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.

February 2016 - My wife and I have stayed in 6 different resorts on the Yucatan Peninsula over the last several years. Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort is by far and away the best ever and we have... Read more already decided to return next year. Our ocean front room (or the Marble Suite, as we called it) was impeccably maintained ever day by our wonderful maid. The courtesy in-room mini bar was restocked every day - not that it had to be. We were in easy walking distance to the pool, main building and all restaurants and had easy access to the SunRise and Grand facilities as well. The service and attention to customer needs was awesome. Special BRAVOS go out to the following Amigos serving in the buffet - they were so good we just couldn't go to many other restaurants. Juan Hernandez, Luis Carrea, Enrique Dzib, Armando, Rafael Espaiza, Eften be Pech and our Hostess Mariana. Their eagerness to please, quickness to service (never had an empty wine glass), their joviality and obvious passion for what they do, we have never experienced anything close to it in all of our years of travelling to Mexico. The Brazilian style restaurant is a real experience and some the best food we have experienced. The pools, although not really warm yet (radiant heat only) were massive, spotless and well tended by the bar guys - especially Carlos and Luis. The golf course is to die for!! Marvelous condition and a real nice challenge. Great staff here too. Shows every nite at pool side theatre if no rain-outs. Watched Super Bowl in the neatest PUB. Magnificent gardens throughout the facility are looked after daily but you never see the staff doing the work. THE BEACH - beautifully maintained every day. Not a spec of seaweed to be found so nothing but deep, white, soft sand. Unfortunately, I did find need to try out their in-house medical facilities. They have at least one doctor on staff at all times, so when I fell and sliced open my arm (19 stitches) I was in the very capable hands of Drs Bucio and Guillen. Was stitched up and they even followed up at least twice a day to make sure all was well. A beautiful décor throughout the lobby and lobby bar and the staff serving you all make ones visit feel very special. My wife sends kudos to Luis and his very special Mudslides. 15 minutes from the airport by supplied shuttle is also a great feature. All in all, Moon Palace Resort gets our highest recommendation. Location, facilities, amenities and of course, the wonderful, engaging staff that offered us unprecedented service, these are just some of the things that will bring us back to Moon Palace next year and probably many more Glenn A Read less

We have just returned from our 4th visit to the moon palace with our friends and their kids. It really surprises me to see the bad reviews some people post because it has always been amazing for us... Read more . The service is the best I have ever received there is so much to do that you do not feel the need to leave the resort. Anything you want just ask and you will get it. Although the service is great with everyone there are some staff that went above and beyond thanks to Carla, Antonio, Fermin the entertainment staff at the sunrise pool they made so much fun for our kids. Andrian Canul sunrise lobby bar. Norma,Paulina,Alejandra Urbina, Jose migocluto, logos, Elvir Romeo, Esperanza,rocio at the pools at the sunrise. Paulino at the nizuc pool Carlos at the nizu restaurant. Cristina,Areli, Ana, Paola at the nizuc playroom. Arturo from the sunrise pool concierge always asking if we needed anything. As far as the time share we have never been harassed in all the times we have been there we just say no and that is it. Can't wait to go back next year it is going to be even better when the grand is finished. Thanks to Jose for making our room requests happen. Read less

This resort is awesome! There are 3 resorts in one, and each guest receives resort credits to use at the resort for spa services, golf, tours and gift shop purchases. Loved everything about this... Read more resort! The rooms were amazing, we stayed in the Nizuc section, the most comfortable beds and pillows and with a awesome view of the ocean! Every restaurant we went to we enjoyed immensely! Our favourites were the Italian at the Golf Course and the Steakhouse in Sunrise, plus we would go to the golfcourse for breakfast in the Riviera Maya, loved it instead of the buffet breakfast as you could order off the menu!! We loved the spa services we received, the water hydrotherapy is a must before your spa treatment! My husband played golf and loved it! This resort had the best customer service that we have ever experienced in a resort! They made our stay that much more enjoyable! We had purchased our trip through a Palace Member and had extra VIP privileges with our black band! Loved it so much we purchased a membership! We travelled to Playacar and Sun Palace for the day to experience the other resorts, and with the black band we received free shuttle bus to and back! Can't wait to visit the new Palace Resort in Jamaica! Read less
