Beach Palace is aptly named, as it's located on one of the most beautiful stretches of beach in Cancun. Part of the Palace Resorts family, Beach Palace is geared towards families, but couples frequent the hotel as well. The property is smaller than the sprawling all-inclusive resorts in the Riviera Maya, which gives it a more intimate feel.

People visit Cancun for the beach of course, and Beach Palace's huge beach has loads of lounge chairs available for its guests. There are also various pools to enjoy, a large infinity pool, a smaller kids pool with a water slide and another small pool with a swim-up bar.
The pool area not only offers beer, cocktails and soft drinks, but there is also a snack bar that serves nachos, hot dogs, wraps and the like. They also set up a grill each day and serve hamburgers.

The fourth pool is the rooftop pool – aka Skybar – which provides breathtaking views of both Nichupte Lagoon and the turquoise Caribbean. This is the perfect place to head for cocktails when the sun ducks behind the hotel each day around 4 p.m. Skybar also offers a snack menu.

Beach Palace's all-inclusive program includes three scrumptious a la carte restaurants: Wok (Asian-casual-dinner); Bocelli (Italian-formal-dinner); La Terraza (grilled fine cuts-casual-dinner); and Tequila, a buffet restaurant open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, where there are also chefs on hand to prepare fresh dishes.
Thirsty? Beach Palace's bartenders will make anything your heart desires. (Try a chocolatey Mudslide.) There are bars at both the downstairs pools and Skybar, and Stadium Bar (which is too pretty to be called a sports bar) on the mezzanine level. Order a Paloma with top shelf tequila Don Julio.
Room service is efficient and provides a large offering. Everyone must pre-order a delicious breakfast in bed the night before at least once.
Speaking of the rooms, they're enormous. Amenities include a flat iron and a blowdryer; an in-room hot tub; comfy robes and slippers; a huge terrace; a minibar stocked with beer, soft drinks, juice and water; a liquor dispenser; and much more. All rooms offer spectacular views of either the Caribbean Sea or Nichupte Lagoon. And, hang on to your seat: calls to the US are free!

After hitting the pool and the beach, there is still plenty to do at Beach Palace. Indulge yourself at the spa with a massage, wrap, facial or all of the above. There is also a small gym that includes dumbbells, leg press/leg curl, lat-pulldown/rear sit down rower, chest press/shoulder press, sit up balls and treadmills, cross trainers and bikes.
The resort has a full activities program that begins in the morning and lasts into the evening. Karaoke at Stadium Bar is a hoot, as singers are accompanied not by tracks, but by a live band. If you feel like staying in the room, there's always satellite television and supurb WiFi. Beach Palace's Kids/Teen Club is currently being remodeled and will feature new amenities, services and activities.
