So it had been 5 or 6 years since we had last been to Playa Maya (and we think this was either our 4th or 5th time staying at Playa Maya!!!) The minute we got there it was as if we'd never been away; it was EXACTLY as we remembered, and we couldn't have been happier about that! From our check-in w/Pedro, to the cleanliness of our room each day and the wonderful towel art by Ruby, to the exceptional service at the restaurant by Jesus, Luciano, Carlos, Racile and everyone, to the wonderful beach/chair/umbrella attendants, we couldn't have had a better time. The staff is so friendly and accommodating and really goes out of their way to make sure you're happy and enjoying yourself. We feel as if we're all friends. It's the little things like bringing me my "te' negro" at breakfast before I have to ask for it. Menu has plenty to choose from each day. The comp breakfast is great if you just want to stick to that. The fish tacos are wonderful at lunchtime! The location is hard to beat and you wake up each day looking at the beautiful ocean. We enjoyed staying at the hotel for breakfast and lunch then venturing out to 5th Ave. for the shops and dinner. We were surprised by an upgrade when we got there and would recommend room 201. Thanks Stephen!!! Snorkeled a bit one day right in front of the hotel. Saw a few critters. The beach was much nicer than we remembered. Nice and sandy and no rocks as you walk out to the water. I felt safe the one night I walked back by myself (husband had to have one last cigar before we left!) as I knew the guard was there. Can’t wait to get back.
