... look unimpressingly at all the items I saw, so prices came down. I bought some other bits and pieces and decided I'd check the beach. It was a little rougher then the other day, but it was still a soft day compared to the Gold Coast. I caught the bus back and went back to my room, I had last weeks football game to watch. I eased back to that and fell asleep. I arose at 2100. I really was looking for an excuse to say put, but I had to use up these ...
... England threw his back out when the boat was slammed down from a particularly nasty wave. Fortunately only one poor slob got sea sick. Rae and I were wise to dose up on dramamine the night before and the morning of. I've only been sea sick once. Never again. Once on location our boat and others in concert with a helicopter set out to spot the Whale sharks. And find them we did. The whale shark can get as large as 15 meters long. The ones we ...
... Josh took a few dodgy pictures (pic 1) and on we went to the hotel. Our room is great, we had 2 massive beds, a balcony with an impressive sea view and a drinks dispenser and fridge that's refilled every 2 days. This is how I found my love for rum! As all we've wanted to do for since we booked it was get on the beach so we ventured down and went straight into the sea. Heaven ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Beach Palace Cancun
Nice people, not so nice room
upon arrival , the staff was very nice. we arrived a litle earlier than check in time but was shown to our room that was already prepared. the first thing we noticed was the musty smell of the room but was otherwise clean. the linens had a musty sour smell. we had a hard time getting a response from the staff after complaining . we were there for 4 days and had to always contend with the musty smell.
the food was good however somewhat redundant. we did go to the cancun palace to eat, one of the days and were a little more impressed with both the food and cleanliness.
the next time i go to cancun, i will not be staying at the beach palace.
Nothing is bad about this hotel, I am comparing this Hotel to the Omni Hotel in Cancun, where I stayed earlier this year and will always prefer to stay at the Omni when I go to Cancun.
Our first trip to Beach Palace was in July, 2000 after our middle son graduated from high school. The youngest son (at that time, 16) also went. Everyone had a BLAST! The kids found others close to their age to spend the days around the pool playing volleyball, etc., and go "clubbing" with in the evenings (very safe riding the buses anywhere for about 50 cents one way). The beach is probably the most beautiful section in Cancun - we all had a great time. Beach Palace is small, quaint, and clean and the staff was excellent. We loved it so much my husband and I returned the following May for our 20th anniversary and alot of the staff remembered us -were able to give details so we knew they were telling the truth :) - they cooked a special lunch for us, served us poolside with a bottle of champagne and provided dessert for everyone there, then brought us another bottle later in the day to our room.....I can hardly wait to return!
Most of the reviews on these sites come from adults so I figured I'd write one from a teenager's (18) point of view. Last August I stayed at the Beach Palace with my mom, dad, and sister (16) for 8 nights 9 days. We arrived on a Thursday and left on a Friday morning. One thing I def recommend is to take a flight in the morning on the way there so you have all day to relax and to take a flight in the afternoon on the day you go home because we had to be up at 4:30... and after a night out no one wants to be up that early. The staff at the Beach Palace was incredible...everyone was so friendly and everyone from the towel guy to the bartenders knew our names by the fourth day we were there. Me and my sister still go on about the food... the buffet by the pool was our favorite...we always get cravings for the cheeseburgers and nachos and cheese they served at lunch everyday. The breakfast buffet was always appetizing...I got an omlett everyday...and dinner was always fantastic. People complain about the menu not changing but that kind of thing is fine with my family and I... Oh, and those 'watered-down drinks' ... they weren't ever watered down... The rooms were a little damp at times... which was weird... but the A/C was always working when it was sweltering outside. There is a button in the shower... that turns on the whirlpool in the tub... we had a little mishap with that the first day we were there and someone hit it and didn't know why our bathtub was making an aweful grinding noise...that means if u are going to press the button, make sure there is water in the bathtub. The rooms were big...big enough to hold me and my sister's 4 suitcases of clothes and shoes and toiletries. We had a balcony overlooking the ocean... which came in handy when the dolphins would come out in the morning and jump around through the ocean. I found my mom out there numerous times watching the dolphins through binoculers. Hm...what else can I comment about... the pools were great...you have to play water volleyball atung and old...the swim up bar often had young kids hanging around on the stools, which was kind of annoying, but what are you going to do...At the end of our vacation, my dad had had such a great time that he wanted to stay 2 more days...if I hadnt had mono then we def would have...We are going back to the Beach Palace this July and I can't wait!
