Having stayed at Grand Mayan on our previous visits to Mexico, the kids were not too impressed when they got to this resort because of a singular pool instead of acres of water, but by the end of the trip, we all felt that this was one of our more memorable trips.
Perfect location. Driving into town took 5 minutes. Local bus would have taken maybe 10. Driving south to the Zoo as well as the Botanical Garden took 10 and 20 minutes respectively.
Right on the water, and as many others have mentioned, an awesome Ocean view with great sunsets from every room on or above the 4th floor. Major bonus was that EVERY morning at about 8:00 AM, a family of dolphins came to feed not too far from the private lagoon of the hotel. And the private beach and lagoon provided for wonderful experiences for the whole family. The catering at the pool and the beach was good (reasonably good food and excellent service).
The 1-bedroom apartment was reasonably big, and the kitchen was great. And the beds were quite comfortable. WiFi worked, but they limit the number of active devices to 3 per room.
The place would earn 5 stars if they would upgrade the rooms with newer mirrors and other amenities.
