TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 5 days ago

Our family has enjoyed many stays at this most amazing resort and each and every time is better than the previous. There was a travel alert recently cautioning travel to Mexico but we couldn't have felt more secure and safe. We travel often to Mexico and have never felt insecure or unsafe. From the moment you arrive at the Cancun airport you are greeted by Rosewood's friendly staff and escorted into a new white Cadillac Escalade where you are provided clean towels, snacks, beers, water, etc. Just a short drive later you arrive at the most magnificent resort in all of Mexico and are greeted by staff with complimentary cocktails. What a way to start a vacation. After a very short check in a boat ride takes you to your chosen room. This trip we stayed at an oceanfront room and we absolutely loved it. The newly expanded beach was even better than July (we stayed here for the 4th of July this year - a must). The beachfront is huge and beautiful with newly planted palm trees, cabanas and hammocks. Incredible. The grounds are meticulous and the workers work tirelessly each and every day to maintain the property impeccably. We always travel with our son who begs us constantly to return to Rosewood. The kids club is sensational. In fact, he spends almost the entire day there. Every hour they have different activities and he has a blast. The staff at the kids club are so kind, caring and fun. We absolutely love each and every one of them. We once again did la ceiba dinner and had a blast. Damaris from the kids club babysat our son and he loved it. La ceiba is a must for anyone visiting Rosewood. The meal is always fabulous and you have the opportunity to meet and have dinner and drinks with guests from all over the US and world. You will always spend time at la ceiba with directors of the resort Daniel Scott and Lutz Arnold. They are the best. Nowhere else will you find top management spending time with guests. We once again had a blast with Lutz and always love his company. My wife spent everyday at the spa- she is obsessed. We travel often yearly and all over the world. The spa at Rosewood is her favorite by far. The gym is fantastic and offers classes daily. We ate at agave azul and Punta Bonita for dinner. Both restaurants were fabulous. I cannot say enough great things about the grounds, beach and food (they are all exceptional) but what truly makes Rosewood stand above the rest is the customer service, staff and management. Lutz Arnhold, Daniel Scott and their staff are top notch. Lutz held champagne o'clock on Saturday serving champagne for lunch to all guests. What a way to start the weekend. Each and every day there are numerous free amenities served often. The staff provides complimentary facial massages poolside and sunglass cleaning. Upon checking into your room there is always a hand written note welcoming you to Rosewood as well as a complimentary bottle of Mezcal. Each and every guest is provided with a bicycle to navigate the resort or the serene trails surrounding the resort. The staff at the ocean pool and beach (ezikquel, axel, Daniel, Salomon, Gerardo, Raul, etc.) are awesome- so friendly, kind and accommodating. They are always eager to pamper you. Having time to spend with our favorite waiter Miguel Angel at Punta Bonita made our trip. Miguel truly cares about the guests and their experience and takes time to know everyone. He is marvelous. Fabian and Matteo are also fantastic at Punta Bonita. Managers Apolo and Juan Carlos run a fantastic operation at Punta Bonita. It is the little things that Rosewood does that separate it from any other hotel. The Rosewood property is one of a kind- a lush tropical gem with waterways weaving through mangroves, scenic trails, fantastic restaurants, a wonderful spa and gym, a world renowned golf course, the most amazing staff and the best management (Daniel Scott and Lutz Arnhold). What differentiates Rosewood from any other hotel is the staff, culture and customer service. You will never be treated better anywhere else. We eagerly await our return to Rosewood and miss the resort each and every day we are not there. We highly recommend Rosewood Mayakoba to anyone searching for the best of the best!

My wife and I visited Rosewood Mayakoba with two other couples for 5 days in early October. I can say it was by far the best experience I've had at a resort to date and I have been at many (supposed) 5-star resorts. Ever detail of our stay was handled by the resort's management and staff with perfection. The grounds, pools, beach, lobby and spa are meticulously maintained and give you the sense of being in another world. The food is terrific at all of the restaurants and the chef's lunch and dinner with Juan Pablo were both amazing - great food, great service and great people. On our second day, the forecast called for a direct hit by Hurricane Nate. The resort gave all of us lagoon-view suites which were just as fabulous as the beach-view suites we were moved out of for one night just to be safe. The hurricane missed us but the weather wasn't great all day/night but we didn't care. Management and our butlers (Ekaterina and Claudia - both exceptional at what they do) handled everything and made sure guests were comfortable and enjoying themselves during the storm. The next day, we were moved back to our original suites. We were able to visit and eat at the other Rosewood resorts that are connected to Mayakoba (Fairmont, Andaz and Banyon Tree) and all had their own amazing qualities but IMO the Mayakoba was the best of the four. I made the mistake of not visiting the spa until right before I had to leave and I definitely regret not spending some time there. You'll have to visit it to fully experience the tranquility and design of the spa facilities and grounds. My wife did spend a half day at the spa and said it was the best spa experience she'd ever had. In summary, I could not possibly recommend Rosewood Mayakoba highly enough. You will realize what you've been missing all of this time.

