This was my second stay at The Palace. I stayed just about 10 years ago and decided to give it another try. I stayed for two nights for New Years, rates were pretty good. Upon arrival we were given a change to look at the rooms prior to checking in. Went to 3 oceanfront "sunsuites" and all 3 were set up different so if they offer to allow you to look at them prior to checking in then you should take staff up on this. We settled for a room on the 7th floor.
Room size was pretty good for the suite. It did have a full kitchen with supplies. The balcony is rather small. The two chairs and table barely fit so when you put two people out there it can be tight. It's also hard to see down the sides of the beach without leaning over the rail! The shower was horrible, only had hot water for a total of 3 minutes each shower. It went from warm to freezing cold. Not fun! The pull out sofa was horrible as well, it was completely worn out and actually hurt to sit on. Had to put pillows from the bed down to sit on them to try and help it out.
According to pictures it appears as though The Palace has a large indoor pool. This was not the case!! Be warned if you are looking for an enclosed indoor pool it is not here anymore!! I was pretty upset by this.
The breakfast that is included is awesome!! It is a highlight for sure!
On the day of check out we took a load of things down to the car and came back up to the room to find that the keycard no longer worked. It had been shut off prior to 11:00 am. This was a huge pain waiting for room on the slow elevators and staff was less than empathic.
Not sure that I will return to The Palace. Plenty of other better choices in the area!
