We had a party of six and book the Maya Chan within the last week of our stay there were no issue and everything went smooth. We can't say enough about it. The service, staff, food and drink were outstanding. It was the most relaxing excursion we have ever had. The hardest part was the taxi people inside the port trying to get us to take their taxi (pay for it) to in town and get a yellow taxi there to go to the resort. Thanks to the good direction from the Resort we knew they were trying to take us for ride (so to speak) so we just walked out the gate and were met by a Maya Chan staff member who got us a taxi and sent us on our way. Great time you won't be disappointed if you choose to go there. We will make that normal stop when ever we go back to Costa Maya. Oh did I mention the affordable but very good massage, just wonderful.

This is truely a piece of heaven. We took about a 20 min taxi ride to Maya Chan. Upon arrival we are welcomed and shown to our own private area. We were 2 people with 3 chairs, and a day bed. Waiting for us was a cold refreshing bucket of beer. THANKS DAVID you made Johns day. We were served fresh fruit and offered any type of drink we wanted. The drinks flowed freely all day long and did not disappoint. The massages were out of the this world. The best hour of relaxation. Lunch was amazing. Hubby was not a big mexican food eater until he tasted the food here. The staff was amazing and constantly asking if you needed anything and even served you drinks in the water. This will be the only place I return to when going back to Costa Maya. I can not say enough on how much we enjoyed our day there. THANK YOU MAYA CHAN!!

When looking for that one thing to do while on a cruise stop in Costa Maya, don't forget to check out Maya Chan Beach. They treat the guests like royalty and there are plenty of things to do. Transportation to and from the dock is included. The all you can eat taco bar was excellent! We also used time to kayak, snorkel, and get a massage. The adults who had technology withdrawal were able to use their tablets because of the free wi-fi provided at this place. We came in on the Disney Cruise, so most of the people who went here were also families with kids. Our kids especially liked the pinata...and all the candy that they got to take with them. The only negative was that there was not enough time here...because the cruise stop was so short...and we couldn't take advantage of all the benefits of this place. Highly recommend this place next time we are back in Costa Maya!

Our family loved this family run beach resort. We were treated like royalty! The price was very reseasonable and included a light breakfast and amazing homemade lunch. We had unlimited drinks - Bloody Mary etc., fruit smoothies , soft drinks, water. The staff was continually asking if we needed anything and even walked out into the water to bring drinks. We snorkeled, kayaked, and relaxed in water chairs (with drink holders). When we needed shade our family had our own personal palapa with chairs, hammocks and sunbed. Mark & Jane Ostrow and their son are so welcoming we hated to leave.

We recently made our second visit to the all inclusive Maya Chan Beach in Costa Maya. We were traveling on the Carnival Dream and even though we had to depart at 2:00 pm that day we had a great morning at the resort. When you get off the boat they meet you just outside the terminal in a van and take you on about a 20 minute ride to their place. We arrived at the beach around 7:45 am. They had a cabana reserved for us and immediately began serving us fruit and other assorted foods and drinks (great rum punch and most anything else you desire), including breakfast. The took us on a kayak/snorkeling trip (around 100 yards off the beach) which was really nice. They served a spectacular mexican lunch around noon and we departed at 12:30 for our ship. Our only regret was that we couldn't spend all afternoon there. It is so relaxing and beautiful and was well worth the cost even for just spending the morning there. My wife and I would highly recommend it.
