There are often sales on Jetsetter and Travelzoo

Keep in mind that the base villas do not have heated pools

I stayed in banyan tree Macua. The experience was amazing. Beautiful place, very clean, top notch service, private pool plus hot tub. Worth every penny IMO.

Mayakoba is a gated community with security

People I know who have been to both like Banyan Tree better.

There's also Nizuc now - with a kosher restaurant.
I remember when a coke was a nickel, and you could buy VRs in OD.

Just checked and it looked awesome but villas were like $800 a night.  Where is the restaurant?  Is this in addition to food from Chabad?

Cool! But most rooms don't have private pools unlike Banyan.

You mentioned Kosher restaurant,  where is that? In hotel?

Thanks for sharing.  That's nuts.  I've obviously seen recommended hotels but never seen a Chabad single out a hotel to tell travelers to essentially boycott it so people must have had some out of the ordinary bad experiences there...
