One of the best properties for pools, Moon Palace, finds itself set in the vicinity of Cancun within walking distance of the beach. This gives visitors access not only to a swimming pool but the sun, sand, and surf too. We have given this resort a 4 star rating. It's also good to know that they can save you time and trouble with their all-inclusive pricing. On top of having a pool, Moon Palace houses 6 courts where vacationers might take pleasure in a game of tennis.

With the large amount of 8 swimming pools at Moon Palace Golf Resort - All Inclusive, tourists can check out a unique pool scene every day of the week. The main pool is recognized for its decorative design and style, which has visitors amazed as they hang out just beyond the splashing water. It's a rather large pool, accommodating many guests, and has flawless grounds. There is also a soothing whirlpool for guests to ease into, sharing a warmer, more relaxed spot for adults to unwind from the day.

Also, the pool area offers a number of conveniences that allow vacationers to delight in a full day by the swimming pool. The poolside snack stand is an excellent location to get a simple morsel as you endure the time between meals. When you get in the mood for something fruity, just go over to the poolside bar, which serves a variety of alcoholic beverages and those of the non-alcoholic variety.

As you're swimming in the pool and want a beverage to quench your thirst, there is no need to bother making your way out of the pool. One surprising perk happens to be the luxury of their swim up bar, which allows you the chance to swim over to the attendant, acquire a beverage, and paddle away, drink in hand.
