I cannot express enough my heartfelt gratitude to the staff at the Sun Palace! The property is absolutely fantastic as well. Recently renovated and done with amazing creativity and beauty. So well thought out as to meet the ever changing desires and needs of ones that choose to come to the Palace properties. We are members of the Palace Resorts for over 11 years. We are so very excited to see the vision of this company. My husband and also myself are both small business owners, so we really see the dedication and heart that is present in the Palace company. We had a beautiful room situation with an amazing view of the sunrise and sunset from our balcony. The rooms inside are done well ~ very functional and beautiful too! Our housekeeping folks were so friendly and do each part of their job with excellence! With the current virus situation they went over and much above on cleaning and sanitizing. But if you preferred they not enter your room that would be honored as well! We had them in:) The property has several food options. We had great service and delicious food. There are also options for special dinners - that give a broader view of the variety the Sun Palace has for their guests. The Awe Spa is great and the staff are too! The services are well done and the spa itself is lovely! The pools and beach are well kept and service is fantastic there too! The staff at the Sun Palace gets 5 stars - an excellent rating because they are the real deal. They are dedicated to serving others with a beautiful spirit and a sweet smile! I say give the Palace resorts a try - you will be extremely pleased! Special mentions : Orlando at the Italian Restaurant Daysi at the Fuego ~and one more gentleman Jesus at the Romantic Dinner Our Housekeeping people Maria,Laudes & Monica at the Spa All the Front Desk, Member Staff in Lobby, Entertainment Staff & the whole Resort Staff Vincente & Alex our Membership guys It takes so many folks working together to make this be as great as it is!! Much Gratitude Blessings, Tracy & Tim
