Hello everyone,


Looking for a little info and advise.


Could someone tell me what the main differences are between the Moon Palace and the Beach Palace.  Are these both located in the same resort, are they different hotels?


Also, could someone please tell me what their beaches are like?  A good beach is a make or break for me.  I love the beach so I really would love a good beach.  I've read some comments that the beach is not very good and I'm a little concerned.


Thanks in advance :)

@jenjennyjenTwo different resorts. I've actually been to both :)

Beach Palace is a smaller sized resort and it's right in the heart of Cancun - the beach there is gorgeous and definitely something to consider if you are looking for a nice beach.


Moon Palace is in Mayan and it's situated on a cove so if you are looking for white sands, no seaweed and clear water it's not the best for that. My only complaint with this resort is that the beach wasn't very nice (water wasn't very swimmable) and it's a VERY large resort. It's a gorgeous resort though.. they both are.


Check out trip advisor and maybe just have a look through the reviews and photos :)

@@Jenjennyjen I went to Moon Palace in December, but chose Beach Palace for my wedding! Moon Palace was awesome and we absolutely loved it. It's huge and has several good restaurants, a golf course, dolphin swim, putt putt golf, three pools, a night club... a lot of amenities! However, I chose Beach Palace for my wedding because it is a lot smaller, so I thought it would be a little more intimate/easier for guests to find each other and get to know each other. Plus, it has a better beach. (Although the beach at Moon Palace wasn't terrible... we still enjoyed it!) Both resorts are great - I think it just depends on what you are looking for in your wedding resort.  Let me know if you have any questions. I spent A LOT of time on trip advisor and looking through the threads on this website before making my decision. :)

@Jenjennyjen  Welcome to BDW! As you can see from previous comments, you've come to the right place for information!


The best advice I would give, other than the comments you'll get from the ladies here, is to talk to a travel agent! Both Moon Palace and Beach Palace are popular wedding resorts, but they each have their own features that may or may not appeal to your particular group. You also need to consider your budget and your must haves and have nots, as you mentioned - a nice beach. A travel agent will be able to review what you want and don't want with you as well as your group price point and may even suggest another resort that better suits your needs! You could always contact the administrators of this site, Wright Travel. They're destination wedding specialists and could definitely provide you with information to help you make the best choice for you and your group.


Good luck and happy planning!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
