Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a beautiful resort in a beautiful setting. The food is fantastic, the beach is gorgeous (although not really suited for swimming - but that's not my thing anyway), and the service was above par with every interaction. All of these things are great reasons to visit Banyan Tree Mayakoba but the privacy of the villas is... More

We have stayed in many many top resorts like Jumby bay, Sandy lane Barbados but nothing compares to this place. The service is brilliant and the villas although showing their age in some parts are amazing . The food was excellent but I would prefer if they had a daily special at lunchtime at the beach club as the food... More

This place is beyond words... We spent 3 nights here and had an amazing time. We had the luxury pool villa and it was the perfect romantic setting for my husband and I. The service and treatment from the staff is superb. Everyone is very friendly and always cater to your every need. They have a very good variety of... More

The service at Banyan Tree Maykoba is of the highest caliber - 5 stars easily. The rooms are incredible - 5 stars. The property is gorgeous - 5 stars. The beach is pretty awful compared to what we experienced further south in Tulum - 2.5 to 3 stars max for the beach. This may be a temporary thing, but basically... More

We just finished a week long stay. This resort is unparalleled by any other that we have been to (and we have been to a lot of places). The facilities, service, and restaurants are all incredible. The resort is pristine and incredibly well maintained. We were there with our three children and the staff were great with them too. We... More

We just returned from our third stay in the Banyan Tree and had a very relaxing 6 days. This time we had a luxury pool villa, the two previous years we had villas with and extra inside sitting area. We were very pleased with this type of villa. It had two outside sitting arrangements, which gave us more variety, and... More

We've spent 1 week between Banyan Tree and Rosewood Mayakoba recently and it was just the perfect way to do. It was Spring Holidays in the US so both places were full of kids which was sometimes annoying specially in the restaurants we were very disappointed that they don't have area just for kids of families so doesn't matter where...

Overall this is an amazing place. But it is expensive. At no point will you think that you are getting a deal but you will get the service you would expect. You can probably get a better deal somewhere else but I doubt you will find a place that is higher quality. The resort was at capacity while we were... More

I stayed in a basic golf villa over three days. The facilities are a bit of a trek to get into, set back in a new development. The beach is a modest golf cart ride away. Both the beach area and adjacent pool are compact but very nice. A second, larger pool area is located near the hotel. Besides the... More

Just spent spring break at the Banyan Tree in a 3 bedroom golf villa. It was divine. The hotel is well designed, feels like it was a feng shui design. There is an open airiness to the main lobby. The staff was also so accommodating. I highly recommend Candra for massages. She was awesome. We loved the villa. Only three... More
