We visited this property for an afternoon while staying at Moon Palace. A free shuttle will take people to visit other Palace Resorts in the area. This was an exploratory visit for us as we stay in the area several times a year, and were curious to see if this might offer a good option for a future adults only trip. Answer...yes...we'd stay there for sure.
We visited the beach (stunning), there pools (pretty good), and their buffet restaurant. It had been raining quite a bit, and they had stacked the beach chairs away, but when the sun came out they were doing there best to get everything back out for people to use. There is a ton of beach and you can walk in either direction and enjoy the scenery. They had beach volleyball going on as well. The pool area offers a few different areas to relax, with a number of bars. I think this area could get very crowded when the property is busy.
The buffet restaurant offered indoor and outdoor dining options, with some beautiful views of the ocean. Food was excellent with many different options, and we particularly liked that you could select whatever type of meat (beef, chicken, pork, tuna, etc) you wanted cooked, and they'd prepare it for you. Lots of fresh vegetables and fruits.
As with all the Palace resorts, the staff are amazing. After swimming at the beach and then the pool, we got changed in a change area off the pool. A staff member noticed that my wife was trying to figure out how best to pack away our wet gear in our day-pack, and ran and grabbed her a plastic back to ensure everything else didn't get soaked. Very thoughtful. I think that one of Palace resorts greatest assets, is their staff.
This is a small resort, so if we decide to visit in the future, we'll only go for a week. If it happened to be a two-week vacation, we'd book a week here, and then a week at Moon Palace as we'd definitely go stir-crazy in such a small space. But Sun Palace will definitely be in the running for a future adults only trip.
