“Total luxury and relaxation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

Lived up to all my expectations after all the research done before our trip!
The resort is so pretty, spread out over the lagoons and the grounds were immaculate.
We stayed in the deluxe over water bungalow which was stunning and totally private, the only detached properties on the resort. Our room (408) was close to reception and we thought a better location than the beach villas.
The wildlife around the villa was amazing we even had crocs swimming by a few times and so many different types of birds.
All the staff were so helpful and friendly. Concierge tried really try hard with any requests.
The only downside if you want to be picky is the restaurants, the food was fine but not enough variety if you are there for a week or more and getting a reservation in the banyan tree proved very difficult! We did manage to get an early reservation in the Tamarind(6pm)and while we were there we walked to Saffron and managed to get booked in the for the following day. Worth doing if you are there for a week or more. We also had a really nice lunch at the golf club house. The hotel will arrange cars to take you anywhere else on the mayakoba resort.
Loungers round pool are not the most comfortable but we asked the pool boys to put 2 cushion covers on which made a big difference.
Would definatly go back and highly recommend.

We are well travelled and have enjoyed the privilege of staying at many hotels that are widely considered to be the best in the world. The Rosewood Mayakoba
hotel was one of the best experiences we have had - the resort design, amenities and service were exceptional.

My husband and I spent 4 unbelievable days at the Rosewood, an absolutely amazing place. The grounds are manicured, yet the jungle is right out your door. The arrival by boat to your own dock, having a plunge pool on your patio overlooking the lagoon, and the privacy, all with the natural environment surrounding you creates a very special experience.

The staff is attentive without being intrusive and extremely polite and friendly. They are the best we have ever experienced in many years of travel.

The rooms utilize elements of nature and the tropical environment resulting in a beautiful setting and no detail is overlooked (Loved the outdoor shower!). The care in keeping the resort in tune with the environment was very important to us, and the wildlife made it even more special.

Our only issue was the number of children present that we felt impacted the serenity of such an unbelievably beautiful property. We would have preferred it was an Adults only resort.
The beach was great. The pools are beautiful, but again, too many children deterred us from spending much time there.

When you take a family of 11 to a resort this is the one you MUST select. The employees are well trained to make your stay a memorable experience. We had 5 children ranging from 16 months to 9 years so you better select the right resort. We did. Our family loved everything about Rosewood Mayakoba especially their children's program called Rosebuds!

The staff are amazing and passionate about what they do and really take care of your needs. They even wash your sunglasses while you sun tan on the beach!!

One of the best parts of this resort is privacy. It is a place where you can go and not be bothered but still get away to Playa Del Carman the little town just 15 min. away for shopping in the little town's shops.

One unique feature-Our room had a roof top plunge pool-WOW that was special.

The beach is calm and very safe and the water at times is like a bath!! Some surf according to the time of year just enough for the kids to enjoy.

Bottom line-Rosewood Mayakoba is THE place to be in Cancun Mexico for your vacation or meeting.

I came here with my husband on our honeymoon and we could not of have chose a better resort. The property is beautiful and the service is top notch. I have never been to a hotel that treats you better. They were the nicest people, anything you wanted they delivered with a smile. We stayed in one of the overwater lagoon suites and the view was spectacular. Definitely worth every penny.We had the best time and cannot wait to go back.

Room Tip: Over water lagoon suites are the most private
