Very unique property, it feels like you are in jungle yet are in middle of town 👍 don’t have to walk miles to get to everything like mega resorts ! Excellent beach and restaurant 👌

It's a very nice property with well maintained grounds. Staff was very nice every time we talked with them. Beach was great and hotel was a few blocks away from food and shops. There is an open air bar on property with pool tables, Ping pong and shuffle board.

Mahekal is one of the best places I’ve stayed in my entire life. Book this place above all else without any worry, you will not be disappointed. The staff, location, beauty all around.. it’s magnificent.

The property was unlike any resort I’ve stayed at. Everything was open air and the landscaping was dreamy. Enrique was the best server at Fuego. We did have cockroaches in our palapa room but we expected bugs because of how to rooms are. I was pleasantly impressed with this resort and will be back

The scale and smaller size of the resort made for an easy stay. Everything was just a few minutes away and no waiting in lines or pressure to plan. I didn’t expect the resort to be as beautiful given the proximity to the city. On our first morning we awoke to the most amazing sunrise. We stayed in unit 27 and loved the view of the pool and ocean, yet the tree houses have a neat vibe in a different sense. Definitely would recommend to families and couples.

There was so much to like it would be hard to narrow it down. The property was spectacular, well placed, and unique. The staff was courteous and helpful and the food was top notch! We could have easily stayed for a few more days.

enjoyed my stay at this property, it was'nt very big but it was perfect. It was located on the beach and all the shops were walking distance. Everyone was very helpful. Rosa helped us with all our excursions. Would definitely stay there again

I enjoyed magical stay at the Mahekal Beach Resort & Spa. The palapa rooms provide a unique experience surrounded by a jungle oasis. All of the staff take the time to greet you in passing on the grounds which was a memorable touch as well. Missing the tacos from Las Olas! The highlight of my stay was definitely the spa, Marco and Lorna were so welcoming and attentive. I enjoyed an amazing massage and facial by Lorna. The coast line of that region has an issue with sargassum, but the beach in front of the resort was clear on some days which was nice.

Such a beautiful place. Amazing service and staff, they take pride in their resort and truly creating a magical experience for guests. We will be back hopefully sooner than later!

Mahekal is the perfect place to rejuvenate. The property is gorgeous. My husband and I enjoyed relaxing meals at their restaurant 'Fuego.' For me, the atmosphere (beach front), the exquiste food, and the staff made it the best resturauant I've ever dined at. A special thanks to the morning staff: Rene, Ignacio, Victor, Angel, Sergio, Vianney, and Fernando; and dinner staff: Rogelio, Zury, Marcos, Hullermo, Isamael, Moises, and Wilbert. Muchisimo Gracias, we will continue to come to Mahekal.

This was our first time traveling to Mexico (Playa del Carmen) so we were very happy to be in a unique beach front hotel rather than a high rise. Staff and service were excellent! The rooms were unique and comfortable. Grounds were lovely, staff constantly working to keep them clean and pleasant. Everything we needed was within a few blocks, such as money exchange and good places to eat with live music.

The staff and service is excellent. The property is beautiful and on a great part of the beach. The beach is public but there’s security everywhere making sure the public doesn’t come onto the property. The service on the beach is like no other. We had drinks and lunch brought to us everyday! Nothing negative to say, we loved it.

I loved the unique and quite atmosphere. The place feels like a true tropical get away. No TV I loved it! Front desk staff was friendly but you had to follow up on request. Las Olas restaurant staff was the best and their food was amazing!
