Had the most amazing time staying here in March and the beach restaurant was incredible. The green juice served with breakfast was the best juice/smoothie i have ever tasted. Is anyone able to share the recipe for this green juice please?

My fiance and I have traveled the world including lots of resorts & homes throughout Mexico. We have been to the Riveria Maya many times previously; hence we decicded to take break for a few years from Playa de Carmen since it was just too busy. Recently we decided at the last minute to book into the Fairmont Mayakoba over the Christmas Holidays and much to our delight we were overwhelmed with such incredible gracious and generous hospitality. From the monent we arrived Eduardo, the front desk manager greeted us in perfect English and asked us how our travels were. He was kind and genuinely interested. Quickly he surmised that we had something more in mind than just a std room and went to bat for us in securing an upgrade. Needless to say that when we arrived at the Camaleom Suite (aka the Presidential Suite) which was beachfront with a beaurtful pool and luxurious accommodations, we were blown away ! To be honest we could not have been happier with the suite, that is UNTIL we met the most amazing and dedicated hospitality employee ever, who also happended to be our very own butler, Mr David Loranzo. His kindness and willness to "serve" never waivered and no request was too small (or silly..) From shopping for gifts to bringing fresh towels and ice, he set a very high bar for the rest of the staff. David was an intregal part of this vacation being so special. BUT...it didnt stop there. Daily we met Mar (she was part of the transport team) as well as Edgar who was a valet out front. They made it ther mission to ensure we made every reservation on time and there was nothing left to be asked for. Again two very valuable and decicated employees. This was a recurring theme and canidly 6 nights completed spoiled us for any future vacation. Mind you not all can afford or NEED the Camaleon Suite but I promise you we will not stay elsewhere on Quintana Roo. If your travels take you South of the Border, give the Fairmont a long hard look and dont be afraid to ask (and pay) for the upgrade. Well worth it. We will be back. Tripp & Kendra

We had the most perfect stay at Mayakoba to celebrate a friends wedding. And Daniel went way above and beyond for us. We lost a cell phone during the trip and Daniel made it his personal mission to get it back. Even searching on his day off. His attention to detail made this our perfect trip. Thank you Daniel. We will be back.

My family and I had a wonderful visit to the Fairmont Mayakoba. We couldn’t be more pleased with the service received. We were fortunate enough to stay in the villas along the ocean. Our butler Kevin was extremely attentive and gave us his personal cellphone for any requests. We saw Erik on the beach daily and he provided us terrific service. Lastly, we had a fabulous dinner (twice) with the team at the Korean BBQ. They were wonderful hence why we visited twice. Go. They will treat you to the most fabulous dinner with your toes in the sand. We will see you again hopefully fall. The Kennedys

This was my second visit to the Fairmont Mayakoba and the first since it has been owned by Accor. We were a family of three - two adults and a 4.5 year old. We opted for the all inclusive option. Our room was a casita that had a jungle view. Overall, room is a bit date, but aside from that, it’s big, clean, terrific washroom and nice little balcony. We were located pretty close to the kids pool area - which we liked with our little one. If we ever forgot anything - it was quick for us to go back. Food and drinks - very good. Is everything amazing - no, some things are better than others, but overall the food is very good. It is not your typical all inclusive - everything is a la carte (except an incredible buffet breakfast). Drinks were outstanding and they had an incredible selection. I would skip the Korean bbq pop up restaurant on the beach. Beach and pools- it was windy for some of the time we were there - so only used the beach a few times. Also beautiful, lots of chairs with palapas and friendly service. Pools are all great, if not a bit cool. Family fun - they have a family pool with a water slide and kids just end up making friends and having fun with one another. The pools are a little chilly - but they have a heated pool that we used in the mornings until things really warmed up. Highly recommend the boat tour - it was awesome. We travel quite a bit - we try to avoid all-inclusive - but we would come back here yet again. We were at the Crane Resort in Barbados in December, and we thought overall this place was better. I’m not sure where the negative reviews come from to be honest.
