Based on reviews discussing the distance between the lagoon and beach rooms - hoping to buy up to a beach suite from lagoon suite (DSU) when we go next month. Will report back with my findings.

Imagine that (harmless) bugs in a hot and humid climate....

Just booked a 5 night C&P stay in February, and DSU'd into a lagoon view suite. We visited GH Playa last spring, and really enjoyed that, but I had bronchitis and was pretty confined to the hotel. Hoping to actually get out and see some stuff this time.

Quick question: Does anyone know if the couch in the suite pulls out? That's not listed on the website, but they do say they can bring in a roll-away. We'll have a 6 and a 2 year old with us.

How did you use a DSU with a stay in April if the upgrades expire in Feb? They told me I need to call back after March 1st.

Sorry, meant February. The April trip is Aruba.

Sorry for going OT, but did you book Aruba yet? Sounds like it's to be tougher this yr to upgrade - DSU now confirms into former Cayenne suite, only 3 of those, and further from club. Last year was the Family Suite which worked out great for us. Details here.

Keep us posted on Mayakoba pls - thinking of booking a trip there soon as availability and rates look to be reasonable.

Haven't booked yet; we're considering both the Hyatt and the Renaissance (I also have Platinum status with Marriott).

Mayakoba will be interesting; It looks like all the suites (except the presidential suite) are only 1 king, no pull-out. We have a 6 and 2 year old that will be with us. According to Tahsir's review, it looks like the couch is big enough to sleep on, but my wife is not convinced that will be ideal for the kids for 5 nights. Otherwise, I guess we are bringing in a roll-away (or maybe 2?)...

I feel like pretty much every suite I've ever been in had a pull out couch.

Another question for those who have been: Tahsir's review says you can move around within Mayakoba and see the other hotels / dine at their restaurants. For those who have been (or once you go in the coming days / weeks), would you recommend any specific hotels / restaurants. I understand there are only three: Rosewood, Banyan Tree, and Fairmont. I wonder if you ate lunch there is you could also swim in their pools?

I like the idea of getting some variety out of the trip. Considering booking one night at one of the other hotels just to try it, but the wife is against it for the hassle of unpacking / repacking.

Having been to dozens of similar properties around the world in a "hot and humid climate", at last not used to seeing them come inside the room which means there may be an opening through the walls or ducts where they came in through. This is at least I wouldn't expect at Andaz or Park Hyatt caliber properties.

On another note, anyone know if theres any real difference between "Beach" and "Ocean Front" suite? Maybe one is on ground level while other is on higher level?

How was it? Booked for February with DSUs confirmed. Curious about the rooms, upgrade potential, the pools/beach, and how easy it is to get to/from downtown PDC.

Can someone who has stayed here share what the restaurant options are like both at the resort and around the rest of Mayakoba? Is it only 'fine dining' and the like or is there a good mix? What should one expect to spend per day on food per person?

Also, for someone without Diamond, what are the breakfast options?

I requested menus from the hotel just yesterday. Will add to this thread when (if) I receive them.

Based on reviews it certainly looks like there are a number of casual dining options - which is certainly to be expected at a beach property.

I just received the menus for the restaurants. Dinner menus are below. I also received the breakfast, lunch, and dessert menus if anyone is interested but figured this would be a good reference point. Prices are very reasonable with the current exchange rate.


Amate



Milagro



Olla Ceviche



Olla Taco

Thanks for the menus Gunner14!

I would be interested in seeing the breakfast, lunch, and dessert ones if you had a moment to upload them.
