Best staff and service

5 out of 5
by from Pa
Posted Feb 16, 2017
Our 1st time at Sunset Palace. We will most definitely repeat. The staff surpassed all expectations. They could not be more friendly. Food was very good. Hotel & room top notch. Beach & Pool were also beautiful. Only negative was the resort credits. They are misleading.

Great Hotel

5 out of 5
by from Cape Coral, FL
Posted Feb 15, 2017
Pros: The staff!!!! The service, food and amenities were great! There wasn't much not to love!
Cons: The explanation of maid service lights. And the pools, look like they could use a little remodeling.
Location: Location was great for a quiet vacation. Not a lot to do near by, which is what we wanted, and there was enough to do at the resort.
We had a great time at Sun Palace. The staff was excellent - everyone was extremely helpful and friendly.

40th Anniversary trip

5 out of 5
by from Lexington, Ky
Posted Feb 6, 2017
Pros: Great pools, beach and a level of service from the hotel staff that left you wanting for nothing.
Cons: We had a couple of cool windy evenings. Some in door dining at the Asian and Steak restaurants would be a plus.
Location: We enjoyed our time at the hotel we did not feel the need to venture out anywhere else.
We had an amazing 5 days at the Sun Palace Cancun celebrating our 40the wedding anniversary. We selected the Sun Palace because of the couples only, no children policy. And it worked out just as we imagined it would.

#9 Is about right

4 out of 5
Posted Jan 31, 2017
Pros: Convenient
Cons: Only place we have ever stayed at that does not serve breakfast until 7:00 A.M.. Not really any other option
Location: Location is close to the airport. LA = better, however, since it is near La Isla Mall.
At the time we were researching our options the TA community ranked the Sun Palace #9 out of all Cancun hotels. If you read any of our other reviews you will see that we have experienced Live Aqua a few times and found it to be our favorite of all Cancun hotels so far. Like LA, the Sun Palace is small (a plus in our opinion for the most part). The small size makes everything very convenient. At SP there are 4 restaurant options, and although they are all good we never felt like any of them were really great. If your experience at SP is like ours you will get pretty much everything you ask for. We would rate many things at LA (such as freshness, variety and quality of food; pool; beach; room service; maid service; amenities; atmosphere; location...) 9's 9.5's or 10/10 and Sun Palace in direct comparisons we'd rate solid 8's. For us, Cancun is an "All Inclusive, R&R, Nice Beach" sort of vacation destination. Those are the things we like when we are considering Cancun. SP is ok for these things and we enjoyed our stay and we do recommend staying there if your preferences are like ours. If you appreciate attention to detail and Live Aqua is an option for you, choose it. There are far too many small examples to list but except for the gym (which at SP may be the best we have experienced) nearly everything at Live Aqua was just a notch above the Sun Palace.

Pros: The beach and the staff was the best. Our room was beautiful and clean.
Cons: Everything was awesome
Location: Not too close to the crazy downtown, but close enough to go if you like. All of the malls and shopping nearby was nice.
Amazing hotel, best service, beautiful beach. Super clean! Not one complaint whatsoever.

Perfect spot if you are looking for adults only

5 out of 5
by from Edmonton, AB
Posted Jan 8, 2017
Cons: - Don't have the gym blaring music at 6am - Jacuzzi tubs could use a bit more water pressure, took forever to fill.
My wife and I had a week long trip here (Dec 28-Jan4). From the moment we walked in the door we were treated as a priority. This was our first experience with the Palace resort chain and were not disappointed. We primarily chose this spot due to it Adult-only nature. We loved that it was a much more quiet and relaxed atmosphere compared to other resorts in Cancun that we have stayed at. Although there was an "activity pool" available, there was plenty of pool and beach space for those just wanting to relax, read or do something of the sort. Service and Entertainment staff were great - very personable and enjoyed chatting with them. The 24 hour room service was phenomenal both in service and quality - always a plus for a resort to have something like this! Overall, this is a great hotel and it left a memorable impression on us. Anyone looking for the adult-only experience in Cancun, this one is on a Premier level and we would definitely recommend it!

Beach Resort for adults

4 out of 5
by from Waldorf, MD
Posted Jan 7, 2017
All inclusive adult only resort. Staff very friendly. Premium liquor served at lobby bar but you must request. Shuttle service available to Moon palace only twice per day. Beaches are gorgeous but water is dangerous careful of tree trunks floating inland with waves. Pools are very nice. Most food was tasty.

Dear Niecy, Thank you so much for your review. We're glad to know to had an enjoyable stay at Sun Palace. Regarding the floating trunks, please note the beach is a natural location and therefore we're unable to guarantee floating objects may suddenly apprear. Please be sure our staff will keep working very hard to make sure your next stay is even better. Thank you for the confidence. Kind regards, Sun Palace Team Cancun

Nice hotel, terrible service at tour reservation

4 out of 5
Posted Dec 31, 2016
The hotel location was excellent. Rooms were tidy and clean. Doesn't have much choices in the restaurants. One thing I have to mention is that the service at tour reservation is incredibly terrible. So you could book tours with room credits at these reservation desk at lobby. The guy at the reservation desk asked me to "search for it on internet" when i asked for information about the tours. I mean, really? He just gave me a list of tours that I can book with room credits and that's it. I have to google for each tour if I want to know what each tour is. I don't feel valued as a customer and his attitude made me feel I was not welcomed at all. Btw I think tour price they provided are way higher than they should be. You have to pay more although you can use room credits to pay parts of the fee. I'll recommend to book tour with other tour company.
