Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort

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.

We love the Moon Palace having got married there two years ago. We returned at the start of October with some friends and our children. Initilially we were all allocated room in the sombrero... Read more section of the sunrise however this was right on the boundary of the hotel grounds and was very isolated. We upgraded to a family room at the cost of £1400 which saw us given a more central location. There has clearly been a lot of money spent on the hotel so it looks even more fabulous than before. The service is excellent especially Conception and Pablo serving drinks poolside next to the swing bar. Jesus also deserves a mention for the cheery way he greated everyone each morning as he cooked omelettes in the sunrise buffet . Over the course of the two weeks we ate in most of the restaurants and have no complaints regarding the food. During the first week the restaurants were a little busier at times due to a conference being held. A lot of the MP money has been spent on their conference facilities and I fear this may be to the detriment of holiday makers. During our second week another conference of 1700 Tupperware ladies from across Mexico descended and this resulted in restaurants being packed to capacity. We got turned away from several restaurants for breakfast and lunchtimes were a nightmare despite attempting to time it around their lunch. The final straw came one night in the sunrise lobby when the Tupperware group completely took over. Their behaviour was completely out of hand and not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel at all. There was no seating left, the noise was unbearable and that was the only night that the service was poor as the conference goers were clearly given preferential service. Management wandered about and did nothing. On getting turned away from restaurants the following morning as they were full of Tupperware ladies we decided to complain to management, something we have never done before. They took our complaint onboard and stated that the conventions are very important to them and provide a high revenue for the hotel . We suggested that perhaps a single restaurant could be set aside for their meal times and they said perhaps this was something they could look into. Lots of people were complaining via social media about the Tupperware ladies however I don't know if it will have any impact unless people complain directly to management. The MP is an amazing hotel and the staff are fantastic . We had day trips to the Beach Palace and Playa Car Palace and they aren't a patch on MP. I would go back on the provisal that there was no large conference being held as £7000 is too much to spend on a holiday to have aspects of it spoiled by people who are being paid to be there through their work.

Being a single traveler I was knocked back by the single person supliment however, upon arrival I was treated with the same degree of attention as couples and families (a very welcome surprise). The... Read more staff throughout all three hotels were exceptional, friendly and more than willing to help. The food was brilliant. Anyone worrying about their weight beware, there is such a wide choise it is difficult to refuse to go around again, firsts, seconds and thirds. My son's wedding was very well organized, relaxed and on the beach. It was perfect. Moon Palace Grand, deffinately worth every penny I paid and access to the rest of the resort just added to the experience. I will deffinately be going there again during my next leave period.

Read more boys, all the staff in the Caribbean restaurant and the list would be endless if I carried on everyone is so helpful, so we can only say try it for yourself you will not be disappointed. There is so much to do while you stay there that I am sure you would want to go back again and again. Also the food and drink is simply the best you would find anywhere and all served with excellent staff. Read less

Moon Palace's golf course is beautiful, customer service is good, employees are very polite and are all very nice, except for when we ordered room service and they forgot some stuff, the room lay out... Read more is ok..this depends on your taste. Talking about taste, they have terrible food! Sad to say but this is the first time I've been to Cancun and is so unhappy with the food, even the Mexican food here is bad...c'mon, how can you do wrong with Mexican food?, it's Mexico! It could be because of the high volume.!. So, if you're look for good food, do not stay here. Read less
