Someone said you can't have as much fun on the second visit to a vacation spot as you did on the first visit. This is not true at Maya Beach Hotel. This trip was like going home to family. John and Ellen (the owners) remembered the things we enjoyed on the first trip and enhanced them. This time we stayed in the "Flip Flop Palace" which overlooks the beautiful beach and blue waters of the Caribbean. The "Palace" had a full kitchen stocked with cook ware and a full size refrigerator. The room was clean and quiet. Maid service was performed while we were gone. We had fresh flowers on the bed when we arrived. What else could you ask for?
John still performs miracles in the kitchen. The food at Maya Beach is worth the visit even if the Caribbean wasn't 75 feet away. Get the coconut shrimp for an appitizer. Spend some time at the bar and get to know Leo and Avi. Ask for Cedric to serve you at your table. They will fill your visit with funny stories and happiness that comes from living in paradise. The service is impeccable.
Cleve is the concierge. He will arrange excursions and handle the smallest of details. Ellen always has a watchful eye on everything and makes sure you are comfortable. She recommend we stopped at a local tamale stand on one of our excursions and the food was fantastic.
A week (or just a few days) at Maya Beach is an absolute wonderful vacation. The accomodations are great and you are treated as family. Well worth the trip.
