I was amazed by the way the staff treated us! The rooms were a little small but the beds were comfortable. The food was very delicious. The maya food could be better, rooms were very clean. The WiFi however, a bit disappointed, the man who greeted us, Issac was very polite and helpful to us. Overall it was a great vacation, I can't wait to come back again. Once again, a big thank you to the staff at Wyndham Maya!

Very close to perfect!

I loved my stay here! Although my room was a little sparse and beginning to show signs of wear and tear, it was very clean, functional and quite comfortable. A five minute drive or a 30 minute walk to 5th Avenue, the complex is impeccably well maintained, well thought out and a easy to navigate. I particularly liked the jungle in between the two main buildings where one can sometimes see some small (friendly) animals. The food at the buffets was very good, varied and replenished in a timely manner. I did not feel the need to try any of the à la carte restaurants. The biggest asset of this hotel is the kind, competent and relatively friendly staff: they work very hard at their respective jobs. This hotel is very well staffed. Please don't forget to occasionally tip, here and there. A little goes a long way and they sure as hell deserve it. The clientele is mostly european couples and famillies so everyone was well behaved and polite...even the kida! I was glad to see that there were very few americans, who can be loud and obnoxious. My only complaint would be the fair amount of old cigarettes butts in the smoking section of the otherwise beautiful beach. An easy fix, if the management wanted to adress the situation. (I'm a smoker and usually cleaned up the area around my beach chair) The beach peddlers were plentiful (this is Mexico, after all) but weren't agressive or intrusive. A smile and a "no, gracias" and they were on their way. There were always lounge chairs to be found somewhere, regardless of the time of day. I would love to come back to the Viva Wyndham Maya, an almost unbeatable value. Highly recommended!

Rip-Off price for very average "resort"; more of a 2+ star hotel with low budget food

Leaving this "resort" left me feeling utterly ripped-off. The food is only fair, you are limited to the number of restaurants on site that you can visit, you are charged an additional fee to use your room safe, one bottle of water per STAY is provided in the room, the alcohol is so watered down you need 4 drinks to even get a buzz, the front desk and concierge services are poor, unfriendly and they seem over worked even though we tourists are paying a small fortune to be treated courteously, the location is nice of course as our the grounds, but the high price charged here does not equal location only. We expected much more and certainly not to be ripped-off. We will not be back, have stayed at the RIU Playacar in past and loved it, but obviously Viva Wyndham is poorly managed from a customer oriented standpoint, and we would recommend the manager be replaced to improve and reflect the high quality offered by other Wyndham offerings. Until then, I would discourage anyone from staying here. You can do much better elsewhere for the price.

We would go back in a second !!

We were at this great resort during the Christmas week of Dec 24/16 - Dec 31/16. Check-in was very fast and got a room on the pool side 2357 and was very quiet. Rooms were very clean and beds comfortable. Staff left towel decorations daily. A/C worked great! Resort is the perfect size...not too big to require golf carts to get around. You can walk from one end of the resort (lobby) to the beach in less than 3 mins. Food was delicious. Buffet had enough variety for a one week stay. We booked 3 a la carte reservations no problem and we were very happy with the service and food. We asked for more at each restaurant as it was soooo good. We went to the Don Diego Mexican, Miramare Italiano and Viva Café International. Animation team was great. Our kids loved playing volleyball on the beach vs the animation team ! There was always something to do, if you wanted to. Staff were very kind and remembered you even when they weren't working. A big thank you to Armando at the lobby bar, Raul at guest services, Eder at the pool bar. Keep up the great work and keep smiling !! Beach was excellent wide and clean. free activities included kayaking, hobbie cat rides, beach volleyball, and boogie boards. No problem getting beach chairs or towels. Free bikes at the resort was a big plus for us. We were 2 families so 8 in total and we went to 5th Ave 2x by bike. What a great experience to bike in town and explore and visit all the little shops. This also allowed us to go visit other friends who rented a house near Playa del Carmen. Overall it was a great family trip and we would recommend this resort to all our friends and family.

We would go back. There ARE a few things that people should be aware of....

Awesome boutique resort in Playacar, about an hour from the airport. It's nice to be in a place where the edge of the water to the hotel lobby is less than a five minute walk. Service in the restaurants and bars is exceptional. Food is well prepared and presented. Some top-shelf liquor brands are available in the bars. Rooms are a fair size, clean, but a bit "spartan". Pool is well maintained. Common areas are also spotless. Things that need to be changed: 1. We vacation at least twice a year in all-inclusives. Never once have we stayed in one that does not have a mini fridge in the room (other than this resort) 2. Water bottles (kinda tied in to the lack of mini fridge). There is one (and only one) in your room when you check in. A tab on the bottle advises you that if you want more, you can purchase them at the gift shop. I would have been less annoyed with this concept if each person in the room was allocated ONE bottle at check in because it's east to walk a few minutes to the beach bar to refill your bottle at a self-serve dispenser. 3. If you want a safety deposit box, you pay for it. Who DOESN'T need one? It's a nominal fee, but.... These 3 picky little things won't keep us from considering this resort again. All-in-all, we enjoyed our Christmas vacation.
