Stayed at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Sept 2010 and can't say enough about this amazing hotel! The rooms, service and food were incredible. I cannot point out any fault as we were so pleased every day of our stay. The layout of the property is beautiful and we stayed in a three bedroom villa on the beach. Very private and beautiful. It was low season so the hotel was probably only 40% full which allowed us to enjoy even more. The food throughout was great! Probably the best breakfast buffet I have ever seen. Lunch at the beach was always fantastic and dinner at the Thai restaurant was unbelievable! The other restaurant was very good as well but having that we live in NY, that kind of upscale food is common for us (I would have actually liked some nouvelle Mexican/Latin dishes on the menu). But regardless it was great and the service impeccable!
The spa is an experience like I've never had. The whole rain forest circuit is a must and I had probably the best massage in my life.
I am trying to figure out dates now to return in 2011. Have recommended the hotel to many people that travel to this level of hotel. Visited the Mandarin and Rosewood, and while both very nice, the Banyan had a much more special feel. You will not be disappointed by the Banyan Tree Mayakoba.More
