Grand Sirenis Riviera Mayan or Mayan Beach?

Hi,

Is there a difference between these 2 sister resorts? Planning a trip with 2 kids in Jan. age 11 & 9 & a have the option of both. Mayan Beach is $100 more for mirage suite. Any opinions?

Thanks,

Corinne

They are two side of the same resort and they share all amenities. I'd book whichever was cheaper.

From what I have figured out....depending who you book with determines which side you stay at....but like they said above, you have full access to everything...unless of course you get their VIP (can't remember what they call it).

Air Canada throws in a few extras and calls it 'a mirage suite'

Not worth it imho

We are going in Jan to Grand Sirenis and opted for Maya Beach, there are a few perks but the biggest is that you have a private shuttle to and from the resort which could save about an hour or so considering the distance you have to travel. You are also closer to the beach and get 30 minutes free wifi. To me that was worth the extra $70. Hope this helps.

From the airport to the resort. The cheaper package includes an airport transfer too but it stops at other resorts along the way and you end up waiting for those passengers to get off at their resorts first.

Is this the Mirage suite through Air Canada?
