I have read a few reviewers sayng that you cannot swim at the beach in front of the reosrt and that is not accurate. There is a difference between cannot and wil not.
I have been to this resort twice and it is true that most people did not attempt to swim due to the corral.
But if still you want to swim at the Mayan Palace Beach, just do what I and several other preople have done.
1) Purcahse a pair of watershoes and wear them before you try to swim.
2) Find an entry point into the water which is about knee high more or less, depending on your height.
3) Walk slowly into the water until you are comfortable enough to swim. Once the water reaches my waist I dove in.
Enjoy a great and realxing swim in the clear sea.
The best part is, you have the water almost to yourself.
If you don't like this option then you can walk south (right) for about 8 minutes and you will find a nice sandy beach. Very nice swimming here as well.
If you feel that you do not want to risk slipping at this beach, there are several beaches within driving distance. There is a beautiful swimming beach in Puerto Morelos town, which a bit north of the resort.
Another option is to drive a few minutes south of resort. Look for the sign Playa Maroma Ventana. Not the private hotel but the one for public access. Adults pay about $8 per person, kids under 10 go free..
