Hi just returned from my wedding at the moon palace and read your thread.
We stayed at the grand section of the resort and there are definately rooms with pools on the ground floor. The rooms at this Grand side are considerably bigger than the rooms at the other sections and have the day beds and table/chairs. If staying at the other sections you do not get the space that a lot of people like on the balcony and are probably the smalles balcony's that we have ever seen however you do get hammocks on the balcony at the sunrise. Family stayed in the neizuc and none of the had these there.
You can currently spend $500 at the spa/beauty salon on hair, makeup, mani, pedi, meke-up etc etc. I decided against having a hair and makeup trial but on my wedding day I didregret it slightly. The makeup was amazing but even after showing the stylist 5 or 6 pictures of how i wnated my hair it still wasn't quite what I wanted, all beit it was still very nice, looking back I would have definately had the hair trial.
With regards to the building works it is still going on and in pretty much every section. This did not effect our holiday/wedding in any way as there are only sections of each section having the building works done. I suppose like anything there will be people that will complain about this and I soon as I knew i was on the phone to the tour operator but I can assure you that it really didn't disrupt anything at all and the resport is so big that you kind of don'e realise that it's happening. What people need to bear in mind is that this resort is so big that once they have completed something at one of the sections they need to start at another. They actually closed down one of the snack bars while we were there replace the roof, floor tiles and painted all within 48 hrs!!
Any other questions just let me know and I will try and answere anything as best I can.
