Let me begin by giving some context to our week at the Iberostar Maya. We started traveling to the Mayan Riviera before we had children, almost 10 year ago, and we have stayed at the Royal Hideaway, Aventura Palace, Iberostar Paraiso Beach, and at the Royal Suites at the Palladium. While we enjoy other types of vacations as well (mostly... More

This was out third trip to the Iberostar Maya in 3 years and our fourth trip to an Iberostar resort. As always we had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean, the grounds were beautiful and the staff was amazing. You will not find staff more friendly or attentive than at the Maya. It is a great family place. We... More

My husband and I stayed at the Maya from 8/10 - 8/17 and had a great time. It was sunny and hot every day. Here is a breakdown of the resort, excursions, airport, etc. The Resort: It is huge. It was booked to capacity during our stay, but never felt crowded. Rooms - are huge, clean and smelled ok. All... More

I read so many reviews of the resorts in this area that is nice to finally be able to contribute. Let me say that my wife and I just got back from getting married at the Maya and it was one of the best weeks of our lives. We had 24 other family members with us and all week we... More

We had a wonderful time at the Iberostar. Tons of activities, incredible pools and good entertainment. Watch out for the dive shop though! Yes, we had a great diving experience, but they practically charge you per breath you take! Most places charge around $9-15 for the second dive on a 2 tank dive whereas Dressell charges full setup again. Two... More

We had a great time at our recent stay at the Paraiso Maya. We did check out the other hotels in the complex and found them to be just as nice as the Maya, and I know they were much cheaper. We had paid extra for a Superior Jr. suite and I wouldn't recommend that. We had also requested adjoining... More

Firstly - my usual caveat ... you need to judge this hotel in context ... it would not be a five star European or US star, nor is it Sandals or Beaches - but it is most certainly a five star Mexican family resort. I'm going to avoid duplicating what others have said where possible - suffice it to say... More
