Our first experience in all inclusive resort and at Riviera Maya, we had great time and all positive about this resort. Resort: Changed our room twice without any headache, very friendly staff, they all work hard to keep the place clean, they clean entire shore line, beach bench area, pool & all the garden every day. Good room with view over resort from balcony, mattress & pillow are regular, but they kept room clean, no issue with hot water or AC. Food: We are little picky eater, but we had no issue with all buffet restaurant, it has all variety with different culture food day. Fresh breakfast & live prepare few food & really good workers, serve you with smile & curtest. All 4 restaurants ware nice & quality food. Off-course the test is subject to individual & kind of food you use to. Entertainment: Good, Young talented group (6-8 ) keep day time activities, such as pool game & dance active, Night time show were good, we enjoy the best of Latino & Madonna show, real good, we like it, also they kept timing good, so not loud music after 11 PM, which were good so, no issue with your sleep, if you stay close to pool or ocean side. Overall: Wifi work fine in Lobby, No good choice of TV channel, (Who needs any way), Bar staff were good too & knows how to handle the crowd. Water down drinks which is normal & needed. Good security process, place located good place you can go to bicycle ride out side the resort & enjoyed it. Cata-marine included during day, beach valley ball, table tennis & other activities. No issue with water or mosquito, don't hesitate, go and enjoy great weather & beach & green. I am impress with their single water bottle policy which keep resort clean & promote green policy. Yes We will be re-visit the riviera Maya per sure, Like it so much.

A real gem steps from the beach

We revisited this resort after about 10 years. We took our kids and had a great time with all the programs. We flew Sun wing out of Montreal. This trip, we noticed some improvements but the beach was even better. We visited this time with my brother in law and his family. We had adjoining rooms on the third floor with ocean view rooms. The resort was extremely clean, where we saw the pool guys start cleaning before daybreak, the cooks taking temperature of food, and the maids working tirelessly. There were plenty of sunbeds, but the 2nd last day, one of the security guys came and told us we can't "reserve" sunbeds over one hour. (Even though we were one of the first people who sat at the pool and all the loungers were available). I explained we were simply going for breakfast. We did see him take two groups belongings, take their towels to the hut and their belongings on the side. The food was delicious, 5 * at the a la carte restaurants. We only wished we could go to all of them. Our favourite was the Italian. The buffet had varied but standard food too. The omelet stations were great but wished there was a make your own pasta station (as many other resorts have). Special shout out to Omar in reception who managed our reservations, Marco at the buffet and Gregario at the pool bar (who made THE best strawberry daiquiris). Every staff member would take time to say Hola and ask if there was anything they could do for you. We walked into 5th avenue on the beach one day and carried our wares back. We took a cab another night and spent a few hours shopping. It cost $15 for a van for 6 people. The best part of this resort (among many other things) is the access to the beautiful beach. We could walk in both directions along the Mayan Riviera and it was very safe and clean. The beach has been restored since we visited last and was quite wide. The rooms, food, drinks, people and quality was top notch. It is not a listed 5*, but I would not hesitate to visit again or refer others to the VWM.

This Hotel have 5 stars on its website but it is a big lie it is barely 3. I travel a lot and have a lot of Hotel experience and it was the worst one. It is a low class and low level place to stay, the internet speed was awful and you can not even open a single page, rooms didn't have blankets, the pillows were like for 10 years ago.

When we arrived, we waited almost 30 minutes in line to get checked in. There were only two people working the front desk at prime time. We then went to our rooms and they were very clean, which was great to see. After 12 hours of travelling, we were quite exhausted and decided to go to bed early. Our room's balcony faced the 24 hour bar. They would blare music right at the pool beside it and we could hear the evening show quite loud. I had to buy ear plugs by day 3 because I had had enough. We asked to move rooms but were sloughed off twice. The pillows were very lumpy as well, and we had no hot water (even after 2 times of calling and having someone come "fix" it). Staying 5 nights only allowed us 2 reservations at the restaurants, which we found a bit ridiculous. The buffet gets old after a day, so we often went into town for meals (defeating the purpose of all inclusive). For positives, the adult pool was very quiet and relaxing, the resort was clean, and staff were very friendly and helpful. The beach was beautiful and had lots of shaded area to relax in for the pale folk like myself. Being in a gated community also made the trip more relaxed, knowing it was secure.

Enjoyed almost everything

This is our 2nd year in a row staying at the Viva Maya. We also stayed there 2 years back in the early 2000s. Upon arrival, we were slightly disappointed that we did not receive a welcome drink. And we had to wait until 3:00 for our room (that is their policy, so no big deal) The beach is wonderful, and the grounds are well taken care of. Everything was clean. Everyone was super nice and friendly; bartenders, restaurant staff, maintenance staff. That part really made our stay nice. I utilized the bar quite a lot. I mostly enjoyed the beer which was cold and refreshing. I had some mixed drinks too. The bartenders were all very friendly. If there was a line, they usually had my beers poured and ready to go by the time I reached the bar. We ate dinner at the Mexican and Mediterranean restaurants onsite, and the Italian restaurant at the sister resort, Viva Azteca. All 3 dinners were wonderful, and the service was perfect. The other 4 nights were at the buffet. We ate all breakfasts at the buffet, and about 1/2 of our lunches. We thought the buffet was quite good. The poolside buffet was handy for days where we didn't want to change out of swimsuits. They had pizza there from a woodfire oven that was very good in my opinion. During 1 of our lunches at the buffet a staff member sat down with us and we enjoyed chatting with him. We watched the shows every night and found them all to be entertaining. The Animation team are certainly talented. Complaints: 1) Our room was basic but clean (Room 1268). The biggest downside to our room was that it was at the bottom of the stairway, and in that area people tended to congregate and talk. The sound echoed making our room quite noisy. 2) There is no internet in the rooms, and it cost $35 per device for the week. 3) There is only 1 cash machine, and it dispenses in US dollars, and it is a rip off. It told me it would charge $5.80 + 10%. But then there was another $2.50 fee that I wasn't told about, plus a small fee that my bank charged. All in all it cost me $15.73 to get $60. Shame on me for not bringing enough cash. But, I tipped a lot and ran out. *** I really wish there was an ATM which dispensed pesos *** All, in all it was a great stay, and a good value.
