Compare Mayan Palace vs Grand Mayan vs Grand Bliss vs Grand Luxxe

Home » Compare Mayan Palace, Grand Mayan, Grand Bliss and Grand Luxxe

Folks are always asking us what the difference is between Mayan Palace, Grand Mayan, Grand Bliss, and Grand Luxxe units. If that wasn’t confusing enough, now there are the Spa Tower, Loft and Residence units. Scroll down for what we hope is a clear, concise and accurate description.

Mayan Palace

The Mayan Palace units are large and comfortable. If you are accustomed to hotels, you will love the suites with living area and kitchens. People are almost always happy with the Mayan Palace, unless they take a tour and see one of the more upscale units. The Mayan Palace pool and beach area in Riviera Maya is fantastic. The Mayan Palace units in Acapulco are almost brand new and have nice pool areas. In Acapulco, you can choose the Mayan Palace Golf location with kids pool and lazy river or the new Playa tower right on the beach of Acapulco Bay.

Grand Mayan

Grand Mayans offer larger suites, walk in showers, but the most notable upgrade are the large balconies with lounge chairs and a cooling pool. The décor uses more upscale materials. The Grand Mayan is our most popular rental unit. The Grand Mayans in Los Cabos and in Puerto Penascoare brand new construction. The Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta has a huge water park with lazy river, two wave pools, water slide and smaller kids area. Grand Mayans remain our most popular rentals.

Grand Bliss

A few steps away from the Grand Mayan in Nuevo Vallarta, The Grand Bliss is a lot quieter. The units are just a bit larger and more contemporary than the Grand Mayan. The other perk is the refrigerator in second bedroom / studio. Recently there are two new Grand Bliss buildings also in the Riviera Maya Vidanta resort. Grand Bliss guests in Nuevo Vallarta have access to the Grand Bliss pools that is serviced by the Chirnguito restaurant. Likewise, in Riviera Maya, Grand Bliss guests have access to the new Grand Luxxe / Grand Bliss beach club with pools and a restaurant of it’s own.

Grand Luxxe Amenities

The original Grand Luxxe units were built just recently. They are simply stunning in size and in amenities. The Grand Luxxe has a concierge for each 2 floors where there are only 8 units/floor.

Villa vs Suite (also called Condo)

To make choosing even more complex, the Grand Luxxe has corner units called Villas and center units called Suites (or Condos). The one bedroom units are almost identical in either type. However, the second bedroom or studio in the Villa is much larger with a separate living area that has a refrigerator and a microwave. It even has 2 small balconies of it’s own in some buildings. The second bedroom / studio unit in the "Luxxe Suite" also called the "Condo" (yes the terminology is confusing), is still huge, but without the living area and without the Fridge and Microwave that is in the villa.

Spa Tower, Loft and Residence.

Of course they couldn’t leave well enough alone with the Grand Luxxe. They upped their game yet again and developed the Spa Tower, Loft and the four bedroom residence, all under the Luxxe brand.

Spa Tower

The Spa Tower units have what we would call “softer” décor with wood floors and softer colors. The Three bedroom version has a separate massage room, so you can have your massage right in your suite. The two bedroom is really quite similar in size and layout to the Luxxe two bedroom suite.

Grand Luxxe Loft

It may not seem possible, but the new Loft units go a size bigger yet. Located in Nuevo Vallarta and in Riviera Maya, the two and three bedroom units are on two floors, with a Master ensuite on both floors. There are one bedroom and studio Loft units coming in December of 2016 in Nuevo Vallarta only.

The Four Bedroom Residence

We saved the best for last. If you have a large group, consider the Residence 4 bedroom. These units are over the top with personalized elevators that open right in your suite, wet bar, front and back patios, 4 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, washer/dryer, and over 5,000 square feet of living space. Impossible to overstate how great these suites are. Wait ! I forgot to mention the private residence-only pool and restaurant on the roof.
