From the moment you step into the lobby, where they provide cool towels and a local sparkling juice, you know you are in for a treat. The property is stunning, built as an eco lodge at the beaches of Mayakoba. Our Suite was luxurious, with the bathroom the size of a full spa, with my favorite, Le Labo soaps and... More

Stunning place - accommodation is splendid, a plethora of pools, great staff, high class breakfast and dinner, the beach part has paradise-white sand. Expensive (of course) and the beach's wave erosion buffers aren't really pretty (I do understand why they are there) so overall a pleasure.

My wife and I enjoyed 6 days at the Fairmont Mayakoba last week, and it was extraordinary. The grounds are lovely, we enjoyed the variety of wildlife at the resort, and the staff are incredible. The meals were also terrific (we ate at El Puerto and La Laguna most often). Can't recommend it highly enough. And can't wait to go... More

I have stayed here twice with my wife and two small kids and both times had a truly memorable time. The resort is extremely quit, peaceful, serene and beautifully verdant with a multitude of flora and fauna to be seen. Both trips involved staying in a Casita. The rooms are well apointed, clean, modern and large. Plenty of room for... More

ACCESSABILITY/LOCATION: 4/5 One of 3 resorts (Rosewood and Banyan Tree) situated amongst the Mayakoba development (owned by a Spanish investment firm) and a top tier golf course (only PGA tournament hosted in Latin America), 45 min highway drive south of Cancun airport, 15 min from downtown Playa del Carmen. One other resort is currently being built, with potential for 1... More

Just returned from honeymoon - 4 nights Ritz Carlton Cancun, 3 nights here. If I knew then what I know now, we'd have spent all 7 nights at the Fairmont. Everything about our experience was top notch - the staff & service, food, accommodations, activities - all delightful. Expensive, but little things like free Wi-Fi for joining Fairmont President's Club,... More

I hate to be repetitive, but I just have to repeat all the positive comments about this great resort. The grounds are among the most beautiful I've ever seen and are immaculately kept. The rooms themselves may not be the most luxurious compared with the other Mayakoba options, but for the money they are excellent. The chance to sit out... More

Had a wonderful 2 weeks in a beachfront villa. Outstanding and friendly service. No need to leave resort. Only negative was the restaurants which we found expensive and lacking too much variety. Would not hesitate to go back

Great hotel and location. This hotel is tucked away in the Mayan forest, makes you feel like staying in a hidden oasis. Only a few rooms are close to ocean. IF you want an ocean view = expensive. This is a great option for those who want a non-Cancun tourist experience. Staff are great, spa was fantastic. Watch out for... More
