This hotel is in a great location! 20 minute walk to 5th street and the ferry over to Cozumel $24 round trip. There is also a little shopping place just right across the street from the hotel. Starbucks is also across the street. the food was really good in the hotel and at the pool bar. You can walk down the beach to senior frogs at hang out there.

I have to be honest when we first arrived and got our room I was a little disspointed that I could not see the beach from our balcony. I was a little confused at first, but after touring the area a little more realized where the beach was and I was ok with it. Our Room was very nice and comfortable, not that it really mattered b/c we were there for the beach anyways. There were some older ladies in our group and the walk to the beach and up 3 flights of stairs was pretty tough so we requested to change rooms. They were very happy to do that on the next night and put us closer to the beach and more centered to all that was going on. It was really helpful beacuse we really were a long ways away. I was very impressed that the hotel was so accommodating to our older ladies needs. The beach was magnificent. Perfect for swimming, plenty of chairs, tons of activities, and I absolutley loved it. The seaweed was really bad but the resort worked diligently to keep it cleaned up. It was a little freaky swimming in it...but it wasnt so bad that I wouldnt get in the water. The pool was great and there was always something going on. The staff was wonderful and had a lot of fun activities that they encouraged others to join in......or you could just sit back and enjoy the festivities. The courtyard was also very pleasant with free wifi. I had read that it was hard to get a good signal but I had no problem at all. There were plenty of chairs for people to sit down and relax and read, surf the web, etc. The food was really good and there was a huge selection in the main buffet area. If you wanted they also had food by the beach. WE never had a problem getting something good to eat. We made reservations two nights in the resturants as well. El Portifinos was SO GOOD!!! We had such a great time in there. It was prob the best overall experience with the staff. EXCELLENT and the FOOD was amazing. We went parasailing, and snorkling and the prices were fair. It was well worth the money for the experience. The drinks were good and if you didnt want alcohol there was a slushy machine with frozen pepsi and a strawberry flavored one as well. I drank a lot of those!!! :) Night time was ok during the week, They had a lot of kiddie shows up until 10:00...which was sort of a buzz kill. I mean come on...the little ones should be in bed at that time. But Saturday night the show was spectacular. It really was good and we really enjoyed it!! There is a StarBucks right across the street and some shopping as well. I would save my money and take a taxi to Fifth street and get t-shirts and other stuff there and save yourself a lot of money though. We walked to the Ferry and went to Cozumel. The walk is not too bad and we felt Very safe. I wouldnt recommend doing it at night but daytime is ok. We did take the taxi which is waiting right outside the hotel gate and for about 8 dollars they will take you into town and drop you off. Well worth it if you are not into walking a lot. But if you can walk......its not too bad. All in all it was GREAT! Oh....one last thing. We had pictures made. BEST MONEY SPENT there hands down. The photographer captured unforgettable moments and the pictures are priceless to me. Just overall a great experience.
We will return!

After going to Playa del Carmen 10 times we are certain this property is where we want to visit again. The entertainment crew keeps things fun all day long with yoga, horseshoes, sailing, volleyball, pool activities, a kids club, and then a dance production at night. Although we did not participate in all the activities, we observed visitors loving every single offering; the crew's energy is contagious. The al carte restaurant offerings provided great choices. The Italian spot at The Azteca, the sister property, was wonderful. They went all out for my sister's birthday...delicious food, friendly service, singing and a yummy dessert.
The plaza in front of the lobby bar is used all day as a place to get on wi-fi and hang out relaxing in the evening. On Tues. night they bring in vendors with jewelry and souvenirs so visitors have a shopping option without going to town.
The vibe at Viva Wyndam Maya is great for all members of the family.

We stayed at the Viva Maya from April 30 to May 11. This was second stay in the Playacar area and we enjoyed it. The resort is not large so it is easy to get to all the restaurants, bars, lobby, etc.
The rooms were nicely decorated, the AC worked great, but the pillows and beds could be upgraded. The buffet was average, a little repetitive, but good quality. I often ate at the snack bar close to the pool and the beach. The burgers were great as long as you remembered to ask for well done. We ate at 4 a-la-carte restaurants and they were all very good. I especially liked the Bamboo at the Azteca.
We really enjoyed the layout as the main pool, bar and snack bar were really close to the beach.
All in all, we had a fantastic vacation. This isn't a 5-star... they do not stock the fridge, the beds and pillows are not the best... but we still enjoyed our vacation and think it is a solid 4 star, great for families with the trapeze area. For the right price, we would certainly return.
