    Yes the Beach Palace is open. It opened the week of Dec 15th. If you go on the Trip Advisor site there is a review with pictures. We wer at Cancun Palace on the 16th and heard it was opened. We did not get over there though. I did see the review and pictures, they are very good.
    Good Luck
    Sandy

    Well my brother and sister-in-law went to the Beach Palace today and reported that the place is absolutely beautiful. Very upscale and modern. They said that there were only about 15 guests visible. They sent me several pictures via MMS on my cell phone so I doubt that I can get them posted for you all. The most disturbing picture that I saw was the one that clearly showed that there is NO BEACH!!!!!!! That is very distressing.

    None the less, I am going to book my vacation for Feb. 9-16 tomorrow.

    If I learn anything more, I'll let you know. Can't wait to get the heck out of Chicago.....it's 5 degrees outside right now. Ouch!

    The Beach Palace does have a beach.
    As a matter of fact, it has one of the only stretches of beach that isn't filled with the gigantic rocks that are in the water almost everywhere else.

    Big drawback about the Beach Palace is that it is super-high security. Don't expect your friends to be able to come and visit you there, on the beach or anywhere else.

    PS If you want to use the beach in front of Beach Palace, you can get to it by walking through the ME (next door). The folks at the ME are very friendly and didn't give us any problems about walking through. The folks at the Beach Palace on the other hand... well, we won't be staying there or recommending that anyone we know stay there any time soon.

    Albert,
    I am sorry to deliver crappy news like that, but it is what I was told. I don't like to hear it either as I'll be right down the street from you the same week you'll be there. I am optimistic that the beach will reappear in the next few weeks. Even if it doesn't, I am still going to jump into those warm, blue waters and do some bodysurfing!!!!!

    Can't wait! We booked our flights today, so the countdown is officially on!

    Are you staying at Beach or Cancun Palace? We were at the Cancun Palace on Dec16th and there was not beach. But when we left on Dec 23rd there was like 20 feet of beach in front of the Cancun Palace. The beach comes and goes. In the beginning you could still walk along the beach, as some hotels have more beach front than others. It was real windy the first couple of days and the waves were real high. They were washing up the sand. Then the wind died down and the beach started to come back. So it will be anybodys guess if you will have beach. Hopefully it will stay and get better.

    just my experience over the last 20 years:

    hurricane or no hurricane it always seems that dec and jan bring about high tides. We have gone every month possible and from our experience these particular months are infamous for stealing the beaches in some areas. You can have zero beach for a number of days, then a bit of beach for a few etc.
    Come march - august the tides seem to shift a bit each month. By mid summer the waves are more rolling than crashing...meaning a wider beach with a more gradual slope.
    We leave mid march and expect some days to have a bit of beach, and some days to have none. Almost always, you can find an area near your hotel to "lay out" and relax.

    I use to spend weeks freaking out about the weather and beach. Only once can I remember truly cool weather and no beach and that was a january trip to playa.

    You will always enjoy the beautiful water...no matter what.

    Have fun!

    :D Thank you all for the input . I am staying at the cancun Palace the week of Feb9th to feb16th . But I am a palace resort member and was wanting to check out the beach palace being its open now. I was in Canun in Sept 8th to the 15th of last year at the Cancun palace and there was Beach about 25 feet more or less but lots of big rocks . We had a great time . We really love the water and white sand, it just a bummer when there is no beach . Thank you all for your help Albert in NM

    OK folks, let me tell you. I've been here for two days and I could not be more impressed with the new Beach Palace!!!! The place is beautiful, the staff great, the beer is very cold, the pool is heated, and the food is very, very much improved from the days of the old Beach Palace. We have been coming here for 15 years and the new Beach Palace is most impressive. The rooms are very spacious and elegant. The place is very modern. We are having a phenomenal time here and it is only our second day. Many people on this forum said that the beach is non-existent. Let me say that the beach is at least 25 feet long and is without rocks and seaweed. Very nice. The weather has been 86 degrees and lots of sun. Day two is almost over, but the good news is that we have six more to go!!!!

    Hey DaveT,

    Life in Cancun sounds like paradise right now. It is cold here in Oklahoma City.

    Thanks for the information on the new hotel and beach. Do you like the Beach Palace better than the Cancun Palace so far? Does it seems family oriented as in the past?

    I have been reading that the beach is either non-existent or has huge rocks that weren't there before. If you have time, would you go down to the Cancun Palace and check out that beach area? We are wanting to book for the end of April, but the beach reports are concerning.

    Thanks, Jan

    Hey Dave T! Glad to hear it is great! We heard that a lot of staff from Cancun got transferred to Playa and they may get moved back to the beach palace. I have a few names of friends there that we cannot get in touch with to see if they moved.. .Yanet, Wilburt and Wilburt, Francisco, Angel, Mariana and a few more. Any of those names ring a bell? TIA

    heyyyyyy
    and so you precede me again, Dave T. We're actually gonna give Sun a try this time but I'm glad I came by here to see what's being said about BP. We would like to try it in the fall but were hesitant to try it so soon. What I really want to know is if the construction is over - truly over. That is why we passed it by this April. I know you're next to the ME which has nice beach so I wasn't worried about the lack at BP. And you better take pics - espcially from that room top pool/bar!!!! Enjoy!

    I've gotta tell you......this place is absolutely fabulous!!! And it has only been open two months. The beach is perfect!!! No rocks whatsoever here at Beach Palace. The hotels to the north has little to no beach. But here at BP, we are all smiles!!! The food is much, much better than the old BP. Yes, Palace Resorts has done everything possible to put the old staff back together. These are the staff members who are here that we adore: Fernando, Joaquin, Wilbert, Adriana, Felipe, and many others. The rooms are much larger and a designed very much like the new Cancun Palace. The hotel is only about 1/2 full. The kids club here is small and I would say that the new Cancun Palace is probably better suited for kids than the new Beach Palace. Yes, this is a family place, but the kids club at the Cancun Palace is unbelievable. In all, I could not be happier with the new BP!!!! It rocks! Back to the sun!! It is 86 and not a cloud in the sky!!!!!!

    I'll check back soon!

    I will take lots of pictures for you guys!!! I don't know if I mentioned earlier, but the rooftop pool is sooo cool. When the sun gets hidden by the hotel next door, most everyone heads to the rooftop bar/pool to get an extra two hours of sun! The view from the top is so cool. Unfortunately for me, yesterday Fernando was working the rooftop pool bar and he kept me plied with many, many consecutive Dos Equis con limon!! By 6:00 p.m. I was whacked! My head is pounding right now (6:25 a.m.)

    Gotta go....I need another Aleve.
