Part resort, part entertainment complex, this 123-acre retreat is set on a glorious white-sand beach.
It’s lively, it has plenty of facilities for all ages and it has a wide sandy beach and warm, inviting waters – this is a Mexican all-inclusive, all-encompassing resort that’s got it all. There’s a 27-hole Jack Nicklaus designed golf course, a sizeable spa as well as a FlowRider surf simulator, teen lounge and impressive kids’ club, the facilities will keep guests of all ages entertained. Oversized swimming pools are located throughout the resort’s grounds, and restaurants and bars can be found around every corner.
The resort has been divided into three different sections – Sunrise, Nizuc and the new ‘hotel within a hotel’ Grand at Moon Palace – each with its own ambience, restaurants, bars, amenities and accommodation styles. You’ll be able to use the facilities in the the main resort (the Sunrise and Nizuc sections) free of charge, while if you wish to spend the day at the Grand section you can purchase a full or half day pass (from 01 Nov 2017). Facilities at this state-of-the-art section of the resort include a further nine pools, a theatre and kids water adventure area.
Drinking and dining is an experience in itself and the variety is impressive. Take a culinary tour of the world at a variety of buffet and à la carte restaurants which include the Brazilian eatery Arrecifes and the Italian à la carte restaurant La Trattoria.
The rooms we have chosen to feature, such as the Deluxe Resortview Rooms, are are located in the Nizuc section. For those travelling with children, the Family Deluxe Rooms are the ideal choice. Consisting of two interconnecting Superior Gardenview Rooms the room also features an Xbox 360 and DVD player with games on request as well as a special kids’ room service menu and L’Oreal Kids bath products.
