Work, kids, family can overwhelm our lives, but when my husband and I needed a getaway, we chose to stay four nights at the Palace. We left the week first week in March, and are counting the days until we can return to this place. The picturesque views are awe-inspiring, and bring you closer to nature. We paid additional to have a seemless arrival in DR, customs and were greeted by Juan Carlos and Javier with delicious fruit punch drinks when we arrived at the palace. We were given a tour of the facility and they have cliffside apartments, oceanview suites, and garden villas. The hotel is a Warwick hotel- which are the top of the line hotels for international and domestic travel. The hotel itself was immaculate! I consider myself a clean freak and everyday the staff were cleaning the grounds, bedrooms, laundry service etc.. They cleaned the floors with a solution that smelled wonderful. The staff: Juan Carlos (manager)Javier, Cynthia (guest services), Ramona, Felipe were all great. They must have mind reading powers (esp) because they would address our needs before we had a chance to ask. The 3 course meal dinners were delicious! We had fresh mahi-mahi, soup, plantains. My husband and I embraced the DR menu which was amazing. There were only 2 other couples during our stay, which made it an intimate getaway. No phones, no tablets, just a chance to reconnect. I know for us it will be a place that we come back to for years to come. If you are considering staying at the Palace, I would say to go for it, but dont tell too many people, that way it can remain "our little secret hideaway."
