We looked into the Moon Palace when we were booking our wedding. The travel agent had been there on her honeymoon and didn't recommend it for a wedding for the reason that they do do a lot of weddings per day and she said we would feel like we were on a conveyor belt. Otherwise she loved it.

We ended up booking Riu Palace Mexico in playa del carmen.

Just 1 piece of advice, book the wedding with the hotel directly. It is much cheaper, you are more in control and the packages are better. Good luck.

I've been to the Moon Palace a couple time and they are noted for their weddings, also their sister hotel (the Adventura Palace) is good too. They are the better hotel of the two. I have seen a few going on but it didn't seem like it was one after another, more like a couple per day. They did seem very nice, my wife even said to me that's the way she wished she would have gotten married instead of the big wedding we had 11 years ago.

My vote would be for the Adventura Palace as it is adults only, just about an hour or so away from Cancun (if that matters at all) but this hotel makes you feel like you are on your honeymoon with no kids running around (as you will get at the other two).

Good luck!
