I stayed with Banyan Tree Mayakoba this past week. I was blown away by the level of service. I have never in my life stayed anywhere where the service was so perfect. I wish I knew the names of all the staff members who made for such an excellent stay. Seriously -- top notch!

I was completely blown away by the experience at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. I don't even know what I liked best...the incredible villa, the exceptional service, the wonderful food, the beautiful property and beach, the fun bikes we used all over the Mayakoba...everything was just so perfect, it made it so hard to leave! I think this wins for my favorite hotel I've ever stayed at, and I only hope I can come back again one day!

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. The Saffron restaurant has an average and overpriced Thai cuisine, yet placed in a very romantic location. Dining options at hotel are few and nothing worth mentioning, my experience with room service options was remarkably poor and below the overall ... Read more

The property, villas, food and staff were all amazing. I would highly recommend this resort. We went for our 10th anniversary and left with so many great memories. The only thing I wish they would change is to not allow kids.

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.
