My husband, some friends and I had a blast in this perfect getaway spot. We danced, drank rested and chilled during our stay. The service was great, the space was perfect and the food was very fullfillin. We could enjoy the best of both worlds, we relaxed by the adults only pool or by the family bar in the pool on the Palace hotel. Either way, there's always something to do, if not the beds were so comfy that a nap could always be a good option. Other activities:Transportation and yours were very reliable and puntual. Our concierge agent, Emma, provided us with great options for our stay. The boogies and Coco Bongo are a must!!

The six of us stayed for seven days with all inclusive benefits. The service and staff are wonderful. For the most part, the food was great. At couple of times we were disappointed, but nothing major (It's tough ordering seafood in anywhere else but New England!). There is definitely seaweed, but I have to say it was not a deal breaker for me. The ocean is warm and beautiful, and if you walk a few feet past the seaweed, you're good to go. We wish there were a few more activities during the day, such as various games, tournaments, or challenges by the pool. The adult side is definitely more laid back. A few days our group went over to the family resort and enjoyed the swim up bar and more active pool. Our group also did the Adventure Boogies excursion, which was affordable and fun! A couple pieces of advice, bring your insulated canteen (the drinks are small and ice melts fast), a waterproof case for the phone, and some gooood conditioner for the hair!

The room was dated and smelled of mildew and mold. The food was average and we were served cheap liquor. We were told we had first choice as premium level customers to pick the restaurants we wanted and then were told no reservations available. Vouchers were actually just discounts you had to purchase things to get a percentage off. We were not told that. I love the Beach and was horribly disappointed to see how much seaweed was on it every day and could not enjoy being on it. The only upside was that the weather was beautiful so I got to lay out by the pool everyday but I could do that back home also. I wouldn’t have needed to travel and spend thousands of dollars to do that!

Has lots to improve to have some of the ratings given, not worth the value. This hotel brand needs to reevaluate its customer service standards and reiterate to their staff to be able to reach the expectations and or standards of high rating and adults only experience.
