My children and I just spend 6 days at Dos Playas/Maya Caribe and had a great time. The hotel is situated in a very lovely beach area, safe and pleasant. The beach was very enjoyable and comfortable. Yes, the hotel needs some TCL but for the price, comfort and safety, it was worth it. The front desk staff was super!... More

It's 2 hotels in one next to the Riu Palace. Upon arriving for a 1 day stay I was directed to the concierge for check-in. There I tried to check-in by presenting my reservation and the concierge man told me he couldn't find my reservation and gave me the excuse that their reservation office does not work on a Sunday....

We regret the incident with your booking and we have taken note of the receptionist's attitude towards you. The hotel does not accept, under any circumstances, any gratification for the guest to turn a profit. We appreciate your brief stay in our property. More

Just stayed here for 1 week and loved it. Yes, the rooms are a little dated and could use some TLC, but I didn't go to Cancun to stay in my room! It is actually two hotels in one, the other being Dos Playas. There are 3 pool areas and a lovely stretch of private beach just down some steps.... More

Maya Caribe currently shares the check-in area with Dos Playas and guests from staying in both hotels can share the facilities in each property, which is really an advantage for all of them. Our maintenance staff is always willing to assist our valuable guests when they have situations as you describe. The lizard (transparent) you mention is totally harmless for... More

Very budget hotel, even if you can get it for next to nothing don't bother. 1* at its best, loads of areas waiting for an accident to happen. Food a waste of time, always cold, and bar was very very limited as to what it had in stock, ok if you like water or diluted orange. No hot water for... More

We noticed that you gave Maya Caribe an excellent quality/rate score. Yes, our property is focused on low budget tourists that visit Cancun trying to save money on accomodation in order to be able to expend more on tours and entertainment. Your comments about making improvments are important to us and we´ll take actions in that direction. More

We regret all the inconveniences you had during your staying at Maya Caribe. Our team will do the best to keep guests happy with their accomodation but, sometimes, due to availabilty, it is difficult to change rooms. Everyone is informed about the check-out time when check-in, in order to avoid additional charges for our guests in case of late check-outs. More
