I've returned to Maya Tulum every winter for close to 20 years. A testament to the resorts quality and consistency. We always bring friends typically professionals looking to unplug and have a relaxing healthy week - they've all left fans. Some have their favorite palapa - 28 near the dining hall or 8 on the beach or the 7u -... More

I was at Maya Tulum last week and there is a major issue at the property that they are failing to tell their future guests about. Tulum has been clobbered by an avalanche of seaweed of biblical proportions. The prolblem is not Maya Tulum's fault but how they are handling it is. When you arrive at the property after the...

The resort is a no frills yet relaxing yoga focused property situated directly on the beach. Before leaving the airport, be sure to use the bathroom and buy a bottle of water and snack. The ride from the airport to the resort is about 2 hours without any check point delays. Due to its proximity to the jungle (across the... More

I've traveled to Maya Tulum twice now as a solo traveler and cannot say enough good things about this resort. I always felt safe, the resort is clean, food is wonderful and the yoga classes are top notch. The spa is the highlight and what I look forward to the most! The treatments are world class and the prices are... More

Tulum has one of the best beaches in the world and there is no exception to this resort being located on an amazing beach! The resort itself including the rooms(at least the one I stayed in which was directly facing the ocean) was great. Simple with sufficient space. It was so relaxing to fall asleep with the sound of the... More

I spent a week at Maya Tulum - doing their MBS 7 night retreat - and it was fantastic. The pace is laid back, the site beautiful, the yoga excellent. Our room had a porch and a view of the beach and ocean - very relaxing. The weather was perfect; the staff wonderful. The food could be more exciting (more... More

I went to Maya Tulum to relax, recharge, practice yoga and enjoy the beach. It was perfectly what I needed and hoped for. It's a breathtaking, peaceful property. The atmosphere is very laid back and friendly. I walked barefoot in warm, powder fine sand all week, had amazing yoga classes w/ the resident instructors - especially enjoyed Irene from Italy...

This was our second trip to Maya Tulum. We came in 2013 and felt like we had more to do and explore in Tulum. This resort is a great base. The atmosphere here is calm & spacious. Also this resort is somewhat centrally located between the strip of eco-chic boutique yoga/hippy hotels and the more subaurban, or, mainstream tourist areas.... More

I just returned from leading a yoga retreat for 16 people. This was the 5th international retreat I've led. We really need to leave the NE in the winter. I had heard so much about Maya Tulum. They run so many retreats. I was expecting this one to be easy and professional. Not so much. First the good. Cudos to... More

This was my second visit to Maya Tulum. I went the first time in 2007 for a 5 day MBS, and I fell in love. The food is amazing and fresh, the view from the restaurant is serene and unbeatable, and I love the yoga. This time however, I found our room dated. We stayed in room D, which has... More
