"Best vacation by a wide margin"
Our stay at Banyan Tree Mayakoba was the best vacation we have ever had. The private Bliss villas are exactly as pictured on the website. They provide a luxurious and extremely private environment to relax in. As you stay in a mangrove forest crisscrossed by canals the beach is about 15 minutes by foot or less than 5 minutes by the ubiquitous and free golf carts. The restaurants are very high quality and the staff throughout the hotel is extremely helpful and courteous. Present when you need them and invisible when not. We took the dinner boat cruise for two at Banyan Tree and it was extremely romantic and very memorable. The boat cruise and shuttles are great and we saw a lot of wild life from turtles and herons to baby crocodiles. We took a cooking class with Chef Light at Saffron, who is just awesome. He really introduced us to Thai cooking. Chef Light also introduced us to his sister who is the head chef at Tamarind when we dined there and the food and service there was also outstanding. We also booked a Tequila Tasting with Sol. It was very enjoyable and educational. Last but not least, I want to praise Abel Morales at Bayan Tree. He took excellent care of us and was always very helpful, knowledgeable and created a very hospitable atmosphere. I view him as one of the rising stars in the hospitality industry. I am sure I do him injustice by only these few praises. He’ll go far.

"Rosewood Mayakoba"
Wonderful. Staff are exceptional, friendly, warm, and that is everyone from the maintenance worker to the resort manager. Having bikes available to move around the resort was ideal, the butlers make booking excursions and dinners seamless, even helping bubble wrap various items that were purchased. The facilities are great. Pools, beach, water activities (we took two catamaran rides). Food also very good. We were there with our two kids, ages 12 and 10, and they had a great time. A bit too old for most of the kids club activities, but they were never bored with pool, beach, and wi fi everywhere.

"Top Service, great place"
I have had the opportunity to stay in many hotels. This was the best service I have received, the place is amazing, the pools are wonderful, the lake and canals are unique but the best by far was the staff service. Will be back!

"Beautiful, 5 star luxury hotel "
We can not say enough great things about our experience. We felt pampered from the moment we arrived at Grand Velas in the Zen Garden area. Our concierge Maryana was fabulous and so welcoming! The grounds are extremely lush and great for families. The Zen pool makes you feel like you are at the spa and is so relaxing. Unfortunately the restaurant over there (Chaka) was closed making it more difficult to get food. It had to be ordered through room service (via the pool staff), and took awhile. This closure limited dining options at Zen, especially for kids. The short shuttle ride over to The Ambassador section was very efficient and a quick ride. It made it easy to head back and forth between the 2 sections. The Ambassador pool, and the beach are pure paradise and the view is spectacular. The beach sand was the softest white sand we have ever felt and beautifully maintained! Definitely look for Jorge for the best poolside service and drink is that keep flowing. The mango margarita is divine! Top notch, delicious food! We loved the grilled shrimp poolside at Ambassador and the ceviches and guacamole are fabulous. We did lunch there most days. For breakfast, the Azul buffet is wonderful with so much variety. For dinner, we ate at Lucca twice, Azul once, Piaf once and Sen Lin once. All were great, and Lucca and Piaf were our favorites. We wish Sen Lin had a little more for kids, maybe some more recognizable Asian dishes. Overall an amazing resort and vacation, amazing staff!

"Gorgeous Hotel, Amazing Food, Service Spotty"
I was hesitant to do another all-inclusive as the food tends to be average, but this is definitely a resort for the foodie. The food at the restaurants was outstanding. Service at the Pilaf (french) and SunLin (Asian) was top notch. Service at Frida (mexican) and the Bistro (american) was very spotty. In particular, if you are looking to have breakfast or lunch at the Bistro plan for a long stay as they seemed to be a bit short staffed. We did go to one of the buffet restaurants and it was fine for a quick meal for breakfast. Beach is gorgeous, plenty of cabanas and the staff was very attentive to taking orders for food and drink. We stayed in the adult side and the rooms were huge. Had a walk out patio and plunge pool. Great views. Each room has their own butler and ours, Yocelyn, was wonderful. Spa was great although I do have a small gripe. We received a voucher from Expedia but were told we could not use as it was not on a high end service(i.e.,massage). There was no communication of that point. In the end, the spa split the difference with us, but I did feel at a high end resort they should have honored the voucher. But overall it was a great resort with outstanding food for an all inclusive.

    Pocket Guide: Riviera Maya Playa del Carmen 5 stars Hotels

    Still small enough to explore on foot, Playa del Carmen has a relaxed, yet cosmopolitan feel, with a variety of hotels, shops, and restaurants ranging from causal to upscale. European-style sunbathing is common on beaches. Playa is a popular jumping-off point for day trips to Xcaret, Xel-Ha, Tulum, and other peninsula attractions, and a passenger ferry makes frequent runs to Cozumel.
