The Watson’s Mexico Family Holiday
By Gerard Watson
As a family we split our stay, spending one week in Nizuc and one week at the Grand, ensuring we got to experience everything the resort has to offer.
Why we love this resort is there is always something to do for all the family, from the kids’ club for our twins, to the excellent Spa for Mrs Watson and finally the outstanding golf course for myself!
The hotel boasts in excess of 20 restaurants, and with steak, pizzas, and vegetarian menus there will always be something to cater for your taste. A few of our favourites are, Los Caporales (Mexican), Arrecifes (Brazilian) both located at Nizuc, Palapa Asadero (steak restaurant) located at Sunrise and finally Tavola (Italian) and The Grill (meat & fish) both located at The Grand. The quality and presentation of the food is as good as you will see in any top restaurant and with so much choice, what more could you want!
The facilities throughout the hotel are excellent, boasting the kids’ clubs, WIRED games lounges, Flowrider, the luxurious Awe Spa and of course the excellent 27-hole golf course onsite. There is something for everyone on resort but for those of you looking for some extra adventure, the excellent ‘Vacation Planners’ located in the lobby can organise any of the numerous offsite tours with one simple visit.
As a family we celebrated our twins’ 5th birthday by doing the Jolly Roger Pirate Ship Adventure. This was arranged prior to our arrival with one simple email to the Vacation Planners and included return transfers. The night itself was full of fun, dancing, pirate fights, excellent food and plenty of drinks – a must for anyone of any age!
The most memorable and pleasing thing about a trip to the Moon Palace is the excellent staff. From the minute you arrive, you are greeted with a refreshing drink, cold towel and a warm “Welcome home”. That sets the standard for your stay, nothing is ever too much and you really are treated like a VIP for the duration of your trip.
So, if you are reading this and you have been considering the Moon Palace or Mexico in general as a possible holiday destination then please get in touch. Whether it’s a golf holiday, family trip, honeymoon or a wedding, we would be very happy to help you start that journey with us.
