We are looking into staying at the Moon Palace the next time we go. It is closer to Cancun. There is a ton of stuff for kids to do there. I don’t know much about Paraiso del Mar, but I am sure it will be a great place to stay.
All-inclusive is the only way to go. Especially when taking your children. Our kids ate & drank whenever they wanted to. Ours are older but It will be fun for yours, too.[/quote]
After many excursions to ‘The Snake’s Nest’ aka Cancun, I have stayed at:
Club International de Cancun
Gran Melia Cancun
My fianc? and I stayed at the Moon Palace this past June. The place is pretty big and has two lobbies. The All-Inclusive is nice, and they have different restaurants you can eat at so, the same meals don’t get boring. Plus, who can beat the drinks by the pool? Also, there are All-Inclusive plans with unlimited tours, so I would look into that, but just make sure you have the details sorted out before you get there, because once you do if something is wrong, they do not like to help, or at least Chaza Travel didn’t, and that is who we had to deal with because we used my parents’ Time-Share, which wasn’t that good of a deal. I will be looking for other options next time, like Costco. If you know of any other places to book a deal with the Palace Resorts let me know.
For a Taxi ride to the ‘hotel zone’ it is $18 bucks to and fro, and they do have a shuttle that runs two times a day that will take you to a shopping center. We did this, and then took the bus, 6 pesos, and then just ended up taking a cab back.
Anywho, here are a few pics of Moon Palace:
