Overview

Resort offers lots of amenities, including a golf course, a spa and 15 restaurants
Ocean views are not provided in standard accommodations

Golfers rejoice: the all-inclusive Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort boasts one of Cancun's two Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, so you can traverse all 27 holes during your stay. But that's not to say that Moon Palace's only asset is its links. Its 39-room spa beckons to weary travelers, offering deep tissue massages and therapeutic body scrubs. At night, head down to NOIR nightclub, dine at one of 15 restaurants or catch a show in the Amphitheatre. Young visitors can join in on the fun with the dolphin swim program, the game-filled Wired teen lounge or the supervised Playroom, which offers multiple themed rooms and playgrounds for kids of all interests to enjoy. When the day is over, hunker down in a guest room or suite appointed with a double whirlpool tub, Wi-Fi access, 24-hour room service and an LCD satellite TV. Past guests advise booking a room closer to the lobby on the second or third floor for the best ocean views.
