This is the most magical vacation you can imagine. We have visited numerous times over the past ten years but this was the first time we took our children and grandchildren with us. To see this exquisite hotel through a child’s eyes was the most beautiful experience. The reaction to them walking through the gate to the villa and seeing the private pool and jacuzzi was priceless. The joy of seeing the plentiful breakfast buffet and chocolate Nutella all over their faces as they feasted on pancakes was joyful. And when they walked into the restaurants and the staff greeted they as family melted our hearts. Five days was not enough for them and they assured their new”friends “ that they would come back next week. The vacation would not have been as wonderful without the amazing staff starting from the top. The general manager is engaging and friendly as is the hotel manager. The executive chef, Alfonso, took our grandchildren into the kitchen to make personal pizzas. The chef at Cello, Sara, made us and exquisite tasting dinner which even my 6 year old grandson feasted on. And when we went to breakfast each morning the hostess, Jasmine, engaged them lovingly. They were convinced she was the Jasmine from movie. I have mentioned only a few of the amazing employees. Each and every employee is is like family. We have seen young employees grow up and assume more important roles. They seem to always be there as we continue to visit year after year that says a lot for a hotel to keep their staff even after the events of the past two years. If you question where to go on your next vacation don’t hesitate to go tho the Banyan Tree Mayakoba.

We just got back from 8 days at the Banyan Tree resort with the entire family for the Thanksgiving holiday. Everything about the resort is a perfect 10. We had 2 different rooms. My wife and I stayed in one of their brand-new beach front suites. Maybe one of the most beautiful hotel rooms we have ever stayed in. The kids were in a 3-bedroom villa which was kept perfectly and had plenty of room. As for the staff, everyone who worked there could NOT have been nicer. Each nicer then the next. If you run into Gilmore and Charley at the beach, be sure to say hello. They did a fantastic job and could not be nicer people. One of the highlights of the trip was an in villa bbq we did. Our waiter was Pepe who again did an amazing job. But he blew it out of the water when he sang happy birthday with one of the most beautiful voices I have ever heard. Can’t wait to go back. This property is a MUST.

We LOVE the Banyan Tree! I have stayed at several Banyan Tree's around the world, as well as 4 other hotels in and around the Mayakoba area and this resort is excellent.... Incredible customer service, fantastic amenities, delicious restaurants and clean spacious rooms. We have now visited twice -- once for our anniversary as a romantic getaway, and again just now with our 2 kids and the grandparents for a family friendly Thanksgiving. The hotel is super COVID safe which made us feel relaxed and comfortable. We have twice stayed in the Beach Front Ocean View Suites -- which are SOO special! You have your own personal pool, spa hot tub, and outdoor shower. The rooms are new, clean, spacious and steps from the ocean -- really a treat! Customer service is essential at all times, but especially when you are on vacation -- The Banyan Tree excels here, let by the resorts friendly manager Ingo. The incredible concierge team (Luis and Gena) went out of their way to make sure our stay was planned and running smoothly from breakfast through to bedtime, Charlie (Carlos) at the beach made sure we were well fed and taken care of at the beach all day, (in addition to reserving our beach chairs every day) the ladies at the kids club kept our little ones entertained all day long, and the massage therapists at the spa were incredible! Book this hotel now, you will not be disappointed! We are already planning our next trip!

A solid choice.  Traveling during these covid times can be worrisome but we felt safe here.  All the staff wore masks.  Our beachfront 2 queen bed suite was perfect for our family of 4 (two teenage daughters).  Plenty of room and thoughtful design.  Banyan Tree Mayakoba  was recently awarded the Hospitality Design HD Award 2021 for these Suites and you can see why.   The Bathroom !!!  Fabulous Steam shower plus an Outdoor shower and outdoor jacuzzi.  The spacious outdoor living area with a private plunge pool and day bed was super enjoyable .   Highly recommend it.  Every Suite is facing the ocean.  These Suites are located next door to their Sands Beach Club.  Every morning we walked next door to The Beach Club where they serve an excellent a la carte breakfast (Thanks for the wonderful service Arturo!).  Also at The Beach Club is the pool with the best view at the resort (we had the same view from our suite).  In the evening, it is a great seafood restaurant.    One of the highlights of Mayakoba is El Camaleon Mayakoba golf course.  I don’t golf,  but Holes 14 and 15 were located near the beachfront and our suite so I rode my bike over to watch my Hubby play.    This is a beautiful property on a gorgeous stretch of beach.   Well maintained by hard working staff working in the background.  They were out there in the early hours of the morning cleaning the grounds and the beach for our enjoyment.     Everyone we encountered was friendly and always happy to assist.   The feedback we provided after our Rainforest experience seemed to be well received by the Spa.   Thanks to Raul, our personal concierge, who was always reachable by text message.  He would also find us during breakfast at the Sands Beach Club each morning to checkin and see if we needed anything.  Thanks to Orvlando for taking good care of us on the beach.  He kept us well stocked with bottles of water to stay hydrated in the sun.  He also would make sure that people didn’t come and occupy the sun loungers that are designated for our suite.  It happened but he took care of it and took care of us  Special thanks to the housekeeping staff of suite 906 that worked wonders (we never saw them) refreshing our suite to perfection twice a day.   We encountered so many friendly faces this weekend. I wish I could mention them all.   Thank you Mr Brieke and your wonderful team for a most delightful mini escape.  We felt safe and truly spoiled!
