Excellent service from the staff around the pool deck and they serve delicious cocktails! Nothing was too much trouble for the staff which made the experience even more enjoyable.

One of providing a 5star service only if it goes with a handout of sorts. Everything else becomes 3star. For having to pay the enormous charge of a one night stay at the Palace, one... More

Ordered drinks and a light lunch. Stunning Japan Sandwich with Tuna which we can highly recommend. Sadly when we ordered a cocktail containing berries we were told that they are not available. The bar lady offered a Mochito which I ordered but it was made with lemons and not limes as indicated in the menu. Still tasted good!

The palace pool deck is a place for the family to relax and have cocktails of your dreams. If it is not on the menu the Bar tender will create it ie Pina Colada.

Its a great place for the whole family. You can relax there the whole day with excellent service from the staff. You are also able to get massages at the pool area and just enjoy the ambience and company that you are with.
