Our Keep At Andaz Mayakoba • Kath Eats


We had a marvelous time on the Hyatt Andaz Mayakoba closing week. Right here’s a recap our our keep together with our suite and favourite facilities. 

I by no means know one of the best ways to construction weblog posts of a travel: chronologically, by means of matter, or by means of meals vs. actions. In response to what can be maximum useful for long term vacationers, right here’s what I determined: 

  • Put up 1: All about our lodge + breakfasts and lunches
  • Put up 2: Our 4 wonderful dinners
  • Put up 3: Spa + golfing existence (I can’t wait to inform you about The Rainforest spa enjoy!)

So keep tuned!

We had an ideal travel to the Andaz Mayakoba!

The Andaz Mayakoba truly blew us away, and I’m in a position to e-book it once more for a similar time subsequent yr! It got here extremely advisable by means of my sister, Laura Allen, who’s a shuttle marketing consultant with Fora. She idea we might like it how lush and herbal the valuables is and the number of eating places throughout the entire Mayakoba advanced. She was once proper! (In case you’re inquisitive about going, achieve out to her to e-book with perks for you!) 

As I’ve discussed a number of occasions, we booked our travel with Hyatt issues transferred from Chase Final Rewards. It nonetheless blows my thoughts that we paid not anything to take the sort of luxurious holiday (see this publish on how we additionally lined maximum of our food and drink). 

Simple Trip To Cancun

A part of the explanation this travel was once so nice is that we flew an immediate 3.5 hour flight from Washington Dulles to Cancun, and customs was once a breeze. This was once fairly the other shuttle enjoy after we went to Anguilla closing yr. Anguilla was once such a lot more difficult to get to with for much longer strains (and price an additional $500 in ferries/taxis). The customs line on the St. Maarten airport took FOREVER, in the meantime we simply walked via Cancun’s in about 10 mins. The Cancun airport may be beautiful great. I booked a van via USA Transfers that took us without delay to the lodge in about 45 mins for $110 general, plus pointers. 

We additionally hit up the Capital One Front room at Dulles and had some other fabulous enjoy! Get your self a Capital One Mission card to get wonderful meals and loose beverages each and every time you fly out of the few airports that experience them (Dallas, Dulles, Denver, up to now I consider). 

About Mayakoba

Mayakoba is a gated neighborhood with 4 other motels in a single: 

Whilst you need to keep on with the swimming pools/seaside/primary facilities of your lodge, you’ll use any of the eating places or spas and fee again in your room. In addition they all percentage a PGA golfing route and a couple of different commonplace facilities. There are golfing carts that pass between the motels together with motorcycles you’ll experience, so it’s truly simple to get round. We beloved being about to discover round with no need to pay for taxis. You’ll ask any attendant or hostess to request a golfing cart pickup, they usually come slightly briefly. 

Our influence from the appearances was once that Rosewood was once essentially the most unique, adopted intently by means of Banyan Tree, after which Fairmont and Andaz. We idea the meals was once best possible at Fairmont! The swimming pools have been additionally essentially the most spectacular (that we noticed) on the Fairmont, which was once not too long ago renovated. The Andaz had the most efficient seaside! We beloved the Andaz and would utterly keep there once more, particularly with the fantastic price of Hyatt issues. 

Andaz Mayakoba

The Andaz assets was once gorgeous, lush, tropical, and unfold out. In spite of it being a hectic time of yr, it didn’t really feel crowded, and the carrier was once very good. We arrived round 2pm and have been greeted within the open foyer known as The Sanctuary with cool popsicles! After checking in, a golfing cart took us to our suite. 

Our Suite

We booked a set within the seaside space that was once SUCH a just right name. We beloved our location, and it was once nice to stroll 10 steps to the seaside and pool, plus the eating place we had breakfast at 3/4 mornings. I’d indubitably suggest the seaside space. Our room didn’t have a view and was once at the basement degree, which was once a bit little bit of a bummer, however the inside of was once very really nice!

