Travel + Leisure has named the 5-star Fairmont Mayakoba resort as one of the best in Mexico based on a comprehensive list of factors ranging from comfort to architecture and customer service. Fairmont Mayakoba is an architectural masterpiece where nature meets luxury. Guests at the resort can soak in the property’s tropical views, which include beaches and lush forests.

Travel + Leisure has long been one of the big names in the travel industry; the leading magazine has over 4.8 million regular readers. In coming up with a ranking of the country’s top resorts, the magazine asked its readers to rate properties on 10 different criteria, including design, customer service, price-quality ratio, and amenities among others. 

Travelers especially praised Fairmont Mayakoba for its stylish architecture, which they found authentic and reflective of true Mexican Caribbean style. Readers also noted the resort’s impressive views of the surrounding nature as well as the excellent, personalized customer service they received during their stay. 

Located just 40 minutes from Cancun International Airport and some 20 minutes from Playa del Carmen, a popular resort town, Fairmont Mayakoba is accessible and easy to reach from all corners of the Mexican Caribbean. 

The resort is built on 19 hectares right in the heart of the Maya jungle, with lush greenery and plenty of tropical coastline in its vicinity. The luxurious resort has 401 rooms, as well as an array of impressive top-of-the-line amenities that make it stand out amongst the crowd. To bring guests a true sense of Caribbean relaxation, all of the resort’s facilities are designed to integrate into the pristine natural surroundings, inducing a feeling of both luxury and relaxation throughout guests’ stay. 

There are 15 distinct room categories in the resort; from the 441-square foot Lagoon View room to the lavish Beach Area Suite, guests can choose between several levels of comfort and privacy.

With Caribbean beaches featuring high on travelers’ wish lists, Fairmont Mayakoba takes things up a notch. The property keeps its private-access beach in pristine condition, cleaning them daily to ensure guests enjoy only the finest sands. While the beach is a great daytime option, guests can truly kick back at the private pools that many of the resort’s more luxurious rooms offer. 

One of the resort’s main goals is to respect the area’s extensive flora and fauna, so natural themes are patently visible in the property’s layout. With sustainability issues increasingly important for travelers, many have come to appreciate the property’s green credentials. 

Guests can also find several top-rated bars and restaurants in the resorts. Its cocktail bars are especially renowned for their expert baristas who create a variety of luxurious and sophisticated cocktails.
