Pros: The landscaping is very beautiful. Many choices of pools. All the employees are friendly. The maid service is great. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. It was very roomy. Cons: Check in was a surprise. They have to make a copy of your passport, plus a $1000 hold on your credit card, then you have to talk to...

The Grand Mayan facilities provide a tropical sanctuary with beautiful surroundings.The lush flora and fauna combined with the beach side setting are truly spectacular. We were fortunate to be in Building 1, which is the building closest to the pools, so we did not have to use the trams. It was extremely convenient to Jade and the restaurants. One of...

Went recently to the Riviera Grand Mayan and, as usual, it was the best. Think about the hundreds of people that go through there every year. Now imagine going back 18 months later and they greet you, remembering your name, and with a great big hug ! The people make the difference. Special love goes out to Shirley from the...

Grand mayan is a beautiful hotel and it's very well located, food is great in most of the restaurants, Big nice warm pools, very kind personnel, but we have to tell you about the big con's we found, in order to move faster inside the hotel, you have to wait for little trains that move you around but sometimes they...

It was a very bad and rough start. There were 10 of us and we had made reservations 8 months in advance and specifically requested and paid for two units with two bedrooms 3 beds in each unit. We were assured on multiple occasions they had separated the units for us. Upon arrival-that was not the case. After 6 hours...

We returned to The Grand Mayan and it feels like home. We were in Bldg. 1 which is VERY convenient. We've stayed in the Jungle rooms on previous visits and have never had to wait more than a few minutes for a shuttle. 2 years ago our beach server was Carlos. This year while sitting on the beach waiting for...

Top shelf ! Grounds and pools are fabulous. Staff is great and more than willing to assist. Great variety of food and drink in the 17 restaurants. The only draw back is the wait for the shuttles due to the enormous grounds. These can be somewhat confusing. The resort is appropriate for all ages from toddlers to the elderly. I...

This resort is huge. Our room was located in the Jungle part of the resort, building 8. To get anywhere you had to wait for shuttles or walk which is fine if you are in shape. We found getting our way around and learning the property was tough and got lost a few times which was frustrating. The restaurants are...

What an outstanding week at the Grand Mayan! We declined the timeshare presentation at check in (one firm no thank you did it) and had a great family vacation. The pools are huge and amazing. The kids loved the one with a sand beach that mimicked the ocean. Food was exceptional. Some of the best vacation meals I've ever had....

Hotel grounds-This hotel is huge. Really pretty grounds ,wonderful pools, and mostly friendly staff. We requested to be in building 1-6 and they actually put us in building 3. We were one of the lucky ones. I felt so bad for the people in the jungle. Just to go to the pool they had to "try to get on the...
