I visited the Beach Palace on July 26-July 30, 2004. I was a bit leary after reading some of the reviews, but I was glad I went to see for myself. I was there with my husband and 2 cihldren ages 6 and 8.
The hotel was very nice and clean and the service was definitely above average. The children always had something to do whether it was at the kids club which was great. My children really loved the X-Box and all of the other fun things to do. There are 2 pool tables and 2 ping pong tables which we all enjoyed. Outside, the pool is rather small, but it worked out well since I had small children and the water never went above their heads so I did not have to stay in the pool with them at all times. I could catch some rays poolside. The swim up bar was nice and my son loved that he could just order a "Miami Vice" poolside and not have to get out. There were poolside barbeques and plenty of snack food. The most impressive part of the hotel has to be the beach. The sand was so smooth and white like sugar. The water was crystal clear and there was always plenty of room for sun worshippers such as myself. The hotel is across the street from the mall and Planet Hollywood.
What I thought was going to be a downside turned out in our favor. We were prepared for the "timeshare hounds" being pushy, but we went along with the game and got a total of $250.00 for going to 2- 90 minute tours/presentations. This was in good old U.S. cash. So we used that for Souvenir shopping. Plus they fed us each time. It wasn't so bad, plus we got to see 2 other properties.
If you're planning on going, make sure you get an oceanview room. We were in room 1030, and it was a decent room with hard beds, which we were rarely in so it really wasn't an issue for us.
The hotel in all was good but the service was great.
