The diving was spectacular! I have never seen a more pristine reef! The sea sponges are amazing. The reef was teaming with plant life and a variety of fish...and huge sea turtles! Doug and Catherine made me feel at home and like part of the family. Mark and Ken make every guest feel like you are the only one there.... More

After my first two disappointing trips to other spots in Costa Maya, I found Maya Palms a few years ago, and loved it so much that I couldn't wait until the opportunity arrived so that I could go back. I just returned from the most relaxing, wonderful time at Maya Palms! There is NO PLACE in the area that is... More

Doug and Catherine have made this place another destination for future diving for me. The great personal service provided, its off the path remote location make you wanting to stay for ever.... Maybe someday Doug. I even proposed to my soon to be future fiance because of the romantic setting when visiting Maya Palms.

Jan and I just returned from an August 2013 trip to Maya Palms. We have been diving all over the Caribbean for the past 25 years. This is one of the best dive resorts we have been to. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable. Catherine did a great job with all of the meals. The food was great! Mark... More

I went to Maya Palms as part of a trip run by West End Diving in St Louis. The owner, Doug, led the trip. It was a great experience. I traveled separately from the rest of the group, since I was originating from another city, and my flight put me in ahead of everyone else, so I landed in Cancun,... More

We were here on Christmas Day and there seemed to be a problem with staffing. The people who were working were not particularly welcoming. Two of us did the discover scuba tour. The orientation was good and we felt confident heading out into the open ocean. The rest of our group did the snorkeling. There was absolutely no assistance given... More

We traveled to Maya Palms Resort in October for a scuba diving vacation. What we got was so much more!!! There are pathways around the resort that meander through beautiful gardens. Beach combing is awesome with lots of sea beans for the picking. One of the most difficult decisions you have to make is whether to relax in your lounge... More
