  3. Thank you for the comprehensive review John. Have always wanted to experience Mexico and the resort you recommend is obviously very attractive.

    The reason we have never been there, is that we have been wary of political and social instability in Mexico. Is going there and travelling around the country safe enough? 

    Thanks in advance! Arie

    1. I would imagine traveling would be fine, especially if you take advantage of local guides for your travels. The areas where the resorts are located are beachfront and stable. Jamaica is always another beautiful option. Thanks for taking the time to comment I really appreciate getting them on my posts. Cheers!

  5. Wow… ! The Moon Palace is for sure a force with what they do for people. 

    They are not just a five star resort that provides top notch services, they also provide philanthropic services too. 

    Taking care of orphans and giving scholarships to the the less privileged, is an applaudable thing the Moon Palace have been doing for years. 

    I am sure I would love to be lodging with a resort like that. 

    One that doesn’t just cater for the high and mighty, but also reaches out to the poor masses. 

    1. Thanks for leaving a comment Peace,

      You are correct, Palace Resorts has helped with orphans and scholarships for many years.

      They are also involved in other charity organizations and they have won awards for their efforts.

      Some companies are wonderful to the community and Palace Resorts are one of those companies.

      I blog about many types of luxury travel and one area people seem to love is luxury home rental deals.

      They can live like kings in private luxury homes most anywhere in the world by just doing a search.

      Happy Travels.

  6. This resort seems like an incredible place to visit for any special occasion. Moon Palace Resorts is a good tip where I can imagine to stay for a week with my husband for our round anniversary. I have eight years of experience working in the hotel industry and from your post can easily give this hotel 9,5 out of 10 stars. I like their credit system it’s very enticing. 

    Glad to find your site, will be back to get more inspiration!

    Thank you for the tip 🙂

     Going by your review, the place looks great. I have never been to Mexico or Jamaica before, but I would love to visit both locations at some point in my life.

    I would love to experience Mexico in the nearest future. How I wish the 45% discount would still be available then.
