Getting there


Reviews for the Rosewood Mayakoba Resort are excellent, and it’s among the highest rated resorts in the Cancun/Maya Riviera region. Virtually every review is 5 stars out of 5, with most guests praising the large size of the overwater suites (as well as the other rooms) and the private plunge pools and their temperature control.


This resort does well at providing a paradise feeling for its guests, and the staff and service are extremely attentive based on their track record. A small number of guests mention that the spa or restaurants are more expensive than they expected, but for one of the top rated 5-star resorts in Mexico, it’s not surprising that they aren’t cheap.
