Overall I was very pleased with the Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya. The property is still relatively new, however it’s becoming more recognized in the area.

The resort is a quick 35 minute ride from the Cancún International Airport. You can arrange a shuttle service in advance, though there are plenty of cabs at the airport as well, which the most economical option getting here. If you’re looking to head to Playa del Carmen by La Quinta Avenida (5th Avenue) where all the shops, restaurants, and clubs are, that’s about a 20 minute drive from here.

Located in the Mayakoba Resort complex in addition to the Andaz, you’ll find the Fairmont Mayakoba, Riviera MayaRosewood Mayakoba and the Banyan Tree Mayakoba. The Andaz has 214 guest rooms, 2 outdoor pools including a whirlpool and a lap pool.
