    Hi There!
    Originally we had planned to get married at RIU Montego Bay however the cost has suddenly sky rocketed for next year so we have been looking at other options. I am absolutely in love with the look of Dreams Cancun...but for shopping arounds sake, i have stumbled across Moon Palace a couple times as well- especially here where the pros are! :) I tried to do a basic flight search but came up empty handed...beofre i go see a TA, which is more affordable? If you have already been married at either, or have visited either...what do you think

      i have not been to dreams cancun, but i did spend one awesome week at Moon Palace. We LOVED LOVED LOVED it. the rooms are all really nice, with a jacuzzi tub, 24 hour room service, inroom liquor dispensors, friendly staff, big pools, good booze included (ie shots of patron!)

      so i'd vote moon palace. You guests cannot be disapointed with that resort, it's awesome!

        i think the rius in jamaica are actually cheaper than both dreams and moon palace ... at least they were last time i checked (which was months ago, so i could be wrong). also it could have a lot to do with the time of year you're looking at (totally different season than i was looking in).

        moon palace is great and they do a horse-drawn carriage for the bride, but we eventually decided on dreams. good luck with your decision-making! it was definitely the hardest thing so far!

          It will actually be several hundred dollars cheaper per person from here! Yay! It sounds like they are both equally beautiful, thanks!

            I'm biased...if you have any questions about the Moon Palace feel free to PM me :) You can even pop over to the Moon Palace thread and ask there if you want :)

              doesn't moon palace has a no outside photographer policy?

              i think right now dreams allows outside photogs for a $50 day pass.

              i used funjet.com to compare prices easily. it helped to narrow stuff down. with airfare getting so high it helps to save on the hotel.

                They do have a no outside photogrophy rule...that's the only thing so far that sucks!

                The way around it is to bring a photogropher with you. If they are a guest at the resort, they will allow it.

                  Best thing to do is read through the threads for both and decide. I was not very impressed with moon Palace location and was looking for something a little more kid friendly so we went with Dreams. happy Hunting.

                    I picked Moon Palace because of the group booking benefits (free nights and private functions) and the fact that it is SOO big that people can find places to "get away" if family drama creeps in.

                    I do have to say that the carriage was also a huge seller.

                      I agree that you should read through threads for both.

                      Another HUGE seller for me for the MP is that if guests stay 3 or more nights, some excursions are included at no extra cost (tulum, chiten itza, isal mujeras).
