“Excellent food and excellent drinks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012 via mobile

What a beautiful gem off the beaten path in Mahahual, Mexico. Just outside the main town, it's a quaint place owned by a an American family who know how to make you feel welcome. We stopped here on a drive down the coast and ate an amazing dinner and some tasty margaritas. My boyfriend ordered a grouper that had just been caught this morning and I had a stuffed shrimp pineapple that was out of this world. Definitely worth the trip. Don't miss it.

We arrived at maya luna for the third year and felt like every year immediately at home. The bungalows are simple, but nicely decorated, nice beds and as always we spend a lot of time on the roof deck, sunbathing and in the late afternoon having a drink on our roof deck. In the evening we had dinner every evening in the maya Luna restaurant, I personally love their shrimp dish, prepared with curry and garlic. The maya Luna pineapple dish was as good as always. Had some long walks with the dog, she is amazing and very friendly. Had a great stay again, and will be back again. an recommend it to everybody whois looking for a lazy stay at a quiet beach.

Room Tip: If you are a diver, stay in room chinchorro

We picked Maya Luna because it was away from the town. Although the road on the beach was bad, it was the first hotel and all by itself. The beach was clean and uncrowded and all was quiet. Our reason for the area was snorkling annd for that it was perfect. The reef is close and Maya Luna has kayaks to make life even easier. Carolien was a perfect hostess telling us where the best parts were and after we got back, keeping our glasses full and conversation rolling. The rooms are beautifully private wiith an upper level for tanning and contemplating. The bed was large and comfortable and the fan above plus the sound of the surf had us sleeping in moments.But that was after dinner, and what a meal. Jan had made up one of his specialties, shrimps with curry, cream, cognac and garlic; fabulous
I'm only upset that we had only booked two nights but we will definately be back.

Room Tip: all the rooms are good

The owners really make you feel at home, almost being parental. The staff is extremely friendly, the atmosphere is chilled out and remote, for those who search the quiet and peaceful. Restaurant is fantastic!

We took a cruise last week (cruising not being our typical style of trip, but it was a bit of a work boondoggle) and our ship docked at Costa Maya. Another TripAdvisor reviewer's post inspired us to forgo the port adventures here, rent a golf cart with our boys and just head south. Best decision of the week. We ended up at Maya Luna, where the new manager and his young sons greeted our family warmly and provided us a relaxing afternoon of sun, sea, hammocks, drinks and good food -- perfect beach day. If we return by car to this neck of the woods, we will definitely stay in this little slice of paradise.

Spend the day here away from the cruise ship crowd. We had the beautiful beach to ourselves. Gorgeous amenities, great food, and properly made margaritas (fresh squeezed limes. You'd think that would be standard in Mexico. Good luck finding someone that makes it that way). We had a great time and will certainly return for an extended stay.
