Mayakoba is a complex of four luxury hotels facing the Caribbean Sea in Riviera Maya, close to both Cancun and Tulum. Each hotel has a beautiful beach, lagoons, swimming pools, gourmet dining, and spas. When I visited, you could stay at one hotel, dine at any of the others, and charge it all back to your room.
Two of the hotels have sales this season:
Andaz Mayakoba — where I stayed when I visited — is giving customers 10% off on bookings until December 21, 2021, for stays from now through April 30, 2022. Find out more here.
Fairmont Mayakoba has deals for up to 30% off daily rates until November 29 for travel dates through March 31, 2022. I recommend joining Accor’s free membership program to take an extra 10% off, and paying extra for the all-inclusive option since you’ll eat most meals there. Find out more here.
The hotel sits on a majestic bluff overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, up the hill from the quaint and charming town of Watch Hill. Taylor Swift’s home — where she has famously hosted star-studded Fourth of July parties — happens to be next door.
