Average food, slow service. The servers are lazy, I just got up and told the bartender, he sent the waiter to the table, so I had to repeat my order. Bad management and organisation, just go with it and don't demand too much. Nice view.

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.
