Travel Blogs from Cancun
... shopping mall in the hotel zone called Isla shopping mall during our time in Cancun and noticed a Indian restaurant there, we have been trying to find Indian food the whole time we've been away and have been unsuccessful, it seems that Mexicans are not fans of Indian food so this is the first Indian restaurant we've seen in 3 months. We headed there for dinner in the early ...
... use it so imaging our surprise she we got a message from PayPal saying we had received a donations from Ben Biggs with a lovely note and offering to buy us a dinner on the road. There was once catch: we had to post pictures of the meal.
"How cool is that!" we thought. Such a generous offer had to be met with a dinner worthy of the gesture. It couldn't be just any old meal. No trip to Hooters or Mac Donalds would suffice. No, this had to ...
... br> Just as I was letting go of my mother’s hand, knowing that she was now safely on the boat, my dad found himself in a bit of trouble… the current was pretty strong to be fair, but he somehow managed to swallow a lot of water and started panicking, getting himself into trouble. It was standard dad behaviour and was pretty hilarious... By this point I had removed both of my fins as they were too tight ...
... am going to figure something out! I gotta do some research, get on a job, save some cash money! Bcus the world likes exchanging meaningless paper for goods!!! Anyways this travel blog is no where near done! I will continue to travel till I die! I will prepare more next time round. I've learned!

... long line to check-in ourselves.
Due to hurricane Sandy there was a lot of people and at check in, the airlines were offering us $200 to change our flights for a later time as the flight was overbooked. I was not keen on the idea as I had no faith in the general transport services in the USA and airlines were on that list. Due to the overbooked flight, Subash and I ended up sitting separately. Subash ended up sitting between a husband and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Maya Cancun
I will definately return to the Casa Maya
It was our first trip to Cancun and we really enjoyed our stay at the Casa Maya. The staff was very friendly and waited on our every need.
Honestly, service is excellent there. I can't say enough about how much fun we had and already have plans to return to the Casa Maya next year.
THe Best in Cancun
I think that Hotel Casay Maya was great. The rooms were nice, the view was gorgeous, and the staff could not have been better. They were the nicest people in the world. I love Casa Maya with all of my heart!!!!
I am not impressed with Casa Maya and would not choose to stay there again! The meals and beverages were extremely over priced and the service throughout the hotel left a lot to be desired. My room was adequate and clean, air conditioner didn't work well - several maintenence problems - they did take care of them! My rating on a scale of 1-10 is a 3!
This is an old building and it looks it. Our room had a loose sliding door that whined in the wind, air-conditioning that refrigerated one room and left the other warm, worn out carpet, poorly patched tile work in the bathroom, and the room lacked a coffee maker and dishes until we asked for them. There were signs advertising theme buffets in the two restaurants but no prices or menus posted. Drinks and food were expensive so the bar and restaurants were usually deserted and boring.
The beach is rocky and weedy. And beware the sales pitch! Going to the timeshare sales pitch gets you discounts on some tours and a meal, but you will be facing some very pushy salespeople for hours.
Are you people kidding me? I just read the other reviews and I honestly think that they are confusing the CASA MAYA with the CASA MAGNA Hotel?....... I was given a gift from a very good friend (her RCI) to stay at this "5" star hotel.......believe me this is NOT a 5 star hotel. When we arrived - I insisted on seeing the room first (because of honest reviews on another website) - after 5 or 6 finally picked one in the other building-this building is VERY old and although the staff is friendly there is nothing to boast about except that a restaurant is across the street and you are a short bus ride to the heart of downtown. ROOMS - old, think of one of those "drive up" 35$ a night rooms but is on the beach. BEACH - Do not go in without REEF SHOES! I saw little children with cut marks, then they would go into the pool.....hmmmm POOL - geared for children DRINKS - Margarita 7$ USD LOBBY & BAR - brown, old, smallIt is not the fault of the staff that this hotel is old and outdated with a rocky beach, it is the fault of RCI because they rated this hotel a "Gold Crown" DO NOT TRUST RCI - visit tripadvisor first before you book anything.The only good thing about this hotel is that there is a bank machine on the property and they have the internet for 5$ for 1 hour!!! I used this to book our last two days at the CASA MAGNA....Which does have a GREAT BEACH with waves and no rocks and a nice open bar at the beach!!!Also, when people write in a review that has less than 20 words.......you have to wonder why they don't describe anything right?DO NOT STAY HERE
The best in Cancun!
I loved the service at the Casa Maya. It was a great experience. I stayed there August 17-24, 2003 and loved every minute of it. The activities were a lot of fun to participate in. Shout out to the activity coordinators ("GO JENNY GO JENNY") I got to meet lots of people to hang out with and its totally recommended! Cali gurl Sandra
Casa Maya is a great hotel. Friendly family atmosphere, friendly and hard working staff, safe clean beach, nice food, great swimming pools. We loved it! John and Harsa, London
Spring Break 2003
The Casa Maya was wonderful. During the day the place to be is by the pool with beer in hand enjoying the music and activities. The nightlife is right across the street or a short drive down the road. The beach is beautiful. Also...they let you bring people back into the room (Good for the fellas), others won't let visitors in. Have fun and enjoy. I'll be back next year for 2004.
I Love Casa Maya
We have stayed at the Casa Maya every year since 1994 and continue to enjoy the friendly staff and personal attention. They have one of the best beaches in Cancun for swimming, etc., which is lined with numerous palapas to offer shade for those individuals that cannot handle the intense sun. Bar and food service is available constantly without ever moving from your beach chair and they have the BEST ceviche you've ever tasted. The Sunday morning brunch in the main restaurant is also excellent, offering mostly mexican fare. They are in the process of remodeling all of the rooms, which are all oceanfront. We always enjoy our stay and look forward to returning year after year.
Stayed here Sept to Oct of 2002. Arrived right after a hurricane and the beach was covered with seaweed, but was clean and beautiful by the middle of the week. Beach was nice. Shallow, not alot of waves, a few rocks on either end, but mostly white sand. Several pools, and hot tub.
