We've stayed at several five star resorts in the Caribbean and around the world and the Banyan Tree Mayakoba is darn close to perfect. Beautiful setting, magnificent suites, superb hospitality, great food at a not outrageous price. What more could one ask for? This is one spot we can recommend with confidence. We'll be back!

I have just spent 4 days at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba, a beautifully designed hotel with stunning beach in the Mayakoba park. The staff are among the friendliest and most attentive that I have met anywhere in the world, going out of their way to ensure that we could have the best holiday possible.

I have stayed here six times from their first inaugural opening year and this hotel has never disappointed. I’ve been a fan of the Banyan Tree properties from the east for many years and was very excited that they were opening in this hemisphere. The spa is absolutely fabulous.

The Bayan tree in playa del carmen is extraordinary...., the only additional comment to this great hotel is that if you have little children, the privacy of your villa is not so relevant. I have been to spa massages in asia and the spa is probably one the best, if not the best you will know !!!

Wonderful Resort at Mayakoba Mexico. Personally think its the finest resort of them all. The ratio of guests to staff insures that no wish goes unfulfilled. Beaches are an 8 out of 10 (With Elbow Beach Bermuda being 10/10) Villas are spacious and luxurious. Great vacation!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a site of almost mythical beauty. It flawlessly blends elegance and nature, taking the Caribbean lifestyle to an unprecedented new height. A breathtaking getaway for relaxation, rejuvenation, romance and world-class dining, it is also the region's most sustainable five-star resort. With its revitalized culinary concepts, Thai-inspired therapies at the Banyan Tree Spa, 14 event-venues and the Greg Norman signature 18- hole El Camaleon golf course, home to the PGA Tour Mayakoba Classic, the resort raises the bar for premium leisure options and event planning. Perfect for private getaways, family trips and group events, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers 118 villas, ranging from romantic Bliss and Serenity Pool Villas to Family Residences and Ocean Front Villas. All include outdoor areas with private pools and terraces. Inspired by the interior courtyards of houses in the Far East, each villa is discreetly built to blend with the landscape, integrating the interiors and their idyllic surroundings. East meets West in every subtle detail, from the fragrance of flowers encircling your villa, to the softness of a kimono, fine linens and essential oils on your skin. Here, even world-weary guests discover the eloquence of tranquility. ... more   less
