Preparing for upcoming trip and on side will do some freelancing writing. Will get facts on some harsh reviews we all see. Don’t normally write but excited to see beautiful vacation oasis and experience first hand. Booking is all set for family of four with one of the US’s best travel company. Looking forward to deluxe ocean view room with two beds and trying to get dinner reservations. First fact : got some misleading information on when and how to book dinner reservations. Anybody has recent experience?

This was our second time staying at Moon Palace Sunrise. We had a great time. We participated in many of the resort activities, put on by the entertainment team (shout out to Paola, Alex and Mario for being awesome). They have exercise classes, games and live music at the activity pool at the center of the resort. My son had a great time at the FlowRider learning to surf, the instructors there were fantastic, especially Caesar. The food and drinks are wonderful. We also loved all the restaurants. Our favorite was Los Corporalas (Authentic Mexican) and Momo (Asian). The buffet Bugambilias was also wonderful for breakfast and lunch. The staff is always eager to please, we had amazing waiters, Jhonny, Adrian V, Juventino and Diego went out of their way to make our meal time lovely. Jesus makes the best omelettes for breakfast and he does so with a smile! Overall the staff went out of their way to serve and make our time at the Palace so wonderful. We will go back for sure.

I would not recommend. We had heard and read great things about this resort, however our experience was poor. Please read if you're interested in all things that went wrong. The day we got there we sat for about 2 hours to check in. It then took another 2 hours to get our rooms assigned. I've never been a resort that required so much waiting. Buffet food: on the website they advertise the resort to be vegetarian and vegan friendly, the number one reason to why we booked the resort. It promised to accommodate our dietary restrictions. We get there and although on the menu they never served the vegan options. They always said come back tomorrow, we’ll have it then. We went back the next day and they told us the same thing. Restaurants: We were told that we could download the palace resorts app to make reservations to the various restaurants they offered at both Nizuc and Sunrise, however every time we checked either it asked us to check in another time or it showed that there were seats open but it would not allow us to book it. We got so annoyed that we ended up taking our chance and walking into Agra at Sunrise and asked a staff member if they could help us reserve a spot. The staff member at Agra was amazing and attempted to help us and even informed us that dialing the operator to ask for restaurant reservations may be quicker. Wish we had known about this earlier. Our whole stay we weren’t able to dine in at any reservation based restaurant. Coconuts: we found out by asking guests at the hotel that there were free coconuts towards the Grand entrance. We then confirmed it with a nizuc employee. We walked all the way there and they denied us coconuts by saying they were all out. Two minutes later we witnessed them handing out coconuts to all those that were in line. Still don’t understand this. Covid testing: waited 1.5 hours in line to book an appointment for covid swabs. Once we got the appointment the process was easy. Just frustrating that we had to spend two hours of our vacation time trying to book an appointment, they also don’t swab on sundays and no one told us this until we went to book. The lack of communication and the resort being so unorganized made this vacation more stressful than relaxing. I'd like to think that maybe because of covid they were so disorganized but its been over a year for them to figure it out.It was not all terrible, we made it work and had fun but it definitely would have been better if it wasn't so stressful. Find another resort, don’t waste your time here.

This was our third time at the palace resorts. We went to celebrate our son’s graduation, my birthday, and 10th year wedding anniversary. I must say, at first we had some difficulty as we were changed from Sunrise to Nizuc without noticed. I was very unhappy about that. We did feel the resort was overbooked and understaffed and it showed in our experience. We often needed to call to get our room cleaned amongst other things. However, the staff at Moon Palace went above and beyond to make sure we our requests were honored and that we had a great time. To say that although most likely stressed, most of the staff at Moon Palace are pleasant, welcoming and kind is an understatement. Special shout-out to Mr. Chrystian Romero, Ms. Mayra, Mr. Juan from Arrecifes and Jorge from Manglar/Arrecifes for going above and beyond for our family. Hopefully, if/when we decide to return, the resort will be fully staffed.
