“Buyer beware”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

First off there is no air conditioning. The room we were shown was small, dark and dull facing a wall. We left without checking in. The location is fine, facing the harbour and the square which is party central.

It's perfect location. We had a great view from the room. Rooms are clean, and bed is comfortable . Staff at the reception was helpfull and they told us where to go and what to see on the island. At that time there was the manager, and she also took some time and had a drink with us at the terrace. Really pleasent.

Hotel is set on the sea, facing the docks and boats, which makes for a beautiful breakfast view. Rooms are standard European rooms, some with two twins and some with queen beds. Bathrooms are small but doable and include nice toiletries for use. Staff is overly friendly and helpful and come ready with recommendations and tips for restaurants, sights and ferry trips. Breakfast will suit both European and American needs and is a delightful start to the morning out on the terrace.

Rooms are a bit noisy and expensive, but that's to be expected on a busy and popular party island. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Choose a sea view on the second floor. I was in room 213 and it had a lovely view with a balcony an...

Staff at front desk were wonderful. views were wonderful. All other aspects were poor. Bedroom furniture was white plastic; restaurant staff were snarley(except one gentleman who was very responsive); foodedicore at best;silverware was dirty. Being industrial strength ear plugs for the night time noise. PS no air conditioning. This place needs an over-haul and new management.

The location of the hotel is great. Except if you want to sleep at night, it's just in the center of all the partying, so expect noise until very late. Breakfast is very good, and the view from the terrace is lovely. My room on the top floor was old fashioned, with old carpet and the bathroom looked and smelled like a hospital, it was ok nevertheless. Price is too high for the room's quality. Staff are very friendly.

Room Tip: Rooms on the back side (not sea side) are quieter

The Palace is in a great central location - walking distance to all of the main beaches and water taxis, bars and clubs, and restaurants.

Pros:
+ Comfortable and Clean
+ Central Location
+ Great Breakfast Buffet
+ Friendly Staff
+ Priced right

Cons:
- No AC (they have a ceiling fan in each room)

I will definitely go back to this place.
