Sergio and Carlos made sure our drinks were never empty. Cost was $35 US for the day and includes open bar. Lunch was excellent and very reasonable. Shrimp tacos at $9... More

We booked this independently of our cruiseline to save some $. We were pleasantly surprised to find them not crowded. "Monica" that seemed to run the place was very gracious, and we had "Sergio" as our waiter who kept good tabs on our needs, and kept the drinks flowing. We had reserved a raised platform beach-bed which was comfy. The... More

We were a group of 6 adults that all prepaid for the full package which we thought included double shaded loungers but upon arrival we were told we could only have two and the rest were reserved for others. We were told Sergio was our waiter and he brought us one round of beers then we never saw him or... More

My wife and I had a great day at a very nice beach thanks to the Yaya Beach Club. Our waitress, Marcum was fantastic! She kept the drinks coming and was very attentive to our needs. We would definitely go there again.

This was the perfect place to have a good drink after a day of enjoying the village. I cannot remember the young lady who served our drinks in the evening, however she was not only polite but poured a good drink. Thank you for making my stay in Mahahual a good reason to come back.

We booked Yaya through Shorefox and it did not disappoint. Waiting for us was a lovely padded chair under a palapa and our waitress Markham was waiting for us. The sand was like baby powder and the water clear and warm. Markham knew we were thirsty before we did. Nothing was too much trouble. Lunch was the combination plate of... More

This bar has a really nice vibe, both at the bar (on the swings or in the sand) or on the beach. They play decent tropical house and generally chilled electronic which seems to attract a good crowd. We loved their drinks, which at some of the more popular beach bars are often seem a bit watered down. Never tried... More

This is the best beach location on Yaya Beach so it's got that going for it. Our service wasn't the best.

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.
