While this resort is expensive, you get what you pay for. They do a tremendous job of providing an incredibly memorable and unique experience. The staff love their jobs and their friendliness and quality of service reflect that. I've been to many resorts where I can't remember the names of anyone who helped. At the Rosewood, I can name 5-10...

All staff was very friendly and helpful. You never need to leave your suite they have everything you need. The private pools and outdoors showers were amazing, and perfectly situated so the only things you see from your suite is nature and wildlife. The grounds are very lush.

The most beautiful resort with the most amazing staff. Our room near the beach was the best. Bicycles to get around the resort! Was the greatest family vacation. Visit their own cenote right on the property.

I loved this resort. The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. The staff could not be more accommodating. The location is breathtaking. Food and drinks are very pricey though. The spa was so relaxing and the treatments were perfect.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Rosewood Mayakoba is situated on the Riviera Maya. This luxury resort in Mexico offers spacious suites and is located south of Cancun and north of the charming seaside village of Playa del Carmen.Surrounded by the emerald embrace of the jungle and caressed by warm Carribbean breezes, is a resort of rare luxury and indulgence. Rosewood Mayakoba is imbued with the unique spirit of Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. A journey to this serene world, immersed in the dense green perfume of the jungle, captivates the soul with unimaginable tropical beauty,and pure, simple refinement. The ecological enclave of Mayakobá is a new, enlightened model of true luxury hospitality that celebrates the land without compromising it. Mayakoba embraces the government restrictions on development and mangrove preservation which has always been a top priority for the developers and designers. The Madrid-based construction company OHL, with 25 years of experience in Mexico, owned the land for many years before choosing how to build upon it. ... more   less
