Beach front and wonderful staff

Posted May 17, 2015
Cons: Liquor was watered down. Too many $ mistakes
2nd time at Mahakel. Stayed in beach front and LOVED it! Staff are attentive and very pleasant. Quiet, peaceful and within walking distance to "5th" ave for shopping and dining. Food was good. I recommend eating lunch and going out for dinner. Dinner Buffets were a little boring. Check ALL bar taps and food bills very carefully each time. Mistakes were made in their favor every time. we are already making plans to go again next year!!!

Wonderful hotel

Posted May 14, 2015
Pros: Everything was new and clean.
Cons: We heard the tips we added to our bill does not go to the staff which is not good at all.
Location: A quick walk to the stores nearby. Lots to do in the area.
We were very happy with our stay. The hotel was clean, large but not too large and right on the beach. The pools were cute and the stretch of beach perfect. Would highly recommend this hotel.

VACANZA CON MATRIMONIO ANNESSO

Posted May 6, 2015
Pros: Ubicazione, servizio, cibo, struttura
Cons: L'utilizzo del ristorante vista mare.
Location: L'hotel è situato nelle vicinanze di diverse strutture archelogine, che permettono un'alternanza tra relax, cultura e paesaggi inconatminati
La struttura è confortevole, ottima ubicazione, due piscine un idromassaggio tutto con vista mare. Il ristorante dove viene servita la colazione (a volte anche la cena a bordo piscina) è fresco ed accogliente. I buffet sono fornitissimi (frutta di ogni tipo, succhi vari dolci, salati, uova, ecc.) e di primissima qualità.

Another wonderful stay at Mahekal

Posted Apr 13, 2015
Pros: Setting, location, accommodations, staff, pretty much everything
Location: 10 minute walking distance to the heart of 5th Avenue. Great snorkeling near by. Can take a high speed ferry to Cozumel.
We visited Mahekal from March 29 – April 5, 2015. This was our 5th trip to Mahekal in 7 years. I should start out by saying that my wife and I have been to multiple destination in the Caribbean including Dominican Republic, Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, and Mexico. In all of our travels there are only two resorts we've been to more than once; Sandals Antigua and Mahekal. With Mahekal we really feel like we found something special. First off, before we arrived I was concerned that the renovations changed the overall feel of the resort. I was pleased to find that they did not. In fact, I didn’t think it was possible, but they made it better. Mahekal still possesses the quaint, charming, small resort feel type characteristics it always had. Mahekal is the ultimate destination for R&R. The new bars and pools really take advantage of the layout with great views of the ocean. The food had always been pretty average in previous stays, but it was much improved this time. Try the Chilean Sea Bass –the best fish I have ever had anywhere. The staff is world class in every area. They are the best in the business. I would especially like to thank Manuel, Rogelio (Roger), and Vegas on the wait staff. Those guys go above and beyond, and they know who you are and what you like within 48 hours of your stay. Vicente and Jose and a couple of the other bartenders whose names I can’t recall are also true professionals (the Mojitos are the best anywhere). Also a special thanks to Boli

Location: great location right on the beach and within easy walking distance to shops and restaurants
Had a relaxing stay with my kids, ages 10 and 14, and mother-in-law--well all loved Mahekal and would come back again. Appreciated being unplugged with no phones or TV; staff was friendly and food good--everyone found plenty to please at all meals.
