Rosewood Mayakoba is truly wonderful. It is built into the natural surroundings (mangroves, lagoons, beach) in an unobtrusive manner so that it reveals its beauty as you bicycle through (or take a boat or golf cart). The service is impeccable - each room is assigned a butler and the butlers are so helpful and informative and gracious. The waitstaff at the restaurants greet guests by name and it feels intimate despite having many rooms. In addition to the beautiful beach and pools at the hotel, there are incredible activities in this area of Mexico. Our teenage kids loved the underground cenotes, snorkeling with sea turtles in their natural habitat, and visiting the Mayan ruins. The snorkeling is great - there is a tremendous reef along the coast with so much to see. One can relax completely on the deck of one's room and by the pool one day and be zip lining the next day. The only area that we felt could improve was the food - it is good but not great. This was true at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba as well (which is also lovely but a little more corporate feeling). We have had much better food at the great resorts in Cabo and Zihuataneo. The food in this region seems a bit more bland. The beaches, natural beauty, and variety of activities in this area, however, far outweigh the difference in food.
