The Banyan Tree Mayakoba´s staff is one of the most attentive and efficient at any hotel. The Villas are magnificent with great spaces and plenty of amenities to enjoy the day, the room swimming pools are nice and you can enjoy total privacy.

Everything was great, our Cabin was espectacular, very secluded place, great for lovers. to many anemities, we couldn´t enjoy it all. You need at least 4-5 nights and days to explore and enjoy the sorroundings. The beach is great, you make it either by golf cart or biking. Biking was a very nice experience, like if you were in a rural town. We tried couple of restaurants and the main bar, it was pretty good. The pool inside the villa is just great. imagine what you can do in a private villa.

We were staying in Mayakoba rosewood and took the boat over to banyan tree for some variety. We were thoroughly disappointed. Our server was slow and there restaurant was empty so he certainly could have been more attentive. The food was not good at all and widely expensive for what we were served. We should have saved the time and gone somewhere else. The beach however looked beautiful and the grounds were well kept.
