they try to mix up the items so siblings don't necessarily receive the same items. Our welcome kit included a Family Selection back pack, rash guard, Family Boss hat, water bottle, portable power bank and fidget spinner. In addition, kids also receive special bathrobes and slippers to use.
Nightly turn down service with special treats change daily, and kids are treated to a special hydromassage bath once per stay.
Imagine our delight when we returned to our room
after dinner to enjoy this!
While much attention is paid to the Family Bosses, just as much attention is paid to the parents to ensure they have a most stress free and relaxing vacation with their kids. For this reason, there is an exclusive restaurant, The Nest, only available for Family Selection guests where you can choose from all you can eat buffet options and a la carte dining options for breakfast, lunch and dinner (lobster included). Because we know kids can get hungry at all times during the day, there is 24 hour room service to ensure you will always have dining options available.
You have access to concierge service with a Family Host who is available from 7:00am to 11:00pm for your needs to ensure you receive priority reservation in all restaurants.
Free laundry service is also available (2 pieces per person) during your stay.
To encourage Family Boss parents to really indulge, Family Selection guest/adults receive unlimited access to the hydrotherapy pools, hot tubs and steam room at Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness (normally a $30 USD per person per day cost), as well as 20% discount off of spa and beauty treatments.
The "Zentropia Massages" is their signature treatment where you are treated to six different deep tissue massage techniques in an 80 minute session leaving you completely blissful and zen. It was an AMAZING spa experience!
There are four different treatment rooms, each representing the four elements - fire, water, earth and sun. The music, oils used and decor differs between each room to provide the experience that suits the element of the room.
Celiac - dark green
Type 2 Diabetes - light green
Nut allergy - brown
Fruit and vegetable allergy - red
Seafood allergy - purple
Fish allergy - blue
Egg allergy - orange
Dairy and lactose allergy - white

The rest of the resort is lush and green, like a tropical rainforest and an intimate jungle with exotic animals.
Thanks to April, Brianna and Mario for putting together such a great itinerary, and for executing a most enjoyable stay at the Family Selection at Grand Palladium Vallarta Hotel & Spa!
