We stayed for 2 weeks at Playa Maya in a top floor room with balcony and sea view. It really suited our needs for pure relaxation, being right on the beach and so close to so many bars and restaurants.
The staff were very efficient and courteous, be it serving breakfast, putting out sun-loungers or cleaning the room (with much-pictured towel animals!). The room itself was clean, with a big comfy bed and good air-con, with fridge provided and unlimited drinking water on tap.
Main room for improvement would be to upgrade the internet and tv - internet was very unreliable and slow at best, while the tv lacked for english-language channels among the 80+ available.
