“Summer visit to Mayan Princess at Port Aransas”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We have been guests at the Mayan Princess Condominiums at Port Aransas for many years and have seen the facility go through a variety declines and updates. Our visit this weekend was not quite as great as in the past because of the particular penthouse unit we booked, which had not been updated. However, when we contacted the manager to share our concerns, the response was overwhelmingly wonderful. She is taking care of any issue that can be handled by management and is sharing our comments with the owner, who needs to update the unit. She also credited us without us ever asking for this. While this unit needs work, the facility itself is wonderful with beautiful pools and grounds. Staff are well trained, and the manager very responsive. It is absolutely our most favorite place to stay at Port A and we will be back!

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for an updated unit.

Me and my sister stayed in unit 211, surprised at what awesome beach and pools views it had…the BEST on the island!!! The property seems to be having some updating done but over all the beach access was great, staff was friendly, nice get-away from those loud crowded hotels in-town. Awesome weekend and unit 211 was clean, cute and had great views to wake up to!!
I would recommend purely for the serenity !!!!

Room Tip: rooms towards the middle of the buildings have better views.

The info on this condo says sleeps four, but it sleeps six easily with the great over sized bunks. The tub is amazing! The view from the condo is great. Our family was very comfortable and happy in the 215 unit. Very modern, clean and upgraded. We plan to go back for a week in August.

Room Tip: Pick 215 if it is available.

Our room was very nice and clean. Staff was very friendly. Our washer/dryer were not working but we had family staying in other rooms so we used there's. We are heading back in August for a whole week.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 116. Room 109 was really nice too.

I read a number of negative reviews prior to booking and almost backed out. I am glad I didn't. I have been traveling to Port Aransas for many years and have stayed many places. This was one of the nicest, if not the nicest place I have stayed. We were early but checked right in. Room was very nice. Beautiful views, very nice pool area. There is even a pool for the little kids, which allows them to play without you being on top of them. Beach is very close. Staff responded immediately to any questions and concerns. I will definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Our room was recently remodeled. Rm 308.

I gave this above average since it had great beach access and the pool area was pretty nice. Yes, the property itself is a bit dated, but our room (#103) had plenty of space, a good kitchen area, and pleasing oceanside knick knack decorations that show management is interested in improvement (though the hard mattress was a downside). Don't expect lots of room service or poolside cabana boys waiting on your every whim. Do expect a low key and fun time hanging out with your family by the water.

Room Tip: Rooms 3rd floor and above are able to see the ocean.

My husband and I stayed here in 2002 and it was awesome! They had a swim up bar and the property was well maintained. After staying at another condo several years in a row, we decided to take our kids and return to the Mayan Princess. What a mistake!!!! Room 109 was horrible. The closet door was laying on it's side and the AC finally cooled down to 72 the morning we checked out. Patio door was next to impossible to open. There solution to the AC was a box fan and no one ever checked the patio door. The grounds were in major need of a facelift. For the money we spent we should have just returned to La Mirage.
