Resort offers lots of amenities, including a golf course, a spa and 14 restaurants
Standard accommodations do not have ocean views
Golfers rejoice: The all-inclusive Moon Palace Cancun boasts one of Cancun, Mexico'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 36-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 14 restaurants or catch a show in the amphitheater. Young visitors can join in on the fun with the Flowrider, the game-filled Wired teen lounge or the supervised Playroom, which offers multiple themed rooms and playgrounds for kids ages 4 to 10 or 12 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 a flat-screen TV. Past guests suggest booking a room closer to the lobby on the second or third floor for the best ocean views.