This resort never disappoints. This was our FOURTH time back and not the last. Perfect for couples and families! Not overrun by either. It is aesthetically beautiful in every way, but there are many five star resorts that are that way. What makes this place stand out from the crowd is the PEOPLE. The staff is sincerely second to none. Everyone sincerely LOVES what they do, and takes the utmost pride, and it shows!!! We've been fortunate enough to travel to some pretty outstanding properties all over the world, but the service here is a cut above the rest. Cannot WAIT to return!!

I'm very late in writing this review and it's due to feeling I could not accurately describe our experience. My husband and I spent 7 wonderful nts/days at this resort 4nts in a Deluxe Lagoon and 3nts Beachfront Studio Suite for our 15th Anniversary. The resort grounds and rooms are beautiful and will not disappoint, I truly don't think it matters what room you stay in. They are beautifully appointed, have wonderful outdoor spaces/plunge pools, spacious rooms, comfortable beds and luxurious bathrooms. We stayed during the summer and used our outdoor shower more than the indoor shower. The food is wonderful and diverse with plenty of choices on property. The truth is what sets this resort apart is the people, I have never met a staff more committed and truly invested in making their guests stay an experience they will never forget. After reading many other reviews, I began to think that my expectations of what might await us would cause us to be disappointed when we arrived if we didn't have the same "experience" as other guests who reviewed this resort...this is where I can tell won't be disappointed! This vacation was everything we expected and more. I would highly recommend that you partake of everything that the Rosewood has to offer. The Spa is second to none and the atmosphere alone is worth the time spent. I don't The special dinners available to guests range from a fun, casual dinner on the beach to a more intimate dinner (La Ceiba?) with other guests in the garden experiencing flavors from the region- my understanding is this was dreamed up by the head chef and the manager and it's an amazing experience. Book La Ceiba early as it fills up; recommended for families with older kids or couples only. We also experienced a wonderful boat dinner on the night of our anniversary, the food, atmosphere of the Lagoon and our amazing boat captain Martin, will make this an experience we will always remember. The beach was great, my husband and I enjoyed taking long walks along the coast and lounging during the day under our umbrella. We did experience the annual seaweed influx but the beach crews worked hard to keep the beach looking good- it's nature and something you have to understand may happen. The beach/pool staff will not disappoint- we truly thank Daniel, Aaron, Alfonso and Samuel for making our days on the beach relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. As I mentioned it's truly the people that make this resort so amazing. It's impossible to describe but there is a magic that you experience when you engage with the incredible people who work at this resort. They make you feel like family and you won't want to leave. Jose Maria is one of the most amazing Guest Relations managers I have ever come across in my travels, he is a big part of what makes this resort so memorable. Aurora, thank you for making the celebrations truly magical. Our butlers Alejandra and Yanet were truly remarkable and catered to our every need. We are waiting for a chance to go back and have already decided we will take our children in the future. I highly recommend everyone who has the opportunity visit this resort that is luxury defined!

I am hesitant to write this review because I don't want everyone to know about the best kept secret near Cancun. The Rosewood Mayakoba is our favorite place in the world to vacation and we travel alot. You can't help but decompress and relax at this gorgeous resort. From the spacious suites and delicious food to the world-class spa and spectacular beach, the Mayakoba never disappoints. Daniel inspires the staff and has created a resort that is above and beyond all others. Every time we visit another resort, we regret not being back at Mayakoba. The ideal location for couples and families. Our family looks forward to our Mayakoba visit every year and it never disappoints. There are too many staff members to call out by name -- we are so fond of all of them. They all make the experience special and ensure that our entire family has a fabulous time.
