Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sonja and Howie:



I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know what a great time we had at your Palace. You were true to your promise that we would have the time of our lives. The Palace was magnificent, the food was delicious, the staff was fantastic, and the area was breath taking.



It was very hard for us to say “good by” to the Palace and staff. We are totally spoiled. We look forward to a many return trips. Thanks again for a most memorable vacation.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

There aren't too many things in life that can be called "perfect", but the week we spent at The Palace was just that...perfect! From the minute we arrived at this gorgeous location everything was just wonderful. The meals that Pilar prepared for us were the things dreams are made of - I'm STILL thinking about them. Jose and Patty took wonderful care of all our needs, including freshly laundered clothes each day. The Palace itself is beautiful - the living and dining rooms are outdoors so you don't miss any of the magnificent scenery.

It was the most relaxing week I've ever enjoyed and have been telling everyone I know to try and get there for a vacation.

True Palace By the Sea!!! Wonferful!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is a true palace by the sea, gorgeous location in a super safe gated community in La Punta Manzanillo. This house has it all, you have a 5 people staff with an incredible chef that will amaze you with exquisite food. Large and spacious suites for all the family, ask for anything and staff will do their best effort to make you happy. House is impeccably maintained, everything works exceptionally well. In La Punta you can enjoy your own private beach, one of the best beaches I've ever been, no vendors. no quads, etc... House is for total relaxation. I really recommend this house for a family vacation, wedding or travel with friends.

Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful time at the Palace. Jose’ and the staff were accommodating in every way. Jose’ and the staff especially took to the needs of our young grandchildren. There was always snacks and fruit and they made the kids special drinks every afternoon. The food was beyond excellent, and always punctual. Prior to arriving, we were asked to create a menu that we would like to have cooked. Everything was so good, by the second day we asked her to cook her favorites. Her favorites became ours. Having the Suburban and golf cart available made it easy to take excursions within the gated community and out in the surrounding area. Jose’ helped line up the opportunity for the family to take advantage of massages, fishing and shopping. Having young ones swimming all day and night, it was nice to always have dry towels. Every morning our clothes were washed and folded. Anything we needed was instantly taken care of.

Our Great Time at the Palace

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Palace by the Sea was the definition of a luxurious vacation. The attention to detail is impeccable.

Escorted from the airport by limo, we were greeted by a fabulous staff who carried our luggage into a gorgeous, spacious, and well-appointed room.

The villa's living room is an enormous open atrium overlooking the ocean. All views are grand - visions from a beautiful dream. Favorite areas were the large pool, jacuzzi, outdoor lounging and dining, the exercise room and the media room. Complete with indoor and outdoor music systems we relaxed to smooth jazz, danced when wanted. At sunset we watched the incredible views serenaded by the waves and the breeze.

Chef Pilar serves meals fit for a king. The fresh Margaritas, courtesy of Jose, are to die for. Twice we arranged for a delightful massage from the local massage therapist, Cecilia, who came to the villa. Everything is provided in the most thorough, loving, and exquisite way. You never have to lift a finger. The entire staff is kind, friendly and always accessible. They made our stay totally enjoyable and relaxing. Our special occasion was gloriously celebrated. We simply let them know and watched the magic happen. At the end of our stay, we wanted to hug every staff member.

Our time at Palace by the Sea was a treasure and we look to return soon. We highly recommend The Palace to anyone who demands the best.
