Pros: 1. Beautiful pools. 2. Wonderful walking paths throughout the property. Take heed, though, if it's been raining. There are some slick spots that can catch you off guard. 3. Beautiful, well-kept grounds. 4. Drinking water and ice were worry-free. 5. Complimentary shuttle to the property from the airport. 6. Every employee encountered was friendly, and bilingual, for those of...

Spent a week at the Grand Mayan last month on an RCI exchange, first and last time in a resort of this size. We spent an excruciating 3 hours with the sales team which we thought we needed to do as part of the timeshare swap, brutal way to get $150 in credit. Anyway, the property is huge, well thought...

The resort is gorgeous, don't get me wrong, I am sure most of you will have a great time there on vacation. Very elegant and first class looking. The pools are great if you're into swimming or just lounging. But, I just have to report that things were stolen from our room. I didn't get it at the time but...

We stayed here for one week in February on an RCI exchange. We were in a one bedroom unit in Building 6. I read lots of reviews about this property and many of them suggested that you request Buildings 1-6. I would confirm that suggestion. This property is crazy huge and unless you want to spend your entire vacation waiting...

My husband's first time in Mexico, I usually go with family and friends. He was impressed with the resort, cleanliness, friendliness and service. The pools are wonderful but what I love about this resort is the staff and service they provide. We messed up our safe number and they were there and had it open for us in less than...

We stayed here for one week on a timeshare exchange. We had a huge 2 bedroom unit in the Jungle area (Building 13). We were on the third floor and looked out on the golf course. The unit was immaculate and the daily maid service was wonderful. We were a long way from the lobby, but we enjoyed the exercise...

We just returned from our week stay. We have stayed here three times previously, this was our first visit back after three years. The resort is well maintained and beautiful.
