The Banyan Tree Mayakoba resort is perfect for families who want a luxurious stay coupled with a fantastic location on the Yucatan Peninsula. Accommodations are very spacious and provide modern appliances. Guests can choose from a variety of poolside villas, ranging from one to three bedrooms. Families may want to stay in one of the roomier three-bedroom, three-story townhouses — fitting up to six people. Three gourmet restaurants serve Asian, Mexican and Thai delicacies.
If your family enjoys golf, check out Mayakoba’s beachfront El Camaleon Golf Club — with a course that hosted Mexico’s first PGA tours. Also, Banyan runs an ecological Mangrove Boat Tour, which brings guests closer to the local wildlife. Kids have a special program where they can join in fun activities together on a daily basis. Besides meeting other children, they will be able to play board and video games, watch movies, go on eco tours and do beach activities.

Gorgeous property, !!, VERYYY expensive, had a complaint one night in the restaurant and went to the mgr. (he never got back to us or never heard from them, didnt care I guess). the food in the restaurant is great but $$$$ .. just feel it is way over priced.. but beautiful hotel and property
Everything is amazing here. The private villas are very quiet and peaceful. The staff is very friendly and the food is great. It’s in Mayakoba which is sort of like it’s own little gated city and very safe. And the water is filtered so you can safely brush your teeth, shower, etc.
