Best experience ever!

This hotel was a perfect place to celebrate our anniversary! The villas are beautiful and very romantic, the service was better than expected, and the food was delicious. I also highly recommend the Spa, my package included a free 60 minute massage and it was fantastic. The massage was great, but the ambience of the treatment rooms and the service from the attendant and lobby staff made the experience one I won't forget

Nothing Special

Our vacation was fine, but nothing special. The amenities were average at best for a beach resort and the food presented a real problem. No where in the resort could I just buy a snack. There was no convenience shop and,all the restaurants were absurdly expensive. This was especially a problem with kids. Do you really want to spend $35-$50 for lunch for a,14 year old?

Amazing Couple Getaway

This was our 2nd trip back to the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This hotel is absolutely spectacular. The decor is spa like simplicity with beautiful Mexican touches throughout with vast views and structures. The staff is amazing; thinking of every need and then some. This is a luxury hotel and more. The food is delicious especially at Saffron and Tamarind for dinner. They outdo themselves at the Oriente for breakfast. Loved having lunch at the Reflection Pool. Efren makes the best Cucumber Daiquiri and Spa Cocktail!!!!!! Wait til you see how amazing the villas are.... If I had to make one suggestion for the Banyan Hotel it would be to heat the pools; very chilly but otherwise this hotel is unbelievable and we will definitely be back again and again.

Best resort ever!

The Banyan tree is filled with understated elegance with an asian flair, impeccable service and a perfect setting for a vacation. The rooms are all villas/townhouses, which makes even the most occupied days seem low key and comfortable. Rather than the "big building hotels" where you are surrounded by people, fight for space at the beach or pool, you never feel the crowd or pressure. Food is expensive, but great. Staff is amazing. Anything you want, just dial 0 on the phone. Would go back in a heartbeat. Private pools on the roofs are not heated, but fun, and the lagoon boat ride to the beach is not to be missed. The gallery on the website does not do it justice.
