Room & Suite (561)
When you stay at The Grand Mayan Riviera Maya, you have access to the magical world of Vidanta Riviera Maya. Here a luxury vacationing meets the pristine natural beauty of the Caribbean Sea and Mayan jungle. The days are filled with adventure and relaxation, and the nights bring excitement and fun. Spend your days sipping your favorite cocktail by the breathtaking Mayan Sanctuary pool or on the pure white beach overlooking the crystal waters of the Caribbean. Maybe play a round of golf at the Jack Nicklaus golf course or stroll through the pristine jungle on the wooden pathways. Visit the flamingo and crocodile sanctuaries. Enjoy a tequila massage in the Brio Spa, take a fitness class, or just lounge. At night, Vidanta Riviera Maya comes alive—dance to some Latin beats by the beach, enjoy live music, and party at the Mexican Fiesta. But make sure you see the most talked-about attraction in Riviera Maya—Cirque du Soleil JOYÀ.

I don't even know which building we were in, (it was the most north building, next to some construction (not a big deal if you are not in your room during the day), maybe building 3)); but it was pretty close to the beach and convenient to the pools. We had a one bedroom suite

We started our check-out 2 days before by asking for our bill. We did not receive the credits promised by the sales department of 10% of overall bill and 1/2 of the resort stay fee. Three times we were told it was taken care of. Then the day of check-out it was not. At

The Grand Mayan (Vidanta) provided one of the best vacations I have ever experienced. In fact, it was so good that I purchased 9 weeks of interval ownership. Yes, my winters will be at Vidanta, in the Grand Mayan room.

Vidanta has created a unique style of vacation. The property in the Mayan is beautiful and very well maintained. The property is very large - over 15 blogs. Spread over many’s acres so it takes some patience and getting used to, It offers 3* - 5+* accomodations throughout so

Our stay at the Grand Mayan was a blast. The Joy Squad kept us busy with fun activities and conversation! Alejandro was a great dance instructor and helped us around the resort. Angel led us in blackjack and bingo during our stay, which was some of our favorite activities!

Yes the Ocean is swimmable here. There are small waves where you can frolic and attempt to body surf. But the waves are not great. They don't even compare to the surf in Sayalita. Quite frankly, we observed the ocean waves were better and appeared cleaner than in the Vindanta Property. Remember that facing the ocean from the Vindanta property, you've got the harbor on the right sight.....(who knows what is dumped there and the river to the left adjacent to the Residence building which you are familiar with. Our grandkids did have fun and blast at the Vindanta Beach up toward the Mayan Palace. If you acquire boogie boards, it can be alot of fun. At the Vindanta property, there is a separate vendor on the beach that rents boogie boards either hourly, daily or weekly. It's a rip off. Unfortunately, each night, the boards have to be brought back to the beach vendor by 5:00 pm each day whether you rent for multiple days or weekly. Not convenient since the vindanta beach is best at low tide. Plenty of wave action for the kids in the water past 5:00 pm. If you have a car, take a trip to Walmart. Buy boogie boards for $30 which is the same price as the daily rental rate. You can use them all week then either leave them to some other lucky guest upon departure. Much more cost effective than even the weekly rate. The Grand Mayan is still the closest to the beach. But it is still a walk or cart ride. From the Mayan you got to walk around the pools, past the art's and craft shop; kids wave pool, then to the beach where the showers are located before stepping onto the sand.

"If you are in an 'even' number room at the Grand Mayan, you will face west in most of the buildinngs."
"Try to get a room close to the pools or you will be walking a lot "
"Ensure your room does not look out to the shuttle path."
"The room was fine, with a jacuzzi masters bathroomit was cleaned everyday including the night time"
"Plan well ahead in advance. If you have Children, think about being in a unit location closest to children's activities."
