While there are always pros and cons when staying somewhere, the cons outweighed the pros of the Mayan Princess. First, the pros. The property is right on the beach so it is a very quick walk to the beach, which during the week is pretty quiet. The beach got a little crowded on the weekend, but that is to be... More

Let me start by saying that our weekend did not start like we planned. We originally booked another hotel but were horrified to find black mold in the vents of 3 different rooms. I am pregnant so being extra cautious, we checked out with the hopes of finding somewhere else to stay. I called Mayan Princess as we were literally... More

Room 505 is not at all like the pics show. Refrigerator did not work, & kitchen faucet did not work properly. Only 2 burners on stove worked, shower in master bath smelled like rotten eggs, Master bath door hit the air exchange cover and will not close, beds are old, noisy and rickety. Wifi only worked if you went outside... More

We arrived and upon arrival it smelled like trash or broken garbage disposal considering no trash was in the room. We told the front desk and they must have fixed the issue when we returned the smell wasn't as bad but still stinchy. The room was very outdated. The huge glass doors and balconys made up for that though considering... More

So I must admit I've stayed at this place a few times, the first time I wasn't real impressed with the unit we rented, this time we had two units for the first couple days and then slimmed down to one for the last day. Let me start with the staff, I found most of the staff to be quite... More

It is a short walk down our private boardwalk to the pristine beaches along the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. Our beautiful tropical pools are superb. All... More

Our family trip started off on the wrong foot... My cousin tried to book this place, but apparently you have to be over 25 to reserve a room. The person (Charlie) helping her on the phone was really condescending towards her. She's only 22, but regardless, staff shouldn't make anyone feel this way. So I called and booked the room....

The Mayan is the jewel of the island! Very calming. Easy access to the beach and not too fussy with the tourist foot, buggy and commotion traffic, but yet very close to all the excitement. I love the layout of the condo and the rooms. Big windows facing the gulf was too hard to resist with a morning coffee and... More

Thank you for your great review. Our guests do call us the Jewel on Mustang Island. All of our condominiums have beautiful pool views or breath taking ocean views. The perfect setting for an early morning cup of coffee or an evening beverage. I am pleased you had a relaxing stay and certainly hope you return soon. Best Regards, The... More

We stayed the day after Labor Day so it was pretty empty. The room was nice and clean. The pools were right out the door. First floor rooms don't have much of a view. All in all we had great time and would definitely come back.

Let me preface this by saying that I took a chance on this place despite it's hit and miss reviews and LOW ranking on places to stay in Pt. Aransas, and I'm pleasantly surprised by the grounds and my unit. I picked this room specifically because it looked, well, pretty LOL, and I wanted a room with a jacuzzi tub... More
