Distinguished from other beach hotels by its entrance right on the sand, Playa Maya offers clean, comfortable rooms, personal service, and a quiet location one block from Quinta Avenida that removes it from the street activity. Fresh off a 2014 remodel, guest rooms come in many configurations. They are not luxurious, but they are bright and spacious, with mini-fridges and cable TV. Many have balconies with glorious ocean views, and some have kitchenettes. The included breakfast is fresh and more generous than most. Depending on weather and current conditions (which change constantly), the beach directly in front of the hotel can be rocky; better swimming conditions are a short walk away. Minimum stays are required, but the hotel maintains a list of shorter stays available between other bookings.
