We stayed at Sun Palace over New Year 2016/17. Sun Palace is a little removed from the main hub of Cancun and therefore a bit quieter. There is a bus stop right outside though and they are brilliant value for money. 5-10 minutes takes you to La Isla shopping mall, five minutes more to Coco Bongos etc. Check in was...

We just returned home from our first stay at Sun Palace. It was wonderful! There is LeBlanc, and then there is Sun Palace. They have a lot of similarities. Sun Palace is slightly more down to earth and more economical, yet still a fabulous place with great people. We are so happy we decided to go there. Everyone on the...

Liked your comments all the way! The way your review reads is the exact way I like my hotel to be perceived. Not cheap by any standards but not blatantly expensive, In reading your previous comments it is obvious that you like good hotels. I very much concur. If I cannot get a decent accommodation I'd rather not go. As...

We stayed at Sun Palace Dec 16 to 23/16, all in all it was a good stay but we really felt like a second class traveler with all the different "levels" at this chain. The food was really good! We enjoyed most of the meals, snacks and drinks. The cost of this resort is fairly high and quality in food...

We just got back from a week at Palace Resorts. We stayed at Playa Car and Sun. My review has nothing to do with service. The properties are beautiful. Our vacation planner, Jessica at Playa Car was phenomenal. My review has to do with the information session that we are requested to do. I explained that we were members, had...

My husband and I (a couple in our mid - late 30s) were looking for a beautiful tropical and romantic getaway which is exactly what we experienced after spending the last 9 days (December 30-January 8 2017) at the Sun Palace. We read almost every review on Trip Advisor before booking and felt confident that this would be the resort...

We visited the Sun Palace for the 1st time and loved it! We wanted to relax and do very little. This resort is for you if you don't want or need lots of stimulation and just want to enjoy time with your honey. The beach is beautiful but the surf can be a bit rough so just enjoy the vista....

Coming from someone with very high standards, you will not be disappointed with this resort. Their service is above and beyond and the Sun Palace is truly stunning. The beach is breathtaking and you fall asleep to the sound of waves every single night. If you enjoy walking, this is the perfect resort as you can walk for miles along...

I think they even (or at least they used to) sell these gizmos that emulated the sound of waves to help you sleep better. I am elated that we fit your bill and hope this will be conducive to many more visits. We shall always remain a haven for those of us who do not like loudness or stupid antics....

We really enjoyed the facilities, food, drink and above all the wonderful staff at Sun Palace. They really do care about their guests. One restaurant in particular at Sun Palace was very impressive. The breakfasts at the Alamo were great and the manager there Omar Moreno runs a super operation. We also spent a day at Palace's Le Blanc resort...

Thank you for your kind comments and good score. In general I feel you are quite satisfied. The Winter months are stop and go in terms of ocean and wind behavior. But the heat is mostly there and so is the beach. As long as you feel well taken care of.....we're ok. When's your next time? Best regards, pwinkler@palaceresrts.com
