After receiving the follow up communications from David, we were all a little nervous. The anxiety worsened as we drove off the paved road, past many debilitated shelters, some of which had a strong pungent odor of rotting garbage. Then, we arrived at Maya Chan,...More

Amazing! You will be pleasantly surprised at this wonderful resort! The owner and all of the employees make you feel right at home as soon as you meet off the port (if you are cruising). The communication during the booking process and throughout is top...More

My father-in-law booked this for the group and I wasn't sure where we were headed. The trip to the beach is about 20 minutes down a very bumpy road. It was worth it, hands down! Beautiful beach, wonderful wait staff, pretty good drinks at the...More

So glad you were surprised. We just got notice that we are no longer allowed to do our own repairs on the beach road. The Ship's ATV and Jeep Tours want it a bit rough. We still fix areas, but now in the night time...More

Maya chan is amazing! We are visiting as cruise ships guests. Great food, great hospitality, there are none better in Costa Maya. Unlimited drinks, float chairs...do it!

Everything was exactly as advertised. I was worried the day of arrival because we were told they had to voluntarily close the day earlier as a storm produced a large amount of seagrass on the beach. They offered a full refund and pictures of what...More

I cannot sing the praises any louder about Maya Chan. We had a hiccup in getting our reservation, but that was as much our fault as it was theirs. They were so accommodating and went out of their way to still make it work and...More

We had a wonderful time at Maya Chan. Everyone was so nice especially Joel (Yoel) and David. It is about a 30 minute drive from the port and was a little bumpy, but plenty to look at and the time went by fast. I really...More

It'll depend on what time you dock, I think we got there about 10am and left at 15:00' it's about 30 minutes from the port, to be safe you'll probably have to leave at 12:00, if you can get there early then it might be worth... More
We are taking a cruise in August was looking at a beach to go to. Can you tell me more about your trip? How far from the port? How did you get to the beach? Did you have to make a reservation in advance? Thanks
