    So I see several reviews and postings for Moon Palace, but never see much on Beach Palace. What are your thoughts on Beach Palace
    Thanks for your help!

      I was married at Moon Palace last week. I never made it to the other Cancun Palace resorts, but we did drive past them. They are in the heart of Cancun in the hotel zone. The pictures we saw were very pretty. I guess it just depends on what you are looking for as far as the feel of the hotel.

      Good luck!

        I just toured Beach Palace (as well as many of the other Palace's) when I was down in Mexico last week. Beach Palace was great, I also really liked Playacar Palace. Here are some pros & cons of Beach Palace:
        Pros:
        -BEAUTIFUL beach & water; Cancun just re-did their beach so it is double the size it used to be and you can't beat the color of the water in Cancun
        -Updated rooms and resort with a modern feel: got ruined a couple years back from the hurricane, so they re-did everything
        -Great food: we tried the lunch buffet and everything we has was excellent, along with their drinks (Playacars was also excellent; I think the Palace resorts take care of their food well)
        -2 Sky terraces on the top floor of the building; 2 bars, pools and hot tubs. You can also get married on the very top sky terrace
        -Close to Cancun attractions; walking distance between La Isla Mall and Flamingo Plaza and bus fare is cheap if you want to explore further
        Cons:
        -In the heart of Cancun; may not be the feel you are looking for
        -Beach wedding location isn't totally private if that's what you would like
        -Doesn't have the "tropical" feel that some of the other resorts have with all the palm trees, palapas, etc.
        -Rain site for the ceremony and reception is in a ballroom

        I have pictures if you would like to see any of them.

          Wow, thank you for the information! I looked at Playacar palace online and it looks really nice. I heard they can't accomodate large parties. Did you hear this? I really liked the glass cermony location there, but heard it only holds 20 people.

            Playacar is a smaller resort...a little over 200 rooms, so they probably can't accommodate a ton of people, but I don't remember hearing a specific amount when I was there. I think their wedding terrace can hold up to 40? I don't quite remember. When I met with the WC there he just asked me how many I was expecting (about 30-40), so I suppose if I would have said 100+, he would have pointed out what spaces were not available.

              Yes, I noticed there isn't much info on Beach Palace either. I'm getting married there in Aug so I'll make sure to post a review so future brides won't be so much in the dark.

              I heard it was a lot more intimate at Beach Palace, and all the staff are quick to learn your name, and your guests spend more time together and get to know one another. All the Palace Resorts are stunning though so I guess you can't go wrong.

              Getting married on the sky terrace w/ a 360 view of Cancun and the ocean should be quite gorgeous and is a nice option vs the beach. I want to wear heels at my wedding, so this works out great!

                Hi!!! I am getting married May 1, 2010 at the Beach Palace (2.5 weeks!!!!)... I will post what I think about the experience when I return. So far, the planning has been easy and stress free. My wedding planner doesnt always return emails to me in a timely manner, but other than that it has been great and my guests have had no problem booking rooms with the hotel!

                  Hi,
                  I'm getting married next month at Aventura Spa Palace, what were your thoughts on that resort?

                    Sorry I just saw this post today. Adventura Spa palace was also very nice! The resort pretty spread out, so they have little shuttles that transport people from place to place. That could be a good thing or bad thing depending on what type of feeling you are going for. The wedding gazebo is nice and has good views of the water. It is actually in the Adventura Cove Palace side, so if there are children along they will be able to attend the wedding. They kind of have a man-made beach area, so I guess I would say that is a downfall if you are looking for a true tropical beach feel. The rooms are nice, but a little small compared to the other palace resorts that I visited. The spa area also seemed really relaxing and could hold a ton of people at one time. Hopefully that helped!
