U.S. News Review

Thanks to its secluded perch along Playa del Carmen's northern coast, Banyan Tree Mayakoba offers vacationers what it describes as a mixture of "luxury, nature and serenity." Staying at this Asian-inspired resort affords guests easy access to the Riviera Maya's maze of mangrove forests, freshwater lagoons and, of course, the second-largest coral reef system in the world. Apart from communing with nature, guests can unwind in their villas, which feature Mayan-inspired decor, floor-to-ceiling windows and private pools and sundecks. If you're not one to stay cooped up, Banyan Tree Mayakoba also features a bevy of on-site facilities, including the Greg Norman-designed El CamaleĆ³n Golf Course, Sands Beach Club and a spa that pampers with signature treatments like The Rainforest Indulgence hydrothermal therapy session. The resort's numerous dining facilities also earn praise, but for an unforgettable meal, book a seat aboard the romantic Ixchel dinner boat, which cruises through the scenic Mayakoba lagoon.
