After reading reviews on various sites, I decided to spend the port day at Costa Maya escaping from the "General Population" (prisonspeak!) of the ship. Through email arrangements ahead of time, the taxi at the port of Costa Maya was waiting. There are a number of hammocks, canopy-like sitting areas, and masseuse areas on a small, pristing white-sand beach with... More

Last week we cruised and stopped in costa maya, mexico. Beforehand, I did some research and found this all-inclusive resort. It took a bit of a taxi ride to get there but the fare was included. Drinks and lunch was also included as well as lounge chairs, bathrooms and showers. Needless-to-say when we got there we were suprised to find... More

Almaplena Eco Beach resort looked like a nice place to stop as we were exploring the beach road. We sat just inside the deck area as it was a cool day, and ordered a drink each and lunch. Sad to say that our lunch was not edible. We ordered chicken fajitas. The chicken was obviously heated in a microwave (perhaps... More

Best day ever! We booked Almaplena as an all-inclusive resort for the day as a cruiseship excursion from the port of Costa Maya. Included in the price for the day was our taxicab fare to and from the port, all beverages, lunch, beach access, shade and beach toys for the kids. We were a group of 6 traveling together. Grandparents,... More

Recent cruise - found Almaplena on tripadvisor and made reservations for 4. Communication with the owners was very professional and timely. They emailed everything we needed to know before we arrived for the day in Costa Maya. We got off the ship and walked to the taxi location, a 20 minute ride, and we were greeted my Andrea and a...

The lunch that we had at Almaplena Beach Resort was fantastic. My son-in-law really loved the hot salsa. Monica and her husband were gracious hosts.

My wife and I were visiting Mahahual for the first time, and decided to explore the beach south of town. We were having a great time sight- seeing on the beach road, passing houses and beach hotelsbarsrestaurants when we reached a newer one and decided to stop and have dinner. Almaplena had apparently just opened a few weeks earlier. The... More

Delightful couple, great outdoor atmosphere located right on the beach and good Itatalian Food for a reasonable price. We made reservations for two more nights. We will also stop in for breakfast on the beach. We're so glad to have another exceptional restaurant in Mahahual! A very classy place. A little bit of Italy on the Yucatan Beach!
