Even though this is a much smaller resort than the Nuevo Vallarta Mayan Palace, the location across the street from the Marina is fantastic. 1) Location: The location across from the Marina is great. You get to walk along the Marina and there is plenty of nightlife with bars and restaurants to choose from. It was also convenient if you're... More

My husband, 12 y/o daughter and I stayed at the marina location during spring break. It was busy but not crowded. The pool is nice and there are many fun activities, especially for children, during the day at the pool. Many of the pool lounges have little awnings which we have not seen before, but were very nice to have.... More

My husband and I traveled with our 2 daughters age 14 and 3. The grounds are beautiful and well kept. The beach is not very large but nice. It is the length of the resort. There are vendors that ask you to buy things, but they're not pushy. We enjoyed the restaraunt and the staff. The marina is across the... More

At night, someone in the unit below was smoking which drifted into our unit even with our windows closed. Annoying when you have respiratory problems. Key card deactivated a day early for no apparent reason making it difficult to make an urgent stop into our unit. The best part of our unit was each and every morning we were able... More

Mayan Palace provided everything I wanted in a vacation. We stayed in a 1 bedroom quite on the beach side of the building with stunning views of the ocean, bay, and downtown. Each room has a full wall window/sliding glass door that you can (and will want to) leave wide open all the time, especially while you sleep. The rooms... More

Great condominium-style rooms. Very spacious. Incredible views. Beach isn't great but has a fun water park. Food on-site was excellent and very knowledgable concierge. Sandwiched in between Nuevo Vallarta & Puerto Vallarta, you can easily get to downtown by bus or short cab ride. Walking distance to lots of quaint shops & restaurants.

Nice hotel. Very clean. Made sure we were confortable. Like most beds in Mexico they were hard. Great pool, also had a adult only pool.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom Suite the week after Thanksgiving. Granted, this is not the most luxurious property in PV, however the rooms, hotel, pool and grounds were pristine and beautiful. The hotel staff was so friendly and helpful. We spent days at the pool. The activity staff were very entertaining and the service was excellent. We were not... More

My wife and I stayed at the Mayan Palace @ the Marina. This is not the Mayan @ the Nuevo Vallarta site. Which is in a middle of major new building phase. Very shorty this site will be amazing. If you can get a short visit to the site with gifts involved. Now for the Mayan@ the Marina. Our plane... More

After reading some very negative reviews of the Mayan Palace (Marina) I left for our 2-week vacation with very low expectations of the resort. Thankfully though my fears were quickly dispelled. My aunt has a timeshare so we didn't have to pay for our stay, but had I paid for the lodging I would not have been disappointed. The lobby... More
