We got a really good deal on Expedia which is why we feel 3 stars is a fair assessment of our experience. We booked for 6 nights and the food is not of very good quality even though the staff tries really hard to make miracles with what must be a very low F&B allowance per guest. Unfortunately, it rained on 4 out of the 6 days and my biggest criticism is that the hotel did not offer any alternatives to spend entire rainy days at the resort. If they would have some foosball, pool, video games it would had helped pass the time better. Our best day was when we rented a car and went to Coba and Tulum on our own. Avoid June to August as is rainy season!

Basic all inclusive, with mass oriented services

This is an all inclusive of a 4 star ( more like 3.5 ) category where all services and amenities are oriented to the bulk consumer. Rooms: Standard rooms. Better rooms are in the buildings in the back but you have to walk longer to the beach. Safe box for an extra USD 2 per day. Ask for a pool view and avoid noise rooms close to show theater. Food : It is OK, plenty and fresh, not much specialties though. Do not expect much from the "regional" days as the same food is only shuffled around in the buffet room, with more regional decorations than actual region dishes. Internet : Free only in crowded lobby area. Room is premium access at 35 USD per week ( slow 2 MBps ) or 15 USD per day. One device only, so be prepared to share internet from your one allowed device. Beach: nice beach, 2 km south of ferry pier. Basic water activities like sailing, body boarding and sit on top kayaks. Chairs in beach will fill up soon. Pools : average pools, no wet bar. There is an adult pool in the back if you want a quiet place to read. Gym and other sports : Gym is standard machines and weights with 2 TRX stations. Tennis shoes required ( too bad as I run barefoot ). Archery, sit this one out, not the proper equipment. Tennis court available. Scuba center: probably the best feature in the hotel. Courteous and efficient service. Professional knowledgeable people. Cozumel dives and PADI cert available. Show: Some nice shows at night, for about 50 minutes. In general, depending how much you pay for it, its is a good base camp for visiting the area, although not for a resort only stay.

This was a family vacation. The Wyndham chain does a good job providing something for everyone. However, nothing really stands out as being excellent. It's a solid good. Our boys enjoyed trying out the trapeze. The shows were good. However, the beach animation team, while good, constantly blasted the music. At times it got to be too much. The pool is on the small side and usually was kind of dirty by the afternoon. The have a nice poolside snack bar which was quite convenient. There are activities for people of all ages. The beach is beautiful and spacious. There is a pool for adults that is located in the upper half of the property. It has a pool bar and is much quieter than the other pool area. The food is your typical all-inclusive variety. We had no problems with any kind of food related illness. The theme restaurants are okay. They have certain rules for attire that must be followed or they won't allow you in. Also, there are exchange privileges with Wyndham Azteca. You can visit there and have food and beverages. We actually preferred the Azteca. All in all this is a good hotel for a family vacation. It's a solid value, well maintained with a friendly accommodating staff. It's hard not to have a good time here. After all, it is Playa Del Carmen!!!

Beatifiul Beach, Excellent Service, but please keep on reading....

My wife and I just returned from a fantastic vacation at Viva Wyndham Maya. The beach is one of the best we have ever enjoyed. The staff was friendly, hard-working and very helpful. The hotel is a little bit older, but we found that to be part of its charm. Food and beverage? Good to great. We had two meals at the table service restaurants - we opted for Don Diego and Portofino. Both were excellent, and very accommodating of my wife's gluten intolerance. Service was far beyond our expectations and the food was creative and expertly prepared. We also enjoyed several meals at the buffet, which served a variety of fresh foods. There were enough choices that we did not get bored over the six days we were there. Added bonus: the servers can deliver beer and wine to your table, or you can serve yourself from taps at the beverage area! The beer is Dos Equis draft, and the soft drinks are Pepsi products. At breakfast, they offer a wide variety of freshly squeezed juices in carafes on ice - watermelon, guava, mango, banana, etc, Room - we stayed in room 1318. We requested ocean view with a King size bed. We could see the ocean (a little, if you really tried), but the room had 2 queen sized beds. We talked to the front desk about it, and were told there was none available. We were encouraged to check back the next day at 1:00 pm, but by then we were settled in and didn't want to waste precious vacation time negotiating. Why 4 stars and not 5? Based on our experience with the room, and a conversation with the Concierge, we started to believe that in order to get the better amenities, you have to buy into their timeshare program. At the resort, the guests are given wrist bands - blue for normal guests and yellow for the members. There are members only perks - preferred seating at the beach, better location in the buffet dining room, just to name a couple. We got the impression that we would have gotten the room we requested if we were members. BUT! Our experience was overwhelmingly positive. The Entertainment was a lot of fun. The beds were comfy. The sheets were high quality. The cocktails were outstanding, and the bartenders hustled to make sure that everyone was happy. The mojitos and Margaritas were particularly outstanding. We brought a roll of $1 bills and tipped liberally, though we never felt that it was expected. We would certainly come back in the future, and definitely recommend Viva Wyndham Maya to anyone who is considering staying there.

great for the budget friendly traveller

For the price you really can't beat the Viva Wyndham Maya. It is on the same stretch of beach as many much more expensive resorts as well as many luxury homes. The buffet food is average and the rooms could use improvement but the staff is amazing. The grounds are meticulously kept, the beach area is gorgeous and the a la carte restaurants are lovely. Food: As many have mentioned, it is nothing special. We love Mexican food so there was always something to eat. Corn tortillas with whatever meat was being served, salsa and guacamole. Lots of fresh fruit, healthy options always available. There was a bit of variety, depending on what nationality was featured but some of the offerings were not very appealing. We really enjoyed the food at the a la carte restaurants, especially the Mexican one (Don Diego) as well as the international one (Viva). Plenty of choices, well presented and service was great. Rooms: The worst part of the hotel. Very basic, beds very hard and we used our towels instead of the awful pillows.(My daughter and I brought our own based on previous reviews). The day we were leaving they were adding refrigerators to each room, which \i think will be handy for drinks etc. Many people have mentioned the staff so I won't say much about them except to mention the concierge Raul who was so helpful and friendly. He was one of our favourite parts of this resort. The location is excellent. Within easy walking distance of Playa Del Carmen. Beach is well kept, cleaned each morning and lots of shade and chairs to relax. Wifi is poor but who really wants to be on their computer on vacation? It was actually great to be free of technology. If you really want, you can go into town and buy a new simcard for your phone that allows data and it's cheaper than what the hotel charges per device. Definitely a great resort for the price, especially if you know what to expect and are flexible. Just enjoy being on the beach and in the Mexican sunshine with a nice cold drink.
