We were booked at the Colonial/Tropical for a weeks stay in mid February and when we arrived at the resort we were told we had been upgraded to the Palace for the week.
We have been to the Barcelo for the last two years and were really happy with the Colonial and curious about how the Palace would compare
We were on the third floor in a building close to the lobby. The room is a bit nicer and the bathroom is a lot nicer than the Colonial. Bathroom-double sink with a tub/shower combo and a rain shower walk in. There is a separate toilet area. The room had a mounted flat screen and two long couches in addition to the king-sized bed and desk area.
The room was very cold and it felt great to walk into after long days outside in the heat.
We were able to make dinner reservations for the entire week and the only disappointment was the Japanese. It is in the snack area and the food was cold when we got it, otherwise the food was great. We chose to eat outside on the terraces every night and the combination of the warm breezes and the ocean sounds made the meal even more enjoyable.
We are beach people and we had no trouble getting chairs and staying in the shade when we wanted that. Many sea turtles and fish for the snorkelers and they were easy to see for people just standing in the water too!
We go to the Barcelo for the beautiful beach and we have also always been happy with the service and the dining options. I know we will go back. The upgrade was fun and while we enjoyed it, we have always been happy with the middle part of the resort.
My only complaint is the really hard beds. We also were annoyed by some of the other guests (no fault of the resort). Some people really cannot handle their liquor.