We stayed at Beach Palace for our honeymoon September/October, 2002.For the money, it was a decent place to stay. The room was very clean, big enough and pretty darn quiet (we wanted it that way!)The airport was easy for us to get through and the transfer ride was very quick and painless. Our driver was very nice and helpful.The hotel itself was nice, though the elevators were a bit small (maybe 4 people at a time). We found all the employees very helpful and our tour guide was excellent. He explained everything to us and that was what we wanted.I really enjoyed the different drinks everyday at the lobby bar. I must have tried everyone they had ONCE and they were yummy! We played backgammon a few times and were comfortable enough to relax there.The pool area was nice, clean and very accessible.We only ate at the one resturant for breakfast and dinner. The fresh salsa was incredible! Though typical of "free food", we liked what was served and did not mind the "same thing". It was rather homey in that sense to be familiar with the food. The wait-staff was excellent and attentive to our needs.The only trouble we had was trying to find out about a gift we had rec'd for our honeymoon: Husband's family paid for The Pirate Ship Dinner Cruise and no one would help us contact the place to verify our reservation! We eventually found the phone book and called ourselves and had a difficult time finding someone at the place who spoke English! We were disappointed that the front desk or anyone for that matter would not help us!Cancun itself is fun to go to and I would go again and try a different Palace Resort for variety.Have Fun!Pattiann
I went to the Beach Palace April 20thru27 of 2002 and had a blast. Actually I was married at the Moon Palace near the end of my trip, I brought a girl with me...lolActually the whole trip was planned around getting married and my wifes folks have time share with Interval International and this resort was one of the locations available for in the time range that we planned on being married. They paid for the whole hotel package as a wedding gift and sent us on our way. They did not have a large sweet at the time we made the resort reservations but I requested an upgrade the second I walked threw the door and they gave me a wonderful room on the corner of the 5th floot overlooking the ocean with a deck that is bigger then the room, and they dident charge me a penny, I kid you not. I did tell them we were getting married tho and they were most grasious.We arrived around 5:00 in the afternoon after a somwhat hectic airport scramble, the airport will remind you of being in a third world country with every Mexican tring to grind a buck out of you for carring a peice of luggage 5 feet, its quite an experience. Just a hint here, talk to know one, let know one tuch your bags and head straight for a taxi and go straight to the hotel. This airport is not what I would call hospitable, its a money trap.Anyway it was a beautiful day and the gentlemen who greeted us sat us down at the main bar and made us cocktails and got all of out luggage together and readied our room. At this time we also purchased our inclusive braclets (dont loose it) and we went up to the room. Room was splendid, fantastic view of a light blus crystal clear ocean and sugar white beaches. We got on our suits when down to the pool and met a ton of people and got drunk and had a ball. The food is fantastic, and if you want somthing that is not on the menu in the restraunt, they will make it for you special. Im not kidding, I just asked for somthing off the menu everynight (mexican cusien off the menu that is) just to try to throw um and theyr the inclusive out of my pocket ill oder whatever the heck I want, and I did..lol.The pool side tenders and waiters are super friendly and fun to hang with. They will not wait for a tip and you practiclly have to force money to get them to take a tip. The lunchen pool menu is seafood shrimp, fish and what not, bergers, chicken, fruit of every concivable kind and of course drinks.The beach is pristine and 2 miniuts away from the pool with jet skies, parasailing and boats landing on the beach 100 ft away from you. The view is spectacular, its like your in a great movie, Im not kidding.I will be going back to the Beach Palace soon, if your wondering if you will like this older but vary nice well located beach resort, i cant emagine anyone not having fun here I had a blast in 38 by the way.Good luck and enjoy!
This trip was great. As soon as we got to our hotel, we were greeted by many of the friendly employees. Hats off to the staff for dealing with my family. We took nine people to Cancun with us, and they did a phenomenal job of treating us with care and respect. As for the rooms, they were INCREDIBLE. We had three people to a room, and each room had an pool/ocean view. The rooms were large with huge balconies. The hotel offered many tours, and a variety of entertainment, including karaoke night. We met many people on this trip, and the hotels was great. I loved this vacation, and have been dying to go back!
Loved th beach palace
I thought it was amazing, the staff, the location it couldn't have been more fun.
Gees, where do I begin...... I actually should still be in Cancun right now but it was so bad we left three days early, but I will tell you why in a few....
Based on the beautiful pictures and other promotional material online, we booked a trip at the Aventura Palace resort. While the hotel lived up to my expectations in terms of luxury and quality, it was located >50 miles away from the main strip. Both the Aventura and Spa Palace resorts hosted an older crowd and didn't have a real beach. Upon the suggestion of more experienced Cancun travelers, we requested a transfer to the Beach Palace. The Beach Palace was older and much more modest but far superior in terms of location. The beach was a minute walk from our room that had a great view and oversized tub. Service and food were great. Next time, we'll skip the all-inclusive plan as Cancun has great restaurants and all the clubs offer an all-you-can drink option anyway.
