They upgraded our room for a small fee to have direct access to the swimming pool. The service was great and the room nice and clean. The restaurant had breakfast buffet which was ok but not a lot of variety. The only concern was when we ordered room service and had to cancel it since it took forever.

I recently stayed at room 209 in the hotel, the room was spacious and have a small balcony. The view was not towards the pool but towards the street and the green mountain in front of hotel. The swimming pool is big and always clean. During my stay, I had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant, food is pricy and... More

The hotel is really cheap because they offer good accomodation and is pretty clean, no noise and the staff is really nice and helpful, also it has an excellent view of the beach. The lobby offers excellent tours and packages for the customers. I'll definetely stay there again.

Stayed at the Princess Mayev Hotel for two nights on the back end of a two week trip to Oaxaca. I'm stunned that there are not more reviews on this establishment because the manager and staff of this property are exceptional, and the setting of the hotel and it's grounds are exquisite. From check in, a bell boy *ran* down... More

We always do the resort thing but we decided to do something a little different thanks to grandma...so we rented a room a few doors down from them as they have been coming back to this place for years. We clearly understand why, everything you plus a great view!

We stumbled upon this hotel with no reservations. We got a suite with full kitchen for 700 pesos a night. Quite a value. The views are gorgeous and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is Superb, try the Enchiladas suizas. The restaurant staff was very attentive to our needs. They can help you book a day trip... More

We've stayed at the Mayev twice, once in 2008 and most recently in November 2012. The first time was the charm for our return -- only 12 rooms with a beautiful view from the floor to ceiling windows and the balcony of our room overlooking the pool. Between our two visits there had been expansion -- intelligently done. More rooms... More

We spent our Thanksgiving week in Huatulco for the 5th time and I just wanted to say how much we enjoy the Princess Mayev. Clean rooms, great little pool that is never crowded, friendly and helpful staff, and the best view from a balcony that you could ask for! The hotel has expanded in the past year with a few... More
