I've stayed at the Palace several times. The rooms are good. Water view (request it) is great. Breakfast is incredible but pricey -$35. Wonderful pool - huge, water slide. Kids love it. Good gym and game room for kids. And the view from the balcony on the back side of the restaurant is gorgeous. Apapa ports, container ships sliding past... More

Fabulous views, friendly staff and good food! Every time we have been there we have been welcomed and recognised by well the friendly staff. Sunday Buffet is to die for! The views across the harbour from Upper deck are amazing!

Stayed only one night in this beautiful hotel, but enjoyed it a lot. Staff is very welcoming and friendly, that aspect is really perfect. The lobby is impressive with a warm atmosphere. The rooms are luxureous, excellent bathroom also. I have one comment/suggestion. Make it a bit less cold in rooms and lobby and restaurants. Both my colleagues and myself... More

A solid hotel, some of the rooms and especially the bathrooms are dated but everything else works well, the food is acceptable but not startling and the communal areas all are well maintained. You won't be amazed but unless unrealistic won't be shocked either

So, with a mixture of regret and relief, I bid farewell to the Federal Palace. I've spent maybe 20 or 30 nights here over the past few years, but after my most recent trip, I'm calling time now. On the regret side, the staff are friendly and cheerful. They've been consistently the positive side of the property. The relief is... More

They cut out the water with no warning what so ever. Want me to take a bath with a bucket of water. They call them self a 5star hotel and this is what you get after paying a fortune to stay here. Food takes forever to serve and once it arrives the food is cold. Really a bad experience and... More
