I don't think there is enough I can say about Majahuitas, this was by far the best trip my wife and I have been on. First off I must preface this by saying that this is not your typical Mexico resort. If you are looking to lay by a pool all day and hit up clubs at night this is not the place to stay. If you are a fan of relaxing and enjoying some of the best views in Mexico this is the place to go.
My Wife and I decided to stay here because of a groupon we found and thought it was worth a shot. We started off not knowing what to expect so we only booked 4 nights here to try it out. Needless to say we did not want to leave on the final day and wish we would have booked an extra week., In fact upon returning back to the states we have already started to plan our next trip here next year.
We stayed in Los Arcos Casita, and the view was incrediable. There is no power in the Casita, but there are a few reading lights. We did not use these lights once, each night upon returning from dinner the path and the Casita was lit up with candles. If you need to charge anything there is a generator running for about 8 hours each day in the main building for you to charge your kindles or your cameras.
The service here is unbeatable. I must say the owners, managers, and staff all do their best in making sure this stay is perfect for each person. If there is something you need just ask. Julian was one of the best bartenders and servers I have ever had. Between him and Andre we were never felt like something was missing. I must also thank Margo and Kevin for making Majahuitas feel like home, the whole place does not have the stale feeling you get with most resorts, it's a very welcoming place where everyone interacts. The food was increble as well. there are three meals a day; breakfast at 9:30, lunch at 2:30, and dinner around 8. I am sure you can ask what each meal is, but we had more fun being surprised and not one meal actually disappointed us. Far better than any other all inclusive resort. The Breakfast and Lunch are served on the beach with your significant other; Dinner is served family style for every night but the last where they set up a romantic dinner on the beach.
There is plenty to do here, we did not do the full waterfall hike because of some sunburn, instead we did the short hike which was plenty of fun, and the waterfall was aswesome. After finsihing the hike we stopped in town for one of the best beers I have every had (ice cold on a hot day). We also took Kevin's advise and went zip lining. I would suggest if there is one thing you do its zip lining. I always thought this would be a boring experience, but the staff there is fun and there are 14 different lines. We spent another day paddle boarding and kayaking. As soon as I got on the paddle board, Lady (one of the dogs) jumped on board and made for quite an experience. We saw sting rays swimming in the bay with us, and lots of fish., One afternoon we say a pod of dolphins swimming. Being this far away for the city allowed us to see many animals we dont typically run into in the city.
I cannot thank Margo and Kevin enough for this trip (oh and Julie when she stepped in to give them a day off). The experience was like nothing I can describe. We will be back next year and will continue to return until the day they close (3 years). I almost don't want to write such a great review because I want to keep this place to myself, but I hope that everyone gets to experience this, and I hope that something changes with the government and Majahuitas can stay open for many more years.
Thanks for everything guys! We will be back soon, I already miss the dogs!
