"AMAZING Stay at Mahekal"
We stayed for 7 nights in garden room a short walk to the beach. I like that its not a hotel building as this is a sprawling villa. The beach is fabulous, the servers amazing specially Manuel who is always ready to offer drinks at the beach, Rogelio ever friendly and welcoming at Las Olas, Marcos, Monserrat, Gabriel who helped us with our luggage . The food is great. They always change the theme every day/Night. Breakfast buffet is at Las Olas and I love the green juice and omelette which is made to cook. This is a short walk to 5th Ave by about 2 minutes. We really loved the beach which is literally less than a minute walk from where we stayed. Next time we will get the beach front /view. They have hammocks ready be set up by the veranda. There are faucets to wash your feet before you step in your room. 3 pools one being infinity by the restaurant close to the beach even Fuego restaurant is by the beach front.The only negative is since this is a"native setting" with palm trees and coconuts are the mosquitoes. We really need to constantly apply repellants both spray and lotion. The ambience is lovely. We were also able to use the gym, the ping pong table and pool. Lots of books to borrow to read in case you forgot to bring yours. They arranged for our jet ski ride. The inside of the room is combination of native - the roof, the decor, I liked the bathroom, the sink and faucets, the separate toilet. The air-conditioning is good with a big ceiling fan to increase air circulation.I Loved the reading lamps!!chic, modern, yet unobtrusive...the service in changing the bedsheets is great.. Only thing is the house lizard and occasional noise because of construction at the back I guess because we were at the back end of the resort. This place is great for couples, families,seniors. Maybe if there is nightly or Friday night, Saturday night band performance , otherwise you need to walk to Quinta Avenida -5th Ave which is 2 minutes walk .. there are restaurants, bars, the shopping mall which has Forever 21, American Eagle, starbucks, etc is only 15 minutes walk.. Great Location. Will recommend to a Friend, NO, I will keep this a secret....
"Great stay with very friendly staff"
Our stay here was awesome. This place is paradise if you search for a calm place to enjoy the beach and to relax. The food was ok and the room is great! I would definitely recommend to stay at this place!
"Nice but just nice"
Amazing location. On the best part of the beach. Facilities are good and clean. Restaurants could do with an upgrade on menu and service. Way to many male waiters. Don't think I say any female in any restaurant. It's a costly place and with all the extras it might just kill part of the joy. And Yes they are not the only resort on the beach so noise r heard from the other party places nxt door. Would I return' Not think so ....
Just returned with a group of 10. We travel to Cancun often and stay at different resorts. Can't say enough about the staff at Mahekal, they are wonderful, friendly and very helpful. Months in advance I had emailed and called the resort requesting all our rooms be together. I had planned the trip and hoped to have a great room. Turns out we were all spread out all over the place, my room being the furthest from everyone and overlooking the street/public access beach. Not happy, I requested a different room and moved from a palapa room to a regular first floor room but had a great beach view and near my friends. I loved the rustic charm and not having a TV or ice machine was not a problem. We asked for a fridge so we could keep beverages cold. There is an OXXO store right next door to buy drinks, ice, etc.. We ate all of our breakfasts, lunches and some dinners there. the Fuego Resturant was great and much cooler with an ocean breeze. All the buffets are the exact food. Even if they call it Mediterranean or Italian night the food is the same. Nice clean beach, clear water and proximity to 5th avenue can't be beat!
This resort is great, and it is the staff that make it so great. Two staff, Rogelio and Jared, have gone out of their way, every single day of our trip, to greet us, to welcome us at every meal. They have big smiles and are just great people! The staff overall are very helpful and friendly.
