It looks good, it sounds good but we had a dozen drinks and left completely sober. Not that we were trying to get drunk, but every drink could not taste any alcohol. When we asked for a shot to try the tequila straight, our thoughts...More

Hi TequilaRon777, I am sorry you think that, probably you got used to other places that use pure alcohol for the open bar drinks. But with that kind of alcohol clients can feel really sick. We use a real mexican tequila brand, is 8% lighter...More

This is a beautiful beach great for swimming. We bought the all inclusive package and were not disappointed. It comes with a huge meal of tacos, quesadillas, nachos, salsa, and guacamole. It was all good but the guacamole was amazing. We got a little cabana...More

No doubt about it--the Italian ownership here knows how to put together a playlist. Not the "boom-boom" music or 80s music or traditional Mexican music you tend to hear elsewhere on the Malecon. Makes for a place you can chill for a long while, enjoying...More

We booked and prepaid through Shore Fox.com for an all day getaway. Beach area was clean, sand soft and the swimming area cordoned off so boats would not interfere with swimmers. The water was shallow but pleasant and clear. We were introduced to our server...More

We were there for a Dive with Doctor Dive located at yaya. It was a quaint little area, we didn't spend much time there as we were out diving, I was somewhat amazed at the 3 sleeping dogs hanging out around the bar area.

Response from Rachel H | Reviewed this property |
we did not see the shuttle the day we went so we grabbed a taxi. I think it was $2 per person.
How does tipping work? Do we tip as we go or when we leave?

Hi, you can tip the waiter when you leave. Best regards Gabriel

Trying to figure out how this would work. We have two adults and a three year old. We don't drink a lot (but might enjoy a margarita or beer). Also, my parents (in their 80's) may or may not wish to come, depending how they feel that day, What package would you recommend?

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.
