Palace Resorts Mexico: Cozumel Palace and The Grand at Moon Palace, world apart and beautifully unique @palaceresorts
Cozumel Palace is a unique resort and is a diver’s dream. A coral reef sits right beyond the property in the warm blue waters where guests can grab complimentary snorkel gear and jump right in. The fish is plentiful and there is a lifeguard that overseas snorkelers. Fun for the entire family and highly recommended. SCUBA diving excursions are available as are night dives.
The intimate resort has 169 suites, each with a double whirlpool tub and balcony. Traveling with the family as we were, we stayed in a loft suite which offers two floors with a bedroom with double beds upstairs and a full bath and a king size bed and full bath downstairs.
The resort is truly all inclusive with top shelf liquor available throughout the resort including an ensuite bar, in our case 2 bars, one on each floor! The dining options are plentiful and the cuisine is refined, a pleasant surprise as one doesn’t always find that in an all- inclusive. MOMO, the Pan-Asian restaurant was our favorite with teppanyaki cooking and fresh sushi, the kind us New Yorkers are used to and rarely find when traveling in the caribbean. Bugambilia’s serves authentic mexican cuisine in a laid back environment and the staff can make a mean margarita. For casual dining try Turquesa for breakfast and lunch buffets and for a-la carte Italian dining. Room service is available for breakfast in bed or cozy romantic dinner on the balcony.
After dinner there is nightly entertainment for the entire family. From live music, singing and dancing to authentic Mexican shows. The lobby bar is open late for a night cap and was the hot spot for drinking and mingling each evening.
The spa is there to pamper the guests, the knowledgable staff is there to plan your dream destination wedding and/or honeymoon and the concierge is there to plan your offsite excursion. Cozumel Palace is a unique and special resort for the entire family.
Getting there: Guests fly into Cancun International airport and take a 40 minute ferry to Cozumel from Playa del Carmen, resort is a 10 minute walk or a very short taxi ride away. The resort helps arrange transfers for guests.
Moon Palace in Cancun has been a mainstay as one of the grandest all-inclusives in Cancun, however with the most recent opening of the Grand at Moon Palace Cancun All-Inclusive everything about this Palace Resort is elevated to new levels.
The accommodations are luxe from grand swimup suites, family suites, garden view suites and the massive Presidential suites.
The dining options are endless with a fine dining middle eastern restaurant Habibi, Cielito Lindo Mexican restaurant, Tavola, an italian trattoria, Jade, a fusion asian restaurant, Le Chateau, an elegant adults only french restaurant, JC Steakhouse, a prime steakhouse requiring reservations and is highly recommended, a Tapas & Vino bar, Boulangerie, a quaint coffee shop, Caribeno, an authentic caribbean eatery, Cusco, a Peruvian restaurant along with food & drink choices at the adults only Unique Day Club, Beach club and much more.
The Grand section alone is a huge property with transport by open air shuttle being the most popular option, especially down to the beach club or if one wishes to venture to another section of moon palace to perhaps experience The Flowrider, a manmade surfing machine.
There is a waterpark at the Grand with thrill rides, a wave pool, a lazy river, tube rides, kids club and of course a bar serving tropical cocktails. Wired a teen club open till midnight with the newest arcade games, video games, and a snack and ice-cream bar. A disco for late night revelers, an adults only pool club with food & bar and DJ pumping music throughout the day as well as a bowling alley. Lounging by a different pool every day was no problem with 9 pools available, many with swim up bars.
Nightly shows are Vegas Style, rivaling many you actually see stateside in Vegas. A huge theatre with bar and snacks service offering everything from trapeze acts, contortionists, gymnasts and a Michael Jackson experience show.
The Grand offers a pampering spa, golf, conference rooms, wedding preparations, offsite excursions. Everything is grander at the Grand Moon Palace Cancun.
