The best beach in Mahahual!

Almaplena is far from the town, is like 11 km in a road that is not in the best conditions, but is not the worst road either. From Mahahual town it takes you like 15 or 20 min in a regular car to get there, but once you're there, you can enjoy the softer sand of all Mahahual, with km... read more

What a wonderful place! We spent the day here while in port on the NCL Star. It was easy to get to, just a short taxi ride, and a great way to spend the day. At first the weather looked cloudy but soon after arriving the sun came out and it was a beautiful day. Massages on the beach can... More

Walked down the beach with a full moon rising to this little boutique inn on Christmas Eve. Seven courses awaited us as we were seated on the outdoor balcony overlooking the Caribbean. Started with Quiche Loren and marinated Salmon, moved on to Gnocchi, Italian Cannelloni and Samba marinated fish (little strong on the liquor for this dish) with a shrimp... More

Hubby and I had a delicious meal. We had chips, salsa, fresh guacamole, fish tacos, chicken tacos, and beef tacos. We ate on the porch facing the beach. It was a relaxing lunch!

Paid for a day on the beach & loved it! Easily found our cab outside of the port area. 20-minute drive ended at a beautiful small resort. Quiet beach with refreshing drinks. Water was murky but refreshing. Had a lunch that was plentiful, fresh and delicious. Friendly staff. Would do it again! Returned to the ship in plenty of time.

This is hard for me because the resort itself was immaculate, the service was exactly what you want - they were there when you neede/wanted them, but led you alone to relax. The faculty and the grounds were idyllic - white powder sand and plenty of lounge chairs that were placed well away from any others. The beer was cold... More

What a spectacular place the Almaplena Eco Resort & Beach Club is in Mahahual, Mexico. The owners were warm and wonderful. Even when a slight problem came up, they got right on top of it and solved it! The beach was marvelous and clean and so were the bathroom facilities and the cute shower. The entire environment was laid out... More

This is a breathtaking beach and everything is very comfortable at the resort. My only issues are that the service wasn't all that great once you were situated and I thought the food was good but not remarkable. However, if you're looking for a secluded, stunningly beautiful spot, this is the place.

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
