    The tournament is not a problem for drinking together at the CP! We tee off at 8:00 a.m. and we're back at the Cancun Palace drinking at the pool bar by 2:00 p.m.!!! I will be the guy in his mid-30's drinking ice cold Sol con limon!!!

    Three weeks and counting Lisaten!!!

    Does anyone have any NEW information about the status of Cancun Palace's beach? Is there a beach left after the last hurricane scare?

    Please advise. Muchas gracias!

    Cancun Palace Beach

    Hey DaveT:
    I emailed mixz1 yesterday concerning the CP beach area. Here is the reply:

    Sorry. We're currently in the US and won't be back for several more days. Last week there was very little beach in front of the Palace and Meridien, but things change rapidly down there. It would probably be best to post a question on the board.


    Please let us know what's going when you get there a week from Saturday! :sunny:

    Hey Jan13th,
    You can count on that! I will provide as much detail as I possibly can, while I'm down there. If you, or any other CancunCare members want me to investigate something, let me know. I'll do what I can and report on it to the best of my ability.

    Nine days and counting!

    It's maddening I tell, driving me crazy. NOBODY is posting pics. It's a conspiracy!! I don't care - I'm going to love it anyway but hey - I don't want to see fluffy people at the pool! I want to see the damn beach!! Ok, my tantrum is over. But it's pretty mean that these people are holding out on us. IS THERE BEACH OR IS THERE NOT. THAT IS THE @$!@ QUESTION.
    :p
    13 days 13 days 13 days!!

    you betcha we will we'll have a toast to cancuncare.com - best thing about tap is no counting those empty bottles!. the terrace bar serves sol - none of the others do. and since no one goes there in the afternoon, we'll have it to ourselves. look for us there thurs afternoon 10/11 - but don't get mad if we've already crashed (they close at ). you know what the first day is like - no sleep the night before, and too many drinks from 11am on. ooooooooooooooh can't wait. and you'll be so easy to find - there's no mistaking that golf sock tan once you get on the beach!!!!!! haaaaaaaaa. i'll have you paged 24/7 til we find you

    Hilarious post Lisaten!!!! There is no doubt I'll be easy to spot. I'll be the sun-burned faced guy wearing a black Titleist hat bitching and moaning about my errant shots! I am going to need your tips about getting an ice-cold Sol, so I will be looking for you "big-time"!!! What should I be looking for, other than a tipsy female drinking Sol? lol

    I have printed, reprinted and studied my eticket til it's disgusting. I've studied flightstats.com til I know every minute detail of my trip. And I've been there a dozen times!!!!! My hubby has cut me off - cut me off - looking at any weather service online, on tv, on radio. hahahahahaha. So, uh, yeah. I'm ready. And I have 8 more days to go!!!!

    Good wishes to you for a perfect trip. Go to the terrace bar before it closes at 6pm for some Sol. It's also where you can find some Don Julio!!!

    I am here at the Cancun Palace. We arrived yesterday morning and the hotel and beach are AWESOME! The beach has receded a little bit, but it is powdery white with no rocks! I would estimate that there is about twenty yards of beach. The weather is perfect. Yesterday and last night I easily requested and received ice-cold Sol out of a quart bottle. It was very good. Although only here one day, I am very, very happy with what I've experienced. The one noticeable thing I've seen since I was here in February is the visibility of the top shelf liquor. It used to be sort of hidden from view in an effort to conserve it. Now it's visible and gladly served in any quantity. We ate at the swim up bar yesterday and had a really good cheeseburger. Now it's off to breakfast.

    I'll try to check in later, if my ice cold Sol lets me! lol

    Hey DaveT,

    I am so jealous of you right now but I will get over it!
    One question, do they have the fountains working in the pool area?
    When I was there they told me that they would be fixed soon.

    Thanks and have fun,
    EB

    Hi Ella,
    The fountains have been removed. No fountains. I am having a very difficult time typing as the guys ion the swimup bar worked veryu hard to over-serve us. They succeeded. It's 6:21 p.m. and I am having problems focusing on this computer scrrreen.

    I measured the beach...it is abou 40 feet in length. It is awesome!!!

    Gotta run, we're going to keep this party going by runnig out to Senor Frogs.

    Sorry for the sloppy typing. It's not my fault. lol

    Toooo funny. Keeping the party going, that is what I like to hear!!

    I had a feeling that those fountains were not going to work out.
    What did they put in their place?

    Have fun!!!!!
    P.S.
    how was Senor Frogs? Crowd? Music?

    Good morning EB424. In the area where the fountain guns were located, they simply added more decorative rock to fill in the holes. Senor Frogs was a blast, as always. The usual obnoxious and carefree attitude was everywhere and I loved every second of my time there. Don't remember leaving....but I am sure I loved it. lol

    We are having a great time here at Cancun Palace. The beach has been fantastic. The only major let-down is that they still have not put in ANY palm trees near the pool. The entire back side of the property is palm tree free.

    We ran down to the Beach Palace yesterday afternoon and it has a long way to go. The entrance and lobby area are completely raw. No walls, drywall, lighting, etc. The rooms looked to have been finished, but we couldn't get near a room because the elevators are not finished yet.

    The one really cool thing about the Beach Palace is that we are learning that Palace Resorts is reassembling all of the old staff and putting them back together at the newly renovated Beach Palace. We have spoken to several of the old staff and they are excited to get back together.

    Gotta run, we have a practice golf round at the Moon Palace in an hour.
