We visited in January after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. The booking was very easy online through e-mails. The staff answered all questions, and sent great directions on meeting the taxi which took us to the resort. The drive took 25 minutes through the countryside, ending the last mile or so on a dirt road. It was very beautiful, and provided... More

My husband and I booked the all inclusive beach break, including transportation, for our cruise stop at Costa Maya on Jan. 21. We found the taxis to take us there by following the map provided with our confirmation. The drive to Almaplena is 20-30 minutes down some desolate roads through the mangroves. At times we wondered what we got ourselves... More

Booked the one day excursion off their website and met the cab at cruise terminal. A 25-30 minute ride, and your on the secluded no... More

My wife and I reserved the beach break day for our cruise day in port at Costa Maya. So glad we came here. The all-inclusive price meant we could enjoy the day without wondering how much things would cost. The property is clean, hosts were gracious, the food delicious, and the beach beautiful.

We had a lovely time in Almaplena. The room was very nice. We booked late so we didn't get an upstairs room, but being on the ground floor we had easy access to the beach. If we were to go back I would consider to book the Allure suite... It's fantastic room with a very nice style. Overall our stay... More

We stayed in Almaplena 3 days in November to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Upon arrival we found some construction in progress in the lobby and above our room cause they were improving the place but it never bother us. Every time we were in our room the workers stop so we enjoyed calm and silence all of our trip. The... More

We picked up a taxi and headed down there( included with our package) and had a nice day of relaxation, wonderful service & wonderful food. We did not do any snorkeling since I failed to read the instructions and did not... More
