My husband and I stayed at the end of April in 2007 for our honeymoon. After paying for a lot of the wedding ourselves, we were looking for an affordable yet still amazing all-inclusive resort. We were so incredibly happy with our vacation at sun Palace, we couldn't have asked for more.
This is an adults-only resort which was so nice. While there were other friendly honeymooners and vacationers there, we were also able to be in our own little worlds and just enjoy the sun, food and drinks as much as possible.
We made friends with Arleen who always greeted us with a smile and rememebred our names. The staff was very friendly and very hard-working. Be sure to tip them!! They do not expect it but surely deserve it. Everything is so bright and the views are spectacular. The decorating was minimal--but it was fine bc with all the windows and open spaces, you could see the breathtaking view of the ocean and that was all you needed!! IT almost felt like you were on a cruise when you looked out the windows in the restaraunts bc you were just surrounded by blue sky and beautiful blue water.
The food was incredible. Our favorite was the Italian restaurant but really we enjoyed all of the food.
We actually never booked any day trips or excursions. We said we would look into it if it was ever a cloudy day--but we had perfect weather all 8 days we were there. And we did not complain either bc we were all about soaking up the soon and just lounging and eating and drinking. Of course we know we were lucky with the weather, but it really is a great hotel.
We had a little routine of breakfast, laying out by the pool, lunch, laying out by the beach, walking on the beach, then back to the room to enjoy the jacuzzi and some beers, get ready for dinner and then enjoy one of the bars. I really can't rave enough about this place. We did try dinner at one of the other Palace resorts...I can't remember which one but it was the Japanese steakhouse at one of the hotels that did allow children. Dinner was good, but we were more than happy we opted for the couples only/adults only atmosphere of Sun Palace.
We hope to return here soon for another wonderful trip!
