A June 2005 trip
to Cancun by cjwelty
Quote: This was our first timeshare experience as new RCI members. We elected to trade our week for one in Mexico at the Sun Palace in Cancun.
Hotel | "Sun Palace"
The room itself was nice and very clean, but when I booked this hotel, we were told that we would have a full ocean-view room, which was not the case. It seems that the hotel gives the RCI members rooms that are not as nice because we have a timeshare already. The people without a timeshare are offered the better rooms and then are pressured into going to their timeshare presentation at the Moon Palace. As this being our first experience in exchanging, we were a bit taken aback.

Sun Palace All-Inclusive
BLVD KUKULCAN KM 20 HOTEL ZONE
Cancun, Mexico 77500
The lobby was a nice size, not too big; it is connected to the lounge area with bar, and at night there is something always going on there. The had a happy hour each night starting at 6PM with special types of food, which was very nice to have after getting back about that time on some excursions.
They had a couple of special shows in the ballroom of the hotel, which are a must to go and see all of them. Circus night was one night, which was fantastic, along with different types of dancing shows. All a must see.
The pool area was small, but very nice and very clean, with activities throughout the day depending if people wanted to participate. The beach was very nice, with huts and lounge chairs all around, and bar service now and then. The water when we went end of June was warmer in the ocean than in the pool. The waves were kind of large at times, but a lot of fun - no undercurrent when we were there.
The rooms were nice and clean, and the maids are very friendly and try very hard to please you. Except for the problem we had when we first checked in the unit they assigned us (TC108), our second room was very nice with a very nice ocean view.