We had heaps of area, two balconies with a HEATED plunge pool, a rainshower, separate water closet, walk-in closet, and wonderful king mattress. Final yr when we went to the 4 Seasons we questioned if lets ever most sensible that luxurious. I’m glad to go with Andaz and say that this room was once as great or nicer than that one! 

On the 4 Seasons we had a plunge pool however it was once freezing and we by no means were given in it (even if we supposedly “heated” it someday). The pool we had on the Andaz was once the easiest temperature! Very particularly warm however now not too scorching that you simply couldn’t sit down in there for some time. We plunged (haha) on a daily basis after the seaside sooner than getting in a position for dinner.

We had a wonder looking ahead to us in our room from the Andaz and Laura Allen Trip: some goodies and a bottle of wine! So amusing!

The Seaside and Pool

We beloved the seaside space! The cushiony chairs have been so comfy, and the carrier was once nice. They introduced water to everybody, and it’s essential to order from the eating places close by: the Vegan Bar, Tinta del Pulpo or Sotavento. Once we arrived we settled proper in with some margs and guacamole! 

I did a bit pool swim within the afternoon. In contrast to the Anguilla pool, which was once freezing, this pool was once heat! There was once a 2d pool up on the most sensible of the valuables that we went to discuss with someday, however we simply love the sea sounds and consider, so we spent all of our time on the seaside. One more reason why we have been so satisfied we were given a room within the seaside space. 

After two days on the seaside, the rain inevitably blew in and we couldn’t pass out of doors a lot in any respect on our 3rd day. Our fourth day was once cloudy and windy and we made do with towel blankets within the afternoon. 

Stroll to Rosewood + Fairmont

The Rosewood and Fairmont are to the left and proper of the Andaz seaside, and we walked to each. If we had had extra sunny seaside days we most definitely would have loved the bars they’d at the water, however the rain/wind saved us inside of for the second one part of our travel. 

The Rosewood

Motorbike Journey

We went on a motorbike journey our first morning to discover the valuables. It’s beautiful simple to get lose, however Google Maps helped! There’s a nature path that circumvents the valuables and we adopted that round by means of the golfing route and to the Fairmont. We biked for 45 mins and most definitely simplest noticed 15% of Mayakoba!

Breakfast at Tinta del Pulpo

We loved 3/4 breakfasts at Tinta del Pulpo, which was once proper out of doors of our room. I LOVED those Grilled Avocado Tacos with poached eggs! I had them two times. We additionally shared a tropical fruit plate every day that was once so just right. Additionally to notice: they’d Nespresso machines within the rooms which have been just right for a get started however we went to Tinto for complete cups. You should additionally get espresso to head there. There may be breakfast at Cocina Milagro, however we didn’t really feel like getting a golfing cart to go up there. 

Doing a bit paintings with espresso sooner than breakfast!

Breakfast at Brisas

Sooner or later we walked to the Fairmont for breakfast at Brisas and beloved the wholesome alternatives there. I were given a inexperienced juice and a chia pudding! Thomas had essentially the most epic avocado toast. And all the time a variety of espresso. And the sea perspectives have been unbelievable! 

Solo Lunch at Cocina Milagro

I had a solo lunch at Cocina Milagro whilst Thomas was once {golfing}. Those shrimp tacos have been SO just right, and I had a lunch Mezcal cocktail that was once conceivable my favourite of the travel. It was once raining, however I ate beneath a lined patio.

Lunch at Brisas

On Sunday we went again to Brisas as a result of we beloved our breakfast there such a lot. I had a gem salad with puffed quinoa and an egg, plus guacamole and chips! Thomas had tacos. One among us were given tacos at virtually each and every meal!

My Assessment

Whilst I haven’t shared our dinners but, I sought after to percentage a snappy overview of our travel. We’d truly like to return! The benefit of having to and from Cancun plus the tropical climate plus the fantastic meals we loved left us with a 5 superstar overview. The meals truly was once exceptional, and we have been so inspired with the Andaz (and we will be able to be very choosy!!) I’d 100% suggest Mayakoba to you all!

Coming subsequent: dinner reports + spa existence!
