Reno, Nevada1 contribution
We had a wonderful stay at Moon Palace! Plenty of amazing, unique restaurants to choose from and lots of fun activities and entertainment. Breakfast at Habibi was delicious and entertaining with the Turkish coffee. The Awe Spa did not disappoint, massage was wonderful along with the hydrotherapy. Activities at the Nizuc pool with Nico, the Zensei Yoga was by far a highlight! The instructor was amazing, along with the live yoga music and incredible breakfast/snack spread afterwards by the chef was the most delicious and beautiful food we had! I definitely hope this becomes a permanent staple as it’s top on my to-do list when we return!

Hotel's Favorite
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.

We visited moon palace for a 2 week family holiday , it was unbelievable from start to finish , spotless , all the staff work so hard and are so polite 24/7 , nothing is ever to much . All the entertainment and staff were fantastic Rooms cleaned daily , fresh towels and fridge stocked daily . The staff at the restaurant Manglar especially Hechner Martinez , Humberto ladered , mayoli Guzman and the guy who makes the best eggs who’s name I can’t remember are a credit to the moon place always smiling and helpful . The only thing disappointing is we had to return home 🙈 We will be returning next year for sure .

The University of Cincinnati healthcare team and Palace Foundation just wrapped up a week of clinics for Palace Resort staff and families. During our busy volunteer week, three staff members of Moon Palace Sunrise stood out as critical to logistics for a successful and smooth operating clinic. Christopher- public Relations MPSunrise provided logistics for scheduling group covid testing as well as day to day questions DC Leo- Diamond Concierge MP Sunrise served as translator for the community clinic and secured the return of lost passport following Palace protocol Omar- Mgr at Agra Restaurant MPSunrise worked to set up group dinner reservations It was our pleasure to assist Palace Foundation with their health clinic. Your staff were very accommodating. Your Moon Palace Sunrise resort was gorgeous and we felt safe with covid protocols clearly in place. Thank you!

The moon palace overcharged us almost $3,800.00 for the third room and extra two people that did not have and use. We booked it through Expedia 2 rooms for my husband and I and our two daughters last December. Upon checking in, we received different rooms and we have requested to switch the right ones, after a whole evening of bad experience and our daughter had spend a night at the hospital, she almost died from allergic reaction and we have filled out long list of questions about allergies at their system, Moon Palace moved us from Sunrise to Nizuc at 1 am at night. We had 2 rooms. Upon returning home, we have received and extra charge for the third room. As right now they still did not returned our money neither we have been able to talk to anyone at the resort.

Gorgeous grounds, wonderful staff, amazing food! Couldn’t find anything to complain about. Must try the Indian restaurant and hibachi. Both were my favorite restaurants. Aaron at the the steak restaurant at Sunrise was a top notch waiter. We stayed at Sunrise.

Firstly, take the negative reviews with a pinch of salt ! People need to stop being so negative and privileged ! This hotel and its staff are amazing ! I was really worried about coming here after reading some reviews, and was led to believe that The Grand was was superior than Sunrise and Nizuc. Which ever building you stay in, I assure you, you will be well looked after and enjoy it. Came here from uk with family to celebrate brothers wedding - it was amazing. This place is a wedding factory and I understand why. Such beautiful surroundings. We stayed in the Sunrise, most of my family in the Nizuc. I’m my opinion, I preferred sunrise. But both have their pros and small cons. This hotel is vast and spreads over a large area - we did lots of walking between Nizuc and sunrise, they do have a very good golf cart service - they are everywhere and take you all over - kids love to take rides on them. We have never been “room service” people - but the service here has spoilt us ! We had breakfast all but 1 morning. Ordered on the app, always delivered by the time we were properly up and ready. We found the quality of the breakfast better from room service than the buffet. We managed to get into most of the restaurants - Agra Indian being our favourite. Every single member of staff we encountered here were so helpful and friendly. Beds are so comfy. Grounds well manicured. Waiters by Nizuc pool were my fave, and work so hard. I needed antibiotics whilst here, we managed to find a local chemist who delivered to hotel for a very small fee (cheaper than taxi ride there) we arranged to meet the driver in reception at 4pm. Husband popped back to room before heading to lobby - bang on 4pm knock at the door, a member of staff hand delivered them to our room - thank you. I could go on and on about certain members of staff going one step further than expected. Was annoyed to here a couple on plane complaining “service not the same as it was a few years ago” what’s the matter with people ?!?! Few tips - bring childrens inflatables and snacks as quite expensive in hotel shop. We all burnt so easily here (not our first trip to Mexico) I think the sea breeze disguised the burn until it was too late ! Sun cream also expensive here. My 8 year old loved the Wired Lounge - free arcade games, football table, basket ball games etc. The cafe does amazing ice creams and cakes - the coconut truffles are delicious. The beach is beautiful, the sea is like dirty dish water - which we already knew about. It’s nature, not hotels fault, they do all they can to clear the seaweed. But it’s like fighting a losing battle. Tip the staff, they work hard and really appreciate it. It’s annoying when you’ve paid thousands for all inclusive, then feel the need to tip whilst your here, but they deserve it they really do. Avoid the timeshare/sales people in the lobby’s, they get a bit full on - but just a polite “no” is all you need to do. Thanks moon palace !!!!

Alejandro was the sweetest waiter. I was at the moon palace for 5 days and he remembered me through my visits. How can someone remember someone when they tend to so many people say in and day out!! Appreciate the welcome at the restaurant!

some of the best service ever experienced for the very reasonable ALL inclusive price. So many food choices with good flavors. So many different daily pool options and the fun is everywhere! VERY safe location with resort sponsored sightseeing and Mexican history if you want to leave.
