Just got back from a week at the Playacar Palace. We are regulars at the Palace resorts, so we had a pretty good idea of what to expect.
Location - proximity to the town of PDC is a definite plus, easy walk to 5th avenue and all the shops, bars, etc. Also easy walk to the main beach, you have to walk around the ferry but its 500 yards max. Most rooms have a great ocean view. The beach is small, but the pool is nice- my only complaint is concerning the loud 'activities' - the staff does a great job providing entertainment, but it you just want to relax and listen to the surf you don't have that option.
Food- Momonahanna's was good, nice sushi appetizer selection. Mexican buffet was fine, plenty of choices, my steak was a little tough. The steak at the Italian restaurant was great, so was the shrimp.
Entertainment was pretty typical of the Palace resorts- some good, some great. Live band at the Luna lounge was pretty good.
Room- great view, wireless internet worked fine, room service was great (many midnight palace club's!).
Overall a very positive experience.
