There is always something going on around the pool area. Truth be told, the bartending lessons, are a bit corny and touristy. Depends on how much you are willing to act stupid for free drinks. They do some cool things ( by my standards) like an intro to scuba lesson where they let you try out the equipment and see if you would ever want to pursue it further. There is a kids area where the staff always has something fun going on for the younger crowd. The really younger crowd (5 to 10 years old). The pool area is beautifully lit at night and is a very a nice place to take a stroll after dark. Just don’t get shocked by the occasional staff with scuba gear cleaning the pool 🙂
In addtion to dozens of pools, there is now a permanent Cirque du Soleil show right on the resort grounds. This unique venue includes the option of a dinner theater. The dinner is a bit pricey but worth every penny. Fun for the whole family can be had at the Jungala Water Park, also right on the resort grounds.
The pictures on this website are not touched up. Some of the Riviera Maya resort photos were taken by our friend John Uplinger. He rented a week from us over Christmas and was kind enough to bring back photos. He has provided a sample of what you can expect at the Mayan Palace and the Grand Mayan Riviera Maya (Cancun). Picture yourself under a palapas by the expansive pool and looking out over the azure waters of the Caribbean at the same time! For more details of the Grand Mayan accomodations click: Grand Mayan Accomodations (Floorplans) or Mayan Palace Mayan Palace Accomodations (Floorplans)The photos attempt to give you a visual image of what the Mayan Riviera version of the Mayan Palace is like. The room photos here are of a typical Mayan Palace unit at this resort. Of course, a photo never really compares to the real thing. We hope you enjoy the golf, beach, spa, pool, and restaurant photos. All beautiful and all included.
