We had an incredible time and highly recommend the dinning (loved everything but we’ll never forget Saffron w/Oscar), boat tour, and Sands Beach Club. Gammy (Gamamiel? sorry if misspelled Buddy!!) at the Sands pool was the best experience we’ve ever had- the perfect blend of personality and service. Couldn’t stop being awed by the layout and location. The only real downside we found was unfortunately they don’t answer the phone which is so hard to write as we clearly felt the rest of the staff did an incredible job! In Villa dial 0 would often take 4-5 attempts with no callback and same deal with In Villa Dining. Our airport transportation, which was arranged through the resort, dropped us off at the wrong terminal and we still haven’t received a response other than 1 Concierge asked us to call their vendor (nothing from them either). I truly say this in the hope they can address picking up the phone and give the rest of the team the respect they deserve. I have a feeling they already know this is an issue. To cheer this up a bit- we actually spent far less than anticipated and wished we went bigger! Some items may seem pricey but we felt overall the price was justifiable for the experience. We really loved Mayakoba and will be back very soon! We miss you too Manuel!
