Amazing place to stay

We just loved our stay at Almaplena. It was the perfect place to be "unplugged" for a week. The restaurant is decent but gets old quick. The rooms are nice and the perfect size for two. The only trouble we had was a broken window so it was super hot at night due to no cross breeze. I would make... read 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

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...
