Vacationed from Mar 2 to March 16, 2012.
The Palace and Beach resrots are so close together, it's hard to say where one stops, and the other starts. It's basically one huge resort. Concrete walkways allow you to stroll through the entire complex. Each resort has a Buffet, and several A-La-Carte restaurants; you can go to any of them. We were at the Italian, Mexican, Asian, and Mediteranian. Our favourate was the Mexican. The Mediteranian (Vava Cafe) was OK but the food was not hot. Viva Cafe is on the waterfront, so can get pretty breezy.
We had no issues with service. We always found people very friendly, and only too happy to look after you. It is true that most staff are Spanish or Italian, but there is usually someone around who also speaks English. We had no trouble being understood.
Since my mother was coming along (82), we had requested to have a room close to the pool. Our request was more that fulfilled. We were given ground floor, ocean view, close to the pool; we could not have been more pleased.
The beach is nice, but has some rocky areas. Because of the close proximety of the corral area, it's great to snokel, and see plenty of fish. We saw as much here as we have seen on many excursions during other holidays. There were many chairs always available in sun or shade. No need to reserve chairs at any time. Same thing in the pool area.
The rooms were clean, and our maid was very pleasant, and made towell art several times during our stay. A few days after we got there, the air conditioner started making noise one morning. By afternoon, it was worse, so we reported it. Later that evening it stopped totally. we reported it the next morning, and by 2 pm, there was a new unit installed. Great work!
