Maya Villa Condo Hotel & Beach Club
Ranked #54 of 211 Hotels in Playa del Carmen
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2012

We stayed at Maya Villa after researching many All-inclusives and stand-alone hotels/condos. We went away from the all-inclusives so we'd be more free to explore. Maya Villa is located in an ideal spot between the ocean and the 5th Ave strip. The condo itself was very nice and roomy. We stayed in #412, first floor. Kitchen fully outfitted for cooking. Adjacent living area with TV. Great grocery store called Mega nearby that we stocked up at our first day of 5. Bedroom was huge - lots of storage, firm king bed, flat panel TV. Nice tile bathroom with shower. Some noise from bath above but not significant. Paid $25 for 3 days of wi-fi and unlimited long distance calls - worth it. Long skinny swimming pool in courtyard was very nice but the place was not fully occupied when we were there in April. With all units occupied pool might be overcrowded. Hot tub in pool was great after long day. Service and staff were vey responsive. We went to the "Beach Club" once for a buffet and drinks. Did not see point of returning - you could not use the beach there. Nice lounge chairs if you're into lounging. Also did not get to use the "Al Cielo" beach club that they advertise as a perk. We were looking forward to it but on calling for a reservation (I guess they share it with other hotels) we were told it was booked for the next 6 days. This was the only real disappointment of our stay at Maya Villa.

Room Tip: 412 was a good room but not super-private.

We were there in March school break from Canada, with 11 and 14 year old boy and girl. Great, central, comfortable, in-town location with lots of options for entertainment. Nice to end up there at the end of busy days! Really helpful Concierge (Manuel M. thank you!! You are the best!!) who helped us choose wonderful day excursions such as private tour to the Mayan ruins at Coba and for a zip-line and snorkel adventure. Firendly advice, access to board games, movies and books for the condo. We had a penthouse suite, our children loved the hot tub and big tiki hut over couches on rooftop patio. Plenty of room to spread out, kitchen was very well-equipped, and we walked to the Mega and the Walmart for grocery supplies, helping control our eat-out costs. Condo is comfortable, once we set up wireless it worked well. It is cleaned each day, kids actually loved the gecko pool though it was not big, it had a waterfall and also a hot tub. Only downside was they had trouble balancing chemicals and it was shut for about 24 hours. Security was good, though on Sundays a little slack, otherwise someone was always there. One block to Indigo Beach Club, ok breakfast included each day, lots of loungers (always a spot for us even at March break), walk up the beach to swimming but watching fisherman and parasailers also was entertaining in front of club. Gelato on 5th avenue right around the corner from the Villa, and lots of people-watching and stores to explore. This was a fantastic vacation that offered great variety and some safe independence if your are looking for something other than the isolated all-inclusive...Villa Maya is a quiet retreat in the middle of lots to see and do. Would recommend it to any family, though folks with young babies might find the higher floors a bit of a menace between ever-present stairs and balconies! Home away from home, thank you Villa Maya for a unique family landing spot in Playa!

We are leaving today at the end of a 3 night stay here. The rooms are in very good shape, well-kept, and the staff always friendly and helpful. A condo with 24 hr onsite service, security and everything. We walked to the market in the evening. It was fun. We were so busy going to the theme parks, we haven't even had time to visit the beach as yet, but we will today before we leave.
The only minor problems are that we wish the unit has washer/drier. After staying a few days they is a nice thing to have. The underground parking garage is very tight in space.

Room Tip: I found this place on tripadvisor. Very helpful information found here.

We just got back from a 5 day stay at Maya Villa Condo 402, with ou two year old, and had a great time there.

Pros:
Location: a 2 -minute walk from the beach. The Indigo beach club serves a good breakfast, and the staff at the beach are very good. you are only a 5-minute walk from the most happening night spots in playa del carmen, but at no time did we hear any noise from the clubs. The area is quite safe to walk at night.
Room: The condo was spacious, and a real retreat after a sunny day at the beach. The pool is awesome, and I thought it was better than the one at El Taj because the sun doesn't beat down on you.
Amenities/cleanliness: no complaints. everything was great.
spa: the spa is great, just outside the main entrance and never crowded, so you can get in anytime.

cons:

room safety: if i could give one suggestion to the owners, i would request padlocks for the condos, so that tenants can lock the condo from the inside, especially at night. Presently, almost anyone who has a key can unlock the condo and get in.
concierge: the concierge could have been better. They don't really take pains to look up anything, just hand you the existing brochures and ask you to read the info from there. We had to look up most stuff on the internet.

overall, a very pleasant stay, i would highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: 402 has a patio overlooking the street, and the breeze is really great.

Conveniently located to both the beach and all of the restaurants and nightlife that Playa del Carmen has to offer, Maya Villa is the ideal place to stay in Playa. The staff could not have been nicer and genuinely cared about making your stay a special treat. The hotel was very clean, tranquil, and safe -- like a wonderful oasis in the heart of Playa. The beach club, which all hotel guests have free access to, was well staffed and an ideal place to hang out and enjoy the sun and bright blue ocean. When I head back to Playa, this will be my hotel of choice.

We just returned from an amazing trip to Playa del Carmen and our stay at the Maya Villa Condos. Best location, best accommodations, and best service! Highly recommend this condo!

Room Tip: The penthouse suites with the second floor hot tub and patio area is worth the extra dough.

In February, 2012 we spent 8 nights at a two bedroom/two bath condo. The condo was just like the photos on their website. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms allowed the four of us to spread out. The maid service was an unexpected service and was perfect. The property is beautifully lanscaped and in an ideal location. The Indigo Beach club was one block away, Fifth Avenue was around the corner and the grocery store was in walking distance. We loved Playa del Carmen. The food was terrific, the people very friendly and the weather and beach perfect. No one should be concerned about safety when traveling to this area of Mexico.

Room Tip: There is no elevator. If you can't climb stairs request a room on the first two floors.
