"Great place to unwind"
Great hotel and amenities for the price. Excellent location on the beach and short walk to 5th ave. We were greeted immediately by David who took our luggage and made sure our car got parked on the crowded street (only crowded on weekends.) We were checked in quickly and surprised with a room closer to the beach than reserved. All rooms are very close to the beach, just some are in more of a jungle setting in the back. Room was clean and air conditioned. We were in the bottom room and could here those above us though. Food was great- we did the semi inclusive plan with two meals a day. The waitstaff was amazing and eager to please- Angel and Raul were phenomenal. Beach is wonderful with plenty of lounge chairs. They will serve food and drinks to you on the beach as well. There was also a security guard on the beach at all times. We had a very peaceful vacation- this place is for rest and relaxation-not a party hotel. We definitely recommend this hotel!
Beautiful resort...magnificent service. Manuel and Rogelio excellent staff. I highly recommend it. Can't wait to go again. Lots to do walking distance to 5th avenue with lots of restaurants and stores. We did the half board plan which I recommend the breakfast and lunch , dinner we went couple of times to 5th Ave. since it was great to do at night. First time in Mexico thanks to the Mahekal I'm going to have the best memories of a lifetime.
"Fantastic holiday resort"
We stayed in the fantastic resort in July. We had a ocean view room, which was really ocean view cottage. Everything about this place was great. The room, the staff, the food and the beach. In our opinion, this was the best resort we had ever been. We say this after visiting over 50 We enjoyed the beach even after mid night as there was security.
"Completely restored and full of positive energy."
The resort is beautiful, well maintained, and such a paradise... However, the people employed at the resort should be recognized for making our trip an unforgettable experience. Two gentleman in particular, Angel and Rogelio are two that provided such an experience for Myself, wife, 17 year old daughter, and 16 year old son. This was our first time out of the country and had been told to be careful about the local population conning and manipulating for money and tips. This not the feel on the resort. We would start our day at 7:00 am and head to breakfast to be greeted by a variety of employees and met Angel and Rogelio that first day. The first interaction was typical as they were very polite and courteous. We would spend our day at the beach, snorkeling, exploring, and coming back to the resort for lunch and dinner. The resort has three restaurants on site that served brilliant fresh fruit, food, and drinks. The coconut ice cream was ridiculously good. Occasionally we would have dinner later at one of these spots and would regularly see Angel and Rogelio at the varying restaurants working anytime between the 7:00 am - closing around 10:00 am. As we would arrive for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Angel and Rogelio would make it a point to come and say hello to my family. Many times they had no chance of getting tipped, just simply to great my family. I spent some time talking with Angel and Rogelio and learned they're cousins and lived in a small village near Chichen Itza. I learned that the Mayan people are a hard working and proud people. I learned that the Yuchatan Peninsula is rich in history, food, and culture. These two men, Angel and Rogelio provided such a history lesson, positive experience, and a profound sense of pride in the work they do. Angel and Rogelio have the respect of me and my family. My family and I went to the Yuchatan for the typical tropical/beach experience, but left with so much more that a nice resort experience and a sunburn. We would definitely go back for the experience and the people. Thank yous so much Angel and Rogelio for the time, effort, and experience you put into making our trip grand. - The Perez-Romero Familia.
"Wanna go back!"
This was our first time at Mahekal and we fell in love with it. We arrived to a nice surprise of an ice bucket with champagne for our anniversary. Totally unexpected but appreciated. The grounds were nicely pruned, the staff was very friendly but professional, and the room we had (#15) was roomie for me, my husband, and 21-year-old daughter. We had a little trouble with the toilet since it had a small leak and we did encounter a little friendly cockroach but nothing out of the ordinary considering the style of hotel with palm tree roofs. We loved the hammocks on our patio and the ocean view was breath-taking. We liked that our room was not directly ON the beach due to more foot-traffic but rather a little ways in and still having a beach view. We loved the relaxed feeling of the hotel and its palapas. Our room was near the Olas Restaurant which had the best buffet breakfasts and lunches with the option of ordering off the menu. The margaritas were not very good but sometimes you get low quality drinks with all-inclusive hotels. The dinners at the Cocina Restaurant were just ok so we tried a few restaurants at the nearby Quinta (5th) avenida which was fun to walk with locals and vacationers and a ton of shopping. We especially liked the local feel on the Mahekal beach but without the hassle of local vendors. We liked having the option of sitting on the beach or staying at the hotel pools. The pools were nice and fairly clean with friendly guests that were not snobby. The only issue we had was with a nearby "day club" that played loud music all day and almost all night to no end on a couple days. The staff said it was a newly opened beach club catering to younger partiers. I don't mind thumping music but not all day and all night long. We decided to overlook this hotel deficiency with the special treatment we received when I had a moped accident and broke my ankle and arm. The hotel staff was kind enough to immediately move us down to a 1st floor room (since we originally had a 2nd floor room that I could not walk up to) and were very accommodating with my situation and our need to leave one day earlier than anticipated. Overall, it was a great stay and we plan to go back to finish the vacation that we had to cut short due to my accident. Good job Mahekal!!!
