Palace Resorts, the company that sets the standard in luxury, all-inclusive resort accommodations, is pleased to announce three of the brand’s properties – Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, Beach Palace and Le Blanc Spa Resort – have once again been honored with the prestigious American Automobile Association (AAA) Diamond Award.

Beach Palace, the family-friendly escape in the heart of Cancun’s hotel zone, was honored with the Four Diamond Award for the third consecutive year; the brand’s signature property, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, was named a AAA Four Diamond award property for the fourth consecutive year; and Le Blanc Spa Resort, the brand’s most luxurious offering, received the esteemed honor of the AAA Five Diamond recognition.  

“The AAA organization is pleased to honor Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort and Beach Palace with the AAA Four Diamond Award and Le Blanc Spa Resort with the AAA Five Diamond Award. From Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort’s incredible array of amenities to Beach Palace’s remarkably service-oriented employees, Palace Resorts is a company truly committed to delivering superior standards,” said Tony Perrone, AAA manager for Mexico. “For any hotel to maintain the extraordinary standards required for securing the AAA Five Diamond Award is an incredibly challenging feat, as our statistics indicate. For an all-inclusive concept to do so is even more significant. Le Blanc’s ability to achieve the coveted AAA Five Diamond Rating year after year now for five years is truly a testament to the owners, management and the entire team that can attest to cultivating a company built upon exceptional excellence in hospitality.”

Each year AAA reviews more than 28,000 hotels including resorts, historic inns, B&Bs and more. Just 0.4 percent make the AAA Five Diamond list. Le Blanc Spa Resort has achieved this prestigious recognition for the fifth consecutive year. Continuing a 78-year-old tradition, AAA’s professionally trained inspectors use published guidelines to conduct unannounced hotel and restaurant evaluations, assigning approved establishments a rating of One to Five AAA Diamonds. Properties identified by AAA as possible candidates for a Five Diamond rating undergo multiple evaluations and are finally selected by a panel of experts.

"As a company committed to offering the highest levels of service and an unmatched quality experience, Palace Resorts takes great pride in being recognized by the influential AAA organization. In addition to celebrating the success of Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort and Beach Palace once again achieving AAA Four Diamond status, Le Blanc Spa Resort’s fifth consecutive year reaching AAA Five Diamond status is an accomplishment we are particularly proud to receive as a company and from a destination standpoint. This outstanding recognition could not have been achieved without our invaluable staff on property," said Gibran Chapur, executive vice president of Palace Resorts. “We believe Beach Palace, Moon Palace and Le Blanc are highly regarded by past and present guests alike due to the brand’s ability to continue raising the bar and redefining the concept of what an all-inclusive experience can and should offer, and it is an absolute honor to be recognized for our high caliber service.”

Palace Resorts continues to shine through the rating system with premium service standards, personalized guest experiences and outstanding on-site amenities. Le Blanc Spa Resort was a standout in the annual rankings, which are reserved for superior properties that exemplify the highest level of excellence in every facet of operation. The Four Diamond ratings awarded to Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort and Beach Palace include an extensive array of amenities that exceed guest expectations combined with an impeccable standard of hospitality, service and attention to detail. The Five Diamond rating given to Le Blanc Spa Resort exemplifies the ultimate in luxury, sophistication and comfort with outstanding physical attributes, meticulous personalized service, a variety of amenities and impeccable excellence standards.

Beach Palace, the ideal locale for an unforgettable family experience, features gorgeous stretches of white sand beach. The property’s contemporary design has unique features such as a Sky Floor with two swimming pools, two swim-up bars, two whirlpool tubs, a breathtaking view of the Nichupte lagoon and a fitness center. Additional amenities include a massive outdoor screen where evening shows and televised sports events are projected for guests’ viewing pleasure. The AAA Four Diamond Award is a testament to the property’s high caliber level of hospitality, facilities and amenities.

Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort’s status as a Four Diamond Award winning property was achieved through superior quality service and attention to detail for the fourth consecutive year. The property, consisting of three luxurious sections — Moon Grand, Sunrise and Nizuc — is a family resort that offers something for everyone; more than 2,000 luxury guest rooms, including accommodations overlooking the sea and the garden or suites with view to the seven-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature golf course and luxurious spa. Multiple pools meander along the more than 650 feet of beaches and are complemented by multiple swimming pools for children, a pool on the golf course, swimming pools and six swim-up bars. The resort has a variety of activities including a FlowRider double-wave simulator, Wired Teen Lounge, NOIR, a state-of-the-art nightclub, a fully equipped gymnasium and kids club dubbed "The Playroom.”

The AAA Five Diamond adults-only Le Blanc Spa Resort, consistently recognized as one of the world’s top all-inclusive resorts, is located in a secluded enclave between the Nichupte Lagoon and the glistening Caribbean Sea in Cancun, Mexico. Le Blanc Spa Resort guests are not only looking for the ultimate in relaxation and luxury, but also want to take full advantage of everything the resort has to offer. From the moment of arrival, guests are treated like royalty as butlers present signature drinks, chilled scented towels and tropical flowers. The 24-hour Le Blanc butler on each floor caters to guests’ every whim, starting with a check-in escort to elegantly appointed waterside rooms, all with amazing views of the Caribbean Sea, where countless luxury amenities accent this charming luxury escape.
