Club Maeva Miramar Tampico
Travel Blogs from Tampico
These are photos of our trip to Manzanillo Mexico. We stayed at the Club Maeva Resort, which was excellent.
We arrive in Tampico tired and get a taxi out to a hotel that no longer exists. Our taxi driver suggests another which is undergoing building work, and we end up at the beach front where half the hotels are stupidy expensive towers of sanity, or grimy part-time brothels. We end up back at the bus station and buy our tickets out for the next morning!
We arrived back in Mexico on Sunday the 12th of September. It was a great trip down from Portland but we were very tired. We drove about 10 hours every day. As some of you know we had a sister from here that was visiting Portland ride back with us. "Karen" When we arrived back in Altamira her mother had a delicious meal waiting for us. See why we love it here. The brothers are really wonderful. Anyway, I will try to show some pictures of our travels through the US. It was so beautiful.
... to Cancun!! Yay, this is so much fun.”
Steven: “Whew, that was a little crazy but nothing can stop us now.”

Police sirens: “Woooop Wooop”

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Maeva Miramar Tampico
We arrived Dec 31st. It was an early morning departure for travel but we were sitting by the pool before 1:30pm. The transfer from the airport went smoothly. The reception at 2pm had our keys ready and the bags were at the room by 2.30pm. The New Years Eve gala was initially well done with dinner in the ballroom and entertainment. It slowed quickly after the entertainment but there was music for dancing. We were tired and retired early. I heard that the party lasted to well into the wee hours. Generally the buffets were good, the two sit down dinners were excellent. We played golf at a wonderfull course in a gated community. One avid golfer who only books golfing vacations told me it was probably the best value golf package he and his wife had had over the past ten years. The rooms were bright and cheery although the beds were extra hard and the pillows "lumpy". We were able to get better ones. The shower water was always hot and at full pressure. The staff were terrific especially the Sunquest Rep. They went the extra mile to try their best to please you. Sure, there were a few communication barriers but overall they worked hard at providing great service. The grounds are well kept and exceptionally clean. The pools were warm and inviting. the adult pool with the swim up bar was exceptional. The beach was sandy and not pebbles and rocks like some resorts. The beach furniture was in need of freshening up but who cares when your having a snooze in one of the hammocks ! All and all we enjoyed the stay. We didn't encounter any "refinery" smells or really cold food like some people did. Right place at the right time !! We would return in a flash !
Do not go here!
do not go to this hotel - it is terrible! i am still here (arrived on friday and just now for the first time got onto the internet). will write more when i arrive back in ontario.......but just wanted to warn those looking NOT to book this place. the food is not edible, the hotel is sub-par and there is absolutely nothing to do here. it is a huge waste of money at any price!
I stayed at Maeva Miramar for one week (Dec 31th to Jan 7th) with my husband and my parents and we all had a wonderful time.
Returned last night, so review is current. The people are friendly and really do try to help. The waiters are all smiles, as they hand you a beer when you've asked for a bloody mary. Their understanding of English is almost non-existant. Yes, it's their country, and they speak Spanish, and we did try to learn some of the words to make it easier. But you should have bar tenders who know how to tend bar and make the basic drinks - and they don't. They didn't know what a Mai Tai was. They don't even have a drink menu, that you can point to a drink and say "that one", you didn't know if you were getting a margueritta or a daqueri. Shots were small, less than 1 oz. so you could just drink whatever they handed you and it wouldn't matter.
A great resort, my family and I have been there 5 times. We really enjoy the beutiful grounds. The sevice is excellent. The all inclusive package really includes everything. Try the Juana Cata resrturant. The Maeva Amigos try hard to make every body happy, especially at the kids camp. The beach is okay, but the bar sevice is excellent. The ocean front rooms are a little smaller than the other rooms, but the view is worth it. The matresses are hard and I complaine about it all the time. The cleaning staff will provide extra conforters and that makes it a little better. The price is great and you can find great deals during mothers day and in the month of June. Children under 12 are usually free. We take about 3 trips a year and the Royal Maeva is one of our favorites, next to Sandy Bay in Jamaica. The Gulf of Mexico does not compare to the Carribian but niether does the price. PS the food is good.
I really enjoyed our time there for the most part. Except when it came to check-in and out. We thought we bought an all-inclusive but we really purchased a "European All-inclusive". Which didn't include anything but the room and breakfast. We ended up purchsing the all inclusive but they said they would get back to us on the price.The hotel was beautiful and we made many friends with the workers, even exchanged emails. When we went to check out we thought we had paid all of our tab except the all inclusive bands. Turns out that they tried to charge us double on everything and literally held us there for 3 hours and wouldn't let us leave the hotel. We didn't know much Spanish and they saw that we were young so the front desk people took advantage of us. They were rude and then acted like they knew no English. I would definitly recommend this place but make sure that you watch there every move when it comes to your tab.
Wonderful experience. Our children cried about leaving and are begging to go back. Mom and Dad had long days to watch the waves and relax. A perfect family vacation!
This place is awesome!
This was the absolute best place I ever stayed. All inclusive really means ALL inclusive. Magnificent service and a beautiful beach. I strongly recommend this!!
My wife and I spent three nights at this ALL INLUSIVE Club.. It was outstanding! The attention we received for our every need even though it was Semana Santa and "all" of Mexico was there, a full house. "All" means that all alcoholic drinks, beer, and wine are included from 11 a.m. - 2 a.m.
The hidden paradise
This place is extraordinary!!!
I have been there more than four times. The people there are exceptional. The beach is nice, the food is great, and the service is amazing. Going there on vacation is the best!! Out of all the distinations in Mexico, this is one of the best.
