We stayed here last month for 5 nights, 5 years after our first visit. Everything was just as we remembered it - super friendly staff that provides excellent service, great food, and a beautiful beachfront setting that is super convenient to shopping, restaurants, and strolling. We will definitely be back, hopefully before another 5 years.

There's not much I can add to all the great things that others have already written. It's always like coming home. The staff and owners are fantastic. We always feel like we're rejoining family that we haven't seen in a year. We've stayed in any number of the rooms. They're clean, spacious, with excellent A/C. Some with balconies and some... More

We spent a lovely 8 nights at Playa Maya. It had been several years since we had been there, and it was just as we remember it. Our room was kept impeccably clean, the staff was welcoming and it was such a joy to be back. The drinks and food were exceptional and priced so fairly. Sadly, the seaweed (which... More

We stayed at Playa Maya late July of 2014 and could not have asked for a better location or group of people in the heart of PDC on the beach. I'll summarize this as pros and cons to save your time reading and focus on what I think the property best offers or may be lacking. PROS: - Attentive, friendly,... More

You might call me a creature of habit; but I would say that I am more like someone with good taste who knows what he wants and is looking for in a vacation experience. It is difficult to come up with any new superlative descriptors about our stay at Playa Maya, this being our 4th year in a row that... More

What a wonderful week we had at Playa Maya! We arrived to one of the staff members ready to carry our luggage from the shuttle van to the hotel office through the sand and check in was easy and quick. We were in our room, changed into our swim suites and having drinks within 30 minutes. Truly, a wonderful way... More

We love it so much we got married there a few years ago!! The location, the STAFF, and the food (try the fish tacos), are the best on the beach. Also,... More

We have stayed here numerous times. We weren't able to make it last year and since the remodel there seems to have been some changes, none of which are deal breakers. However I loved the new veranda for a couple of drinks while it was briefly raining. When we first got there I wasn't sure if I liked the visual... More
