My family stayed at the Grand Mayan from 6/13-6/20. We had a really nice time. We had perfect weather the entire trip! Also, the wave pools and kids' pool opened on the third day there, so we were able to enjoy those as well.
We stayed at the resort all but one day. The pools and beach kept us entertained and busy. We took one excursion to Las Caletas.
Tips: you can check out pool toys at the activity center; you can check out beach toys at the kids club; Dominos pizza is 2 for 1 on Tuesdays ($20 for one pizza normally); food takes a long time after you order (keep this in mind if you have children); we brought our cooler to the pool everyday with snacks and sodas; after you pass the small rocks on the beach out to the waves the ocean floor is sandy. It's very fun to boogie board out there. Might want to take water shoes for little ones. Definitely walk down and enjoy the Mayan pool one day. The center is raised, and it's fun to play football on that area.
We did bring some food from home: peanut butter; jelly; granola bars; protein bars; candy; coffee; creamer; pretzels; etc...
Also- the last day we were there our plane didn't leave until 5:00. We wanted to swim and play all day, but check out is at 10:00. We asked at the front desk, and you can continue to use the facilities after checkout as long as you keep your bracelet on. We also went and asked the gym if we could shower there. They let the adults shower for free!!! I wish we would have checked out the gym/spa earlier, because it was sooo nice! I don't know if they always let people do that, but it is worth asking. Our last day was fun swimming and relaxing before leaving. We used our credit card and cash for food and snacks that day too.
I have some great pictures, but I'm having a hard time posting them... I'll keep trying...
