All-inclusive vacation, this one was actually a freebie for us, so I am not sure of the prices. Adults only location. Other than special spa treatments, there was no charge for anything. The room had a most comfortable king size bed and a king size Jacuzzi, a refrigerator stocked with water, beer, and colas, plus a liquor cabinet.

The views all around were beautiful. The resort is off the beaten path, so there was no party crowd to deal with, nor the 'vacation pushers' whenever you went outside. Exquisite restaurants from casual to fine dining, buffet style, or waited on. The Palace resorts have superb service. Activities staff are ultra friendly and fun.
