I believe there are 6 a la carte restaurants~ 2 in Sunrise ( Palapa Barracuda & Momonohana), 1 in Nizuc (Los Caporales), 1 in the Grand section (El Caribeno) and 2 at the golf course (La Trattoria and Bambu). You need to make reservations at the golf course restaurant to get in (I hear).
Reservation required: To ensure a truly elegant atmosphere, please adhere to our smart-casual dress code of long pants or tailored, collared short or polo shirt.
At Moon Palace Cancun , all-inclusive means: signature amenities, luxurious accommodations, 24-hour room service, gourmet dining, top-shelf drinks, free Wi-Fi, in-room whirlpool tubs, unlimited phone calls, state-of-the-art playrooms for kids, multiple pools, world-class entertainment, unparalleled service and much more
Actually, Moon Palace is probably the safest place in the Riviera Maya region. Moon Palace is completely isolated from the rest of Cancun . Check Google Maps. It is about a 15 minute drive from the Hotel Zone (and the temporarily crime ridden downtown area).
Beach . The Moon Palace property sits along the beach . This resort has no beach , but there is a lovely dock area where you can swim and snorkeling is close by. If you prefer to head into Cancun , the Sun Palace and Beach Palace are also available for use and both have great beaches .
Please note that at The Grand at Moon Palace Cancun all our team members are always committed and happy on making you feel welcome, comfortable and pampered at all times. Also, please be informed that while gratuities are included with your stay, you may choose to provide additional tip at your convenience.
The Grand is being marketed as a separate resort but is still part of the same complex. It has a water park (with big slides) and other amenities. From what I have read the rooms are also slightly larger than those in the Moon Palace (which consists of two sections: Sunrise and Nizuc).
As far as which resort has a better beach for swimming, Beach Palace wins that battle. It’s located on one of the best beaches around and offers nice waves and soft sand for walking or lounging. Family Activities Winner: Moon Palace Cancun for the wide variety of pools, slides and activities.
Both are absolutely lovely resorts. At the Grand , you do get better food, better quality alcohol, and a little more personal attention. Also, the Grand property is new, the rooms are a little bit bigger, the facility is nicer, and there are more swimming pools. The Grand did not feel crowded at all.
I like the Nizuc side the best. The Sunrise is more active and more crowded. The lobby is to too formal and there is no easy way to get from point “A” to point “B” around that pool, restaurant and lobby area.
10 Travel Mistakes to Avoid in Cancun Exchanging money at the airport. Choosing your hotel by price alone. Taking a taxi at the airport. Buying everything at the listed price. Drinking water from the faucet. Booking tours from stand-alone tour guides. Visiting during Spring Break. Only packing beachwear.
Guests who are staying at Sunrise, Nizuc and the Golf Villas, or any other Palace Resorts property, can purchase Grand passes to access The Grand at Moon Palace . The cost for the Grand passes is $99usd for adults and $50usd for kids.
