I was apprehensive after reading several reviews about the Mayan Sea Garden. However, I must say that the resort really is quite nice. The biggest complaint would be the high pressure sales pitch you get if you agree to take the "tour". It only lasts two hours and then it's over and you do get some lucrative discounts for your trouble.
Otherwise the staff were fabulous. The food in the resaurant is average at best. I would stick to lunch by the pool and dinner in town. The drinks at the pool are STRONG so be careful. (They sneak up on you as the day wears on) We found the staff to be excellent in all departments. They were even able to find an ocean view room for us at the last minute.
The rooms in the older building are a little dated, but the views of the ocean and the sunset are to die for. The hotel is pretty far from the Golden Zone and Central Market, but the buses are easy to figure out and it is very safe. It is nice to have the game room and internet room if you are traveling with teenagers. They mingle and make new friends!More
