Maya Luna had already been recommended by friends, but it surpassed my expectations. Simple but comfortable, spacy and private cabanas with a roof top terrace and directly located on the beach; excellent food prepared by Chief Pedro or owner Jan and served by Caroline or Philippe, Caroline always there for assistance and advice, and last but not least the inhouse dive center La Tortuga Azul, run by the lovely Spanish instructor Yolanda and her Dutch assistant Selma, who professionally, patiently and relaxedly re-introduced me to scuba-diving (which had become a bit rusty since my last dive some sixteen years before). The reef and its great diving sites right in front of the hotel were worth the while.
A special mention for Jan's downtown bar La Bodeguita with its typically Mexican interior, its American tv-set, British dart game, and Mexican pool table, and its mainly local audience with whom you get easily befriended (provided you speak Spanish and are not adverse to a fierce drink).
If you're looking for a place to wind down, get personal service and attention, are assured of excellent food and drinks (try Caroline's coco locos, margueritas or mongitas), and great diving or snorkling or just swimming), this is the place for you.
