The Mayan Palace or Vidanta is a time share resort. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The pool is one of the largest I have ever seen. The gym is the best resort gym I ever worked out in. The spa and services are amazing also. Drinks and food is served at the pool throughout the day and there... More

We stayed with some friends in a two bedroom room. They exchanged into this resort using a week from their time share in Cabo. This is a nice place, with a great pool area, and an executive golf course site. The down side might be is that the rooms are laid out in a single line away from the main... More

We traded our Marriott Timeshare to come the Mayan Palace Riviera Mayan. This was one of the places available w a 2 bedroom and kitchen and that was important for our budget. This has been a nice place to relax. The staff have been very polite and helpful. The resort is actually several resorts together so the property is HUGE!!... More

We stayed at the Grand Luxxe, which I believe to be the high end of the 3-4 hotels within the Vidanta complex. My father owns a time share here so I don't know how you'd arrange a rental on your own, but we had a Master Suite which has two king suites, a kitchen/living room & a separate sitting area... More

We had a our family reunion at the resort and we had a wonderful time! Sure the weather sucked the first 2 days as we got caught in what seemed like a mansoon type weather. But we are BC folks who is used to rain so it didn't dampen our spirits and we hung out at the pool anyway. I'm... More

If you thought you experience a well together timeshare, give yourself a chance to stay at the Mayan Palace. This is the upscale of timeshares in the Mexican Riviera Maya. Like all timeshares you have to pay for the meal plan portion, but the accommodations are absolutely beautiful and the layout as well. Great beach and great atmosphere.

Prior to my arrival I kept in contact with concierge to see if I could get a room that was closer to pool because I have back problems. Upon arrival to Cancun Airport I made my way outside and met up with hotels transport company. I waited approx 30 minutes for my van to fill since it's a shared ride.... More

So my friends and I went on a girls vaca to this property this month. I will start by saying the property is very nice. My issues with the property (and why they received a 3 star) is totally based on the customer service. We had a 1st floor room (which I hate), but we were told there were not... More

This resort is Hugh. Really great pool area. Staff are VERY nice. Beach? Not really beachy..lots of rocks and seaweed. Depending on where your room is or how active you are, you could be in for a really long hike. Or you can try to catch a cart ride. I was in bldg 11..right by the lobby. Good for that... More
