If you have any questions...
Summary of my visit to the Mayan Palace.
The rooms are very comfortable air conditioning is awesome! We stayed in building #8 close to lobby. Maid and bellhop service is excellent. Food service is slow, but the food was good.
Selective air conditioning -There is NO air conditioning in the lobby, or most of the restaurants.You are left to boil!
Air conditioning is free flowing in the Time Share Shark's sales room and bathrooms. Go figure?
Check out is 10AM It can be a miserable experience if you have to sit in the lobby for more than 30 minutes, waiting for the shuttle. If you have an afternoon flight you are SOL with no other place to go. We cooled off in the bathrooms.
The pool is family friendly hung out there until I saw all the black mold growing in between the tiles. Even worse a guy with snorkel gear was scrubbing the tiles down during my swim! Nasty mold floating around ewww!
The beach area is awful, I was warned by most of you, I tried to have a postive outlook but listen to this...
The first night we arrived we took a stroll down to the beach. Needless to say it was as awful as described. I decided to collect seashells, and after about 20 minutes or so my husband is screaming for me get out of the water! A 4 ft CROCODILE was less than 3 feet away from me. So the rest of the evening we were croc hunting, My husband wanted to be the new croc hunter and catch it. DUH! yeah right. After that I had no desire to get in the water. The beach has rocks all over it and it stinks. Dead sea urchins, old tires, and seaweed help the special aroma only you can experience at the Mayan Palace.
If you want to drink, lay by the dirty pool, and get up at 6AM in hopes of getting a cabana with a bed, this is the place for you!
If you want a nice beach and not feel like a prisoner so far away from everything, go elsewhere.
