We had our choice of excursions from the cruise ship, and it was tough choosing. We haven't done any of the other activities and they all looked fun. We just wanted to enjoy some time on the beach with some fun around to mix it up. This was the perfect spot for that: drinks, sand, water, water toys galore, food,...

If you’ve seen my other reviews of Playa Maya, you’ll see that we LOVE this place! Not sure what more I can say to convince you that the service here is the best, except to say that the service is the best!!! Probably our 6th or so time staying here, and each time it gets better and better. Let me...

Rafael the Manager is a beautiful guy who pleases all customers. I was sitting by the Playa and had great food and refreshments. Papa fritas es delicious. Chicken sandwich is very good. You can rent a lounge chair by the beach and get a full service mesero for your needs. I like going here because as a former hotel guest...

Up Front I would like to say it really is a good hotel. The location as described is right on the beach. Walk to the end of calle 8th and walk 50ft on sand and you are there. We arrived around 5 pm and checked in to Rm 302 which had a beautiful view. Our problem was the room was...

We visited Playa Maya in July 2016. Access to the resort was a little rough. Construction was going on next door. Lugging all your baggage wasn't ideal. The resorts rooms are very clean. Nothing fancy, but good. The breakfast food was average. We did enjoy the coconut shrimp. Beach in front of the resort wasn't very good, lots of rocks...

We stayed for 5 nights in October as part of our honeymoon. Playa Maya was a great choice! It was just one block away from everything on 5th avenue, and right on the beach yet since their restaurant closes at 6 much quieter than other beach front locations. The beach only access down a street that is a bit desolate...

This is an altogether delightful beach front hotel. Clean, good maintenance, excellent staff, good restaurant, adequate night security, absolutely quiet at night but with good access to the rest of the tourist area. Do not allow yourself to be put off by the absence of street access. Walk 50 feet across the beach and you are at the front door....

Nestled in between some larger hotels, Playa Maya is the perfect place to escape to. Clean rooms, outstanding service (Sergio and Wilbur to name just two) and the beautiful scenery made the stress disappear. Just a short walk away from 5th avenue and you can shop, drink and eat your way to heaven.

We stayed at this small hotel in 2013 and loved it. So, we decided to return with family in June 2016. A few issues. I would give it a lower rating if it were not for the fantastic service staff on the beach. We understood that the adjoining hotel had been under construction for about a year and unfortunately assumed...
