We had an excellent vacation at the Palace. The service and friendly staff was above and beyond what we had expected. Staying in the adults only section provided the laid back relaxation without the loud music and noise. Would recommend this section to those without kids and don't want to bothered by others. The only down side to the adults section was that the sun was blocked by the building for the afternoon. If you want to keep sunning in the afternoon you would need to go to another pool or the beach.
The bar service was fantastic, no matter where you were on the premise you always had a waiter asking if they could offer you a drink. Never a wait at a bar on site. The lobby bar provided a nice spot to sit and relax with either a drink or coffee. All restaurants provide top notch food and the service was great.
Having the hot tube on the balcony in the adult section was a great place to send some time before getting ready for dinner. The room was always stocked with liquor and drinks to help spend that time in the hot tube.
Travel to the shopping was no problem with the local bus service. The bus stop across the street provide access to the local shopping spots whether the flea market or the higher end shopping on the water. Each about 10 and 15 minutes away. Much cheaper than a taxi and very convenient.
Although you needed to make reservations one day in advance for the onsite restaurants there was never a problem getting in to one while we were there. Being the slower season may have helped with that.
We USA Transfers in Cancun to get from the airport to the hotel. Great price and excellence service. They meet you just outside the airport doors and have the car there in a few minutes. On the return ride the car arrived at the hotel at the time indicated on the reservation. Highly recommended.
