Moon Palace Cancun
Posted 12 February 2007 - 05:49 PM
Hope everyone is doing well, i am new here so am desperate for a little advice!!
I am in the UK so have had to use this website to get some sort of idea what i am looking for- believe me the UK is crap for planning weddings in the Carribean!
We are thinking of marrying at the Moon Palace in Cancun, staying there for 2 weeks and then moving on to El Dorado Royale for one week. I have seen hundreds of amazing reviews on EDR, but i have a few concerns about the Moon Palace.
I have heard there is upto 8 weddings a day and its all a bit shoddy, the hotel looks great its just worrying booking somewhere for your wedding that you have never visited, and it would cost a bloody fortune to just nip over to do that!!
If anyone has any feedback about weddings at moon palace i'd love to hear it!
p.s have already looked at trip advisor!!

You will find tons of useful information here.. I am getting married at Dreams cancun in October....We actually went over to the Moon Palace last august for a scouting trip to have our wedding there..it was a very nice resort but for whatever the reasons, i decided against it. We liked it because it was kid friendly, but with all of our invited guests, it was just 2 big! The property is amazing, but just 2 spread out for my taste.
How many guests are you planning on having? Any kids?
I'm sorry that I can't help with the ceremony part of it...we didn't get to see any weddings take place while we were there...
Good Luck, and happy planning!~ Let me know if i can help!

Thanks for replying!
We will have hopefully 4 kiddies with us ranging from age 1-10, and if all goes to plan there will be about 20 of us.
I have heard moon palace is massive its got over 700 rooms i think, might be able to lose some of the more embarassing relatives! I know i am mean!! hee hee!
Anywhy, thanks for replying,

I'm getting married at Moon Palace in 3 short weeks (March 3, 2007). They do have more than 1 wedding in a day, but the brides that I talked to said that everything ran smoothly and since the resort is so big it didn't really matter. There are some reviews on the forum, as well as pictures. I'll try and post the link to them. Otherwise, PM me and I'll forward some to you. It's a couple of other MP brides on here with loads of information (OneLove, gunde, etc.). I'm sure they'll be posting soon. Good luck and feel free to contact me with questions.
By the way, I've never been to MP either. I'm just going off of recommendations.

I'm getting married at dreams cancun, so I'm not much help with moon palace. I also looked into moon palace, but as Leigh said it was too large for what I was looking for. But thats a matter of personal preference.
Lenitas wedding is coming up soon, I'm sure she'll have tons of information to give you when she gets back and pics to share. And the other moon palace brides will chime in soon too, I'm sure.
Let us know if there is anything else you need help with.
P.S. I'm going to EDR for my honeymoon, I have heard its amazing as well!

cant wait till lenita gets married there in 3 weeks to find out more info! hey lenita, btw, you mentioned you talked to some other brides who got married there already...can you pm me their addresses or forward the info that you have from them? that would be AWESOME!!!!
sorry i only have these two places to give you info on, but thats what we narrowed it down to and why we ultimately went with MP. oh yeah, and MP allows kids but EDR doesn't - wasnt an issue for us cause we're not having kids coming, but something you would have to consider. oh, and MP is only 20 min from cancun airport, which was important for us for our older guests cause we didnt want to make them spend any more time traveling than they already had by plane! hmmm, i think thats it. from my initial research, i think dreams cancun would be another great option, as has already been mentioned. also consider riu palace mexico, (and some of the other rius) which are cheaper i think and also allow kids. reason we stayed away from those was we didn't want the whole "cancun" thing - we wanted to be a little more secluded and not in the same area as all the spring break type crowd in cancun - that may be a totally unfair stereotype, cause ive never actually been there!!!!! holy crap sorry this is SO LONG!

I'm based in London too! it's so hard planning and picking a place from afar without being able to visit... I've been trying to pick a place for months now, my fiance is about to go crazy with me!
That said, I did a lot of research on the Moon Palace, and it sounds really beautiful. I decided against it myself because of the location mostly, and because of how large it is, but I have seen beautiful pictures of ceremonies there, and heard great things, so I don't think you could go wrong there.
But, if you feel like it's not right for you, there are so many different resorts in that area, and a lot of them also get fantastic reviews, so you could look a little bit longer and decide on one that you are comfortable with... Although, maybe you shouldn't listen to me because I still haven't picked one!!

Thanks for all your great advice!!
Just going mad trying to choose a great destination!
I i thought getting married abroad would be easier than marrying in the uk but its just as difficult! too much choice!!
