A December 2003 trip
to Cancun by LOVEVACATIONS
Quote: Cancun at an all-inclusive resort--Moon Palace.
Hotel | "Palace Resort at Moon Palace"
Food - OK - mostly buffet - always fish, hamburger, pizza, chicken for lunch, great breakfast buffet - go to both a la carte's - Oriental and Spanish - collar shirt, enclosed shoes and long pants for guys at the a la carte
Drinks - weak - just ask for extra liquor - mimosa and bloody Marys by Sunrise pool every morning
Beach - nice sandy area - seaweed in water - not the pretty color of hotel zone
Grounds - very large resort - beautifully maintained grounds - smelly in parts of Nizuc section - few stray cats - shy but cute
Many activities poolside at Sunrise - Look for dinner shows and children's activities on sign by Sunrise gym - did not attend so can't comment on any of them

Poolside activities for Sunrise Pool are listed in the activity area – it’s best to try to listen to announcements around 9am in the morning. They had a sand castle contest one day for kids and other regular activities like pool volleyball, aerobics in the pool, and things like that. For rainy day activities, check the sign in Sunrise lobby outside the gym room -- they usually have movies every day in one of the ballrooms.
We didn't attend any dinner shows. They usually have a buffet and the show starts about 8pm – they are always listed on a few signs in the lobbies.
Both lobbies were very nicely decorated for Christmas and both Sunrise and Nizuc had big dinners. On Christmas Eve, we attended a buffet on the Nizuc side that was very nice – we had turkey and gravy.
