Banyan Tree Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, Mexico

In the Mexican Caribbean exists a luxe sanctuary called Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This other worldly paradise harmoniously blends superb luxury with its lush natural surroundings, all on the Riviera Maya coast. The Mayakoba development area provides a sense of seclusion and quiet respite along with what is normally considered on of the world's most popular stretches of shore. This, combined with the tradition and reputation of Banyan Tree and its Eastern-inspired elegance, makes for an unparalleled retreat. Accommodations are set in private pool villas, each remarkably decorated with handcrafted Mayan furnishings, and outfitted with ultra modern amenities, giving you the best of both worlds. The freestanding villas are ultra spacious in layout, and boast individual landscaped gardens, private outdoor terraces, floor-to-ceiling windows, outdoor bathtubs, and sparkling private infinity pools. Stay well-connected with iPod docks, flat-panel televisions, wireless Internet access, and direct dial phones - although you may just find yourself enjoying the unadulterated bliss.

As if your accommodations were not already enough to indulge your every sense, Banyan Tree Spa Mayakoba is at the ready to pamper you even further with award-winning treatments and spiritual renewal. Experience The Rainforest, a complete hydrothermal ritual, opt for a Thai Herbal Detox, or choose a classic Royal Banyan Massage. No matter what your preference may be, Banyan Spa Mayakoba exceeds expectations with its incredible offerings and professionally trained staff. Contemporary dining is another highlight of the resort, and Banyan Tree Mayakoba is home to three signature restaurants, as well as numerous bars and alternative dining venues. Try a drifting dinner with Ixchel, a floating meal served right on the lagoon waters, or stop by Sands for a poolside snack and tropical cocktail. Saffron showcases traditional Thai cuisine for a flavor of the orient, and Tamarind is Mediterranean-inspired with a modern yet rustic dining room. When it comes to local activities, you are in a prime spot for nearly everything. On-site recreation options include golfing, snorkeling, canoeing, eco tours, yoga, tennis, and swimming in the resort's pair of freeform pools - and nearby there is access to archaeological sites, sandy beaches, and jungle trekking. Discover the hidden world of Mexico's Riviera Maya and make Banyan Tree Mayakoba your next stop in pursuing the extraordinary.

Banyan Tree Mayakoba met and exceeded all our expectations! From the very beginning booking online to our return trip to the airport we could't have been more pleased. The service was excellent! Each person you interact with has a pleasant disposition and wants to fulfill your requests quickly. I highly recommend the car service suggested by Banyan Tree. It was a little costly but totally worth the money! The villa was very clean and well maintained when maid service was requested. There were no bugs inside the villa which is surprising considering you are in a jungle area. I did not see one spider! On the outside, a few ants around the pool were easily taken care of with the bug spray provided in the villa. I would highly suggest you bring your own body insect spray. The horseflies were terrible. Not the mosquitoes as I would have thought. The villa itself is a wonderful retreat! You could potential never leave during your entire visit. The pool was much larger than I would have expected. On one occasion it had many leaves floating in the water. A quick phone call and the pool boy had them removed in no time. The additional building in the villa was a nice option too for eating and just relaxing without being in the bedroom. Between both buildings there was plenty of space for two people. I would recommend you bring along a cheap pool float. It was too hot to sit on the lounge chairs but floating in the pool would have been the cherry on top. The food was the best we have ever had at a resort! And each meal got better than the one before. Truly a place for foodies. Service was a little slow but why rush it when you are on vacation? The beach was beautiful but a little further away than I would have liked. It is not what I would consider walking distance, especially in the heat. Each villa comes with bicycles making the ride to the beach way better. If you don't feel like biking you can request a golf cart/buggie ride. They are prompt in picking you up at your villa and taking you anywhere you would like to go. We were here to celebrate a milestone birthday and wedding anniversary. The entire staff was aware and made a point to congratulate us. One evening we were supplied with a bottle of wine and chocolates. At meals we were offered champagne and desserts. One evening a bath was prepared with rose petals and candles literally everywhere! It was magical! All worth the price tag!

