Always a crap shot when booking a holiday for the first time in a resort for mega bucks....and then to read the really mixed reviews, we thought maybe we had made a mistake. NOT AT ALL!
The Maya Beach Resort was wonderful.....a true paradise. So maybe the booze was not top shelf. After your first mosquito coast, it no longer mattered. Food was great, especially in the speciality restaurants; our favourite was the Japanese! Our room was more than adequate on the ground floor. The grounds were beautiful; a true garden. Birds everywhere. The white sand beach was super; a few rocks here and there but fish and turtles in the crystal clear warm water. The staff was friendly, courteous and respectful. Shows in the theatre were fun. Access by excursion to Xcaret, Tulum, Coba and Chichèn Itzà was easy and fairly priced. For two weeks in the sun, we got real value.
