I am not sure why they call so many hotels 'a palace'. Surely it is not a palace but a collection of bungallows ( some beach front) and a small hotel building. We stayed in a beachfront bungalow and really cannot complain.
The little house we had for us was clean, newly renovated ( or so it seemed), it had an LCD TV, fridge filled every day with bottled water, tea kettle, a comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. The beach was literally two steps from the bungalows - take a look at the attached pics.
The pool was great - it's reasonably deep so that you can swim and not just wade there. We did have some meals in the restaurant and the food was OK.
On the downsides: breakfast is a bit of a joke - that;s true.There's very little selection and warm food is not really warm. Also some of the facilities are not really in their best shape like the parasols at the pool ( some would not stay open) and the little gym is practically disfunctional.
Also remember not to buy any trips or ask for a taxi/tuk-tuk at the reception as they are much over priced. Have a 3 min. walk to the main road and you'll find other travel agencies and taxis where you can bargain the price. For the trips however it's even better to make a taxi ride to the town Saladan - there you will really find bargains.
So all in all, if you look for a very calm place to stay, with no crowds of tourists and really by the beach for a reasonable price, you can surely go there. Just don't have your expectations for a palace but relax, get your drink and enjoy the pool and the beach with not many people around.
