Great Cancun Getaway!! Posted May 20, 2015 on Hotels
I can't say enough good things about Sun Palace. It was very well kept and the rooms well appointed. Staff was very friendly, always willing to go out of their way to appease. Food was wonderful, I would rate the restaurants in following order: 1. Italian (brie pizza was fantastic) 2. Mexican 3. Thai (best deserts try the tempura banana and ice cream sandwich) 4. Steak. We loved the adult/couples only atmosphere. There was enough to do, more if you want to venture to the sister resorts. There is a large “party pool" with swim up bar, and activities throughout the day. A few smaller pools are much quieter, but still have dedicated and convenient bar service. The beach had some seaweed, but didn't detract from the beauty of it. Waves were on the larger side, not calm, but fun to play in! Like most resorts, pool chairs go quick. Folks come down early and put towels on to hold. A little annoying, but if you want a chair, I guess play the game. Workers run day long on the beach to set out chairs and umbrellas, there seemed to be plenty of them to go around. The staff worked their butt off, and I was a little surprised that few people tipped them. I personally carried a few 20 Peso bills and tipped accordingly. It wasn't much, but something to show my appreciation for the excellent service. If you have questions about getting around, ask the bell men, they were always helpful! If you are a couple looking for a relaxing get away, book at Sun Palace- you won't be disappointed.
