Just returned yesterday from 6 days and 5 nights at the Mayan Palace in NV. My husband and I were sad to leave. The place is just beautiful inside and out. The customer service was excellent. The place was spotless, shining and romantic. I don't recommend taking small children if you want peace and quiet. This was our first trip alone (without 4 teenagers) and we were in heaven. I don't understand why somebody would want to come here and push a stroller (been there and done that). The grounds and scenery were breathtaking. The service on the beach and bars was excellent. The timeshare people DO take no for an answer if you politely tell them that you are not interested. We already have a timeshare so it was not an issue. The hotel arranged for transportation from the airport to the hotel at our landing at 1330. They were waiting for us with a sign, drove us to the hotel and we got checked in right away at about 1400. There were no lines, or waiting.
The restaurants were fabulous with views of the ocean, flowers, music and peace. We felt like we were in paradise. We took the bus (3 of them to the downtown area) That was OK, but quickly returned to the resort for more quiet time. WORD OF ADVICE, TAKE A CAB DOWNTOWN AND BACK IT'S ONLY ABOUT $15.00 EACH WAY AND WORTH NOT TAKING THE BUS!
DON'T LISTEN TO ANYONE COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS PLACE, IT WAS SO NICE WE DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE.
Even the people were beautifully manicured. All wore white, and I mean bright white clothes, with perfect hair, smiles and customer service. We enjoyed it so much we did not visit the Sea Garden part of the resort.
The Grand Mayan was Ok, it is busier at that part of the resort. I heard the rooms are a bit nicer, but Mayan's rooms were just fine. No carpeting in the rooms though, bring socks to keep feet warm at night! The beach at Mayan was more peaceful than at the Grand Mayan. The pool looked cleaner at the Mayan and more manicured.
We recommend staying at the Mayan Palace in NV anytime over the Grand Mayan (still under partial construction). I will go back anytime with my husband. I don't think teenagers would find much to do, and we would not want them going downtown alone. Leave them home if you can, and because it's a paradise in itself alone, you really don't want to push a stroller either. We have gone to several timeshares and have never seen such a beautiful place! Going back soon.
