Exceeded our expectations in every regard! The Palace Resorts are always above average All-Inclusives, but the Adults-Only Sun Palace at the southern end of the Zona Hoteles in Cancun is exceptional. A most gracious and extra-attentive staff - every request, no matter how minor, is met with "It's my pleasure" - made our stay even more luxurious and comforting than expected. Four terrific restaurants offered varied dining xperiences, although our favorite was La Steak - with lovely fish entrees despite the name - where we dined on the pool level overlooking the beach almost every night. Wonderful, fruit-filled buffets each morning, with any omelette you could conjur, were a special treat on the outdoor veranda. Staffers roamed the Caribbean beach all day bringing us drinks and snacks. Our 6th floor jacuzzi-equipped room, with its private and beautiful view, was a great spot for our afternoon and after-beach siestas!
The unfortunate situation of other parts of Mexico is no where evident in Cancun, or the Riviera Maya. A 3.5 hours flight from New York, home of ice and snow, simply adds to the appeal of this easy to reach destination. Mid Feb temps in the 70s and 80s more than make up for the few rain showers. Local shopping at Plaza Famingo or Mercado 28 are musts. If you visit the former do NOT pass up lunch at Habeneros across the stret. Local Yucatan cuisine at the phenominal price of $8 for two was one of our surrpises.
Sun Palace is 20 minutes from the cancun airport and less than a half hour from major attractions like zip-lining, doplphin swims, horseback riding, hiking, kayaking, etc. Tulum is 2 hours away, Chichen Itza maybe 3, but both at least one per trip is worthwhile. This is a can't miss spot!
