Stayed at the Playa Maya Hotel in January and took advantage of the complimentary breakfast that was available every morning. Besides the complimentary breakfast there were a lot of other items you could get if you wanted. Because of the big breakfast and going out to different restaurants each night we did not have lunch here every day, but anything we tried was as good as all the reviews say.
So if you are staying here you are in luck and if you are passing by on the beach look for the place and you will not be disappointed.

I read that Playa Maya has the best coconut shrimp in PDC. We ate here for lunch. My wife and I split the coconut shrimp and it was plenty of food after each having pina colodas. They may have brought out chips and dip also. Can't remember after all the meals we had on this vacation. I can't say if it's the best coconut shrimp in Playa because it is the only coconut shrimp I've had in Playa, but it was some of the best I've ever had if not THE best.

The paella is exceptional!. We had several meals here during our stay and were always pleasantly surprised. Beer is 35 pesos and on Saturdays the special is 2 for 1 margaritas, pina coladas and other cocktails 100 pesos. There were several luncheon specials during the week as well.

Breakfast was included in our stay and we always managed to find something. Some interesting vegetables with our breakfast: cactus, Mexican squash, mashed potatoes, refried beans and potato paddies.

Started the day by receiving poor service from a waiter at another beach club. It felt as if we were a nuisance to him, so we packed up and headed in search of somewhere else to spend the day. By chance we walked passed Playa Maya and were waved over by one of the beach attendants. We were placed in two beach chairs, had an umbrella set up, and a beer all in 5 minutes or so. We felt welcomed and relaxed within a few minutes. We spent a lovely afternoon on the beach drinking beer and eating wonderful nachos and other snacks. Playa Maya and the staff saved the day by welcoming us after being so rudely treated earlier in the day. We loved it so much we went back the next day and did it all over again! Thank you for the great service!
