    Family trip

    We really enjoyed our family vacation. The food was good and a lot of different options to choose from in the buffets. The hotel grounds were very clean and well-maintained. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

    If you love smoking you will love this place!

    If you like smoking you will love this place. Stayed at the maya beach premium we used to love staying here. Food has gone way down hill and tons of people now smoking at the pools with ashes filling the pool. I would pass on this once excellent resort

    Resort was extreme safe, spectacular scenery, palm trees provided filtered sun for relaxing beach time, pool activities/bar was fun although water was not refreshing. Spa experience was fantastic… hydrotherapy is a must do!!! Fabulous vacation with family.

    Big overgrown mess

    If you are expecting a high-end experience for vacation, stay somewhere else. This property caters to the masses, but is priced as if it is a quality resort
