We stayed for four nights during a conference my husband had for work. We had a great time. The Hotel Room- The hotel room was spacious and clean. They provided a crib at no cost which was great. I didn't like the toiletries at all. I think they were My Earth brand and they weren't good. I suggest bringing your own. Oh and that's another tip- there is a Dollar store and drug store leading to this place so stop on your way and stock up on pool toys, gallons of water (the sink water didn't taste good), sunblock etc.
The Hotel and dining- The hotel itself is large but once we figured out which elevator to use for what, we were good.We were in the north tower overlooking the pool and pyramids which was nice. The pool is great. they have a shallow end where our 4 year old hung out. A waterfall under a bridge and a (bonus) pool bar as well as waiter service. I think beers were $4 and mixed drinks were around $8. Typical resort prices. We ate at the Cafe restaurant for breakfast. they have a reasonably priced kids menu which is appreciated. The eggs Benedict Florentine were great. The next day my egg was under cooked with my meal so it wasn't so good. But its an ok place. The staff at the hotel were all very nice and accommodating. Mr. Alvin who took our bags up was great.
The Resort- So much to do. Palm Beach was awesome for our family. Our 4 yr old loved it. They have a something for everyone and provide hotel guests with beach towels. And our girl enjoyed the kiddie size water slides. They serve food and cocktails there too. The aquarium and rain forest pyramids were very nice. We did the 4d movie which was cute. The grounds of this entire place are BEAUTIFUL. The landscaping is so tropical and lush. they do a great job. We didnt make it to the third pyramid or the Pirate exhibit. Like i said, just so much to do. they also had a moon bounce, corn hole and a big playground. The pool is open late- another bonus. There is a restaurant in the rain forest pyramid and i wish we would have learned of it earlier. it has a great view of the water. There is also a Starbucsk in the hotel and a nice lobby bar and steak house. We ate at the steak and had a nice meal. They have a dress code but will seat you in the lounge if you dont want to get too dressed up. The view from the lounge is better anyway!
We ate off site at the Cajun Greek and had a great meal. Its casual and kid friendly. And like i said, there are stores close so forget packing too much and grab it when you get there. I forgot to mention MG is literally across the street from Schlitterbahn waterpark It looks fun, but Palm Beach was perfect for our family.
All in all we had a great stay and were sad to leave. Well done, MG.
