We joined my parents who vacation here year after year for a 2 to 3 week period. In 2012 my husband and toddler as well as my newlywed sister and her husband (in their 20's) joined my retired parents for a week. We went with no expectations. My mother is budget traveler - that can be worrisome. We knew it was a "Mexican resort" where mostly Mexicans vacationed and we had heard that it was spread out. And it was...
A fantastic Mexican experience! Not a 5 * resort but truly a great positive experience. Lovely staff, authentic Mexican cuisine, activity staff from all over the world, who tried very hard to please. Gracious bar staff who were quick to serve and remembered each of us. The activity staff tried their best to get us involved - despite the language barrier. The walk to the beach was long but worth it. The restaurant and fresh oysters and tequila on the beach were to die for.
Each of the staff members addressed my parents by name and were keen on getting to know us, They honestly treated my parents like family. They truly showed that they cared about my parents comfort. This made me feel better about my parents spending the winters here. My father is frail and knowing the staff are quick to respond gives me ease. This was was a great over all experience. We are excited to join my parents again for a short visit in 2015. We will bring both our kids this time with confidence.
Can't wait :)

When we arrived family was excited about our stay!! We entered our room and it was a different story!! My son slipped on wet floors in room and hurt himself! Horrible outdated rooms and property!! Kitchen was half missing, bathroom sinks, light fixtures not functioning properly! The phone in our room was not working! Apparently ...they were working on the phone lines for a month per a worker at the hotel! So we decided to check out within a couple of hours of checking in...after hours of addressing issues with management!!! Grrrrr!! I will not recommend this so called all "inclusive hotel" to any of my friends!! Hope this is helpful to some of you!
great for price and family friendly

Priced right for a family on budget...older property certainly in need of some updating and maintenance ...but friendly helpful staff and food made up for it. The good....price...clean...spotless grounds and pools....the bad ac worked in one room of 3, in both units rented....dated interior of rooms....plumbing not the best. If you want 5 star service at 2star resort this it. Many thanks to Leo from Australia here for work....enjoyable conversation...Thanks Leo....food was very good for this type of place. As I said....5star at 2 star=3star....don't expect what you don't pay fir and you will enjoy your stay. Although the AC issue should never be an issue....did not report it since we were only there 2 nights. Hint...take some bottled water and know a little Spanish.....
It' coming back

I used to come to the former Maeva. My very last experience (3 years ago) had been terrible. I didn't like it at all. When I had to plan my vacations this year I was somehow hesitant to come back. To my surprise, the concept has changed. It seems the management is trying to get it back to life. Food is just Ok, but the place is wonderful for resting.
The villas still need some mainteinance, but nothing really serious to worry about.
Very healthy environment with very friendly staff. I am glad I reconsidered my choice to come back again. You guys are back into my list of options for family vacations.

My friends had a time share stay here and I bought a 24 hour all inclusive pass to the resort. We had a blast!! The food was good, the staff were good, the entertainment was good. No, they didn't speak English, but we are in Mexico! We managed to understand each other when we wanted to do the zip-line but did not have proper footwear; the pool girl gave hers to my friend, and the guy at the top running the zip-line gave me his!!! It was an even better experience because of this (the bar tenders would have no part of it! hehe) The night entertainment on the stage was all Spanish and we didn't have a clue what they were saying yet we managed to grin from ear to ear and have sore bellies from laughing so hard! This could have also been because after they dragged us up on stage to dance with them I came flying out of my flip-flops right in front, sending everyone into hysterical laughter! People in the crowd had our phones and cameras and caught everything as actions shots! And we got all of our stuff back too! Yes...it was a blast. Lighten up and go with it.
