FABULOUS time at Maya Chan. While the drive to the resort was a little bumpy (we had been warned) once we got to the resort the service, food, drink, the entire experience was fantastic. Unlimited alcohol - the staff even brought me margaritas while I was in the float in the water! Loved our experience at Maya Chan and we will definitely be back. Read Less

We did the Barefoot Beach / Tipsy Turtle all inclusive day at the beach and it was fantastic. Jesus was on point for the drinks and food, and making sure everyone was happy and had what they needed. The beach was soft, the malecon was interesting, and the walking beach vendors were frequent but friendly. No gracias was always accepted, no reason to stress at them. Would definitely go again.

The reviews were over the top awesome!!! 30 minute cab ride on roads that shook your innerds to death. THe area was worn out. wooden chairs were rotted, ocean floor was a mine feild of coral and rocks. My friend cut her foot badly, When we arrived we were graciously greeted,swarmed by great service...Then its like the staff all but disappeared, The floaty chairs were cool, but we were assured that all we had to do is wave your arm and drinks would happily be delivered by the staff, NOPE, I nearly waved my arm off.....no drinks, When you did get them they were STRONG,,,be careful ! The food was ataco bar...it was okay. Read Less

Took a cab (leave the cruise port and shuttle area behind to find the taxi area) to Krazy Lobster in Mahahual - $2 per person, each way. Perhaps a 10 minute ride. Krazy Lobster offered free beach chairs, tables, kayak use, WiFi, and (slightly sketchy) showers/bathrooms to patrons. The food was decent and reasonably priced. Vendors were pervasive, but not pushy. We walked up and down the "promenade" a bit to shop for souvenirs. Easy, inexpensive shore excursion / beach break. Read Less
