The room we stayed in was nice, clean and updated. The pool area was nice my only issue was with the strong chemical smell and lack of heat to the jaccozi. The access to the beach is a nice walk and we felt save even after dark. Not having a pool side bar is a little disappointing but we made... More

Room 316 was awesome! From the awesome view of the ocean to the huge clean updated condo! The condo had everything we needed including lots of space. The living room had 2 full size couches, a love seat that reclined and an oversized recliner. All the seating and space made it so nice to have family visit for thanksgiving dinner.... More

The year before was not happy but we wanted to try it again. Our room was clean and everything worked. It had everything we needed and we enjoyed the pool, hot tub and the beach was amazing and the front desk was very helpful. Cannot wait to go back

My mom and I had a relaxing vacation together on Mustang Island. We were fortunate enough to find a great condo to stay in during our week long visit to the Port Aransas area. Our accommodations were very clean, beautiful, spacious, and welcoming. The kitchen had all of the amenities and supplies we needed for our stay. The Mayan Princess... More

Great view! We stayed on the 2nd floor and the roof leaked on our last night. Told the front desk, but they didn't seem to care. Gave us towels to soak up the water. The front desk staff was not as friendly as the housekeeping staff. The pools were nice and the beach is a short walk from the condo.

Based on the reviews we knew this place would be a gamble. We travel to Port A yearly and usually get a house with family but had to fly solo this year so chose this place. We checked in the weekend after Labor Day and stayed 4 nights in room 114. To start, I called ahead of time to check... More

This is not a luxury condominium, it is an absolute disgrace. We stayed over Labor Day weekend and would have checked out immediately, but everywhere was fully booked and we couldn't disappoint the children by turning around and driving back to Fort Worth. The condo was absolutely disgusting - peeling wallpaper, graffiti on the wall, worn toilet seat, filthy couch,... More

I will start by saying that we were a long time customers of the Mayan Princess. We had stayed at the property 5 times over the last several years.

People have to remember that many of these rooms are privately owned, and managed. 306 is one of those. The condo was nicer than some 5 star hotels. Updated everything in these units, and many TV's for the kiddos after the beach. Everything about this condo is awesome. The view, the location, everything inside and out. The owner has thought...
