First of all this is a beautiful resort with beautiful landscaping and is meticulously maintained. The two bedroom unit was spacious and well appointed except for the kitchen. It was very small,not well appointed and the fridge was too small as you will see in the picture.
Thr Mayan Palace is just one of the many hotels in the 'Mayan Compound' and has the fewest amenities compared to the others. You are not allowed to use facilities at their other hotels. We did have a pass to go elsewhere since we took the presentation.
While the unheated pool and beach are very nice it is a long walk to get there. They cannot be seen from the hotel. There is no hot tub and the children's play area very basic compared to the Grand Mayan kids fun facilities.
We took the sales presentation so we were able to spend the day at the Grand Mayan. You walk out the door of this hotel to their many warmer pools, terrific lazy river and many shady and private spots to relax. There are many places for kids to have fun. The kids' pool -playground is the best.
Some of the other hotels in the complex are the Grand Lux 1,2,3 and the Bliss. The firm is in the process of building 3 additional hotels and a train to the airport (?).
The 90 minute welcome breakfast presention was as usual 5 hours. The breakfast was excellent with many, many choices. This is a very slick well organized time share selling operation. It was two hours before the pitch began. My advise is to do your research before buying any timeshare and don't be pressured into signing on the spot.
The hotels here charge about $7.00 per hour for internet. There is NO FREE WIFI .
To get around the property they offer shuttles to the other hotels and to the main gate.To buy groceries it will cost you a cab ride about $6.00 each way as it is some distance from the compound. If you want to eat off premises you will have to walk the 15 minutes past the gate to get to several nice restaurants and there you can board a free trolley that takes you around the other hotels in the region.
In summary while the resort is nice, the location is too isolated for me and the most enjoyable place for a family would be to stay at the Grand Mayan. Security is excellent and you always feel very safe.
