Nice hotel, good location

We spent two weeks in this hotel. First impression was so so but it is nice hotel, very clean. Food is very good, service is very efficient. Beach area is also very nice - go to long walk to the right side of the beach area where is no hotels. Beach there is also nice - there is small coral reef (concrete blocks started to overgrow with corals). Close to the hotel there is small shopping center, but it is expensive. Walking distance to Playa is reasonable but it could be hot (moisture). More>

From our arrival at the Wyndham Maya until the moment we left I was totally impressed by the pleasant interaction with the staff, their calm efficiency and cheerfulness. The resort is simple and plain but every member of the staff we encountered treated us better and more cheerfully than many of the larger resorts we've stayed at. There was always a smile, a pleasant comment and an offer of assistance. The rooms are basic and simple, kept clean and a wonderful shower with plenty of hot water and pressure to help you wash off at the end of the day. Food is basic but good, a little repetitive, however, as there are so many options to choose from in the buffet this is not an issue. The a la carte restaurants are exceptional, some of the best on the Mayan Riviera and you have the option of dining at both this resort or their sister hotel the Wyndham Azteca just a short walk down the street. If you want to dine in town, the concierge will be more than happy to make a reservation for you ... I was so impressed by how happy they were to help. The large pool at the beach is a bit loud with the family and animation crew, however there is a wonderful adults only pool located at the rear of the resort which is quiet and offers both sun and shade areas for lounging. In the evening there are shows at the large theatre, or you can sit in the courtyard and enjoy a quiet drink. The courtyard is a wonderful meeting place and one night during the week is transformed into a Mexican Market with local vendors. The hotel is small and simple, but offers a good value for your dollar. More>

well it wasn't all good at the start we wanted a king bed and a bath tub. we got two doubles and a shower. went back to the desk very busy had to come back in two days. they let us look at the room it was on the third floor with no elevator and we began to like our ground floor room so declined. when I was in the lobby I noticed a vests room being advertised on a display screen I asked about that and he said none were available. I went back the next day and asked was that the whole time we were there? 14 days. she told me to come back tomorrow. we did and holly cow big difference. the room was large with king bed. two balconies one with loungers and Jacuzzi tub ocean view. the other two chairs and pool view. it was our anniversary so it was 45 per night more yes we did it. it was on the third floor but the lay out of the building let you enter up by the lobby and by the time you walked 6 corridors to ocean front it was only one set of stairs up to 3rd level. all good. we met lovely people every day, please go to the adult much better. lots to do food was well above average . could eat there or vista wyndam down the road 5 minute walk once your on the road. would definitely return and loved every day cant complain about anything. oh there was no waiter service at the pools but there was at the beach. I think the waiters from the preferred section didn't have anyone one to serve so they walked around the ordinary section to make tips? More>

This resort is not large but comfortable and simple. Food was ok. Beach is beautiful. Plaza is located directly across from the resort. Pool for family is not huge but big enough. Never had trouble finding a chair at beach or pool. Not so great part is the main buffet does not have a great air flow and we had plumbing issue that was on going. Kids enjoyed their time. More>

We overall had a wonderful time at Maya. It helps we had perfect weather all week with not a hint of rain. We arrived and check in was easy, only a 20 minute wait or so. We had a nice room in the 1200 block (1208) which had a fairly comfortable king bed and a pretty good albeit partial ocean view from our balcony. The best part of this room was that is is only 1 minute or so from the beach and 1 minute or so from the bar and 24 hour snacks. The downside to this block is that you can hear the evening entertainment and if you like to go to bed early that is not great. Staff at the resort are unreal. We had an issue with our safe (which is 2 USD per day) and within 10 minutes of a call to the front desk a service manager was there to help- ended up just needing new batteries. We also were trying to set our air conditioning a little cooler in the room, but you can't adjust manually. Again, within a few minutes of a call to the desk the service team cooled the room down remotely for us. We had 3 a la carte dinners which were all very good. It is true that the main buffet not being air conditioned is uncomfortable, especially after a big dinner and you just want to sit and have a few cold beer. Overall food was great and I found the selection to be satisfactory though I am not a picky eater at all. The beach is beautiful and the water is clear but can be quite rough for relaxing in. I think this beach is nicer than Varadero or at least as nice. Always plenty of chairs on the beach but if you wanted to grab a shaded chair you should get down in the morning by 8-830 or so.We didn't really spend any time near the pool/pool bar since the days were just too nice not to be on the beach. Also had lots of activity going on the beach...volleyball etc. We also had a great young server named Rafael who always checked on us so we had regular drink service. He is a great guy and works hard, small tips each day made sure he checked on us regularly but it is so worth it. The wifi is actually non existent. I was not able to log in once during our 7 days. We made it a regular stop to pop over to the Starbucks before dinner to check emails facebook and all that stuff. There are also some cool vendors and shops just across the street which we loved walking. We booked an excursion on the beach through Juan to go snorkeling in Akumal bay with the turtles and then onto snorkel in a freshwater underground lake or cenote. It cost 50 USD per person but was worth it. Juan did say the trip included drinks but this wasn't the case. Overall great resort, great people, and I would go back in a heartbeat More>
