The spa is a must if you decide to stay here! The staff was very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. I also highly recommend spending time at the pool by the beach. Amazing pool butlers!

We have been twice and highly recommend. The view, weather, food all amazing. Lots to do. We visited Tulum which was well worth the cost. 5th Avenue was worth a visit.

You have to visit at least once! So rich in culture, nature and things to do! The sea, the cenotes, the food, the people are great!

With so many things to see, do and explore throughout the area, Riviera Maya is a delight. A variety of places to stay from budget to luxury. Worth trying a few to find the one that fits your style best.

Since we have traveled here since 1993 we can compare. The area has grown to a huge Commercial tourist area and forgot about the peaceful serene place it used too be. Stay at a nice resort and don't bother leaving your hotel unless you love crowds and tourist traps.

Well it took me 5 years of continuous holidays here to get my mexican wife dicided to move here. At the end of the day we love this place so much that became cheaper to actually buy a house here rather than keep buying airplane tickets!

This is a great area to visit. The people are lovely, the animals and flora are amazing, and there is much to do. We stayed at the Grand Sirenis with our vacation company and we very much enjoyed our stay.

My first time in Mexico and I truly enjoyed every moment. Be sure to bring a camera with you because there are a ton of beautiful things to take photos of. Make sure to stop by here if you're in the area.

This area of the world is absolutely beautiful, and I really wish people would quit calling it "Riviera Maya," as I believe this cheapens it. It's like saying it's this part of the world's version of the real Riviera. And we don't need to compare it to anything, do we? It is a lovely creation with some of the prettiest... More

Booked the tout through Best Day Travel, Cristyan Banco at Ocean Maya Royale. He was very personable and gave us a great deal. The tour was conducted by Alltournative and our personal guide (we had 6 of a maximum 11 in our group) was Aranza. This was an amazing adventure! The time at Tulum was a bit short for my... More
