Ever watch the movie "WestWorld"? That's a bit how this felt.. like we'd walked into another world but one that was not real.. we visited in mid-march to get away from the cold winds and onto a hot beach.. our room, 5211, had a beautiful view but unfortunately the balcony is only big enough to stand on.. no room for sitting.. such a waste. We had a two bedroom suite.. one bedroom had a king size bed and the other two queens.. the bathrooms were large and fine.. You won't find the higher end sheets or towels here.. no pillow top mattresses.. and the towels are oversized but you won't need to bring your exfoliators (smile). The two couches in the living room made into trundle beds... all fine... The weird part was that we were in and out of those rooms 1/2 dozen times a day and only one time did I see another human being in the hallway.. it was just a bit weird.. almost spooky.. We saw people checking in.. and then never saw them again.. weird.. it's a bit of a hike to the pool or the beach.. the pool is huge but has none of the amenities of the Grand Mayan pool like swim up bars or in pool loungers... and don't think you can get into the Grand Mayan pools because you can't (color coded bracelets).. you're supposed to be able to eat at any of the over priced restaurants on the "compound" which is comprised of the Mayan Palace, The Grand Mayan, Bliss, and Grand Luxxe but we were made to feel "less than" on several occasions after being escorted out by security.. there's a reason the armbands at the Mayan Palace are a boring beige..
The worst part was the timeshare part.. if I ever stay in another timeshare property again, I will say "no" to the timeshare spill from the very beginning.. not worth the time.. or frustration.. at least that's my opinion.. I'm in paradise and would rather not have to deal with these type of people and trying to sort truth from lies.. just not worth it...
So, would I stay there again? Yes but I would spend most of my time "off" compound. We got a great deal and a week was only $300... if I'd had to pay what was posted?? NO WAY!
