"Awesome but be aware of noise issue"
Place is awesome with one exception that is out of their hands. North of this resort is a neighboring partying resort that has an outdoor nightclub that plays techno music until 300am on Saturday nights. Rooms that are on the north side of the property literally shake with thundering music making sleep even with the hotel provided earplugs impossible. Hotel needs to work with city and get the sound lowered after midnight. This would never be allowed in any other city or country. So, for travelers checking in, REFUSE to stay on the north side near the beach casitas if you are staying over a Saturday. You will not sleep.
"Beautiful hotel , but very noisy !!!!!"
We stayed at Mahekal for just 2 nights ! the location is amazing , the gardens are very nice , there are 3 beautiful swimming pools and food is quite good ! the big problem is the very loud music of the beach club Mamitas right next to the hotel !! they play very loud music all day and night and one can even feel the floor reverberate !!I To make things worst, I asked to change to a room on the other side of the hotel , and the attendant tryed hard to offer me one bungalow with sea view US 100 more expensive than the one I had reserved ! I refused , and then she changed us to a bungalow on tha last row of the resort , just next to the working area of the hotel !! and the hotel was less then 50pc full !! so we escaped the noise of the club , but had the noise of the hotel staff all night watering the plants , talking , mopping the gardens !!! it was a shame , it could have been a wonderful stay !!!!!
"Location location location"
Seriously do not stay anywhere else. Beautiful resort without the corporate feel. The palapas made us feel way more authentic even with an amazing air conditioning unit. Right on 5th! It rained during the majority of our trip and had a blast riding bike down 5th and stopping in bars to grab a drink. Best trip ever. I will definitely return!
"Organic and clean stay"
The original all straw palappas are great- The only problem is when the birds decide to make a nest in your roof- and the straw is shaken into your room and on your bed= all day long- and then all night long- which is BIZARRE. Aside from that the room is comfortable- light is low but shower and bathroom area is good- Two of us shared a double room and it was comfortable. The deck and hammocks are ideal and the beach front is very nice.
We went last week to Mahekal for a mom/daughter get away. We stayed in an ocean view cottage and it was ideal. The service was truly wonderful and the food was really good (esp. for places w/ MAP). It is not a sterile "compound" so there are locals on the beach but it is a safe and beautiful spot. We went snorkeling and explored underground caves/rivers, the town and spent lots of time on the beach and their various pools. Highly recommend!
