My husband and I had an amazing honeymoon at the Maya! The junior suite we stayed in was nice, comfortable, and spacious. We were in building 65 which was a great location and very close to everything especially the wave pool. We had access to the whole property except the grand and ate at restaurants all over the place. The pools were very clean and the big pool has a swim up pool bar which is very convenient. There is a foam party in the big pool on Tuesdays and I also believe on Thursdays which was super fun. They put foam into the pool and play music and dance. There is also a lazy river there, but it was a bit too lazy and barely moves. The food was spectacular! We ate at the buffets for breakfast, but for dinner we made reservations at the nice restaurants. Our favorite were the French restaurants. We went to EL museo once and L’Etoile twice. The first time we ate at L’Etoile they gave us the "romantic table" which was really nice. FYI: There is a sommelier (wine expert) that will come to your table at certain restaurants, but what he or she is offering costs extra and is not part of the all-inclusive. Some of the things he was offering us costed $80 USD so we politely declined. The one steakhouse was almost right on the beach and that was our favorite and also had the best waiter Esteban. He was on point! Every time my drink was empty he was right there to refill it. Beware of the "tour" it’s a timeshare presentation! Its not mandatory so you can decline

The properties are beautiful, the staff friendly and amazing, the pools and food wonderful! I had two minor issues : a 2 hour wait for room service one night and the vanity mirror did not function (would not turn on and kept falling over)-I made two requests for repair. However, the minor issues pale in comparison to the awesome amazing stay we had at Iberostar Paraiso Maya! Highly recommeded!

Very large beach property with great pools

The junior suites on the Maya side where nice and comfortable. The Maya and Lindo resorts share a pool, beach and restaurants. Overall, the pool was nice. They had many activities to pick from. The lazy river was a bit too lazy, but still fun. The beach was quant, but you do have to walk about 2 minutes to get there. The pools and beach do not touch. The food was okay, not great. The shows were good, especially the Mexixan folklore ballet. Overall the hotel was nice and the staff was lovely. However, when they tell you that you have a “resort credit” it is really discounts on extras and not a credit. You may have “$400” but really you can use it as follows, but a bottle of wine which costs more than $75, then a $25 credit or discount will be applied. You cannot, for example, use your credit to buy the entire bottle of wine. I found this disingenuous. Also, they will try to sell you in their timeshares, so beware.

Excellent service with great food! Restaurants were always accessible even if you made your reservations late. Beach location was fantastic. We did have some seaweed in the water, but unlike most resorts in playa del Carmen the beach had practically no rocks and great sand. Even though the resort was full, You still didn’t feel crowded. The entertainment was good with lots to do at pool. We will definitely be back!!!

Great Week at the Iberostar Maya

Pros: Pool, choice of restaurants, entertainment, kids club, Star Friends, room sizes,
Cons: Occasionally the grounds needed some cleaning up due to overzealous guests - one broken bottle (ONE during a full 7 days), limes and straws poolside
Location: 30 minutes or less from the airport, 20 minutes to Playa Del Carmen and Puerto Morelos. Beach was NOT rocky at all except near the Grand.
We stayed 7 nights at this resort in Mid June. We found the resort to be beautiful inside and out. The resort is made up of 5 resorts in one. We found the Maya to be a great fit. The Lindo's lobby might actually be nicer but the Maya is great. The pool is huge and set up well. We never had trouble finding chairs except for the first day when we arrived to the resort after 1:00 PM. If you are up to go to breakfast by 8:00 you won't have a hard time finding chairs at the pool. We did not go to the beach much due to heavy surf and some weeds so we stayed poolside. There are 3 bars in the pool and each one has it's own merits. Pool bar is a little rowdy during certain times of the day but nothing more than PG13. The other two bars made for nice diversions and generally provided very quick service. Pro Tip - Bring a Yeti or other insulated cup and they will fill those up for you instead of using their standard bar ware. The Star Friends (read - entertainment and activity directors) were awesome. Charlie, Rico, Alberto and the rest of them were great with all guests but especially our kids. Our kids loved the kids club and went there 3 days! They even had them do shows in the Lindo theater which was really fun. I could go on and on about how awesome all of them were.
