“Liz was WONDERFUL!!!”
Reviewed 21 January 2013

We visited Costa Maya from the cruise ship. We booked this All Inclusive day at the beach of the Hotel Quinto Sole. This was an amazing, fabulous, memorable day for all of us! We had full body massages, lots yummy drinks, chicken nachos, shrimp coctail, and the best guacamole and chips ever! Our hostess for the day was Liz, a fantastic and hospitable young lady whom became our friend after a long day on the beach. Liz has a contageous smile and loves her job! If ever in Costa Maya, go see Liz at this hotel...no second thoughts!

We have spent a week in this Hotel. The Hotel it self is one of the best in Mahahual, from what we have seen, when it comes to the standard you get, the rooms are very nice and the hotel is very clean. We had a very nice view on the sea side, the beach, the little road for pedestrinas along the beach. There is plenty of room for storage, the showeroom is nice, it is all spacy. There is also a nice balcony for private use. The service is OK, but not the best.
What we did not fancy was: First of all, we had no idea that this place was very noisy, but at day time the neighbours beside are playing very loud music all day long, and it keeps on going in the evening as well. During the week we stayed, we also suffered from very loud music two nights (it goes on each Saturday night). It went on until 5am and 5.30 am on New Year's Eve. We simply could not sleep as it felt that our bed was lying in the middle of a discotheque (I am only exagerating a bit). The fact is that Quinto Sole is located in betwen a Beach Club and a huge bar (with no windows or closed walls). The giant bar transforms into a discotheque late in the evening. It is such a shame as without this problem it could have been a very pleasant stay, but it wasn't.
The other negative thing is that the Restaurant was below average. Each time we tried to order somethinh from the menue, that was son easy to get everywhere else, it was not available. It is also more expensive than all other places we have been too, where the food was much better. This appies to breakfast as well. This came as another surprise for us.
At last be aware that wi-fi did not work from the bedroom.
PS: Mahahual is anice place, but it is not as clean as Akumal, which was wonderful.
Mahahual is clean as long as you stay outside or in front of the private domains for each hotel or restaurant. 5 meters aside it is a different thing unfortunately!

Tack för dina synpunkter, firar vi att de gillade hotellet och som för de problem de hade bara velat säga att faktiskt buller för årets slut datum, men det är inte vanligt, än mindre i Mahahual.
På frågan om service och restaurang, ber vi om ursäkt och vi har redan vidtagit åtgärder. Akumal och Mahahual är naturligtvis olika, är det första ett område som är känt och mycket turism är Mahahual en oupptäckt paradis, som är i sin linda och har ingen annan utväg städer utveckling.

Tack igen,

We got off our cruise ship with nothing planned. We took a $2/pp cab ride (south) into town. We asked to go to "Senior Frogs" and this gem was right next door. WIFI, beach, drinks and massages outdoors ($25/30 min) we strolled further south for shopping, and lunch.
We did not stay overnight, but they were a great place to visit for the day.

This hotel is located in a sleepy seaside setting - perfect for relaxing after the riguors of Mayan pyramid-climbing! Members of staff are friendly & unrushed. Rooms overlook beach or wetland wildlife - your choice. Love the alfresco jacuzzi (with a fab view along coast) on the roof & massage beds on beach. Only downside is when a cruise ship comes in to the terminal a couple of miles up the coast & (seemingly) the whole ship come to Señor Frog's next door for an all-inclusive booze, beach & pool package - absolute bedlam! Noise is so loud that those of a delicate nature would be advised to research cruise schedules & arrange daytrips away from Mahahual then. We would definitely stay here again however.

My wife and I scoped out several hotels in Mahahual before settling on Quinto Sole, and we are so glad we did! The rooms are immaculate with wonderful views, the staff was very friendly, helpful, and accomodating. Especially noteworthy were Diana at the front desk and Piero the bar tender. Very nice experience and can't wait till next year when we'll return.

Room Tip: Go for the beach view rooms, they're a bit more expensive but worth it. During the off season...

Used Quinto Sole's facilities during a cruise stop in Costa Maya. Booked this at the pier with one of the booths as you exit the pier. Paid $15 per person for the beach chair, palapa and unlimited non-alcoholic drinks. It is an extra $10 if you want the beer and mixed drink package. I am sure you could haggle a bit to get a better price, but seemed reasonable considering how much other places during our cruise were charging for just a taxi to the beach.

While not exactly the best swimming beach, it did provide a nice stop to relax and get the feel for a beach town in Mexico. The waiters were attentive and super friendly. The mixed drinks were somewhat watered down, but the beer was good. The massage vendors on the beach were actually pretty good and were priced reasonably. Lots of vendors selling fruits, snacks, cigars, and jewelry. A simple 'no thank you' and you were not bothered by them the rest of the day.

The whole place had a happy vibe and it started with Diana at the front desk as soon as you walked in the lobby. There may be better beaches in Mahahual, but this was a nice stop for day at the beach.

The place is very clean, the staff is very friendly and he view from the room is to die for. We have stayed at other places in Costa Maya, Mahahual, Mexico and this rates right up there. It sits right on the beach, has a great restaurant and it is walking distance to just about everything.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good
