My mother and I loved the Mayan palace. The hotel has an open lobby with the breeze constantly flowing through. It is the most centrally located accommodation on the complex, so it was easy to walk everywhere. Even though it is the oldest hotel in the complex, or so I heard, it is still lovely, with wide corridors, and immaculately... More

We travel with 2 teenage daughters who are "divas" so the spring Break holiday has to be up to their lofty expectations...and this time we definitely went above and beyond ... surpassed their ideas and found ourselves in one of the most wonderful resorts ever! I felt like it was heaven on earth. I felt so relaxed. There are boardwalks... More

We stayed in a 1-bedroom for our first 2 nights and then finally agreed to a timeshare presentation and were upgraded our last 5 nights to the Grand Mayan. Fact: we did not ONE time feel hounded about timeshare presentations. If you say a firm no to start, we were never asked again. In fact, when we inquired about upgrading... More

We stayed here directly after a week at our time share, Paradise Village. The Mayan is a lower level of ownership in this huge resort. We stayed at the Grand Mayan last year (one of the top level), and except for the Grand's lazy river (NO other levels allowed there!), and perhaps upgraded bath fixtures and slightly larger room with...

We checked in and were immediately pounced on by a salesperson that relentlessly sought out an appointment with us for an "owner update." She would not give up until we finally agreed to the "one hour" presentation with free breakfast. It was four grueling hours with a good closer. The room itself seemed to be an anachronistic time share from... More

This was our first trip to the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Resort was spectacular. Ocean was nice (not as good as Cancun). We booked through RCI and were happy with the Kitchen. Good range of restaurants, and really enjoyed the Lazy River.

The moment upon arrival you are corralled, processed, and sorted. You get dropped off a very long ways from your hotel and are expected to walk and take in the beauty as your bags get loaded onto golf carts and are out of site until after check in. Check in WILL be a timeshare briefing if you don't watch yourself.... More

In general it was a good trip. I was pleased with the property changes since the last time I was there and we had nice rooms at the Mayan. The food was great in Havana Moon, the Creperia, Azur and down by the pool. The rooms were kept clean and the staff was great. The market is beautiful as well.... More
