The Palace didn't start as a luxury hotel but rather a private residence. But now it is open to the public to get a glimpse of what it must be like to live like royalty! The location is ideal. The Cliff House is literally built into the ocean-side cliff. The main building (The Palace) is set back across wonderful landscaping and terraced walkways with fantastic views. A third building (the guesthouse) has 4 guest rooms as well.
This is an ideal location for a relaxing and private vacation. Meals are set out by the staff on the back porch which receives a wonderful breeze all day. Other covered porches and gazebos offer relief from the sun when needed. The pool is comfortable and refreshing. Local wildlife includes resident chickens and peacocks.
However, all of these amazing facilities pale in comparison to the tremendous staff whose only mission seems to be to pamper you and make you feel like you are the only guests in the hotel. To be fair, on two nights, we were. But the morning, afternoon, and evening staff were attentive, courteous, helpful, polite and right there whenever they were needed. The service is truly world-class--unmatched at all but the most exclusive luxury international hotels.
Details: Location on the ocean, not as some Google Maps put it in Rio San Juan. Look for the kidney-shaped pool. ATM available in town; staff will give you a ride. Get a ride from airport thru the hotel to save hassle; meal plan available at hotel too.

The beauty of this hotel was only surpassed by service provided by the staff. Everyone from the concierge to the gardner was helpful and professional. No question was left unanswered, no request too difficult. We will be back. The location to the town center, beach, shopping and transportation was great. The pool is delightful and plenty big enough to enjoy. Lots of sun or shade to sit or lay around the pool as well. We can't wait to book our next trip to the Millennium.

I was intrigued by the price and location. Even though breakfast was included, I never ate at the hotel as I prefer to eat at the local places. I had prepaid for my 2 night stay and had no problems getting checked in. My room was on the 3rd floor directly across from the main lobby. The room is as pictured above, was clean and well-appointed. There is a small refrigerator with some complimentary water and juice. Nice touch! The pool area is nice although I didn't use the pool.

We stayed in Block 4 on the 3rd floor with a view of the ocean. The sound of waves were present at all time. It rained two of the days we were there, but that did not stop us from having a really great time. The buffet food was very good and there was a wide selection to choose from at each meal. The individual restaurants, Gourmet and Brazilian, were outstanding, both the food and the service. We went on two tours during our stay, Jasmine Spa and City Tour. The Jasmine Spa was way out in the county and provided a very peaceful setting to receive a hour long massage. The walk around the grounds of the Spa was a great way to experience the surrounding county. We highly recommend going to Jasmine Spa. City Tours was nothing but fun. Manni was our tour guide and he was not only a great guide, but funny and entertaining. He was able to answer all questions and and mad us feel special.
