For a kid-friendly resort experience that doesn’t skimp on elegance, the Banyan Tree Mayakoba makes for an appealing beachfront oasis.
If you’re looking for a resort that boasts both stylish architecture and stunning natural beauty, a kid-friendly atmosphere, and lots of on-site amenities and activities, look no further than the Banyan Tree Mayakoba Resort in Playa del Carmen. The options here are endless, beginning with the eclectic dining options—all of which are rated highly by guests and critics alike. And, whether you’re working on your handicap or playing for the love of the game, playing through the 18 holes at El Camaleon—home to the annual Mayakoba Golf Classic, the only PGA Tour event in Mexico—is a must.
Of course, after a long day at the golf course, you’ll want to unwind in your own private paradise, and the rooms here fit that bill perfectly. Each of the Banyan Tree’s luxury villas is quite large and showcase the same impeccable eye for design you’ll see on the rest of the property. On top of that, each comes with its own private garden area, complete with its own pool—meaning you won’t have to compete for a lounge chair when it comes time to go for a swim.
Staying at the Banyan Tree puts guests in the prime location of trendy Playa del Carmen, where modern luxury mingles with traditional Mexican culture and cuisine. This secluded destination offers a luxurious resort experience just a short drive north from the trendy shops and restaurants of busy Fifth Avenue.
The area is just a short ferry ride away from the island of Cozumel, where all the ingredients for a fun-filled, day-long excursion are offered. Excellent beaches like Playa Corona and Playa Uvas, world-renowned snorkeling and scuba diving sites are just the beginning of Cozumel’s allure. Chankanaab Beach Adventure Park—one of the island’s most popular attractinos—has snorkeling, swimming with dolphins and more. Head inland and you can explore the famed Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá or swim in the natural blue waters of a cenote.