This was our second visit to the Mayakoba area, we had previously stayed at the Fairmont and this time we were interested in the 3 bedroom villas as we went with extended family. The resort was wonderful. The villas were very spacious and comfortable. The small pool on the roof top was great for a late night or early morning dip with lovely views of the spectacular golf course. The only comment I would make on the villas is that there are a lot of stairs, so if you are travelling with elderly or folks that have mobility issues, it may not be the ideal room choice. The service at this resort is some of the best we have experienced in the world. Everyone was very helpful and the staff were always friendly and kind. Each villa was allocated bicycles so that you were free to use them to travel around the resort. There were always golf carts around to pick you up if you didn't fancy walking or biking. The breakfast buffet was extensive and sumptuous, able to satisfy every palette and dietary concern. We ate at the Sands beach restaurant which had a good variety of small, snacky items that your might want for lunch at the beach. The Saffron Thai restaurant was also a good choice, great for large parties who are willing to share dishes. The only disappointment was the Cello restaurant, the food was mediocre at best and the prices were totally ridiculous. More than you would expect to pay in most of the best establishments anywhere. All in all a magical place, definitely a vacation to remember!

This was my first time at Banyan Tree Mayakoba and I was very pleased through out my stay. The hotel is beautiful very relaxing, the villas are gorgeous very spacious, comfortable bed, nice bathroom and you'll have your own private pool, the 'hamaca' is a nice touch. Breakfast is very good, lot of options at the buffet, fresh fruits, cold cuts, chilaquiles, quesadillas, atole, pastries, omelets, and heavier dishes if you are looking for something more like Brunch, they even have mimosas. Both pools are very nice, one is quieter than the other, the one by the beach gets a bit crowded and its a bit small in my opinion. The other pool is bigger and quiet, the reflections bar has very good drinks and the staff is very friendly. Overall I had a wonderful stay at Banyan Tree, I will be back!

This has been the very best vacation trip in a long time and I am glad I did share this resort with my children coming in from Germany! We did stay in villa 112 with private pool and outdoor bathtub. From the Senior Management to the Bellboy this resort stands out in all areas and at all levels of delivering services beyond expectations. The Asian focused welcome Ceremony, the eye for details and the touch of the human spirit that just moves you up, no words that could render this kind of service and justification ! Your bikes waiting at the door of your villa, the room perfectly set up, bathroom amenities simply outstanding and the guest room itself leaves you speechless ! I have had the pleasure staying in quite a number of top of the line resorts, this one is the very best ! If you wish to experience the perfect Breakfast Buffet, this is the place to be, if you love Thai Food there is no better place, if you wish to forget the rest of the world, here you can manage such wishes to come true! The Resort has a Spa that does not leave and desires open, the very best of Asian Spa Culture, it comes with a price but worth each cent ! My daughter returned from the Spa happy, relaxed and fully at ease ! Long story short, keeping in mind the many resorts that I had the honor to visit, I would argue the is the very best ! Thank you very much for your Hospitality ! Truly Frank

We just had an amazing experience at the Banyon Tree Mayakoba. It was our first visit to Mexico for vacation and we will absolutely be returning. This resort had it all... beautiful large villas with private individual pools, jacuzzi, outdoor showers, outdoor bathtub, and all the amenities. We enjoyed our Villa bikes to ride around the private property grounds , riding to the beach club, the resort pools, to the shops and restaurants at El Pueblito, the nature trail and to the Canote in site. Golf carts were also at our service anytime with pick up from our Villa in minutes. Shuttle service to the other 3 Mayakoba resorts was easy and fast. The beach club and resort pools had wonderful drinks and snacks. The beach had white sugar sand, warm water and lots of water sports available. Now let me get to the best part that made this trip amazing.... the service and high quality dining.... Alejandro and Christina at the concierge desk were amazing... helpful in every way! So informative and knowledgeable about the resort, Mayakoba and the surrounding areas and such a pleasure. Abraham and Alberto at the Sands beach pool and Daniel at the Reflections pool provided excellent service. We also had the pleasure of a couples rainforest service at the spa. WOW! Best we've ever had. So unique and so relaxing. Would highly recommend this experience to all who vacation here! Saffron Thai food was TDF and all the food was top knotch. Can not wait to return here for our next vacation! A five star resort for sure!! We love Four Season resorts in the US and Hawaii.... Banyon Tree just made our list of wonderful vacation resorts! Thank you to all the staff who made our 20 year wedding anniversary spectacular. We will be back with our entire family soon!!
