We stayed in July for five days in #207. From the second floor room/balcony you have a view of two large pools and more importantly the gulf waters. The balcony is large and a great place sit with a cold beverage as the sun goes down. The grounds were lush, flowered and very attractive. This is a one bedroom with... More

We spent 6 nights in room # 318 the week after July 4th. This is a great condo due to all the recent updates. The view of the pool and ocean was awesome. The employees were very friendly and helpful. The kids enjoyed the pool the most. The only complaint I have is the stairwell closest to 318. It smelled... More

We stayed in 209 over 4th weekend. This is a two bedroom unit that overlooked the pool. We choose this place because our usual hangout was filled up months ago. First- the positive- view was great! The gulf waters were visible from the kitchen. The unit was clean. Nice view to cook by. Beach was short walk. Now the negative-... More

Thank you for your recent stay with The Mayan Princess. The unit you stayed in does have a wonderful view of the Gulf of Mexico and our pool area. The seaweed on the beach is a natural occurrence and the clean up is done by the city of Corpus Christi. The condominiums along the beach or prohibited from doing this.... More

We stayed in unit 312 for three nights and enjoyed to pool. Lots of seaweed on the beach. The unit is in desperate need of some TLC. The beds need to be replaced and interior needs a new paint, the carpeting is worn down and the tile grout was BLACK with mildew. Exterior of the building needs new paint!

We appreciate your recent stay with us. Our pool area is one of the attractions our guests love about this condominium.

We rented two units- 203 & 204- both looked like they hadn't been updated it decades!! Honestly the bathtub was the worst! It was difficult getting in and out of and this applies to all ages! There's just no easy access. The bedroom linens were just as outdated as tge rest of the place. The pool area and beach access... More

Room was great, location perfect. Other younger adult guest were a little loud and sometimes annoying, but overall good experience. If you want a quiet area dont book directly in front of pool area. We have stayed at many condos up and down North Padre and Port Aransas and this is our favorite so far.

Wow….what a letdown! This place has a lot of potential, if only they'd put a little effort into it! It looks like it was built in the 80's with nothing done since! I don't particularly care about the decor of a place, but I would like everything to be in working order!! We were in unit 212 and it was... More

This is for condo 505 as all units are independently owned. Let me begin by saying the location and pool are great, the unit because of any other description sucks. Unit 505 appears not to have been updated since the 1980s, the furniture appears to have been purchased from goodwill. No furniture in the bedrooms other than beds, although it... More

We have stayed at the Mayan Princess multiple times and have always been pleased, until this time. Our unit 116 was obviously decorated and supplied by an uninterested owner. Bed was like sleeping on a torture rack. I'm certain that we were sleeping on box springs purchased from Goodwill in 1979. The kitchen was poorly stocked with broken and mismatched... More
