We just arrived back from our trip to Banyan Tree Mayakoba. This is an amazing property. It is tucked away in what feels like a jungle and yet is steps from the most beautiful white sand beaches - all on one property! Beyond the spectacular setting itself, the property is immaculate. Staff is constantly working to keep everything pristine and safe for guests. Traveling during Covid-19 could not have felt any safer on the Banyan Tree property. The thing that stood out to me most during out visit was the staff themselves. Everyone we came in contact with was kind, happy, and overly helpful. Everyone clearly is invested in making their guests' experience over the top excellent. We also really enjoyed exploring the property on the bikes that they provide complementary. There are beautiful nature trails that go through the whole property. The new Sands Beach Club is stunning - can't wait to see everything when the whole project is finished. Also high recommend the eco tour boat trips through Mayakoba. Beautiful scenery and very interesting! Do be prepared to pay very high prices for food onsite - this would probably be my only complaint. That being said the quality is excellent and the service at each restaurant is top notch. All the villas have their own private pools, which is amazing! The villas are beautiful and in line with their 5-star rating. Overall 10/10 experience. We will definitely be back!

What a wonderful hotel - really six stars. The newly expanded beach area is awesome. Great food, super friendly staff.

We were hesitating between the Rosewood and the Banyan Tree. We are happy that we chose the latter. the resort offers spacious and exquisite accommodations. the overall feel of the resort, with its lush landscaping, is a perfect blend between sophistication and relaxation. the Rosewood is perhaps more curated and sleek but the Banyan Tree wins hands down in terms of atmosphere, space and friendliness

Very good 8,0
What can we say. This was an early birthday trip for me. It was AWESOME! We had a bliss pool villa. OUTSTANDING, Peaceful, Serene, Relaxed, did I say OUTSTANDING!! They catered to us no matter what. We did have one issue late in the evening our first night, and the staff took care of it fairly quickly. I am absolutely NOT trying to promote or "sell" anything, but we did make a video and would love to share it with you.... Please search "romantic Banyan Tree" [on YT]. Here is the link:

We loved our private villa , swimming pool and soaker tub. The staff was excellent, friendly , attentive but still gave us our privacy. They had beach cruiser bikes and nice trails for us to explore the area. The resort was really clean and the staff was polite. We would definitely stay there again.

5 Star Hotel and Service
The hotel is gorgeous. Lots of open spaces for lounging and dining. Pool is so nice and so is the staff. Staff members always greeted you and went above and beyond. Food is a bit pricey, but we thought it was better quality food than an all inclusive. Our villa was amazing. They heated our pool for us, which was so nice when it got chillier in the evenings. The beach is also beautiful. Great place to sit and eat/drink. The spa is wonderful, as well. We also had the concierge set up a private tour for us. They arranged the car, driver, and guide. They were so nice and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed our time with them. Overall this hotel is a perfect choice for a relaxing vacation! Would highly recommend.
