"Perfect in Playa"
This was my third visit to the Las Palapas/Mahekal properties--my first on the Mahekal side. First--if you are looking for a Mexican experience with both solitude and easy access to the chaos that is shopping/eating/partying in Playa then this is it. I love this end of town--it's slightly newer and filled with great shops and restaurants. You can still go out to the clubs but the bass isn't pumping all night long. The hotel property is beautifully situated on the water--whether you are in a garden or an ocean you are never far from the beach, pool or a beautiful tropical garden. The property is clean and safe and the staff is friendly and welcoming. They always greet you and make sure you are having a good time. The included meals were more than enough--I recommend ordering one of the egg dishes off the breakfast menu and the green juice is a must to start your day. We opted to have lunch instead of dinner and the menu included all of the Mexican basics plus burgers, sandwiches and salads.
"Tied for best resort ever"
First trip back since it had changed hands so we were a little skeptical.When we had visited before it was Shangri-la and absolutely beautiful. We were pleasantly surprised the moment we signed in. The staff was extremely courteous and the grounds were even better than before. We have visited many resorts (25 trips)in the Riviera Maya area and Mahekal was THE most beautiful. I could go on for days praising this place but you would be better served experiencing it yourself.
"A wonderful vacation!"
We recently spent a week at Mahekal Beach and had a wonderful vacation. The resort is situated at a beautiful section of the beach area. The pools are very nice. The fresh seafood selection is very good. The rooms are clean and spacious. The most exceptional part of our stay was by far the service we received. Everyone at the resort is friendly and helpful. A special thank you to Carlos, Manuel Maas, Angel, and also Lily and Josolito in Fuego Restaurant!
"Really nice beach resort"
I stayed for 8 days with my girlfriend. Start of with the bad stuff because it's almost all good. The concept of half board where you get breakfast and dinner but still have to sign a check every single meal. This made us think it was only for tips to the staff. And because we did not give any the first days we did feel like the staff did not help us the rest of the days. If a hotel has breakfast included pay the staff enough so it dose not live of tips. The hotel is perfectly situated by the beach. It's gardens and landscaping is very nice. There's pool table, pingpong table, books, pot making, spa, lounge areas and more around all in good shape! We hit the gym a couple of times and we where almost always alone and it was brand new equipment! The pool areas are great with waiters (that deserve and got tips!) that bring you drinks and snacks. They are very nice and remembers what you had yesterday and your name. Alberto was there most of our time and helped us allot! It was a bit windy so we didn't try the beach to much but it was good. In both pool and beach there was allot of sun beds and towel service. We only did breakfast and lunch and both are good taste and diversity. But 8 days is probably maximum before you start eat the same thing again. The rooms are spaces and modern. With both ac and a fan. The shower did not have a good pressure but there was always hot water.!) the patio outside the rooms are nice with a hammock. The wifi works everywhere and the speed is totally acceptable. The front desk is really helpful and nice. They let us stay till one on checkout so we could get as many sun hours in before we left. It's a short walk up to the main shopping street. The shopping is good with everything H&M, Victoria Secrets, Forever 21 and souvenirs. Would definitely recommend the hotel!
"What a Terrific Place - Volume 2!"
We just finished our second stay at this terrific beach (and I mean beach) resort. The second phase of a classic renovation is now complete and it is wonderful. A huge new pool and fabulous restaurant, "Fuego" and Spa have been added and the Los Olas infinity pool and hot tub are still a real hit. But a real highlight is the staff, they are extremely friendly and attentive and will make every effort to see that your needs are met. The food and drinks are wonderful and enjoyed by the ocean at 2 different venues. All in all we could not have asked for more! Will be back next year for sure!!
