Chicago, Illinois1 contribution
We visited Rosewood back in March right before Covid took over…landing back in Chicago just in time for the stay at home order to go into effect. With so much going on in the world, we forgot to write a review but we had the most amazing time at Rosewood. The property is lush and gorgeous. We were upgraded to an over-water suite and the room was truly extraordinary. The design esthetic is great. I don’t want to give away all the secrets, but there are so many lovely little surprises. Our butlers, Jose and Ana took exceptional care of us…checking in to make sure our every need was taken care of. Jose made a few suggestions to do the beach party and food fest and they were both so much fun! The food is really good…and we have pretty high standards. Loved the TJ’s tacos so much that we recreated them at home, with help from Chef Juan Pablo’s instagram video. It was wonderful to meet Daniel and his dog Snoopy at the cocktail reception. Oh! And there are pelotons in the gym, which we used every day! It was odd to feel so comfortable, safe and peaceful during such an uncertain time in the world, but it was a breath of fresh air and we went home ready to face the pandemic and our new reality. We’re so grateful for the care we were given and can’t wait to return to Rosewood.

Where do I begin? From start to finish this was the trip of a lifetime! At Rosewood Mayakoba we received the best service and most gracious hospitality we have ever experienced, and I have stayed at many luxury properties all over the world. The entire staff went out of their way to accommodate us and anticipate our every need. There were so many special touches; from the welcome tequila drink to the thoughtful note left for us after we returned from a day Akumal Bay...we felt truly special. Our butler Carlos seemed to appear out of nowhere to suggest dining plans or just check in with us to see how we were enjoying our stay. I can’t praise him enough! The food was top notch and for us the highlight was the Thursday evening beach grill. The décor, meal, service, staff and music felt like a magical dream and we never wanted it to end. The resort itself is stunning; all the accommodations and the lush surroundings were breathtaking. During these uncertain times for travelers, Rosewood Mayakoba did everything to make us feel at ease and safe. The housekeeping staff kept our casita spotless and all other areas were pristine as well (restaurants, pools, beach area and spa). One of our favorite memories of the trip is all the staff continuously greeting us with “Welcome Home”; as it truly felt that way, like we were part of the family and we cannot wait to return. We are truly blessed to have experienced this type of warm, generous hospitality. The staff of Rosewood Mayakoba created memories for my Mother and I that will last a lifetime! I highly recommend this resort...you won’t be disappointed!

When I read reviews, I am always a little skeptical. With the Rosewood Mayakoba, I was really surprised about the exceptional service that exceeded what I read on their already excellent reviews. What I was most Impressed with is the employees, and I am not sure how they are able to maintain such a high level with virtually every employee, not just a few. I have stayed at 5 star+ hotels exclusively for the last 10 years all over the world, and this was definitely 5 star+.

We stayed 5 nights in the Lagoon Studio Suite King (room 212). After the hotel we originally planned to go to pushed back their opening because of COVID 19 we decided to book a stay at Rosewood Mayakoba. We booked the private transfer with Rosewood and we were very happy with it. Worth the extra expense of booking the transfer direct. Driver was waiting right outside the terminal and there was snacks, water and Corona waiting in the SUV. Check in was processed very fast and we were headed off to the boat for the lagoon transfer to our suite. We loved the Mezcal welcome gift and the chips and guacamole waiting for us. The suggested mix drink with the Mezcal is worth the effort. The room location was great for us as we were close to the front of the property and it was only a bike ride away to the beach. Also, there is no suite across from your pool, so it was great for privacy. We visited the golf course and played a round of golf. While I am not a good golfer by any stretch, it is worth bringing your clubs (or renting) and spending the money. It is cheaper to play at a PGA style course in Mayakoba than it is to play at TPC San Antonio; and TPC cannot match the beauty of the course. Also, don’t miss the Thursday night dinner on the beach. They have live music and family style food that is amazing! When staying at a beach resort, how does a hotel differentiate from anyone else is service and food. From the beach service (Diego, Arturo) to the bar (Luis), the employees went above and beyond our expectations. We now know what 5-star treatment really is! The food and drinks are top notch as well. Since this is not an all-inclusive, you do end up having to pay for food and drink but never did we balk at the cost because we felt we got our money’s worth every time. While we are partial to Excellence resorts over the years, we learned that there is a different level of service and experience from Rosewood Mayakoba. Next to Quepos Costa Rica, this was one of our favorite places to stay! We already booked a return trip!

I can’t say enough good things about this place. We went August 15-20th. It is fabulous. Every think is beautiful including the food, service and the people. It is my favorite place to be. The rooms are so nice and you have everything you need. We just got back from Vegas and it was miserable and the people were so rude. Save your money and go to the Rosewood it puts the Wynn to shame.
