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...

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

I have traveled extensively and yet I was amazed by the level of service and attention to detail at Rosewood Mayakoba. The staff here may easily teach the rest of the lodging industry how to provide constantly unparalleled service. The grounds are perfect. The rooms are wide and comfortable. Bathrooms and closet space ample. We stayed in an Ocean Front... More

The most extraordinary service, the most beautiful grounds, this is the best hotel I've stayed in to date! Here's a short list of things I loved about Rosewood Mayakoba: - The attention to detail and organization of my belongings and Suite items. - Slippers were replenished daily, always put away and out of the way. - The way my Suite...

It's all true - the Rosewood is excellent. The staff are unfailingly helpful (we found thus to be the case everywhere we went in Mexico). Special mention must go to JC, our butler who gave us some great restaurant recommendations. If you're staying a few nights you'll want to dine outside the resort. The Agave Azul Asian restaurant is fabulous... More

The Rosewood Mayakoba was exceptional in every way. From the moment we were picked up at the airport in an Escalade, to the check-in and trip to our beautiful villa via boat on the lagoon, to our private butler Frank (who was absolutely fantastic in every way!) to our daily bike ride to breakfast with the exceptional and intuitive waiter...

I have stayed at all 3 of the resorts in mayakoba and this is one of my favorites. All the resorts are different. If you want a great room or condo go to banyan tree. if you want a great pool, beach and food. Go to Rosewood. If you want a less expensive place go to the Fairmont. Although They... More

After A LOT of research my husband and I decided to get married and honeymoon here. We could not have picked a better place!

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
