Just got back from the Rosewood Mayakoba.
1. The rooms are very nice. Big, comfortable, and the plunge pool is very nice (if they get the temperature regulated for you)
2. Very quiet if that's what you're looking for.
3. Generally, the staff is very courteous.
1. 2 bowls of Special K, a fruit plate, and coffee was $45.00. I travel extensively and this was by far the most expensive resort I've ever seen. Mozzarella, tomato salad and a glass of white for lunch $45.00. Starting to see a trend?
2. Quiet. Too quiet for us. We like our privacy, but you quite literally don't see hardly anybody at the resort. The main pool - maybe 2 or 3 people there at high point. The oceanfront - maybe 20 people and still out of lounge chairs.
3. The food. I didn't think it was very good at all (especially for the money). We ate lunch at the resort every day. Chicken fajitas were ok. Salads were ok. Burger was ok. Also, the restaurants hours were somewhat limited.
4. The resort is sooo spread out. You either wait forever for a golf cart (they claim a cart comes around every 10-15 minutes) or you walk in the heat. We waited one night when we were dressed for dinner for nearly 30 minutes - after we had called for a cart twice.
Otherwise, you walk and walk and walk - almost 20 minutes to get to the beach from our room.
We would not go back to this resort. If it rains, there is literally nothing to do unless they happen to have a spa opening.
If you like "people watching" or being around people you will not like this resort.
If you like a variety of dining options, you will not like this resort.
