One of the most impressive beach resorts in Mexico, the eco-friendly Fairmont Mayakoba boasts a Aaa Overall Beach Resort Rating and caters very well to both couples and families with top-notch service and extremely affordable room rates for a resort of its class. With a +6 TripValue, it’s one the best values in the entire Mexico/Caribbean region. The rooms are far from the beach club (a shuttle is provided) and drinks and meals here are on the pricey side; but the resort offers an outstanding stretch of private white-sand beachfront (recently made larger with an expensive restoration project), exquisite fine dining at three on-site restaurants (where kids eat free), verdant tropical grounds with hiking trails and waterways that guests can explore with lanchitas (small electric boats), multiple swimming pools including an adults-only infinity pool, an impeccable 20,000-square-foot spa with Mayan influences and mangrove treetop treatment areas, rooms with deep marble soaking tubs, an impressive fitness center, and unique activities such as Mexican craft beer tasting and wildlife spotting throughout the grounds. Other activities include golf at the adjacent PGA-caliber El Camaleon course designed by Greg Norman, snorkeling, catamaran sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and excellent cooking classes. The kids club is superior, too, with plenty of activities ranging from Mexican-inspired arts and crafts to outdoor educational adventures. An all-inclusive plan is available but not obligatory.
