"The New Mahekal"
Get ready for a special treat!!! My husband and I are Shangri-la, Mahekal junkies....we love this resort as we love our own home..even MORE!! Mahkeal has been our oasis for many, many years. It is the place we come to for relaxation, enjoyment and that little silce of paradise that keeps us returning year after year after year!! With that being said, we were truly sad and worried about the renovations to our paradise. We did NOT want the change. So, with heavy hearts and anticipation, we returned to the Mahekal (Las Palapas next door) to see what changes have been made to our perfect silce of paradise..... To all of you who love and cherish the Shangri-la / Mahekal resort: STOP THE WORRY, BOOK THE MAHEKAL.... IT IS WONDERFUL~BEAUTIFUL~FABULOUS~it still has its wonderful, quaint charm with a fresh new feel to the accomodations. Mahekal still boasts the little winding pathways full of lush wonderful gardens and trees, mushroom lights along the pathways, clothes lines for your beach towels, hammoks swinging in the ocean breeze on your terrace the sound of the crashing waves and birds singing in the trees and the most important part to us....all the same wonderful family of staff....all the beautiful, friendly and familiar faces you have come to know and love :) I never thought I would say this but it is the Mahekal...only better!!! We are happy to say we came home with pure excitement and anticipation for our return to the Mahekal in May 2015...... So, for all you Mahekal family and friends....just book it, your gonna love it!! :)) Adios Mahekal Family and Friends Hosta Pronto Dominic and Christine Dionisi XOXO
"Disappointing for a honeymoon experience"
We had booked this property based on the website and were unfortunately disappointed when we arrived. For honeymooners we were placed in a room adjacent to the kitchen so we were woken for two mornings in a row at 5:30am. Not ideal. The pool was directly in front of us too so we had screaming children echoing through our room at all times of the day. We did ask to be moved and they graciously upgraded us to another room. However the beach wasn't very pleasant and the food wasn't great so we chose to cut our trip short and head back down to Tulum, which we loved. The manager at Mahekal did try to accommodate us but it was down to us that we felt we wanted a more special experience for our honeymoon.
"The perfect Easter break"
This is a small scale hotel with a superb beachfront location, with little cabanas right at the beach and two modest pools. Arts and craft activities, and a great play room with ping pong and pool billiard, where our kids met plenty of other kids to play with. Hotel includes breakfast and either lunch or dinner. Breakfast has a good selection, with a variety of Mexican egg dishes made to order. Some Mexican music and entertainment at dinner. Located in Northern part of town, within easy walking distance of main shopping street in Playa del Carmen. We went sailing and snorkeling, and plenty of interesting tours available to Tulum, Chitzen Itza and other sites. The room was not big, but comfortable, with a nice terrace and hammocks. No tv in room and no wifi, which is all part of the philosophy, allowing for rest and a break. Great place for families.
"Amazing first stay in Mexico."
Our rooms were right on the beach, friendly Manuel could deliver drinks and food all day long. All staff were friendly, and happy to be there. Food was great - although we would have liked to have seen some authentic mexican in there every night. Live music in the bar was awesome - my younger brother loved the pool tables/ping pong - and my grandmother loved sitting on the beach or by the pool. Really does have something for everyone.
My partner and I stayed here in November last year for our wedding, and loved it! They had organised a beautiful flower decoration on the bed on our arrival ant the staff went above and beyond to make sure everything ran smoothly on the day. Our room was a penthouse overlooking the ocean and pool area, with a sunbed and hammock on the balcony. The food was delicious and there was never any wait for a table. Located right on the beach, it was a fantastic location and only a 10 minute walk into town so it was quiet at night. Thank you Mahekal for an amazing stay!
