If you have a chance to spend a few days at this resort, just do it. Pick any number of positive adjectives and this place has it. Relaxing, fun, exciting, entertaining, amazing, beautiful, educational, welcoming, fancy, clean... I could go on. This place has everything you could want. The food is great, the staff is super nice. They called me...

The resort was beautiful and staff went above and beyond... The shuttle service around the resort was very convenient and made it easier to get to different areas...the pool was amazing and the largest I've ever seen...very clean and friendly.... The beach area was very rocky and not easy to go in the water.... the restaurants were very busy and...

We stayed at the Grand Mayan for five days in February. Beautiful property very well kept. No views from any of the rooms just jungle. Very difficult to get around this place is huge. They have trams that rum every 15 minutes or sor but we always seemed to miss them. So you walk 3/4 a mile five or six...

We bought a week through Interval International Getaways....3 couples. The staff is amazing and accommodating. First, they arranged for us to be in the same building, same floor, two couples in adjoining rooms even. We avoided the sales pitch and they didn't pester us when we said we were busy. Maid service was everyday...one day she had our large bath...

This is a big resort. Everyone was nice and clean, Employees were very nice and helpful. We were pretty happy with stay until check out. Our final bill was incorrect so I went back to the front desk to get it corrected. They gave me a slip and said the charge was cancelled and recharged the correct amount. After we...

First, this place is HUGE! The rooms are spacious and clean, ours had a terrace with two chairs and a small table, but we were really only in the room to sleep, or shower and change. Nice big bathroom, double sink, walk-in shower and whirlpool tub (which we never used). Don't expect to have an ocean view from your room,...

The food is very good, but the staff turnover is high so the concierges are not the most knowledgeable and seem to be quite young. The worst part is waiting in line early for beach beds, over-booked restaurants - we had to eat in our room twice because of lack of restaurant availability and the very long and high pressured...

A truly remarkable setting and lovely accomodations. We loved the theme of this resort with palapas, restaurants, stores, and villages. The landscaping is remarkable and plays right into the jungle surrounding it. The pools connect one into another and then there are others all around the acreage as well as canals of waterways. They seem to welcome local wildlife and...

This place is gorgeous but HUGE!! Be prepared to walk walk walk ! The food is average the staff is friendly. It really is like being on a cruise ship. You must reserve your pool chairs at 8:00am. Who wants to get up early on vacation ? The best restaurants require a reservation so again like a cruise ship -...
