The Palapa was fantastic with a Swing, Hammock, Couch and a couple of lounge chairs. The service from beginning to end was exceptional. The drinks were plentiful and the BBQ was just delish. The staff was on the money with the incredible service. Plenty of water activities are included. We certainly would go back

We just visited Maya Chan on May 6th 2014 on our cruise ship Navigator of the Seas. Absolutely the best excursion ever !! The staff, the food, the location all fantastic. When we arrived we were a party of five with three children ages, 14, 11, & 6. They had a beautiful spot reserved for us with a shaded palapa, chairs, hammock, and even a beach bed with pillows! Even for my youngest son they had beach toys he loved it !! Reserve with them you will not be disappointed. Thanks again Maya Chan

Maya Chan will always be our place to go when we stop in Costa Maya! I can't imagine anyone not giving this place an excellent review! We loved it and didn't want to leave to go back to the cruise ship. Exceptional service, fun staff, amazing food, and great beach... all with unlimited drinks! Owner, Mark, arranged scuba diving for our older boys (16+) and our younger boys (13+) loved the kayaks and snorkel gear. We loved the private cabana with lounge chairs, outdoor bed, and hammock too. We were welcomed with the best chips and salsa & guacamole we've ever had! We had an awesome day and can't recommend Maya Chan highly enough!

Most notably, Maya Chan has exceptional customer service. Maya Chan is a great beach club/resort with unlimited drinks (alcoholic and non) and a superb mexican fajitas lunch. This is a great activity for people of all ages. Each group of guests gets their own private cabana with lounge chairs. The staff there are on their game and always asking if you need drinks or anything. It is great if you just want to relax and do nothing. However, there are also free activities - including kayaks and a mini snorkeling trip. There are also fins and snorkels available for your use if you want to go alone. As you can see in the pictures, they are chair/rafts that you can take into the ocean and lounge and drink. The ride is only 15 minutes from the cruise port, which is nice because the road is kinda bumpy. Overall, great day and I highly recommend for groups of all sizes and ages.

A group of 6 of us spent a day here during our cruise last week. It was a first visit for 4 of us and a repeat visit for 2 in our group. We had a great Palapa with a hammock and swing along with a bed and Adirondack chairs. The guacamole and pico that they deliver as soon as you arrive was terrific.

They have everything you would want or need from kayaks, snorkel equipment and floating loungers. 2 in our party had massages and said they were terrific. A hint to future visitors is book your massages early. The day we were there they were really busy. There were 2 ladies when we got there and by the time we left they had 4 ladies giving massages. Not sure if they called in backup due to the demand or if this is normal.

The food smells great while they are cooking it and tastes even better than it smells. Everything was great but my husband had to go back for more of the pork.

The staff is really great and constantly checking on you and bringing whatever you might want or need. We even enjoyed the couple of dogs that hung out in our Palapa a bit during the day. If we are at this port in the future we will make sure we book this early. It sounds like they sell out regularly and we talked to a few people on the ship who wanted to go but they were out of room.
