I stayed here with a group of adults and two tween children in February 2010. Despite the crazy weather (sometimes cold, sometimes rainy) we had a wonderful stay. The hotel is immaculate, and the rooms are large and plush. They say every room at the Beach Palace has a water view. My room was facing the laguna. It wasn't the Ocean, but it was still quite pretty and quiet. We obsessed quite a bit about which all inclusive hotel to stay in, and I think we made the right decision. While we were there, we checked out all the other Palace Resorts, and ate at some of them as well. If I had to do it again, I would stay here or at the Cancun Palace. The kids liked the Cancun palace because it was bigger and had a lot going in. But, I liked the Beach Palace because it was more quiet, and more like a boutique hotel than an over the top all inclusive. It is great for adults, particularly the roof top pool and bar. The Moon Palace seemed too big, and frankly a little bit tacky to me. Lots of people in Old Navy t-shirts, and run-down looking beach chairs (with seagull poop on them--yuck!). And, the Moon Palace truly had no beach. The beach at the Beach Palace was incredible (as was the beach at the Cancun Palace). Some of our friends tried out the Sun Palace, and thought that for younger and hipper adults, the Beach Palace was a better place to stay. I had never stayed at an all inclusive before, and I have to say the food was better than I expected. Cancun isn't Paris, so I didn't really expect to wowed by the gourmet food. The drinks were terrific. The coffee was great. I must have had a cappucino at every meal. And, I never went a day without their terrific coconut ice cream. We did a few of the included excursions, including the Zip Line and the Water Park. It was wonderful to have these trips included in the stay. We enjoyed the sushi bar and the Hibachi restaurant at the Cancun Palace. I thought that the service at this hotel was terrific. At every meal, and at the pool, the bartenders and the wait staff were friendly and courteous. I thought the food at the pool bar was the best--great sandwiches, shrimp cocktail, ceviche, and guacamole. Everyone is right when they say bring a lot of $1 for tipping. I ran out, out the front desk happily exchanged a couple of twenties for more $1 bills. On a final note, my daugher got an ear infection (swimmer's ear) while we were there. The hotel has a doctor on call. I called first thing in the AM, and he was there in 45 minutes. The visit cost (if I remember correctly) $65, and the Dr. brought the antibiotics with him. (They were an additional cost). So, within and hour and a half of my daughter waking up in pain, we had seen a doctor, and had medicine in our hand. Very convenient!
