Fodor's Review

Older Americans may prefer this classier sister to the nearby Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach resort, though the latter has a reputation for strong animation programs and sports, and attracts young Americans and Canadians as well as Italians. Nonguests sample what it has to offer by buying a day pass (10 am until 2 am). Palace guests can access the VIP Beach Club and the upscale Atlantis restaurant, which has a supplement. The newest, "25", has contemporary fusion cuisine. La Placita, modeled after the central plazas in Italy, is where guests from both resorts socialize, stroll, drink, or take a cappuccino while listening to live music. Alas, Italian clients seem more satisfied than Anglos, and the hotel often overbooks. The long expanse of beach boasts a blue-flag designation for unpolluted waters; snorkeling is good right off the beach. Guest rooms are in blocks, and you will want a sea-view and to upgrade to a Premium room or couples retreat (for not much more). Make certain that you request accommodations that have been remodeled with flat-screen TVs installed.
