Stayed at this hotel for three days in March. On entering you feel like you're in another world - it's beautiful, well designed and would be great for some sort of romantic or bridal party getaway. It's about 5 mins from the main part of town by car and is definitely great for service. Ill list you the pros and cons...
PROS: You get free, decent, welcome drinks and the staff are always great! Buffet breakfast is fabulous and the hotel serves free afternoon tea daily. Pool has amazing views and staff give you free water whenever you come down for a swim. Rooms are large with balconies - we were upgraded for free to a room with two balocines overlooking the lush grounds. Internet is free (although reception can be very poor at times) and they have an hourly shuttle service.
CONS: The shuttle only runs until 5.20pm which means you're stranded at the hotel until dinner unless you walk 20mins from the hotel down busy roads or organise a driver. Not grear for elderly or unfit people. Taxis are no where to be found in the town so you would have to pick up a random driver from the side of the street which I tend not to reccomend. If you do stay at the hotel for dinner the prices are high and meal sizes small. We got room service one night and, to put it plainly, it sucked. I paid $8AU (plus 25% service charge) for a tiny crepe which was made to sound delux and plentiful. It definitely disappointed me. I had a similar experience at Hard Rock so probably stay away from room service wherever you go! Head to a local restaurant instead. Anyway... The Maya pool, although relaxing, wasn't great for sun bakers due to the hotels forestry location. I found myself having to lay on the ground in an awkward position to get some sun. But of course that isn't a problem for everyone! The only other thing I would say is that the spa is extremely expensive and you do find a lot of ants etc plaguing the rooms due to the forest type location.
Overall, id come back to the hotel for relaxation... but not for food, cheap prices or excitement.
