Wait wait wait! SOOO if I order some hanging lanterns from them they will set up the DIY centerpieces and linens that we bring down to Mexico for free??? Did I understand that right? Do they just pick up your stuff from the wedding coordinator? That's an AWESOME loophole! Also, I was wondering if anyone is having a beach party for their group? Lots of other resorts offer them as special prepackaged thing for like $1200. And they set up a cool beach party, dj, campfire with smores stuff, bar etc. Unfortunately Moon Palace doesn't have a premade option like this, you'd have to kind of create it yourself, but is anyone doing it. I think it would be cool if you have unlimited events. And if you're not sure where to start here is what I'm thinking: Use 1 free private event, beach location iPod technician for 2-4hrs Zuniga lounge seating But I don't know if they can set up campfires on the beach or have ingredients for smores. It's the one thing Moon Palace is missing because I would TOTALLY pay an extra $1200 for a beach party.
I have just been in contact with Katie from Zu±iga and she said as long as you purchase something from them (like they got better centre pieces than MP), and pay the set up fee, they will set up decorations for you. YAY! No $200/per table for me baby :D
I have been reading the threads and thought I could share the good news!
Thank you to who ever posted to contact them, saved my sanity and my pocket :D

I do know that Palace often charges additional for beach set up because it is a more "difficult" space to set up- I would check it out because I think it is a per person fee additional-----also just a suggestion----if you are having an event on the beach bring bug spray for your guests :-)

Oh...we also used Zungia for decorations but just a "heads up" that the set up fee/transportation fee is not cheap! I think it was aprox an additional $900.00 for us for staff to set up/break down/transport/etc.
They did a great job- my contact was Lily-but keep that in mind when you are doing your budget- we used them for the rehearsal dinner and the wedding and they tried to charge us $900.00 a night! We were able to get that price down since we told them we wouldn't use them for both nights without a deal. Good Luck!

Sorry...just wanted to give you a heads up-check with Palace and Zungia- our wedding was on Isla Mujeres (a small island off of Cancun) so maybe the transportation/set up/etc. was more expensive for us-----can't hurt to ask! And just get it in writing....I got "don't worry about it" alot with working with vendors...just ask again and they will put it in writing for you :-) good luck!

I got a quote from Katie at Zuniga and the labor in/out and transportation was only $150 for setup at MP!

Working on writing my review but I wanted to show some of the pictures if any of you all are using Juan Navarro for photography. I havent gotten back all of the pics yet but he posted some to his website http://blog.juanphotos.com/. It is the Stephen and Jessica photos. He was terrific to work with and I am kicking myself for not doing a trash the dress with him as well!
Coco, I had Valeria as my onsite coordinator and she was the most amazing person and was so helpful, so you are in good hands.
FYI, and I may be completely an anomaly...I never spoke to an onsite coordinator before I arrived in Cancun and didn't have my officially confirmed locations until about two weeks out (but that was with Ivis and I learned quickly when I arrived that she did a great job screwing up). Like I mentioned before, it all worked out beautifully and it is a shame that the terrific on-site people have to correct the errors of the Miami folks.
