Beautiful resort-- superior and very friendly staff and service! Excellent food! It is quite expensive but worth it for a real treat! You are taken to your suite by boat and you have your own butler! Everyone is so very polite! The pool area is delightful! I would certainly go back there again. You could easily spent your entire time just at the resort.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the 600's. they are ocean front and so close to one of the pools and restaura...

The Rosewood Mayakoba far exceeded my expectations. The accommodation is luxurious and fabulous, the food at all 3 restaurants was outstanding, but what stood out above anything else, was the exceptional level of service that we received. The staff went above and beyond to meet our every need and to ensure that our stay was perfect. The staff are unbelievably friendly and greet you each time they see you as if you have been there for months. The spa is wonderful too. This is one place I will definitely go back to.

This resort really is a nice place beautiful grounds and REALLY nice rooms. The food is just ok. We ate the breakfast buffet every morning, and you can order as many of the food entrees with the buffet as you like, and they have some really great dishes on the menu. SInce we ate the buffet every morning we were not hungry for lunch, but the first day we got there we ate at the beach restaurant and the tacos were pretty good and so was the guacamole, the chips were a little thicker than what Iike but oh well! The dinners we had were just ok too. I was not real thrilled with a couple of my meals but oh well. All in all it was a great place and would consider staying there again, but not sure if I can part with my money that easily for what I thought was pretty good place.

This resort is amazing. Our favourite destination ever! We are still here, 4 nights to go and could not be happier. We have 2 children, 14 and 17 and all the staff have been wonderful, so sincere and friendly. The: food, ambience, rooms, facilities, size and beauty of the resort is unforgettable. We stayed in the Number 300 villa section and it was a great position, we could walk, or ride bikes or hop on one of the golf carts to take us anywhere. The spa is unbelievable and the tequila library is very interesting! The staff are my favourite ever and on our second day welcome us back wherever we go and remember our names! Love it..

Room Tip: All are beautiful...you actually get to ride a boat at check in as they take you to your room!

Amazing place...... great service.This is the first place I can compare to Maldives. I do travell a lot and love staying in 5 * anywhere I go. At least 5 times a year I go on vacation like this one, for a week. It is beautiful resort! Very romantic and wild too. I really enjoy it and will come back! The beach is like in Cabo S. Lucas.

Tops in aesthetics, Rosewood Mayakoba made for an amazing four day getaway. Boutique in scale but with mega amenities, the escort is just large enough to afford extreme privacy. The lagoon rooms (basic) are huge with the most gorgeous bathrooms, outdoor shower and upper deck. Inside, all spaces are well thought out and modernly minimal , but with luxurious textiles angles and curves. The plunge pool and sumptuous outdoor lounges made it hard to leave the room for the outrageously beautiful pools!

I had never been to Mexico, more of a european traveler but went for a friend's birthday.
Wow, this resort was spectacular. So beautiful! Paradise. We went into town also by taxi and it's about 20 minutes away but fun to shop for jewelry and little souvenirs. But you never have to leave the resort if you don't want to. The restaurants are great, the beach is peaceful and the rooms are just gorgeous. Would definitely go back someday.

Room Tip: rooms in walking distance of the pool/beach are great but you can call and they pick u up quickly by...
