A lovely place

This is my second review of the VWM - the first review was unbelievably long and detailed and if you want to see it - just click on my profile button and you can see it. I'll use this review to describe what has changed this time around from when we last stayed there 2 years ago. We stayed over Thanksgiving 2016 and there were some very positive changes to the resort. I would like to give the resort 4.5 stars as that is more correct. The best and biggest change is the food. The food has gone up a fair bit since we were last there. The choices and the quality have improved and there is less focus on hot dogs everywhere (though they are still there). Really a nice change to see the food doing better. The resort continues to have a large choice of great entertainment and activities, and if anything might have added even more - big thumbs up to the animation team for ALL the hard work they put in to activities and shows. Another plus is the remodeling of the lobby bar so it is more open and bright. They have also added some non smoking areas to the courtyard which is both nice and needed. (there are still a lot of smokers who stay here). The hotel has also added a very nice kids pool right next to the main pool. Great for the little ones :) The 3 things that really keep this place from being 5 star is the same things I mentioned in my previous review - wifi is only free in the courtyard and lobby, there are still no laundry facilities, and the unbelievably STUPID rule that you only get one towel per day, no exchanges from the towel hut by the pool. Really management, this is a no brainer - when you swim all day your towel gets wet and stays wet. Staff are awesome as always (towel guy aside) and bartenders are great. Thanks for the good time VWM. Hope to see you again soon.

Don't stay here!

So my friend and I decided to stay here for her thirtieth birthday as it's supposed to be fun. The entertainment was great, however when we booked we were under the impression that we had access to all the alacartes, nope, you only get access to 4 for one week, and we paid extra because she is gluten intolerant. Also our shower head was broken. We were supposed to be in a garden view room but ended up in a room that has a tennis court view with NO bar in the room, also you only get one bottle of water throughout your whole stay so be prepared to buy your own water. The service especially the front desk staff and manager are not helpful as they kept referring us to someone else and nobody solved our issues. We were supposed to have a supreme room, ended up with a deluxe. I'm by no means a resort snob but I expect a little more when the rio next door was going at the same price and is kept in way better shape. The appearance of the resort is unkempt where the Riu is gorgeous. If you're trying to decide between the two, go next door! Also, nobody speaks to you in English here, isn't it a universal language? Overall, very unsatisfied, I don't have a lot of good things to say except the beach is good, but it's the same beach that's along the other resorts, so go to the other one.

It's been 7 years since we visited the Viva Wydham Maya and can't wait to go back for our 25th anniversary in May. We loved it then and can't wait to go back. We've been to many places since then, and chose here for our Anniversary, due to the great service, drinks and food. See you in May.

Most Amazing Wedding Week Ever!

We stayed at Viva Maya a year ago and since then got engaged. We decided that a destination wedding was perfect for us and decided to return to the fabulous Viva Maya for our special day. We arrived on Saturday, November 5, 2016 and were able to check in early. We were upgraded to an amazing room that was steps away from the beach. We were surprised to see the upgrades the resort has made over the past year. The pool area was upgraded along with the lobby/lobby bar. Our 12 wedding guests arrived on Sunday and checked in without hassle. Some room assignments were switched so that the wedding party could stay together. The resort staff was more than happy to assist. Viviana the group coordinator met with us to fine tune our wedding plans once we arrived. Viviana was AMAZING and was so helpful and kind to us. We emailed back and forth for a few months and it was nice to finally sit down in person and iron out the details. Our wedding was on Tuesday and it was such an amazing day! I got my hair and make-up done at the salon. The stylist was so nice to work with and did an amazing job styling my hair and doing my make-up. Our wedding was on the beach at 4:30. The officiant was so personable, we felt like we knew him. The wedding photos were done by the resort as well. We were so happy with how everything turned out. After the ceremony a rainbow appeared on the beach just in time for our photos. After the ceremony and pictures we had a group dinner at Portofino. The food was amazing! It was the PERFECT day. The wedding was obviously the highlight of our trip this time,but we enjoyed the resort so much. Our guests who had never been to Viva Maya were equally impressed. The food at all of the specialty restaurants was great. We ate at Don Diego, Portofino, Bamboo, and ILPaco. The buffets were also good.We all found things that we liked, Our group enjoyed the shows each night at 9:30. The drinks and overall service at the bar was GREAT! The bar tenders took time to learn our names and where we were from. Edar had our drinks ready for us when we went to the bar. Our room was clean and each day a towel animal was on our bed. The staff at the resort works extremely hard and they are truly dedicated to making sure the guests are enjoying themselves. We enjoyed going across the street to the little shops and also taking a cab into the town of Playa del Carmen, It is such a great place. We are already talking about our next trip to Playa del Carmen and our next stay at Viva Wyndham Maya. It was our home for the week. So glad we chose to have our wedding at this resort. I highly recommend this resort!
