I stayed here with 5 of my fishing buddies last week. The Hotel and restaurant are run by Eduardo. He is the best. He must have had some training in hotel management, because he runs an excellent operation. Not only is the hotel very nice and charming, but the restaurant has the best food in the town. The rooms are... More

When looking for a place to stay in Xcalak we stumbled upon this little hotel conveniently located just north of the town for our 5 night stay. Don't be fooled by the small size of Tierra Maya. The hotel has huge rooms with balconies that look right onto the turquoise ocean. The rooms are well equipped with water, fridge and... More

There were so many wonderful experiences at the Hotel Tierra Maya it is difficult to know where to begin. The staff was wonderful. Eduardo the manager spent time talking with us each day as I noticed he did with all the guests during the time we were there. He always made sure our specific needs were addressed and we felt...

Xcalak is very remote (60km drive from Mahahual, which is a very small village). We drove all the way from Calakmul (took us about 3.5 hrs). When we got to Xcalak, the sargassum (seaweed) was quite smelly and made the beaches look less than appealing. We kept driving, hoping not to find any seaweed in Tierra Maya... but it wasn't...

Oh Eduardo, I miss you so! My boyfriend and I stayed here 10 days, had an upstairs room with small kitchenette which is great if you're staying a longer period of time. Eduardo couldn't be a more friendly, gracious host. He also makes a mean margarita. It's rare to find a place in Xcalak with food (if you've done your... More

The Tierra Maya staff embodies everything that exceptional hospitality service should be. The resort is very cared for and clean, the rooms are well appointed and have charming character - warm colors, authentic furniture and hammocks on the patio! Dining was always a pleasurable experience - fresh lobster, shrimp, and snook available every night. After a long day of fishing,... More

The hotel manager Eduardo goes above and beyond to make sure you are well cared for. The food was always very good, with plenty of choices on the menu. The seafood was great, they even cooked items on request that were not on the menu. The rooms were very clean, beds were changed daily and made. The bathrooms were clean,... More

The fishing and the snorkeling/diving are the area's main attractions. The reef and coralheads are pristine. A boat shows up at the dock on an hour's notice. This may be the best of the half dozen options to stay in a small hotel in Xcalak. In looking around we did not find a better facility. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are... More
