Four Palace Resorts properties to become Wyndham franchises

By: Jeri Clausing

December 21, 2009

Four Palace Resorts properties in Mexico will join the Wyndham brand.


Xpu-Ha Palace in Riviera Maya will be rebranded as a Wyndham resort. Beach Palace in Cancun and Isla Mujeres Palace and Playacar Palace in Riviera Maya will get the Wyndham Grand designation.


All will continue to be owned and operated by Palace Resorts.


Jeff Wagoner, Wyndham Hotels and Resorts president, said the franchise agreements will bring to 26 the number of Wyndham properties in Mexico and the Caribbean.


"The marriage of our global brand and distribution system with the outstanding Palace Resorts brand and these four all-inclusive properties in Mexico will be mutually beneficial for both companies and our guests," Wagoner said. "We take pride in welcoming these resorts, known for their exceptional service and luxurious all-inclusive amenities, to the Wyndham family."


Roberto Chapur, Palace Resorts president, said the affiliation with the Wyndham brand will provide a global distribution platform to drive bookings.


"By affiliating these four Palace Resorts properties with the Wyndham brand, we will gain exposure to a significant new audience of potential clients through the Wyndham systemâ€s multiple distribution channels," Chapur said.


Earlier this month, Palace Resorts struck a franchise deal with Hard Rock. The Moon Palace Resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, will be renamed the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana in the spring.

Yay! This will make it so much easier to accomodate our guests. Do you know if we book timeshares then do the group perks still apply?

I guess I dont entirely understand what this means for guests of these resorts. does this change anything at all or is it merely a name change?

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
