We stayed here for a week and loved the sunshine. The Mayan Palace was pretty crowded. We had a hard time finding a chair for the beach each day. All the hallways echo so it was hard to stay asleep once all the drunk people returned from partying or is a child was crying. The restaurants were busy too- there... More

A very large resort, with outstanding staff. Place is well maintained, and everyone is so friendly. Only downside is the drinks are VERY expensive, but we went to the store and bought our own so it wasn't a big deal. They will treat you like a king. We bought a timeshare here, but allocate several hours if you go to... More

I stayed here using a friends time share so I got quite the deal ! With that being said I found the hotel to be very clean. I stayed in a 2 bedroom and there was ample space. There was a small kitchenette with 2 burners. The restaurants were good, not great but good. The drinks were ok, most very... More

Spent Christmas at the Mayan Palace. Lots of activities, beautiful pool and nice beach. Rooms were spacious and clean over looking the jungle. Do not attend the timeshare presentation, it is not worth the huge amounts of pressure and ruining a day in paradise. I would recommend this resort for a fun filled, relaxing getaway.

We were lucky and had a unit in bldg 6 so reasonable walk to pool and beach, beach is rocky as others note, but a ten minute walk to the left we found a nice swimmable beach.... More

We just got back from a week at the Mayan Palace Riviera Maya. What an amazing resort! There will be many who write and are critical of the timeshare hoopla. All I can say is, it's their choice whether they attend a sales presentation and spend their valuable vacation time behind a table listening to the slick salespeople. And they... More

We really love the pool here, great for kids! There is also a frequent happy hour for adults. The beach is nice but the ocean here is not really swimmable. It is convenient to restaurants, which is nice

We just returned from a one week stay at the Mayan Palace. The property is huge and is immaculately maintained. The rooms are kept extremely clean and the turn down service is great! The staff are very friendly and helpful. Pools were always very clean and many daily activities are available. Lounge chairs can be hard to find, some people... More

We just spent a week at the Mayan Palace. I have to start by saying that I am amazed at the upkeep of such a large property. There is not a detail that is overlooked. The rooms, the pool, restaurants and the grounds are immaculate. The staff is very friendly and eager to please. The service is top notch. This... More
