We recently stayed at the Mayan Palace Marina in Puerto Vallarta for 2 weeks in a 2 bedroom/2bath until facing the pool. The reception and check in were very friendly and welcoming. We did sign up for the time share presentation since we were going to be in PV for one month so we had some extra time. The timeshare people were professional and treated us quite nicely. The Mayan property in Nuevo is enormous and just beautiful. The pools are heated unlike the cold pools at the Mayan in the marina. The breakfast in their new facility was outstanding. We did not purchase since it didn't meet our personal requirements, but enjoyed the visit at the property. We received 4 massages and a 10% discount at Mayan in the marina which was much appreciated. We left PV at 9am for Grand Mayan, and the whole presentation lasted until 2PM. After that we spent the rest of the day enjoying the the pools at the Grand Mayan.
The Mayan in the marina is just lovely with an excellent location. The grounds are outstanding and the public areas are a delight; especially the sunset bar by the beach with ocean front sofas.
I think that the biggest asset of the property is the staff. They are all just lovely with such a kind attitude.
Our 2 bedroom unit was large, immaculate, and well stocked. The MB had a king sized bed and ensuite bath with balcony overlooking the pool. The guest bedroom is the lock off unit and had two double beds and an ensuite bathroom. The living room had 2 king sized sofas which made into beds. The kitchen is more like at kitchenette with 2 ring electric stove and a small frig and microwave. However, it works just well for breakfast and lunch and is well stocked with crockery and utensils,etc
The beach is quite nice and private. The hotel rakes it and has a number of palapas and lounging areas. There was no problem finding a place to sit near the beach.
The only negative which I have about the property is the cold pools. Considering that I stayed at two other properties in PV during the month which had heated pools and considering that the Mayan property in Nuevo Vallarta had heated pools, then the property does not deserve a 5star rating with cold pools.
Unfortunately, I do not see anyone from managment addressing this problem on this forum or in person at the property. If I was a prospective buyer then I would be reluctant to purchase at the property if this is standard operating procedure.
I would return to the property mainly for the lovely staff and beautiful grounds..
