By far another amazing trip to Banyan Tree. The entire complex of Mayakoba is unique and not to be missed. Take your kids and enjoy reasonable kids meals, Eco tour that's free and you will see amazing crocodiles and all sorts of wildlife. The ambiance is calm and tranquil and very needed in today's world. The detail that Banyan Tree... More

This was the second time we visited Banyan Tree hotel, the service is spectacular, the food delicious, the Spa was splendid, the only not so good thing about the hotel is their rooms, it looks that they need a little touch up, the bath furniture looked a little bit old, and the towels, robes and flip flops were really in...

From the registration process, to the staff, to the restaurants, to the beautiful villas, everything was fantastic. You must rent bicycles as the bike paths are beautiful. All villas are incredible and the Sands beach resort ensure your every need is met.

My husband and I stayed here for a week, and it was truly incredible. The staff was above and beyond friendly and helpful. The food was outstanding. There is a very nice Nature Trail to run between the three resorts. We took the Eco Tour and enjoyed it immensely. The beach is very nice and the staff there is also... More

We had the most incredible experience. The property was exquisite. The service impeccable. From the moment we arrived and were whisked away to our splendid villa, we began to unburden ourselves from the shackles of urban New York. I had the ultimate treatment – the rainforest experience and my husband insists his massage was the best he's had since Bangkok.... More

This was our second stay at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba and it was even better than the first. We upgraded to the Sanctuary Pool Villa for this visit because we were traveling in November and thought we might want the heated pool. We did, in fact, heat the pool but it should be noted that I have a very low... More

Amazing service and spectacular room sums up our stay. To be honest I was worried about returning to Cancun area as my last experience was all inclusive hell but I went with the travel agents reccomendation and so happy I did. This is a very special place for couples and the service was simply amazing. This resort is great for... More

Talk about luxury 5 star travel! Mayakoba Banyan Tree provides it all. It was exactly what we wanted - a little paradise for me and my sister. We rode the courtesy bike around the area, to the beach, to the golf course, to anywhere. We had amazing massages...x2. And, just lounged around in our big cabin as well. It wasn't... More
