We stayed 3 days in March, and wished we had planned for a longer stay. We had a fabulous casita right on the beach (apparently it's the honeymoon suite), spotless and very comfortable, with a little porch, some beach chairs and hamacs right in front. The included breakfast was delicious (fresh fruits, pancakes, eggs), the staff very friendly. They will also make you a light lunch if you don't want to leave the property. There are a few restaurants at a walking distance, or you can drive into the town of Mahahual, about 6K. Mamahual reminded me of Playa del Carmen 30 years ago. Lovely. I suggest arriving in the daylight, as it is a bit confusing in the dark, there is a stretch of beach road (sand) past the village with really nothing, so we were a bit uneasy about that. Aslo, the beach in front of the resort is lovely to look at, but if you don't like seagrass, you have to walk a little while down the beach if you want to go for a swim.
All in all a perfect stay.
