The Grand Mayan in Cancun is comprised of 4 world-class resorts, bringing together the diverse native culture of the Mexican Riviera with stunning, state-of-the-art architecture inspired by rich Mexican traditions and incredible amenities including golf, swimming, fine dining, spas, theatres and so much more. You may have heard some questionable things about The Grand Mayan, or even rumblings of a ‘Grand Mayan scam,' but what do the people who have actually been there think? Among a recent storm of negative misinformation is a diverse assortment of great reviews from people who have experienced all that the Grand Mayan has to offer first-hand. What makes the Grand Mayan so grand? Let's take a look.
Unrivaled Flexibility Abounds Across Four Vibrant Resorts
After choosing to visit the Grand Mayan, where you'll be welcomed by 350 days of stunning sunshine and an average temperature of 78º F, you get to choose which resort to explore first. The classy minimalism of Los Cabos is belied by an extravagant range of luxurious amenities and the finest dining, sport fishing, and virgin beaches. Nuevo Vallarta immerses visitors in the local culture and heritage while offering all the creature comforts you could imagine, including an award-winning spa and lush green fairways of the Nayar Golf Course. Acapulco is inspired by ancient history and is situated in a traditional seaport, offering unparalleled ocean and mountain views. It's a great spot to bring kids with tons of exciting events and activities, but the wide array of nightclubs and bars ensures that the fun never ends for couples on romantic getaways. Last but not least, the crowned jewel of Riviera Maya brings a little bit of everything together on a 62-mile stretch of pristine, sandy beaches. The amenities in this paradise include an 18-hole golf course, tennis courts, a salon and spa, a fitness center, a game room for kids, a boutique row, childcare, and much, much more.
Stay For a Day or Join the Community
One of the great myths about the Grand Mayan is that it's only – or primarily – a fractional ownership resort. Stories of pushy sales presentations and complicated contracts are largely fictional, overshadowing a simple reality: the flexibility in accommodation is as diverse as the resorts themselves. Guests can stay through traditional hotel arrangements, while timeshare opportunities let the many returning visitors save big and secure priority access and other privileges. It's true that there are fractional ownership tours, sales presentations and agents on-hand to answer questions about real estate options, but these are all optional – no guest is under obligation to attend any sales meetings. However, visitors who opt into these events receive special gifts and other incentives to acknowledge the time they spend away from the many amenities at each resort. This means staying at the Grand Mayan can be an even better deal than you might expect from the already-affordable upfront rates. Contrary to popular belief, fractional ownership is a proven, innovative, accessible option that's trusted by real estate agents and owners worldwide; but it's only one of the many ways to enjoy the resorts at the Grand Mayan Cancun.
There's Always Something New at the Grand Mayan
Ownership at the Grand Mayan is so attractive because many guests choose to return year after year to their favorite resort. It's no wonder, too, because there's always something new at the Grand Mayan. Every major holiday is celebrated in grand ceremonies in a traditional Mexican style. The 4th of July includes gorgeous fireworks displays, beach cookouts, exclusive tropical drinks, and live music. New Year’s Eve is the biggest party of the year with non-stop entertainment. Thanksgiving includes special dining options inspired by rich American tradition, while Easter brings a whole new level of family fun to Cancun with delicious Easter Brunch and a generous chocolate egg hunt for kids. Finally, there’s no better way to escape the winter chills than Christmas in Mexico, where European and Mexican traditions combine for a warm, welcoming, festive day including delicious cuisine and an authentic ‘Posada' interpretation of the nativity tradition. While some internet forums and review boards are rife with misinformation about The Grand Mayan’s fractional ownership arrangement – or people who simply believe the rates and amenities are too good to be true – there's also plenty of proof that the beautiful resorts are truly world-class establishments with stunning financial accessibility. Long time residents and new visitors alike sing the praises of The Grand Mayan resorts, because they understand great value when they find it among the gorgeous shores of the Riviera.
