One of the best vacation experiences of our life
Posted Nov 23, 2016
My wife and I went there for our 20th anniversary and were not disappointed. The Mahekal Beach Resort is top notch. Everyone is so welcoming, the grounds are absolutely gorgeous - and right on the ocean as well - the food and drinks were wonderful and the rooms were fairly comfortable. Although the ultimate goal was to get away from everything completely, there were a few times when we needed to check our email. The wifi was dependable for the most part, but I noticed that it dropped us a few times, but no big deal at all.
What impressed me the most is the care that goes on in the facility. I appreciate and notice when staff is working to maintain the place, and they were doing so constantly without being a distraction. To continue with the care, the staff is always warm and welcoming and always smiling. My only issue, and trust me it is simply nitpicking, is that sometimes during meals, the staff can tend to be overly attentive. Some may appreciate it, but I personally don't need my chair pushed in for me every time I get up or water poured for me every couple of minutes. Like I said, nitpicking.
I know that efforts have been made to help the situation, and it is not the fault of the resort at all, but the loud house music from the resort next door, Mamitas, can be annoying at times. It's not a huge distraction, but it is always there. All in all, one of the best hotel experiences of my life and we will be going back!
