Best Things Nearby:
Nothing is really very close. The nightlife is in Acapulco, but we were able to negotiate cab rides for $20, which is not a bad rate, and we went into town every night. So, even though nothing is that close, you can get there cheap enough!
Best Things About the Resort:
The number one best thing about the Mayan Palace is their wonderful pool. The temperature of the water was kept just right. It was huge, there was always a place to find a lounge chair, and you could find shade or sun.
The pool is HUGE. There is no need to worry about bumping into bodies. We liked to walk from one end of the pool to the other when we were hot.
The resort itself is immaculate; someone is always cleaning something. We were very pleased. Because it’s in a tropical location, there is a slight musty smell to the rooms, but it didn't bother me. The rooms are a nice size, with a main living area and a bedroom with a private bath. We had an adjoining junior suite with its own sitting area and private bath. It was more than enough room for us and the other couple we traveled with.
The staff is extremely helpful and friendly. I did have to go head to head with someone at the front desk over a two telephone calls that I attempted to make, but the phone didn't work, so I immediately hung up and went to a phone that did work. They weren't going to remove the calls. However, after telling them I would dispute the entire bill with American Express, they realized that was not the route they wanted to take and credited the $7.
The Mayan Palace is perfect for singles, couples, and families. There is so much to do at the resort for kids. We are going to take our three children along the next time we go. I know they would love it.
The waves are strong; I don't recommend going out too deep. But walking on the shore is wonderful, and you can walk either direction for a long time. We found several sand dollars and really pretty shells. The ocean is warm and clear.
