I don't think you can go wrong with any of the sides. It really just depends on what you're looking for. Here are some of the things I know about each:
Sunrise: Huge lobby-great for getting together with people for drinks, swing bar outside, largest pools at the resort, houses the dance/disco "Andromeda", salon, gym, gift shop, has the kids play water area for those with little ones
Nizuk: Has a smaller lobby than Sunrise but still very nice, houses the wedding offices, salon, gym, gift shop, has all three wedding gazebos, large outdoor pool area but quieter and smaller than Sunrise (a little more party atmosphere at Sunrise)
Grand: Tiny lobby area (not for getting together with people), gorgeous new rooms, smaller infinity pools but VERY NICE, much quieter than the other two sections, fewer restaurants nearby however this section is BEAUTIFUL.
There is A LOT MORE to each of these areas but this is what I know of them. I've stayed at the Sunrise and Nizuk side and have had a great time at each of them but prefer the Sunrise lobby for getting together with friends and the HUGE fun pool area that offers a lot of variety and has the swing bar
The ocean at the Moon Palace is not the best beach Cancun has to offer... but the main draw for this resort is EVERYTHING else... you will not regret it.. there is SO MUCH MORE at this resort than ANY OTHER in Cancun. However many tend to take day trips to the other Palace resorts (Cancun, Sun, Beach Palace) to visit the beach to get the turquoise water experience (there are shuttles provided for that)...however lately the water conditions for all of Cancun beaches lately are very strong and there are usually Red flags out (no swimming) anyway but it's nice to walk on the beach or lay out. There was also A LOT more seaweed than normal at the Moon Palace when we were there but none at Cancun and Sun Palace (We didn't go to Beach Palace this time and we honeymooned at Sun Palace)
Hope this helps
