sometimes you just want to relax and forget about the world, mayan beach garden offers it. its a small hotel in the middle of nowhere takes a while to arrive but that same distance is the distance you need to simply leave everything behind, with a great staff ( Martinis the best ) and offering a lot of personalization makes...

Thank you so much for your review. I'm glad the mosquitoes of rainy season did not bother you too much. We have dusk mosquitoes, especially in rainy season. After about 3 weeks of dry weather, most of them go away and we are free of them and when it is breezy and sunny, they get blown back into the jungle.... More

The resident beach dog grins when you arrive, setting the tone. We are Mayan Beach Gardens devotees. We've stayed here many times....but, never before in the Off-season aka the Rainy Season. Everything is, of course, perfect....BUT YOU PAY LESS! This is absolutely the only thing Marcia and Kim could have done to make their little hotel more attractive. My friends,... More

I think Smiley bonded with you. He's been somewhat calmer since you left. Perhaps the memory of fun guests has somehow left him more satisfied. After all, a good hotel dog always loves the guests! Thanks for the review and thank you for bringing your dear friends with you. Marcia. More

Planning a trip to the Yucatan and want to integrate with the locals in an amazing way? Then, look no further than MBG. We had NO idea what to expect on our recent adventure into the peninsula, but were with great friends who were terrific guides. Mayan Beach Gardens is indeed remote, but stunningly appointed with beautiful art by the... More

If you are looking for a peaceful place and need some rest - this is a place for you. It is far and very different from all the Yucatan resorts. The rooms are pretty and very clean, the bed is comfortable and so is the shower but with no hot water. nevermind, since these are not really necessary there. If... More

Thank you for your kind review, we remember you fondly and hope some day our paths might cross again. I want to extend my sincere apologies that we didn't catch that your water never got hot, and even more so if you reported it to someone (like me) and we didn't respond immediately. One of the quirks of having an... More

We stayed in this lovely, well-run place for 6 days, which was probably 2 days too long, as there isn't a lot to do in the area. A car is an absolute necessity, allowing you to drive into Sian Kaan or south to check out Majahual and Xcalak. We had one of the ocean-front cabinas, and it was beautifully appointed,... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.

We have found that to be a better solution... More

Marcia, her husband, and staff were super accommodating and friendly. The food was great and she will give you great ideas and activities to do in town. The food was fantastic!

I will never forget the "insect incident". We live on an isolated stretch of beach and when the lights are on ,they are a magnate for light loving insects. Actually, this was a unique incident and we didn't know that so many would come into the room if you leave the light on and the door open for a lengthy... More

We had high expectations and ... were not dissapointed! We spent 4 nights at MBG and it was a great experience. A fantastic location on the beach, away from it all.

Thank you so much for returning to us this year. Its raining right now and rather than snorkeling, I'm spending my time thinking of my guests and writing responses. It is a fun thing to do and I'm thankful for the excuse (although of course I would rather be out snorkeling). Hope to see you again!. More

I began inquiring about Mayan Beach Garden about a month before our trip. Marcia was incredible about answering all of my questions and offering suggestions about things to do and so on.
