Upon arriving to the resort, we were greeted with cold hand towels, a tour of the property and one of the Fairmont Mayakoba’s signature cocktails. I couldn’t get over how huge the resort is. Our room was within walking distance from the main pool, a couple of restaurants and the main lobby, but I was super grateful for all of complimentary golf cart rides to and from the beach. We also had the option to rent bikes to explore the resort.

Packing Tips:

  1. Bring plenty of SPF and mosquito repellent spray! I also suggest a sun hat for extra protection from the sun.
  2. Lightweight clothes and sleeveless tops are key to surviving the heat in the Maya Riviera because it is beyond hot and humid there!
  3. The resort is huge and even though they offer complimentary golf cart rides to and from the beach, restaurants, the spa and your room, I recommend packing some comfortable walking shoes so you can explore the area yourself.

The resort is not all-inclusive, but it does have seven delicious restaurant options for you to enjoy and create a meal package prior to your stay. The Fairmont Mayakoba also offers in-room dining. We loved all of the restaurants because most of them offered fresh guacamole and warm fries, but keep reading to hear more about my favorite one.

This resort has plenty of pools, which is so nice because you never have to worry about an overly-crowded pool.

We kicked off our first full day with with breakfast at La Laguna followed by a boat tour along the Maya Riviera and nice long massage at the Willow Stream Spa.

We loved eating lunch on the beach at Las Brisas everyday! Their guacamole and lobster tacos are amazing! I also loved their chopped salad!

During our stay we got to visit the Fairmont Mayakoba town followed by a mezcal and craft beer tasting and food pairing. Las Brisas did a fabulous job with the food pairing. We loved everything especially the seafood risotto.

Each morning we enjoyed the most delicious breakfast at La Laguna restaurant, which also  serves lunch and dinner too. Their chocolate chip pancakes are to die for!

The infinity pool by the beach was my absolute favorite hangout spot at the resort because you get to enjoy the breeze and the view of the beach without having to actually walk on the beach. Plus that’s where they keep all the best snacks and drinks.

My absolute favorite restaurant at the Fairmont Mayakoba is El Puerto, which serves up Latin-Asian dishes in a social and lively setting with a menu of dim sum, antojitos, sushi and seasonal ceviches. I especially love the Black Cod, Shrimp Fried Rice, Angry Tuna Roll, Vegitariano Roll and the Charred Tuna Won Ton tacos.

The best part of the trip was getting to spend time with all of my blogger friends. I even made some new friends too.
