On Mexico's famed Yucatan Peninsula, in the seaside state of Quintana Roo, is the breathtaking Fairmont Mayakoba. The resort, wonderfully set into the surrounding tropical jungle, mangrove forests, and pristine beaches, creates a brilliant and tranquil stay just a short trip south of Cancun. The 401 elegantly appointed rooms provide true luxury with warm earth tones, marble floors, and beautiful wood accents.

Step out through large double doors to your private terrace to enjoy a gorgeous breeze before a day full of enjoyment and relaxation. At Fairmont Mayakoba, you will discover exciting days in the sun, and peaceful nights nestled in the lap of luxury.

For a delightful morning, head out to the white sands of adjacent Playa Del Carmen for a day of great tanning and refreshing tropical waters. Or begin your day at Willow Steam Spa with a deep tissue massage to melt your stresses away. For a perfect romantic spa experience, try the couple's suite built into the treetops. For some truly fantastic snorkeling and diving, take a quick boat trip to the nearby island of Cozumel. Here, some of the world's premier dive spots afford great views of coral reefs and brilliant sea life. For golf enthusiasts, the 18-hole El CamaleÚn Golf Course, managed by Fairmont, offers a great game surrounded by forests and breathtaking ocean vistas. For a great meal at Fairmont Mayakoba, head to La Laguna Grill & Bar, where healthy options are available as well as a fabulous buffet. For a wonderful dinner, dine on global contemporary cuisine at Las Brisas Restaurant, or delight your palate with fresh local seafood at El Puerto Restaurant.

This was my first visit in a long time to a luxury resort and if you're dreaming of a place to kick back, let your hair down letting nature pleasantly invade every sense of yours, run there, don't walk! We had bought the Appetite for luxury deal, which is well worth it, to eat and drink all you want without calculating what something's going to cost you! Given the location, there are tons of activities in and around the resort - great for wonderful day trips to well known places. The only time service can be slightly iffy is when there's a staff change, otherwise we were impressed with the amount of personal care given! We will definitely be returning! A slightly weird incident took away from the experience temporarily, in that one of our party glanced at our bill and found a confusing $100 charge from their boutique. But to their credit, when we asked for the bill related to this item (after reaching home), the $100 was immediately credited to the credit card. It's a good practice to check all bills there and then while travelling, no matter how fancy the place...most of us don't do it!

Okay, so we didn't see the monkeys, but that was our only real disappointment at Fairmont Mayakoba. We purchased the Signature Casita, and were glad we did. Our balcony overlooked the lagoon (hate that name, like a shallow river), was surrounded by trees, and felt secluded though we were in a building with four other rooms. Beautiful birds in the tree right by us. A very easy walk to pools and restaurants. Golf carts drove right by our building every few minutes and could take us to the beach in minutes. The bikes were a great idea, but the seats were UNCOMFORTABLE and I felt the effects for days after making the decision whether to ride them again a very difficult one (I did, but just for a short distance). We went on two boat trips. One didn't require a reservation and really was a realtor's tour of Mayakoba focusing on the properties (still a nice break on the water and interesting to see the other hotels). The other one that took a reservation was more of a nature tour of the Fairmont property only. Still no monkeys, but did see some interesting wildlife. The food was mostly good, but did vary a bit from restaurant to restaurant. (We chose to go all-inclusive and I was glad we did so that I wouldn't get sticker shock and could just order whatever sounded good). Breakfast at La Laguna was good and the staff remembered us from day to day. They actually seemed sad to hear it was our last day. The only place we decided we wouldn't return to was Las Brisas for dinner. The staff was great but we didn't finish our dinners... it honestly seemed like someone in the kitchen just didn't care as much and it showed in the presentation and the execution. Other dinners exceeded our expectations, including at El Puerto, where I asked to meet the chef because I was so crazy about everything that came out of his kitchen. We loved the jungle-y feel of this place. Guests here came from all over; it was obviously not marketed solely to Americans. Our surprise was how many children were here, given the price point. Oh, I forgot to add that our housekeeper left us a little doll to take home on our last day... so cute. Bottom line, we would return in a minute. Next time, we will take advantage of the early morning kayak tours, but probably not the bike tours. Ouch. And we keep our fingers crossed, hoping to see the monkeys.

Such amazing genuine service, convenience, cleanliness. An amazing property. Milton the chief concierge went out of his way to help us with our concert booking. He would not quit until we were able to get our tickets. So appreciative. Gerardo in front desk, Juan De Dios waiter in lobby lounge and Alfonso the bellman could not have been nicer

The service has always being outstanding, but what really surprised me this time is the beach! They improve it so much! The beach it's so wide now! I would guess more than 30 meters, so there's plenty of space for volley ball games, kayaks, kids running around, etc A truck passes by every afternoon picking up the zargazo, so it's clean and odor free. We still have a few more days, stay tune for pictures!

7 of us had a wonderful week at the Fairmont. The Fairmont beach had pristine white sand and bright blue water. Free kayaks and paddle boards and katamaran use. The Mayakopa has rivers running through it and a lush jungle landscape. We saw monkeys, turtles, and strange but friendly raccoon like creatures. It is a massive resort but has frequent shuttles throughout the grounds with friendly drivers. The spa is huge and luxurious. Our villa was very big and on the lagoon with a rooftop pool. The kids (less expensive) room turned out to be large with a nice patio and view. No bad rooms there. We had to see the onsite doctors twice and they were both extremely accommodating and helpful. The Conciege were all extremely helpful, especially Christina who made sure my daughter got her medicine from the pharmacy ASAP (ear infection). Our villa came with a Butler, David, who provided outstanding service and A+ recommendations of where to go and eat offsite. Very nice to have the Butler fill your fridge and make all your reservations for you! We would simply send him a text. He would also check in to see if we needed anything if he hadn't heard from us. He even happily accommodated the kid's requests and filled their fridge, though their room did not have Butler service included. I think David was one of the highlights of the trip for all of us! We did not want to leave.
