Excellent location, friendly staff...but

First of all, the location is excellent. I have been to Playa del Carmen several times and the beach area at this hotel and in Playacar (neighborhood next to town) is beautiful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Service was excellent. HOWEVER, the buffet/beach food at this all inclusive LACKS VARIETY...AND CHICKEN DISHES! If you like hamburgers, hot dogs and pork, you will be ok. But you get tired of the same thing if you stay for 7 days like we did. Last year I stayed a their sister property, Viva Wyndham Azteca, a few doors down. The food there was excellent! A good variety AND THEY OFFERED CHICKEN DISHES! Since you get access to their sister property, we went to check out their buffet (although we were not allowed to partake in buffet but if you stay at Azteca , you can dine at Maya buffet (???)) and pool food. What a great variety at both! The reason I tried the sister property Maya, was because I had such a wonderful stay at Azteca. I will not make that mistake again. The reason we stayed at an all inclusive is to totally relax and not have to worry about going somewhere else for lunch/dinner. Unfortunately we were disappointed.

Pleasantly surprised by the Viva

Travelled April 15-22, 2017 Direct flight - Ottawa-Cancun (Sunwing) - We arrived at the Cancun airport at 10:00pm (left 1.5 hours later than scheduled from Ottawa) - Went through customs and security fairly quickly. Canada Transfers was waiting for us when we exited the terminal. We arrived at the Viva Wyndham Maya at 11:45pm. Check-in went quick as we were the only ones checking-in at that time. Room 1351 - The room was pretty basic (2 beds, 1 refrigerator, 1 small balcony looking on the Riu next door and a service road (which was noisy in the mornings). There is a safe which we need to pay for ($15 US for the week). We also have 1 bottle of water with a note explaining that this would be the only bottle for the week and if we wanted more, we can purchase bottles. We knew this so we had brought water bottles with us. While at first we were annoyed by this, (We even tried leaving a big tip with the maids for more water bottles-- which they didn't accept), by day 2 we were actually impressed with the Eco-friendly shift. Very modern! And they have many many water stations in which you can refill your bottles, with buckets of ice too. We had breakfast each morning at La Terraza. We were pleasantly surprised with the variety of food each morning. There were 2 omelette stations (one of the stations is where the bacon is hidden). Shout-out to Fabien and Noé, the two best servers ever. Super friendly, smiling and generous! There is a snack bar that is opened pretty much all the time (11:00-7:00 and 10:00-6:30am). If you want to have lunch without going to the buffet, the options were pretty good. We had lunch there a few times, but mostly went for lunch at La Terraza because we loved the Mexican Corner and the pasta bar at the buffet. The desert corner is also to be many choices there! We had reservations (which can be made in the lobby each day) at Viva Café (International), Hacienda Don Diego (Mexican) - we preferred the Mexican corner at the buffet but the ambiance is pretty cool. We also had dinner at Miramare (Italian) which was our favorite. Pool/Beach - We spent the first few days at the pool (water was very warm) as there was a bit too much sea weed in the ocean. There is also an adult pool which is really nice for those who need a break from the screaming kids. The last few days of our trip the sea weed was gone so we spent those days at the beach - Playacar beach is so beautiful. There is no pool bar and although the resort was full during our stay, we found that we did not have to wait long for the bar service. The animation around the pool is pretty good (not too pushy). They offer water aerobics every day at 11:15, and we were astounded at the amount of people who joined in. Great music and fun, and again, nobody pushing us to join. We had one full day of rain during our stay and found that there was several covered areas where we could sit, drink, play cards which was pretty nice (all rooms also have a courtesy umbrella big size). There is a nice area next to the lobby where you get the free-wifi, we enjoyed the non-smoking section of this area. (There is even a non smoking section on the beach) . You can get free wifi in this area but also have the option of purchasing wifi ($45 US) which gives you access throughout the resort (including our room and the beach). Spa - We enjoyed have a nice massage on the beach (had the option of having the massage at the beach or at the spa). We had requested a late check-out but due to the hotel being full capacity we could not stay in our room past 1:00 pm (check-out was at 12:00 - they gave us an extra hour). Our luggage was safely stowed in a locked area. We had access to the showers in the gym, which had fresh towels. Nightly shows - We did not go to any of the shows as our dinner reservations were always later, but the shows are outside and offer plenty of sitting options, very vast and spread out area, which is pretty nice. When staying at the Wyndham, you get to have access to their sister hotel the Azteka (2 or 3 hotels further down the beach). We took walks on the beach and stopped there for drinks and swimming in the pool. We also could have booked dinner at the restaurants there and they offer shuttle service to get there and back. Don't be fooled by the 3-star rating, this hotel was very up to par and we would go back any time!

Decent hotel for the money!

We stayed here for Spring Break with 4 kids (14,16,17,18) and 4 adults. Overall we were happy with our stay, but the food being the only real downfall! The buffet was not the best. Everyday the same with little or no variety. The dinners were themed supposedly, but other that an Italian or Mexican flag hung up, the items were the same from the night before. The chef needs to learn variety in his menu! We dined at the Italian restaurant on property also, but were very disappointed at the variety and quality of food! The Mexican one wasn't bad though. BTW....You can only pick two ala carte places during a 6 night stay! Best food we had was d-town at a local Mexican joint! Rooms were decent. Service ok. Overall staff friendly minus front desk folks. They charge to use safe? That was a little much! Nightly entertainment if you so desire. Walking distance to decent shopping and a Starbucks. Beach nice, plenty of chairs, water clean, and pool nice too.. Wyndham could out a few bucks in the place to upgrade it to their standard.

Nearly checked out on check in & wish we had. Had a nice time as we were part of a group but was very pleased to leave. Big pools lots to do & entertainment every evening. Food & drink plentiful. So so many people.

Fun hotel

Hotel is on a lovely part of the beach. Food is not the best, sometimes cold and not a great deal of variety. Mexican a la carte is very good with good service. Evening entertainment is definitely a highlight, some really fantastic shows, only let down is there is no waiter service so you have to fetch your own drinks. Good fun atmosphere.
