HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

Our family visited for 6 nights in February to celebrate our fathers' 70th birthday, 9 of us in total and it was an amazing stay for all. The colleagues at the resort were wonderful, the guest rooms spacious and well appointed, and the resort itself was lovely and never felt overcrowded despite it being 100% occupied. Special thanks to Hugo...

I travel the world and stay in 5 star resorts about 20 days per month. I travel for business as well as personal trips with my wife and I've never experienced an all-around perfect resort for whatever you're looking for. This most recent trip in February marks the 5th time in the past 7 years I've stayed at the Fairmont....

Firstly, we took the "All Inclusive" package. This property is not set up to be an all inclusive. There are numerous charges to you BEYOND the "all-inclusive" rate (food delivery to the quiet pool is charged, coffee in the morning at the coffee shop is charged, daily resort fee is charged, room service is charged, and you must pay to...

The rooms were beautiful and spacious, and the grounds were spectacular. They designed the grounds in an eco-friendly way, which means that they kept the mangroves intact and most rooms and casitas are not by the ocean, but they have drivers ready to take you around the resort. The water and beach was much nicer than many of the resorts...

This is a 5 star resort. That being said, there were some issues hence the 4 star review. (I make the comments below based on having been to at least 10 all inclusive, 5 star resorts in Mexico. In other words, I am pretty picky and have a lot to compare to.) Pros: Absolutely beautiful resort and the food was...

Spent a week with my wife in a casita with a canal view. We opted for the appetite for luxury and it was well worth it even for us who don't drink alcohol.

Let me begin by saying that this was my second visit to The Mayakoba Fairmont property, and repeat business says more than words. The staff and amenities are top-notch, and our service was outstanding. Dinner at El Puerto was the highlight of the over-all excellent dining portion of our trip, with the duck confit tacos the jewel in the crown....

We have only been here 2 days...but what a 2 days it's been! The resort is so incredibly beautiful and unique. The pictures on the website do not do it justice!
