“OUR GREAT TIME AT THE PALACE”
Reviewed June 17, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Our stay at Palace by the Sea was the definition of a luxurious vacation. The attention to detail is impeccable. Escorted from the airport by limo, we were greeted by a fabulous staff who carried our luggage into a gorgeous, spacious, and well-appointed room.

The villa's living room is an enormous open atrium overlooking the ocean. All views are grand - visions from a beautiful dream. Favorite areas were the large pool, jacuzzi, outdoor lounging and dining, the exercise room and the media room. Complete with indoor and outdoor music systems we relaxed to smooth jazz, danced when wanted. At sunset we watched the incredible views serenaded by the waves and the breeze.

Chef Pilar serves meals fit for a king. The fresh Margaritas, courtesy of Jose, are to die for. Twice we arranged for a delightful massage from the local massage therapist, Cecilia, who came to the villa. Everything is provided in the most thorough, loving, and exquisite way. You never have to lift a finger. The entire staff is kind, friendly and always accessible. They made our stay totally enjoyable and relaxing. Our special occasion was gloriously celebrated. We simply let them know and watched the magic happen. At the end of our stay, we wanted to hug every staff member.

Our time at Palace by the Sea was a treasure and we look to return soon. We highly recommend The Palace to anyone who demands the best.

“Best Vacation Ever!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

This past winter's brutal cold and high snow accumulations in New England had predisposed my wife and I for finding an opportunity to relax in warm weather, sunny skies and luxurious accommodations. A business associate, a fellow trader actually, had tipped us off to the west coast of Mexico, Manzanillo, where he recommended the Palace by the Sea, owned and operated by Howie Alper and his wife, Frankie.

After spending a week there in April, I must admit there is probably no way I can properly thank my friend enough for his tip.

Our suite had a commanding and unobstructed view of the Pacific that was beyond words. Bright and sunny, yet tempered by soft Pacific breezes - we never needed the A/C - it was perfect in every way. The staff was attentive and yet respectful of our need for privacy; and the food was out of this world, prepared by Pilar who obviously loves what she does. My wife wanted to take her home with us:)

Vacations can be funny. We want to feel like we can stay connected to our "real" lives no matter where we go to relax, and Palace by the Sea certainly provides the necessities to be able, if you choose to; but within hours of our arrival on the first day, we completely forgot about the rest of the world and immersed ourselves in the comfort and exquisiteness of our surroundings. It turned out to be the perfect antidote for that long winter. The only regret we shared was having to pack up and come home.

We both agreed. Palace by the Sea gets six stars on a five star rating scale. We'll be back!
