    I used resort credits for the spa - we got a couples massage for $28 total! You can only use up to a maximum amount at the spa - we had $1500 credits per couple, and you could use up to $300 at the spa. You pay tax in cash on any credits you use (and tip if you want) and thats it. 

    You cannot use credits to golf at the course next door - you can only use the credits at Moon Palace to golf. You can take transportation there, it is about 50 mins away, a few of our guests did that.

    We also used credits on a trip to tulum and to upgrade wine at dinner.

     

    ok thanks so much :)

      I cannot believe how much they want for bouquets it is abs ridiculous!!! So I said I might get them outside the resort and she tried to tell me I'll get a fee???? If I pick them up then there should def not be a fee right?

      Hey,

       

      If you pick it up there won't be a fee, I actually used an outside florist because their flowers prices were so high at the resort. I forced them to let my florist in with no fee to set everything up. I did buy a lot of other decor through Zuniga and had 50 guests staying at the resort, so I used that as my bargaining tactic to let me use the florist at no charge. I used an outside DJ and paid a $300 "electrical fee", but it still made the DJ $600 cheaper even with that fee than what the resort DJ was charging.

        I also used an outside florist and paid no fee!  Esp if you just drop at the lobby, they will definitely not charge you (and mine did some set up but I pointed out that they shouldn't charge ME for having my florist help THEM with setup).  Loved my flowers, and they were under 2k for everything (alter setup, centerpieces, chair flowers, bouquest/bouts/corsages, etc.).  I think I paid less than half what the resort was charging!

          here's a few from our rehearsal: http://www.brandonmo...hearsal-dinner/

           

          you can see the beach deck, plus we did strings of lights for the setup (from zuniga).  otherwise we just did a few tea lights and maracas (bought downtown for about $50 for everything).

          Hey Rachel! Absolutely, I will send you an email right now. Sorry for the delay in my reply, we were travelling for the last few weeks!


          Are you interested in an affordable decor rental in the Mayan Riviera, Mexico? Send me a message! Most of the items I have are a rustic, vintage style.
