This past October, Rachel and I traveled to the gorgeous Moon Palace in Cancun, Mexico. The Moon Palace is part of a group of resorts called the Palace Resorts. As a member of the Palace Resorts, one of the perks is free access to other Palace Resorts in Cancun and Playa Del Carmen. Being in the health and fitness industry, I was curious as to how the fitness centers looked and what equipment they had to offer. And with the membership perk, we were able to visit several of the Palace Resorts locations and I got an opportunity to check out each resort’s fitness center. Like everything else at the Moon Palace and Palace Resorts, the equipment and services are first class.
First, at the Moon Palace where Rachel and I stayed, there is a fitness center or gimnasio located in the Sunrise Lobby as well as the Nizuc Lobby. Each fitness center was very well laid out in terms of space. The gimnasio in Sunrise was having a yoga class when I entered. Guests were using the Life Fitness machines – treadmills, exercise bikes, and strength equipment – throughout the center. There were plenty of free weights – dumbbells, exercise bars, benches – as well as accessories like stability balls, yoga mats, and stretching mats available. It was filled with guests but not crowded. Great natural lighting through the windows which formed the back walls of the gym. Clean, locker rooms and lockers available, and of course that great customer service from the gym center attendants.
When Rachel and I visited Playcar Palace in Playa Del Carmen, we had free bus transportation to and from our resort. The gimnasio was located on the bottom level of the hotel next to a meditation area labeled “Namaste.” This gimnasio was a bit smaller in size but still had the great Life Fitness equipment. All of the equipment was in clean, functional condition. Playacar Palace had treadmills, ellipticals, exercise bikes, free weights, and a multi gym. This multi gym was space efficient and allowed the user to perform a full range of strength training exercises. The natural light was awesome and you had a nice view of the gardens at Playacar Palace.
The Beach Palace has one of the most incredible fitness centers I have ever seen. First, it is located on the rooftop of the Beach Palace, which overlooks the Caribbean Sea and downtown Cancun. The facility is equipped with Life Fitness treadmills, bikes, and ellipticals. It has a rack of dumbbells and some free weight benches. And it has a multi gym similar to the one at Playacar Palace. But the view is absolutely breathtaking. Whether you are riding an exercise bike or running on one of the treadmills, you can peek out the window and gaze out at the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. It is such a a unique gym and was such a treat to visit this fitness center.
Whether in the Moon Palace or at the Beach Palace or Playacar Palace, fitness enthusiasts can enjoy top notch fitness equipment and facilities. Each facility has plenty of space and equipment. The equipment is clean and functional. There are plenty of accessories such as stability balls, mats, dumbbells, and benches to accommodate any fitness level. There are classes such as Yoga which you as a guest of the resort have access to. The gimnasio or fitness centers at the Palace Resorts are just another bonus for your stay in gorgeous Cancun, Mexico.
