We’re getting close to decent weather in the Northeast, but my husband had a couple of vacation days to work with, and we needed a getaway. Puerto Vallarta had been our go-to for decades, but when you have a couple of days, Cancun is much more convenient.
We’d played at the El Camaleon golf course at Mayakoba two decades back, and I had been itching to return and stay at one of the Mayakoba possessions. As an indication of just how much we appreciated it, we’re already talking about coming back next year.
The resort is so beautiful, and I’d recommend getting a casita on the water, even though ask for one that’s not appropriate on the path, as that gets much traffic. Of course, if it’s in your budget, select one on the beach. We opted for the breakfast package, but maybe not the comprehensive, as we desired to stop by the other properties for dinner. That was a fantastic choice for us, even though for a household it might be simpler to stay put.
The Willowstream spa is lovely. I wish I had allowed over an hour to enjoy the offerings there before my remedy. Shout out to Alejandro for a smooth check in and check out, though everyone was agreeable, which we typically find in Mexico. He also talked to us about some playa del carmen snorkeling tours for my family.
We were planning to ding the property a bit for support, as I expected it to be a bit more spot-on than it was, but we had the same experience in the golf course, Andaz and Banyan Tree if we saw these areas, so it is not only Fairmont. In general, a great escape.
The grounds are amazing, with all the hotel distribute over a large, natural location. Getting around is simple: we never waited more than a few moments for one of the carts to come by.
Nice place. Food and drink is first class, a great variety of options. We particularly enjoyed La Laguna, the Mexican restaurant that offered many traditional dishes all of which were delicious. Service throughout was also superb.
We’re looking forward to a return visit.
