The VIDANTA Grand Mayan resort is truly a five star++ first-class hotel and has been listed as among the 25 top LUXURY Resorts in Mexico.
There is marble and tiles throughout the suite, private hot tubs and the largest swimming pools in Mexico. The beaches are wide and sandy. Rent includes twice-daily maid service, hotel amenities, and transfers from Airport.
The suite comes with a large living room with a well-equipped kitchen with fridge, cooktop, microwave and small appliances. Each bedroom has a king-size bed plus a single sofa bed.
The GRAND Mayan is located in the exclusive Mayan Riviera on the Caribbean Sea, 35 minutes from the Cancun International Airport, 45 minutes from downtown Cancun, and 15 minutes from Playa del Carmen and the ferry to Cozumel. It is home to the Cirque du Soleil in Mexico. Among its principal attractions, this extensive mega-resort has many pools including an interactive, interconnected swimming pool, which covers an overall 8000-square-meter water surface, making it one of the biggest in Latin America. There are also luxurious spas and fully equipped gyms.
My wife and I have spent many vacations at the GRAND Mayan in Riviera Maya. The pool area is spectacular, and the beach is clean clean clean! There was a major beach renewal recently, including development of an exclusive Beach Club. I went scuba diving off the hotel reef - the most amazing experience!
Resort restaurants are first class and compare well with the best eateries in nearby Playa del Carmen. Email me for pics and suggestions of where to eat and what to see.
The resort also has a Jack Nicklaus-designed golf course; ask about special golf and spa packages.

About Ed Fine
My wife and I enjoy our vacations in Mexico immensely. The Vidanta Grand Mayan at the Riviera Maya is close to interesting Mayan ruins, and ecological sightseeing. The people at all the Grand Mayan resort are very friendly and the service is first class - plus! The on-site restaurants are superb, as are the spa and other facilities. We usually buy some bread, cheese, yogourt, veggies and fruit at the convenience store on site and have breakfast in our suite, enjoy a poolside snack at lunch and have a gourmet dinner at one of the resort restaurants. We are particularly fond of Tremonto where we have had some of our best meals ever, as well as the theme buffets with live entertainment at the Del Lago and dancing to latin bands at the beachside Havana Moon. There is plenty to do for couples and families of all ages.
Why Ed Fine chose Playa del Carmen
We (and our guests) enjoy full access to the spa and golf course. The resorts are very ecologically conscious with a flamingo sanctuary on site and crocodile hatchery near the golf course. The turtle release program has trebled the survival rate of theese amphibians, who return to lay eggs after 8 years.
What makes this Hotel unique
I can offer a discount on golf at the Jack Nicklaus-designed "El Maglar" golf course on site.

A WEEK IN PARADISE!!
Traveled with Daughter, grandson, another 4 person family to Vidanta Grand Mayan 1st of July. This was my 5th, their 2nd trip to this piece of Paradise! The 2 bedroom rooms were perfect for family w/teens and my 1 bedroom room was so big!!! Full kitchens and two bathrooms made room for everyone and fixing breakfast was easy. Taxi's take you to close by grocery stores and Vedanta staff brings purchases back to your room. Speaking of staff: every single person working there is there to make sure YOU have a fantastic time. Greetings and smiles all around! The grounds are meticulously cared for and the vegetation is absolutely beautiful.
We discovery a new (at least since our last visit) BEACH CLUB!!! OVER THE TOP!!! Restricted to certain levels of guests, beautifully laid out, personal care and assigned wait person. The Beach Club faces the beautiful blue ocean and has lovely small pools, with deluxe lounge chairs.
We ate at the Havana Moon, a few times because it has something for everyone's taste and the breeze and view of the ocean are super! We also ate at the GONG, delicious Chinese - where I had 3 appetizers for my meal. Everyone was delighted with their selections! Also enjoyed an "adult" dinner at the Italian restaurant..Superb high quality food and impeccable service! Also went for a last day breakfast at the Green Break, a casual good dining restaurant by the golf course. Omelets were outstanding, and fresh jellies - umm.
All the ladies enjoyed a wonderful relaxing massage at the SPA....such a break and so serene!
Check in and out are super easy and the new "transportation hub" works great! We did two all day activities: A tour of Tulum and swimming in a "cenoto" (underground river) that was the highlight of my trip. The rest were thrilled with our "snorkeling with whale/sharks" adventure. Again, completely arrange through the resort.
For our group this is the "go too" place for the perfect resort vacation! I'm sure we will book this again.
Thanks to Ed Fine for making this reservation so easy, no problems whatsoever!!! That's what you want for a trip like this! We will be sure to book through Ed again!
Exceptional service. Daily housekeeping and towel service done daily. Would highly recommend.
Great stay...I had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend.
We had a wonderful time at this resort. The grounds were absolutely beautiful. The room seemed very clean and was exactly as represented. Our questions to Mr Fine were answered promptly and graciously. We would definitely return to this fabulous resort for another relaxing vacation.
Very nice resort
We liked it very much. They have anyone internal transportation sistem that has to improve. Everything else very good.
Grand Luxxe. Beautiful 5* Resort. Great fun for the family.
We stayed at the Grand Luxxe at the Grand Mayan. The entire place was extremely well run. Almost like a Disney park. I mean that in the way of excellent service and very clean.
We ate at almost all the restaurants.
Burger Custom- Really good good burgers and apps
Gong- Sushi items and dumplings were awesome. The grilled fish entrees not good.
Frieda's- Great Mole. Very authentic tasting. Stay away from the "Mexican Pizza". No good.
Blanche- Breakfast buffet- Really good and cheap.
Havana Moon- Really Really Good. Red Curry was the best dish of the trip
Tacos Break- Pastor tacos are a must. Had them twice.
Greenbreak- Rueben sandwich was very good. Burger was as well.
Room Service- Was actually good.
The pools were all very different.
Grand Luxxe- Very quiet and relaxing. Food comes from Burger custom
Grand Mayan- Huge. Multiple pool bars. Didn't feel packed.
Beach Club- Felt like a fun Vegas pool.
Went to the late show. It was really good. Only about 1 hr 15 min. Any seat is fine. Do not upgrade or pay to get closer to the center. There is no reason.
I knew a driver from last time and the resort didn't want us to leave. They want you to book tours through them and make it hard for you to get out. Demand rides to the front gate. Also there is lots to do and see down by Tulum. This resort is far from that area. It's a hour plus drive. Traffic was bad during Holy Week.
Overall we would definitely come back. We had a great week.
Amazing Stay at a World-Class Resort
Fabulous! That's the best one word description of our stay at the Grand Mayan. Suite was huge and immensely comfortable for our family of 5. Living room was great for entertaining, and the six seat dining table was perfect for enjoying the delicious room service. Restaurants at this Vidanta complex were incredible! Amazingly high quality gourmet food preparation with great attention to detail and presentation, and service was absolutely top-notch from the staff. Would put them up against the finest anywhere in the world! Every employee at this extraordinarily large resort complex was so attentive and kind! You do not see this level of guest attention from every employee anywhere else. The pools and grounds are exquisitely beautiful and meticulously maintained at all times. This was the cleanest resort we have ever encountered anywhere. Twice daily maid service kept the rooms tidy, clean and beautifully maintained at all times, and the nightly turndown service, including the perfect making of sofa beds, was so nice to experience. Can't say enough how great our stay was, and Ed was a pleasure to deal with and provided great advice about how to make the most of staying at this Vidanta property and what to do around Playa del Carmen - Thank You, Ed!
