My son and I stayed at Vindanta Riviera Maya at the Mayan Palace the week of August 6-August 13, 2016. My son and I had a blast! Everything you need to have a memorable time is at this resort. You never have to leave. The service was wonderful. The resort staff attended to our every need. Housekeeping cleaned our comfortable... More

Overall this is an excellent place to vacation. The different restaurants are 5 star. The attention to your needs is quite good. You will be asked to attend a breakfast meeting in a fabulous buffet restaurant. You well be asked to leave a tip. Do not purchase any of the properties unless money is no problem. I have b en...

We stay at The Grand Riviera Maya in May of 2015. The resort was beautiful, service excellent, cabana boys kept the 2 for 1 drinks flowing. Food service was great at the restaurants. We attended a show in the open area, where the buffets are and it was very good. Treated special from the time we were picked up at... More

I stayed at the Mayan Palace for my vacation and had a room on the 3rd floor of building 3. The room had wonderful service every day and were kept very clean. The location was also great because it was among the buildings closest to the pool/beach area. The resort itself was beautiful. The pool areas were very large, and... More

Overall a comfortable stay, the room is big and spacious with all the kitchen amenities and the pool is huge! The restaurants are good and the prices a bit high but not ridiculous. There is not much activities going on but the size of the hotel helps make it avoid the overcrowded feeling that you get sometimes in the summer.... More

The Mayan Palace is the "ground floor" accommodation for Vidanta Vacations members. It is by no means awful, just a bit outdated, small, and pales in comparison to the other resorts on the property. It is a long way from the beach, pool, and restaurants, necessitating use of the tram system. We never had to wait more than 15 minutes... More

The Resort was absolutely beautiful, the beach was perfect and the staff was the friendliest I've ever encountered. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit, on the 3rd floor in building 14. Let me start by saying my wife and I are in our late 40's with teenage girls. We don't mind walking a bit. You'll read that the pool... More

I read a lot of reviews prior to coming and I can honestly tell you, the worse part was being mobbed straight off the airport with timeshare salespeople up until our check in, which was also done by timeshare peeps. We kept saying "no thank you" to them. We had lined up the free shuttle to Mayan Palace and it... More

I visited here recently and let me tell you it SUCKED. This is the only word I can use to describe this place. Just downright sucky!!! This resort is huge and the only way to get around is by shuttle which supposedly comes every 15 minutes it's very hit and miss as far as punctuality. Why they thought that having... More
