My husband and I stayed here for 8 days in July and this was by far the best vacation we've ever had. The rooms were nicely decorated with beautiful views of the beach, and house keeping always had the room thoroughly cleaned by lunch. The food was fantastic- we eat out at nice restaurants often, and felt the food, even... More

We love palace so much we joined the membership this trip around, the service is really amazing!! Every single employee seems actually delighted to help you. The rooms are beautiful and the jacuzzi is a joy. The common areas and bars were all outstandingly clean and smelled great. The only negative (which was no big deal) was the amount of... More

This is one of the best locations I've stayed in cancun. Prices could run from the $400+ per night but is worth the stay. Not only do they pamper upon arrival but they just don't know how to say NO to their guests. i had a great stay with them i would truly come back as many times as i... More

We stayed at Sun Palace for 14days and had a wonderful time. We went there to celebrate 50th birthday. Lovely cake and sparkling wine in the room. We had a jnr suite which was hugh with wonderful oceanview. Apart from the fantastic beach the best thing about the hotel is the staff, everyone had a smile and a friendly greeting.... More

This is what we do! Both persons you mention, to my delight, haven't been with us too long. Which means that as a team we are succeeding in generating new "Sun Palace" values. It takes anywhere from 6 months to a year, depending on the position and the person for someone to feel comfortable in their job. So the fact... More

We have just returned from a 2 week stay at this amazing hotel. I holidayed at the Sun Palace with my husband (we are celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary) and his sister (celebrating her 60th birthday) and her husband. Upon arrival we were offered to upgrade our rooms to a Presidential Suite. We were shown both rooms and whilst our... More

Presidential suites have the best views. They are very recommendable for two couples who know each other well. And they are so large! Finally we are starting to see the end of the painting of the outside part of the building. I am the happiest of them all! Two years in the making, trying not to bother customers and make... More

We stayed here in July for the last 5 nights of our honeymoon. We were blown away by the service we received during our stay. The staff literally could not have done enough for us. In addition to the amazing service, the food was fabulous with great options to suit various preferences. The beach was just beautiful and the service... More

How different and unique people are and how important it is to be thorough when researching a travel accommodation. Totally per chance, your fabulous review comes after a disastrous one, written by guests who didn't take enough time to think if ours was the place they wanted to be. Making an opinion on where to stay is not easy. Especially... More

We booked two nights in Sun Palace to close our road trip through Mexico. We have been so bored that we could not believe some people were actually staying in Sun Palace for two weeks !! The bedrooms are nice and clean but: - The food is pretty bad (special mention for the Italian restaurant, REALLY BAD) - The drinks... More

Not one of the best reviews we've gotten but thank you anyway, all reviews help us to better understand our different types of guests. Two things caught my eye: You definitely were looking for another type of atmosphere if what you wanted was a booming night-life. Our guests come to rest and relax. The other is your mention of plastic... More

My husband and I stayed at Sun Palace in January--in the middle of the coldest, snowiest winter I've ever experienced in Canada. We were pampered and catered to and I hated to leave. From the phenomenal room, to the delicious foods, to the relaxation of the beach, this trip helped me get through the rest of the winter. I want... More

Most fetching words. I guess you have to be born in a place where there is a Winter with snow and all that. Being from Mexico I can only imagine how it is. But there are, as per many who live in northern latitudes, many good things about Winter. On the whole, I'll stay here, though. So I will wait... More
