We stayed 5 nights at Rosewood and loved it.
We have been lucky enough to stay in some great beach resorts and we both thought the villas were some if the best we had ever seen. They were incredibly spacious and luxuriously furnished in keeping with the setting. The bathrooms were huge with his and her sinks, large open showers and the biggest hot tub round baths we had seen. There was also an additionally outdoor shower area.
The bed and lounge were super comfy. The outdoor space was excellent- great view of the river in front of us that runs through the mayakoba properties and a great plunge pool which was always hot - perfect for an evening sunset drink.
The resort has a great beach front pool set up and also a quieter beautiful pool area near the main building. We enjoyed spending time at both.
The service throughout the resort including your own personal villa 'host' was excellent and the staff do the most they can to make your stay relaxing.
The only point we think could do with a little improvement is the food - it is fairly costly and whilst the quality is good, there could be a bit more variety. Food is good but not exceptional.
However the nearby Banyan Tree helps with the variety of dinning options.
We would recommend the resort to couples and families.
