We had the most amazing trip. The resort is large, beautiful and expensive. We thoroughly researched the resort before going and knew exactly what to expect. The food is very expensive on site, but that is what you would expect of a Gold Crown Resort. We bought groceries in Playa Del Carmen at Walmart. It was dirty. Wish we had...

I travelled to the Mayan Palace Riviera Maya and had a wonderful time, we were there from Aug 27th to Sept 3rd. The beach is not really swimmable unless you bring water shoes to get past the rocks, then you should bring snorkel gear to see all the fish about 50m off shore that swim in and around the man-made...

My husband and i just spent a week at the Mayan Palace and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The resort is beautiful, the service was excellent, but the very best part had to be the pools--absolutely gorgeous. We wanted a completely relaxing vacation and that's exactly what Mayan Palace delivered. The main pool area includes 2 swim-up bars with 2-for-1 happy...

We just returned from the Mayan Palace and we can't wait to go back. I too was a little apprehensive about all the bad reviews and after having been there - I wonder where those people stayed because we didn't experience any problems. Our reservation was from Aug 14-21st. American Airlines actually cancelled our flight on the 14th and we...

My husband and I and our 3 teenaged boys stayed at this resort from August 1-8 and after reading so many negative reviews on this site, I was a little nervous on what to expect. This resort was a pleasant surprise! Check in was smooth and bottles of cold water were given upon arrival. Our room was a two bedroom,...

It's your average Mexican hotel. The staff is very friendly and gives good service. The food and drinks were very good with decent prices. The pool is huge and very nice and clean. Our room had no view of anything, just jungle about 15 ft in front of us. The only reason I would not go back to this hotel...

We stayed for a week on a trade from Cabo San Lucas. After reading many of the other reviews we requested a closer in building and landed in building 10 which was next to the lobby. They originally had us in building 19! There are 21 buildings. The resort is quite large but is beautiful. There is truth that lots...
