The Mayaland Resort looked like the place was nice about 20 years ago and they haven't paid much on the upkeep. The grounds are large and pretty lush jungle but half of it wasn't even in use. There was an abandoned restaurant in the center of the property. The only restaurant available for dinner was tasty but pretty expensive. The... More

In all our unique history (we are the world's first hotel inside an archeological park), the Mayaland has never been better (I have been involved with the hotel for over 60 years). New furniture, beds, linens, air conditioners (ALL 100+ of them). We are TOTALLY remodeling our rooms and suites in the main building (quietly, un-noticeably). You visited us in... More

I stayed at this hotel at least three times in heh last fifteen years, trying most types of rooms, from the main building ones to the older and newer bungalows. Reading some of the reviews, I noticed that some travelers missed to capture the fact that the hotels has two souls: one is capturing for lunch and a quick souvenir... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your extensive, factual, informative and intelligent review. Having visited our property 3 times in the past and labeling your comment "Many years of excellence.." is highly satisfying, and a compliment to the various generations of Barbachano family members that have devoted their efforts to this 93 year old establishment. I designed and... More

We stayed for just one night as part of a tour of Yucatan. The hotel is a perfect location for Chichen Itza as it is on the same site. We had a bungalow lodge which was a short walk from reception. It was a good size for three people and was clean and looks very pretty with thatched roof and... More

If the Chichen Itza is one of the seven modern wonders of the world, than Maya Land Resort is compliment to this wonder.

This is just perfect. I don't give 5 stars often but this place is just awesome. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is good, the cocktails are cheap and great, the whole scenery is just amazing. Beautiful plants, trees and very romantic bungalows.

We just stayed in one of this hotel's bungalows for the third time. We were blown away by how nice, peaceful and wonderful this place was the first time we went and we go back again and again.

This Resort has captured the perfect blend of architecture, rainforest, and jungle. The room and Balcony have a wonderful view in a semi private setting. The Resort is built right next to the Chichen Itza Ruins. The Entrance is literally a 5 minute walk from your room. I would Stay again and definitely recommend.

My mother and I recently visited Mayaland, we're blown away by the singular pyramid view from our eat on pateo. The stunning tropics blew us away, the heat and humidity almost killed us!

Mayaland has literally Chichen Itza in the backyard and has the perfect location for a visit to this seven wonder of the world. The entrance to Chichen Itza was a short walk, around 4 minutes, from the reception, and that gave us the opportunity to be there the moment they opened. That gave us 30 minutes, one hour alone with... More
