My family and I make our annual trip to cook thanksgiving for my mother in law who cannot drive to San Antonio. The room was awesome! The bed was comfortable so was the fold out couch! The views were awesome! The kitchen had everything I needed to complete my dinner for family. Mayan princess is our favorite place to come...

We loved our stay at The Mayan Princess, and loved #207! It has a very cozy and welcoming feel to it, great views of the pools and the beach. Waking up on the balcony with coffee and a gorgeous sunrise over the beach was one of my favorite things to do during our stay. The beach access is right past...

Nice place. Older. Not as many people as some bigger places. So Nice place to relax. Wish they had another spa cause the one fills up fast. But nicely kept place. And staff was very nice. Room was clean and it's very close if not right on the beach. Nice family place.

Great and very nicely decorated newly renovated condo. The tropical pool area was very nice, the two issues were that there was so much chlorine in the water that my kids' swim trunks faded and the mosquitos were horrible around the pool. There was 3 pools and a hot tub. Very close to the water. Overall it was a really...

I may have been spoiled from nice resorts, but for the price we paid, I wont likely return. The hot water wasn't just inconsistent, it only worked once the entire long week-end. The internet was super dodgy and crazy slow. the pools were nice (maybe too much chlorine, but nice for sure). The couches in our room were icky, and...

Stayed Wed through Fri, so not a lot of people around. Made for a very nice quite stay. Enjoyed the privacy of the pool area, with quick, easy beach access. Room was big, clean and the jacuzzi tub was perfect. Highly recommend it. Definitely staying again.

Great place to relax. I love the backyard, feels like Caribbean. Small, friendly resort with direct access to the beach. I hated car traffic on this nice beach. It is such a busy place for families with children, cars should not be permitted on the beach.

The furnishings in the room were very old. The room needs an update badly. The hot tub outside was not hot. We needed extra towels, but had to return the towels that came in the room in order for them to give us more towels. We will not stay there again.
