One of the best options if pools matter to you, Moon Palace, finds itself set in the vicinity of Cancun along the beach. This allows guests connection not only to a pool but the seafront as well. We've awarded this resort a 4 star rating. Some love it merely because they can save you time and trouble with their all-inclusive packages. On top of featuring a pool, Moon Palace houses 6 courts where guests might enjoy a round of tennis.

With the phenomenal collection of 8 pools at Moon Palace Golf Resort - All Inclusive, people are able to swim in a different swimming pool environment every day of the week. The premier swimming pool is appreciated for its elaborate design, which has visitors oohing and aahing while they enjoy their time just beyond the splashing water. As far as pools go it's pretty big, and offers exquisite landscaping. As an added bonus, there is a whirlpool for tired guests to soak, supplying a warmer, more calm environment for adults to enjoy some quiet time.

Furthermore, the swimming pool area has a choice of extras that provide the opportunity for the location's guests to take pleasure in a full day around the pool. The pool snack cart is a great place to purchase a small snack in between meals. If you feel parched, just find your way over to the pool bar, which serves up a selection of alcoholic beverages on top of those of the non-alcoholic variety.

When you're spending some time in the pool and want a beverage to sip on, there is no need to bother exiting the swimming pool. Visitors to these grounds will experience the bonus of their swim up bar, which gives you the opportunity to swim over to the attendant, grab a beverage, and paddle back to your spot, beverage in hand.

Each hotel in the Yucatan Peninsula has its own style and set of creature comforts; you're just clicks away from finding the hotel that has everything you're looking for.
