4.0 Mediocre
They mixed up with the room. It should have been two queens and we’ve got 1 king. Also the food was average. Much better food in the restaurants next door.
2.0 Poor
This place is awful! If you are ok to pay 400$ and sleep in the bed full of insects then go there. Staff is very rude and have no idea about hospitality business!
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Love this place: Our eighth stay in ten years!
Cons:Really can’t see how anything could be improved. Sometimes music from concerts at nearby Mamita’s is horrendous but that is not Mahekal’s fault.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Amazing service and staff, clean and beautiful property, great location on the beach and near all the city center has to offer.
Cons:In room refrigerators would be nice to have.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:The service and atmosphere were impeccable
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:I was a pleasant surprise, it was a last minute booking, so we didn't new much about this place, but it is very nice, good food, excellent service, beach front and a street away from the 5 ave.
6.5 Okay
Pros:Great location, unique layout, good restaurant
Cons:Dirty floor, stains on duvet, leaking shower
6.5 Okay
Pros:The location is great and it LOOKS like a tropical paradise. If you are in your 20's or only visiting for 1 or 2 days this is a great spot.
Cons:The sound from Mamelita's is consistent and all-present from about noon until 7 or 8pm each night. When I say sound, I mean a massive bass that permeates all structures and covers the beach from South to North. There was unfortunately 2 weddings during our stay and I felt terrible for those brides having beach ceremonies with bumping bass. The houses with straw roofs have a consistent "wood rot" smell and there are termites in the exterior porches.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean rooms, with good facilities. No TV or coffee machine, etc. beach, resturant and spa options were very good. Staff was excellent....and I mean across the board. Just amazing.
Cons:Rooms, facilities, location, staff and secluded beach. I enjoyed it so much, already booked another trip in early 2017. The central location to Playa Del Carmen was especially appreciated.
9.4 Wonderful
Pros:Stayed two nights with my boyfriend and we loved this place. We tend to avoid the mega resort hotels so this was perfect. Took advantage of the half board, the food was good, not anything that stood out but appreciated. The drinks were about $5 USD which is ok, wish happy hour were longer. Tell them to make the margaritas strong :) The location was great! Loved being right on the beach and also able to walk quinta avenida in the evenings. All the staff was incredibly friendly, always trying to help. We did not have issues with noise at all. In fact I thought the music could have been a bit louder at the pool. I brought my own speaker to the beach for music but tried not to play it too loudly.
