We will be back soon – Moon Palace Mar 2013
We recently spent a wonderful week at the Moon Palace Grand (Mar 6th 2013). We were part of a Facebook group trip with members from the Forum for Palace Resorts Members & Friends. There were forty of us and we all had such a wonderful time that planning is in the works for another trip next year.
The Moon is divided into 3 distinctive sections, Sunrise, Nizuc and Grand. Sunrise has more activities with the Noir nightclub and Sky Bar while Nizuc is somewhat quieter, Grand is quite quiet and relaxing. The Grand suites are larger and do not have an ocean view except for Presidential suites. The open lobby at the Grand has a different Happy Hour every night with Martini, Tequila, Shot tasting to name a few. There are three different pool areas (one heated) to enjoy. The grounds offer beautiful landscaping.
There is a wonderful Restaurant, El Caribeno, with the Open Lounge bar on the roof where we enjoyed most evenings tended by Vincente and Juana Isabel who really took good care of us. One evening our group also enjoyed a cocktail reception then dinner with excellent service. Edgar and Domingo looked after every detail during our Romantic dinner with the steak and shrimp cooked to perfection. We were also privileged to enjoy a special dinner with wine pairing prepared for us by Dario – Chef, Jorge Diaz – Captain, Xavier – Sommelier and two waiters, Roberto and Angel. It was truly memorable.
We enjoyed wonderful tacos at Los Tacos, one of their pool areas. It is a very relaxing area with cabanas to stretch out on and Claudia to serve you. Dinner at Los Caporales Mexican restaurant was divine and did not disappoint.
Our special lunch at the Nizuc Palapa Delfines poolside grill was taken care of by Food Manager Ana Mejia who is just wonderful and so attentive to all her guests. Chefs Ivan and Esther made some wonderful Fish Tacos with attention from Gregorio and Hermelindo.
Dinner at La Trattoria at the Golf Club House again was an experience with Juan Carlos serving us who has a great sense of humour and Alejandro-Assistant manager taking time to say hello.
In closing, we travel to Palace resorts 3-4 times a year and all our trips have been wonderful. Our special thanks to all the Palace staff members we have met for it is you who make our trips so memorable. Your friendliness, your service and we never tire of hearing Itza Pleasure. We will be returning again to the Moon Grand.
