THE GRAND AT MOON PALACE is an absolute WIN. I love it as a family resort. It is top notch. It is huge but has multiple methods of onsite transportation easily accessible. Every room has a jacuzzi + balcony. Clean. Multitude of restaurants. Great Entertainment. There is something for everyone. If your preference is small/boutique hotel, this will not be a good choice for you.

Con(s): Extremely large property


  • Phenomenal for Children/Teens. Teen Club (14-17 ages). Dome with bumper cars, laser tag, fun house, snacks/drinks, obstacle courses. Amazing water park with slides, lazy river and mini wave pool. Putt Putt Golf. Arcade with floor to ceiling TV for Xbox/Playstation 

  • Exchange privileges with Moon Palace and Nizuc. 

  • Access to multitude of restaurants and lounges spanning across (3) onsite properties


XCARETis an amazing hotel and guests get the pleasure of complimentary entrance to all of the eco parks they own. Best amenity EVER!!!! 

If you want both an authentic Mexican experience while simultaneously basking in luxury...... Xcaret is the place for you and/or your family. 

They have both family and adults only sections.

Con(s):Evening onsite activities are limited.


  • Complimentary (unlimited) park entrance and transportation to any and all of their parks

  • Plethora of room categories and multiple hotels to satisfy any desire

  • Access to multitude of Restaurant across onsite properties. Food is outstanding.

  • Many night clubs and lounges 


PLANET HOLLYWOOD CANCUN is an amazing properties. It literally has something for everyone from a movie theater, to karaoke, to sports bar with private room to great pool parties to my fav a lazy river complete with a grotto bar. They even clap for you when you enter the building. 

Con(s): Front Desk Service can be unprofessional and make sure you check your bill daily. 


  • Abundance of onsite activities including mini golf and trampoline park. $$

  • Movie Theater, Great Restaurants

  • Adult and Family Section - Good Vibe on Both
