Mayaland Hotel And Bungalows

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was our second stay at Mayaland. The first time was perfect staying in the standard room. This time, just okay. We had a superior room and our friends had the standard. The superior has beautiful woodwork but needs serious updating. The sink was cracked, the caulk in tub worn and furniture on the x-large patio falling apart. The standard room looks like the photos including a Jacuzzi tub with a giant window overlooking the property. There is a huge closet as you walk in the room. My advice, opt for the standard room, its much better. Also the hotel was crowded this time of year so there wasn't the personal attention we received the first time we stayed (which was early September).

Great place to hang while exploring the ruins, saves a lot of time that would be spent driving or riding a bus

We booked and stayed at this property for 2 nights for its proximity to the Chichen Itza archaeological site. Pros: you can walk to the site through a separate entrance in the back, ticket lines at this entrance are minimal and it is a breeze compared to the main entrance. The grounds of the hotel are well maintained and there is a fairly large pool ( unheated). There is also a good sized parking lot. Cons: No elevator, it can be a pain to haul luggage and yourselves up and down if u gave a room on the third floor. Although it did not bother us, the birds get quite noisy in the early morning hours preventing any sleeping in. The room amenities are quite basic for the tariff charged.

Great location & Beautiful Grounds, well kept. Rooms are large & well clean, but plumbing leaves something to be desired! The hotel has been updated, but the plumbing hasn't. A new room was offered, but this would have been #3 (1st was incorrect - 2 double beds instead of the King bed reserved). The staff was excellent.

Lo wonderfull place in matan jungle Love the place What else Good food

The hotel is walking distance from the Mayan Pyramids with private entrances which helps avoid ticket lines. It's a hotel in a park with birds tweeting, beautiful tropical trees; there is even a resident peacock! We enjoyed our stay thoroughly. The food at the hotel was delicious. Highly recommended!

The food was wonderful and the staff very Attentive. Very clean hotel and grounds.

This was a great resort right on site at Chetza Nitza, so fun. The compound it self was not only amazing but very true to the culture with a special feeling about the place. The breakfast was awesome and beyond reasonable. They should include bottle water in the room for free. We will be back wish had more time. You should stay here some time. Grounds are awesome. Secret access to the ruins no waiting.

My stay was for a very short trip to see the Chichen Itza ruins. The staff was great. We had a great guide, Victor, to show us the ruins!

Very nicely kept grounds, well groomed vegetation, very close to Chichen Itza, which is the best thing about the place. No amenities though, so you pay extra high prices for everything, including breakfast and WATER !!!! That's how they get you :-) Place for wealthy and elderly, not active and adventurous.

There are many complements I can provide for this Hotel, however I am going to focus on three: 1.- The facilities are extraordinary. The balance and combination of ancient history with modern comfort are perfect. You can enjoy your stay at the hotel or bungalows and enjoy the beautiful historic natural environment. 2.- Service, you will be pleasantly surprise of the staff professionalism (not over done) and authentic local humbleness and beauty of the people of Yunatan. Multiple languages are spoken. 3.- You can't find better for the price. The rates are very reasonable for this quality.

We rented car and drove from Playa del Carmen and stayed at thie hotel for 2 nights.The hotel was charming and the grounds perfectly manicured. We booked a Mayan suite with in room jacuzzi. Our room was comfortable with a very large balcony. The hotel has a private entrance to Chichen Itza, so we toured with a private guide (before the heat and the crowds) from 8-11 and then I went back around 3:00 on my own. We went back a 3rd time at 7:00 for the (new, much improved) light show. You have to go to the main entrance for this. The food was excellent and the price was fine for a remote resort hotel. Lucia stopped by our dinner table on the 2nd night to speak to us. After finding out it was birthday, she brought dessert and singing waiters, making it a very memorable evening. . I highly recommend this resort!

We stayed in a room with Garden View with a balcony - 2 double beds. It was perfectly clean. The room has a large window wall that goes to the balcony. We didnt go to the balcony due to the possible mosquitos, but the view through the glass wall was great. After we went to Chichen Itza (through a quiet private entrance), checked out the room of course, we realized we left our camera in the room. After the trip in Chichen Itza, we went back to the hotel, the camera was there waiting for us ! And we had lunch there afterwards, yes, some mosquitos in the restaurant, but no complaint. By the way, the breakfast was great too. Oh, finally, the hot water valve has a letter "C", it does not stands for "cold", but "clienta", or hot. :-)

Great place Staff was the best! Catered to every ned . Very friendly and helpful. Made the stay even better. Being so close to the pyramid was a big plus. Prices were very good for food and drink, was amazed at how little the bill was. Would highly recommend this hotel .A great place to stay.

we stayed in a bungalow that was right next to a beautiful pool. it was an incredible place to stay. beautiful inside ! the bungalow did have a net for the bed but some mosquito did get through so just make sure to bring some bug spray ! great location very close walk to the entrance of Mayan ruins! excellent food free parking if you rented a car and great staff !! it's a no brainier this is the place you want to be ! it is also very close to the Ik-kil which is an unbelievable experience ! stay here!!

This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting Chichen Itza. The gardens are wonderful and have their own private entrance to the historical site. The hotel itself is very beautiful. The rooms are a little dated but nice. My only quibble is the lack of ac plugs but everything else is nice. The restaurant was nice but expensive -- you are kind of trapped with not many food options since you are in a slightly remote location. I highly recommend this place.

The hotel has a very historic look and architecture. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. We stayed in room 23 (third floor, corner room) which looks out over a huge tree. The branches spread out so far, it gives the impression of being in a tree house. Sitting on the balcony, we listened to many birds and other jungle sounds. No one noticed us sitting up there, so it was fun to people watch as they strolled through the gardens. At the end of the hall outside our room, there is a great view of the observatory ruins (El Caracol). At night, the hotel shines a spotlight on it, giving a mystical ambiance. The rear entrance to Chichen-Itza ruins is less than a 100 meters from the hotel. This entrance is mainly for guests of the three hotels located in the vicinity. Suggest getting to the park as they open (8:00 am), before the tour buses arrive.

We were just looking for 1 night close by Chichen Itza ruins and pick Mayaland for its good location. We found a great hotel, almost inside the ruins with a fantastic service attention. We would love to go back and spend more time to enjoy this fantastic hotel in the middle of the jungle with the quality of a five star hotel.

Great room overlooking some of the maya ruins. Fantastic surroundings. Friendly staff.

Right next to the archeological zone. Decent restaurant although the menu is quite limited. Free wireless in the lobby area. Be warned that this place has a resort feel but serves its purpose well.
