Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort

1 of 12 photos
prev 1 of 1 videos next

Recently refurbished, it really is a palace, and a spectacular one at that. Lying on Cancun’s tranquil south shore, nestled between a long, white sand beach and 55 acres of tropical foliage. A 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course is available for a memorable round of golf. Rooms are very elegant, in fact all have double Jacuzzi baths! You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to your dining options with 13 restaurants to choose from. There are incredible floor shows every evening, with the disco picking up the beat until the early hours.

Where is it?

On a huge, wonderful beach. Transfer time from airport: 10 min.

One of the best all inclusive hotels that I have ever stayed in. The staff were courteous and helpful at all times and very well trained, the facilities were excellent and the food was, generally... Read more , superb. The Moon Palace has 14 restaurants, each offering a different menu and we did our best to try them all, we did not have a bad meal in any of them. The range of foods on offer in each of the restaurants was extensive and always freshly prepared. Not only were the staff very helpful but they seemed to be very happy to work at the Moon Palace. The range of activities on offer was impressive and access to information was very good. I have never seen such a range of swimming pools in one resort, all clean, well regulated and looked after. Our rooms were spacious and well supplied with many thoughtful touches, such as chocolates on our pillows each, left by the maid who came to turn the beds down. The hot tubs ad balconies were a real bonus. Can't wait to go back. Read less

We just returned from our stay at the Moon Palace (Nizuc) 10/14/14-10/21/14. This was our second trip back to the Moon Palace and we only had to be there a few moments to be reminded why we chose to... Read more become members. There is no downside to staying here. The food is great, the grounds and facilitys are clean and the staff is second to none. And just to be clear the staff at this resort could not be more pleasent, helpfull, and kind. Jorge Baas and Hecner Martinez made the begining of each day a delight at breakfast and occasionally lunch. After that we sat poolside where Miguel Matinez (I hope I have his last name correct) went out of his way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. My kids love him and were sad when we left because they said they were going to miss him so much. He is a class act. Cant wait to see everyone again in March. Thanks for the great memories, The Grahams Read less

Got back fro Moon Palace 22/10/14 and have to say had another great time at a palace resort. The hol was to celebrate my 50th which we did in style. Service at Moon Place Grand was excellent with... Read more special thanks to all the staff in breakfast restaurant including manager Sergio, hostess Adriana Ariana, waiters Yvan, Janet, Luis F and Roberto. Special thanks also to the animation team at the Grand who also could not be faulted, Alfredo, Enrique and Greta looked after us and nothing was ever a problem. The service at the pool was also exceptional, pool barman Luis brilliant and waiter Luis Adalberto Huchim Ku also brilliant. Thanks again for a great stay! Read less

The hotel is one of the best I ever visited, fantastic areas, very fancy restaurants, hotel workers are available for you all the time, incredible pool areas, spa facility is terrific... Read more !, we like to plan all in advance, we separated some extra attractions (romantic dinner on the beach, spa for couples, and others I do not remember now) through the travel agency by the use of the CREDITS offered by the hotel. What a surprise when we checked out and got this bill with lot of TAX for using these f&%#*+ credits. If you are planning to go to this fantastic hotel, do not separate any extra plan in advance; please! as soon as you get there, check the whole hotel areas, there is no need for extra attractions due to the hotel has EVERYTHING!......and if you want to redeem your "credits" you will be stunned finding out the amount of money for taxes you would pay! Conclusion: Enjoy the hotel and all the fantastic areas inside it, BUT don´t even try tu use the "credits".........are a completely FAKE! Read less

Read more for a better room, clean and spacious. good restaurants and bars pools areas clean and service second to none (swing bar the best) plenty to occupy our two 9 year old grandchildren we loved sitting in the sunrise lounge in the evenings (with our cocktails of course) listening to some relaxing music and watching people coming and going. would recommend anybody who is thinking of marrying abroad look at moon palace. ps. oh by the way thank you alfredo in the spa, I didnt look the same person after you brought my wild and untamed hair under control, everyone made a comment. thanks again.
