Moon Palace Cancun Review

Recommended Posts

September 2006

we have just stayed at the moon palace golf and spa resort for 2 weeks we had our wedding there it was paradise we took our 2 children and 15 family members we stayed in the nizuc side it was absolutly wonderful the rooms were pool view which many of the rooms are either pool view or ocean view when we arrived we was greeted with champaine and cold clothes after our long flights the rooms was beautiful with jucuzzis as standard, the wedding coordanater was really helpfull and anything you want at the wedding she will get within reason, (carolina) the place is so big you had to travel to the other parts of the hotel in golf buggys( the kids loved it) or lobby bus. we went up to the sunrise side what was equaly nice but more hussle and bussle alot of americans was on that side(very nice people) the beach was fantastic 24 hour room service so when coming in from sen frogs (a club you really need to go in if going to mexico in in cancun and cost 18 dollors 1 way and the taxi waits outside for you ( personal taxi) ) room service is a phone call and eat anything you want (also reccomend coco bongos, pat obrians,) a bus from the hotel takes you to them at 10 everynight but remember to buy a band 40 dollors when you get in there as your drinks are included all night). there is a night club on the complex but it is mexican music, jungle bar is great with a kareoke night and casino night, restraunts are all great but dont reccomend the chinese. the waiters are great people and cannot do enough for you when sat at the pool there is constant drinks and food being brought round to you( please spare 1 or 2 dollors for then as they run about like headless chickens and a lot of people take them for granted(orrr) the kids club is great for the kids. strongly advise the jungle tour on speed boats then snorkaling its like something off james bond its fab, and the water sports are right at the beach when you come off the pool i was addicted to the jet skis. (all non motorised sports are free so do do them as they are great for the kids.

 

my wedding ..... we it was magical from getting up in the morning carolina was phoning the room aand champaine and strawberrys was sent whilst we was getting dressed to my room and the grooms for all the party, the horse and carrage was stunning, pictures were done special, and the dvd was like a movie well worth the money, and the wedding was the best day of my life if i could do it a gain i would do it there all over again thy made you feel really special, whilst we was there the mexican president was staying there ( if it good enough for him it was good enough for me) the spa treatments was really nice ( recomend going to the golf restrants it was amazing)booked again for next august carnt wait...........................(to be continued) haha

We stayed at Moon Palace in April, and I think it would be a great place for a wedding. The gazebos where they have the ceremonies are overlooking the beach, so you have the beach in the background without needing to be directly on the beach (better, in my opinion, but not what everyone is looking for, obviously). The horse drawn carriages were very cool! I've looked at pictures of where the ceremony is held at other resorts, and I think none of them look as good as Moon Palace.

 

The drawback to MP is that it's a ways away from downtown Cancun, so it's more inconvenient to do things outside the resort. We really liked it, though - I would definitely go back.

 

And yes, we really do appreciate you posting all this information! Keep up the good work!

Thanks for the review! I'm getting married there on March 3, 2007. Does anyone know how long of a ride it is to get downtown from the resort? It's always reassuring to hear a positive review of the resort and wedding.

i stayed at another place just south of the moon palace last year and our shuttle stopped there. it looked pretty cool from the outside. however, i would say that about all of the riviera maya...it is a major excursion to get into town. pretty tough to do a night out, but it sure is relaxing there!

These reviews are great Jackie. Even though I'm not getting married there, I like to know of other places I want to visit someday. My FI and I love Mexico and will probably go every year.
