We just returned from a long, holiday weekend at the Rosewood Mayakoba. As most reviews describe, this place is over-the-top amazing. Unfortunately, we had a bad experience with theft from our villa within three hours of arriving. I would like to share my story to encourage others to be extra careful when traveling to Mexico. First, we were picked up... More

My wife and I went to the hotel for a quick 48 hour escape for her birthday. While beautiful and serene, it did not quite live up to the perfection of places like the Capella Pedregal in Cabo for a romantic trip. The food was very good, but not fantastic, and the lagoons were serene but not quite stunning. There... More

I went to RM for my honeymoon. Since we arrived the staff where awesome, very friendly, nice and made easy checking in in this great hotel. Once you arrive vy car you enter trough a big gate, very intimidating and resort-like, but once you pass trough the jungle that steps between the hotel and the rest of the world you'll... More

My family of 4 stayed at this hotel in August 2014 and were extremely happy. We started in the ocean view room with a pool on the rooftop but found that we wanted to have easier access to the pool at our room so we upgraded to the oceanfront room after 2 days (we stayed 7). The hotel was very... More

We travelled as a family, 2 adults & 2 children (7 & 4). Being pretty well travelled worldwide, this property is one of the best I have visited! The beauty & interest if the lagoon, the idyllic sea, the world class service & delicious food are exemplary! They strike a wonderful balance between child friendly, but still very luxurious &...

Rosewood Mayakoba, nestled in serene beauty along the Maya Riviera coast, offers many opportunities for a relaxing escape from chaos. The hotel lobby is unpretentious and welcoming. With open walls, the coastal breeze fans the spirit while two powerful panther statues act as guardians, poised by a refreshing waterfall feature. Casual and calm decor invite you to sit back and...

The Rosewood Mayakoba is a large and beautifully maintained property. What not to miss: 1) plan to have the breakfast buffet at the main restaurant. Don't miss the cronuts, the muexli parfait, and the assortment of other delightful pastries and gourmet cheeses. 2) stay on the beach and wake up for a gorgeous sunrise 3) rent (free) bikes 4) use...

This is our favorite resort on the planet. The level of service is out of this world! They anticipate your every want and need. Example: last time we stayed here we were swimming in the pool and suddenly it started to rain. Two guys came immediately running out to us with umbrellas even though we were in the pool!! The...

Following 1 week of bare boating in the BVI, we flew on to Cancun for a few days of relaxation along the Mayan Riviera, before heading back to Europe via Miami. Having visited the Yucatan and its gorgeous coastline some 14 years ago, we were seriously shocked to see the mass tourist development and its inevitable impact that has taken... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rosewood Mayakoba is situated on the Riviera Maya. This luxury resort in Mexico offers spacious suites and is located south of Cancun and north of the charming seaside village of Playa del Carmen.Surrounded by the emerald embrace of the jungle and caressed by warm Carribbean breezes, is a resort of rare luxury and indulgence. Rosewood Mayakoba is imbued with the unique spirit of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. A journey to this serene world, immersed in the dense green perfume of the jungle, captivates the soul with unimaginable tropical beauty,and pure, simple refinement. The ecological enclave of Mayakobá is a new, enlightened model of true luxury hospitality that celebrates the land without compromising it. Mayakoba embraces the government restrictions on development and mangrove preservation which has always been a top priority for the developers and designers. The Madrid-based construction company OHL, with 25 years of experience in Mexico, owned the land for many years before choosing how to build upon it. ... more   less
