“It's the people!”
5 of 5 starsReviewed March 15, 2014
At almost the last minute, we decided to book a spring break at the Mayan Ranch. Timing is everything and we secured the last room due to a cancellation a few minutes prior. You will be well fed and entertained…but the beauty of this ranch comes from the intangibles. In the lobby, you can read the rewards, look at the family tree and listen to the staff as they speak proudly of their ranch. It s almost as though you are participating in the Hicks family reunion. A special call out to Judy and Tracey - their warmth and welcoming nature made us feel as though we were part of a reunion. We also loved the fact that this place is so laid back…Unlike other resorts where you hear "what room number" incredibly frequently, you simply help yourself to the snacks, drinks, coffee, beer…You pay the price and then don't take your wallet out again. We all loved the Mayan ranch and will be back again. We also awoke to a huge peacock on our back deck. Just part of the charm…Also, heads up about the gravy for your biscuits at breakfast - spicy/peppery/100% delicious! Fine job on experience and execution Hicks family!
