A great secret at the Palace , kids love the warm water in Winter and absolutely luxurious environment with great food and service. One of the best Bacon and Cheese burgers around and kids won't share with you. You day will be stress free and relaxed

Cocktails are that one drink that must be enjoyed at leisure in a beautiful surrounding. Just to sit there appreciating your friends company in this magnificent setting! Priceless.

My experience with the pool deck was for the most part a self serve experience. Service staff were not be found, I found myself walking up to the bar, and works to flag down a bartender ( while dodging scores of wasps) although the wait staff seemed almost invisible, the pool area was swarming with offers of foot massage from...

Apparently a 5 star hotel, certainly not a 5 star lunch. Sure we were a large group. But bringing adults good way before kids orders was painful; frozen margaritas were not frozen, Niçoise salad had tinned tune (yes, really!), Caesar salads did not have enough dressing; and so on.

We ordered 2 cappuchinos at the bar, followed up 3 times & only received the order 40 mins after the order was placed - when we were ready to leave

As soon as the staff saw us coming they got our towels ready for us on two lounges with an umbrella. The service is five star for sure. The food that was on the menu was nice and different. The drink and food was not badly priced. The strawberry daiquiri's are great.

The service at the Pool at the Palace is first class, and what a lovely pool area. Shallow at one end for non swimmers like me, but deep enough at the other end for those who want to exercise. Great place to relax.
