Right on the water and convenient to downtown as well as the boat to Catalina, which is why I discovered the Maya. The Maya is fun and very well done with multiple private seating areas inside and out...fire pits, waterfalls, curtained pool side cabanas, large balconies off the rooms, etc. The staff was friendly and efficient and the gym was impressive. Outdoor dining on the water side under a huge canopy was relaxing and delicious. In the evening, we strolled along the water through the park and dipped into the Queen Mary (at one time the worlds largest luxury passenge liner) which was really interesting. Our water side room was very quiet at night...only the sound of gently rocking boats in the marina. We will stay here again.
