Winter in Quebec, Canada can be quite harsh and so, to get away from the cold and snow, we decided to spend a week at the all inclusive Sun Palace hotel, Cancun in Mexico. This is the only couples only resort we found in the Cancun area. We were treated like special guests at the hotel, a member of the five star Palace Resort Hotel chain. The service and the food were five star all the way!
Upon our arrival we were offered cool towels and a glass of champagne. This set the tone for our week. From the moment we walked into the resort the hotel staff were friendly, polite, and accommodating all the while respectful of our privacy. The food was excellent. The breakfast buffet selection was vast and plentiful. Local in season fruit were in abundance. All our dinners were a la carte. We had the choice of dining in the Grill, the Italian, the Thai or the Mexican restaurants.
Our room, overlooking the ocean, was large and bright. A bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit were waiting for us on our desk. All room service was also included in our package. The beach was soft and white and the ocean was a stunning turquoise blue. The Sun Palace Couples Only Resort was the perfect location to warm our winter weary bones!
