Condo unit 102 was very attractive and the Mayan Princess was a lovely beach front condo resort. Our family occupied two units next to each other. There are three pools, a hot tub and a board walk to the beach. Great restaurants are only a short drive away. We loved sitting on the patio and enjoying the pelicans flying over...

I am guessing this place was fantastic 20 yrs ago. We were in room 315 which was nicer and more spacious than the photos we found online. While it probably has the biggest shower in the MP it only had 2 shower heads and a ton of space to stand where no water would hit you, a more modern design...

We left MN on 1/5/17 with the temp at -10f. We arrived at the Mayan Princess on 1/9/17 with the air conditioning running in the car. Get rid of the jeans and get the shorts out. This was our 4th year at the Mayan Princess in condo 309. We were there for 8 weeks and already have reservations for 2018....

ROOM 108 was GREAT! LOVE THE JACUZZI TUB! LOVED it being right on the beach and being able to walk right down to the water! It was totally not busy the weekend we went and so we pretty much had the beach to ourselves anytime we were down on it, which was early morning, watching the sun rise, and in...

We stayed on the bottom floor in a 2 bedroom with 2 bathrooms. Room 109. It was beautiful! Huge garden tub in the master bedroom. Sleeper sofa. Very nice kitchen with everything necessary. There are some rules to follow but we didn't have any problems following them. It was a little crowded at night trying to park but that is...

Not sure where to start.... first off dead bugs as soon as I walk in the door... I mean really they knew I was coming... I feel like they should do a little sweep right before check in time... There were a total of 9 dead bugs.... 1 no big deal but that many right when I walk in .......

Absolutely beautiful ocean view and nice balcony to enjoy the view! The condo was spacious and very clean, with plenty of parking out front. There were three pools to choose from, which our 5-year old loved. The pool-side grills were nice as well. We were there in June 2016 and the beaches weren't overly crowded. I would definitely go back.

Let's begin by saying we are very impressed by upgrades that have been done to the units and overall property since 2013. Have been visiting The Mayan Princess for about 11 years. First visit was 2006; had a wonderful time. Came back in 2013 and was deeply disappointed. When we returned in 2016, we were thoroughly glad to see how...

The Mayan Princess is wonderfully located right on the beach. All the units have an ocean view. The pool is heated in the winter to 78! It was so great to be able to swim in December! It is a great place to stay to visit Port Aransas or North Padre and only a very short drive to Corpus. Because...

Room was awesome, staff was awesome. They could have done a better job making the weather outside a little nicer. I won't disclose which room we were in because I don't want anyone else to request it and potentially make me get another room.
