SO Relaxing!

This is our third trip to Playa Del Carmen, and first time at this resort. We had stayed at the Azteca last year. Resort is very clean, and well maintained. Suitable for any type of vacation you could desire. Lots of options, activities to keep you busy, or, (the option we chose), quiet relaxation by the adult pool. As with mentioned in previous posts, the buffet area can get quite warm while eating, but come on, you are visiting a tropical climate!! What do you expect?! While we were there, there was some construction going on behind the lobby, but the resort has done a great job of keeping it unobtrusive. Would definately stay here again, (as a matter of fact are looking at future bookings already). The only areas I could see for improvement is the staff. By no means are they rude, however, af all the resorts we have stayed at , they were the least friendly. At other resorts, you do indeed become friends with some staff, and even seek them out throughout your stay. Also, the main pool bar, and the bar in the main square were always a long wait. The main square bar, the bartenders moved extremely slow, and it seemed as if the guests were the last priority after washing things in the sink, talking to other staff members etc. Again, minor complaints, certainly not hindering future visits, or recommendations to others.

PERFECT, amazing place to relax and explore the Riviera Maya

The hotel is really cute, next to the famous Riu Palace, it is for me worth 5 stars. The room we choose was ocean view, we had the view to the pools, beach and the island of Cozumel... Room deep cleaned everyday, with a small animal made out of towel in the bed waiting for us. Really quiet (even with the show at night it never bothered us), at some seconds from every drinks, snacks and pools. The pools are really nice (better than the Viva Azteca we visited by curiosity) warm water, a special pool for kid and in the really front of the hotel a adult-only pool ... The beach is wonderful (you are in the Riviera Maya), white sand, places to lay, place to play games (the animation team is really nice) The buffet in La Terraza and the restaurant, all are good. Don't expect gourmet food in the buffet of course, but lot of choice ! (pizza are better in the snack near the pool) Good situated, near the 5th Avenida in Playa del Carmen, 20 minutes to Xcaret and 40 from Tulum (as we visited) I had great time, plus my boyfriend proposed in the beach, super romantically. Enjoy really good time in cheap resort. More>

Great beach but that's all!

Got off the plane, hotter then you know what. Lobby was small and staff not very friendly. Room was small, very clean but air conditioner not working. Free wifi...didn't work. Mini fridge in room but not stocked, some rooms didn't have fridge. 1 bottle of complimentary water per room, you can refill that bottle at the bar or buy water at the store. Never had to buy water at any other ALL INCLUSIVE! Buffet restaurant was mostly the same food everyday, not much variety. You couldn't enjoy even eating there because it was to hot. The À la cart was air conditioned and the food was very good. The rooms were very noisy and if you had a pool view room, the evening entertainment sounded like it was on the balcony. Hard to go to bed early. Safe usage is $2 a day. However, the beach was the best I've been to. You could walk a long way out into the clearest water I've ever seen. I wouldn't recommend the resort unless they fixed a few things. More>

Good escape trip

Overall, we recommend it to our friends for it's reasonable price and the quality of the beach. We booked it on Sunwing, which offered the free round-trip shuttle from airport to the resort. Viva Wyndham is located in a resort village, and it's the last stop of the shuttle bus. Comparing to other resort in the same village (like the resorts of RIU), the lobby of Viva is not so fancy or even a little bit old, but the room is very clean and comfortable, as shown on their website. The buffet restaurant is just so so, because there are no much seafood (what I really like) but a lot of chicken, pork and beef dishes (what my husband enjoyed more). Their a la carte restaurants are great! We got two tickets to a la carte dinner during our 4-night stay, and we enjoyed both their Mexico restaurant and the Italian restaurant. The beach is beautiful and clean. Considering the price of this resort is much lower than the others in the same village, but viva wyndham maya locates on the same beach of the high-end resort, I recommend it to the people who want a affordable but beautiful sun destination vacation.

Great relax

We spent nice relaxing two weeks in this hotel. The resort is one of the smaller ones in the destination, which was definitely a big advantage. Room were big, nice and clean, main restaurant offering large variety of food - both international and Mexican. There were always plenty of seats available, we never had to wait to be seated. A-la-carte restaurants were also a very good option, reservation was not a problem. Beach is nice, wide with lots of sun ambrellas. Center of Playa del Carmen is in a walking distance, if you need to rent a car, exchange money or do some shopping, I recommend to go there. More>
