If you stay at the Palace, you can use all the facilities at the other two except the evening ala cartes.

The food will be better at the Palace. You can only go to the Morning buffet or Lunch buffet at the Jalisco or the Vallarta, but you can Not go to the Ala Cartes..

You can also go to the Disco at either.

Jalisco is about 4 block walk to the North of the Palace on beach (longer on street) then there is One Condo and then the Vallarta.

My husband and I ate at Krystal's, Kyoto, and the Steak House. Our favorite was Kyoto, not because sushi/asian food is our favorite, but we found the food just better overall.

Krystal was very good, but its not for everyone...think very unique flavor combinations / fusion food and not for the picky. We did see some people leave after looking at the menu. Also, not the place to take children if you have any, they wouldn't find anything to eat. Definitely worth a shot though if you're open minded and enjoy all types of food.

The steak house was ok, but you'll have no problem booking it because its never busy, we didn't have a reservation and got in just fine.

Didn't try the Mexican restaurant as they always had amazing choices at the buffet.

I'm pretty sure when we emailed ahead of time we were allowed to make 2 reservations...so good luck and enjoy!

Lamb at the Steakhouse was amazing. Baked alaska flambe for dessert.

Sea bass and pumpkin with scallop soup at the Krystal.

Kyoto great the first visit, second and third visit did not care for much.

Guacamole has good shrimp fajitas and some fish wrapped in some leaf. Name starts with X, cannot remember. Mexican coffee is quite a show.

If you email them in advance they usually get you reservations to the Guacamole or Steakhouse ...
