o.k I've had it. So, if I'm not mistaken people who write reviews on this forum must have read prior reviews right?? well then they should of known that the beach has sandbags? TylerB123 this message is for you....who complains that the Viva Wyndham Maya has 20 tv channels and only 5 are in English, the staff barely spoke English - did you not remember landing in Mexico or did you think you were still in New England - next time take time to read the multiple reviews that are on this site. I on the other hand cannot afford to take my kids to a 5 or 4 star hotel but hey how fortunate am I to be able to afford a 3 or 3.5 star!! and guess what? I'm practicing my Spanish and have every intention on having a great time. When you want the amenities of a 4 or 5 star resort then book it!!
