I live in Mahahual and Nacional Beach Club is one of my favorite spots. Evan and the gang are super cool and the chilaquiles con puerco (basically breakfast nachos with smoked pork belly) are to die for. Throw in a screwdriver with their on the spot squeezed orange juice and your day is off to a good start!

Ported at Costa Maya and took a taxi to the little town of Mahahual. Didn't know what to expect. Walked up and down the beach and by chance, stopped at this spot. The service was excellent, always with a smile. The drinks were large, loaded and really cheap (after coming from a cruise ship). The margaritas, rum punch and pina... More

This place is not only pretty, it has great food and customer service. The owner only allows 10 people on his section of the beach at a time, so you get total attention to anything you need! The beach is clean; the water crystal clean and blue. There was some seaweed that was roped off, as is anywhere in the... More

After a snorkeling excursion with Gypsea Divers, National Beach Club neighbor, we had a MAGNIFICENT lunch and were invited to spend the rest of our day under the shade or their umbrellas, in their hammocks and on their beach. It was a MOST EXCELLENT DAY!

My wife and I stayed at Nacional Beach Club and Bungalows for a few days in March. Our room on the Malecon was great, breakfast is included with the hotel stay and was very good, I recommend any of the omelets. At night we had a drink by the pool looking at the Caribbean, great place to stay

First of all, I had never even heard of Costa Maya (Mahahual). I thought it was just an extra port they threw in the itinerary that wouldn't have any real attractions. But we booked an excursion at Nacional Beach Club & Bungalows and OMG! It turned out to be "the best" part of the entire cruise! Evan and his crew... More
