Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort offers all inclusive luxury close to Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, complete with top food and some of the best beaches around!
A few weeks ago I flew to Mexico to begin 3 months of travel. I’m spending the first four weeks in areas in and around Playa Del Carmen and Cancun. My first weekend coincided with the TBEX annual conference (an event for travel bloggers) so I headed to Cancun and checked into Moon Palace Golf and Spa Resort. It’s one of the largest hotels on the Cancun coastline, but is a little way south of the main hotel zone.
All inclusive resorts often have a bad reputation when it comes to food. I’ve stayed at a few which had large buffets of low-quality food. After a few days of it, you’ve tried everything and are stuck eating a repetitive menu. At Moon Palace, the lunchtime buffets are generally very good, with plenty of variety – Mexican dishes, sushi, salads, pizza, pasta and more. I particularly enjoyed sampling the special ceviche menu at lunchtime on the a Sunrise terrace.
In the evenings you’re spoiled for choice. Assuming you stay around a week, you can easily eat somewhere different every night. Plus as you travel between sections, you feel more like you’re venturing out for the evening – and avoid that ‘all-inclusive claustrophobia’ which is common.
