    Hello, I have just returned from Cancun last night. My husband and I were there for 4 nights...(not long enough :oops: ). We really enjoyed it there. Beautiful hotel, friendly staff...food was O.K., but I guess when you drink enough you don't pay much attention the the food anyway. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. :D I think Cancun is a beautiful place to be, so I really don't think it matters what hotel you stay at!! :-|

    It's UGLY!

    I got the answer to my own question last night. And, I don't like the answer. Family members were in Cancun last week and shot extensive video of the Beach Palace, and it is totaled. The severity of the damage to the ocean-side of the hotel indicates to me that the hotel needs to be torn down and rebuilt. There is absolutely NO beach in that area. In fact, the entire concrete breakwall bearing the Beach Palace nameplate has been reduced to rubble. It is so sad. Hopefully Palace Resorts will be able to get going quickly on the rebuilding process.

    December 2006 Projected Opening

    I just spoke with someone in the Palace Resorts organization. I was told that Beach Palace would not be totally torn down, but would be completely gutted and rebuilt. Projected reopening is December 2006.

    It was a nice little resort (little compared to the Palace monsters further down the RM) but I'll betcha Palace resorts was looking for an excuse to revamp and "upgrade" the place. Let's see how they do...

    I agree

    Michael,
    I totally agree. It needed a complete overhaul. The small size, proximity to some great clubs/restaurants, and fantastic staff made the Beach Palace one of the best in Cancun for me and my family. I do believe it will be great once it's complete.

    New Beach Palace to resemble Vallarta Palace

    I just returned from a week at the Vallarta Palace in Nuevo Vallarta. After speaking several times with the PR staff, I learned that the newly rebuilt Beach Palace will closely resemble the Vallarta Palace. I was also told that the Cancun Palace will take on Vallarta Palace characteristics as well. I can't wait to see both properties upon completion.

    It is completely torn down. The only sign of it is the sign out by the street.

    At Beach Palace Site Yesterday

    I spent an hour at the Beach Palace site yesterday and took many pictures and video. I spoke with the general contractor who seriously assured me that the new Beach Palace WOULD be ready to go for December. As of yesterday, the foundation was poured and about 20 steel beams were in place. I don't know how they'll pull it off by December, but it does sound like they are confident. If you want me to post a few of my photos, let me know. Also, if you are interested in any of the whereabouts of some of the old-time Beach Palace employees, let me know.
