In-keeping with its gigantic proportions, with the lobby and its 49 ft-high ceiling, the hotel, opened in 2004 and renovated after hurricane Wilma, is located within the 86 acre Iberostar complex. As its name suggests, Maya architecture and symbols are on display here, in various places, visible in the sculptures, reliefs, colours, and columns, etc. Without forgetting of course, the huge pyramid, as kitsch as can be, allowing you to distinguish this hotel from the others at a glance. The architecture of the place unfolds depending on the paths that you take. You will never get bored! 7 buildings with lifts house 432 rooms, each accommodating a maximum of 4 people. Some of the swimming pools are only accessible to the guests of the Maya hotel. The wooden paths within the complex allow you to enjoy a walk through the high vegetation. Comfortably seated on rubber rings, bathers can float along the resort's long and peaceful river. At Iberostar del Mar, a reconstructed Mayan temple overlooks the wave pool: Enough to keep children, teenagers and even adults happy! Nearby, the large pool devoted to activities boasts waterfalls and an aquatic bar beneath artificial rocks. Above it stands an ice cream bar. Behind it, there is a relaxation pool. The very large and airy spa has many wonderful amenities, separate changing rooms for men and women, a Temazcal, pools with water jets, stone sun loungers, a jacuzzi, Roman baths, etc. The huge club for kids has a nice play-pool (and a very varied activity programme). Nobody is ever forgotten, here is an example: one night club for adults, and one for teenagers. Opposite the reception of the hotels, you will find a very large area with various services for everyone: a huge church for wedding celebrations, an abundance of shops beneath the archways, a great hacienda, various restaurants, a merry-go-round, etc. Without forgetting the 18-hole golf course and its club-house near to the Maya hotel.
