    We had bed bugs in our room. The management replied to my complaint saying thay they couldn’t find anything in my room. I have pictures with hundreds of bites on my body. Mahekal is disgusting.

    The staff was wonderful, kind and helpful. The location was very easy to get to via the Colectivo from Cancún which is a huge plus. Your worries and cares will melt away as soon as you step foot onto the property. The poolside bar is a great place to hangout and being served drinks on the beach is never a bad thing. Loved this place.

    Located just by the beach Good selection of the pools (3 choices) Nicely equipped gym Close to the main pedestrian zone Nice “jungle look” and cozy feeling of design Spacious rooms Good kitchen

    Very concerning “bag spraying” by the staff straight in front of your hammocks Loud dirt cleaning with machines disturbing relax by the pool instead of old fashion silent broom in the relax zone Very overpriced massages

About

Overview

Mahekal Beach Resort is a fun and exciting hotel located right in Mexico's most famous resort town, Playa del Carmen. The area around the property is just as much a draw for visitors as the resort itself.

Playa del Carmen is a town that is always alive with music, events, and natural beauty to enjoy. Those looking to learn and explore can take a short trip away from Mahekal to see the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza and Tulum, Coba. In the other direction, guests will find world-class coral reefs for exploring while snorkeling or scuba diving.

Mahekal has many rooms that can be arranged in several different configurations depending on how many guests will be visiting. The rooms themselves have primarily the same accommodations, the main differences are the views offered by each one. Guests who want views of the water will want an Oceanfront room, while those wanting to enjoy the lush gardens should book the Treehouse King, with the largest view of Mahekal expansive tropical gardens.

Hungry guests will have plenty of dining options to choose from. There are six full-sized restaurants available, as well as in-room dining for visitors who would rather enjoy their meals in the comfort of their suites. A few of the on-site restaurants include Cocina Restaurant, which offers visitors a buffet of regional Mexican, Yucatan, and Latin American dishes. There is also Las Olas, which serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner with nightly specials and international fare.
