Happy Planning!

    Shan in our opinion it is not!

     

    The resort is comparable to Moon in the following areas:

    -Number of Pools

    -Number of Places to eat

    -Service

    -Spending of the resort credits.

    -Cars/carts to get around

     

    The resort falls short to Moon Palace in:

    -Activities to do on the resort (they are suppose to get jet skiing, para-sailing and a few other things in a year to two).  The horses are so tiny that if your husband/friends weighs more than 180 pounds you can't ride them. 

    -Life at the Pool, they had 1 band and music playing at the "main pool", and it was still dead. However; they did not have anything and I do mean anything else going on.  Moon Palace had activities, food, etc... going on all the time at each pool area. 

    -Although they had a number of restaurants (most of which is in the main building), the food wasn't that great.  Many people that we met were talking about this.

    -Although we did not witness any weddings, the set-up on the beach wasn't that great.  But the deck was about the best place but again that's in the main building.

     

    The resort beats Moon Palace in the following:

    -Room Decor

     

    -Beach is by far better than moon palace!

     

     

    The addition of the casino was great for those who gamble but you won't find anyone there during the day.  The club Oro (located in the casino) was dead even at 12am.  While the decor was nice, it was very cold in there and you have to buy your drinks.  LOL  those that stay on the resort get in free but other people come to the resort for the club so they charge a cover for them.  But everyone has to buy drinks LOL.  What a joke.

      Well thank you for your honest opinion!! Sounds like we will not be going there any time soon!  That night club sounds like a joke- i can't believe you have to pay for drinks!!

       

      I think we may be going back to Moon Palace for our one year anniversary! :)

          For the cost, it was so disappointing (besides the spa).  Moon Palace will always be OUR special place and we plan to go back.
