I love Mayakoba and frequent the Rosewood Mayakoba but thought I would give this one a shot. Amazing altogether- service impeccable - you will feel like royalty while on holiday. The villas are unbelievable , it's like your own private hideaway- romantic and you feel special staying here

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a site of almost mythical beauty. It flawlessly blends elegance and nature, taking the Caribbean lifestyle to an unprecedented new height. A breathtaking getaway for relaxation, rejuvenation, romance and world-class dining, it is also the region's most sustainable five-star resort. With its revitalized culinary concepts, Thai-inspired therapies at the Banyan Tree Spa, 14 event-venues and the Greg Norman signature 18- hole El Camaleon golf course, home to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Classic, the resort raises the bar for premium leisure options and event planning. Perfect for private getaways, family trips and group events, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers 118 villas, ranging from romantic Bliss and Serenity Pool Villas to Family Residences and Ocean Front Villas. All include outdoor areas with private pools and terraces. Inspired by the interior courtyards of houses in the Far East, each villa is discreetly built to blend with the landscape, integrating the interiors and their idyllic surroundings. East meets West in every subtle detail, from the fragrance of flowers encircling your villa, to the softness of a kimono, fine linens and essential oils on your skin. Here, even world-weary guests discover the eloquence of tranquility. ... more   less

“The rooms were excellent, and the daily cleaning and turndown service had no interference with our own timing. It just happened when we were gone, and was completed with excellent proficiency and tastefulness. We have no further suggestions for improvement, as it exceeded our expectations.”
