The Moon Palace is a nice place to stay. It is a little further from the strip then some of the other palace resorts. The beach is nice it may be a little calmer then staying up on the strip the rooms are nice staff is great, pool is huge, and of course food is good. But if you are looking to be further up on the strip the Cancun Palace is a great place to stay where you can always go to the Moon Palace for the day or any other palace resorts and use all there facilities for free.

I agree with previous post. If you want a nice beach, stay at the Cancun Palace. Moon Palace does not have a great beach although water is calmer....it tends to be dirty also. Moon Palace is not in the hotel zone....it's south of the airport. I don't know if that's a good thing or bad thing for you. If you want to be in the midst of everything Cancun has to offer, it's best to be in the hotel zone. All depends on what you're looking for in a vacation and how much you want to spend in transportation.

The Moon Palace is not on the "strip" it is in the Riviera Maya it is the closest or first Hotel south of Cancun on the Highway but it is not in the Hotel Zone.

I have to note that one comment above is not applicable to your trip - one person sugested staying at the Cancun Palace. Your trip is scheduled for September 20 and the Cancun Palace is not scheduled to reopen until December 20 (if then).

I'd suggest you search Moon Palace on here for reviews of people returning from that resort. I have read that the Moon Palace does offer a free shuttle to Cancun daily for shopping/dinner.

Good luck!
