My husband and I recently had the pleasure of staying at one of the properties managed by Mayan Beach Garden. We wanted to stay close to town and chose Costa Maya Villas, located just north of the light house and an easy walk to shops and restaurants. The beachfront condo was spacious and well equipped with granite counter tops and...

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Costa Maya Villas. I'm not sure how to move this review from Mayan Beach Garden to Costa Maya Villas, but we do manage the condos and therefore I want to thank you for your time and kind comments, albeit from the Mayan Beach Garden review page. I'm gratified that you...

Rooms are clean and large, beds comfortable, Lots of day trips; from ruins to snorkeling a ship wreck. Fishing is good from the beach and better in the lagoons - ask Marsha where Pedro lives. He will rent you a boat and get you into the lagoon for 200 pesos - guaranteed tarpon! Its just sooooo relaxing here and the...

I love the fact that you enjoy Mayan Beach Garden enough to return every year. It's a joy to look forward to all of our returnees and now good friends. I'm glad you had the opportunity to go out with Pedro, I'm sure he enjoyed it at much as you did. You missed the snook fishing in Rio Indio -...

It is so sad to say that this little hotel is excellent in every aspect, but our stay was spoiled by a tremendous and continuous amount of trash all along the beach every day. We were told the trash is from cruise liners dumping out in the ocean. For example, on our first day, my wife picked up a board...

I appreciate your honest review. I too am distressed by the occasional massive amounts of garbage in the water. February was indeed a bad month in 2013. We had a massive cleanup in late February which allowed us to clean up the beaches, cleaning up from storms that had left debris since the coming of Hurricane Ernesto five months previously....

We made an unplanned, unannounced visit to MBG in early September and spent a wonderful couple of hours visiting with Marcia and Kim! Their hospitality was unmatched, considering that we dropped in unannounced The dinner was excellent and satisfying, the drinks were cold and the conversation was lively. We had been to MBG in 2005 and we were amazed at...

We are so happy you stopped by for a meal at our restaurant and to see the surroundings and beach. Things certainly have changed since 2005 - for the better we hope. We do hope to see you again soon and for a longer stay. Have a great year!

Thank you so much for your kind review. I would like to mention a bit about the ATMs in town. There are three, but they are sometimes out of money. We take Credit Cards at Mayan Beach Garden. There are many locations to get money at ATMs elsewhere along the highway and there are plans for more ATMs in town....

Little piece of paradise lost In the middle of nowhere at the Yucatán peninsula. Want to be away from everyone and everything, this is the place. If you choose to stay there might recommend take some groceries and something to drink or Make sure you buy the meal plan. Food is excellent and prices are very reasonable. Thumbs up!!!

Monterrey, Mexico
Reviewed 26 August 2013

A magical place with excellent hosts. The food, while homemade, quality falls short of a good restaurant. Prices are aforable. And the geography of the place, the forest, the beach are to be admired ... shame that the government of Mexico does not take care of the beaches along the nature reserves ... are heavily polluted with garbage.
