Resort Profile

Like its nearby sister property Viva Wyndham Azteca, the Viva Wyndham Maya is a more economical choice in the upscale Playacar neighborhood just south of Playa del Carmen. The grounds can be loud and crowded with kids, the pools are relatively small and not overly impressive (though there’s a swim-up bar here, which isn’t the case at the Azteca), the rooms are basic and fairly plain, on-site dining variety is below average for an all-inclusive, and the food is only mediocre at best; but the property offers a wide stretch of outstanding white-sand beach, a good kids club, live entertainment at night, and an easy walk to the beach from all rooms. The high quality beach here helps the Overall Beach Resort Rating a good amount, raising it from the lower B range to the middle B range. Activities include trapeze and juggling lessons (highly unique), scuba diving, free bike rentals, rock climbing, sailing, kayaking, windsurfing, archery, and stand-up paddleboarding. Snorkeling, parasailing, jet skiing, and golf are also available in the immediate vicinity. Guests have access to the amenities and restaurants of sister resort Viva Wyndham Azteca, which is within walking distance but not right next door (it’s four resorts down, which is about 500 yards).

Departure COVID-19 testing is available on-site, for a fee.

The TripValue score compares a resort’s Overall Beach Resort Rating to its average room price (which we express as the Price-Implied Rating). It tells you if the resort is relatively underpriced (a positive TripValue), overpriced (a negative TripValue), or fairly priced (an Even TripValue), on average.
