We went in January for a friend's 40th birthday and we had such an amazing time! The rooms were phenomenal. Other reviewers commented about the far walk, but the only really "far" walking that we did was when we walked to the other parts of the resort. A couple of minutes to get to the restaurant really isn't that bad!
The food - the sit-down restaurants were amazing. Our favorite, by far, was the French restaurant. The buffets were decent. They had some pretty amazing food, if you were willing to wait a couple of minutes to have it freshly prepared (a rib-eye at lunch.. only on vacation!). Otherwise, the buffet food was hit-or-miss. If it was just put out, then it was great, but often times you had to ask yourself "Would I enjoy this if it was only luke-warm?"
The drinks were good - best part about staying at the Palace was the top shelf liquor. I don't think I would've lasted the whole trip on well liquor. Their house wine was absolutely terrible, though, so we did rack up quite a tab on that, but really, what can you expect from an all-inclusive.
The service was amazing. Everyone was so friendly!
All in all we had a wonderful trip. The grounds were perfectly manicured, the adult pool was great (there were LOTS of kids everywhere else). I would reccomend springing the extra cash to stay at the Palace, because we went to every other part of the resort, and it just wasn't nearly as nice!
