The Grand Mayan at Vidanta Riviera Maya

When you stay at The Grand Mayan Riviera Maya, you have access to the magical world of Vidanta Riviera Maya. Here a luxury vacationing meets the pristine natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea and Mayan jungle. The days are filled with adventure and relaxation, and the nights bring excitement and fun. Spend your days sipping your favorite cocktail by the breathtaking Mayan Sanctuary pool or on the pure white beach overlooking the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Maybe play a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus golf course or stroll through the pristine jungle on the wooden pathways. Visit the flamingo and crocodile sanctuaries. Enjoy a tequila massage in the Brio Spa, take a fitness class, or just lounge. At night, Vidanta Riviera Maya comes alive—dance to some Latin beats by the beach, enjoy live music, and party at the Mexican Fiesta. But make sure you see the most talked-about attraction in Riviera Maya—Cirque du Soleil JOYÀ.

Our first night was not great. Our room was on the cart path, very noisy. Moved the next day across the hall, much quieter! We were placed in the unit 12 block, too far from anything. My suggestion would be not to go above unit 7. Our first impression was not great, but the

My boyfriend and I marked a few items off our bucket list on this trip. We had such an amazing experience. The resort is HUGE! So bring walking shoes. However they do have golf cart type transports that run about every ten minutes and will take you to wherever you need to go. Bu

My friend Pat and I checked this place out and had a blast. Made a couple buddies in the “Joy Squad” Dani and Alejandro. They had a lot of energy and were a lot of fun to hang around and play games with. They were always in high spirits and livened our days up. The resort is huge

Great pool, great restaurants, well-organized maintenance and service. The hugely spacious grounds are beautiful, and the beach is nicely kept. We go 2-3 times per year. There are several less popular weeks, which make it very mellow.

We are from Sarasota Florida so many of our friends at the Grand Mayan ask us why come here? The weather is almost the same and the palm trees and animals too. Well, we love the pool, the restaurants, and the strolling fun in Playa del Carmen. This was our 3rd time here -- 201

Are there any meal coupons or plans
No food plan. We stayed at this resort in early November. We ate ate the restaurants a never really had a bad wait. Of course, we did not try and eat when the dinner rush was on. We would either eat a little early or have a snack and eat a little later. We cooked some meals in our room. The breakfast buffet at the Lago was exceptional ! A little pricey, but we went at 10 am and made it a brunch - almost too full to eat dinner. Highly recommend the Mexican Fiesta that they had on Thursday night - dinner, drinks and entertainment for one price ! Others we talked to said the Green Break was good and we ate at a taco place that was in a open air setting with multiple types of restaurants - there were 6 of us and I think we waited maybe 5 minutes for a table.

Some reviews have mentioned a "Resort Fee" of $31.00 per person per day. Is this true? Can anyone confirm and elaborate.We are there in February on a RCI timeshare exchange.
In reading numerous comments, seems that there is a new charge. Unsure if this pertains to existing owners/members or to guests that traded for the resort? Will be there Xmas 2018 and will see. The donation amount was $15 - $30 dollars, but you can ask to not pay it. As for my understanding, the funds received helps provide services to the employees' families and to develop programs for the less fortunate in Mexico. For me, a good cause and I am grateful to be able to stay at one of the best timeshare facilities in Mexico. Rest and relaxation!

Hello. Can someone tell me what I can expect to pay for dining/drinking per person? (six of us going, thinking I should have prepared better!) Also, how much is the "resort fee" (this is just heard about!) Also, does anyone know how much a taxi would be to go to the town? Thank you so much in advance
please contact us at 1-800-292-9446

"Accept no rooms above 7, too far to walk to the amenities."
"I suggest the room staff ensure the A/C is working right before guests arrive."
"We like buildings 5-7 or 1-3"
"Get close to the beach. "
"you need to install sound proof doors; the doors that connects to the next room you can hear everything. And you don’t sleep at all."
