We vacationed at Sun Palace from April 12th through the 19th. This was our 12th visit there and we plan to return many, many more times. We are convinced that there is not another resort that will treat you, comply to your every need, and absolutely spoil you rotten as the Sun Palace does. The food is out of this... More

My wife and I just got back from one week at Sun Palace. OUTSTANDING. This was our third time there. We loved it again. The main reason-the staff. I cannot remember all, but some of the most noteworthy were: Augustin who kept the pool activities and volleyball going. Santos, Mario and Karina who worked tirelessly to bring us our drinks... More

We arrived at the Sun on April 8th for a 7 day stay to be followed with a 3 day stay at the Le Blanc (a separate review). Our transportation from the airport, which was included, was very quick and we checked in around 7 pm. Check in was fast and we were assigned room 331. Our room was huge... More

Well, this is a great place to relax and get some sun in December. This was our 3rd time at this hotel, so we absolutely love it! You get excellent service, the liquor cabinet gets restocked every day, there are 3 restaurants to choose from, plus nightly shows. However, like others have mentioned, there are signs of wear and tear... More

My wife and I just finished a wonderful week at Sun Palace. We are Palace Resorts members and I have to say that Sun Palace is my favorite Palace resort. We decided to travel light and had no checked luggage. Wow what a difference! We cleared customs and were out of the airport in, at most, ten minutes. Our concierge,... More

My husband and I stayed at the Sun Palace April 14 through April 20 for our honeymoon. Our transport from the airport with Olympus was wonderful. The driver was welcoming and was more than happy to answer questions on our drive. Upon arrival we were greeted by two men at the front door--I don't remember their names-- but they were... More

More importantly than the rating are the two issues which inconvenienced you. We want perfect honeymoons for perfect couples and it is a shame that two people with attitudes marred your totally enjoying this event. Other than these, your comments are very sweet and caring and we thank you for them. We will make sure to compensate those employees whom... More

Another trip to Sun came to an end last week. . . One of my favorite hotels is showing some serious signs of dilapidation, unfortunately. Exterior is in desperate need of a paint job, pool tiles loose and pools need to be re plastered, just to name a few things. On a positive note, service was fantastic as always. From... More

I do thank you for your comments but, I am so tired of getting the rap for these issues I do have to explain, once again: Paint: Blame Sherwin Williams, who has miserably failed in its now second attempt to do a decent job on the façade paint. The paint is not 6 months old and it has started peeling.... More

We visited this hotel on a day trip from Moon Palace for a 1/2 day. The bartender at the pool was very nice and helpful. The view from the roof was amazing! This was not a 5 star hotel. I would say it was more of a 3.5 star resort.

Hello and thank you for your comments. I am a bit curious about the view from the roof. Are you sure you are talking about Sun Palace? If you were visiting then you didn't have a room here. And we have nothing but rooms in our uppermost floors. How did you get to see a view? pwinkler@palaceresorts.com is my e... More

My family and I are eagerly awaiting our 6th straight trip to the Sun Palace in July. The atmosphere, staff, food, service, and overall experience you receive at the Sun Place is hands-down the best experience we have encountered.
