    Quiet, peaceful, the food was excellent. The bungalows were amazing the smell of thatched roof. One of the most beautiful places I have been to. The showers were beautiful. Beds were comphy. Staff were friendly helpful. The spa full body scrub is a must. Loved everything about mahekal beach resort. We will b back. Thanks for the memories

    The resort was remodeling and workers were everywhere. The resort as very accommodating and moved our room.

    We spent a week in this stilish hotel with our family. The children loved both the sea and the two swimming pools. The hotel is very nice and the staff was very helpfull also to organise the birthday of our daughter. A perfect hotel for family vacation!

    The hotel is not cheap but include half pension.

    The accommodations were very clean and comfortable. The beach was beautiful and so accessible. A very easy place to stay.

    A bit too disney beach resort for a single young lady, but on the other hand - one definitely gets what's promised with this sort of place. Maybe better for families and/or couples. Also, it seems that when I purchased through, I was signed up for a package that included breakfast and dinner, but was not aware that that was being factored into the cost. Sort of an irritating surprise. I am not sure if that was an additional cost or an automatic thing - but if not necessary, one should try to ask that that expense not be included. Also, Mahekal charged the total amount to my card at the time of booking, rather than what indicates - that the amount will be withdrawn at the time of check-out. Another irritating surprise. Other than the snafus though - I was quite content with the resort.

    location, individual huts, no TV,

    Incomplete info at check in, no room phones to call for luggage pickup, older pools (which are to be renovated)

    Friendly staff, superb cleaning staff (everyday we received new towels formed in different shapes like heart, temple,...)

    Very poor WIFI-connection (if you can consider this as being a minus)

    Great staff, food, location and mix of people. Felt very comfortable.

    Sidewalks are too narrow throughout the whole project at 2.5 Feet. My wife fell when she had to step aside to allow another guest to pass. Sidewalk had a 6 inch drop off. She split her knee cap and is in a 6 week recovery. Problem can be easily addressed by adding 6-10 inches to each side and done in a way that won't detract from the overall beauty of the resort. If this were in the U.S. they would have had many lawsuits by now. The owners are U.S. and we are considering our options.

    close walk to beach, close walk to 5th ave shops and restaurants Some of waitstaff were very kind and friendly

    Wrong room upon arrival,seems commonplace.Somewhat rude and indifferent staff. Our bathroom had rusty old fixtures,toilet smelled old and dirty, mattress and pillows were old and musty.Filthy common area bathrooms too. Never enough staff at front desk,never a concierge the whole time we were there.Not very helpful.Dinner Buffet was awful,we only went once and then didn't bother to go back.

    Fantastic location - right on the beach and easily walkable to Quinta Avenida, the main restaurant/shopping street. But it still has a private and secluded feel when you're on the property. And the on-site restaurants are great too, if you don't feel like leaving (and you might not!).

    I stared at this box for a few minutes, and the only thing I can think of is that the beach can be a little busy. But the hotel has its own chairs and palapas, and we never had a problem finding a spot.

    Great staff.. always friendly and accommodating! Our Palapa was directly on the beach…but we still had privacy and lots of space for the three of us.

    some construction noise, while I was having a massage in the outdoor spa tent.

    Location at beach was good

    Not a 4 star hotel, more a 3 star. Staff was tired. Very old hotel in urgent need of renovation. Bad rooms, no mirror, hairdryer, fridge, etc etc. The food was not tasty at all!

    We actually ended up leaving. The sulfer aroma on the beach which was a result of some sort of environmental phenomema, was awful. The rooms were comfortable, but tired. Members of the staff were accommodating in allowing us to leave, but for a price. Not the highlight of our trip.

    Most of the staff is nice. Good breakfast

    Rooms are small and nice some reform. There is A LOT of noise coming from nearby beach clubs. A not very pleasant smell is sometimes present.

    There were very loud construction works going on. It smelled very bad from the sea. I guess it was because it rained very heavily for some days and the sewage system may not be very good.

    The location is fantastic. Best on the Playa del Carmen. Wake up and go to sleep with the sound of the surf: in your own hammock on your own little patio, if you choose. The bungalows are a very good idea but are in need of renovation. The good news is, the whole place is being renovated and ready by the end of 2014. Go then. No Tv, no phones and occasional internet permit total relaxation. Complimentary waters every day. Few services but always with a smile. Book airport transportation with Mahekal. No hassle.

    Renovations are going on. Loud. Musty smell in all bungalows. Very minimal services but done with great smile. Shower heads not friendly to women. A/C a disaster. Non-threatening bugs all over. We shook our clothing before packing for the trip back. Several of the bugs came out!

    We loved staying in a palapa style room to get the feel of Mexico. The beach and facilities were beautiful.

    2 meals included- we recommend eating breakfast and lunch there (they'll even bring you your lunch and drink on the beach!), but eat dinner out in the town!
