Wonderful stay

Would recommend Sat, Oct 4, 2014
We had a perfect 5 days at the Banyon Tree Mayacoba. The villas are private and luxurious, with very nice amenities including private swimming pool in your yard area, very high cielings, gated prívate courtyard, Bose Wave Radio, stone and wood finishes, Lavazzo coffee maker, free standing double granite vanity in the idle of the bathroom, large well appointed walk in closet, private lagoon front, etc. our only complaint is the price of the food /drinks vs the quality (very expensive, below average quality). We will come again, but will try to go out for meals more often.

Anniversary Trip

Would recommend Wed, Sep 3, 2014
Booked a spa pool villa and could not have been more pleased with the privacy, cleanliness, and comfort of the villa. We were in the offseason and the resort seemed very quiet, which suited our expectations. The dining options are a bit limited, but sufficient. I really enjoyed all the Mayakoba grounds and would recommend the bike rental for heading to the beach or using the nature trail. Hopefully, we'll be back soon!

Not really a 5 Star experience

Would not recommend Fri, Jun 6, 2014
Staff is very friendly - but the entire experience lacks that something special to make it a true 5-star property. Banyan Tree doesn't measure up with Capella Ixtapa. During our stay we were always on the waiting list for bicycles even though we only saw 3 guests ever on a bike (many staff members however) We walked everywhere and the constant staff golf carts coming and going made it a less than peaceful stroll. Breakfast buffet at $50 a head is way over priced. Saffron was fine - but not great. We had a Spa Pool Villa and were told we would see a few boats go by at 6pm and that would be it. That was not true, there were boats going by all day (again - staff) It is overall an awkward place. The distances are large - you can't get a bicycle - walking is playing "dodge the maintenance carts" which leaves you being shuttled by.....a golf cart.

Excellent hotel, elegant and beautiful

Would recommend Wed, May 28, 2014
This is a beautiful hotel with enormous villas. The villas were nicely designed, there are minor little maintenance and cleaniness issues (mildew at shower faucet handle). Service was excellent, prompt and attentive. We did a private yoga class which was not so great, room was dark and small, teacher was late. We complained and they waived the fee. We later learned we could have scheduled yoga on the beach which would have been great. The beach and pool attendants are excellent! Food was excellent as well. We went into town which was not as nice as the hotel. Overall a wonderful place for vacation.

Dining

We took a taxi into town at Playa del Carmen. It was very touristic and not very nice. The hotel recommended a seafood restaurant which was okay, not great. Food was better at the hotel.

We (me, my wife and 3-year old son) had a great time. The staff were fantastic. The villa and ood was very good. The only downside was lack of an active kids club. (Too few kids were around and it was not open one of the days)

Without question one of the most relaxing resorts to be found. Fortunate to have stayed in an ocean front villa...what a treat! Food, service and all amenities first rate. Special gratitude to Juan- Manuel, whose first class management of the beach section of the hotel is second to none. Will return again!
