This was our second time booking Hayhu, and it was just amazing this time as the time we went last year. Other than the long walk out of the port, it is seamless finding your taxi and driving less than 30 minutes to the resort. The resort is stunning and every measure is taken to make it enjoyable. We were given beach chairs and a table for dining (but bring your own towels). We went with our three kids (5, 3, and 1 year old). The water is gentle and shallow enough for them to play. The beach was great and they had hired someone to rake away the seaweed, and they also have beach toys for the kids. My kids also loved the hammocks, swings, and smoothies. The food is amazing, and Freddy and Carlos took amazing care of us the whole time and made sure transportation was there when we were ready to head back to the ship. You will not be disappointed if you choose Hayhu for your shore excursion!

I spent the day at Hayhu beach club from the Royal Carribean cruiseport. My fiance had booked it, when i heard we were taking a 20 min taxi ride there ill admit i was a bit nervous of how that would go.

They were EXTREMELY organized, they contacted us immediately on the process. We met our driver Hector right outside of the cruiseport, standing with our names written down on a sign so he was easy to find. He took us there, arrived around 9:30 and it was absolutely beautiful. We had a great relaxing day, enjoying fair priced drinks, hammocks, beach and the great view. It was very clean and private. The manager of Hayhu asked us what time we would like Hector to come back for us, we decided 2:30 would be good. Our same driver as before, Hector arrived at 2:30 on the dot to take us back. It felt very safe, and if i was visiting Costa Maya again i would totally go back to Hayhu. 10/10!

Hayhu VIP beach experience was worth every penny. The only horrible parts were that we had to leave, And finding a way out of Costa Maya Port. My recommendation is to Look up a yt video of how to exit, so you don’t waste time.

It was clean, the food was marvelous. We enjoyed lots of smoothies which were divine. The crew was attentive and personable. The beach was relaxing, and gorgeous. The kids used the kayaks and snorkel gear. We were so sad to leave!

Our family of 6 rented the VIP deck. The food was amazing. The staff was prompt and attentive. The facilities were clean and inviting. We didn't spend much more than our daily price since Hayhu generally includes a food and drink allowance.

There was some seaweed, but it wasn't an issue and the staff were actively working to keep the beach clean though out our visit. The beach was wonderful and of course the water was inviting you to spend more time in the sun than your current sunburn allows you.

The transfers were easy. Any fears were quickly diminished when we walked past the guard shack and immediately saw our name on a board. The staff was waiting to usher us into a taxi and on the way to our destination. Hayhu pays for the transfer, but we gave a small tip ($5 each way) as a tip to the driver. The drive from the port was about 20 minutes.

We would not hesitate to book another day trip to Hayhu next time we are in Costa Maya! Thank you for the great day!

Secluded beach break with wonderful views and service.

Getting to the taxi, you must walk through the whole port, exit the port, and continue to walk down the middle of road till you get to the intersection. There you will be met by someone who will check your name and get a taxi for you. As stated, there is no charge for the taxi, but know that they will politely ask for a tip.

After about a 20 min taxi ride you will be dropped off at Hayhu. I was met by one of the employees and was promptly shown to my area in front of the beach. The water was beautiful, and the sand was nice. They have a shower to wash off the sand, bathrooms and changing rooms. Know that you will not be able to use private decks if you choose this option. I should have read the description more closely as I would have paid more to be able to use the private decks.

For lunch, there was no knowledge of my fully paid reservation and/or how much credit I was to receive. I had to pull up the email and they had to contact the owner to verify everything. This was a little inconvenient, but it worked out and my credit was determined as 150 dollars. The food and drinks were wonderfully and beautifully prepared, but it was a little pricey. For 1 lobster tail, 1 fish fillet, 1 skirt steak, 1 bone marrow, 4 empanadas, 1 alcoholic drink, 4 smoothies and 2 waters came out to 225 dollars, not including tip. Thus, my balance was 75 dollars after the 150 dollars in credit. On the other hand, one thing that is awesome is that they use wood, not coal, to grill the meats which makes the food taste fantastic. The wonderful sauces are an exceptional complement to the dishes, giving everything full flavor. This was easily one of my top 3 best meals on my 7-night cruise and I ate at all the specialty restaurants on RCCL.

Overall, my 3 children and I loved our time there and would likely go back again. If you want a more secluded beach experience with wonderful food and service and are willing to pay a bit more for it, I recommend this establishment.

Suggestions: (1) To whomever is overseeing email communications, there needs to be a change in the confirmation as it states that there is a credit amount of 300 dollars, not 150. (2) It would be nice to have someone explain all the amenities and to be asked if we would like any of them. For example, in the description on the website it states that towels are included. But I was not asked if I needed any or where they might be located. If the amenities were shared in the beginning, it would be easier to ask, locate and use, thus creating added value to the guests’ experience.

We planned this as an excursion from our cruise on Harmony of the Seas. Hayhu is about 40 minutes from the cruise port. They arranged transport to/from Hayhu. On arrival was pleased to see that it looks just like the photos! Rustic, but luxurious. Bring your own towel. It is in the middle of nowhere. Not much for kids to do except build sand castles. We got a massage on the beach. One hour was $60. They bring in contractors. Food and beverage prices are consistent with US casual dining prices. They do not have any American beers. Hayhu Beach is a delight. I would come back in a heartbeat. Highly recommend!

Aside from the 30 minute bumpy ride to Hayhul Beach Club, this was an absolutely wonderful day and experience for our extended family. We opted for the VIP Package (had 9 people) and definitely would recommend to bigger groups for exclusive use of a larger cabana and appointed wait staff. The food and drinks were the best of our 5 day cruise overall and all of the staff were very helpful with recommendations and more. My only regret is not being able to spend longer here. Believe the 5-star hype, Hayhul Beach Club fits the bill!

Spent Christmas Eve with the team at Hayhu Beaxh Club and it was awesome!! Honestly, the ride there is a little sketchy - about 15-20 miles though the Mexican jungle but once you get there is it Paradise. Food and drinks were fantastic and the service provided by Freddy, Cruz and Carlos was top notch. Highly recommend the grilled lobster, sausage, shrimp, steak, etc. Platter - fantastic. Nice Sandy beach with wale boards, kayaks and snorkel gear. Don’t miss the massage on the beach - my wife, mother-in-law and daughter all got one and raves about it - and only $40/half hour. That’s a fraction of why you’d pay at the 4 seasons in Naples!!

Highly recommend this place for a quiet getaway from the Cruise crowd - skip the ship scheduled excursions and go to Hayou for better value!

A picture is worth a thousand words!
Excellent service....delicious guacamole and food! Margaritas made with simple and FRESH ingredients!
If you are looking to get away from the crowds and don't mind a little drive this is a great place to be pampered with a massage on the beach and all of your needs catered to 🤙

This was a lovely small beach club that felt private and relaxed. Direct transportation to and from the cruise port was included. The service and staff members were very nice and friendly, and there were no vendors hawking merchandise. The water was beautiful and any seaweed had been cleared away so that was not an issue. We had a private shaded pergola area with two lounge chairs, tables, and additional chairs. Food we ordered was good, and my daughter had a relaxing massage while there. They limit the number of guests each day (I believe it's 40) so it was quiet and great for just relaxing, swimming, resting, sunbathing.
