“Amazing destination wedding”

I held my destination wedding at Mahekal in October. It was beautiful and Karla (the wedding coordinator) made sure that everything was absolutely perfect! Friends and family loved the resort and many have already booked trips to go back. Great location and excellent service. I would definitely recommend to anyone considering a trip to Playa del Carmen.

“Mahekal is our favorite vacation destination”

This was our third trip to Mahekal Beach Resort. Every time is better than the last! The people are the most genuine, authentic, and nicest we have ever experienced. Nicholas and his staff at Fuego - Rogelio, Rubicel , Manuel, Jared, Jesus, Elias, Enrique, Alberto, & Fidel are top-notch servers and exceptional people overall! On the beach, where we basked with our constant supply of tortilla chips, guacamole and Pico de Gallo and drinks all 8 days, Manuel, Mariano, Manolo & Gilberto were always right on call. At the Spa, Ruby and Martha were peaceful & gentle souls who scrubbed and massaged and soothed our beings for the Terra Maya, the Aroma and the Rostro de sol. Lovely place, phenomenal jacuzzi. The landscaping, the pools, the palapas, all three restaurants, the beachfront . . . all of it, just the best. I cannot recommend this resort enough. Everyone should just go here. Truly, you'll not regret it!

“Home away from home”

Pros: Loved the hammocks on our front porch and not needing an elevator. The grounds were beautiful and you felt like you were walking through a forest.

Location: Excellent location with lots of shopping and restaurants within 1/4 to a mile.

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcomed and cared for. All of the staff (waiters, hostesses, maids, and maintenance and lobby staff) were cheerful and friendly, happy to help when needed. The grounds were gorgeous and we loved being in a place that wasn't a high-rise hotel.

“Enjoy!! A great place to stay!”

We really enjoyed our stay at the Mahekal Resort. The grounds and facilities are very well kept, the staff friendly and helpful, great beach, nice pools, and good eats and drinks on the grounds. Be sure to ask for the bar tender Chicken Little and order the Martini El Pastor at Fuego, its awesome. We had a Jungle view room on the top level. It was a very comfortable room and the pitched roofs make the room feel very open. Each unit has hammocks on the patio or balcony, a great place to hang out and read a book. The location is just a few blocks off 5th and near some of the best restaurants and bars in Playa. On-site there is a craft hut where you can design you own ceramic or wood plate, bowl, etc. After you paint the design, they glaze and kiln your piece and you can pick it up the next day. It was fun, high quality, turned out great, and cost just a few pesos. One of our favorite things was Rogelio greeting us for breakfast everyday, not only do you get 5 star service but he is genuinely warm and friendly, who can bring smile to your face even after the latest nights out ;) Be sure to ask for him if you go to the buffet Las Olas.

“The superb Mahekal Beach Resort!”

This was absolutely the perfect holiday! The food, the facilities and staff were fantastic. My wife and I have never experienced the level of service we received - 5 star - all the way. A big thank you to Angel, our server in the restaurants, Manuel who brought us our drinks on the beach and Sergio our bartender. Excellent service with a big smile every time.

“5* Facebook review”

We went to our honeymoon on August 8th and stay there for a week. We fell in love with the resort! We stayed in one of the Palapas. Had a gorgeous view of the beach and looking out from the porch in the hammocks ever day was priceless! Our room service and service overall in the entire resort was excellent! The resort was always kept clean and all the staff were so attentive and nice to everyone. Mr. Vicente was a great bartender at the Itzi Bar. Every morning for our breakfast Mr. Rogelio at Olas always greeted us and was so nice; a wonderful and amazing waiter, always saw him moving, greeting, and taking care of all the visitors! For dinner Mr. Angel at Cocina was also a wonderful waiter. Beautiful weather during our stay there, except the last two days it was rainy, and even after the rain we had an amazing time. We went to the spa and it was the best relaxation and relief we have had in a long time. Definitely a memorable a memorable vacation!
