I used to come to the former Maeva. My very last experience (3 years ago) had been terrible. I didn't like it at all. When I had to plan my vacations this year I was somehow hesitant to come back. To my surprise, the concept has changed. It seems the management is trying to get it back to life. Food... More

I have been to what was once called Club Maeva many times, and there is a reason why I have returned - I always have a great stay! Not a long trip from the airport - probably 40 minutes. The resort is huge. It is a bit of a walk down to the beach, but you are on holiday! The... More

The layout of the resort is massive. The resort was all centered around a square that was like a Mexican town center. Really cool. There were many Mexican families here, not many Canadians or Americans, which made it better in my opinion. If you want to holiday with Canadians, maybe better to stay in Canada. The food was great and... More

Our family of 3 stayed there from March 15 - 29, 2013. We would go back in a heartbeat but would definately take some Spanish lessons before going again.

We are a family that travels every winter to a 3-4 star resort. We are not a fussy family but expect a certain level of service and this resort does not have it. We booked Gran Festivall through Air Transat and they have it advertised as a “Family Collection” resort. This resort is definitely not an English family resort. To... More

For adults coming down from Canada, we would rate this a 3 star hotel, but the kids and grand-kids that we brought with us, would rate this a 4 plus star.
