Obviously, when we initially booked online, we had quite an idea of what to expect at Mayan Beach Garden, thanks to numerous online descriptions, photos and details. But the reality actually went beyond what we expected : we loved our experience there, it was even nicer than we had thought !
Looking for a quiet place to start our holiday on the Maya Riviera on our way to Belize, for somewhere authentic, close to nature - different from Tulum and south of Punta Alen which we already knew, we were looking for a good base to really rest, have the possibility to explore this wild area and easily and freely practice our favorite holiday activity which is snorkeling and Nature watching ...: that's how we picked up MBG.
Even though we booked through a booking website, we immediately got a direct contact by email with Marcia, the owner, who was nice and caring - about our time of arrival, giving road directions, asking about our special wishes, special diets and so forth.. we couldn't wait to get there !
As we indeed discovered, Marcia is deeply involved in the comfort and satisfaction of her guests which makes her place absolutely unique.
It is very nicely decorated all around thanks to her artistic talents, well kept and clean in outside areas as well as inside. The garden is beautifully displayed, while the rooms are wide and well equipped.
Placed right on a cute private beach, facing the lagoon with the reef right in front, the bungalow where we slept in enabled us to dream with the gracious sound of the waves.
Located in the very near area of the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, MBG is a paradise for nature lovers such as its owner (We discovered that Marcia is a passionate about and involved in ecological projects in the area, including upcycling creations), in addition it is a very special relaxed friendly place :
The owners, Marcia in particular, know the area very well and gave us many tricks about getting around, not only on the ground but also in the sea and around the corals . She even drove us with her one day to a special place for snorkeling.
Thanks to the "system" of a big table where we could have dinner with the owners and other guests, we met friendly people.
(Had we wished to be at our own table, that would not have been any Pblm !). Concerning food, MBG serves a fresh & tasty family cuisine -and very good cocktails !
Soooo... Thank You Marcia for making our first week of holidays delightful ! We will remember your place, - so opposite to any big all-inclusive resorts - it is off
the road and dedicated to tailor-made vacations, friendly and natural : The Real (and affordable) Contemporary Luxury !
