We stayed at this resort dor two weeks in may 2019.Such a great resort,very clean,big room with jacuzzi, lots of food and drinks.Really enjoyed our stay,couldn't falt anything.Great entertainment by the swimming pools or in the theater.
Only bad thing it was about the sea and the beach. In this time of the year there were sea weeds but the hotel staff were working really hard to clear the water and the beach(mother nature is showing off sometimes)
Highly recommend this resort!!!Well worthed

Typical all inclusive
Reviewed 1 day ago

This resort is big and busy and a long drive from Cancun airport. All the rooms are in multi-suite villas that are located on both sides of the lobby. The rooms are clean and comfortable with great showers. They only stock pop and beer in the fridge plus provide big bottles of water. We had a room with 3 double beds which was great for me and my two adult daughters. The buffet was down a hall off the lobby so it is a fair walk unless your villa is near the lobby. The main pool is big and noisy. There are smaller pools at each end of the property for the villas farther from the lobby. They both have buffet restaurants beside them for lunch. They say they are open 24 hrs. but there was only coffee out before 10am and after 5pm. The pools also have walk up bars which is nice. There are no servers so you have to get your food/drinks yourself. At least you don't need to tip anyone. You have to come out early to get a lounger and towels. If you show up after lunch, all the loungers are occupied and there are no clean towels. I liked lying out on the loungers on the other side of the pool/restaurant (but not down by the water) as it was quieter (there were at least 3 wedding parties when we were there). The beach sand is nice but there is tons of seaweed in the water. They have guys out there all day every day raking, piling, and hauling to no avail. Every morning, it is all back. There are big cement walls out aways in the water which act as a barrier against the waves so the area that has just been cleared of seaweed is where people will go in the water. It is warm and shallow. There is coral in some spots so really not the best beach if you want to do any serious swimming or playing.
The food was always plentiful and lots of variety. However, most of the a la carte restaurants were at the neighboring resort, Coba. There are trollies that go between the resorts all the time and there's a casino, disco, and market at the main entrance, so there's never a problem getting a ride to wherever you want to go. Coba has a waterpark for kids but we really enjoyed the evening atmosphere better there. It does not have beach access and only one pool so might be quite busy during the day. I was expecting the Maya Riveria to be more "exotic" than it was. Now that I've been to a few all-inclusives, they are pretty much all the same so it's important to go on day trips to actually experience the local culture and beauty.

Be careful of the raw food here!!!!

Be careful of the raw fish at this resort. I ate a raw tuna steak at the international restaurant when I went in December and I'm pretty sure it wasn't frozen properly because a 3 months later I found out I had a tapeworm.

Great Hotel, Excellent Service

We stayed at this resort for my 40th Birthday. The resort was clean, the service was excellent, and staff went out of their way to make us happy. Our best service came from the buffet restaurant. Hipolito Chan was amazing, and went the extra mile for us every time he saw us. We are looking forward to our next trip, and we can't wait to see Hipolito again!
