Everything about this property gives me a reason to come back. Our group is never disappointed, the architect, the people, the service, the not noisy golf carts, the nature and eco-friendly surroundings and personalized bikes scream yes, yes, yes.

We had a wonderful visit to the Banyan Tree and enjoyed everything from the beach, to the beach club, to the food, and the service. Recommend if you are looking for a higher end place to unwind and relax. The resort doesn’t have any entertainment at the pool or at night so good if you are looking for something quieter. What made this trip for us is the service. Yesssica at the Orient breakfast was friendly kept our table clean. We enjoyed getting to know Antonio with the mezcal and tequila tastings as well as a quick sail boat tour. Tina at the spa gave a great massage, and Junue at Cello was so personable that we went back for dinner a second time to have her wait on us again. In addition, the housekeeping staff does a great job to keep everything clean. We also appreciated that most resort guests wore masks and the staff property wore their masks at all times as well.

The hotel is incredible. The lobby area is stunning, our 3 bedroom villa was amazing. The food and wine in the restaurants is great. The beach area is beautiful, with nice lounge furniture, swimming pool and clean, clear sea. We are a family of 5, 2 adults 3 kids (15, 13, 11) and we had a really nice time - the kids loved it. The staff and management looked after us really well. A very relaxing upmarket resort - highly recommended.
