The service was so friendly and diligent. Our only disappointment was that it was so windy and the wind prevented us from kayaking and snorkeling. We did sit... More

Enjoyable, relaxing beach day. The staff was welcoming and focused on providing top rate service. Lunch was excellent, authentic Mexican tacos. Loved having shaded cabanas, floats and kayaks.

The people who work here are so wonderful-service with a smile but not intrusive at all. We had great drinks, a gentle breeze while laying in... More

The drinks were delicious, the food was great and the availability of rafts/kayaks and snorkel equipment was an added bonus! We loved the more intimate setting and the fact... More

Wonderful service from the moment we arrived and were escorted to our private palapa complete with hammocks and beach chairs and a beach bed. We were nourished with fresh chips, salsa and guacamole and drinks from the bar. We were never without a drink in our hand as the staff was very attentive. The water was refreshing and we enjoyed...

Everything under the control of Maya Chan and its employees is excellent. The food, drinks, service, cleanliness are wonderful. You cannot go wrong here, and I would love to go back, especially now that we know how to get there. :D It IS Mexico, and doesn't seem to be one of the more civilized areas. Getting to Maya Chan was... More

Glad you enjoyed your day here. When we have multiple cruise ships in, we do get new taxi drivers from time to time. We are called when you leave the port, so we know when you should arrive. After a few minutes after you should of arrived, we radioed the taxi boss and he got ahold of that driver. While... More

6 of us from the Norwegian Star booked the day pass to Maya Chan. We were very pleased with our greeter who had rum punch ready as soon as we arrived via taxi. The fresh salsa, chips and quacamole were outstanding, the beach was kept clean and tidy and the drinks were free flowing all day. We loved the inner... More
