Does anyone know the contact for booking excursions with your resort credits?   I want to do a group event but I never heard back from the contact I found, so I'm wondering if it's old.

I wanted to do a catamaran cruise as a fairwell but I cant do that until I know I have under 50 guests and people are still booking their trips.

 

Ideas please!

Our wedding was on Friday.  A majority of our guests arrived on Wednesday afternoon.

 

- on Wednesday, we did a private event guests meet & greet cocktail welcome party on the Caribbean Terrace at 7pm

- Friday was wedding

 

- Saturday - no farewell event...just all met at the pools to hang out

I would try this contact to book excursions.  I used this contact to book golf.....but it seems to be an excursions desk.

Does anyone know if you get your room upgraded before you arrive or is this one of those things...if we have availability once you arrive? 

 

I can totally see them blowing us off if we have to wait until we arrive to find out if we get one.

 

I will say this....the resort was completely booked up during the week we were there.  Acutally, it was overbooked.  There was a group of 2900 guests from a Travel Group called "DreamTrips" who checked in on Wednesday.  I know the resort was overbooked, because the one family who came to our wedding, and did NOT book through our Travel Agents group room block, got a call from Moon Palace the week before our wedding, explaining the resort was overbooked, and asking them if they wanted to take thier vacation at one of the other Palace Resorts locations in Cancun (Beach Palace/Cancun Palace).  They explained they were coming to Moon Palace for our wedding, and did not choose to move to the other locations.

 

Our guests who checked in on Monday and Tuesday, were able to use thier resort credits to upgrade rooms.  Many of them initially booked either Garden View or Ocean View...and upgraded to Concierge Level, and had some of the absolute best rooms on the property.  Everyone who checked in on Wednesday, were told there were no available rooms to upgrade to (as the huge DreamTrips group had checked in on that day as well, and the resort was FULL).

We are coming in on a Wednesday, I guess it will be hit or miss not that its a huge ordeal, but back in December when we did our contract we chose Ocean View based on the fact we new we would hit unlimited events and be elligible for the upgrade.  Oh well... either way I'm sure it will be fine.

 

I think I chose the end of October for the wedding thinking that it would be low occupancy, but I do know back when the Miami office was still open, I tried to book an extra night to my stay and they told me the hotel was booked solid.  Of course I didn't believe them and called Moon Palace myself and it was confirmed by them that  the hotel was booked solid.  In the end I just booked it through my wedding link (which the Miami office should have thought to do for me in the first place but whatever).  Anyway, recently it seems like some rooms have opened back up within the past couple of weeks so I'm not sure if these were due to room blocks being over, etc.

I am having a welcome/meet & greet cocktail hour on the Caribbean Terrace 2 nights before the wedding.  Possibly a farewell brunch the day after the wedding but I think it may all be too much.

 

I was just at a wedding in June in Cancun and the bride had a breakfast table set up at the buffet for 2 hours the morning after the wedding.  So it wasnt a private function because it was the buffet but her guests could come and go as they please.   But her resort seems more accommodating than MP so we would probably get charged for something like that!

For those of you booking under membership rates, do you know if your guests are able to book for 2 nights only, or whether there is a 3-night minimum? I've now asked this twice of our Miami contact, and he continues to check...

Can soemone tell me if there is a fee per person associated with the Grand Terrace or Selva Terrace for a private function? I know there is a $6/$12 fee for the Carribean Terrace but I was not aware of the other terraces mentioned above.

 

I appreciate everyones help with this in advance.

 

Thanks!
