Sunset at the Palms vs. Moon Dance Villas

Recommended Posts

So I am already booked at Beaches Negril for my wedding but I am beginning to have second thoughts. I am torn between Sunset at the Palms and MDV. Can anyone shed some lighthuh.gif? I do see info up her for MDV but nothing for Sunset at the Palms. If there is any info up here for Sunset please point me in the right direction. Thanks.

I think there is one honeymoon review of Sunset at the Palms.

 

The big differences I see between the two properties are this:

- Sunset at the Palms is a small all inclusive resort while Moon Dance is a set of villas with private chefs (if you choose to go all inclusive). You would be eating at restaurants with other guests at Sunset.

- The rooms at Sunset are across the street from the beach in a beautiful garden. Beach access is limited to 7am-7pm, where they have a bar, beach grill, loungers, etc. Moon Dance is located directly on the beach.

- Sunset is located on Bloody Bay, which is farther from downtown Negril. The beach will likely be less busy than in front of Moon Dance, which is on the busy part of the beach.

 

I haven't been to either, so I really don't know the details for the wedding package for either. I would take into consideration how much time you want to spend with/apart from your guests, since if you are splitting a villa, you may be together for much more of the time than if you were able to spread out at a resort. Beaches Negril is a much larger resort than Sunset at the Palms with more dining options, but I have heard Sunset has very good food.

Thanks for the help!! I am so torn if I should continue with the plans for Beaches Negril or go with another resort. I think I am just growing tired of the idea of not being able to use outside vendors. I am open to other suggestions for resorts also. Thanks again.

I'm right there with you Terri! I have reservations at Beaches Sandy Bay in Negril and really don't want a cookie cutter Marths Stewart wedding with many restrictions.

 

I'm thinking of Sunset at the Palms as well. The price range is a bit lower, but you do have less ammenities. I feel like Moon Dance Villas is a bit more expensive compared to the Sunset.

i just got back from vacation with a group of 12 friends and we stayed at moon dance cliffs. it was incredible!!! you feel like a celebrity while there bc how attentive they are to your needs. the food and staff were beyond wonderful and they met all of our special requests in terms of alcohol. even though the beach was busy it is one of the few properties that has a very large section of private beach and they strictly enforce not letting anyone else on it plus when you are on your patio and is your private pool you feel totally secluded. it was def on the expensive end by the time you paid the daily rate and then all inclusive fees but it was soooo worth it! i am getting married in october at their hotel property moon dance cliffs (its not on the beach). its a hard decision but i can tell you we were all pleased beyond our expectations with our experience!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
