Second trip to Mahekal and I am certain it will not be the last.
We were there last year in March and just returned last month.
The staff are so SO wonderful and attentive, pleasant and happy to help.
I will say I think the food is a little bland. I don't eat cheese, so nothing really tasted like anything unless I put hot sauce on it. Still, I ate and was happy.
For what it is, it is such an affordable resort. I am so so glad we discovered this little gem.
We went just the two of us last year and this year we returned with another couple, and it was incredible for all of us!
I can't wait to go back, so relaxing and wonderful and amazing.
