Going Back - Playacar Palace Sep 2011
As a Palace member, we’ve been to a few of the Palace Resorts all with exceptional facilities and service. Playacar is one of our favorites and we were there in September 2011 to celebrate my birthday. We’re going back this September.
Check in was easy and we were on the 5th floor in a Concierge room with a great ocean view.
Seeing that it was our 4th trip back, some of the staff remembered us and it was like coming home. The charm of Playacar is it’s size, staff, food and proximity to Playa Del Carmen. Downtown 5th Avenue is less than a minute walk where you can experience shops, restaurants, street artists and liquor shops. The ferry to Cozumel is also right there.
We used our $1500 resort credit for a couple of Romantic Dinners on the beach, one in Playacar the other in Cozumel Palace. Steak and Lobster with champagne and wine, truly divine.
Of course without the great staff, this would not be the same experience and there are too many to list them all. Our favorite bartenders, Carlos in the lobby bar with Perla, Gaspar in Luna Lounge also with Perla.
Cafe Del Mar – Breakfast and Lunch – Juanita is such a sweetheart in reception with Jazz as captain always looking after us. Waiter Santos was always ready with our Mimosas with Luis and Israel. Daniel, manager and Gabriel, head waiter made sure all is working well.
Italian Restaurant – Waiters Alejandro and Antonio. Angel, manager and Alfredo, manager ensured our brief Vegan diet was looked after with special not on the menu dishes every night.
Poolside – waiter Leonardo always made sure we had what we need as did Perla and Juana.
Can’t forget the entertainment staff with Super Erick, Gabriel, Fernando, Baxtor and Damaris.
Looking forward to September.
