We just returned from our yearly trip to the Viva Wyndham Maya with family and friends! We all love this resort and this is where my son proposed and married his beautiful wife. I can't say enough about the staff they all know us by name and welcome us back every year! This hotel gives a beautiful beach, room and excellent food. All the a la crate restaurants are well managed and staffed and serve with enthusiasm and great fun at the table! Especially birthdays! I got to take a peek at the new lobby bar opening soon and can't tell you how beautiful it is with its colored lights! My whole family from children to parents and cousins to friends ! I have brought a lot of visitors to this great resort and look forward to next year! The Noel family

Great. Very great!

We arrived to a downpour on Sunday September 25 with high hopes that the weather would improve and it did over the next 2 weeks. We were quickly checked in but the front desk staff and escorted to our rooms. As stated in my subject the resort was good but there are some improvements that could make that would make this hotel great. Here are the great aspects of the hotel : THE BEACH: was the best clean and very welcoming. THE POOL: It was recently repaired so it was really nice could have a bit more shade but not complaining. THE DRINKS: Were top notch THE FOOD: No complaints I gained 6 lbs lol THE STAFF: Both the serving staff as well as the bartenders were top notch whether they were tipped or not they served with a smile. KIDS CLUB: Although I did not have small children what I saw was impressive with the quality of the staff working with the children. I saw the children making pizza, painting masks, learning to dance just to name a few I give this service a big 2 thumbs up. Now the areas that could use improvement that would give this hotel a 5 star rating: THE BUFFET: Was not air conditioned so it was really warm during meal time. THE ROOMS: Are a bit tired and could use some updating (although did not spend much time in the room) THE ANIMATION TEAM: They played their games but spend very little time interacting with the guests especially the English speaking guests, after the evening show they all disappeared shortly after, at the sister hotel the team danced and interacted with guests until the disco ended and then some. And now for information that is just a warning not the fault of the hotel but the honesty of some people: I left my bag on the tour bus one day which had my camera as well as my IPod with a few dollars. In the bag was my name as well as the hotel and my room number. We contacted the tour operator Sail Away but they claimed that no bag was found but we were the only guests sitting at the back of the bus if someone finding it was honest it could have been easily returned but it wasn't, lesson learnt. Overall we have a wonderful trip and would recommend this hotel and will probably return.

Great "smaller" resort among the mega resorts

Hotel: Viva Wyndham Maya is a “smaller” hotel in Playacar which is a gated community on the south side of Playa Del Carmen. Security was always keeping there eye on everything, left stuff on chair and never gave another thought about it, A couple of beach vendors that I assume had permission to walk the beach. Just told them no thank you and they never pushed and moved on. Hotel is part of the Viva chain who has several hotels around the Caribbean. They just started remodeling a building just off they lobby which will not interfere with your stay. Only irk I had is that they would only extend your stay by 3 days. Only wanted one extra. This worked out well after all because we move to a cute little hotel Mimi Del Mar town on the beach 1 block off of 5th avenue just down from the Cozumel Ferry Dock. Arrival: When we arrived we went to check-in and they saw we were RCI members and whisked us off to the VIP office to check in. Nice!! (Usually have to check-in like like a regular booking) There they gave us information on the resort, room keys etc. Any questions we had they were there for us, computers to check-in airlines, etc. Great Ladies!! The only ocean view room was on the ground floor which was fine. However they moved us to a 3rd floor even closer a day later when it became available. (Note: we had an RCI upgrade, “if available” voucher) Everyone in the regular check-in out desk were moving along quickly from what I observed through out the week. Hotel: Hotel was absolutely spotless. Had covered walkways so if it rained you never got wet. The pools had been just re-lined and were gorgeous blue color. Lots of beach and pool chairs and shade. Hotel was pretty much filled which was a surprise for Labor Day week. Must have had specials running from Europe. Mostly German, French and Italians at resort, with a sprinkling of Argentina tourists. Rooms: The ones we were in were nice and had been remodeled recently. Nothing fancy but we were only in there to clean-up and sleep. Soap, shampoo, hairdryer provided. Housekeeping did a great job everyday! Only irk was you had to pay $2.00 per day for a safe.... no big deal. We were in the south building 3rd floor 4 rooms from the beach overlooking the pool and beach. Could hear some music from the stage. We could barely hear it over the A/C which would chase you out. You can also put a sleep sound app on your phone and turn it on. Activities: You can do as little or as much as you want! Always had something going on.... Yoga, dance, all sorts of aerobics, volleyball, trapeze, etc. Water center had kayaks, sailboats, paddle boards, archery, etc. Lifeguard on duty on the beach. Had nightly shows and activities. Beach is very deep and you can walk out another 30yards almost to the rope. Parasailing, jet skis, snorkeling and diving also available. On site dive shop offered “resort” courses for those who would like to try diving with training in pool and then offshore shallow diving. We went down the beach to the Reef Hotel to the Reef Marina dive shop and dove with them. Main reason is they did night diving and would take us (4) out on basically private dives. Spa services were excellent from what I was told. Nice new gym. They also had a great looking Kids Club complete with a wading pool in it's own area. Food: The all IMPORTANT question.... main buffet was large and quite good and had a good selection for an AI. Have to get reservations to the Specialty restaurants were very good especially the Italian. If you want two of something on the menu... just order it!! The Snack bar is basically a mini buffet with food that rotates throughout the day/night. Great Pizza and burgers. It and the bar are open all night!. You can also walk a few doors down to the sister resort the Viva Wyndham Azteca. Asian restaurant is fantastic. There is a nice shopping area across the street with everything from a Starbucks, clothing stores, jewelry to a pharmacy.

Good Value

Overall Viva Maya does a great job and does not disappoint for the money spent. We used the onsite dive shop 6 times during our trip. While the dive staff does a great job the operation could use some upgrades to bring it up to standard. Diving on the reef itself is not a great experience, but we made the best of it. We went to Maya with low expectations and quickly found that the resort far exceeded our expectations. Unlike most all inclusive resorts, the bar tending staff did a great job and never had to wait long.
